You Don’t Need To Be Rich To Have It All

4. August 2019 • Katja Laurien

What does wealth mean to you? Are you wealthy if you have a lof of money? If you can buy everything this modern world has to offer? To me, wealth does not necessarily have to do with money. In my opinion, you’re wealthy if you can afford to have all the things you want. And I consider myself to be extremely wealthy. I’m a waitress who works not only part-time but is also on holidays nearly half of the year.

Why I can’t wait to be 50! – My perspective on aging

1. October 2017 • Katja Laurien

Today I want to share a short, but very important idea with you. Todays topic is my view on aging. Generally, this topic is approached in a rather negative way. Aging means losing your youthfulness which equals becoming ugly, fat, incapable, slow etc. To a certain extent this might be true. Indeed, our bodies change and we feel we can’t do the things we used to do. But how often do we actually focus on the things we gained throughout the years, rather than focusing on the things we lost or are about to loose?

How to get organized in 4 steps

3. September 2017 • Katja Laurien

You might wonder what a post about organization is doing in a spiritual blog. Just continue reading and you will soon understand… But before I start, I would like to give you a small introduction to my relationship with being (un)organized: As a child, teenager and young adult I was horribly messy and unorganized. My room would always look like a war zone, I was always late for school and I constantly forgot everything.
