About Lydia


People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

I feel blue, orange and a bit yellow this morning. Olioboard is an easy and intuitive application for creating digital mood boards. It is also a community of interior designers and creative thinkers coming together to share inspiration and offer feedback.

This is mine

I’m having lunch for a few minutes, when I’m back at my computer, there are two fishes at my keyboard.

“We lost” the blue fish said. “We have to go home now, or we will die. My friend, the green fish, already find a way and the fastest way is through here.. I hope you’re ok”

“OK” I said (still shocked)

Their friends follow them.

“Thanks, Lydia” said the green fish.

I think that there is something wrong with my lunch!!!
