Dear Diary #10

Dear Diary #10

Some years ago, a friend gave me a pair of Toms shoes because they didn't fit her right. And I've been wearing them all the time since. Last summer, I barely wore any other shoes. So by the end of last summer you could tell that I did and I got myself a new pair this...

Dear Diary #9

It's quite funny to think that it's only been a year since I moved to my current home. It's 8:30 in the morning, I have been outside with the dogs and fed them, and as I write this all three of us are on the couch in the living room. I wake up happy, I go to bed...

The one thing you can always count on!

It is, and always has been, my dream to find ways to live together, that respect our resources and are supportive, including finding beauty and richness in our differences, valuing and protecting vulnerability and thereby allowing each other to live freely.

In the last two years of the pandemic, we learned to live with so much less. Fewer activities, fewer opportunities, viewer distractions. Which is why it is …

Dear Diary #8 – speaking up

Dear Diary #8 – speaking up

Yesterday, I listened to an interview with Asha Frost, who reminded me of the importance to stand up strong for what’s right. In her case that means that non-indigenous people who want to work with her, have to make a conscious effort to learn about the history of the...

Dear Diary #7

Friday was a bit harder than expected. The morning started with a work meeting, which soon turned into a discussion of the current events. It was a good, a much-needed conversation, but talking about many of the things I’ve experienced in Ukraine is still very hard...

Dear Diary #6

How can I best be of service? A friend told me today that there were seemingly too many volunteers to help at HBF Berlin. I called to offer my help to translate today at a place near me that will take refugees in the upcoming days, and they basically said the same. 🙂...

This morning started fantastic, after doing some correspondence and Social Media work I listened to the latest episode of the Sounds True podcast: Our Evolutionary Leap - an interview with Lynne Twist. I highly recommend it. I might actually listen to it again after...

Dear Diary #4

Dear Diary #4

Women’s day for me is deeply connected with Ukraine. Growing up in West Germany I experienced it there for the first time. And enjoyed the flowers and kindnesses. Later, in Uzhhorod also the old ladies selling little bouquets of picked flowers on the streets. A way...

#whatsinaday 5:20 - Thinking about what to do today. Making a mental plan of my priorities. The dogs don’t sleep in the bedroom, but they sense when I’m too awake, so I have to fake sleep until I’m ready to get up 6:20 First sniffing at the door - signalling me to get...

Dear Diary #2

#whatsinaweekend It’s Saturday and I’m having a bit of a slow morning. Everything was frozen when I took the dogs outside, but the birds are already singing at 6:30 - it’s so nice that it’s bright so much earlier now. Very magical mornings. I also wrote to three...

4 Pillars to Become a Force For Good

Why be a force for good? – As women, we have always had to use all our strength to be recognized for what is inside of us. Just by being ourselves, we have developed many superpowers that can benefit us in the current challenges.

At this point, we all have to rethink our world if we want to preserve it. And for that, we need you more than ever – as a force for good.

Neo-Nazis in Ukraine

Neo-Nazis in Ukraine

It’s a scary feeling to have a war so close to home, something that I never hoped to experience. As a sensitive child who has heard many horrible stories about the first two world wars from my great-grandma and my grandparents, it was always my biggest fear.

I still remember the panic I had when I saw submarines practising in the Baltic Sea in the nineties when the war was going on in Yugoslavia and how I couldn’t stop crying. And how my Mum kept saying that it wasn’t here, that they’re not fighting here, but how I was unable to feel that separation.
