Restlessness is per definition “the inability to rest or relax as a result of anxiety or boredom”. How often do you get this sensation? You do not have to be the anxious type to feel it. Actually, you can be overly excited about something until you start having this itchy feeling you cannot get rid of. Or it may happen that you get bored, and this itchiness grows more intense every day. Applying it to your current reality, you start the new year motivated and enthusiastic abo
Having clarity. Seeing clearly. Become clear. Sounds almost like those claims preached by a clairvoyant! Though this is not what we are referring to. You do not have to be a fortune teller nor consult one to create a vision for your future. It does not involve either a psychedelic experience in the pursuit for enlightenment. How come getting clarity in your life is relevant after all? What are you trying to get clarity about? Did it ever happen to you to feel so unclear and i
Here we are. At the end of another year. Perhaps you are busy closing last-minute business deals or running around doing errands and buying presents, typical during this holiday season. Or you may be feeling lazy and exhausted, dragging yourself around waiting for the next challenge or project to come. To be honest, I am currently fitting into that second category. Already on vacation back home, 33-weeks pregnant and about to go on maternity leave, I have been struggling in t
The biggest commitment you must keep is your commitment to yourself. Neale Donald Walsch Life is full of commitments. You commit all the time to something or someone, even when you feel miserable about it. You commit to a job you do not like, to a love relationship that makes you unhappy, to a routine that drains your energy, to a diet that frustrates you. When you finally want to commit to something that brings you joy and purpose, you have run out of strength and enthusiasm
Focus on your path. Stay focused on your goals. You probably heard it more than once and wondered what to do with it, especially if you have no clue where your path leads or what your goals are. I get it. It can be quite daunting. On the other hand, it is an opportunity to question your focus-oriented mindset. When we are babies or toddlers, our attention span is quite limited. It is natural that you do not have any memory of it, but if you have kids you surely remember when
You are probably familiar with the hamster wheel metaphor I resort to now and again. In a few words, most of the people you know – you included! – are like a little hamster spinning on that wheel non-stop. Looking and feeling busy, constantly in motion. But never leaving the same place. Always returning to the same starting point. I find this metaphor quite insightful. Apart from hamsters being indeed peculiar creatures, they also seem to be hard-working. Observing them runni
In the beginning of the year, I wrote to you about the power of a yearly theme. How do we start anew, bursting with energy and motivation along with a list of resolutions or goals that we set ourselves to accomplish throughout that year. Those first couple of weeks or months where you feel fully engaged and committed, your mind running a million miles an hour, you feeling determined and invincible. A yearly theme(s) intends to keep you connected to your overall plan or dream.
