“Society puts quite a high pressure on women: you MUST build a rewarding career, you MUST be a good mom, you MUST be a good wife …
Because of this high pressure and the overall feeling I had to be perfect in everything at one point I just crashed…
The question that is currently playing mainly through my mind is, “Is this it? Is this what I want the rest of my life or do I have to make some changes?
Struggling with a Burn Out I had to go and find things that gave me back my energy. One of those things was “healthy food”. I learned it was not only soothing for the mind, but it also had an other positive effect: weight loss. I did not only lose some extra pounds put I regained some confidence. For the first time in forever I felt like a woman again.
By starting with this blog I want to inspire other women. For a long time I wanted to break out of my shell and do something like this, but I always felt scared. Not any more! This blog will be the beginning of me actually following my dreams.
You should start too! You can come hear for ideas, mental support, maybe hopefully some energy of your own!”

“I sometimes feel like I’ve been searching all my life for what it is that would make me really happy. I’m what you call the ‘dreaming type’. My head is filled up with the wildest ideas but as soon as I want to put them in action I start thinking: “What are you doing? You’ll never succeed. You better quit now then be sorry later”. That being thought I put my ideas away in the back of my head. And over the years that had of mine bulges with ideas that never really made it into real life. So sad really…
Due to a private event 7 years ago I got a severe depression. For a while there I did not think I would still be here, years later.
I took control of it luckily, but it is never really gone. Like a beast in hibernation it can wake up from time to time. When it does I have to be alert and take action. I have to soothe it back to sleep before in takes over.
For me, this blog means two things. First of all it is a big step in the direction I want to go in in life. I want to do something that gives me energy, it’s my creative outlet I need so badly. Second I want to let other people know they are not alone with there bad thoughts. But it is a good thing to find something for yourself that makes you happy. You owe it to yourself actually.
I hope you can all find an outlet here. And that reading this blog will be a beginning for all of you to go and fulfill your own dreams. In a way this blog is meant to celebrate. It’s closing time for all those recycling centers in our heads. You know, the ones who are filled with our dreams… It’s about time we start making shit happen! Let us drink to that!*cincin*
