5 Positive habits that will improve your life

”Now is the perfect time to start imagining all that you can do.”   It’s never too late to implement fresh, new habits into your day-to-day routine. As I mentioned in a former blog post (Five life perspectives to live by) – if you’re looking for a mini life-makeover, then, first things first, you need to start from within. In other words, start with your mental state, since most often it’s the root to all problems. If you don’t change what’s going on inside your mind – with your thoughts, who you are and the way you think about certain things – then it’s going to be very hard to find a new sense of happiness, contentment and inspiration. Below you’ll find 5 positive habits to implement in 2019: Patience ”Allow things to unfold naturally.” I believe the main difference between successful and unsuccessful people is not the way they vary in their competencies, but the way they vary in their ambition, and desires to reach their potential. Persistence and patience is key, since good things usually …

Dear January…

… wherever you are, be there.” ”It’s your task to listen. To be still,yet alert.Trust.”   January is for flourishing beings awakening their souls. While nature’s half asleep, bloom, darling, bloom. Evolve, one precious step at a time. Believe in yourself, never neglect your true worth. Your true light. Strive for progression, growth and compassion. There’s always something to be grateful for. Life. Dear human, be grateful for life. Kiss your worries away. Dance with every loving breath.  January is for taking that delicate and crucial first step. The opportunity to begin anew arises. Sunrise after sunrise. Souls awakening from the darkest of night. From the deep, deep slumber we all return to light. Guided by the strength within. Shining bright. Trust that everything you seek you already are. Brave being, believe in your dreams. Appreciate your journey for it molds you into the human you are. Into the human you are becoming. This January is all about understanding one’s uniqueness. Knowing that it’s ok to be scared, to not have all the answers. Be ambitious anyway. Be curious, be you. It’s about listening and having faith. …

Dear December…

… you set my soul on fire (and yet, you haven’t even arrived) ”With the moon and with the stars, how can we say we don’t have enough?”   The silent hour of night, and my heart suddenly arise. Caressing my awaken sight, while awaiting you, with blissful eyes. Watching snowflakes quietly at rest, while the moon shining its light upon us. 50 shades of snow, wherever we choose to go. Darling December, the way you transform the darkness. Even at 4 am. When the world is still. The sky is black. The mind intense. Emotions wide awake, heart half asleep, in a blissful lullaby sleep. I hope your dreams are sweet.  December is for love and laughter. Peace and joy. The bright pink sky with heart-shaped clouds, peacefully passing by. It’s for warm-hearted gestures. Compassion and loving-kindness. Snowflakes dancing outside our window, making every moment irresistible. Gifts wrapped up in affection, kindness and hope. It’s December, you can wish for anything. What will you wish for? This December is all about giving more of yourself. Give your …

Friday Feeling – Will Power

”I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein What is your biggest talent? Maybe you’re good with words? Good at inventing and building things? Or maybe you’re a skilled entrepreneur, or a great pastry chef? Whatever your talent might be, talent alone will never be enough. Hard work, persistence and will power will decide exactly how much of your talent that will come forth. Nature alone isn’t enough; you’ll have to nurture your gift. Talent can, however, be seen as a vital starting point, but without the dedication and will power to develop and master your skills talent alone will never be enough. While you can be extremely gifted in a particular skill, the likelihood that you succeed decreases greatly as soon as you stop nurturing and developing your talent. Someone else with less talent working day and night cultivating their skills will most likely succeed with far greater possibility. ”Self-regulation is the process of identifying a goal or a set of goals and, in pursuing these goals using both internal (e.g. …

50 facts about me

”Out of stillness grows mastery. There’s no place like within.”   I like spending time by myself (I’m an INFJ personality type). I feel more at ease in one-on-one settings than in large groups. I love dark chocolate. I’ve done yoga almost every day for about a year (some days 10 minutes other days 40 minutes). I’m very sensitive to other peoples’ energies. I’m a very sensitive person ( although I might look or act cold on the outside). I believe all people are born with a kind heart (however, what we let society, our ego or other people do to us is up to us..) Having knowledge is powerful, nevertheless, without wisdom it’s all wasted.  I want to have two dogs; preferably a husky and a golden retriver. My new found hobby painting is the best thing that happened to me this past year. Rhytmic gymnastics is my all time favorite sport; it was my biggest passion when I was between 10-18 years old. I feel a enormous drive to help people in some …

Dear November…

… surrendering to your darkness, knowing, your blissful bright light peacefully resting within. ”The silent hour of night, and my heart suddenly arise, caressing my awaken sight, while awaiting life, with blissful eyes.”   Your days are short, your nights are endless. Swimming in your darkness, facing our deepest fears. There’s no way escaping the twilight, but to invite it to dance. Pour your rain on us, cover our lives in darkness, blow your insecurities on us, but, you’ll never ever destroy us. After dusk comes dawn. There’s no June without you. This November is all about harnessing the talents within. Cultivating curiosity, courage, confidence and creativity. Life is filled with opportunities. Trust. It’s about accepting and releasing emotions, negative thoughts. Reaching out to humans through loving kindness and warmhearted action. Striving for growth and progression. Connection and compassion. Speaking with integrity. Being impeccable with the words. It’s about redirecting the attention. Good energy, good vibes, filling our lives. Knowing we have the freedom to express ourselves. To be who we are. Magnificent, dear human. Magnificent. …

What’s your reason for being?

”Wherever you are, be there.”   Who are you? I’m not asking for your name, or where you were born. I’m not asking about your profession, or your field of study. I’m not asking about what has happened to you in the past. And I’m not asking about your family, or who you’re dating. I’m asking about you.  Who are you? Finding oneself being lost in life, lost in translation, happens to all of us at some point in our life. If you’re feeling lost, then it’s exactly where you need to be right now. Be thankful to life, for always having your back. Be thankful for the path you’ve travelled; the way it has moulded you, and strengthened your sense of Self. Be thankful for where you are at this moment. With every breath; die with the past, surrender to the future, and awaken to the sound of your present heartbeat. The beauty of life lies in the simplest of things. You don’t have to feel obligated to write a list filled with material goals …

The gift of the present moment – inner happiness

”True awareness, being totally immersed in the present moment experience, is the most pure, peaceful, expansive and healing state there is.”   Random thoughts on a crisp, soft autumn day. May the magic of the golden hour awaken the spark within you.  Don’t try to change the past, it’s impossible. The only way to change the future is by making the most of the present. Being a control freak by nature I’ve decided to work on being more patient with myself, in order to find a sense of calmness within; personal features that I strongly believe are highly beneficial to the body, mind & soul.  But how is it even possible to stay patient and calm in a world that’s constantly changing? To stay satisfied with what is, when the mind is obsessed with living in the past or worrying about the future? It’s like it does anything just to escape the now. ”I don’t want to be here, I need to get to there.” ”When I find that perfect partner, that perfect job, earn …

Not worthy of comparison

”dear self, you’re exactly who you need to be right now.”   August 27, 2018 Day 240 of 365 Your life is beautiful. Unfiltered, raw and beautiful. Dear human, take time to appreciate every chance you get to breathe in the mysteries of life. The dark, deep mysteries of nature. Embrace the softness in the air, the fresh ocean breeze, the steep mountain tops. Darling, embrace yourself. Darling, even the Moon shines its brightest during darkness. The path you’ve been travelling, to get to where you are right now, is yours. Your life is not comparable to anyone else’s, just as your Self can’t be compared to any other human being’s Self. Instead, focus on honoring your uniqueness. Don’t let fear stop you from living life to its fullest. Don’t let fear stop you from being you. ”Comparison is the death of creativity. The death of your Self.” It’s rather common to obsess about other people’s lives, other people’s success stories, that you completely forget about your own possibilities to succeed. Within seconds you can …

The Law of Attraction

”I have the power to create my own reality.” What you send out into the universe – your thoughts, feelings, words – you attract into your life. Using positive thinking, abundant thinking, visualization and setting intentions are great things in order to start creating the life you want. It’s all about shifting your focus. Shifting your perspectives. Like turning a negative day into a great day. It all starts with you.  However, it’s not enough to simply write or speak about the things you want in life. You have to believe, in order to receive. If you don’t believe in yourself and all that you’re capable of, nothing much will grow out of it. What is more you’ll have to begin to take inspired action, daily. It’s not enough to simply sit on the coach, listening to inspirational podcasts or visualising dreams and goals coming through (I’m sure guilty of that!) ”Bring your thoughts to a higher level.” In order for the magic to start flowing into your life you’ve to take action. Action, my dear. …
