Does Instagram Make You Feel Like a Loser?

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

If your answer is yes, then you should take an Instagram break and listen to an episode from Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations with Devon Franklin. I am going to be honest, in the last few months, I have felt anger and disappointment towards social media.

Why?

Because every time I was on Instagram, I felt like a loser. Seeing other people’s perfect lives and polished photos made me feel inferior. One day, though, I looked at the whole “issue” differently – are those people happy? Is their marriage working? And more importantly, I asked myself why I kept following people that made me feel so bad.

P.S. just finished listening to an Oprah’s @supersoul Conversations with @devonfranklin 🌈🌈🌈 what an inspiring and 🔥 man - like seriously?! I wish I was so enlightened when I was his age.

Happy Monday! I asked one gentleman to take a photo of us in the @cjb_geneve yesterday (Alex was still away) and looking at Missy’s expression, I can’t wait but think of Wednesday Addams 😆 #mondayfeels #skechers #twinningskechers #ppr_ch

The older I get, the more I resemble to my mom: when I lived in Prague, we used to go to museums every Sunday. You may think that Chloe-Sofia is too young but I believe that it can only benefit her. •
If you think the same and live in Geneva, you should visit temporary exhibition “The Fairy Tale Factory” / “La fabrique des contes” at @meg.geneve (Museum of Ethnography in Geneva). It’s interactive, educational and fun, and you can take printed fairy tales home with you. Chloe-Sofia loved the rooms dedicated to “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Fisherman, His Wife and the Golden Fish” - the latter so much that I had to read it to her before she fell asleep. 🐡 •
The exposition takes places until 5 January 2019 and just between us - they have soy cappuccinos at their coffee place! 📷 @helenasendula

The last two weeks were challenging: traveling, working since Sunday for the whole week at our work event, dealing with Chloe-Sofia’s evening and morning tantrums, editing the video that I shot in London, trying to read to Chloe-Sofia in the evenings (and falling asleep)...

I feel exhausted but strangely, I also hear this voice inside me that’s saying that I’m not doing enough, I’m not good enough as a mother and wife, and that I should still manage to exercise daily. Does it sound crazy or familiar? •
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re telling yourself the same, please, give yourself a break. We tend to be so hard on ourselves as women, no matter whether you have children or not, self-employed, stay-at-home mom or working for someone. We don’t need to be Supermoms. A mom who does her best and with a good intention is already great. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Find five minutes just for yourself (and I hear you- it sounds like a lot if you have a toddler who’s following your every step). Take a break, watch your breath, clear your mind, and find at least three things that you can appreciate about yourself today. ❤️ What would those be? #momlife

Thank God for Friday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀...

My favorite quote. I keep it at work, under my computer screen so that I’m constantly reminded that it’s my mind that shapes my reality, not the other way. #inspiringquotes

I am very busy at work this week and keep reminding myself that instead of complaining, I need to focus on being grateful for having a job that (if you honestly look at it) pays well, I have great colleagues and allows me to work on my dream after working hours. •
And a big shout out to @alexanderramp for taking care of Chloe-Sofia and cooking. Truly the best husband ever!!! #lovemyhubby

Precious (and rare) moments with a girlfriend without kids. The older (and wiser) I get, the more I appreciate female friendships.
I believe that it’s important to choose your girlfriends wisely and learn to accept when it’s over. It’s the quality that counts, not the quantity. #girlfriendsbelike

Why I Am Not Enlightened Yet And Don’t Give A Damm

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

I admit that I am the perfect example of how we misunderstood the meaning of spiritual practice and life itself. I started practicing meditation when I was ten and grew up expecting that if I practice regularly, I will reach enlightenment by the age of forty.

A few months back I had a breakdown. I cried on my friend’s shoulder that I have not reached enlightenment. I was forty and felt like a loser. What I realized several months later, was that enlightenment was not a competitive sport.

Is This The Perfect Denim Skirt For Spring?

CATEGORY: FASHION

Why do I believe that a denim skirt is perfect for this spring? Because it’s practical, easy to wear and depending on the way you dress it up, you can wear it both on Casual Friday or over the weekend.

I found this denim skirt in my favorite consignment store in Geneva and decided to challenge myself and look for similar denim skirts in the same price category. This one is from See By Chloé, and I got it for a fraction of its original price.

Why Should You Listen To Your Intuition Especially If You’re Creative

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

At first, I wanted to call this “Why You Should Not Listen To The Wolves,” but it felt too stiff. What I noticed lately, is that the more I become self-aware and listen to my intuition, the more I attract people who keep telling me how to grow, build a business, and become successful.
