Ignore What People Say and Follow Your Heart

Why You Should Ignore What Everyone Says and Follow Your Heart

Does any of this sound familiar to you? It’s a new day, but you don’t feel like getting out of bed. Not because you’re still sleepy, but ‘cause you don’t have much to look forward to. You already know how your day is going to go – after all, you’ve been following the same routine for months, if not years. The predictability that comes with the sound of your alarm is draining and boring. And yet, deep down, you know that there’s something you’ve been dreaming of doing, something which could change your mornings from mundane to exciting. The problem is, you’ve compromised this dream for the sake of the opinions of others. You basically let what other people think of your life choices get in the way of your passion. I think it’s safe to say that by the time we’re in our mid 20s and 30s we already know ourselves well enough to have an idea of what makes us happy. I don’t mean the kind of happiness that comes with owning a lot of material possessions …

Five Things to Remember in the New Year

Don’t Make New Year’s Resolutions You’ll most likely forget about them by the end of January. Instead, commit yourself to ONE important goal which you truly believe will improve your life. Whether it’s travelling more, being more optimistic or concentrating on your self-development, make sure to stick to it, and see how your life changes for the better. Remember That You Can be Whoever You Want to Be You’re the one in charge of your life – if there’s something you want to achieve, the only person who can stop you is you. It may sound obvious, but it’s not. How many times have you let the opinion of others discourage you and get in the way of your dreams?  How many times have you blamed others for your shortcomings? Believe in yourself, even if you feel that no one else does. Take control of your life. Your inner strength and the belief in your vision will get you through any difficulties and help you achieve your goals. I won’t always be easy, but it will be worth it in the end! …

Why Every Woman Should Travel Solo

Have you been wanting to travel solo but keep coming up with excuses not to? It’s not an exaggeration to say that solo travel is one of the most incredible, life-changing experiences, and it would be a great shame to let it slip without even trying. With the New Year coming up, you couldn’t ask for a better time to  make a few changes in your life and try something new. Here’s why I think every woman should travel solo and how solo travel can help you become a stronger, more self-assured and loving person. Redesign Yourself Arriving at a new place where no one knows you, where you’re free from the influence of your friends, your family’s expectations and your usual day-to-day schedule, gives you the perfect chance to truly concentrate on yourself. Sometimes we lose ourselves, living the life we never really wanted just because someone, somewhere along the way told us that it would be good for us. Ask yourself: what is it that you really want? What would you do if you didn’t …
