Typical situation: You are sitting somewhere, let’s say in a café and somebody new is coming in. Regardless of whether that person talks to you or not, immediately you are judging her.
Your brain scans her appearance, behavior, the way she talks and within seconds you decide if you like her or not.
Who doesn’t know the Queen of all feelings?
Guilt is a topic we are all confronted with, most of us daily. It is especially a hot topic now, New Year has just begun and we made many new resolutions.
Did you too?
Nothing wrong with that but feeling guilty is unnecessary. So how to deal with this tricky feeling?
I want to give you a little example out of my own life:
“You bring meaning to my life”. „Without you my life is only half as beautiful.” „You complete me“. All sentences that sound quite romantic, don’t they?
You have probably already heard them in movies or in your own life. It is the moment you catch yourself sighing … mmmmhhh “love” is so sweet, isn’t it?
But are those sentences really what you want to hear in your relationships?
Looking at it more closely brings the following thoughts to my mind:
Gabriel and I are reading a book. It is called “A Course In Miracles”. Have you heard of it? One sentence in this book says: “Miracles are supposed to happen.” Miracles are normal. They are everywhere and always.
When I reflect on our life and especially on the past months I can see miracles all around. The flight tickets that aligned. The accommodations we found. The people we met. The help we received. The conversations we shared. The inspirations we got. So many miracles.
So, why do you sometimes notice miracles everywhere and sometimes it seems as if they were on vacation?
Let’s talk about love. Gabriel and I have experienced many challenges in our relationship throughout the years which we want to share with you little by little on our blog. We deeply feel that each challenge holds tremendous potential for growth – both individually and as a couple – and we all can learn so much from each other.
Something that really made our relationship change was the Moment we chose we want to “love with an open hand”.
Gabe and I are discussing a lot about freedom since we started our new journey. During our time living in the United States, we had seen many signs talking about “Defending Our Freedom”. But does true freedom really have to be defended? Is this not a paradox in itself?
You can debate this topic over and over – reflecting it from many different angles – but today we want to remind you about something you already know deep down inside:
