Once upon a time, there was a girl with big dreams and a wildly creative drive. She wanted to change the world and live a life less ordinary. It was obvious to the clouds and the stars, both of them watching over her, that she was a creative soul. She knew it too. She felt it in every fiber of her body. But the world around her told her lies about limitations. Told her she was too loud, too much, too crazy. Told her to play small and not out-shine anyone. So the girl became chronically depressed. Overwhelming feelings of unhappiness drowned her desire to create and her will to live. The clouds and the stars could no longer see the girl. A dark fog was all there was left.
But one day the girl, who no longer was a girl, decided to stop listening to the depressing thoughts. To stop listening to fear. Stop listening to trolls and haters. She decided to live a spectacular and divine life on her own terms. She made it her mission to nourish her soul and to make joy her reality. Purpose is what matters and passion is the fire that lights the way. Now she walks to the beat of her own drum, following a path that moves her, guided by her heart and the stars. Her path is meaningful to her and that is reason enough. Happy beautiful day lovelies 😘💗

Life with Conrad an Bowie is never boring... Yesterday they had a party chewing on my dad's living room carpet... a few weeks ago they ate parts of my beloved blue velvet couch🤔😳 But... they melt my heart a million times a day, making me laugh like never before, filling me up with love and attention ☺️ They are my little hugging-kissing-bears whom I love to the moon and back❤️🙏🏻 Happy weekend lovelies 😘

One of the biggest causes of creative dry spell is the need to “get it right.” We strive for perfection and when we fall short, we feel less than and worthless. What we don’t seem to realize is that CREATING
something and being WILLING to put ourselves out there is an accomplishment in itself, regardless of how many times we "don´t get it right". Instead of berating yourself for messing up and stumbling backward, give yourself a warm-hearted pat on the back for trying, for making progress, and coming as far as you have.

NEVER let a set-back stop you from doing what you love. Never let the lack of applause keep you from creating. You don´t need to be the best to succeed. You don´t need to get it perfect all the time. And you
certainly don´t need a ton of followers to approve of your talent.

The moment you realize that being kind, loving and supportive to YOU - everything changes. Your creativity will blossom and life becomes much less painful. Self-love is an on-going journey, therefore make self-care and kindness a daily practice, a beautiful ritual in which you HONOR you, your passion and every little progress you make ❤️😘

I love walking in the dunes 🌾That's where I find my peace, calm my mind and empty all worries. The dunes reminds me of freedom, empowerment and vulnerability all at the same time. The dunes are my meditation. It's where I slow down and find my inspiration🙏🏻🌾Happy Sunday Lovelies😘

Remember that life is not about justifying yourself – it’s about creating yourself. Your life is yours to live as you desire. Others can judge you and try to persuade you to their point of view, but they can’t decide anything for you. They can walk with you if they choose, but not in your shoes. So make sure the path you decide to walk aligns with your own intuition and best judgment, and don’t be scared to walk alone and pave your own path when doing so feels right under your feet. Happy weekend lovelies😘

When things aren’t adding up in your life, begin subtracting. Life gets a lot simpler when you clear the clutter that makes it complicated. Happy beautiful day lovelies😘 #slowdownwithstills

Listen to your heart, and only your heart. Not the voices of friends, family, strangers, magazines, tv….not the critical voice inside your own head. Listen to your heart!

Your heart is the foundation of your wisdom; love is intelligent; and knows the truth of things.
The Heart can see further than the eyes. It can see the truth behind appearances. It knows what you should do in each and every situation you find yourself in.

When you trust your heart, you find your true power!

It’s living your own true values that determines your level of personal success in the long run, not the number of people who agree with every little thing you do.
Ultimately, you will know that you’ve made the right decisions and followed the proper path when there is genuine peace in your heart😘 #slowdownwithstills

As much as I love planning and goal setting, if there's one thing I've learned from many years of being my own boss it's this; Don’t jam your life with plans. Leave space. Over time you will learn that many great things happen unplanned, and some big regrets happen by not reaching exactly what was planned. So keep your life ordered and your schedule under-booked. Create a foundation with a soft place to land, a wide margin of error, and room to think and breathe every step of the way. Happy beautiful Tuesday lovelies 😘 #slowdownwithstills
