Little gems of inspiration & motivation in daily life

Very often when we read or share our experience we find that we are not alone, that our experience is validated, someone can offer a solution or can inspire and motivate us to do new things, to do old things in a new way.  In one sentence, to live our lives happy, successful, and to be seen and heard.

Little gems of inspiration & motivation in daily life

Very often when we read or share our experience we find that we are not alone, that our experience is validated, someone can offer a solution or can inspire and motivate us to do new things, to do old things in a new way.  In one sentence, to live our lives happy, successful, and to be seen and heard.

NATTER with NINA

The purpose of this blog is to be a sharing platform for little portions of inspiration and creativity experienced in our everyday life.

Recently I watched a YouTube video. A well-known author just heard that the established retailers rejected the distribution of her new book. There she was – angry, frustrated, feeling undervalued and disappointed and at the same time trying to redirect her negative feelings into something positive – confident that she will not give up, that she likes what she does, that the rejection is a blessing in disguise and something better will come of it. She was so openly vulnerable and so sincerely trying to cope with the non-acceptance – something that we all have experienced in our lives,

What strikes me was the sensational comfort in the realisation that she was not alone, I felt so close to her because she was part of the same club – the club of human beings. We all fight similar battles and we all have similar victories.

The idea of sharing the experiences – good or bad – and turning them into something mentally stimulating and uplifting is very dear to my heart and a great source of inspiration.

Based on this, the blog has major themes – happiness, success, visuality and voice. Of course, these subjects overlap, the boundaries between them are vague so I encourage you to check the sections for new posts regularly. The aim is to post weekly and I also will invite guest bloggers on different subjects.

Everyone can leave a comment that is respectful and not offensive.
