Book recommendation: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

There is one question I get posed more often these days: How can I or person xyz learn to better reflect?

What seems like a trivial question is actually rather difficult. Sure, we are familiar with our own thoughts and we all try to make sense of that mess that can inherit our heads. But to reflect in a way to actually derive insight, understanding and an idea how to adjust and change is not that common.

What Price are You Willing to Pay?

Many of us have wishes, goals and ideas about what we still want to achieve in our lives or what our life should look like in the best case. We imagine in our thoughts how nice it would be to achieve this and, if we are good, we even become active to go in the right direction. We make plans and, if we are smart, we get support for difficult tasks or setbacks.

The Long Road to Your Self

At some point I read that we humans are the means of the universe to think about itself. Questions like, “Who am I?” or “What is the meaning of life” are phrases we use to explain ourselves and the world around us. Millions of years of evolution have taught us that everything that makes us up (body and mind) has a specific purpose. I firmly believe that one of our main tasks in life is to understand ourselves and our way and thereby help all people and living beings.

What’s YOUR Destination?

When was the last time you sat down and thought about your life? Have you taken the time to discuss where you want to go and what else you want to experience in your life? Now you might say, “I do that all the time” or “I have a plan for my life”. I still have one more question. How much of YOU is in it?

A New Chapter

I have wanted to write this post for a very long time… In October 2017, I was in a desperate state. It was a few days before my sister’s wedding and I felt incredibly lonely because I couldn’t stop thinking about my ex. I was feeling unhappy with my job and I was living in…

Anger Management

Today’s article is about a topic that I started to think more about lately, namely anger and being angry.  One of my values is harmony. I always try to create an atmosphere in which I and other people feel comfortable. And it might sound nice, but there is also a downside to it. Yesterday, I…

Plan your Happy New Year 2019

First of all, I wish all of you and your families and friends a wonderful new year, full of love, life, adventure, and growths.  After giving myself a long vacation (also from the blog, but I will explain this a little bit later), it feels good to start writing again. I could feel that after…

Random Act of Kindness – Worldbuilders

What two entries on one day? Yes, but it is a short one. If you can read this blog, I think the likelihood is high that you live a decent life. There is that old wisdom that when you feel sad, do something good for someone else to feel better. For the next three days,…

Start of a new project

I started this blog as a project. And although this project is not over, I will start another one. One goal of this blog was to help me process my thoughts and feelings, and in turn, help me to reach the state of mind I already had, and I’d like to have more frequently again….

5 past 12

Our world is changing. In some respects, for the better and in some for the worse. Climate is one of the latter. I don’t know what your thoughts on climate change are. If you are skeptical, the only thing I want to ask you is to do your own research and not trust your normal…

How can I make the world a better place?

Huh, what a question? Where to start you might think. And I agree with you. This article won’t give the ultimate answer. It is an opinion piece and I want you to reflect and be critical as always. At first, the title of this article was “How can we make the world a better place?”….
