Whenever I cross the homeland borders, something bizarre happens to me. I’m usually a positive person, but my optimism escalates when I return from a foreign country. I talk out loud, engage in small talk, and smile like a monkey.

The thing is, it only lasts about two weeks until I am sucked back by the atmosphere of Czech society.

My friends always ask me why do I love traveling so much. What makes it so special. I’m not quite sure what to answer. I always create explanations, which, to be honest, do not really make sense. …

I live in two worlds. One is blue and shiny, and the other one is grey and filled with deep canyons. I love living in the first one. It’s peaceful, happy, and I appreciate every second I’m alive there. The other world is, on the other hand, tough to live in. I feel miserable and lost in this world. One day I get up energized, and another one, I get out of bed devastated and confused by my feelings. Anxious feelings.

I am not exactly sure how these two worlds coexist, but somehow they do and pretty well. …

Today’s world holds several types of humor, and each one is unique in its own way. For example, if you use self-deprecating humor, it’s a sign you have good self-awareness and can disparage yourself. On the other hand, if you decide to go with a slapstick, you are probably bold and have great acting skills. And if you’re more of a hyperbole type, your imagination is probably bigger than the whole universe.

One person can enjoy and be good at numerous types of humor, but one mind can’t comprehend them all.

Some people only manage to understand light humor, which…

Corporate companies dominate the world as thousands of people are fighting over each other to have the experience of working at one.

I had a chance to work at corporates, and it was eye-opening. Well-known companies allowed me to see what’s their secret to success. Recipes that no one knows, and everyone only wonders about. I felt important to be one of them.

Yet, large corporates also have their obstacles. A complicated organizational structure makes it impossible for you to interact with customers and feel any kind of pleasure from their satisfaction. …

One of the hardest things about reaching your goals is seeing other people succeed before you. People you know, your friends, or influencers expose their life on social media day-to-day. With every post they share, they unintentionally plant a seed full of questions into your mind.

The paradox is it’s not always influencers or social media that causes the wonder of the unknown. You also see random people living the life you wish to have. You happen to know what their life is like. Where they live, work, or who they are with.

Have you ever admired someone so much…

Driving can be challenging when you are in a different country. Signs you have never seen before, traffic lights of different sizes and colors, or narrower lanes can make you feel like a complete idiot.

Commonly, two different countries slightly vary in traffic rules, but the modification can be substantial when comparing two different continents.

Europe and the USA have very distinct traffic regulations and habits. Many tourists don’t even realize that until they rent a car. Manual transmission is only one of many surprises waiting for them on the European cracky roads.

If you think about taking a trip…

Expressing your honest thoughts about problems your closest ones are dealing with can sometimes be helpful. It can bring attention to things your friends otherwise neglect. By telling them what they don’t know or see, you can contribute to their happiness.

Just because you say something negative or discouraging doesn’t mean you will hurt someone. However, sometimes it can happen. People forget that there is a specific time to express all unsaid thoughts and a certain time when it’s better to be quiet and give your friend support.

I got inspired to write this story by a few of my…

About three years ago, I was at a small party with my back then-boyfriend. I remember they played the Empire State of Mind. My body only wanted to dance, and my soul craved to meet new people. My boyfriend was one of the best people I have ever dated.

When I needed him beside me, he was always there. When I was sad and depressed, he was able to cheer me up within a few seconds. That night, however, he did something I didn’t expect. He told me something I didn’t have the slightest idea of, which has changed my…

Do you ever feel so passionate about something that you want to invest all your time and effort into it? You love what you do so much that you sometimes forget about the world around you. All you care about is to create new ideas, practice, learn. You want your work to be impeccable, flawless.

After months of trying to reach perfection, there comes the exciting part. You are about to perform, compete or hit the submit button. As simple as it sounds, this step can bring a good amount of anxiety, fear, and self-destruction into one's mind. …
