Gut Instinct

I’m a thinker – with a slight tendency to over-think. So, I’m using the brain given to me very frequently and gladly: It provides me with great ideas, new concepts, tactics and projects – basically with a lot of useful and exciting input. But as probably most of you know from experience, sometimes when this … Continue reading Gut Instinct

Quote Series: What Other People Think

We grow up trying to fulfil a lot of expectations of how we should think and behave. And to some extent, this can be very helpful. But then there is this point in our lives, where we should start thinking for ourselves and simply do what we think is best for us. But the thing … Continue reading Quote Series: What Other People Think

Quote Series: Be The Juiciest Peach In The World

I’ve stumbled upon this quote recently and I wanted to share it with you so badly, because sometimes we just need to hear the truth: “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there is still going to be somebody who hates peaches.“ (by Dita Von Teese) We’re wasting so much precious … Continue reading Quote Series: Be The Juiciest Peach In The World

How Social Media Invades Our Universe

We are glued to our screens. 24/7. All of us. I know hardly anybody (the elderly excluded) who isn’t. Do you think that’s healthy? How can it even be? Over the past few days, I’ve come across quite a few blogposts, articles and quotes about people reviewing their relationship with social media and reality. It’s … Continue reading How Social Media Invades Our Universe

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

From Self-Acceptance to Self-Love

There are so many self-love guides out there that I decided this post will NOT be yet another one. Instead I would like to highlight the transformation from self-acceptance to self-love. Because in my opinion, self-love isn’t a state but a process. And you can’t ask somebody with insecurities to “just love yourself” and "be … Continue reading From Self-Acceptance to Self-Love

Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

Meditation is not the same as being mindful. Did you know that? I’ve only just realised this lately. But both words have been hyped so much over the past few months, that people have started using them as synonyms – even though the difference is essential! So, what is it? And how can it bring … Continue reading Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

Quote Series: Guilty of Guilt

“Guilt doesn’t serve anybody“ (Jennifer Rudolph Walsh on #girlbossradio) You know that feeling of being taken aback when you hear somebody say something so simple yet super-smart? This happened to me this morning on my commute into the city while listening to the #girlbossradio podcast with Jennifer Rudolph Walsh. The few words she dedicated to … Continue reading Quote Series: Guilty of Guilt

Perfection

Let’s put one thing straight first: Perfection does not exist. So, stop chasing it! We’re wasting so much time and energy on trying to be perfect – in terms of our appearance, our actions, who we talk to, what we like on social media, who we befriend, our priorities in life really. And why all … Continue reading Perfection

Quote Series: People Around You

“You can’t change the people around you, but you can change the people around you” (TheMinimalists) I’m totally in love with this quote – it doesn’t make any sense at first, but when reading it for the second time it gets such a deep meaning! And it’s true, isn’t it? So simple, yet so true. … Continue reading Quote Series: People Around You
