    How to get where you want to be?

      When I was a teenager, I used to sit in the garden in front of our house, during hot summer evenings, and I would look at the planes drawing white lines across the sky. Even now, when I´m writing these words, I can clearly remember that I wanted to sit on one of those planes and I wanted to fly somewhere far, far away. And where did I want to go? I definitely had some ideas in my mind but, basically, I thought that anywhere else would be better than where I was at that moment. I believed that all of my problems would disappear once I was gone and that my happiness was waiting for me someplace warm…

    The most important promise? The one you make to yourself! On how keeping a promise to yourself will change your life.

      Are you tired of life getting in your way? I can totally relate to that. You want to accomplish a dream or follow through on your goals, but then something happens and you´re right where you started. It seems like we are building sand castles and when a storm comes it simply blows everything down. Now, the question is: What is the foundation of our efforts? My life changed radically when I started to become aware of the fact that I so often failed to keep the promises I gave myself. Let´s look how our life can change when we start keeping promises we give ourselves: You´ll stop lying…

    You´re not responsible for other people´s happiness: The art of minding your own business

    One thing that happens to me often, is that I see someone living a life that I think I would be unhappy to live and I feel immediately sorry for them. I meet a grumpy server or an annoyed post office worker and I think that they have to be suffering because life hasn´t been fair to them. Other times, I assume people are unhappy because they do something I won´t be able to enjoy doing and I project my resistance onto them. When we pity someone, feel sorry for them or worry about them there is always one person suffering and it´s not necessarily them. People might be happy living a life you´d never live…

    Stop chasing after what you want

    Today´s post is probably going to contradict everything you have heard and believed so far about getting what you want. In this post, I would like to provide you and me, even if for a little while, with a space to rest from all the things we are striving so hard to achieve. Aren´t you tired of the race and the games we are playing with life and ourselves? I can honestly say that I am. Sometimes I persuade myself that I want something really bad and that I won´t be happy until I get it. I think I don´t have to give you all the details about how it…

    How to stop the comparison game

    How many times a day do you compare yourself to somebody else? We meet an old friend or see photos of people we follow on social media and we immediately go through a comparison list in our head: Her hair looks shinier but my style is definitely better… her kids go to a more renowned school, but my kids are certainly better-behaved… ooh, she lives in such a beautiful house, I wish I lived there…and everything looks so organized and clean and she is running her own business at the same time, I wonder how she makes time for all of that… maybe I should be trying harder, I am…
