Do You Listen?

I’ve just had a conversation with artist and life coach Christine Lehtinen. The topic was of course me and my dreams. (Yes, again.) Some people might see me as a big talker, and I do talk, but I also enjoy listening. Christine is a fantastic listener, which made me realise how rare it is. Such…

Happy New Year 2018

Finally 2017 is over. Good riddance! It was a crappy year in so many ways. Feels great to get a new year, a clean slate. Phew! Of course not much has changed, but there is a sense of freedom, peace and possible new beginnings. A second chance to get things right, or at least better. “Oh…

Looking For a Savior

Am I looking for a savior? Not Jesus or Buddha, but perhaps a (hu)man savior? Someone who could tell me what and who I am? Do I struggle with my identity? Do I wanna “be” someone in the world? I think the answer to all these questions is – yes. I think others have said…

When In Doubt

Doubt is hard, but a part of life. You doubt yourself and you become insecure. What once seemed clear all of a sudden looks dark and uncertain. I doubt myself almost all the time, it comes in waves, but as I grow older I see the pattern. Unfortunately I still can’t avoid the pitfalls. But…

A Giant Leap

We all know the quote. Even those who weren’t born yet. I was 2 weeks old at the time, when Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon: “One small step for man. One giant leap for man-kind.” is what he said. Amazing. That’s exactly how I felt Friday, launching my brand new Facebook page. Amazing –…

Just a Singing Clown

I love watching unknown, but great singers and performers audition in talent shows. I never watch the entire shows on TV, but clips online on YouTube. I especially like when the jury underestimate somebody because of their looks. Secretly I too would like to be able to surprise the world with my unique (singing) talents.…

Moody Blues

My summer vacation in Kalix ended today and I’m on my way back to Berlin. It’s always difficult to leave my family behind. Another six months before we see each other again. If I’m lucky. Right now my life is very uncertain. I have no job, almost no money and it scares me. I’ve never…

Listen to Your Feelings

I read somewhere, that some people are very preoccupied with their own feelings. Which means they don’t consider other people’s ditto. Being a very sensitive person, strongly feeling my own feelings as well as what I pick up from people around me, I can understand if they seem to take over. But do we listen…

You Are Good Enough

On the job market today I feel lost. It’s like there never has been a place for me, the true me. I’ve always been too tall, too short, too this, too that. I remember a job interview where I wanted to scream “Tell me how you want me to be!” One time I was called…

Happy Birthday To Me

It’s my birthday today. Yay! Do you look back on your life every year, on your birthday or perhaps on New Year’s Eve? Are you grateful for your achievements? Do you remember to thank yourself? I try to be grateful for being me – every day, not just on special occasions. I know what it’s…
