Praise the women because they are much more than you can imagine, even in your wildest dreams.

If you should tell me attributes a woman has then I would answer tell me attributes a woman has NOT!

So so so much misunderstanding of who we truly are is still so present on this earth although we proved more than enough that these fairy tales without happy ending are NOT true.

Women are NOT the supposedly weaker sex and if you are honest you all know that!

Women care for their families no matter what, they stand up even if they have the feeling that they break down.

Women manage whole communities.

Women survive pain and loss and grow stronger.

Women protect their family like only a lioness is able to.

Women create life and give birth.

Women can love endlessly even then when their hearts were broken.

Women are powerful and strong.

Women know that they deserve better.

Women are leaders.

Women are brave.

Women are awesome.

Women still receive lower pay and fewer opportunities for career and business development.

Women achieved lots but there’s still a long long way ahead of us.

One thing which we don’t want is, we don’t want to be men – just because we want our rights doesn’t mean that we want to be a man! Believe me, the majority of women is entirely happy to be born as a woman and not as a man 🙂

We believe in our self and we empower other women to start believing in themselves.

We have dreams and we go for it – we don’t want to be harassed, abused or more, we want to be who we truly are without the judgement of men. If we want to wear a short skirt we do so and this will never be an invite!

We believe that the future for women is bright because we will make it bright!

Dears – have an awesome international women day and celebrate the goddess in you!

The tribe of strong women is already there, we need to support each other and we will grow and get what we deserve!

be free

be wild

be you

stay strong

be soft

live the diversity

Cheers!

Six years ago…

Six years ago...

Six years ago…

Six years ago I would’ve never pictured my life the way it is now.

Six years ago I planned my first single vacation in Italy

Six years ago I tried to become happy again just on my own and with myself.

Six years ago I was far away from thinking about my own wedding.

Six years ago I was not thinking that a man would step into my life and turn it upside down so quickly.

Six years ago I wasn’t even aware where exactly Libya is on the map (I knew Northern Africa, but that’s all I knew).

Six years ago I wasn’t able to touch my toes easily.

Six years ago I never imagined myself being a yogi.

Six years ago I never thought that I will have my own blog.

Six years ago I tried to get more balance in my life.

Six years ago I wouldn’t have cooked lamb meat.

Six years ago I thought Prada shoes are what I desperately need.

Six years ago my life was completely different.

Six years ago I had not the slightest idea of how wonderful motherhood feels like.

Six years ago I didn’t know that I would have a sweet family of three in a few years.

Six years ago I had no idea where Libya is.

Six years ago I just wanted to put my head under the blanket and wait for better times.

Six years ago I told myself I had to look up again.

Six years ago I thought all doors are closed.

Six years ago I wasn’t able to imagine how loved I will be six years later.

Six years ago are thankful six years ago and there were so so so many lessons learned since then. Life changes and so did I – taking a step back to see where I am today is good. I look back and am thankful, thankful of how it all turned out, thankful of the past, thankful of each single tear, thankful of being strong enough to change what can be changed and thankful that I am today right here, right now.

How was your life six years ago?

How should women be in 2013?

How should women be in 2013?If you just look around you on a normal day and listen to what media and magazines think women should be like I’m pretty sure that this is nothing a woman could fulfill.
We first of all have to be dressed perfectly and stylish and take care of our body. Undone hair is a no go unless it’s just the newest trend and en vogue. Besides we also need to be successful in our full time job and raise children as if we always were mothers. Next to us the perfect husband, successful too and a loving father. Problems are nonexistent, or let me say if there are some then just because the personal trainer had to cancel a session or the flights are delayed. We handle all with a smile on our face and bad mood, what is that?
We shouldn’t be too cute but also not too sexy. Our sense of humor shouldn’t be completely funny, that’s too boyish nor completely serious, it could mean we tend to be boring. We should act mainstream but think forth going, thinking over the edge.
Please tell me how should this be possible?
A few tips I agree on like never talk about the men of your past – nobody wants to be compared and you shouldn’t compare either – something new means you open a new chapter in your life and the past belongs to the past. That’s true but nevertheless we only are what we are because of past experiences but I agree on don’t giving them names or details.
Ups, and we have to be skinny but healthy, this may work for a few but for sure not for all. I’m not the person who wants to be high sized and fortunately can eat whatever without gaining weight but honestly, what means skinny? Only skin and bones looks unhealthy from my point of view and women should have a shape. So please eat! Women are humans also and who can live without food? Food is pleasure…at least for me!
In regards to fashion I wouldn’t go completely with the newest fashion pieces as no one except of models can wear these combinations. Have you ever seen an average woman who can wear the pieces presented on fashion show stages without looking ridiculous, bitchy or undressed?
I found another tip where I also agree on. Accept the child in you – life is serious enough so acting goofy is essential from time to time.
But careful because when it comes to what we should be like we have to hide our next steps – nothing is more boring than persons where you exactly know what they will do next. For instance being goofy.
What would be my on tip of how women should be in 2013?
The main points from my point of view are the following:
– be yourself and don’t try to please others
– take care of yourself
– be truthfully, reliable and honest
– love
– have fun
– live every moment
Be faithful, cherish what you have and love life like it is!

