Precious coffee break after a very early Saturday rise 🙏. After waking up the body with Yoga and a lovely German group, I take time to sip on a coffee in the gentle sun.
In the background I hear the morning prayer. I observe the people around me. I look at the mosques around. And I wonder.
You might believe in God. You might not believe in God. Maybe you pray sometimes. Maybe you pray daily. But at the end of the day your beliefs don’t make you a better human being. You can pray to God every single day and think you’re good. In reality what makes you a good person is your behavior towards others. Not your beliefs. Be good and do good in this life. Your behavior can change a persons day, even life. Behave bad to others and you’ll soon feel bad inside yourself. Be loving and kind no matter what you believe in.
Support and Be there for the ones who need you, no matter what you believe in. Be love and give love. Life is too short to be a shit person 🙏🌸✨ ... See MoreSee Less

Coffee moments and peace 🙏. After my morning sessions I spent some time chatting with a good friend in Denmark via whatapp whilst having a coffee. I am so grateful for having special friends in my life. You know those friends where things always flow even if you haven’t been in contact for a long time. The moment you talk or meet, it’s just the same great connection and understanding.
And such is life. Some people will stay a life time. They will be next to you in the hard storms. They will love you even if you do shit stuff and have bad days. They listen. They make time. And then there are people who pass through, and those who use you and never really want the best for you. There are the game players who will manipulate you and leave you like you’re garbage on the floor. Without communication. Without explanation. You are dust to them, and you were important only when they needed you and wanted something from you. When you need little help they will turn away. When you need support they’ll ignore you. You are zero to them. They have no compassion. They don’t care if you suffer or cry. You mean nothing to them. They love you one day and the next day they love another. When you ask for help in hard times, they don’t care.
Then there’s the true love. True love from a friend who will always be there no matter how far away you are. Listening. Laughing. Good memories. And there’s true love from a father or a mother or sister or brother. And there’s true love from a partner, husband or wife.
When someone truly loves you, they won’t leave you when things get hard. They will never ignore you. They will speak. They will support. They will stand strong as a rock by your side and show unconditional love. They will fight until the last drop of blood. In moments of hate, fights and disconnect true love will not die. True love doesn’t run away. If it does, it was never real. If it stays, it’s unconditional, pure and strong - in good times and in hard times too 🙏🌸🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
Reflections about love whilst I’m patiently waiting for my coffee 😄.
Patience is to keep a good attitude while waiting. And while I am waiting for my coffee I observe a couple sitting across from me. It isn’t a happy moment. The woman looks sad. Her man is sitting with his phone in his hand texting and texting totally ignoring his lovely wife. Has life really come to this? People put more energy and efforts to something as dead as a smart phone and less priority and efforts to the one they love? To their partner? To their children? People will die to please their Boss and spend precious time with a phone in their hand rather than holding the hand of their loved one. It saddens me to see this.
My advice to you today is this: Put the same hard efforts into your relationship as you do with your work, your clients, your Boss, your projects. Because the day you’ll need love and support your clients, your Boss, your work and phone will not care about you. You are a split second to them. In reality they don’t care about you, your health and your life. Where are you when your partner, family or child needs you? Do you run to them the same way you run around to please your Boss or clients? You want to give the best of yourself to your work. Do you give the best of yourself to your partner? To your child who needs your attention?
As I’m patiently waiting for my coffee observing life around me, I know that the last thing I want in my life is human disconnection. I want connection. I want love. I want respect. I want compassion. I want union. Not only in good times. In hard times too. And that my friend is hard work. But this is your real work. This is the biggest gift in life. To share moments of love with the one you love, with your partner, wife or husband, with your child, with whoever is important to you. Don’t you ever forget that 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
When the night shadows fall down and the day comes to an end, let there be no excuses for your actions and what you did today. When you lay your head on your pillow and your body slows down after a long day, let the shadows of the night take over, dim your light, turn off all devices, relax and let your mind and body rest.
If things are smooth and light for you at the moment, appreciate it. If things are a struggle and uphill, hang in there. Don’t hold on too tight. Let go, unless you want to fight until your very last breath 🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
A few gentle stretches to wake up. Whenever I have long work or travel days, I take time to stretch. In small rooms I use the bed and stretch for a 1 minute 🙏. ... See MoreSee Less
