Recently, I have been thinking about independence. Oftentimes we call ourselves independent when we start making decisions for ourselves or earning our living. When it comes to financial independence, it makes sense – when we grow up and start working, we become financially independent from our parents. However, what about the choices and decisions that we make? Are they truly independent? Continue reading
How fairy tales can prevent us from finding true happiness
From the earliest years we are told countless fairy tales. The little girls are fed with all those stories where the handsome prince comes on the white horse saving the princess… And they live happily ever after… However, no one seems to realize that these repeated threads stay in the subconsciousness of the child, creating the false presumptions in their later life. Continue reading
The key to good relationships with people
We all have many different kinds of relationships in our lives. Whether it’s a relationship with our family members, friends, lovers or business partners, many people sooner or later seem to face crisis, misunderstandings or even fights. I believe that more often than not these problems can be avoided by working on the way we communicate with other people. Continue reading
Is someone in your life telling you how you should live?
When I first thought about writing this post, I felt furious. It was the topic I wanted to address that made me feel this way. You see, there is this problem that is so widespread we hardly even notice it any more and I feel I am a victim of as well. Continue reading
I haven’t been writing for quite a while, so I thought it’s high time to do so… The autumn has brought the cold and gloomy days and more and more often I find myself staying at home instead of going out, drinking hot chocolate or a nice spicy tea, usually chai. And when it comes to this type of tea, there is one brand I have recently fell in love with, which offers delicious teas with really rich flavours. Plus, to each teabag there is a tiny paper with a wise quote attached. This is a feature that I must say, I absolutely adore! Continue reading
A few serious words from the past
Recently, I’ve been cleaning and I have come across something I have forgotten about a long time ago. It was a white A4 page covered on both sides with words. And these words formed an article which has contained my reflections on life. I have written it years ago – I must have been around 16 or 17 years old. Also, for this reason I was really surprised when I read it. It seems that my views and observations that I have found so true in life and have forgotten for many years, have already appeared back then. And it sounds refreshing written in the words of a teen! That’s why I want to share it with you. Hopefully, someone apart from me will find it equally interesting (and at times also funny 😉 ). Continue reading
Guest post: Are You Holding On Too Tight?
I don’t usually post articles that are not written by myself, but today I’ve read one that explains the matter that has been on my mind for such a long time so perfectly that I wanted to share it here. It’s about holding on to things in life. Really thought-provoking! Continue reading
A thought from high above
Recently, I had travelled a lot and that also included plenty of flights. There are many people I know who are afraid of flying or simply do not enjoy it because of the discomfort of dry air and the pressure which plugs their ears. As for me, I have always had positive associations with being on an airplane. And, surprisingly, it’s not because of the sense of adventures waiting for me when I arrive at my destination.

Why you need to start changing your life by changing what you put on your plate
It’s hard to find a person who hasn’t heard about the need to eat healthy. We hear almost every day that the preservatives in food are bad for us, that eating sugar causes wrinkles, diabetes and cancer and that eating greasy foods leads to heart diseases. Still, it seems that often times people LISTEN to all the advice but don’t actually end up HEARING it. Continue reading
Big girls don’t cry… Do they?
Do you ever feel completely powerless, unable to move? Do you ever feel confused with life, not knowing what to do with it? Do you ever find yourself crying because of the enormous pain growing inside you for no apparent reason? And it all makes you feel even worse about yourself because in the end you have nothing to complain about. After all, there are people in this world who are starving, have no roof above their head or are fighting with cancer. And you find yourself so horribly ungrateful, even spoiled for crying over your life. Well, I must tell you, you are not alone. I have also suffered from the feelings of pointlessness, feeling powerless and confused, asking myself ‘When does it all end? Where am I headed? What am I to do with myself?’. Continue reading
