Questioning the systems of modern society
Sometimes you just feel like banging your head against the wall. I discovered, it’s better I go for a walk, a run, a bike, do some Yoga. Not all at once but sometimes all in one day.
I would like to be the following person:
Finding out about the world and people. Reading and listening with an open mind. Trying to understand the story behind things. Trying to see from different perspectives. Get out of the system for a while, step back and wonder.
Sometimes, I’m more like this:
WTF, this system is so fucked up. The health system, the tax system, the property system, the school system, the food system, the transport system etc. It’s frustrating and infuriating and the climate is in crisis and the planet is being destroyed and humans are totally f…….. Hold on, deep breath, calm down.
My goal is to be less of the WTF and more of the Wondering With Kindness. Kindness shines and gets you ahead officially as a important success factor these days… finally ancient wisdom is backed up by modern science.
I like to think a lippy woman has something to say, to contribute or to start a conversation. Maybe to ask uncomfortable questions, maybe dealing with her own uncomfortable self beliefs. Encouraging other women to do the same, all this applies also to men. To have real conversations with real people about real topics that really matter to humanity. Then we realise that most people struggle just the same with issues such as Ego, limiting beliefs, self hate, guilt and shame.
The trolls and haters will find this intriguing, so I start right here not giving a shit. You can get in touch via Facebook on the Home Page or sign up for irregular email notifications when there’s new blog posts.

TellING MY Story
I was born in Germany and after dealing with a few of life’s curveballs there, I packed my bags and went backpacking around New Zealand, never to return…. just occasional visits. I’m trying to shrink my own impact on the planet with daily conscious decisions about the resources I’m using. I believe small things count and I dismiss other’s attitudes that apply labels to ideas and people when they’re based on laziness, such as calling something “hypocratic” – I assume we are all trying our best with what we’ve got. Naive you say… so what??!
I live in a small village on the bottom of the South Island in the Pacific Ocean and choose my exposure to world events and people carefully. The differences between us humans are being highlighted by the media in the worst way like fearmongering and scare tactics. Personally, I like to concentrate on what brings us together, the things we have in common, our dreams, hopes and responsibility. If it feels to you I that I have my head in the sand, you may go away, there’s no room in my little cave of caring for you.
