The art of letting go

We are convinced that if we hold on to something, we get to control it. Detachment is unflatteringly associated with loss, therefore pain. We tend to falsely assume that once we let go of the control, of a relationship, of a dream, we lose it forever. When in fact it is quite the opposite. OnceContinue reading “The art of letting go”

Tell me how hard you work, and I will tell you how much you are worth.

Today’s culture appears to be driven by the need to define ourselves and our purpose of living through hard work. Sacrificing time with our families, time spent on our pleasures in the name of some imaginary pedestal described by society became a new trend.  We have been raised in the world of monuments ranking sufferingContinue reading “Tell me how hard you work, and I will tell you how much you are worth.”

How to use uncertainty to your advantage?

It seems a pervasive approach to expect the unexpected, to refrain from making plans. Yet today, more than ever, one can stumble upon articles, self-help books emphasizing the importance of setting goals. Our lives have evolved substantially, as one would like to say into more complexed times. However, I would like to use the termContinue reading “How to use uncertainty to your advantage?”

See beyond the illusion.

Everything which happens to us and around is our mirror.  Whether it is the person you live with, your parent or a stranger in line in front of you, those people (and no exceptions) mirror to us some behaviour, patterns, deeply rooted beliefs which we consciously or unconsciously follow.  Every life occurrence is here forContinue reading “See beyond the illusion.”

Stop hating the ego.

Ego is claimed to be the number one enemy of the self-help craze. It came to be associated with a nasty voice in our head which needs to be destroyed, suppressed, totally eradicated.  You don’t get rid of the ego or the mind. Those are your instruments, just like this body to experience this physicalContinue reading “Stop hating the ego.”

Do not chase. Attract.

I have come to a place in my life, where I no longer feel the need to chase after happiness or rush anything, so I can finally be happy. Because, damn, I am happy. I no longer force others to accept me, love me, because I am loved. I love and accept myself. I noContinue reading “Do not chase. Attract.”

Be independent on your road to your true self.

What does it mean to be independent? To live on your own? To own your apartment? To run your own business? Having lots of money on your bank account? How about taking care of your own energy? What most people tend to do is relying on somebody else to make them feel better, to feelContinue reading “Be independent on your road to your true self.”

Make the ordinary come alive.

Are you craving this epic lifestyle promoted on social media? Are you craving living someone else’s dream? I know that it may seem as if it is difficult to be yourself nowadays.  Living in a society that is constantly bombarding you with their expectations of how you should behave, how social you should become, whereContinue reading “Make the ordinary come alive.”

Comparing yourself to others will be the death of You.

When you look into the mirror do you see yourself or a mixture of external expectations and highly imposed standards? Comparing yourself to others will be the death of your true nature, this raw part of yourself that you knew so well as a child, or in a moment of pure bliss and joy. TheContinue reading “Comparing yourself to others will be the death of You.”

Pod wpływem.

Pod jedynym wpływem, jakim pozwalam sobie być, a zarazem moim naturalnym stanem, jest bycie pod wpływem Siebie. Byłam już pod wpływem opinii innych ludzi, pod wpływem alkoholu, pod wpływem oczekiwań rówieśników, rodziny. To prawda, dostarczały one chwilowej gratyfikacji, ale nigdy spełnienia. Co więcej, stanowiły bezdyskusyjną zbrodnię przeciwko mojej autentyczności. Po kawałku oddawałam siebie, aby mócContinue reading “Pod wpływem.”
