5 Things You Should Never Do On Valentines Day.

14 Feb

1. Be a sour cynic.

But it’s so commercial, so American, so expensive, so stressful, so lame, so overdone you might say? People, it’s just for one day. Grinches don’t like Christmas, Cinderella might not like Mother’s Day but you know what? At the stroke of midnight whatever day it is, it’s over with a poof of magic dust and then it’s another calendar day. Or the same day on the other side of the world!

2. Think it’s only a day for loved-up couples.

Love is universal. Love is for singles, pets, children, the environment and couples. If you are looking for love and you feel it overly highlights your singledom, then read unique love stories to renew your hope, then go out and kick up your heels and be open to sinful desserts and guilty pleasures.

If you are single and happy, Valentine’s Day is an awesome excuse to treat and spoil yourself.

  • Book yourself in for a massage.
  • Eat your favourite food.
  • Unwrap your best, high cacao content chocolate.
  • Order a book you’ve had on your wish list for ages.
  • Catch a movie.
  • Or implement a random act of kindness like giving muesli bars to a homeless person.

Something that I like to do on Valentines Day is to create a theme and an atmosphere that sets the day apart from any other day. I am not sure why some people think that celebrating the love you have for each other has to be commercial, flashy or expensive when cake and a really fun conversation can create delightfully happy memories.

This year I’m going for a fairytale theme and here are my questions: Continue reading

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” Pericles

Would you like to be remembered as someone who approached life in a calm and curious way, who lovingly affirmed and praised those close to you, or is it more likely that you are heading in the direction of leaving an imprint as someone who is frustrated, critical and irritated?

If you recognize that even a small part of you is heading towards the latter, here are several things you could do to invite more neutrality and less Continue reading

I give thanks for having a beloved who never fails to surprise and delight me in the way he shows his love. Last birthday he gave me this cute “100 ways why I love you” card. It is just the kind of heart warming gift every Princess loves to treasure.

What one thing do you give thanks for in your relationship?

Why Inspiration Is Everything.

12 Oct

Whether we trip over it by accident, or intentionally seek it out, inspiration is one of the most fulfilling ingredients of life. It invites a deeper sense of connection, a stronger sense of belonging and throws us a lifeline that links us to our particular tribe.

Fascination beckons us to step closer, to lean in, to listen, to look, to drink in the beauty, to marvel at and become enchanted by. If we keep paying attention, something will eventually roar right at us and resonate with the raw passion that lives within. You will know when it awakens, it will make your heart sing, give you goosebumps, bring a tear to your eye, make you giggle with delight and leave you hungry for more.

Inspiration arouses interest, enriches and enlivens. It’s like a relay race. We take what we get given, put our own slant on it, burst forward with productivity and creativity, and pass it forward which in turn inspires others.

Bite size pieces of inspiration are like dragon food. They feed our starving souls and fiery imaginations and drive us forward on our own passionate path fueling us to further engage in new possibilities, to create more ferociously and love more fiercely.

What inspires you?
