Create more, consume less.

In our today’s society, instead of being creative, we tend to consume a lot because there are lots of possibilities for consumption: TV, radio, internet,.. The last couple of months, I myself have been consuming way too much to be honest. Videos, articles, podcasts,.. Okay, to be fair – I guess I needed this during that time, to get inspiration and new ideas. To learn about other ways of living and what others do to grow and fulfill their dreams. Now it’s enough though. I realized that the main reason for consuming wasn’t anymore to learn or get inspired but just…

What we think we become.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” – Buddha I’d like to share with you some of my thoughts on the law of attraction and my experience with it. You’ve never heard of this law? Well, basically, this quote of Buddha above says it all but here is good definition that I’ve found: “The belief that positive thoughts are magnets for positive life experiences and negative thoughts are magnets for negative life experiences. Based on the law of attraction, if you have a specific desire and…

Face your fears to grow.

“Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.” – W. Clement Stone I personally experienced that this is so true. I have always been one of those persons being afraid of a lot of things: Failure, rejection, extreme sports, spiders,.. I guess it’s also because I’m one of those people that are always overthinking everything. I’m actually really proud of myself though. I feel that I got so much better at dealing with my fears. Let me share a little story with you: As you can see from my last blog post, I recently had been on a trip to…

Live in the moment, live for today.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu I’m one of those people that really struggle with living in the moment. I think too much about the past and worry too much about the future which often keeps me up at night though all I can do anyway is living today, now, in this moment. Although I really do still struggle with this, I already got better at being present in this exact moment, I try to practice this all the time. There are strategies that help me with it. First of all it helps me to realize that it’s…

We’re all human.

So this week I was feeling completely unmotivated. If you read this post, you may guess why. I was stressing myself quite a lot over this because I always had thoughts on my mind like “Oh but you should write a blog post, you should go running, you should wash your clothes, you should do this and that..”  when literally all I did was like coming home from work, eating, watching a movie, crying a little here and there and falling asleep. However, today I thought about this. I mean, seriously: Where is the sense in putting pressure on yourself to be productive when you’re already feeling…

Embrace Heartache.

Is there a remedy for waiting? For loves victorious return. Is there a remedy for hating? Every second that I’m without you. -Angus & Julia Stone When you fear to lose the most important person in your life or you already did, your life just feels so empty, so pointless. All you do is going through old memories in your head over and over again and cry over them which makes you feel even more miserable. It hurts so much that it even makes you feel physically sick. In my opinion, heartache is one of the worst pains you can…

Life will happen anyway.

“What are you going to do with your life? It’s a surprise!” I see quotes like this all over social media these days, especially from people that are about 16-19 years old. There are also lots of young people writing about how they worry about not knowing what to do with their life like if they should go to college, what profession they should get etc. Why am I writing this? Because I think it’s funny in a way.. When I was that age I was the same. I had absolutely no idea. After school I was unsure if I should…

Making Decisions

Making decisions has always been one of my biggest struggles. I think a lot of you can relate to this. It just came to my mind though that in fact we should feel lucky that we are able to make different decisions. Most people in the world are not, many of them don’t have a choice at all. You can always see things from two sides, it really is true. For other people the decisions I have to make at the moment and the problems I have to face sound like paradise, I’m sure. So, if you are able to…

Sacrificing your dreams for others?

So last night was really emotional for me. I had a discussion with my parents about.. well, basically about what’s the right way to live your life. I told them I want to get a job now after studying to – among other things – save up for travelling later in my life and where I plan on travelling. Of course, my parents didn’t agree with this. They say I’m not normal and I can’t just do this and that I have to think about my future. But.. isn’t this my future? Ah no.. I forgot. My future is to…

Staying positive can be hard sometimes.

I just got another refusal for a job I applied for so I start to get a little frustrated. I know I shouldn’t because this doesn’t make anything better and I should stay motivated. But this was a job I really wanted to do so it’s easier said than done. I even called them to get a feedback and to ask if there really is no change to get an invitation for an interview because I told myself not to give up that easily anymore. (Edit: Ok, they refused me because they need someone right now and not in a…
