My new creativity blog is born – Health and Life coach for creatives

Who I am and why I am here was one big question I was dealing with for the last year and the reason I stopped blogging. I was going through my own personal journey to discover myself and my true soul’s purpose. Now, I have some big news: I recently became a certified Health and Life Coach and specialise in creative people like you and me. Going forward I am going to share tips and stories which helped me to find my purpose in life and living a life which is in line with my creative personality. My new creativity blog is born, and I am looking forward to having you creative folks on board.

Why a Health and Life Coach Why Now?

I can say I am feeling content and fulfilled with my life right now. I found my purpose, but that has not always been like this. It took me years to find out who I truly am.

How it all began

I was born and raised in Germany and moved to Australia in 2007. That’s where my journey began to discover myself. I was working as an auditor in big corporations. I always thought that was my career and I made my parents happy. However, it never made me happy. Something was missing, but I couldn’t tell what it was. I blamed the long working hours and the company.

In 2010 I changed to a bigger corporation, and my life went downwards. My health suffered. I was stressed like never before, always tired even though I slept for 7-8 hours each night. Going to dancing schools or gym was not an option any longer because I had no energy to move. I worked to at least midnight every night even on weekends. My life was feeling like hell to me. I gained weight and felt horrible; I couldn’t look into the mirror any longer. The person I saw in the mirror was not me. What happened?

My turning point

Luckily, my employer sent me to a leadership seminar, which was about life and our values. I realised that the life I lived was not the life I imagined to have and was not even in line with my values. It was time to stop living a life to please others but to step into my own personal power and change my life.

First, I had to get into a healthy state. From that day on, I signed up for dancing classes, left work early and went to the gym. It felt good. My food choices were healthy, but now I paid more attention to the amount of sugar I ate. We sometimes don’t realise how much sugar is hidden in everything we eat. My energy level doubled, and I never felt that healthy and sexy. My stress level reduced significantly, and I was more productive at work. In fact, I could prove with numbers that I managed to complete more work in fewer hours.

Now, this sounds like I made it? No, not yet. This was just the beginning. I gained clarity on what I liked doing. I bought a DSLR and signed up for a photography course, taught myself a lot about photography and travelled around the world whenever I could get enough leave.

Something had changed in me during that time. My values became clearer to me. I faced the real world I was still living in. Even though I was on top of my work, people were not happy with me leaving work early. I felt this internal block to keep travelling along this path, and I was wondering what was wrong with me. Well, nothing was wrong with me, I just didn’t live my truth. I was trying to fit in to please others but not myself.

Over the years I nourished myself and read a lot of self-help and spiritual books, did meditations on a regular basis. That helped me to learn more about myself and who I truly am.

It didn’t take me long to discover that I just worked differently as a creative person. You can’t put a creative person in a 9-5 job without giving them time to pursue their passion. Creative people will die from the inside. I met so many creative people in my life, and they all face the same challenges, most people don’t even realise that they are creative. It became evident to me that my mission is to help creative people to gain back their health and see clearly what they are made of. I love to help them to unlock their own personal power, to change their disempowering into empowering beliefs and be the creative person they are born to be.

My life now

I am now a certified Health and Life Coach. This is my calling, and I put all of my passion into my work as a coach.

Don’t wait 10 or more years to discover what you want. Life happens, and sometimes we become so stuck in our daily habits we feel it’s all too hard to change. However, you can change with the help of a health and life coach who will guide you along the way and provide you with the right system, support and accountability to make the change your body and soul are longing for!

Why am I writing and sharing my photos

enjoy the early morning

I am writing because I love to share my travel stories and happiness quotes with you. I hope to inspire you to open your eyes when walking through your day, to see the beauty in our nature and help you creating your own happiness.

I love taking and sharing my photographs with you. See and experience amazing places in the world with me through my photos and writing.

A beautiful day in Fitz Roy National Park in Patagonia.

We easily can get caught up with first world problems in our lives and forget to see the beauty around us. I want you to open your eyes and mind throughout the day. You will be amazed what you can see. The best part is, you don’t need to travel to see beautiful nature.

With my photos and happiness stories I want you to see the things you cannot buy with money and to be grateful of the little things you have. Enjoying the simple things in life is what we learn when we travel and experience different cultures with an open mind. Money cannot buy you happiness.

appreciate the little things
People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be

I am writing to reflect on situations we sometimes experience in life. No matter how bad a situation can be, you mostly can choose to see the positive side in it and move on knowing you learned a lesson. When one door closes another door opens.

Open window
Open your mind

Choose to be happy and you will be.

Welcome to my blog. I am happy that you decided to stick around for a while to check out some of my previous posts.

Enjoy.

Who I am and why I am here

I love landscape photography and published my own website in October 2014. Back then I was getting excited to travel to Southamerica for 2 months. All I wanted to do in the beginning was to share my photos from my travelling with friends and family, so I decided to create a blog. It takes some time to get familiar with blogging and to get used to find some time to actually write something. Once I came back from my travelling, I wasn’t really active with my blog but going through all my photos and remembering the stories I had experienced and lessons I learned I suddenly could see a greater purpose of what I want to achieve with my blog.

I wanted more than just sharing my travel itinerary and showing my photos but to take you with me on my journey. There is a difference between being a tourist and being a traveller. For me the most enjoyable part of travelling is to live in and experience the different cultures, to eat the food the locals eat, to understand their values and history but for most of it to enjoy and respect the beautiful nature god has given to us around the world.

Seeing colleagues in the office closing the blinds of the windows because the sun is shining but not seeing how the sun is trying to break through the beautiful amazing big layer of fog covering the Harbour bridge of Sydney or missing out on colourful sunsets and sunrises, makes me want to scream. How can you be so busy not to see and admire this? Also seeing lots of people not believing in themselves but just doing a job to earn money so they can pay their rent, makes me sad.

I want to break through that vicious cycle and want you to open your eyes and realise how beautiful our mother nature is. My mission is to inspire you to be a happier person and to live your life to its fullest potential.

That’s when I started to launch my happiness blog, in which I pick one of my photographs I took from beautiful places around the world and tell a story which helps you to find your own happiness and to embrace the little and simple things in life.

Travelling especially through South America was an eye-opener making me realise how rich our lives in the westernised world are and that we shouldn’t have any reason to complain about anything.

My mission is to inspire you, to change your mindset and maybe even your life reading my stories. We easily forget about our positive things in life until the day you travel to third world countries which open your eyes if you choose to. I hope I can kick your travel bug and you will travel to those places and see the magic in our world. If you can’t afford your dream trip yet, don’t worry, keep reading and I will take you on my journey. When you close your eyes you might even be able to feel what I was feeling when traveling to those places.
