A few words on empathy

“The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.”

Stephen R. Covey

At the beginning of February I asked on my Instagram account, how many empaths are there. The amount of replies was quite big and since the subject itself seems to be really important (plus not raised enough in my opinion), I decided to talk a bit more about it on the blog. The post on Instagram was inspired by a little incident, which has happened to me a while ago… on Instagram as well, surprisigly. Let’s just say I “took a wrong side”, or at least it was kind of suggested to me, while in fact I didn’t take any side at all. But that’s just the thing about empathy, I suppose. It’s often misunderstood.

My favourite feel-good films for winter (+ your suggestions)

Are you dealing with winter blues too?

Time between January and March is tough for many of us and it’s good to focus on positive vibes then. I’ve asked you a question about your favourite feel-good movies some time ago on Instagram and decided to share the whole list here. It’s quite long, so I’m sure everyone will find something suitable 🙂

Coming back to the blog & setting intentions for 2019!

“New year — a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”

Alex Morritt

Oh, hello there! Long time no see 😅 Sorry about that, I’ve kind of lost inspiration for a while and wasn’t sure, what to write about here. You see, I had so many ideas for that blog, but all of them seemed to be random and unfocused somehow. Besides, let’s be honest here, I was totally unorganised and simply could not find enough time for writing, even though I actually have a lot of free time…

Beltane Fire Festival, Edinburgh

Beltane Fire Festival in Edinburgh!

“As darkness falls and the fire torches are lit, our drums will thunder and the May Queen will awaken.”

From the description of Beltane Fire Festival 2018

Come with me to the ancient times, to celebrate the festive of light and fire, nature and life!

We’ll go along with the May Queen, to meet all the strangest creatures from myths and legends. We’ll see the Green Man being reborn and then we’ll dance around Beltane bonfire, joyfully celebrating the coming of Summer!

10 things I love about spring

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Spring has come – time of wonders, inspiration and new chances!

If you follow my Instagram, you already know that spring is my favourite time of the year (along with autumn, but more about that another time). I don’t know how it works, but spring always makes me feel so refreshed and happy! It’s like coming back to life after long winter hibernation.
