My Little Secret

I want to share a little secret with you.

I. Love. Being. Naked.

Be it sleeping naked in bed, spending the whole day naked with your partner, or running shirtless around.

Whatever you may think.

I don’t care.

It feels so good to be naked.

It feels just like it should be.

I feel connected to my own nature and everything that is around me when I’m naked.

I truely love being naked.

Especially when it comes to one thing.

Authenticity.

Being authentic means to know who you are and to communicate it ithrough your thoughts, words and actions to the world.

Give the world all you’ve got.

But still, why do we hold it back?

Why do we sometimes hang out with people we don’t like? Why do we agree to appointments we don’t want to be in? Why do we say ‘I love you’, even though our hearts don’t say so? Why do we choose a job we hate to our guts and leave our passions on the floor?

It has one word.

And it has taken on like a virus throughout society.

Do you want to know what it is?

Conformity.

We conform in our lives, because not being able to determine all consequences of our actions scares us – sometimes to death.

Conformity means security to many of us. But there is one little thing your parents might not have told you about security.

It is an illusion.

We all are part in this thing called Life. And it is a wild thing. Sometimes it scares you, other times it embraces you, then it knocks your feet off the ground, and eventually it amazes you with its miracles and its beauty.

Today you live, you may have a partner, you may have a house, you may have a well paid job which allows you to live relatively on high standards.

Tomorrow you may lose one thing or lose it all. You may suffer a heart attack, your partner may cheat on you, catastrophes may destroy your house and an economical crisis may melt down your job like a fire burns down a cigarette in your mouth. It may go all to smoke.

And these are not special cases. These are things that happen to thousands and millions of people every day.

So why hold anything back?

It is time that you kick out the word “security” out of your vocabulary and start to embrace one thing.

Vulnerability.

Embrace your vulnerability and jump headfirst into the waves of life.

Be completely you and tell people how much you care about them.

Go out and tell the cashier what a beautiful smile she has.

Kick out those poisonous people out of your life and spend more time with the ones who nurture you.

Go and do something that matters to you.

And most importantly say out loud what you believe in.

Let every thought, every word, and every action be a witness to what you believe in.

These are signs. And we live in times where people seek desperately for people who believe in what they believe in.

When you begin to be a little more authentic each day, magical things begin to happen:

People respect you for who you are. People who believe in what you believe in begin to stream into your life. People begin to see the change they wanted to see in the world.

Through You.

More Sex. More Love. More Freedom. More Happiness. Countless opportunities.

Isn’t it all you want to have?

Give the world all you’ve got and start being more authentic.

Be naked.

A friend of mine stumbled upon this highly recommending video whilst researching empathy.

Please take your time … and watch it.

Isn’t that great?

Since expressing gratitude is one of the most contributing factors to overall happiness in your life, let us try it for ourselves.

1. Think of the person who has influenced you the most.
2. Write down why this person has influenced you so much.
3. Pick up the phone to call that person and read out loud what you just wrote.

The value of feelings comes from sharing them.

Of course I had to think of the person who inspired me the most.

It was my great-grandmother.

Being a young adult during Second World War in Poland, she witnessed more cruelty any heart can bear. Despite all this hardship she and her family have been through, she kept her positive spirit, enriching the lifes of people she met with her shining spirit. Where everyone else would get bitter, she would be the light that shines on even brighter. From time to time she would share stories with me I would have never thought of, stories of profound humanity and generosity in this dark times.

My great-grandmother would always see the good in people and point it out wholeheartedly in front of other people. She always saw the good in every situation.

Simply by being herself, it is her who taught me the lessons of being a good person: always seeing the good in people, sharing with others, caring for others, and being the positive change you want to see in your life.

From early on it was her who saw something in me nobody else could see and who would support me more than anyone else. I cannot think of anyone more inspirational than her.

She was a great woman.

Unfortunately she passed away 4 years ago by the age of 96. This year would be her 100th birthday – but to me she will always be my 100 year-old great-grandmother who would always remain positive with a smile on her face and change the lifes of us with her love.

I am grateful beyond measure to have met this person.

What are you grateful for today?

Seize the abundance of happiness that is around you.

Live grateful, and always wear a smile on your face.
