Accept Where You Are, Get What You Want

Sometimes it’s hard to accept where we’re at. And for me it became harder after my 40th birthday. Because – “Hello! I’m 40, ain’t I supposed to be at my destination by now?” My vague idea of what I wanted to happen in my life, didn’t get me to where I thought I wanted to be now. The truth is I’m not even sure that what I want is the best for me, because somethings I realized I didn’t really want some of my goals. The other day I read about how, when we reach a certain age and we still don’t have our dreams of having this or that (the ideal house, car, and all the things), maybe it’s better to try to understand what we REALLY want. Because maybe that’s not that. I didn’t like that idea, like I had to give up my dreams after a certain…

How to Have More Time For Your Image & Style (and Other Stuff)

Today I want to tell you about having all the time in the world. For a long time, I hated every household chore – doing the dishes was the one I hated the most, closely followed by all others like: cooking food doing the laundry ironing – this one I still refuse to do ;) etc. And for a long time I thought it was because they’re were boring and repetitive. BORING. And I don’t like anything boring ;) But lately, I’m starting to enjoy more these tasks… at least some of them. I thought about it and I realized it’s because I stopped having so much urgency about time. Because for a lot of time I felt I didn’t have enough time… lol Some phrases I kept saying: I don’t have time for that There’s never enough time Time flies Etc. And as “there’s never enough time”, I had…

Discover What You Desire, Change Your Life and Style

Have you noticed what you REALLY desire? Yesterday I was telling my kids about how now I’m listening much more to my intuion and desires. I noticed this because now I’m taking surf lessons (as you probably already know, because I’ve been talking about it ;)), and what’s funny is that I remember that I always loved surf things. I loved surf swimsuits, the boards, wallets and everything related to surf. The colors, the prints. But it never crossed my mind to surf, until now. Now that I listen better to myself and that I’m starting to know better what’s important to me. Knowing what we want and desire is one of the most important things to be happy. But it isn’t always easy to see this, because we are too distracted. There’s a quote I like a lot, which is: “I dare you to spend one hour with yourself”…

The Magic of Taking Action (With No Motivation)

Do you know when you don’t feel like doing anything at all? You’re feeling tired or annoyed or a bit down… Motivation is at level 0. Well, a great way to change that state is taking action. Doing something. Especially when you don’t feel like doing anything and you’re tired ;) Unless you REALLY are tired and need to rest, of course. But a lot of the times, you’re not really tired, it’s just your mind making you stay wherever you are. Now when I have a thought like “I’m tired” I think – Ok, great, and what’s next ;) I don’t pay attention to it at all :) What I noticed later and the message I keep hearing is that motivation isn’t really that necessary. And motivation comes after you start. I’ve seen that in play when I workout. I decided to workout every Saturday in the gym, for…

One Thing that Stops You From Doing What You Want

Lately I’ve been feeling a lack of inspiration to write on the blog. There’s a lot of resistance! I talked before about my doubts regarding what to write about. On the one side, I feel like writing more about personal development, coaching, and so on. Which is one of my passions. I’m always learning more and discovering things that I think that are interesting for you too! On the other side, I think you rather hear about fashion and style. So I stay stuck ;) In the meanwhile, I’ve decided to write about the two themes, because really, coaching helps with any change, including your image and style. So I hope you like it! Today I want to tell you about resistance. I realized resistance sucks. And what is resistance? – you ask ;) For me, resistance is a super annoying thing that shows up when you decide to do…
