I am going to be 100% honest with you guys: a lot of the time that I am in Munich I am miserable, unhappy with my life and I have zero inspiration to do things. Whilst travelling I have been to some extremely powerful places on this globe and whenever I have been in such a spot it felt like I was another person. Suddenly everything was easy and fell into place. I truly believe that choosing the place where you want to live is crucial for your life to be good. The reason that I am sharing this with you right now, is simply because some of you might be going through something similar and by writing about it, I hope that I can inspire you to realize that the problem is not you, it might as well be the place you are currently living.
Typing this I am still considering, whether it is stupid to blame your home for certain things in your life not going right, however this has been so true in my life at the moment, that I simply can not think of it to be wrong. Ok, so let me explain everything to you by giving you examples of two totally different Janines:
Janine in Munich: Never motivated to go out and do things. Extremely uninspired. Worries a lot. Has to force everything she needs to do. Nothing comes in a natural “flow”.
Janine in Bali: Happy, motivated and excited to do things. Constantly inspired. Meets amazing people that fit perfectly into her life right now. Attracts opportunities. Life is easy.
I truly believe in the law of attraction and the concept of us attracting what we are and what we think. I feel that by being in a place where our frequency vibes well with everything around us we are so much better at attracting good things into our lives.
“By being in a place where we are truly happy
and our frequency vibes well with our intentions,
it is so much easier to attract good things into our lives.”
Think of it this way: how are you supposed to feel happy, uplifted and encouraged in a friendship group that is envious and constantly tries to bring you down? It is extremely hard and anyone would recommend for you to leave that group. Same goes for the place you live in. If your environment simply doesn’t support your personal growth you should reconsider if this is the place for you.
There are certain things I worry about so much and work extremely hard for in Munich and then whenever I travel to some powerful place (e.g. Bali, Cape Town etc.) those things just suddenly fall into my lap: people call, I receive exciting emails, life works.
I don’t want to say that Germany is a bad place to live in. It is definitely not. Munich is just not the place for me at this point in time. I think we all have a place that works very well for us, we just got to figure out where it is. And how do we do that? By travelling!
“Travelling is more valuable
than a new handbag ever will be.”
Travelling is one of the most valuable things there is. I would recommend to anyone who is having a hard time, who is feeling depressed or uninspired to go travelling. Nothing else makes you realize the abundance of opportunities and gives you a new perspective on life like travelling does.
Yes, not everyone has the money to travel a lot, but here another one of my favorite quotes comes in: “One day you will either have stories to tell or excuses to talk about.” Work hard, save money and be assured: travelling will be worth way more than a new handbag ever will be.
“One day you will either have stories to tell
or excuses to talk about”
By living in a place that aligns with our values, and by surrounding ourselves with people that vibe on the same frequency as we do, it is just so much easier to attract good into our lives.
On Instagram you only see my highlight moments. Of course, I post a lot more when I travel somewhere, when I am inspired and truly happy. But when I am in Munich I oftentimes can’t get myself to do anything. I feel like I am not living life to its fullest potential.
Maybe Munich would be the perfect place for you, but for me it is simply not. Writing this post, I just want to give you guys an idea of how unmotivated and uninspired I sometimes feel. It is totally normal, however Travelling has shown me the potential in this life and it has made me realize that I need to leave Germany again in order to live life to the fullest.
This is not about running away. It is more about running to a place where you can find your magic.
Lots of love to all of you,
