What to do when the near end of vacation and the vision of returning to work cause overwhelming stress

My longest vacation since I was on maternity leave, which is over 3 years, is now coming to an end. Two weeks with children on the go, without any stress or major problems. Complete relaxation. Unfortunately, this time is running out and my head has already started to think about…


How to regain inner peace, do not expect too much, but believe that everything will be just fine at the end

Aging is not the issue

Sometimes we make decisions that affect everything around us, and when they cost you a lot, you think it’ll get better later. For nearly seven months of living alone with my children after ending a long difficult relationship, I have a lot of thoughts on this subject, but I try…


Sometimes there is no other option but to make a choice and then wait patiently to see what happens

Cutting off

It’s been six months since I’ve lived alone with my children. Looking from the side, you could say that it can’t be easy for me because everything is on me. But honestly? These are the best months in years, if not my entire life. Perhaps it was because, whether I…


Is the so-called sixth sense something real or an invention justifying a subjective assessment of people and situations?

“I knew!” — a thought that I have had too often about situations in which, as I call it, I was not listening to myself. The omnipresent “gut feeling” is something that is part and parcel of me, and I actually take it for granted. However, having an intuition and…


What to do when the usual simple ways fail and you can no longer cope

Being at home can feel like a trap. A year ago, I spent all April babysitting my children with the first big wave of the virus. Time has come full circle and it is the same again. I should be better prepared, especially mentally, but the fact is, I’m just…


Heavy snowfall and frost in the countryside helped me overcome the worst time after breaking long-term toxic relationship

The last week has given me a hard time. I actually feel more like an inhabitant of a wild ice land than an office worker. …


Sudden inspiration sometimes pops into your head and won’t let you sleep anymore until the dream comes true. Some people just can’t sit still.

So here I am — freed myself. After awakening in life, a period of shaking off a nightmare, and a transitional time in which you doubt everything that is happening around you, there is a time when your whole body and mind take a new path. Theoretically, I should rest.


Why the wishes of a healthy, happy and peaceful holiday are sometimes so difficult to fulfil

How many of you would just like to have peace of mind during Christmas? Eat dinner at home, then watch movies, not have to go out or hug a dozen further uncles and aunts, don’t go crazy with cleaning, don’t cook, just lie down, read books and rest? This is…


Letting go of people who don’t want to be in your life

Today I wanted to write something important, refreshing, for everyone. However, the moment when I am in life means that I can’t focus fully on anything but experiencing what is happening around. I said goodbye to someone important to me today. …


You can always let go of a relationship, even if you’ve spent years on it. It is important to know what you want out of life. And sometimes what you don’t want.

Sometimes love is not enough. Sometimes, attachment, habit, adoration of routine, peace and stability are also not enough. There are times when the material is so worn and tired that each person in the relationship must go their own way in order to survive. There are cases when you know…
