13 Provocative Satirical Illustrations. These Really Made Me Think.

Pawel Kuczynski graduated from the Fine Arts Academy in Poznan with a specialization in graphics. Since 2004 he has devoted his work mostly to satirical illustrations and has won numerous awards. His topics range from politics to pop culture to life in general. The pictures may be simplistic in style but they are deep and powerful in tone. It is incredible how something so simple can speak so many words and convey so many emotions.

Animals Make Great Mothers And These Pictures Prove it

The job of being a mom is an important one for both humans and animals alike.

Take a look at these adorable pictures of animal moms being as loving, supportive, and protective as they can to their offspring.

Just as humans adopt and care for orphans some animals take care of offspring that aren’t theirs (or even the same species). It’s just that mom instinct kicking in.

Why is This Dog in Church? When I Found Out I Almost Cried.

Tommy1

Tommy at Santa Maria Assunta Church (Nikonarte Fotografia/Daily Mail)

A dog sitting in church might seem strange, but not to the residents of the small town San Donaci in Italy. An elderly German Shepard by the name of Tommy goes to Mass at a local church almost every day. He sits patiently by the altar and the priest, Father Donato Panna, says he has never made a sound when he’s there.

So why does Tommy come to church religiously day after day? It’s because it is the last place he saw his owner alive.

Tommy2

Maria Margherita Lochi adopted the dog when she found him abandoned in the field near her home. She would bring him with her every day to church Father Donato would allow him to sit at her feet during the service.

Maria passed away recently and her funeral service (which the dog also attended) was held at the church. Ever since then Tommy has been coming to church. He sits in quiet mourning in his same spot before the altar, waiting for his master to arrive. He is there at every Mass.

It is heartbreaking to see Tommy’s show of silent loyalty and love. Dogs are incredibly devoted animals who share deep and unbreakable bonds with their loving owners. Have you loved on your pet today?

Doing Unto Others

This short humorous film is a good reminder to do unto others as you would have them do to you. Our own personal failings (greed, envy, desire, etc) often hurt us just as much as the pain they inflict on others. If no one wins what’s the point? We should be happy to make others happy. Don’t give in to your selfish thoughts!

Finding Opportunity In Difficulty

Finding Opportunity In Difficulty

Some people may look at this picture and see it as a miserable climb through snow and unforgiving cold. Others will look at it and see something to overcome. The difficulty of the snowy mountain becomes an opportunity for personal achievement and boasting rights.

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” – Thomas A. Edison

There are many opportunities in your life that you may miss out on because they seemed like too much work. But even the most troublesome tasks or issues are an opportunity for something better. All you have to do try. Don’t shy away. Rather seize the opportunities as they come, no matter how challenging or demanding they seem!

How to Be Whatever You Want to Be

How to Be Whatever You Want to Be

“You may be whatever you resolve to be. Determine to be something in the world and you will be something. ‘I cannot,’ never accomplished anything; ‘I will try,’ has wrought wonders.” – J. Hawes

A new year is often a time for new resolutions. But what about the ones you didn’t complete from last year? A new year, a new day, a new situation – it doesn’t matter. There isn’t certain time for achieving your dreams, that time should be now! Take your resolutions and meet them no matter what. Become who you want to be right now. Don’t worry about failure because a “can do” attitude will turn your stumbling blocks into stairs to success.

Want More Than Fear

Want More Than Fear

It takes a fair amount of courage to do what the guy in this picture is doing. Even with ropes and a harness there is always the chance that an accident will happen, and at his height that would be deadly. But the only way he is going to reach the top of that mountain is with courage.

“Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.” – Bill Cosby

Courage is almost always a prerequisite for success. The greater the goal the greater the fear of failure. But the only way to achievement comes from letting go of that fear. Let your passion drive you to greater heights in your work and your personal life!

The Bond of Friendship Between AJ and AJ

This is a cool video about the power of friendship. AJ Starr developed Cerebral Palsy and as he grew up he began to think his life wasn’t going to amount to much. But then Alabama star quarterback AJ McCarron befriends AJ and helps him get a job as equipment assistant for the team. Now AJ Starr is living his dream of working with the Crimson Tide and has developed friendships with the other teammates as well.

It is cool because AJ Starr was able to overcome his disability and pursue his passion. It is also cool because the friendship developed between him and AJ McCarron was the driving force that allowed him to follow his dreams. This video is a great example on the impact a friendship can have!

Breaking the Chains That Bind

Breaking the Chains That Bind

Chains are a heavy and unforgiving weight. What problems and situations in your life do you feel are binding you tight like chains? Are you staying connected to a job or relationship that you need to break free of? Are the burdens of a medical issue or lost loved one leaving you immobile? I urge you to break free of the people and circumstances in your life that are having a negative impact on you. Release the weight and live for something better!
