Let’s talk about periods

ANZEIGE // German version below

Hey my loves! ♥︎

I haven’t posted on here for a while as I am sharing on Instagram daily and write these super long captions on there – but it’s time to reawaken the blog because some topics just need more space! Today I want to talk to you about a very personal subject: periods!

As most of you might know this topic is very close to my heart as I have been struggling with amenorrhea for a while now and still work on getting my period back after having the gynefix copper coil for a few years. The whole healing journey has not only been about detoxing my body and rebalancing my hormones but also about reconnecting to my femininity. I experienced sexual abuse in the past and for me being feminine was subconsciously connected to being (ab)used. After certain traumatic experiences I actually started to completely dissociate from my body and my femininity.

I have been working on untying this and healing this trauma by releasing the painful emotions. The relationship to my body and my femininity has already changed incredibly and I have learned so much in this process. I actually do feel grateful for every chapter of my journey and I know that even (or rather especially) the most challenging experiences have their purpose. It’s part of my mission to turn my pain into medicine for not only myself but others. We can only truly help if we understand suffering – and what I experienced in my life has installed deep empathy and compassion into my being and served as fuel for my mission here…

Here comes the second part of my recap of the bee workshop I attended last month.
After telling you all about wild flowers in my last blogpost it is now time to talk about nesting aids! I was actually surprised how easy it is to give a new home to insects and since it was also so much fun to get active and create something useful with my hands, I would love to encourage you guys to start a DIY project like this as well!

Nachdem ich euch in meinem ersten Blogpost über den “Umtopfen im Kopf” Workshop mit REWE und dem NABU alles zum Thema Wildblumen erzählt habe, folgt heute Teil zwei mit interessanten Fakten und Tipps zum Bau von Nisthilfen.

Dass es so leicht ist, Bienen ein Zuhause zu geben, hat mich total überrascht und da das Ganze auch noch mega viel Spaß gemacht, würde ich euch wirklich von Herzen empfehlen, auch mal so ein DIY-Projekt zu starten! Expertin Dr. Maren Meyer-Grünefeldt von der NABU Umweltpyramide hat uns dazu tolle Anleitungen gegeben, die ich im heutigen Beitrag mit euch teilen werde.

How incredibly important bee activism is became only really apparent to me when I was invited to be a part of the REWE campaign “Let’s give bees a home” and started educating myself properly on this subject. Therefore I am more than happy about this collaboration and for the opportunity to use my platform for such an important cause!!

Wie wichtig das Thema Bienenschutz wirklich ist, wurde mir erst bewusst, als ich mich im Rahmen der Kampagne “Gemeinsam geben wir Bienen ein Zuhause” eingehend damit beschäftigt habe. Aus diesem Grund freue ich mich sehr über diese Kooperation mit REWE und die Möglichkeit, meine Reichweite hier so sinnvoll nutzen zu können und euch auf dieses Thema aufmerksam zu machen.

Did you know that honeybees and wild bees are responsible for at least one in every three mouthfuls you’ll eat today?

Bees pollinate everything from broccoli to watermelon. One third of the agricultural plant production is dependent on the pollination by the bees. How empty would our supermarket shelves bee, when there were no bees? Continue reading
