Why are we unhappy? On the “desire” to be happy
by Dasha Lukiniha

Have you ever wondered why we so often tell ourselves – “I’m fed up with this job”, “I’m fed up with these extra 10 kilograms hanging from my belly”, “I’m not happy in my relationships”,” I want change”, “I’m going to make it happen”! And so we become engrossed in this wonderful feeling that slowly cocoons our whole body in its warmth.

by Dasha Lukiniha

This one can be particularly big when it comes down to chasing after the things we really want. Have you ever found yourself in a place of deciding to change something in your life, be it making a career change, losing 20 pounds or maybe opening your own business? Feels great in that moment, right? And the anticipation of all the good stuff that will come out of this transition is making you itch to get down to business, right?? And then a day goes by.

Procrastination – a case of laziness or something deeper? Part 2 - On the little monster inside
by Dasha Lukiniha

In my first article on procrastination I focused on a phenomenon of pursuing “fake goals”, i.e. the ones aren’t authentic to us (please find it earlier in the feed on this page). So if we find ourselves habitually postponing something, this can often mean that we don’t want to do it at all.

Procrastination - a case of laziness or something deeper? Part 1- On our "good to haves", "musts" and unicorns
by Dasha Lukiniha

I used to call myself a serial procrastinator putting some things off until very last minute, causing me to wreck havoc in my schedule, airline tickets costing way more than they should and some very angry friends at times.

Are you your own priority?
by Dasha Lukiniha

Today I’d like to share with you a story of evolution of what putting yourself in the back seat looks versus making yourself your own priority. I hope you find these tips useful.

Throughout my teenage years I always thought I make myself my absolute priority, I mean why wouldn’t I, since it’s my life, right? I always had an impression of myself as someone who knows what they want and goes for it.

Finding Values And Needs
by Ignas Genys

Have you ever felt the load of important existential questions piling up at the back of your mind, when all of a sudden you find yourself stood in pause watching the answers one after another crop up in front of your eyes? I felt that way one day when I was staring at the wall with a bunch of posters at the ICF Lithuania Conference in Vilnius.

Inside Out – With A Little Help From Your Emotions
by Ignas Genys

I watched a cartoon the other day which surprisingly got me thinking, and even more so, wanting to write about it. The film was called “Inside Out”. It was about our emotions.

I am learning to be aware of my own emotions during my work in emotional support and the non-violent communication practices.

I Am You
by Serene Martin

So much of pain exists in this world because of the sense of separation we feel between us and everything else. This one was written to inspire us to feel connected .


I am the taste of coffee on your tongue and the glass which holds it against your lips
I am the rage of the storm and the calm of its eye
I am the blade of the knife and the energy with which it cuts
I am the wetness of raindrops and the burn of cigars
I am the green of the grass and the transparency of air
I am the curve of your smile and the depth of your remorse
I am your friend and the friend of your enemy
I am what I am and I am you.

Because We Can Change
by Serene Martin


This goes out to everyone I love. Because we can change….

When I stopped believing in luck, I was no longer a victim of circumstance

When I started looking for ways to celebrate each day no matter what happened, I was no longer trapped in my past memories

When I tried to transform the anger and fear I carried in my heart to acceptance and love, I began to breathe more easily

When I chose to eat clean, my body began to heal itself

When I followed my heart, making the right decisions came easily to me

When I accepted that everyone is on their own path no matter how much I may disagree with them, my own path lit up more clearly for me beneath my feet

When I gave up dwelling on things I could not change, more things started changing for me

When I chose to believe that all the right resources will show up for me when I needed them, they did

When I released the things that I no longer needed in life, I gained the experiences that I desired instead

When I believed with all my heart that the same force of life, which breathed life into me, was on my side, it empowered and protected me wherever I went.

Edge of the Cliff
by Serene Martin

There will come a time when we will need to step over the edge of the cliff of certainty

Where we feel we have extinguished all resources we have grown to rely upon in our spirits

We must believe one of two things will happen:

Angels we never knew we had will catch our fall

Or we will learn to fly

If you really love yourself, dream big.
by Serene Martin


"I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realised, than lord among those without dreams and desires."

-Kahlil Gibran-

Throughout my life I have certainly done things I have enjoyed doing most of the time (thank god for that).
