For me, in our “new normality” with corona, every day is a new challenge.
One day it is safe; the next day, the opposite, and the effects I am facing are
In the beginning, it shook me a lot: stress, heavy thoughts, confusion.
Last month I was in Berlin; I hadn’t been there for two years.
It felt great from one side: being in an open place, seeing friends, restaurants,
having a joyful moment, everything is normal! But at the same time, the minute I
entered a bus, standing with people that are almost stapled on top of each other,
trying to go and see places in time-slots, etc., was affecting my experience and
that reminded me of the whole mess we’re in.
The thing I learned, and it came very strong in the last two years, is that I can’t control my feelings – the emotions I feel – but I can give my thoughts and my actions a direction.
I am thinking a lot about being in the present moment and seeing how many
emotions are in this, what it means to be present, not being controlled by

Connecting, Sharing, Becoming
There are so many shifts happening in the world recently that will affect us – at least, it feels so – as it seems that the world is re-shaping in many ways.
But this is also highly interesting, also on an emotional level. Emotions affect how we see the world, experience it and communicate with others.
In my work, I am reflecting on it, and the following quote stuck with me: Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else (Leonardo da Vinci).
While we can reflect and connect, we can understand that these experiences are kindred.
I invite you to share and comment on ”how you feel”?
