The world I believe in is one where embracing your light doesn't mean ignoring your darkness. True strength doesn't mean never showing any weakness. We are human. And we feel. And that's okay ๐Ÿ‘ There is a new post up on my blog (link in bio), deep and messy, telling you a bit more of what I experienced last winter, including emotional eating struggles, my thoughts on connection and isolation and the stigma around mental health.
Thank you for letting me share my journey with you. I love you guys ๐Ÿ’‹

Today I'm grateful for my first butternut squash this year, yep it's a bit early for starting the pumpkin season but I found one at the organic store the other day that was super cheap so why not?
I'm grateful for an amaaaaazing opportunity I was offered and just saying yes. Still can't really believe it but so damn excited to take you guys along ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ I'm grateful for hope rising within me, hope to lead a somewhat normal life, hope to be able to truly connect with someone, let people close again. And one day build a family โ™ฅ๏ธ .

Creamy oatmeal topped with sooo much goodness: frozen cherries and wild blueberries (that are so much more nutritious than the cultivated ones), peach & banana slices, ground flax, soaked mixed seeds (hemp, sunflower, pumpkin, chia & sesame) and mulberry pieces (from this month's @wholefoodbox) ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ Mulberries are definitely one of my favorite additions to porridge or mueslis. They taste just like honey caramel bites ๐Ÿ‘… I was asked how I get my oatmeal this creamy: at the moment I prefer using fine cut oats and I cook them extra long, like 20 mins. I love all the different textures ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ Soaking the seeds makes them more easily digestible and increases their nutritional value. I usually just added soaked chia and hemp but inspired by @lonijane I also soak the pumpkin and sunflower seeds - SO YUM! โ™ฅ๏ธ Honestly a bowl of this is so satisfying and delicious - while providing the body with so many antioxidants, minerals and vitamins โœจ .

Spread to thin, running on empty, tears whenever I let them, home to a billion emotions, raging storms, yet so much faith. Too tired to focus but to wired when I lay. Skipping heart beats just to fall in silence, blowing kisses into night skies, sharing my darkest ones just with the moon ๐ŸŒš Memories of dawns spend dancing in the rain, losing myself over and over just to shed layers of who we were. At the crossroads. Daring to dream, envisioning beauty and hands and lips, real and honest and pure. Surrender and motion, giving birth to a new me. In between melancholy and crave I find beauty in this very moment... Raw. Open. Here. Breathing. No fear, just love. And I'm grateful to feel. To go through seasons and intense tides. I love the oceans waving in my bloodstream, drowning at times and finding ground when I trust.

Some time ago I posted a text about self image and body positivity to my story and it shocked me how many messages I received in response to that. After struggling with accepting myself, being incredibly self conscious and harming my body in numerous ways for years it really hit me how many of you are having trouble with feeling home in their own skin. Being bombarded with mixed messages and ultra edited images about how we should look like, what's beautiful / sexy and what should be altered or hidden it's only natural to start doubting the way we look and struggle to become friends with what we see in the mirror. But truth is: the beauty-, food- and fitness industries are making money off our insecurities! While I do think it's important to eat right and exercise in a healthy way I learned myself how powerful our thoughts are. Negative beliefs not only destroy our self confidence but actually manifest inside our bodies and literally make us sick! ๐Ÿšจ While there might be some lucky ones out there who just feel pretty and confident 24/7, for me it's a conscious choice I have to make over and over again. A choice to feel love for my body, to accept it unconditionally with breakouts and cellulite and to see the masterpiece of nature it actually is. It allows me to experience life with all the senses, I can jump, dance, run, feel, touch and even learn to balance my entire weight on my hands. When you look from that perspective it's absolutely insane to think of certain parts of the human body as a flaw?! And how weird it would be if we all looked the same?! I personally got to a point where I felt completely disconnected from myself and didn't feel feminine / sensual at all - so I know how devastating it can be... Nourishing our cells with living foods can definitely be a first portal of self acceptance and my yoga and meditation practice have been so indescribable healing for me - but we really gotta do the inner work. It can be so powerful to look at ourselves from a mother's perspective. What would you tell your child expressing those thoughts? Be kind to yourself โ™ฅ๏ธ I love you ๐Ÿ’‹ .

Hey beautiful souls! Happy Monday โ™ฅ๏ธ I'm getting sooo many questions about my morning routine so I'm just gonna keep talking about it โœŒ๐Ÿฝ So after meditating first thing when I wake up (at the moment about 20 min - but start small if that feels overwhelming!) I jump in the bathroom, usually with some tunes that I love or even one of the podcasts or audio books I'm currently listening to. I use coconut oil for oil pulling and try to do it for 20 min while I'm dry skin brushing, taking my (cold ๐Ÿ’ฆ) shower, applying body lotion etc. Oil pulling has so many great health benefits and I'm so glad that i finally stick to it. I didn't like it at first but you get used to it! My teeth feel so much cleaner and start to become whiter ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ It can even help to fight headaches, viruses and stomach problems! Oh and dont spit in in the sink when you are done, it could get clogged. // .

