Motherhood, changes and the new tools for a good life

So a few months ago, I became a mom. I'm still undecided if posting pictures of babies online is an ok thing to do. So, here's a pic of me with a huge belly just before giving birth. Pregnancy was quite surprisingly easy to bear. I had no nausea, didn't gain much weight, got over my insomnia... But ...

Wanting it all vs letting it go

In the past week I've been confronted with three stories on the conflict between wanting it all vs letting go. I call it the Universe really trying to tell me something. All three of them are successful women, quite career-focused, ambitious and hard-working. However, at one point in time, they all realized that some other things may ...

Innovation starts from an empty page

{source: link} Creation starts from the void. Or so the Holy Books tell us. I get my inspiration in the morning, driving to work, listening to music.

3 things I want to do this Holiday season

Hello my dears and Happy Holidays! As I write this, my mother is in the kitchen preparing the turkey for the Christmas dinner, there's carols on the radio and around town there are some people carrying bags with supplies to cook later today. It's easy to get stressed or anxious about the Christmas cookies, burning the special ...

Take it easier during the Holiday season. Here’s one simple idea.

In case you feel rushed, stressed, pressed, pulled from side to side...take a deep breath. And keep hope that it will turn out just fine. You know that saying Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not ok, then it's not the end. According to Stephen Covey, one of the main things happier people do is keep ...

Focus: Learn something new

Life without meaning can be very depressing. Having no purpose behind what you do everyday can make your days grey and foggy like a November morning. But once you discover something you love (or someone , sometimes :) ), all rays of light seem to gather to shine on that new purpose. It puts an engine ...
