I’m 41 years old and it might sound strange, but only about two years ago (2013) my life actually started. Maybe you can relate to the feeling that something is holding you back in life, but you have no idea what?
On the surface everything looked fine: I’m smart, think I’m good looking ;), had a great career, nice friends & family, went on far away holidays and also money was not an issue, but somehow I was not feeling happy.
I did try all kinds of things to discover what it was and ‘to improve myself’. I followed two NLP courses, followed personal effectiveness courses at work, travelled through Indonesia for a month to find myself, joined a guru, did yoga, meditation, sang ma
ntras, read various self help books, but there was nothing that helped me to feel more happy.
I did struggle with relationships and jobs. But I thought it was just one of these things in life that didn’t go that well, but everybody has ‘things’ going on in life.
Well, what was specifically going on two years ago? After numerous bad relationships, I was feeling very unhappy again due to another bad relationship. But I couldn’t end it, didn’t want to go on with it and didn’t want to jump again into another relationship, because I knew it would make me unhappy again. I was feeling so depressed that I questioned the meaning of life and thought I’d be better off not being there at all… I came across a book, searched professional help, learnt how to live, and from there everything changed for the better.
I think it’s not a coincidence that you’re reading my blog. If you can’t relate to anything of the above, then I say goodbye and wish you all the best! But if you do, then take my hand and let me guide you through my journey that is called life.
This blog reflects only my personal experiences, feelings and insights and is in no way meant to convince you or pretend that it’s the truth. It’s meant to find recognition and hopefully inspires you to make good and healthy choices for yourself and live a life with connection, compassion and courage.
Namaste! (The soul in me, greets the soul in you!)
