Who are you?
I’m Flora. A vagabonding, food loving, yoga practicing mountain girl with a deep inner calm and strength.
What is happiness?
I am still trying to find out. Each day, I write down three happiness-triggers from the day before. I know it’s inside me most of the time, a deep feeling of contentment. A feeling of being, right here, right now, I wouldn’t want to change a thing. It’s about being present and conscious. I love being on my own, but shared happiness is more happiness. Discoveries, nature, movement, food, people influence my happiness.
What are your biggest dreams?
Traveling the world, gathering and sharing knowledge. Living in harmony with nature, being outdoors. Having a sustainable guest house in a permaculture garden with a yoga space close to the sea and the mountains, integrating the local community.
What is important?
Nature, respecting it, living with it. Listening to my inner voice. Connections with likeminded people. Following my own path. Harmony. Sharing. Feeding my body with wholesome food, water, love and laughter. Touch. Radiating love and happiness to positively influence those around me.
What do you believe in?
Love, nature, synchronicity.
What are you afraid of?
I’m trying to not be afraid. Every challenge is a teacher. I try to overcome my fears and I’ve had no regrets so far. I was afraid of skiing narrow, deep couloirs. I did it and really enjoyed it. I was afraid of traveling on my own, now I’m moving to the 2nd place I’ve never been before within one year. I’m afraid of losing beloved people, but relationships change, people come, stay or go. I’m afraid of being hurt emotionally, but I try to put myself out there and love unconditionally. I’m afraid of being hurt physically, so sometimes I sleep (half awake) with my knife in my hand. I’m afraid of having to give up my dream travel life, but I just keep going. I am afraid sometimes. But I live to the fullest.
What inspires you?
First times. There is hardly anything more inspiring and nourishing than experiencing something for the first time. Nature. She never fails to amaze me, be it birds singing in the morning, flowers blooming, wind whispering, water running. People. Connecting with souls to share and create dreams, ideas, visions is one of my biggest inspirations. Movement. My daily yoga practice helps me to make space for more inspiration.
What would you change?
In general- trust and love more. For myself- trust and love more.
Are you happy?
So happy! I don’t even find words for if.
Thank you so much for this Flora, and I hope we will meet again, somewhere in the world, to share a practice, to talk under the stars.
