Letter to thyself. Letter to myself.

Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you’ve never been hurt. And live like it’s heaven on Earth.- Mark Twain

Be true. Be you.
Love. Be loved.

Jump. Dance.
Play like a child.
Nobody is watching.
Nobody is judging.

Take breaks. Take breaths.
Stop for a minute.
Hold on.
And smile.

Dare to listen.
Listen a lot.
What can you hear?
Who is whispering to your ear?

Bus of Life

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.- Abraham Lincoln

Imagine your life is a bus.
A bus that follows a certain route.
Driving through the world, from stop to stop.
Crossing streets, cities, canyons and villages.
Passing people, moments, spectacles and oceans.
Across mountains, bridges and colorful meadows.

Tell me, who is driving your bus?
Who is sitting in the driver’s seat?
Who chooses where to stop next?
Who decides the times, passengers, and route?

It’s Monday! Tips for a merry start to your week.

You get out of the wrong side of the bed, on your way to the bathroom, you stumble across the sleeping dog (don’t they hear alarmclocks?), jump into a cold shower because they’ve cut the warm water (oh yeah, there was something in the mail box). And – of course – this happens on a MONDAY morning.

But why do Mondays put us in a bad mood?

What can be done against it? Read more
