What is style? Wikipedia says „someone has style when he moves safely within a canon of taste.“ But what is the canon of taste? Is it what the advertisements show us? The fashion magazines?

I was asked this question the other day and I actually didn’t know the answer. I’m 42, I don’t feel 25. At 25, I had smoother skin (but also spots). And I could party for several days straight. I was free and lived into the day. But I was also naive and nowhere near as … Mehr How old do you feel?
The year is coming to an end, recaps everywhere, memories of the best moments, the most favorable pictures. But what if the greatest memories consist only of the negative experiences?

This sentence from a podcast recommended to me by a strong woman still resonates. How often do we let our environment slow us down, influence us negatively? How often does the idea we felt was the greatest just a moment ago meet with criticism? How often do we receive warnings because someone means well? Or … Mehr Only listen to people who are already where you want to be.
Don’t worry, it won’t be philosophical. About 15 years ago, I was asked what the meaning of life was for me. Without thinking long and hard, the answer was: procreation. To bring children into the world, to leave something of oneself to posterity. I still hold this opinion. To have children that you raise in … Mehr The Meaning of Life
Pump it up! A few facts first: In most heads the old wisdom has settled: If you want a dream figure, you can’t get around cardio training.

Going through a separation is never easy. Not for the one who leaves, and certainly not for the one who stays. Saying goodbye to your ex-partner, turning your back and never looking back is a personal challenge. And yet, something new and unknown is waiting on the other side. First, one’s own self, which wants … Mehr Staying Family
Obviously I like quotes & sayings. I didn’t even know that a few months ago, before Instagram & new-me.blog. Favorite saying: „if your girlfriend is gorgeous & loyal, why flirt with others? why cheat? it’s like throwing away a diamond and picking up a chicken nugget.“ (@womenforhappy). Wonderfully funny. But somehow also vapid. Superficial. Is … Mehr SOCIAL MEDIA
I don’t know about you, but I can recall dozens of stories from young moms who all reported the same thing in the first few months of motherhood: – I barely sleep more than three hours at a time – I don’t know when I last took a shower – I also don’t know when … Mehr NEW MOM: ABOUT PERFECTIONISM AND EXPECTATIONS
Since I became a mother, everything is different. I rarely sleep through the night. And even more rarely longer than seven hours. I hear every cough from the next room, even in deep sleep.

Why do some people manage to move on and even reinvent themselves after a breakup or the death of a partner, and others do not? Unfortunately, there is no instruction manual here, and the person who should bring it out someday deserves the Nobel Prize.

How do you recognize a strong woman? How does a woman know if she is one? And what does it mean to be strong anyway? Is strength synonymous with professional and/or financial success?
