Decluttering Your Space and Mind

I love decluttering. By decluttering I mean tidying up, sorting out my things, getting rid of some unnecessary stuff and ultimately clean what’s left and gets some fresh air in. It’s just so relieving and satisfying! Today, there are countless studies and opinions stating that the mess you surround yourself with is effectively a reflection … Continue reading Decluttering Your Space and Mind

Quote Series: If Nothing Changes

“Nothing changes, if nothing changes“  (by somebody smart) The meaning of this sentence seems obvious – but do you really understand it? I’ve only just come across this one today and honestly, I first thought that was an unnecessary and pseudo-intellectual space filler in my Instagram feed. But for some reason it got stuck in … Continue reading Quote Series: If Nothing Changes

Competition vs. Mutual Support

Working life or studying is tough (both in its own way, depending on the circumstances).

Failure

We are all far too afraid to fail. We are very hesitant to brave the world and give exciting but challenging ideas a shot – that is because we’re afraid what might happen if we failed. But saying that out loud (figuratively speaking), it becomes obvious how restricting this way of thinking is: If we … Continue reading Failure

R.I.P. Blender

You were loyal. You were doing an amazing job at dealing with all sorts of stuff I gave you. You even made the special ingredients blend in perfectly well. You were a good team player – in shining armour. You were giving so much. You were always supportive. You got rather old as well – … Continue reading R.I.P. Blender
