Is Dubai good for living, Natalia?
As everything in life, this strongly depends on what is important to you, what kind of job you have and how you would like to live.
When I moved to the United Arab Emirates 10 years ago, I absolutely loved every single bit of Dubai. 10 years ago I worked for somebody, I had different priorities and targets in life. I spent my days in a different way and I was in a phase of my life in which I needed to build a solid foundation for an international career.
Today, 10 years later, I work for myself, different things excite me and my overall perspective on life has tremendously changed. Today, I look at Dubai in a total different light.
Many people I know they still love Dubai, many other people I know decided that it doesn’t serve them anymore.
Does Dubai still serve me? That is one of the reasons why I am currently spending two months all across Europe. I want to understand how living in countries like Spain, Malta or Sweden would be like.
I will share my decision with you in August or September this year. Stay tuned... What about you? Do you live and work in Dubai? Would you love to live and work here?

I don’t know where I would be without this woman. I’ve never met her, but she has had a profound influence on me in my roles as a mom, social worker, and nonprofit leader. She is helping me become a better human. Thank you Brené 🙏 @brenebrown #risingstrong#gratitude
#liveeveryquestion Strong but so tired tonight. Living everyday as if it were your last can take you into some unchartered territories within yourself. I used to be so scared of them, but now, there’s a powerful urgency to chase those things. To live all the moments that make me smile or laugh or feel life. There will always be questions, unknowns but just opening your mind and your heart can liberate and free you to be exactly whatever and whoever you are, if even just for a few moments. You only have one chance to do your life, there are no redos and I don’t want to miss any of it. Even with all the unanswered questions 🦋— I would like to beg you... to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything...live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers.— #findinggodintheruins#risingstrong#mentalhealth#doyou#healthyhabits#personaldevelopment#nightimereading#nerd#bookworm#personalgrowthbooks#brenebrown#deepthoughts#soul#findyourstrong
🤷🏼♀️What do you see in this pic?!?!🤷🏼♀️ Sweaty people working out in the streets of Indianapolis?!?! Wondering what the crap we are doing?!?!
I see a TRIBE of 15,000 other coaches that WILL NOT let me give up on myself!!!
This weekend...I’ve FOUND myself again!
And because THESE people stand BEHIND me, I can get back on my own two feet!!!

“No one else has access to the world you carry within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it. No one else can feel your life the way you feel it. Thus, is it impossible to ever compare two people because each stands on different ground. When you compare yourself to others, you are inviting envy into your consciousness; it can be a dangerous and destructive guest.”
Consider these #wisewords from one of my all-time favorite writers, the late John O’Donohue a public service announcement. We can all fixate on what we don’t do “right” in our #smallbiz or find a million examples of other business owners who seem to “have it all”. Yet, as the #quote above states, we are all so unique and different that #comparison is a completely pointless exercise
You’re doing your biz in the way you know how. And there’s no one else in the world who does it quite like you do. Stand proud in that.

What an amazing day sharing Herd Wisdom with the #brenebrown#DaringWay Wild & Whole Hearted Texas members. Our barn art wall now has some fabulous reminders of how to walk with and be in our Strong Back, Soft Front, Wild Heart.
Who are you? .
Who does God say you are? And how does your self narrative fall short of God's narrative for you?
Maybe take some time His weekend to expose the lies you tell yourself and compare them to the truth of who you are in Christ.

Your story is unique AND your are not alone! 🙇♀️ I've gotten the chance to talk with a handful of women on the phone this week about their bodies, their hopes, fears and dreams. And almost everyone said the same thing, "I think it's probably just me." IT'S NOT! So many women (myself included) wonder the same things: Am I seen? Do I have value? Am I beautiful? Do I matter? Am I allowed to take care of myself or am I just here for everyone else?⠀
Sitting here @b3coffee on a sunny Saturday and thinking about it all. Here is the truth… You are seen! You are worth more than you can even imagine! You matter deeply and (whether you feel like it or not) you have something of immense value to offer to this world. And yes, you are allowed to take time for yourself. To truly shine, you must.⠀
We hide our deepest fears because we feel ashamed of them. We feel like if we show up raw, as we really are that we won’t be enough. The truth is that when we show up with our true lives, our true stories, our real fears and our truest dreams, we find freedom. Freedom in who we are, freedom to tackle our fears and freedom in knowing that we are surrounded by a world full of women who have fears, dreams and hopes just like us!⠀
What are your fears? What are your dreams? Will you share them? Will you be brave? This world needs you to show up fully. Come on ladies. You’re stunning! Let it shine! Join our community on Facebook. Be brave. It’s time to start!
. let some room for negative thoughts & feelings . if you don't give them their own designated place they will spread out their tendrils all over your head . give them room to exist, acknowledge their existence, respect their right to be there . you can't get rid of them but you can be at peace with them .
. the story of today is that my almost two year old wanted to ride the nostalgic merry-go-round at our hotel . and she did . and then she wanted more . it was an early noon, the air humid and salty, sun blazing intensely . I was thirsty and tired, I didn't slept well this night . but she is too little to ride alone and so I was riding this goddamed thing with her . feeling the heat and all the feelings . the anger and the sweat running along my neck . the metallic music, squealing kids at the playground and frustration building up to a staccato in my heart and my head . my little one shouting “no !“ every time I asked her if she had enough . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
. the story of today is that among all this feelings there were this one flash of memory that came unexpectedly and was so very welcome . the truth is, growing up I also obsessively loved the old-fashioned merry-go-round at out local park . I even had my “own“ horse there . and as the carousel kept turning I found myself smiling and finally enjoying the ride . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
. this memory didn't swipe all the negative feelings and thoughts completely away . but it made it all better . the story of today is that without all the negativity, the good would not come to me . and this memory would be lost, found only on the yellowed pages of my childhood photo book .

🔥 // Burn, baby, burn. I have been running into the fire for all of my adult life. I’m a fire sign, after all, with a self-proclaimed phoenix spirit animal, so of course it seems warm and cozy up in those flames. But every time I get burned there’s a war between me and me. No burn, no learn, I told myself recently. But I was crushed and hurt and didn’t want to hear it. I had to hold myself and tell me it was okay, of course she was hurt, but she would feel better and rise stronger like always. And look, I said, something shifted this time. When you ran into the fire you knew that it was going to burn you. That awareness is growth and I’m just as proud of that as I am my continued resilience and bravery, because courage isn’t the lack of fear it’s being afraid and doing it anyway—living anyway, loving anyway, showing up anyway. I learned a new mantra yesterday from Barry Michels on the @goop podcast: bring it on, I love fear, fear sets me free. So bring on the fire. Keep doing the things that scare you. cc: @iditknaan and @katherinehanes for loving support and kindness #blessed#tribe#nativemanifestationtribe
