The album “Gloria Duplex” by Henry Jamison shines light and truth in dark spaces infiltrated with interstices and chasms. It gently sings of the realities of the imperfections of human seekings and struggles. The symbolism and illustrative world of language is mesmerizing and I haven’t stopped listening to it since I found it. .
Even better is its depth and adventure into the underworld of men struggling to find their rightful place here into a more divine masculine role vs the toxic masculinity our culture pushes on them. .
As a mother raising a son, a daughter of a father, a sister to a brother, a friend to many men who I love, a lover to men, and making peace with my own animus—I feel this. .
I stopped calling myself a feminist a few years ago due to the confusion it created and lines that I felt it drew in the sand between me and “them”. .
I stand by all of the men honorably trying to find their place here. It’s not an excuse or turning a blind eye for those who aren’t interested in being more courageous or living a life of integrity. But that’s not my problem. My thought is... love, support, and build up those men around us who are capable of standing up- and they can help and guide the weaker ones. In time- natural selection and conscious evolution will play itself out. Soon enough, so many behaviors and thought patterns will no longer be the norm or accepted. But we all have a part to play in this- including women. .
If we had to describe the work we do in one drawing?
It would be this one.
We genuinely cannot wait to collaborate with you and take your biz to its next successful innovation journey.

'Developing ourselves by helping others', the latest blog post.
Want to read this and more? Click here https://bgdtcoaching.wordpress.com/
A question I get asked a lot considering I work, train, coach and compete. A very tasking lifestyle that is hard to balance given the times.
My answer: "my fear of not being able to as much as this lifetime will permit me".
I could always do more, help more, teach more, coach more, train more, travel some more and compete as long as my body will allow me to. I believe I could share whatever I have and make others better.
I am no saint. I do get tired. There are days I just do nothing because my body shuts down. I make mistakes (a lot of them). I learn from them. I pick up the pieces and then I move again.
We have a finite existence. A limited concept of time that we must take advantage. I choose to love more, do good, share who I am to world and hopefully change lives. .
We are travelers that are passer byes in this lifetime. How we live defines our legacy. .
Neulich traf ich einen alten Bekannten.
Wir kannten uns vom "Square Dancing!". Lang lang ists her; das mit dem Tanzen. .
Ich freute mich und sprach ihn an: "Martin?"
Er drehte sich tatsächlich um, wir umarmten uns, unterhielten uns eine kurze Weile. Er erzählte mir, dass er Christ sei und behauptete, dass es "erwiesen sei, dass Jesus noch lebt.". Nun, da ich der Ansicht bin, dass jeder glauben kann was er will, solange er mich in Ruhe lässt....
Ich sagte ihm, dass ich eben nicht an Jesus und so glaube. Ich glaube an die Wissenschaft!
Eines Tages kam er in den Bus mit dem ich auch fahre und erzählte mir Folgendes: "In Sindelfingen am Busbahnhof wo ich aussteige da sind viele 'Nichtdeutsche', "Nichtarier" und "NIcht-blauäugige".
Ich schaute ihn an, und sagte "Und das sagst du als Christ?"
Er war darauf sowas von erbost und sagte: "Du unterstellst mir, dass ich nichts von diesen Menschen halte. Das hast du schon mal gemacht!"
Ich: "Wann genau? Was habe ich da gesagt?"
Er: "Weiß ich nicht mehr!"
Ich: "Weißt du M...., wenn du mir etwas vorwirfst, mir aber nicht genau sagen kannst, was ich gesagt habe, ist es, als hättest du es mir gar nicht gesagt!"
Er schaute mich erstaunt an und sagte: "Und du behauptest du kannst zuhören? Das kannst du eben nicht! Du manipilierst nur die Leute!" und dann ging er von dannen.
Ich wundere mich schon über diese Reaktion eines sogenannten Christen. Nicht mal aus Spaß denkt ein "wahrer" Christ so über andere Menschen. Wo ist da die vielzitierte Nächstenliebe die "sein" Jesus predigte? .
Ach ja, und was das Zuhören betrifft: "Ich denke er hat nicht verstanden, dass ich sehr genau zuhöre! Wohl zu genau für ihn!" :D
Nun grüßt mich dieser Christ nur beim Vorbeilaufen!.

