Like investigative journalism but looking inwards.

Investigative Selfism? What’s That?

That’s a good question! I know it has a weird name! But it’s my platform with various resources that can make our lives – unlike the title of this damn website – less complicated. But only if we seek that meaningful change.

The bad news is that meaningful change is hard.

It requires us to be honest with ourselves, to find that strong WHY behind what we really want to do, and to take uncomfortable action.

It sucks to admit that without new habits, there can’t be a new you.

Without generating energy, it’s hard to move forward.

And if we don’t manage our minds well, life is unnecessarily complicated.

The good news?

It’s very much worth it.

What’s more rewarding than becoming the realest, most authentic YOU that there is?

I am convinced that our journey inwards doesn’t have to be a grim duty.

It can be exciting, it can be fun, and, most importantly, we can do it in great company.

Who am I to be sharing these resources?

My name is Justina and I have started this page in 2011 first as a (young person’s:) travel blog.

It has then turned into “general observations” on life and now, more recently, I’ve turned it into a platform where I share the resources that I myself find insightful, something I wish I had discovered earlier, and something that I want all of my friends to know about.

This desire to embark on a journey inwards partially comes from having understood that I can continue hopping continents and feel all excited about that (coz it IS exciting!), but if I don’t put in the inner work, I’ll be bringing all the same old habits, limiting beliefs, and weak boundaries with me. So…no fun!

Can We Drop One Basic But Important Expectation?

Have you ever assessed your source of unhappiness and found it to be something rather ridiculous?
Even when it’s something real? If we deepen our mindfulness practice – or simply use this reminder – we can experience more freedom and lightness, even when we’re in pain.

What Pride Month Actually Asks From Us

On Pride Month or any other month, I invite you to choose a part of your legacy to be to create a society (a community!) that is a bit more open, a bit more inclusive, and a bit more compassionate. But I hope that legacy involves speaking out for our LGBTQ community. That is nothing “in addition” to our compassion, kindness, and courage. That’s what they look like in action.
