I AM. Such powerful two words. I think it is hard to forget, that we ourselves are in control of our own thoughts, our own actions, our own feelings and responses in life. Sure, there might be external influences, and we might let our mind be stirred by them, influenced by other people, other perceptions, society's unwritten patterns and by the ways we are "supposed to live".

But let me tell you, the most important person in your life is you. And you have full control of how you want to live and who you want to be. No one can take your time from you, your creativity, your happiness, your ideas, your thoughts, your feelings, your emotions or your love. All these make up who you are. How much do you allow yourself to be you, to be the you that is pure, honest and unique?

You might think, of course I am me, of course I know who I am. But think again. Who's opinions do you value, who's behaviour do you copy, who's ambition do you look up to, who's career would you like to have, who's success story would you like to live, who would you like to look like, or be like?

We are all impacted by the people around us, the people we grew up with and the people that are present in our lives right now. It is not easy to break patterns of thought, to find true happiness within us, without needing to buy that new gadget, handbag or car. Without needing the confirmation of others and without needing to prove ourselves to others in the way we think they appreciate us.

The opportunities are plenty, but learning about yourself first, is the first and most important step. Learning about your own desires, your own beliefs, your own patterns of thought - and then to find happiness that cannot be broken by anyone that has been, is or will be in your life.

It is scientifically proven that affirmations are a method for self-improvement. By practicing and regularly focusing consciously on positive thought we rewire our brain. Already in 1988, my birth year, Claude Steele a well-known social psychology professor from Stanford university, published his researches about self-affirmation process.

As human beings we need to value our integrity. Being honest with ourselves and representing our own moral principles is something that we can easily forget, when we get caught up in daily life, other people's beliefs, and external demands. Let's say you have a moral principle of never wanting to shout at your children. Because you have too many demands from your work though, you feel stressed and your parents have raised to work as hard as possible in order to provide the best for your family, you sometimes loose your patience with your children, you snap and shout. your moral principle is threatened and compromised.

It can feel frustrating when we get to the point where we realize that we did not act according to our own principles.

In order to re-charge ourselves, to balance our emotions and to find back to our true self, affirmations can come in to help. Through daily affirmations we are able to restore our self-conceptions. We are strengthening our self-regard through regular explanatory statements of positive qualities that we would like to find ourselves in.

You can think of affirmation as declaring the truth about something. By consciously speaking, writing or thinking an affirmation you are telling you body and mind that this is a fact. When you commit to repeating your affirmations on a regular basis, you are assuring yourself that what you are saying is a fact, you are making it your new reality and you are thereby creating a belief. Affirmations can be used to transform old beliefs into new ones. To form new patterns in the way you think.

Welcome beautiful. I'm glad you made it here!

My story.

I am a mother of 2, a wife of a loving husband and a citizen in Germany and Sweden.

I had a good life as a kid. I spent lots of time in our local music school in Germany, had friends, went through different teenager phases, learned to ride the unicycle, did well at school and ate a mainly plant based diet.

When I was 16 I spent one year in the US, Michigan. It was a wonderful and eye opening year, a year of life changing experiences. With 20 I had graduated and decided to move to Sweden. With little financial support I started working as an Aupair, learning the Swedish language, culture and the country’s characteristics. What came next? I always wanted to work as a pre-school teacher, but listening to my surroundings, friends and family it wasn’t the “best option” recommended. So what did I do? I studied Business Administration.

Not a bad choice, but not the most fitting for me either. I managed though. I finished my Bachelor, made amazing friends and met my husband. Together we travelled different parts of the world, formed our life together.

I started a pre-school teacher education after all, because I still wished to work with children, making an impact on future generations. It led me to work at an International School and - in parallel - at a local music school as a violin teacher - and WOW how much I learned during this time. One of the most rewarding times in my life.

During that time our daughter was born. A new light, a new star. While working at the school I also started my first company, an organic children clothing retailer. I loved it and I put much effort and time into it - but I didn’t find the time to fully commit to it, juggling life between my daugther, the school jobs and the business. What happened next? My son was born and my desire to be the best self for my husband and children grew. I suddenly felt surrounded by children from wake-up to night and I could not calm my curiosity of how it would be to work in the corporate world. Would I find the balance I was looking for? So I did. I got a job at a large, global organisation. More valuable experiences, more friends, more eye-opening events.

More juggle between being a mum, a wife, keeping a healthy lifestyle and looking out for myself. All through this time of shaping my adult life, I knew deep at heart I was an ENTREPRENEUR and I would one day become self-employed again. I needed to do my own “thing”. When was ONE DAY though? The universe has led me here. The right time and space has come and I am more than happy to help parents all around the world finding their path into the life they were meant to live. There is a moment for everyone and from that moment on, your life will make more sense. It will be a happier, more conscious life, the one you had before only dreamt about.
