It’s been a long time ago, I have been writing something here on this blog.
Honestly, I am struggling with the idea of what to do and where to go.
Actually, it is like always. Haha!
But I want to continue. One of my goals for next year.
This year has been amazing. I met wonderful places, like on Bali or Santa Teresa and Nosara in Costa Rica. But also Tarifa in South Spain was amazing. And I met a lot of beautiful people, who entered my heart, and from whom I learned a lot about life, business and about myself.
Every single person was my teacher on my path through life.
I made big steps in my personal growth and could broaden up my mind even beyond my horizon, where I thought there must be the horizon. But learning and experiencing is endless.
I am writing to you right now from my little apartment in Santa Marta in Colombia, sitting in my hammock, with the view over the city.
I was here primarily to volunteer for an organization, which is called Mariposa Amarilla, supporting street kids in this area. I decided to use the time, while everyone is celebrating Christmas with there beloved ones, to share my love with those who need it the most.
On Christmas Eve I spent time
with the local family where I stay. It’s a small apartment I booked via Airbnb. I live in a barrio (district) where just locals live. No tourists here. This is the best way to learn and understand the culture and people, who are living here.
When I reflect the last year, I can just see beautiful moments and experiences. Of course, there have been also negative moments, but this is a part of life. And honestly, most of the time they just kicking you even deeper in reality, and you will feel that you are alive.
My worst problems the last months have been electronic problems. 2 laptops crashed and my phone is since days locked by a Colombian mobile provider so that I can’t use it. That sucks, but it’s just a material problem.
But since I decided, to live a nomad lifestyle reduced my guts to a minimum and nowadays have fewer things and responsibilities – I feel richer than ever before. Because once you have nothing, you can do everything.
You can’t lose a lot and you can act spontaneously.
What I learned this year, is that you can open the door to another world, that welcome you with open arms, a world that’s so diverse and intensive, If you allow yourself to let go, let go from beliefs, habits and too many expectations. The world is constantly moving and changing. So stop to collect things, save, live secure, and build up a future, which you won’t able to keep it. Live right now. In this and every single moment, expect changes and be even open to new things that come along. This is part of the game. If you can handle it, you can reach the next levels.
And they are so much fun!
I am already looking forward to. Just the next 2 month will be amazing for me, with many new experiences.
I am going to have my first tattoo. On my ankle. Finally, my roommate and host in Bogota inspired me to do it now.
I will join a sacred medicine retreat with the elders and Sharman’s. One part will be of course Ayahuasca. I am a little bit scared to take this medicine, what it’s called here in this area. But I am going to prepare myself and think I am ready now – especially from a spiritual perspective.
Then I will do an excursion to the Amazon and fly to Brazil to celebrate Carnival in Rio. Raised in the Carnival city Cologne, participating on the biggest Carnival parties in the world, has been always a dream for me since I am a young girl.
Afterward surfing again in Pipa! 🙂 I never thought that you could get so addictive with surfing.
But it’s true.
I will keep you updated about all my experiences.
I wish everyone a good start of a new year, and a new chapter to change or improve yourself. Open your eyes, ears, heart, and mind and live every moment…wherever you are!
