Your life is as good as your mindset.

I learn by trying new things

In life like this, where we have so many opportunities it’s nonsense not to use them. I always think – how can you speak about something if you have not tried it at least once. Since childhood, I watched movies about climbing. A few years ago I went climbing a rock wall, you probably know it as bouldering. And I have to say – I loved it. For half a year every Sunday morning, I went wall climbing. I have never been afraid of highs, actually, I enjoy them. Due to different coincidences, I stopped wall climbing for some time. But this summer I went outside climbing with one of the best Latvian alpinists, he got me so inspired again that I just wanted to go back and continue.

During climbing lessons my favorite feeling is freedom. Freedom when you are just hanging in ropes, feeling relaxed, and being in this moment. My thoughts are right here, right now. They are not wondering about anything else. Just about where to put my leg, which rock should I grab with my hand and so go on. The mind focuses 110%. And actually, this helped me with the violin. I learned how to focus my thoughts just on one thing. When you are working like that the progress develops much faster.

I know, this is not wall climbing, but still climbing 🙂

It’s ok to not know and ask for help

I am always sure for one thing – you can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped. But if someone is asking for help, I think you should do whatever is in your power. Being younger I thought that I am a strong, independent woman and I can do anything by myself. And here is the thing – I really can, but I don’t want to. I am still strong, but asking for help doesn’t make me any weaker. A half a year ago I started to go to a psychotherapist. I chose Gestalt therapy, I just felt closer to the theory and methods. There is nothing bad to go to therapy and actually I wished that everyone would have a chance and courage to do it. Yes, you will cry the first time. But also that is okay! The reason why I went to therapy is I wanted to get some new perspectives. I wanted to hear a side view of things. And I received it.

If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.