Vegan barbecue today: sweet potato & carrot sticks, grilled mushrooms stuffed with vegan cashew / pine cheese, grilled zucchini and mini peppers, avocado with tomato salsa, kombucha and grilled banana with cinnamon for dessert ๐ŸŒ (check my story for more ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ โ™ฅ๏ธ There are soooo many great options!! Choosing a plantbased lifestyle doesn't mean that your meals are gonna be boring or that you are missing out in any way. Far from! There are vegan alternatives for anything I could think of and sooo many cool things you can create with whole plant foods. This barbecue today was just whole plant foods - nothing processed. And it was honestly a taste explosion ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ Plus eating this way just feels SOOO good! I never feel heavy or tired after eating... VEGAN FOR LIFE. For the animals ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ the planet ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ and my health โ™ฅ๏ธ .

Living for micro moments of love. The "I see you - you see me" joy ๐Ÿฆ‹ The bliss of simply being, the coming home within myself and the freedom when I drop into now. .

What if nothing's wrong? What if everything is exactly the way it's supposed to be? What if there's nothing you need to "fix" about yourself? What if you are not a problem to be solved? What if freedom simply lies in the act of not holding yourself up to the image of yourself you created? What if all you need to do is just to stay when you would usually run? Just surrender to the present moment? Just become aware of the here and now? Just show up with an open heart and dropping into experience? Just be conscious of your beingness and understand that you are not your thoughts? What if nothing's wrong? ๐Ÿฆ‹ .

Still obsessed ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰ can't believe I ate maybe 2 or 3 watermelon last summer - that's what I have per week this year, at least! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ .

Here I am, somehow bridging the gap between my normal life and the mental health struggle, riding the good days like waves, trying hard not to crash on the tough ones. Sometimes blank despair creeps up within me, like cold folg in winter nights ๐ŸŒซ taking away my sight and giving me shivers. I am no where near as productive as I wished to be: Recovery is like a full time job at the moment, I can be somewhat stable when I get all the little things right during the day, when I stick to all my routines, do the inner work, take care of my diet and most importantly make sure I get good sleep... It takes a lot of discipline and the constant choice to think positively and keep moving. I'm glad when I can get work done, trying to be okay with the minimum I achieve. One little brick missing can get me stumbling and I need all my strength to catch me before I fall. I'm trying so hard and the fact that I do have good days, sometimes even a few in a row, keeps me going. I'm conquering fears, working on my mindset and sticking to my spiritual practice... But there is a difference between just thinking negatively (therefor attracting more struggle into your life) or feeling unmotivated and the paralyzing cold of depression.
The fact that I talk so openly about my mental health problems let me forget the huge stigma around this topic. People don't know how to deal with it, they have prejudices about those affected and simply don't understand how it is to live with depression or anxiety.
I'm really glad that I can somewhat raise awareness for these issues but I would love to broaden that... Feel free to leave any questions down below โ™ฅ๏ธ .

It's a wrap ๐ŸŽ‰ I had so much fun working with @tzimikas_evangelos for @flaconi.de ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ Now back to Hamburg, so ready to fall into my bed. I hope you all had a fun Friday and are excited for the weekend!! โ™ฅ๏ธ Do you have anything planned? #TGIF I have a super long to do list waiting on my desk, but I'm still gonna make some time for self care and me time ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ•ฏ

For skipped heart beats and deeper breaths, for purple sunset skies and pink lilies, for new beginnings and old memories, the crisp early morning breeze and train conversations, for spreading wings and shedding layers, Vietnamese food and hypnotizing art, for things falling into place and those that don't because it's just not meant to be, for riding waves and the flow of life, days that feel like seconds and those that take forever, for my intuition guiding the way and love gently catching me when I fall. And I'm grateful for the vastness of my sensations, bitter sweet pain and oceans of melancholy, I'm grateful for the joy of simply being, right here, right now, alive, full of dreams and adventures to come โœจ

I'm grateful for all the little things that keep me going and make me feel alive... for every flower shop I pass ๐ŸŒป and those little berry stands in the streets ๐Ÿ“ I'm grateful for the smell of fresh pizza and all those Mediterranean herbs when I walked past my favorite Italian restaurant today ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นI'm grateful for lighting candles for myself and dancing to Spotify playlists in the morning ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽถ (while oil pulling which I hated at first but it's SO effective, honestly I am so glad I finally stick to it ๐Ÿ’Ž). I'm grateful for the close to 2 kilos of apricots I devoured today - I go through phases of food obsessions haha, can anyone relate? But the apricot one might be coming to an end now ๐Ÿ‘ I'm grateful for beautiful memories of brighter times and for daydreams about the future, about the now I'm creating for myself - ridding my mind of old stubborn beliefs about what I deserve and slowly overriding those, being kinder and more gentle with my soul. It's crazy how much we are self sabotaging with certain thought patterns that have been stuck in our heads since early on... ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿผ

I'm grateful for back bends, a sore butt and my plans for tomorrow. Grateful that I can push through the tough days, that I got up today, that I have the senses to experience this beautiful life and more than anything for my faith, my believe in life ๐Ÿฆ‹ .
