Why I Deleted My Twitter Account

why I deleted my Twitter account

Turning 29 is having a bigger impact on me than I thought. After a few weeks of offline musings, I’m back to New York. Feeling a bit stronger, empowered and supported by all of you. My last post was the perfect outlet to help me manage my feelings – and get some amazing feedback. Throughout these past weeks, I got quieter and took a look at myself. I figured, I...

How to Stay Positive When All Seems to Go Wrong

stay positive

We’ve all had those moments when we feel powerless against the universe’s dark sense of humor. When you see life happening for everyone except you, it can be hard to stay positive and see what good is out there. Because there is good in each moment, and you have to be the one finding it. These sorts of moments bring me clarity and a sense of enlightenment. While finding joy in...

20 things you might not know about me

That is absolutely correct! There’s a celebration going on throughout this day, week and month. I Life You turns 3! My baby can already talk, walk, stand straight and even curse sometimes. I don’t want to elongate myself on how proud I am to have been doing this for the past 3 years, even though recently it’s a bit on the quiet side. I’m working hard on bringing you the...

Managing a Hectic Schedule and Still Finding Time For Me

managing a hectic schedule

Last week I asked on Instagram if you guys wanted me to talk about managing a hectic schedule and still feeling invigorated. Some of you answered on the picture and others sent private messages saying yes, which was amazing. Thank you so much! (Again, I’d rather be writing content that you ask for). Ever since we came back from Portugal, going on 3 months now, things have been crazy busy. I...

How Can We Stop Comparing and Start Empowering Ourselves

stop comparing

We’ve all fallen down that rabbit hole. It innocently starts with a simple scroll down our Instagram feeds. Eventually, thoughts start to emerge in our minds. Why does she have that? Why is she there? Why am I here? It’s a fucking trap. But after all those feelings fade, we can agree how ridiculous it is. Meaning that it doesn’t make any sense that we’re comparing our lives to other people’s....

One Month of Sweat With Kayla – And Why I Started

Kayla

About a month ago, I started looking at old pictures of myself. Suddenly, it was 2 in the morning and I haven’t even gone through half. My friends and I used to take a lot of pictures. But one thing I noticed, that I hadn’t before, I was always chubby. I wasn’t necessarily fat, but I wasn’t healthy either. My weight fluctuates a lot, I get moments when everything is...

Why Having a Local Bucket List Is Your Next Move

bucket list

This has been my second time living abroad. A few years ago, I moved to Dubai and back in 2014, me and my husband came to New York City. I’ve always heard stories, seen movies, TV shows, read books, articles about living in the big apple. I guess you can only really experience a city once you’ve lived in it. 2017 marks our third year here. And while I’m overly...

Wellbeing Week: My Husband’s Healthy Habits to Have in 2017

healthy habits

M tuning in. Being a sportsman for almost my entire life, ensures I have a lot to say about the subject of healthy habits. It’s not easy to lead a life of professional competition, but I want to talk about being a healthy person daily. I’ve seen my wife struggle with insecurity and body issues. I too deal with them – maybe not so much every single day. But there are...

Wellbeing Week: 10 Realistic Things You Can Do To Be Happy

happy

I preach a lot about happiness and being happy. And I realize it’s not a realistic thing to do, being that no one can feel happy every single day. Throughout the past few years, I’ve found that you can find happiness in various things – big or small. I also realized, happiness is something we can achieve, but it’s more commonly dependent on ourselves. It’s not an easy state to be...
