In my last post I dared you to write down your goals, because pinning them on paper makes them clear and visible, real and tangible. Writing down goals is crucial because it helps you turning dreams into plans, ideas into reality. It’s like carving out a path, like deciding on a route before leaving home. All you then have to do is start walking along this … Continue reading How to write down your goals smartly
This year I committed to taking steps towards turning my dreams into reality, to achieving my goals. I wanted to be more clear about them, more actively working towards them. So I planned to write them down and draft an action plan. What do I actually need to be doing to achieve these goals? And then something weird happened: I would sit down, pen in … Continue reading I dare you to write down your goals
We rush through our days. First I need to do this and then that. Then when I’m done, at the end of the day or the end of the week, when I’m on vacation, when it’s finally summer or next year, then, then I’ll be happy, then I’ll be fulfilled. We’re always living for the next one, the better one. The next weekend, the next … Continue reading What about now?
Dear Broken Soul, don’t worry my dear. People have been rude and egoistic. Like sharp blades they have cut you, leaving deep scars. I need you to know: people hurt you, not because you were wrong or because it was your fault. You did what you could do, trying to save them, trying to keep ties, trying to save yourself. They were fighting their own battles, … Continue reading Dear Broken Soul
Love is holding hands when it’s cold. Love is getting up earlier and taking a detour just to see me before work. Love is putting chilli in the food on your own plate rather than using it while cooking, because you know I wouldn’t be able to eat it. Love is sharing the last piece of chocolate. Love is letting yourself fall when I’m standing … Continue reading Your love letter
In the good old days, everyone says, things were better. It was better back then, back when, on winter mornings we’d open the blinds, fingers crossed in mind, excited upon seeing the first snow, our faces would glow. Grabbing snow suits, and snow boots, outside we’d run. We’d play and jump, just being happy and dumb, throwing ourselves into the snow. We’d smile at the … Continue reading First day of snow
For a couple of weeks now I’ve been writing a gratitude journal. That means every night I write down at least three things relating to the past day, that I’m grateful for. This easy practice has helped me in multiple ways, which is why I have put together a list of reasons for why you should start a gratitude journal too. 1. You will start focusing … Continue reading Why you should write a gratitude journal
„I’ve got nothing to wear!“, she was standing in front of her closet, piles of clothes scattered on the floor and covering every surface in her room. Her friend was sitting in midst of this chaos in a calm, almost meditative posture on her bed. „What do you think about this one?“, she pulled out a turquoise coloured strapless dress, holding it in front of … Continue reading The dress
So the other day at work a new colleague joined our team. Our team is a very heterogenous group with all types of people, backgrounds and ages. We’re not all friends in our private lives but have very good work friendships. Everyone did their best to include the new one in our group. However, soon we started noticing that he often asks for help, which … Continue reading Whatever happened to being polite?
As adults we often walk around, without actually noticing anything around us. Head bowed down, to-do-list in mind, we’re isolated in our tiny bubbles. We’re not really there, where we are, our thoughts two steps ahead, always optimising ourselves, optimising our careers, optimising our lives. Every day from waking up to going to bed is a marathon, is a string of tasks. We count down … Continue reading Who says we need to lose our childlike wonder?
