We live in a society that always wants to be flawless. A society that can never be fully satisfied. We always want to improve ourselves, do more self-optimization, become sportier, happier and more fulfilled. It goes always higher, further, faster. Better.

Oh, wow. How long we waited for the summer. How nice to see Berlin finally blossoming. Berlin can be very sad, lonely and lethargic in winter… Dragging our mood with it.

We talked with her to find out what do we need to have a healthy relationship with ourselves.Continue reading “Soul Talk: Find your Inner Path”
How many of my thoughts are just spilled wine? Promises of a future that became stains. They will always be there for me to remember who I was and the life I aspired. They come from a time where I used to think how much I had already accomplished. My young mind was impossible to break down, happiness was always present due to the promise of time. I looked to days to come like constellations high above in the night sky. What is there to find out? How long would it take me to get there? How small was I compared to them, how big can I grow?
