…on Living a Life You Love


My name is Monica, and I am a Student of Life, Coach and Author on all things to do with finding your way, making easeful life changes and living a life you love.

I believe we all have a desire to live an authentic, purposeful, joyful life that feels right for who we are.

I myself have been on quite a search and made many changes on my way to find and create the life I love. I have also been a facilitator, coach and consultant of change professionally for nearly twenty years. (Read my story)

That’s why I know that life isn’t a seamless, linear, upwards curve all the time. Sometimes we can get stuck – even when things look good on the surface – just knowing that what we have isn’t right for us anymore. Longing for something different, yet not knowing what. Wanting to make changes, yet unsure how, or where to start. And getting increasingly overwhelmed, dissatisfied, frustrated, unmotivated, disconcerted, worried, scared or stressed.

As a student of life, I’ve been there myself, a number of times, and I expect to experience that place again, as I move forward in life. As a coach, my passion is to help you find your way if you’re stuck. And as an author, I share my experience, knowledge, and the bit of wisdom about life and change that I’ve acquired in half a century of being on this earth.

I’ve also found my way through those stuck places, to discover my calling and live a life I love: not perfect, not all-singing-all-dancing, not challenge-free – but a life that’s utterly mine, and right for who I truly am. And in which I’m happy from within.

So if you’re stuck and unsure about what next right now, please don’t feel bad: Because it seems to me that it’s exactly that which often propels us to seek positive change in our life and change our life for the better! 🙂

Welcome to my blog – or, our blog, rather!

My intention with this blog is to inspire, encourage and support you – and as many people as possible, really! –  in getting unstuck, making positive life changes and living a life they love.

Here, I share real-life stories, ideas, experience, practical strategies and resources with you, which you can easily put into practice in your everyday life, to make it better and more yours. My aim is to inspire you to observe your life, your thoughts and your feelings, becoming aware of where you’re at, what’s important to you, and what you really want.

That way, we can get through the tough times, learn and move our life forward together. We can all feel more purposeful, joyful, vibrant and alive, and live our life more easefully, happily and fully.

Because life isn’t always easy. New crossroads, challenges and questions emerge for all of us all the time. Sharing my reflections helps me get clearer on my own challenges and questions, so I can then help you better. And the more of us are purposefully and joyfully living a life we love, the better a place the world becomes…

I would love for you to get involved, too – reading, commenting, contributing, sharing – so we can make this truly our blog!
