It came down to a point where I had to ask myself — do I see myself doing the same thing until the rest of my life or do I believe there is something more?
Mind you, I was doing what I loved, I had friends and family, a beautiful apartment in the city center and I was happy. The thing is, settling isn’t really my thing. I am a free spirit and want to live my life to the fullest. I was ready to take a leap of faith and dive into the unknown.
At that point I still…

I’ve been working on myself for years now and trying to figure out the origin of my limiting beliefs. Through this process, I learned that most of our beliefs come from our family, teachers, and society. I started observing what people in my family said and noticed a lot of limiting beliefs they kept affirming.
I think it is safe to say that what is happening with social media these days has gone out of hand — people posting about their perfect lives, canceling each other when we disagree, or sharing their most vulnerable moments.
Ever since I got into coaching, I kept hearing — be authentic, share your story, be real. We have been oversaturated with seemingly perfect glimpses of people’s lives, which set the bar high of how we should be living.
Let’s face it — life sucks sometimes, but we don’t share those moments.
To honor that we have created the opposite…
It was 2012 and the end of the world was nearing. I had decided to make some changes in my life, so I broke up with my toxic boyfriend, kicked out my lazy-ass roommate, quit smoking, and started meditating.
I had awakened spiritually in my teens, but instead of pursuing that path, I chose to party instead. Even though I knew it wasn’t good for me I wanted to live life to the fullest. So I did. For years.
Let me get this straight — I am actually an introverted digital nomad who loves staying at home. Still, not having a choice has left me very anxious and overwhelmed. I had to find ways to keep my sanity, in addition to my spiritual practices. Here is what I came up with.
During the first lockdown, I ordered a ukulele. Yes, I know it wasn’t “essential,” but honestly, it was for my mental health. I’ve always wanted to learn the ukulele, and I figured it would come in handy as it’s a small instrument you can take anywhere.
Honestly, I feel like I’ve had several lifetimes within this life! As an avid learner with a curious mind, I strive to learn every day. I learn through life experiences, heartbreaks, human relations, breakdowns, exploring other cultures on my travels, spiritual awakenings, and from my wonderful teachers that appeared when I was ready.
Recently I went through a “middle-age crisis” and I figured since I have lived a full life I might as well share the wisdom I accumulated over the years. …
I’ve always been an active girl — I’ve been a dancer for 15 years, I skied, did Yoga, Capoeira, Kick-Boxing, I hiked…I was no stranger to sports, yet never needed to watch my diet. I wasn’t skinny but was able to maintain a good medium-sized weight I was comfortable with.
However, life happened, and stress got in the way. I stopped working out for a while, ate what I wanted, and as I aged, I noticed the weight was harder to shed.
When I entered my 30s, I noticed this change in my body, and sadly it got worse as…
“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
― Bob Marley
Music has been a part of my life for a really long time. My mom was a sound engineer at the national radio station, so I grew up in studios listening to various artists. Considering that lead to my singing career it is safe to say it made a huge impact on my life.
Whenever life gets me down, music lifts me up. It’s amazing how something so simple can make a difference in your mood.
Music can influence our mood on an emotional…
Several years ago, I started my coaching practice and decided to get trained to be a Life Purpose Coach. I realized I had been helping people discover their life purpose “unofficially” for years, so I figured I might as well get certified.
The thing is, I have been living my purpose for most of my life, and I couldn’t imagine it any other way. I wish more people would live that way, as it truly makes a difference. Knowing why you’re here on Earth is life-changing! …
It’s not easy to be constantly inspired, so I have developed these three methods to help me stay on track and get my writing done with ease.
When I moved to Paris I discovered Meetup. It’s a website and an app where you can find events related to your interests. What I love about it is that you can connect with people who are interested in the same topics and meet in person.
Last year I decided to get organized and make sure I dedicated time for my writing, so I joined a writers meetup group called “Ready, Set, Write”…
