How to be the green light in the life of your loved ones, Feat. Albert Einstein

They say that life is not what happens to you, but how you react to what happens to you.
Depending on your perspective, belief system and point of view, life can be so interesting, unexpected, surprising, beautiful, or challenging, frightening, stressful and exhausting.
You can't control what is happening and very often you can't influence the outcome either. But you can influence your feelings and your mindset about it.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. 
Albert Einstein [1879-1955]

You can't influence people or events, but you can influence your feelings, your reactions and your expectations toward people and events. In short, you can influence yourself.

Furthermore you can choose which persons are going to be part of your life, part of your network, part of your day. And you can do even more: you can help them, support them, be there for each one of them and make a difference in their life.

[Colorful and somehow rainbow-like signal light in Berlin, 
January 2013]

You can be their rainbow on a rainy day, or just a very special signal light with an encouraging green light that says: "Go, you can do it!".
You can make a difference in their life, in your life and in the world. How? Day after day, smile after smile, step by step.

Do you believe it? Can you do it?
And even more important: do you want it?
