Your Dream Is Important

I think we all have a dream – at least one – but it may be hard to discover. Often it’s hidden deep within, and is difficult to find because of the old junk covering it: patterns, habits, feelings, thoughts, social programmings. Sometimes we are afraid to even acknowledge our dream. A treasure must be…

Let Yourself Be Inspired

We all feel lost at times, wondering who we really are and what we want to do with our lives. I don’t like being lost at sea, particularly if it’s a sea of self pity. Who wants to spend time there? But when it happens anyway it’s such a joy to find inspiration, something to push me back to the safe shore…

Turquoise

The sun rides over open fields . A turquoise ocean splashes background . Eternity is ticktocking over the mountains . Dusk falls, . One turquoise drop at a time . The elephant rests, . In the stillness of the wind . The night breathes   Some sort of poem based on the word “turquoise”. Written…

Wanting to Be Seen

Why are people creative and artistic? What draws them into that field? I watched a clip with actor Colin Firth and had to laugh. His description of an actor fits me like a glove. Not that I’m an actor, but maybe all artists really are confused people – in constant identity crisis – looking for…

Longing For Peace

It’s very peaceful in my home right now: the balcony door is open, I hear birds chirping, the wind in the trees, and the sun is shining through the leaves. I smell the scent of the blossoming linden trees in the air. My outside world matches my inside – but that’s not always the case. I…

Do the Work

When my fear of writing gets too strong I procrastinate by looking for interesting articles on Facebook. I follow groups, people and organisations in various creative fields, and at least one of them always delivers. I find exactly what I need to read – in that moment – to get me going again. This Steven…

Get to Know Your Fear

Fear is horrible. It might do us some good if we are in a life threatening situation and need to flee. But most of the time we fear silly things in everyday life, such as going to a party, having to make an important phone call, trying something new, making a presentation at work etc. Like…

Swedish at Heart

Since I moved to Berlin I have thought about nationality, and what makes you feel connected to the country you were born in. Of course language, family and friends are part of the package, but in my case I don’t find traditions especially important. I see myself as a kind of free spirit, but I can’t deny…

Fighting Tofu

Last year I started off very bravely. It was my time to write that great script. I was on fire! But somehow the fire went out – again. Then a friend stuck a book in my hands. “Read this!” And I did.

Write That Book

…or tell that story. There are most certainly people out there who need to read or hear it. Writer’s block is just your ego and fear feeding you lies. So when will you stop listening to that voice and start listening to your heart? The founder of the Get Your Book Done program, Christine Kloser, said something…

Unleashing Miracles

Sometimes all it takes is a group of likeminded people. “To do what?”, you may ask. To help you find your way again. This Spring I’ve attended two workshops called “Unleashing Miracles” and now I feel excited about myself and my life. I know I’m doing what I’m supposed to do be doing. Jobina Bardai…
