My comfort zone

_1250066Let me introduce you to my current comfort zone : my life. And you know what’s about to happen? Growth. Because whats happening right know is getting me nowhere and this has to and will be changed (now).

More focus. On my “worldly” goals and, above all, my spiritual ones. I know I could get everything I want (doesn’t have to be materialistic but involves life qualities such as the feeling of freedom and abundance and unconditional love) within like 10 days IF I ONLY STARTED! Ok, end of speech.

Friday, with a touch of spontaneity, I took the coach and train to my old hometown and visited Anna. She thought a lot of things changed and the distance may be a barrier for us BUT OF COURSE (and luckily) we just vibed so strong together again, felt the love and talked about feelings, goals, thoughts etc. I am so grateful for our connection. Just to be understood. And to have the same idea of what life really means. We went to Bora Bora a.k.a the lake Müritz and went swimming just about the same time that the sun set. “Looks good!” she joked as I tried to heave myself unto the  bathing jetty, which was quite high. “SO take a picture!!” I screamed back before we were bursting with laughter, me still pressing my body on that landing, not able to push it up fully 😀

An honest, authentic, funny, relaxing, spontaneous, yummy, super warm, summery weekend filled with love. So grateful 🙂

Bae, our car and I after one of our most adventurous days so far. Eating unbelievably tasty vegan selfmade pizza and fruits, pancakes and what else – watching the atlantic ocean by night.

 

Is fear stopping you?

it certainly would, if I wouldn’t stop it from doing so first.I can get really nervous before doing something that I can’t completely control in terms of “what will happen/how will it be/can I do this/…” This happens the most when I am about to try something new. Music classes, group events, or – most frequent – sports. Whilst writing this I kinda realize that it could just be appointments in general which stress me out… mh. Anyways, I’ve always been a sporty kid. Not always by choice, but it played a huge role in my life all along. Strangely, it happens that I am super nervous before a training… even if I know what to expect! But it’s just the mind which tells me “Argh, you must plan, you have to schedule that and then you’re not even sure what will happen – whereas at home (aka comfort zone) everythings so safe and relaxed!”

_1290658Same thing today when Lotte asked me to come along to her frisbee class tonight. Whuat, today?? I was afraid of the circumstances… concerned about if I felt good enough, the weather conditions, my timing… however, I went. And it was great. Exhaustingly great and fricking cold.

_1290654 Not that it was simply freezing, it started to rain and then soft hail, wich really hurt our frozen hands! But we continued, dried a little, got soaked by the rain again and finally ended the training with contentment happiness! I definitely learned (once again)that I can approach new things more relaxed and laid back, because everything will work out fine 🙂

_1290723It’s a while ago that I felt SUCH GRATITUDE for my home and a hot shower, wow! I know guys, it’s uncomfortable to admit, but the comfort zone is so much cozier after leaving it (and then coming back) 🙂 Next we watched Game of Thrones and now I am super done, in a positive way! Looking forward to being productive tomorrow! Night! ❤

It takes courage to do the first action, everything that follows is your reward! The universe takes care of everything and gives you all that is good – if you only take the first step!

Breathe in

           

We arrived- finally! 25 hours on the road and ferry, 5 passengers with lots of food and even more baggage. We slept in our sleeping bags in a corner of a hallway on the ferry, which brought us over to Sweden over night 🙂 it’s fresh and both sunny and rainy here, but the air is so crisp and awesome, it’s just fantastic 😀 I’m gonna sleep well tonight, I wish the same to you too ❤

Back to nature – Sweden

Why am I still awake… after a students party marathon and a very short and cold night last night… Yeah right because I really want to update my blog before heading off to the next adventure – SWEDEN tomorrow!

It really makes sense, you’ll see – my sister got herself a car, my stepdad planned to go up north for a week, she wanted to come along and offered to drive with her new car. With her she takes two of her best buddies… and me! When I came back from Portugal I got asked because there was still one seat left in the car, so I was like why not haha! It’s always such a beautiful time up there (my stepdad is lucky enough to own a cute little house in the middle of Swedens nowhere) and so I am really exited 🙂 Fortunately, when in Sweden and in the countryside, you almost don’t need anything… comfy pants, sweater, outdoor jacket. Guitar, camera, music, wine 🙂 Still have to pack my things and make provisions tomorrow, and this time we’ll even have wi-fi in the house (first time for me in like 10 years) so maybe I can still blog 🙂 But primarily I want to use the time to get back to nature, back to myself… training mindfulness and being aware of all those little things 🙂

Sleep well and see you later girls and boys ❤

Vegan temple

Little update x

I went to Schönhauser Allee on monday to get some things I love Germany for, i.e. vegan shampoo for 60 cents and lots of cruelty free products and food for peanuts! I also ad to stop by the mall to get myself a cozy sweater (thanks goodness there are still tiny bits of winter sale items!), because it is still very-very-very cold 😛

On my way back I spotted a poster announcing SCOOTER in concert HAHAHA! That’s so Berlin, actually Anna and I have to go and show off our very personalized shuffle-dance style 😀

Next, yesterday the two of us met at Warschauer Strasse, which I’ve only ever seen by night (party hotspot), but this time I was surprised by its diversity ! We planned to go to GOODIES, a vegan café which -I should have known that before because it’s the same everywhere- shares a place with VEGANZ, our german vegan foodstore chain! Even more surprising was that we found the vegan restaurant THE BOWL on the second floor, which I’ve been following on instagram for ages and never had a clue where to find it! Crazy! So this place is obviously a vegan temple – pure awesomeness! We had incredibly good cake (the one on the picture was mine until I realized that I ordered the wrong one and mixed up the descriptions – this one contains gluten which I can’t have, but luckily I could switch it to a raw vegan stracciatella cake *_*) and a business talk about our latest ´project – stay tuned! xx

Sun on my face

_1250404I love it! I love the warmth and the sun on my back, legs, feet, face, sculp, arms etc! I love being able to lay outside carelessly because it’s just so warm that you could spend hours in the park or on the beach in your fluttery dress. The warmness of the blanket from beneath, the tingling sunrays from above. I love it and I will come back to it ☼

We are gonna leave Portugal for a bit. Maybe it’s just a short visit home or even a longer period in Germany. Either way, we are gonna hit the road again soon. Til then, Porto pleases us with summer-like weather, begging us to stay, and I’d definitely come back. But home’s nice as well and there are some projects in the planning, which are easier to do/start from home (some parts at least). So stay tuned and look forward to some Berlin-Inspiration ❤
