Clouds have no influence on the Sun (Free Ebook)

I would like to tell you that everything is O.K. and that life is simple. I often have the impression that it is so but mostly than, when my life works out. When not, my life is often an emotional roller coaster. I assume that you may have made similar experiences getting attracted by such a title and cover. Join the club! Here I show you how you can learn to live in a way which is bearable and how I make my day.

I don’t like the approach of coaching to optimize yourself and I am a little bit distrustful according to specialists. I prefer the layman style. Meaning at least you are the last authority of your life – nobody else. That means you are responsible for yourself. When you make decisions you have to take the consequences. Let’s grow up and realizing our responsibilities. Let’s stop admiring people thinking “I want to be like him or her.” No! If you become yourself it’s enough.

Although we have the full responsibility for every step on the way, we are not alone. I know by experience it’s hard and sometimes humiliating to ask for help. When your self-worth in the crisis already is low – I know it from my own burnout – your pride “I make it by myself.” is seemingly the only thing what is left over of your dignity. That’s bloody wrong!

Morning Prayer in bad times (insp. by Psalm 3)

Oh God, I have so many enemies, so many people are against me! Many say of me: God doesn’t help him. But you, Lord, are my protection, and you give me back my dignity, that I can walk my way upright with my head lifted up.

My soul calls to the Lord, you hear me from the beyond of the mountains. I lie and sleep and awake, for I am in your hand. Therefore I am not afraid of my enemies gathering against me.

Come on, Lord, help me, my God! Let my enemies run out of breath, that their talking against me is reduced to silence. You help me, Lord. Bless all who believe in you.
