I suffered from anxiety disorder for seven long years. Being stuck in your mind, battling your own scary thoughts and trying to stay sane is a condition I wouldn’t even wish my worst enemy. It literally sucks the life force out of you and I remember looking like a fraction of who I really was. […]
I’m writing this post to my past self. The girl that was stuck in severe anxiety and nearly killed herself by wanting to do everything perfectly. That girl that felt she needed to be special, to do her utmost best and be a kind of prodigy in order to be deemed normal, to be accepted, […]
It all started with a breakdown. A moment in which I crossed my own boundaries and betrayed my partner of six years. It was a painful wakeup call which showed me the crystal clear truth: that I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t enjoying life anymore. I wasn’t really living. This moment of turmoil turned a separation […]
When I decided to move to Florence, Italy in 2010 I had no idea how much it would impact not only my life, but also my personality. I’m a completely different person now because of everything I’ve been through. I’ve had to adapt, change and creatively find ways to survive here. I’ve had to do […]
“Well, that’s just impossible.” How often have you heard your dear parents, your best friends or your kind colleagues say this when you were talking about your big, bold dream? Better question yet: how often have you heard yourself say this? My heart sinks when I think of how many dreams have died because of […]
That following your dream feels good as f*ck is an understatement – and also something that everybody can sort of imagine. But there are also many unknown side effects to following your dream, which I’ve experienced first-hand and would like to share in this post, so that you big leap takers know what kind of […]
It felt like I’d been looking for the love of my life from the very moment I was born. Every face and every circumstance would provide me with another chance to find him; to finally feel complete, whole and give meaning to my life. My heart and soul were aching for it every step of […]
I Just Want to Be Fucking Free Free to roam the streets without anyone seeing me. Free to live out loud and to sit with myself silently. Free to ask for what I need and receive it unapologetically. Free to go to places and walk till I hit the sea. Free to fully let go […]
Do you feel stressed on holiday because of all the things you feel you need to do? Do you feel guilty for not enjoying it enough or are you afraid to be missing out? Well, how about tending to your own needs first and then, only when you’re ready and have your energy back, start […]
Holding on tightly and forcing things to happen sometimes causes the opposite of what we want to reach. How can you try to let go of things and trust that whatever needs to happen will happen?
In this vlog I take you to my go to place in the Tuscan countryside to reflect away on the secret behind fear. We usually treat fear as our enemy, but what if being afraid could actually mean you’ve hit a pot of gold? Well, then it’s all about knowing how to deal with fear […]
In this vlog I’m not wearing any make up and I have bags under my eyes due to lack of sleep. To be honest, it’s pretty scary to put it out there, but I felt I needed to because I want to invite you to embrace your so-called ugliness, in other words, your uniqueness and […]
This is what happens when you say yes to things that make you go ‘yes!’, and no to things that make you go ‘no’.
‘Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.’ This quote inspired me to shoot this little video and to ask you to reflect on what the value of being you actually is. Enjoy!
What we believe about ourselves basically defines what our lives look like. So, consider this for a second: in what ways are you keeping yourself small? What beliefs do you hold about yourself that aren’t actually true? Pretty interesting to consider since it can bring about a great shift in your life! Coaching helps you […]
Like some of you might know, I’m writing a book about my experiences of trying to become my own best friend forever – my own BFF. Why? Because I strongly believe that the relationship we have with ourselves greatly, if not totally, influences our happiness & well-being. This is because it helps us become much […]
‘My life sucks and I can’t help it. It’s just that my parents did a really bad job at raising me since they always put my siblings first. Then, at school I always got the worst teachers and they would never let me express my true potential. I had some friends, but they let me […]
This is actually a very good question. Many people don’t have a clue of what a coach does exactly, so I thought it would be a good idea to shine some light on the matter. Now that I just wrote this last expression, I realized I already answered the question. Because ‘shining light on the […]
