Take happy little breaks from your creativity.


Take happy little breaks from your creativity.

They always start with peace of mind.

And help you to enhance your constructive and critical thinking skills to lead you right back to your inner house of creativity and inspiration.

Take initiative. Give away control at times.

We can’t control external forces or circumstances that coming over us. But what we can do is to set up our inner & outer response, how to approach these situations. We tend to feel like victims of certain circumstances but we are not.

It’s our mindset limiting us, feeling trapped as perpetrator and victim rolled into one. We just have given away our power and need to reclaim it. A sail without wind is just a piece of useful fabric waiting for its purpose to come alive.

“Give away control and you will have it.” – Alan Watts

Never depend on the opinion and mood of others but listen to your inner guidance instead.

Be your own very best friend powered by dignity and respect. Always keep yourself in high regard by knowing your values built on solid self-esteem and inner faith.

“The more we value things outside of our control, the less control we have.” – Marcus Aurelius

You are a power plant even you don’t feel so and behave powerless at times. That’s okay and not an unusual behavior pattern.

It’s more like an inner voice nagging on your self-esteem and self-conviction when you aren’t sure and still need time to grow. To find the right answer and response to that little bothering voice seemingly coming out of the blue of your endless and unlimited mind. Always be eager to challenging your mental health and inner balance in realizing the deeper meaning of situations popping up along the road.


“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking that they don’t have any.” — Alice Walker


Crisis reveals character. And lack of commitment and trust. A good time person, a sunshine friend reveals him/herself in time. Trust and learn to listen to the signs. When it comes down to emphatic, responsible signs but there’s no commitment at all, just empty words and hot air why not committing.


Establish healthy boundaries in time to avoid misunderstandings and misguided approaches based on miscommunication, misinformation, and unhealthy mind-behavior patterns. It’s easier to build a fence than to break down a wall.

Trust is built on openness and honesty when sharing hidden insights and failures openly.

Speak up & out when you think something is wrong or feel treated disrespectfully like a plain number and that’s nagging on and keeping your mind unhealthy occupied. Clearly and unmistakable. And then forgive yourself and others.

It will help you to grow your self-confidence and taking care, prioritizing your self-awareness as a human who’s the master of his/her mind, words, and deeds.

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius

This should come along and a well-deserved time before serving and pleasing others. This is the authentic foundation to all faithful interactions and genuine commitment, valuable communication, and deeds that make sense.

“You have more power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius

Don’t take any s*** hard to take of others or situations and then swallow it like a poised frog due to you’re feeling disrespectful treated under the waistline and closer to tears than to a missed victory.

And then even feel worse by having undermined yourself. Spit the frog out by speaking true and real stuff that matters but not by sugarcoating pleasers to avoid healthy and necessary conflicts, called “air fresheners” we all need from time to time.

To clear up the air, to let fresh in, to be inspired without burdening thoughts that block creativity and the human spirit.

“The things you think about determine the quality of your mind. Your soul takes on the color of your thoughts.” – Marcus Aurelius

And avoid hiding your opinion and state of mind & soul in mentally unhealthy, filthy places.

Never wait till someone permits you to speak out about what’s on your burning agenda at present. This is waiting in vain with no outcome but losing time, getting old and grumpy instead by having missed the train.

“Regardless of what may be going on around you, you choose what to tell yourself about what’s happening, and that determines how you feel.” – Marcus Aurelius

A proper traffic light got three signs. Red, orange, and green. You start on orange and take off on green lights. Mind the red light, take consequence but never procrastinate to push yourself in an orange and green mode of mind.

Give your choice a name. You and no one else is in charge, stick this on your forehead, and go for. Whatever it takes. You’re the captain of your life and no one else is to encourage or to blame in the first case but yourself.

Listen! Always listen to your gut feeling and follow up. And reclaim your power like an engine needs fuel and oil firstly. To telling you the truth ahead before your mind kicks in to help you see clearly.

“The most despicable form of cowardice is self-pity.” – Marcus Aurelius

Your intuition is your most powerful and authentic map telling you the right direction to go. Or to stop and to rethink. It’s a silent inner voice not to be overheard or neglected. To pay a high price for not listening in ignorant absence of thinking twice but waiting till circumstances are perfectly right. They’re hardly ever. It’s more like we catch up with, start and make the best out of them by adjusting to reach the best possible outcome for everyone involved.

No one said we have to be perfect. It’s better being unique than perfect!  

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” – Marcus Aurelius

We succeed and learn the most precious and insightful lessons by all the mistakes popping up along the way of personal development.  They’re like little unanswered questions we need to find the appropriate answers to. The exact keys fitting in a keyhole of asking the right questions and implementing their outcome in the process.

The one who didn’t, doesn’t make mistakes never has worked hard and consequent enough to finally reach high goals and the personal summit crosses to conquer. Take happy little breaks from your creativity and getting back all your inspiration though.
