Speak truthfully

”Dare to speak up for the things important to you.”   Staying true to one’s inner voice in a world filled with chaos might not always be the easiest thing to do. Surrounded by an immense amount of impressions and pressure we’re trying to find our way, seeking truth in an untruthful world. It’s time to take the blindfolds off – it’s time to speak the truth.  One of my intentions this March (and for the whole year) is to live truthfully. But what does it actually mean, to live truthfully? It’s about speaking up for the things important to you, the things that make your heart pound a little faster. It’s about daring to be yourself, staying curious and alive. It’s about letting kindness, wisdom and compassion guide you on your way. Knowing that it’s never too late to expand your horizon, never too late to grow and develop into the human you’re meant to be. People change, you change. Stay open. Be alert. It’s about trusting yourself, knowing that you have the power within. …

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 …

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 …

October intentions

”Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu Every once in a while it’s good to take a seat in the passenger seat, and take time to reflect; catch up on your thoughts, behaviours, intentions and goals. Writing down clear intentions in the beginning of each month is a great way to tap into yourself, your wants and desires. After declaring your monthly intentions you’re ready to take inspired action. If you commit to your intentions by taking aligned action, you’ll likely end up where you want to go (or somewhere even better).  ”Vivid as the ocean, infinite as the sky, colourful as the leaves go by. Take a glimpse at nature, a glimpse at the stars; remember, your true power is always found within, and beneath, your scars.”   1. Patience (is also a form of action) ”Just let it naturally evolve” Or like Buddha once said; ”Be where you are; otherwise you will miss your life.” Show gratitude for what you have, for where you are at the exact moment. …

Self-respect

”Oh baby, don’t you know. You’re a goddess. Don’t let them treat you like a doormat.”   Darling friend, feed yourself daily. Fill your plate with plenty of love, kindness and respect. Don’t depend on others to do so. Don’t ever lose your dignity and self-respect trying to make people love and appreciate you, when they just aren’t capable.   ”The more you love yourself, the less nonsense you’ll tolerate.”   It’s easy to lose sight of oneself every once in a while. You lose yourself when you listen too closely to what everybody else has to say. You might even lose yourself in your work, in your relationship or maybe you went to school for something practical rather than following your passion. Or maybe you just wanted to ”fit in”. Whatever the reason, now is the time to bring out the human you once tucked away. Finding yourself is about removing all the layers of ”what’s expected” and what’s acceptable”. It’s about stepping fully and completely into your true Self, living your purpose and …
