You Got Friend-Zoned?


You got friend-zoned, or even worse, and you don’t like it. Or she just ignores you because she thinks you don’t care. You wanted it or not, now you’re there and would REALLY like to get out of there and get back your privileged sweetheart place. This is not easy, but not impossible either. Remember the times you left things to slip away because you were not sure about what you wanted, because you didn’t ask the questions you should have asked, or when you jumped on superficial (and even stupid) conclusions and hurried to throw them into her face without even thinking this could hurt and make her step back, ridiculously hoping she was going to prove you the contrary. Or you simply thought (still think…) your pride was much more important than happiness.

What could you do?

Remember what attracted her to you in the first place. Your lovely smile, a nice way of looking at her, little things you’ve done to help her, a few words in a message to show her you think of her. There are lots of things you might have noticed. It’s no guarantee you can still win her heart, but if you really like her, give it a try, it might well work. Or it might not, but it’s worth taking the risk. A sad face, avoiding her, and be caught looking at her when you think she’s not seeing you won’t help AT ALL.  She won’t make a move because she’s already tried and you didn’t want to pay attention. Don’t wait forever if you don’t want to see her flashing a smile to another man or even worse, going out with him.

First, make sure you find out what she likes: going to movies, dancing, going for a drink, going for a walk and talking. And I am not saying you should come straight away with a huge bunch of flowers, or… this is up to you, but this could seem a little over the top.

It’s high time you be the one who knows what you want, you’re not 15 anymore.

Good luck with this, maybe it’s not too late, you cannot know if you don’t try?

Love,

Dan

Is stress a reason to be Rude? I don’t think so


Yesterday, at the airport, a woman accompanied by four teenagers, at the check-in desk. She literally vomited the ‘good morning’ which seemed to hurt her throat. The customer assistant’s expression said ‘hey, another rude creature, let’s deal with It quickly’. One passenger on the list was missing, so she had to ask if he was not traveling and a reason to be mentioned. ‘Well, he’s not traveling, that’s it’, snapped back the Rude. ‘I have to mention a reason, could you please give me one?’ ‘He’s not coming, I told you’ ‘Well, should we say he’s ill?’ The Rude became red in the face and gritted teeth, ready to explode. The assistant ignored her and went on patiently. Passports were controlled, one after the other, information was input in the computer, luggage was tagged and sent, one after the other. At a moment, the Rude said to the boys next to her ‘Pffff, it takes an eternity’. The assistant looked up and told her ‘Next time, please use the machines at your disposal, you’ll definitely save lots of time’. The Rude took the chance to be even ruder and snapped back ‘Well, you are so disagreeable, you started the day in a bad mood’. ‘My attitude is a reflection of yours, as simple as that’, responded the assistant. The Rude seemed to choke with her own stupid arrogance. I so much liked the assistant’s response. A few minutes ago, I had just heard some passengers saying to her ‘you are really kind, you made my day, I haven’t had such a good service for a while’. I smiled. She gave the deserved answer, she was smart. Hard work to face rude people hiding behind stress. No excuse. These last days the airport was a noisy, overcrowded, hot place one would only want to flee. Yet, there are people who work there, patiently, resiliently, or simply lovely, most of the times for long hours without being able to go and get a glass of water or even go to the toilet. No one is entitled to shed their personal frustration, personal mistakes on them, no one. All you can do is to be polite, nice if you feel like and swallow back your nastiness, nobody needs it.

We are all kindly invited to lock our rudeness back home. It would be very much appreciated. And have a nice flight.

Thanks God there are so many nice people though…

With <3,

Dan

Be Alive, Live Today!


(Credits for the photograph on Pinterest)

In my forties, don’t ask which side ;-), I feel much closer to people in their thirties, again don’t ask which side. My daughter used to say ‘sometimes I feel you are closer to my friends than myself” and also ‘why don’t you get a guy of your age?’ Not because everything is explainable, but this time it is, indeed. And the answer is straightforward: younger people are ALIVE. I am not talking about sex (not only! a wink is compulsory here) but mainly about energy, hopes, dreams, passion, eagerness to live a 200% life, wish to find out about life and love, thirst of innovation and so many other exciting things in life. They are always passionate, less turned toward leaking wounds and bitterness, past and revenge, painting things in black and avidly searching for others’ defaults. They want to discover life with far less judgment than the forty’s generation. Many men in my age are stuck in conventions, often false!, in keeping up appearances, in showing off. And they are tired, forget their dreams and hopes, feel down, most of the time depressed, clinging to the past, with serious thoughts of retirement and very attached to their habits, comfort and comfort zone. Of course, they are not all the same, fortunately, yet there are many of them like this. I’m not criticizing or judging, it’s just my way of seeing and feeling things, and I wanted to share this with you.

