Home is embracing the silence

Hi guys! How are you today?

As for myself, I really feel like I want to go home today! 

Where is your home? Some people say home is the town where they grew up. Others say it is the country where they were born. For many people home is their family or religion.

To me home can be my favorite bar, a shopping street or a chair in the sun in front of my apartment. 

But most of all, home is to share a beautiful moment with a person that I love! Home is where I feel at ease!

I can call a place in nature home. There might be a special tree or rock that I have seen hundreds of times. I can feel its peaceful being which calms my soul. It´s those places where time stops and you just be and never want to leave!

I feel at home when I hear my favorite song in the radio while driving my car. A taste or a smell can remind me of home, too.

Home is when you stroke your cat or give your child a hug. Home is where they like you even if you´re acting like a fool.

Home is watching a clear sky full of stars and embracing the silence.

What is home to you?

On my way home ;-)

We are beautiful!

Hi Ladies:

Today, I want to talk about how we ladies get along with our own gender in society. This topic is not an easy one but I am going to address it anyhow, as it is important to me.

For most of you readers it´s self-evident that all women deserve a life with the opportunity to be educated, to work, to be healthy and to participate in all aspects of life. Yet all over the world women and girls still have to cope with rigid gender norms which lead to minor access to important resources and also to violations of their rights. There is still much to be done to create a better understanding between the genders. But how do we feel living with our own gender? Do we share understanding, acceptance and compassion?

My male yoga teacher recently told our all-female class how much fun it is to work with us in comparison with his male yoga classes because we are not so much into competition. Well, that`s good news! But how do we perceive ourselves?

At the gym I feel very good female vibes. We are working out and having a lot of fun together and there is also this feeling of working on myself. I also have very close female friends where I can be who I am. Friendship is all about acceptance and trust. But in some areas of life I see quite the opposite. From my own personal experience it is not easy to work in a group of females. Women often split up in groups and gossip instead of supporting each other. If you have a daughter you already know that this starts very early in life. I would be happy to know if males have the same experience with their own gender. I guess they go through similar processes.

What is the reason for the antipathy we have against another woman? Is she wearing the wrong shirt or does she have an ugly voice? Is it about envy?

If you don´t love what you see in others it is very likely that you don´t love yourself! You probably look into the mirror of your own shadows. We should acknowledge our own beauty and wisdom and not undermine ourselves. Check your attitude towards yourself, and then you might understand what you dislike in others. And don´t get me wrong, I don´t want to offend anybody, let´s just think about it, I am also still in the learning process.

We share the same energy with other females! We should be helping and supporting each other instead of bullying and fighting ourselves. Let´s form a team and complement each other! Let´s stand in our true power and show others - especially our kids - that we´re accepting ourselves as who we are!

So just hang in there – love yourself!
