    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…

    Underwater World

    She longed for a new world, a world of peace and silence. She longed for light in the dark, for a world of connection. She longed for a world full of adventures, for exploring her curiosity, for a world full of play and flow. She longed for a world full of abundance, for colours that paint her world of magic. She longed for a world of wonder, for possibilities, for making her dreams come true. She longed for a world full of stars, for places that fill her heart with love and joy. She longed for a world of trust and surrender, of surrender to the heart. She longed for…

    The rising of the phoenix

    I felt so much pain in my right shoulder that I could barely lift my arm, I tried to find a way to get my arms moving, to keep going, although I didn’t know how.  With every wave that hit my shoulder I felt a huge sting. Every wave made it apparent that the current was so strong and that I didn’t make any progress. I had to find a way, a way to cut the pain out of my focus, a way to believe that it still can be done. And then a flash of memories came through my mind: Me as a little girl, sitting with my elder…

    Take care of your creativity like an athlete

    I’m sitting here on a Sunday afternoon, prepared my tea, switched off all the distractions and want to write, but nothing comes up, no inspiration, I only feel tired and exhausted. I didn’t take care of my health as I used to the last few weeks and this has not only a negative effect on my creativity but also on my swim performance. So why not getting back on track with creating a self-care habit that fits for both: Writing and Swimming A self-care habit that increases your health, wellbeing, motivation, energy, creativity and strength: Energy: What gives my body and mind energy to stay motivated and perform well? It’s…

He looked out of the window but he didn’t really see anything, only skyscrapers. His thoughts rushed through his head, just like the never-ending traffic in the city. He had had a meeting with his boss and it ended with an argument: the sales has to go…

    Stepping Stones

    Stepping stones Stepping stones are guiding you to walk with a courageous heart. A heart that opens the door to a new world, that can climb over every obstacle in the way. Stepping stones are guiding you over every current, so that you can reach the other shore. A shore that seems so far away. Stepping stones are guiding you into the waves of adventures, waves of the aliveness of the heart. A heart that wants you to live your bold freedom. Stepping stones are guiding you into clarity. A clarity that occurs when the storms and mud have settled. Walk confidently, step by step, watch and listen to the…
