In today's inbox: "Give yourself the space to listen to your own voice—your own soul. Too many people listen to the noise of the world and get lost in the crowd. But YOU can choose differently! Don’t watch too much TV, don’t read every fashion blog, and don’t consume too much mass media news. Find the strength to fill your time with meaningful experiences. The space and time you are occupying at this very moment is LIFE, and if you’re worrying about the Kardashians or Lebron James or some other famous face, then you are disempowered. You’re giving your life away to marketing and media hocus-pocus, which is created by big companies to ultimately motivate you to want to look a certain way and be a certain way. This is absolutely tragic, this kind of thinking! It’s all just a distraction from what is real and good. What is real and good is YOU and your friends and your family, your loves, your highs, your hopes, and your dreams. You know this already! Listen to what your heart is telling you! Eventually, one way or another, you WILL. Because there will inevitably come a day when you’ll finally be wise enough and strong enough to do so."
In summery: I don't care what Kate Middleton or Gigi Hadid or any other famous face wears, eats or buys. While it is hard to avoid the saturation of celebrity media machine mayhem, I do my best to not be a part of the media hocus pocus. It's so much gentler on the mind, spirit and soul.

This is a picture of the cathedral in Klosterneuburg my post isn't supposed to be religious in any way. I just like the sky.
