Imagination is everything
So Spoke the Fortune Cookie =)

So Spoke the Fortune Cookie =)

Weeks have gone by without affirmations. Well here’s our new one; the one for the first week of the new year. It came in the form of the last fortune cookie, left over from a New Year’s Eve get-together after our friends had gone home.
Yep, it hits the spot. In fact I like it so much I’d even make it affirmation of the year.

One simple and effective phrase:

“Use your talents!”

About time we all did I think. Go create! ;-)

Grow Your Dreams =)

Grow Your Dreams =)

What are you good at? Which are your talents and favorite skills?
We grow up in a world in which we are generally confronted with the image of work=bad and weekend=good. In my opinion this is one of the saddest mindsets you can possibly end up with. Instead of only going after jobs which you “have to do for the money” find room for the things you’d really love to do and at which you are really good.

Chaos or Clarity? It's up to You =)

Chaos or Clarity? It's up to You =)

Wow, chaos appears to be the ruling planet of this November. Excuse the silence here on the blog. We’re moving soon and things became far more jumbled than I had hoped. In the middle of all of this I realized again how much my surroundings affect my mood – and how my mood affects my surroundings. Chaos brings more chaos. Clarity brings more clarity.

It’s a challenge to pack most of your belongings into boxes and still keep the place all neat and tidy (and also homey) – especially when you know that you’ll be moving out anyways. So there’s a pile of books we need to pack and a pile of kitchen things and one, two, three, four boxes in this corner, and more in the other – and let’s just drop that here for a moment and pick up this instead…Then, before you notice it, your mind mirrors that mess, presenting you with seemingly chaotic thinking about everything that still needs to be done. Loose ends everywhere. Chaos.

Even when Shopping, Think: "Love It or Leave It" - That'll Save You from Loads of Junk ;-)

Even when Shopping, Think: "Love It or Leave It" - That'll Save You from Loads of Junk ;-)

Take a closer look at the things which you have in your life. Most of us own a lot of things which we don’t really need. But apart from needing or not needing the things we own, there is one factor which is at least as important:

Do you love this thing?
This idea of “love it or leave it” has become my catchphrase when I’m clearing out, especially when I’m not sure about something.

Motivation and Inspiration when You Need It =)

Motivation and Inspiration when You Need It =)

Sometimes it’s a challenge to keep the spirit. Sometimes it’s a challenge to keep yourself going. Luckily there are many things which you can use to motivate yourself. The one thing which we’re introducing here is The Happy Box.

This is a box which you keep in an easily accessible place. It can be any type of box that you like, but try to pick something special rather than a battered old shoe box.

Push the Limits! =)

Push the Limits! =)

What you are able to do depends on your beliefs. As Henry Ford is said to have put it:
”If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.“

So this week’s affirmation is there to push those limits in our mind with a simple and effective phrase:

„No matter what my goal is, I can reach it!“

Halloween Costumes vs. Every Day Costumes

Halloween Costumes vs. Every Day Costumes

Today some of us dress up for Halloween: bring out a different identity, be something else, leave behind the ordinary, come out and play. That’s awesome plus the best effect of a good costume is fun.=)

Clothes can alter the mood and mindset of the wearer to a great extent, not only on special occasions. Ever felt over- or under-dressed? Ever had an awkward feeling all day because you were wearing something that was “not you”? There’s a lot more to clothes than just covering and warming our bodies.

Words Have Power - Might as well Use It.

Words Have Power - Might as well Use It.

Words have power – and an energy too. When working on your self and your life, become aware of the words which you are using. How often do you use negative phrases like “I hate…”, “I don’t want…”, “F*** this!” etc.? The words and expressions which you are using are a great mirror for the way in which your mind is currently working (especially when you’re on “autopilot”).

If there’s a lot of irritation, negation and discontent in your vocabulary and reactions, this only reflects your thoughts and feelings. You can transform those attitudes by consciously transforming the words which you are using.
