I owe you an explanation by Misha Lyuve

“a life unexamined is not worth living” — Socrates

I like when things move fast. So when on December 29th I was walking through Central Park and had an idea to start ART BEAUTY LIFE blog, next day I published my first posting. I took 200 emails of my friends and acquaintances and made them my audience. And now, three months into writing the blog, I can finally explain what is behind it and extend you an invitation on a journey.

Let’s start with three thoughts:

My life is great, with a harmonious marriage and a loving family, a successful career in one of ”best to work for” companies and excitement of living in New York city, travels, hobbies…  

It doesn’t matter what a brilliant gift I’m given – in time I will turn it into something mundane, unexciting and unattractive. (By the way, are you any different?)

A small consistent effort on my part to be present in my daily activities goes long way in keeping depth, freshness and excitement of my experience.

Listen, I’m no expert in anything and there are plenty experts out there already. ART BEAUTY LIFE blog is a means to stay conscious about life and its surroundings, make art more accessible and relevant to life, and allow art and beauty into every moment. 

And this is the journey that I’m on.

And I am inviting you to join me.

    It sounds like you are disappointed with the gifts you receive, and feel you’re not worthy of them. Try this:
    Next time you are given a gift..look at it with ‘love’ remember that it was given to you ‘with love’, people thought about ‘you’ when they bought it. you were special to them. Feel happy that they felt it was ‘good’ to give you something that would remind you of them. Good feelings always find their way round like a circle, you send good vibes to others and it will be returned to you. Feel warmth for others and they’ll return the same. :)
