“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.”
― audre lorde

Freedom is collective AND it is personal, when it lies in that moment between a trigger and your reaction: the freedom to choose how to act, how to behave, whether you cause more suffering or less.

On this page, you find some inspiration when it comes to living more freely.

You are also invited to join A MAGICAL YEAR to explore this topic more thoroughly, or book a coaching session with me to invite more freedom into your life right now.


Why is it that no one is free, if all of us aren’t free? How do we free our mind? If we stay where we are, we limit ourselves. If we stick with what we know, we can’t grow. Freedom lies in new experiences and the more we open ourselves up, the more we can grow. If we make ourselves vulnerable, we grow. If we’re brave, we grow. If we’re not embarrassed by what we did, said or thought three years ago, we haven’t grown enough (Dr. Benjamin Hardy). If we’re afraid to embarrass ourselves, we can’t grow. There’s no need to be afraid. What is it that you are going to try next?

Why starting is the most important thing.

Why starting is the most important thing.

As an eight-year-old, when I woke up in the morning, I knew exactly what the most important thing was for me to do.

My friends and I would meet outside our school building to talk about everything that had happened in the 18 hours since we last saw each other. I could not wait to …


How do you spend your spare time? Do you make room for activities that help you decompress? Most of the time, most people, do things to treat themselves that are not actually good for them: watching TV, eating sweeties or comfort food, getting a drink, shopping. These are all things that really kill our spirit and prevent us from making real connections. But what are healthy and beneficial things to do in our spare time? Here you can find some ideas.

Our world is full of amazing things, many of which are yet for us to discover. One thing, that means freedom to me more than anything, is practising the beginners mind. Looking at things, situation, places, people, like I’ve never seen them or heard anything like it before. Looking, listening with an open heart. We still have so much to learn. Where do you like to go? Where do you like to shower yourself in new experiences? These are some moments when I dove into the unknown.

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.

What does it look like to be of service to the world?
I wake up happy, I go to bed happy. I get so much more done in a day than I ever would have imagined.

I’ve solved a washing machine problem this morning, tended to my plants, had breakfast, planned for some future articles, checked my emails and danced a little in the kitchen.

In no way would this have been possible a year ago.