Have a passionate life and expect the Impossible, because it means Possible ultimately. Live as if it were your last day and make the most of it! Tomorrow it might be too late, so no regrets J

With Lots of Love,

Dan

One Cannot Lie to a Child or a Pet


This is true, no way one can fool a child or a pet. They all feel our intentions and feelings even if they cannot talk yet! A child or a pet who are not loved feel it immediately, they are not concerned with social appearances and conventions. Their guts are much more sensitive than anyone’s and it is useless to try and make them believe something which is not true. What they need is genuinity, not words.

The first thing they all notice is the way we feed them. Is the food good, healthy, made with love? If we say ‘well, at least they have something in their plate’ is not genuine love. Put a chunk of meat badly cooked in front of them and say ‘eat it, it will keep you alive’ and of course they will eat, no choice, but the taste is not there, love and care is not there and these two are the most important ingredients.

So, what if today, we choose to show them we REALLY love and care about them? And, what is even more important is that we are able to help other people to spread these powerful feelings of love and care? How do you feel seeing people reactions in front of genuinity? How would you feel seeing your power of making others happy?

This is the aim of our family company: to make your pets happy with good and healthy food. And if you have a generous soul, share it with your friends who have pets, it costs you nothing and it’s so rewarding.

Let’s get in touch and see how we can all contribute to others happiness. It is so easy!

Today Is A Special Day!


I have so many things to write about, one idea brings another, but today I will just ask you a question and will be delighted to read all your answers.

My question is: What thought makes you happy right now? 

Think about a thing or a person who lighten you up when you think of: the blue sky, the rain, the sun, a flower, a person you love, your pet, a book you are reading or heard about, a song, a project you’ve been thinking about for a long time, something you accomplished and you are soooo proud of. There is always at least one thing, just one thing, which makes your life worth living.

What is this thing? Just write down a word, or two, or many, there is no limit.

With lots of Love,

Dan

What do you feed your beloved pets?


 It’s been a while I’m searching this question through reading specialized articles, talking to honest vets who put our furry friends’ health first (yes, there are some, fortunately!)

BUT… what about pets’ « parents » who are proclaiming they love their precious furry friends but take them to a walk for only ten minutes in the morning and in the afternoon and who are buying into ads of big brands which poison their pets but take their beloved to the vet’s lots of times to ease their consciences.

Don’t get me wrong, but I cannot understand this kind of behaviour. Yet, healthy food for pets exists AND this is not more expensive than the industrial food which benefits from millions invested in aggressive ads to get back billions from all those who rather turn a blind eye to a plethora of so well documented articles. What’s even worse is that they turn a blind eye on their faithful friends’ health condition.

A little more than one year ago I’ve found an exceptional small company who is preparing excellent food for pets and I recommend it to all my friends, colleagues and all those who are looking for healthy food for their pets. The big advantage, apart from the fact we REALLY care about your furry friends is that the parcels are dropped in front of our doors, for those of us who live in Switzerland. For people who live in France, they get their orders at their workplace.

Still hesitate? Come for a tasting afternoon for your furry friends.

You can contact me @ +336 74 05 1664 or danielaagres@yahoo.co.uk and please put in the subject line “Natural food for my cat/dog”

Hear from you soon!

Quelle nourriture donnez vous à vos animaux chéris?


Ça fait un moment que j’étudie cette question en lisant des articles sur des sites spécialisés, en discutant avec des vétérinaires honnêtes qui mettent la priorité sur la santé de nos amis à fourrure (y en a, heureusement !). Mais que faire des « parents » des animaux qui clament haut et fort aimer leurs précieux compagnons à fourrure mais ne promènent leurs chiens qu’une pauvre dizaine de minutes le matin et le soir juste pour faire leurs besoins, qui se laissent berner par les grandes marques qui empoisonnent leurs animaux et qui les amènent chez le vétérinaire n fois par année pour faire taire leur conscience. Ne le prenez pas mal, mais je n’arrive pas à comprendre. Pourtant de la nourriture saine existe et EN PLUS, ce n’est pas plus cher que ce que les grandes marques vendent en faisant une publicité agressive qui leur coûte des millions pour ensuite faire des bénéfices de milliards sur le dos de tous ceux qui préfèrent fermer les yeux devant les articles pourtant si bien documentés et surtout devant l’état de santé de leurs amis fidèles.

Depuis plus d’une année, j’ai trouvé une nourriture exceptionnelle que je propose à tous mes amis, collègues et connaissances. En plus, si vous habitez en Suisse, les colis arrivent devant votre porte, le jour de votre choix. Ou encore, ceux qui habitent en France font livrer leur colis à leur lieu de travail en Suisse.

Pas encore convaincus ? Venez faire une dégustation à vos amis à fourrure.

A bientôt !
