2015 is almost over and we look back on a interesting Year. We had up and downs and here is some more information about what we learned. This quote describes this year perfect: sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.
1. Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
While we so often struggle about buying new things (luxury bags or whatever) we forget to invest in vacation. We had an amazing trip to Berlin and the lago di garda
together and traveled to Santorini, Florida, New York, London and Vienna. Travel is the best way to open your mind to new inspiration, to meet new people and cultures and to energize yourself.
2. Focus on the present and the past will take care of itself.
What will happen tomorrow? what has happend before...there are so many thoughts about what will be and what has been, that we forget to focus on the present. If we try to life more in the present and to enjoy this, we are more satisfied and happy. We can't change the past, but we live in the moment. Moving one..is sometimes the only way of saying "good bye".
3. Surround yourself with good people.
Maybe this is something for your free time and not for business (there we can't always choose) but because of this fact it's so important to invest in trustfull friends, who worth the time. Nobody is too busy, it's just a matter of priorities. Friends with visions and people who are happy for your success and support are very important for the way to the top. Friends will always be ready to pat you on the back or praise you, but never dare to criticize you or give you honest feedback. Best friends, however, are there when you might have to confront a problem or get a nasty looking lesion on your back treated. They will tell you straight on that you are going down the wrong road.
4. Do it now. Sometimes "later" becomes "never".
Yes it's not easy. If you have only one thing on your to do list, all we can say it's congratulations. If you need to combine work, university, friends, a shaped body and of course vacation and enough time for yourself you need to priorize things and in the end it's all about one thing.

5. Love hurts, but it worth it.
Falling in love is nothing more romantic than a cocktail of brain chemicals we get addicted to for 18 to 30 months. After this we either break up or stay with our partners (out of habit) says a research from America. Hot on the heels of this comes another bit of research from Italy, saying that people in love have the same symptoms as those with obsessive compulsive disorder: they take senseless risks, do crazy things and have endless thoughts about their beloved ones. So is it still worth falling in love? Yes, yes and yes again. So those lovely dreamy initial feelings fade. We all knew this. It doesn't mean your love is less valid. Being in love means that the world, for a while at least, is a different, magical place with a secret only the two of you hold.
6. Nutella is still not healthy, but we need "soulfood" for happiness reasons.
Clean eating, Superfood and Avocado a trend we love and to have a happy life, we need to eat good things. BUT if we want to eat chocolate, pizza,
WHATEVER in a normal regular way, we don't need to call this "cheat meal" or "cheat day". Whatever makes you happy, will not make you fat and we can recommend to enjoy the things you
7. Barbie loves boxing. Try new things.
What have you done in 2015 for the first time? Boxing was sth completly new. At the beginning we thought it's nothing for girls, but we are tough enough. You have to be concetrate and it's the best way to exploit ever. More here. Sth to be continued in 2016...
8. Stop buying things, you are not 100% sure about.
We have so much stuff we don't need or we already have. Just ask yourself: Do I really need this? More is less and we should not forget this advice (even when it's SALE everywhere).
9. Work on your strenghts and not on your weaknesses.
It starts during out school and contious in university and within our work life. We always want to improve what we
can't do instead of continue in what we are good. It's a risk and not everyone will be satisfied, but we have to accept that we are human and that everyone is different and that we have different
strenghts. Stay focused on what you can and what you love.
10. Shit happens. Life goes on.
