There wasn’t going to be a part two, but after nostalgically going through my “Latvia” folder on my computer, I felt it was an injustice to some of the photographs that I did not yet upload. And so, there is a part two.
Old Town – Riga. It looks like a set to a movie or something…
In October of 2010 I went to my first Breakdancing (also known as b-boying) class. I have been practicing for just over a year, and still pretty much suck, but it doesn’t matter because I am not shy about dancing anymore and that means a lot to me. It is a hobby I want to keep up, because, as Konstantin once told me “Just keep at it. Don’t give up. If you keep doing something, and practicing something over and over again, after some time, something good just has to come out of you.”
This is Cape Town, through my eyes.
First and foremost, I would like to thank you all for giving me the honor of being Freshly Pressed for the 4th time in 9 months. The lucky post was How to start your day like a rockstar and believe me, waking up to an inbox full of blog comments, likes and subscriptions definitely made my morning routine that much more rock-star-ish.
To my new followers, I recently returned from a 2 week vacation in South Africa (and a couple of neighbouring countries). Here are some of the photographs from my time in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I can’t believe it is December in just 2 days.
This was my November. How was your November?….
This is a post I’ve been meaning to publish for a long time as it is a personal one for me. It’s something I am putting my focus on at this point in my life. It’s all about developing a strong sense of self. When I think of a strong sense of self, I think of emotional maturity. I see it as a strong beam of light from within me – instead of a flickering flame. Over the course of a few posts I will explore 10 truths of having and maintaining a strong sense of self. In this post I want to describe each one briefly, and in the following ones I will go into some other ones in depth with specific things we can do to achieve them! Wow, haven’t I got so much fun lined up for you
What we need to develop is a strong sense of self. A powerful inner strength that resounds from somewhere deep within you.
You have a strong sense of self when:
No, I don’t feel that your project matches my interests/values/skills.
It was a shock to me when I realized that my boyfriend doesn’t need me.
From childhood we are inundated with the concept of what princess-like “true love” should be like. It is passionate, unparalleled and pure. You are supposed to NEED eachother. It is meant to be the “I can’t live if living is without you” Mariah Carey kind of love.
That’s love, right? You’re supposed to need your man or your woman. They complete you. Without them, you are incomplete, only a half of yourself, and you also kind of suck.
Well it wasn’t long till I realized that my boyfriend doesn’t actually need me….
