What do you desire? What makes your heart beat?

Hello Sunshines! We tend to forget our dreams, our goals because of the routine, the busy schedules between family, work, friends and daily chores and all that's on our "to do list". But take a second and think of what really matters. I find it's always good to get some perspective and see the bigger picture. What will you remember from your life? Is it the new car you bought, the latest phone, the new pair of shoes or the 100th fancy party you attended? This happiness is only temporary and doesn't last. So find what truly makes you happy and go for it!

I know it's hard to break free from the routine and our daily lives, as we need to pay the bills and have responsibilities. But is paying the bills a good enough reason to keep working at a job you don't like or that makes you stressed and unhappy? I'm struggling a bit myself with this, as of course it's not all black or white. I know what I want and I'm on my way to my dream job and life. I found my passion with wellness, nutrition and coaching and I am working on transforming this into a career and the minute I took the decision to do so, - after a lot of thinking and having doubts-  it really felt like it was meant to be. I see more and more around me friends and people struggling to find what they truly want to do with their lives. Some are not happy with their current job, some dream of something bigger but aren't sure what that is. As Steve Jobs said: "Don't settle, keep looking".  Ask yourself the right questions. It's not the money that really matters (well of course it's still important, I'm not going to lie...you don't want to live under a bridge, right?!) but there's so much more than money in life. And you can find happiness in so many ways, in every day life and I truly think it comes from within ourselves. And as the saying goes: "Happiness is a journey not a destination". We tend to always wait for the perfect moment to be finally happy. When I'll graduate, when I'll find a job, when I'll get married, when I'll have kids...well you know how it goes. We all did it. But we need to enjoy the present moment and forget about when everything will be perfect, because it never is, and in a way, that's the beauty of it.

Follow your passion; follow your heart. It has to feel right and decisions comes from within your heart and intuition. There is something inside of you that will feel good the moment you take the right decision for your happiness. When you start doing what you love, you will shine, you will create a wave of joy around you and within you that you will no longer want to settle for anything less than the bliss you get from doing what you were truly meant to do.

 

"Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become."

Steve Jobs

Gratitude brings happiness!

Have you heard about a gratitude journal?

It's a great way to shift your day, energy and add some rays of positivity and happy thoughts to your routine. I discovered this a few months ago and love the energy and good vibes it brings. You basically write 3 to 5 things in a journal that you are grateful for in your day or week. You will wake up and go through your day more conscious of looking for the good things that happen instead of going through your daily duties without much thoughts. You will start to appreciate all the little things that come up on your way and be thankful for them instead of taking them for granted. The nice walk on your way to work, a postcard you received, a magical talk with a friend. When you start paying more attention, you really appreciate those moments even more and it's much better than focusing on all the things that go wrong or negative vibes. As Oprah said: “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

 

"We think we have something to be grateful or something has to be done in order for us to be grateful, when gratitude is a state of being." Iyanla Vanzant

"The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see." Dr. Robert Holden

"Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it's important to pause every now and then to appreciate all that we have, on every level." Shakti Gawain

"Gratitude is the single most important ingredient to living a successful and fulfilled life.Jack Canfield

Happy positive day!

We can all do it!

True inspiration in this video from a war veteran who injured himself with too many jumps in parachute and couldn't walk unassisted...at least that's what the doctors said... until he decided he wanted more from life...and found yoga.  It's a lesson and uplifting message to keep believing in yourself even though no one is..and that everything you put your mind to, you can achieve!

Happy Sunny Day!

Beautiful words...to inspire!

I love sayings that inspire and motivate us to keep going on the right track, put a smile on our face or confirm what we believe in. It's always a good feeling to see on writing, that we're not the only one dreaming big- and that we should keep doing it. It is not always easy to figure out your life, where to go, what to do, what to expect from life and what is destiny and what are the things you can do to change your path if you're not happy. At what point is dreaming, too much? Is it better to dream less in order to be less disspointed? Less expectations means less pain, but it also means less enjoyment. It might be tempting to give up your dreams because they seem too far away or unreachable or just because there's also a part of destiny that you can't control...but as a strong believer of dreams, I would say: Dream your wildest dreams, believe in them and take the first step!

And as Theodore Roosevelt said: "Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground"...keep dreaming big, but stay connected to yourself and grounded. Take action towards your dreams, in any way you can, even if it's one little step at a time..it is the first one, the most important one.

As Martin Luther King Jr. said:

 

And if there's nothing you can do because it's not in your power, then just hope for beautiful things to happen, be open to changes and keep pursuing your dreams- Never ever give up.
