Today i feel distracted, overwhelmed and confused… there are so many things going on… i have to sort my thoughts… the best way to do that is by writing my thoughts and plans down because
1. It clears your mind for higher-level thinking.
2. It helps you process your emotions.
3. It gives you a record of the past.
4. You gain a sense of achievement.
5. It helps you think big.
6. It makes you more committed.

Today i want to share some videos of one of my fave mentors Eckhart Tolle.

Eckhart Tolle is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time. In 2008, A New Earth became the first spiritual book to be selected for Oprah’s Book Club as well as the subject of a ten-week online workshop co-taught by Eckhart and Oprah.
Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet. .
Eckhart tolle quotes;
“I am bored.” Who knows this?
“I am angry, sad, afraid.” Who knows this?
You are the knowing, not the condition that is known.
Be there as the witnessing presence of your inner state. You don’t have to do anything. With the awareness comes transformation and freedom.
On the surface it seems that the present moment is only one of many, many moments. Each day of your life appears to consist of thousands of moments where different things happen. Yet if you look more deeply, is there not only one moment, ever? Is life ever not this moment? This one moment, now, is the only thing you can never escape from. The one constant factor in your life. No matter what happens. No matter how much your life changes. One thing is certain. Its always now. Since there is no escape from the now, why not welcome it, become friendly with it.
Do you treat this moment as if it were an obstacle to be overcome? Do you feel you have a future moment to get to that is more important?
Almost everyone lives like this most of the time. Since the future never arrives, except as the present, it is a dysfunctional way to live. It generates a constant undercurrent of unease, tension, and discontent. It does not honor life, which is Now and never not Now.
I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions, and experiences. I am not the content of my life. I am Life. I am the space in which all things happen. I am consciousness.
When you look at a tree, you are aware of the tree. When you have a thought or feeling, you are aware of that thought or feeling. When you have a pleasurable or painful experience, you are aware of that experience. These seem to be true and obvious statements. Yet if you look at them very closely, you will find that in a subtle way their very structure contains a fundamental illusion, an illusion which is unavoidable when you use language. Thought and language create an apparent duality and a separate person where there is none.
The truth is you are not somebody who is aware of the tree, the thought, feeling or experience. You are the awareness or consciousness in and by which those things appear. As you go about your life, can you be aware of yourself as the awareness in which the entire content of your life unfolds?

One of my challenges is to get more organized… this includes our home.
It works wonder if you declutter your home…
By researching i found this infos and video:
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and New York Magazine’s Wendy Goodman.
Clear the clutter from your home—and your mind—with help from Japan’s “queen of clean” Marie Kondo. Japanese organizational consultant and lifestyle phenomenon Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you’ll never have to do it again.
With a practical yet philosophical approach, Marie explains her patented KonMari Method, a category-by-category approach to efficient tidying. Learn to tackle decluttering head on and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire. Does an item “spark joy?”—if it does, keep it; if it doesn’t, throw it away.
“When we really delve into the reasons for why we can’t let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or fear for the future.

Hey, after a good sleep i m feeling strong again… a new week is a new start
Let´s make it an awesome week.
This was my lunch:
Here are 2 motivational videos:
Links to the videos: Video 1 and Video 2
(i just saw that i forgot to post this video yesterday – it was only on draft
Since yesterday evening i m not feeling so well… it´s very seldom that i have headache but yesterday i had a strong one… i did drink a lot of fresh water (water is very important because about 70% of our body is water)… and i felt better… i m drinking distilled water which i produce with a distiller because i heard it´s the best…
Here are two videos why:
But i m still not 100% good again… i guess i need more rest too because the last weeks i went to sleep late and spent a lot of time online because i have so many things in my mind that i want to do and i m excited and i think that makes me stress too… and i had the teet operation some days ago which needs to heal too and i was working too…
However not much to say today… it´s always if i try to rush and push something to much, then it doesn´t work for me… then i have to take a rest and get calm and start with a fresh mind and fresh power
How could i forget that ?!
I almost forgot 1 important commitment:
6. Expressing gratitude/appreciation 30 minutes every day

Today i decided to create graphics for my 30 Day Challenge (the one above here) and a logo and new graphics for my website “sunshinelady.net” because the other one i created was about 1 or 2 years ago. I love the new design
new one: Look at the difference – which one is better?
I also created posts for instagram. Look at them by clicking here
Hey… today i was by the dentist and he had to do an operation on my teeth because i had an abscess… i had some pain and couldn´t eat the whole day… but now in the evening i cooked some pumpkin and blended it with some chlorella and spirulina powder and that was so delicious & healthy… good for healing
I didn´t do much today because of that and i was just creating some demo sites of blog wordpress themes… and i m still looking for the perfect theme and design for this website here… i may have to use some individual site builder which i bought a while ago…hopefully with them real custom design is possible
Today is the first day of my new life
More and more i feel that it´s time to change some things about myself… over the past years i created some habits that are not supporting me in my life´s goals…
Finally i decided and commited to it
Read what i wrote here:
and these papers i draw and now they are sticking on my wall to see every day and to remember what to focus on