#34Lessons Day Three ::
I found that the best I can do when people are struggling is tap into a wellspring of empathy or compassion for what they are experiencing while upholding healthy personal boundaries.
Empathy felt freeing for me. I could practice kindness, hold space, and still feel good, myself.
Sympathy on the other hand, kept me feeling bad for this person or scenario. Being the empath that I am, I would absorb those feelings and it triggered my codependent patterns that I’ve been working to heal for the past 10-years.
Empathy is way different than sympathy.
It’s feeling with someone versus feeling bad for someone.
Empathy is grace in action.
I’ll take empathy every time. ... Link in the bio for the full post
Hi guys, thought I might mention 3 facts about me... To get to know me a little : 😬 .
1. I'm a massive fan of good quality films and TV shows. Got far too many favourites... including (films) The Shawshank Redemption, Rocky, Warrior, The Way Back; and (TV shows) The Wire, The Bridge (Swedish - Danish), The Killing (Swedish), Game of Thrones (minus the last season 🙄), Life In Pieces, The Office, Friends... .
2. I have faced massive fears in my life and pushed way past my comfort zone: abseiled down a cliff/ hiked mountain and I'm terrified of heights!! Relocated to a far away country (moved to the Middle East for 2 years before returning to my home in the UK). And I have taken massive risks, some paid off and others were big life lessons! .
3. I have a degree in Psychology, an MSc in Human Resource Management and I coached and managed hundreds of people for over 15 years. I'm very passionate about people, and I want to make a positive impact hence starting my own business to coach people to achieve their personal goals. I'm highly empathic (INFJ on Meyers-Briggs personality test) .
I'm a friendly person so message me if you'd like to connect with me, or ask me anything. Similarly if you'd like to work with me I'd love to hear from you 🤗
(M)ein Dialog beim Bäcker! .
Sie:"Sag Mal, wie sage ich einem Menschen, dass er ein Arschloch ist?"
Ich: "Du gehst zu ihm hin und sagst: 'Du bist ein Arschloch, weil du mich angelogen hast!"
Sie: "Ja, genau!" .
Ich: "Mach dich evtl. auf die Antwort gefasst: 'Vielleicht hast du es ja verdient?'"
Große Augen....Diskussion ENDE!

At the core of My First Summer is the relationship between 16-year-olds Claudia and Grace. They find each other at a point in their lives when they both really need support, love and someone to lean on and heal with. The connection they have is so beautiful and rare, and is a joy to watch unfold. This illustration by @ambivalentlyyours sums up their relationship perfectly. 🌸

BYSTANDER EFFECT 😢
The bystander effect, or bystander apathy, is a social psychological phenomenon in which individuals are less likely to offer help to a victim when other people are present. The greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that one of them will help.
The social paralysis described by the bystander effect has implications for how we behave not only on city streets filled with strangers, but any place where we work or socialise. When individuals relinquish responsibility for addressing a problem, the potential negative outcomes are wide-ranging—from minor household issues that housemates collectively avoid dealing with to violence and abuse that go unchecked.
Photo: The Shoes on the Danube Bank is a memorial in Budapest, Hungary. Sculptor Gyula Pauer made this memorial to honour the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Crossmilitiamen in Budapest during World War II. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away. It represents their shoes left behind on the bank. 😢
“Every single thing always works out even when you don’t understand it at the moment. You can look back at past experiences and be grateful that certain things didn’t work out because you wouldn’t be where you are. Be grateful. Whatever you’re going through now will pass.
You are a miracle. Life is a miracle. Everything around you is all miraculous. Once you see things from this perspective you’ll feel a sense of peace that you don’t have to try so hard to control everything. Let go and trust in the higher power to guide you. Surrender your worries. Give up your doubt. Let yourself be free from resistance. Faith and fear can’t occupy the same space. Decide to believe in yourself and watch magical things start to happen in your life.
Stop overthinking, worrying, and stressing yourself out. Everything will be okay. It might seem like it at the moment when you’re in the midst of everything, but when you let go and feel that sense of inner ease great things will begin to happen for you. Ease is a state of trust and a powerful way of allowing. Your faith has to be strong in believing that you can manifest and receive what you want. All your requests and deep desires has been received by the universe. You efforts, your visualizations, and your prayers have been heard. You sent the signal out, now you just have to trust and be patient as your blessings begin to flow into your life. Don't think about how it will happen, that's not for you to worry about. Put it out there and let it happen.
The universe picks up vibrations and those in gratitude, joy, and love for what they want to receive get them. The grateful get showered in blessings. Instead of overthinking, align your faith with divine timing and trust that everything that belongs in your life is making its way towards you right now. Don't block what's coming by thinking negatively. What you want has been on the way, but your worry, doubt, and lack of trust has been slowing down the process. Start releasing and start receiving. You got this.” - via @idillionaire#riskhappy

“Giving, helping, looking out for, being there for others is all great. I encourage it. However, we all have limits when it just becomes too much and doesn’t feel balanced or fair to self. Honor yourself you. Honor your energy and respect yourself enough to create healthy boundaries. Honor yourself and check yourself if you are the one stretching your own boundaries. (especially when your intuition is telling you not to)” - via @sylvestermcnutt#riskhappy
