• No such Thing as a Life that’s Better than Yours

    Warning! Explicit Content! This post might change some. “No such thing as a life that’s better than yours” – J. Cole from Love Yourz Well, J. Cole I don’t know. This is not what I’m feeling whenever I open one of my hola-bitches-my-life-is-cooler-than-yours-plus-I-am-having-the-time-of-my-life social media apps. I mean seriously though, look at them. This kid just bought a Lambo from the money earned from making slime videos on youtube. Also, look at that girl and her super adorable boyfriend working out together. And here, this person is sipping margaritas in Bora Bora on an air mattress while floating on crystal clear water. Over a Million likes. Caption: “enjoy life’s little…

  • Happiness is Like Glass

    I came across a really cool quote the other day: “Happiness is like glass, it can be all around you, yet be invisible. But if you change your angle of viewing a little, it will reflect light more beautifully than any other object around you.” -Lelouch Lamperouge Lelouch Lamperouge must have been a wise man, I thought, after reading this. I pictured him as an old man with a long white beard and round glasses. Boy was I mistaken. Fun fact: Lelouch Lamperouge is actually a character from a Japanese anime series. Young, energetic with some stellar violet eyes. I like his take on happiness. “Happiness is like glass…” How accurate,…

  • Feeling lost in a world full of people (7,646,716,028 to be exact)

    I h0p3 y0u guys ar3 f0nd 0f num63rs, 90nna thr0w in s0m3, 3nj0y 🙂 7,646,716,028. The number of people living on our planet right now as I am writing this sentence on August 31st 2018 at 19:28. 313,207 births and 129,020 deaths. Scientists have calculated the world to be 4,54 billion years old. Our species, Homo Sapiens, has been existing since 250,000 to 300,000 years. Big numbers raise big questions These numbers are so big, it’s hard to comprehend their meaning. They make us wonder about life and its purpose. Naturally we ask ourselves, why are we here and what is the whole point of living? Are we here to achieve something?…

  • From FOMO to JOMO Because YOLO (Too Much? LoL)

    For optimal experience the reader is advised to carefully scan the following definitions: FOMO = Fear Of Missing Out YOLO = You Only Live Once JOMO = Joy Of Missing Out (I am a biggo JOMO advocate) LOL = Laughing Out Loud (personal favorite) When YOLO hit us it was everywhere and everyone was living it. We have all been there, done that. Period. Whenever we hear someone say YOLO nowadays we can’t help but feel they haven’t catched up yet. Somehow left behind. FOMO Fever Because now we are talking FOMO. Doing our everything to not miss out on anything. To make it to all the gatherings. Because we…

  • Dreaming up a life is way cozier than living the dream

    We all know this one person who gives us the incredibly smart and very original advice that “everything is possible” and “the sky is the limit” so just go and do, right? “Just do it!” (Thank you, Nike). And yes, this is me being sarcastic. If you are like me, you might feel slightly overwhelmed after such a motivational ‘push-me-to-the-edge’ preach. Don’t get me wrong, I thrive on motivational videos. I follow all the big guys out there on my Instagram. The hustlers and grinders, the executors and all-nighters. With all their lovely videos that pop up on my feed. Perfectly equipped with subtitles, so you don’t even have to turn…

  • How to Become World Changers, Life Savers and Ultimate Power Rangers

    You know these days where you walk solely by yourself not feeling quite well? Where you are in a rather bad mood, a negative state, feeling somewhat down? But then you look up and see another person passing by meeting you with a smile? You instantly feel better. About everything that bothered you just a second ago. Somehow this seemingly insignificant encounter with a complete stranger that greeted you with kindness changed your day for the better. This happened to me very recently and really made me feel so much better about myself. In fact, I felt so inspired that I came up with a small poem: And remember to…

  • Just be who you are…or who you are not

    “Just be yourself.” What does that even mean? Personally, for me, it represents a rather empty phrase. Do we even care for people to freely be themselves? Don’t we tend to frame people according to our own realities, experiences, expectations and prejudices?  How open are we really towards getting to know someone for who they truly are? In the end, don’t we want them to be what we want them to be? I don’t even believe that we know who we are. Do you know who you are? Aren’t we constantly changing and evolving like so many things in life? If I look at an old baby picture of myself I…

  • What sunflowers can teach us about life

    I was taking a sunny walk, which lead me to a beautiful field full of sunflowers. To be honest with you, sunflowers used to be my last pick at a florist’s, but that changed on that day. As I was standing in front of the vast yellow I realized something incredible about sunflowers. Their heads all pointed to the same direction, at the sun. They are following the sun constantly, because they need the sun in order to nourish, blossom and grow so sunflowers actively expose their most to the sunlight. To some this observation might be nothing new and, hey, I agree it’s not rocket science, but I never consciously…
