Pre Beauty Sleep

  ‘Logic will take you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.’ – Albert Einstein Evening routine 1. Write   Sometimes I like to practise writing without having any structure, just letting the mind say what it has to say. I like the thought of not thinking too much about anything. But usually, in the evenings, my mind wish to be a complete mess of thoughts, and I allow it. Letting the mind completely unwind and relax is very important. You need that. Your brain needs that. I try to focus on not focusing too much. Something like that. Doesn’t always turn out the way I want it. I have become to realise that I sleep much better, more beautifully, if I write down my mind’s stories before bedtime. Like when you were a child and your parents read good-night-stories (hoping that you would fall a sleep before the news). However, now we are old enough to create our own stories. Although, we were actually around 4 when we started creating all kind of …

Dear Future Job

Dear future job,   I can choose to continue to scroll through job ads without finding any position that fits my profile. OR I can choose to throw myself out there, head first, making myself visible, so that the one and only, spot-on job (you) finally can find me. Working together, successfully ever after. If you would examine my brain you would most probably think I am a chaotic mess. However, that is far from the truth; I am organized, altruistic, driven and creative (thanks to my disorganized brain). Although my mind is constantly chatting – you know, I am one of those who think before they speak – I always seem to somehow separate and remove all the clutter from the important information, the things that make sense, make us proceed. I love writing. Writing is my home. Whenever I feel sad, in love, anxious, eager to inspire or excited I return home. Please, prepare yourself – being with me involves writing. Another thing that I am deeply passionate about is people. We are …

soul on a piece of paper

‘the moon shines its brightest merely so we can come alive.’   ​ it’s the silence that speaks to me dangerously impatient it has something to tell oh how i wish you knew   nature in its purest form only exists she observes our every move shocked by our consciousness and how it simply does not notice all of the magic it has been given   if i would write my future i would put your soul in every word dangerously charming ambitious vulnerable lost in all intelligence beautiful while sleeping every precious breath caressing my heart not purely words your soul my life   we fall, we get up we fall, we get up we fall, we get up we accomplish, we shine and passivity hunts us down never getting up again   the intensity of her dark gaze, and he knows her soul was born to simply amaze, repairing broken hearts   when I think of you the moon shines brighter like an answer to all of my million questions knowing that you …

The mentality of successful people

‘The key to success is to start before you are ready.’   One thing I have become slightly obsessed with the past year is reading about, and listening to inspirational people. In my opinion, inspiring people are those who are living their passion, following their dreams and pursuing their goals in life. Lately I have been thinking a lot about what differs a person who actually takes action to chase his/her dreams to the one who just talks about his/her dreams. It is very easy to talk about what we want in life, write about it, and dream about it. We might even visualize how we achieve our dreams and our goals. But it all stops there. What traits do these successful humans have that the persons who is stuck in their dreams, and keep on being stuck in their dreams, do not have? They take action. These people know that in order to achieve and become successful they have to work hard. Nothing comes easy. It is not enough that you talk about how …

The Brave Human

‘You do not have to have all the answers. Sometimes you just pause. Take time-out, and let it be. Eventually, when you are ready, magic starts to happen.’   Imagine you came up with the best idea. You feel immensely excited and proud, and you cannot wait to get started to bring it to life. But then all of a sudden these thoughts take over; ‘What the hell are you thinking? You cannot do that. You are not smart or creative enough. There is already someone doing precisely that, and they are better than you, much better. You are not good enough. Who do you think you are?’ ENOUGH! Enough already. These negative thought patterns do not serve you in any way. They do not bring you forward; in fact, they take you a thousand steps backwards. Let them come, but most importantly – let them go. Do not dwell upon them, and do not engage in them. You do not want them taking over your mindset. Do not let them settle down and get …

Random Monday Thoughts

‘The ordinary things? The ordinary moments? – They aren’t ordinary.’   I hope your Monday is as sunny as mine. Beautiful autumn day. Here are some random thoughts, this time about ambition, volunteering and morning routines. Some inspiring words about ambition I read the other day: ”In this life never settle for average. Be elite. There will be highs and lows but this is what you signed up for by aligning yourself with your ambition. Within the journey are your lessons, your personal development, your suffering, your joy, and your brilliant success. Your ambition will teach you that your struggles, your hustle, and your battles are blessings. Ultimate success in life comes not from something external, but from something deeply internal. It comes from a sense of esteem you hold about yourself, which is not something you can ever get from someone else. You must use what drives your ambition to continue to grow and push yourself, to do more and give more than is comfortable or you even thought possible. The wealthiest person on …

WE ARE HUMANS

‘Let us create a world where butterflies are free to fly.’   We are humans. We can do anything. Let us create a world filled with heart. A world filled with warmth and kindness. We can do anything? Why don’t we? Let us create trust and forgiveness. Hope and dreams. We are intelligent; we can’t let technology outsmart us. We are bright, we have emotions, and we have a soul. Each and every one of us has something to offer to this world. We have to let ourselves thrive. We have to let others shine. Let us create a world where there is no jealousy, no bitterness over other people’s accomplishments. Let us celebrate every win, every victory. When a person succeeds, it means that also you have the possibility. There is plenty of abundance in the world. Let us create a healthy, flourishing environment. Awareness. We have to understand that living in denial only puts more pressure on our planet. We have to take action. We have to create opportunities. We. Have. To. Become. …

#positivethinking

‘Dear November, welcome. Despite your darkness there’s always a palm tree somewhere.’ – L.M.V November has never been my favourite month. However, today when I woke up the sun was shining and the sky was blue. There’s always a reason to smile. I went for a long morning walk with a coffee in my hand, and decided that this November is going to be my most productive November month ever! #positivethinking There are a lot of things that I would like to accomplish, and I need to figure out what I need to do in order to achieve those things. In the beginning, even if your goals seem out of reach you’ll have to trust yourself, trust that you have what it takes to get to where you want to be. In the end it’s only you who decide who you are, and what’s possible for you. Small steps, and every little victory, will take you further along the road. If you have a clear vision of your end goal, a vision where you see …

Exercise Your Mind – Free Write

‘Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.’   Whenever I need to find some new inspiration, and allow new thoughts to enter I free write. It can be about absolutely anything. It can start from a word that I like, from a song, from a conversation I overheard at the coffee shop or from nature. It can grow from anything. Writing is exercise for the mind. As important it is to exercise our bodies it is equally important to exercise our minds. You don’t have to write in order to challenge your mind; you can learn a new language, study a new subject or meditate – simply do something that your mind isn’t used to. Allow your mind to stay open for any ideas to enter, whatever ideas they might be – let them come. Don’t analyze them too much; they’re just thoughts. In the end they will simply be words written on a piece of paper. A piece of paper that eventually will end up in the garbage. Step …

Grateful

  ‘The secret to having it all is knowing you already do.’   I’m happy when I write, when I help someone, when I eat fresh fruit, when I see a happy dog, when I’m in the kitchen, when I spend time with people I love, when I wake up after a good night sleep, when I’m in nature, when I stretch, when I dance like nobody is watching. I’m glad to have friends, family, a warm bed, clean water, comfy shoes, a healthy body and food in my fridge. I love being able to travel, to learn something new every day, to meet people from different cultures and to have a good education. I’m inspired by people who dare to follow their dreams, I’m inspired by kindness, love and courage. Life is full of ordinary things. But despite their simplicity they mean everything. Because without the ordinary, life would be empty. There are plenty of reasons to smile every single day. If you have clean water, food, a home and family, then you have …
