    Create a to-enjoy-list instead of a to-do-list

    The first month of the year is nearly over and I would love to explore the topic of goal setting with you.I don’t know how it is for you but I love to take on a challenge and set myself goals and yes, I have to admit I did make new year’s resolutions.It makes me feel excited and motivated and I often go all in, in a head-over-heels-dive-in-style like I used to call it. That was my list I came up with on New Year’s Day: You’re probably guessing where this all went.This schedule didn’t survive the first week of the year. I should have known better and guess what,…

    A journey with the tides

    Every journey starts with the first rays of hope. It’s this nudge that let you go for undiscovered places, the excitement for unknown paths. It starts with you catching the light, letting the thoughts and emotions flow, getting things cleared that are holding you back. Every journey is stepping into the healing and refreshing energy of nature, it’s trusting and letting things unfold. It’s being in awe, experiencing comfort, the inner peace and freedom you’ll find within. Every journey starts with the decision from the heart, the courage to walk with your heart as your lighthouse. It’s remembering your ocean within, the waves of your soul, the treasures and abundance…

    What does freedom look like?

    Is freedom a place you can choose, a place where you feel home and you belong? Is it the choice to leave the known behind, letting go of the old? Is freedom timeless, or the time you choose to spend with what makes you feel alive and joyful? Is it choosing something that gives your life a touch of eternity? Is freedom earning and spending your resources and energy for something that is meaningful to you, that gives your life and others purpose? Is freedom being connected to a source that makes your life flow in abundance? Is freedom only a feeling that you have access to wherever you are,…

    A new way of defining success

    How do you define success for yourself? When do you feel successful? Is it even something you strive for? I think we can’t escape the constant drive for success, accomplishment and productivity. Our society and how we were raised in the capitalistic world rules this way. Is there a way out of this burden? When someone asks me how I define success for myself, I always say that it would feel like freedom, connection, abundance, joy, creativity, authenticity. But what if these terms are only a different description of the same striving and hustle culture: a striving to avoid, to get away from a feeling like sadness, loneliness, heaviness, separation,…

    Are we addicted to the future?

    Is the hustle culture, the striving and becoming more productive and successful preventing us from living our life in the here and now? Are these endless to-do-lists a sign how disconnected we became to ourselves, to what really matters in life? Is this clinging to an outcome, to a specific goal a kind of addiction, an attachment to a future we wish we can control? Are we addicted to creating a comfort zone that makes us feel safe and successful, that we are in charge, a place where we don’t have to feel insecurities, fear, loneliness and uncertainty? Do we give in to the false belief that we only have…

    Step into joy – The endless summer

    I want to tell you a story about summer, about a time when you felt so free because the holidays started, about a time when you woke up in the morning without worrying what might come your way, when you were excited about the day and the adventures you were going to experience. You know this summer feeling when no one bothers you with tasks to do, when you don’t feel anxious about the things you have to face, a time when you could put all these expectations weighing on you aside and only be yourself, experiencing new things, getting to play the whole day in the sun. These days…

    When I started to listen, I stepped into the healing journey of my life

    Disconnection I went into a burnout episode recently. Although I thought that I had all the tools to prevent this, I was sad and depressed and didn’t know what to do and why it has happened to me again. Why did I fall off the bandwagon and get into the mode of running through my life feeling disconnected from myself, feeling lost as if all the joy in my life has abandoned me? I was so disconnected from how I want to feel, from how I dream my life could be. I missed the feeling of aliveness, when you explore new things or go on little trips and adventures, the…

    Live a life without regrets

    When I sat in the chair not knowing if life has a tomorrow for me, I watched the waves and cried tears of regret. With every tear that was running down my face a dream, a missed opportunity, all the things I hadn’t done flowed down my cheeks. I felt responsible for things I wasn’t responsible for. I was only responsible for my own life. I wasn’t responsible for the happiness of my mother who had depression her whole life. I wasn’t responsible for the things that happened to me in my childhood, but I’m now responsible for my healing and living a life that is joyful and meaningful. I believe…

    Why do you want to follow your dreams?

    Why do you want to achieve your dreams? And if you can’t find an answer to this question at once, know that there is a reason, a deeper meaning why this dream comes up in your mind over and over again. If you can dream and visualize it, then this dream is for you. It is meant for you to pursue it. A fact I had to remind myself of multiple times: If you can dream it, you can do it. Sometimes you can’t put the ‘Why’ into proper words. It’s more a feeling, an intuition that is calling you to go for it.When you can’t find your ‘Why’ ask…

    I start to choose anew

    My body and mental health are showing me the signs: I’m in burnout mode I feel exhausted, tired, depressed. I can’t sleep in the night because I worry too much about my future. I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning, things and activities that normally bring me joy leave me sad, everything seems to be grey although the spring season paints a colourful picture. I feel disconnected and I fear what the next days might bring: I’m afraid of my job. I’m afraid that I get ill again. I’m afraid of losing my joy and the connection to my heart and soul. I’m afraid of losing…
