Our first nursing is usually provided by a mom who was equipped with many creams, balms, oils, as well as toys, books or songs. Her attention has kept us from the inside and the outside during our childhood years. Growing up, however, we begin to develop a relationship with ourselves and our own bodies.
When the last year begins to turn last leaf (read month), my inner compass always becomes specially alive. That’s when I start doing some kind of revision of past events, the relationships I’m in, the (un) attained goals and desires. I wonder where I am at the moment and where I want to »travel« next year.

My enthusiasm of using reusable, homemade shopping bags is so big, that has become mania. I’m not joking at all. My shoppingbag mania is so funny and practical.
Natural way of living is a simple living. It’s sustainable and minimalistic at the same time. It takes care of nature, ourselves and each other. It takes care with responsibilities. Roussseau would say ‘back to nature’, for instance.
I remembered I did not like much soaps in the past. I did not like the dry feeling on the skin after washing the soap from my body. I usually took it only for handwashing, but still stayed sceptical for my bodywashing. Since that time it has changed a lot in my mind. Good old fashioned soap has become my daily choice.
I learnt to increase awareness of naturalness and simplicity. Firstly, I realised that developing the inner naturalness means being in tune with inner needs and feelings. And secondly, I realised it’s also important not to forget to follow them. This could be sometimes a bigger challange.
