Gratitude // Typography Branding

Gratitude became very important to me therefore I love reminding myself of it. Oh and I also love typography and customising typography like I did here. So much fun for me. I remember when I still studied design I hated everything that had to do with typography and now typography is one of my biggest passions. Seriously I can spend hours just looking at typography on Pinterest and Instagram, I just can’t get enough of it these days and creating and customising typography gives me pure bliss and joy.

So here I am listening to Gabby Bernstein giving a lecture and working on typography - feeling thankful about how far I got already and everything amazing that is going to come soon. I can relate a lot to whenever she talks about leaving the dark and choosing the light. Yes, I have been there as well and I am more than happy that I left everything dark behind, every dark aspect of my life that kept on holding me back, pulled me down and just gave me fear and depression. I can totally relate and I am thankful for choosing better these days and for continuing this journey. I am grateful and I see myself choosing a way similar to hers. Hey, I have been a language teacher for a long time already, so now I might just change my direction in teaching if I decide to follow another path of teaching. So many plans and ideas in my head, oh you can’t imagine.

I feel more creative than ever before in my life and that is such an amazing feeling I can’t get enough of. So dear Universe, I am also grateful and this feeling gives me a real high. Finally I make money in a way I enjoy to work, I work with incredible people now and I love working with them. I am more creative than I had ever been before and I can see how my skills keep on improving constantly. I am so thankful that I decided to go back to design and it really makes me incredibly happy to design, write and to be creative in general. I swapped party nights for spending nights working at my designs and writing and diving into the world of self-development, clearing inner blocks, letting go of resistance and this would have never happened if I had stayed in miserable jobs that took all my energy, time and left no room for creative space.

I am surrounded by amazing people in my life, friends and family and also all the awesome souls who are supporting me online. So I am truly thankful, especially since I know that this is just the beginning after having had a rough start thanks to this system here in Germany that turns self-employment into a real nightmare but I did not give up, I continued fighting and now it is finally starting to pay off and this is just incredible and something to be grateful for.