Things you should do once in your life

Things you should do once in your life
 
 
You will find thousands of these listings in many women magazines and they differ. I just tried to start some of them and these are the results and what I think about it so far.

1. Make a compliment or honor someone
– That’s really easy and something we should do more often as it put a smile on faces. Just think about yourself, we all like to hear compliments.


2. Consciously breathing
– Interesting as it makes you aware of purity again. I did it as part of a guided meditation and it’s astonishing how breath techniques can help to relax and calm down. I can recommend to give it a try.


3. A lazy day in bed from morning to evening without TV, Radio or Internet
– Here I failed up to now. As long as I haven’t muted my phone and iPad I’m too curious if it’s beeping, checking Facebook, emails…something to put also on my list to work on.


4. Getting rid of ballast – an old radio or cleaning up the cellar
– I cleaned up my wardrobe, each piece which I didn’t touch during the last 3 months was put out. What I did then is selling all on eBay and the nice side effect was that I got so much for all these clothes that I was able to buy me the iPad where I was too stingy before as its just another toy. But with this extra money I made myself a gift.


5. Cook your favorite food just for yourself and enjoy
– In my opinion a stupid one. I never cook something for myself which I don’t like, so this is daily routine.


6. Build something with your own hands
– Thanks to my neighbor I really did it a few weeks ago. I thought this will not happen and I could never check this task but one of our neighbors children turned six and we built a small theater out of everything we found, painted it colorful and put little dolls and sweets in as birthday surprise. I felt like back in kindergarten but it was really funny when you finally look at the result, even if I still think children can do it much better than adults. They have more fantasy than almost all adults nowadays.


7. Dive into the idyllic world of childhood (watch movies you loved as child, read children’s books)
– Perfect relaxation for me, I think this depends on how your childhood has been. I took one of my favorite books I read as child and it was like a flashback to the age of six or seven where you were free of problems and where your parents gave you good night hugs and kisses and checked if the blanket is covering you before you sleep tight. I recommend this one for a rainy Sunday afternoon.


8. Travel the world (all continents)
– I stepped on two continents so far…if I win the lottery one day I will let you know if I like this task or not.


9. Go consciously into nature – sense details (flower, grass, insects)
– Just stroll around and breath the smell of trees and flowers, watch ants carrying leaves six times bigger than themselves, it’s a bit like a meditation. You are just watching and breathing and not thinking, makes the mind free.


10. Not to buy new clothes for the next six months
– I’m pretty sure it was written for men. They will succeed easily but I am a woman! No way, even if I would try it I would fail, that’s 100% sure. Do you think I can walk by a shop if I see something nice which isn’t yet in my wardrobe but soooo cute and the colour is matching and it’s on sale and and and? Even if I stay at home for six months, there are so many newsletters offering us daily new stuff. I have to admit, yes, I am weak in regards to shopping. I can’t resist for such a long time.


11. Admit you made a mistake and say sorry
– That’s not too long ago and something I do whenever needed. I can’t understand people who are not able to say sorry. We are all humans and humans make mistakes, no one is free from it as no one is perfect and always right. So why should I bother myself with negative thoughts longer than needed? If I realize I was wrong or mean for sure I admit and say sorry.


12. Travel alone
– I did and you will soon read about it here (that’s how I keep it thrilling, haha).


13. Don’t talk one day
– Is talking to myself counting?


14. Watch an opera
– I listened around seven minutes to one where I don’t even know the title. Sorry, but this kind of music is nothing for my ears. Call me low-brow, I can live without. (But for sure only my opinion!)


15. Afford a cleaning woman/man for your home
– As long as I’m living on fifty five square meters I do it myself. This is another pair of shoes which is more important for me than someone doing the cleaning for me. If I move into a palace I will over think this item.

Bye for now, hope you enjoyed it a bit.
