When Your Values Change

When I was younger, my dream was to become a famous singer. As a young girl, I began discovering my talents and soon became addicted to the flow — the mental state you get into when performing an activity in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment. I had this dream for about half of… Continue reading When Your Values Change

Long-Term Stress Really Will Kill You

The past year has been truly exhausting for me. Amongst other things, looking for a new job, updating and improving my portfolio, a full-time job working from nine to six, attending career coaching sessions, and trying to make music at the same time.

The Importance of Broadening Your Perspective

I consider myself a broadminded person. Although I work as a designer, I don’t limit my daily reads and scrolls to Dribbble or Behance feeds.

I make it a daily habit to read about politics, society and the state of the world, spirituality, beauty,… Continue reading The Importance of Broadening Your Perspective

What Letting Go Of An Old Dream Feels Like

This is probably the first post I write in non-advisory tone. I literally have no advice for anyone right now. We all have our moments when we need to think and reflect on where we stand in life.
