01ABOUT MARIE

Das bin ich. Mitte Zwanzig und trotz längerer Aufenthalte in den USA eigentlich im schönen Hamburg zu Hause. Nach meinem dualen Studium in Business Administration befinde ich mich nun in den Endzügen meines Master-Studiums, für das ich bis Anfang diesen Jahres noch in Brooklyn, New York leben durfte. Klein Marie allein in der großen weiten Welt. Eigentlich nichts Neues für mich, aber dieses halbe Jahr in New York hat etwas mit mir gemacht. Ich habe einfach gemacht. Ich, der absolute Kopfmensch, ständig am Abwägen, ob richtig oder falsch, habe einfach mal losgelassen und geschaut, was da so auf mich wartet. Nach einem nicht ganz so einfachen Erwachsenwerden sowie jahrelanger Krankheit, die ich leider bis heute noch nicht hundertprozentig loslassen konnte, habe ich mich getraut, mein Glück selbst in die Hand zu nehmen. Und es hat sich gut angefühlt. Lange habe ich geglaubt, dass andere Personen für mein Glück – “my bliss” – verantwortlich sind. Vor allem aber im letzten Jahr habe ich realisieren können, dass dem nicht so ist. Und so komme ich zu dem Grund, warum Ihr das hier überhaupt liest. Urban Bliss.

ABOUT URBAN BLISS

“Bliss is that deep, fulfilling, sustainable, driving need you have. That thing that is the true ‘you’. Bliss is your life’s purpose. Bliss is the pathway to happiness. Happiness is a state of mind; following your bliss is how you get there.”

Auf Urban Bliss geht es daher um “following my bliss” und damit um all die Dinge, für die ich in den letzten Jahren eine tiefe Leidenschaft entwickelt habe und die heute wichtige, nicht mehr weg zudenkende Bestandteile meines Lebens sind: intensiver Kraftsport (den ich mittlerweile zum Beruf gemacht habe und neben meiner Tätigkeit im Marketing als Personal Trainer in Hamburg arbeite), gesunde, abwechslungsreiche Ernährung und die Welt bereisen.

Und meinem verborgenem Talent zu rappen. Inwiefern das hier Raum finden wird, sollte ich aber besser nochmal überlegen.

Ich freue mich, wenn ich Euch auf diesen “journey” mitnehmen darf und mit meinen Beiträgen etwas Inspiration geben kann.

Cheers!

Marie

 


 

ABOUT MARIE

That’s me. Twenty-something and despite many longer stays in the US actually at home in beautiful Hamburg, Germany. After my dual studies in Business Administration, I am now about to finish my master studies for which I was lucky enough to live in Brooklyn, New York until the beginning of this year. Marie all alone in the Big Apple. Actually, nothing new for me, but in some way these six months changed me. Marie, the over thinker, just let go. After a not-so-easy growing up as well as a long-lasting illness, that I have not been able to fully recover from up until this day, I dared to take my life into my own hands. And oh, it felt good! For way too many years I believed that others are responsible for my happiness – “my bliss”. Yet, in the last year, I was luckily able to realize that I was wrong. And this brings me to the very reason, why y’all are reading this. Urban Bliss.

ABOUT URBAN BLISS

“Bliss is that deep, fulfilling, sustainable, driving need you have. That thing that is the true ‘you’. Bliss is your life’s purpose. Bliss is the pathway to happiness. Happiness is a state of mind; following your bliss is how you get there.”

So, Urban Bliss is about “following my bliss” and hence, about all the things, that I have developed a huge passion for within the last years and by now are so important to me, that I can’t imagine life without them anymore: weightlifting (which has actually become part of my profession since I am working as a Personal Trainer in Hamburg next to my job in Marketing), healthy and well-balanced eating, and travelling the world.

And my long hidden talent to rap. Yet, I should probably reconsider how present this should be on here.

I am really excited to take you on this “journey” with me and to hopefully inspire you with some of my posts.

Cheers!

Marie
