Did you ever hear about Super Woman Syndrome? The intimacy coach Michaela Boehm speaks about the “Plight of the Modern Woman” in her book “The Wild Woman’s Way” which has inspired me enormously over the last few days. I’m writing to you from Palma where I’m taking a break from my daily duties and all the noise in my head. I arrived exhausted and stressed and I want to share a couple of insights to help you get through times of stress also.
It’s the third year in a row now that I am setting aside time to complete my year. I see it as a beautiful ritual that supports me so I can start the New Year mentally strong. I will share some of the things I personally learned and give you a couple of powerful questions to ask yourself so that you also can achieve completion in 2018.
Do you mean YES when you say yes? Are you able to say NO when you mean no? A lot of us struggle with setting boundaries, especially when it’s about putting ourselves first and doing what is best for us.
Can you set limits and still be a loving person?

I have taken a couple of wrong decisions in my private life the past few weeks. I haven’t been inspired neither excited to write articles or lead workshops. There are phases in our lives when there is no flow and that’s okay. Nothing is wrong. It’s simply just life trying to teach us something. I want to share what I’ve learned recently about what helps me to find my way back to creativity.
A year ago I wrote my first blog article. Since then I have kept on writing articles regularly. It has supported me to stay committed toward myself, and to live what I preach. Writing has also become a way for me to acknowledge my learnings. Today I wish to share and acknowledge my most important learnings this year, and I hope I will inspire you to make a similar list.
How I stopped being a victim and started taking responsibility – tips how to feel at home in a foreign country
I remember my first weekend in Berlin ten years ago, when I walked the streets of Schönhausser Allee and cried on the phone while talking to my boyfriend. I had moved here from Warsaw, and he wasn’t in town.
I was devastated, I had left my well-paid job, my great friends and a cozy apartment, which I just finished renovating. I had left it all to follow my heart and live with the man I had fallen in love with.
I was sitting on the terrace in his huge apartment feeling terribly lonely and wondering what on earth I had done.

I will give you some ideas what might block you from doing what you want, and I will share what works for me and a very personal story.
