Hi, I’m Raluca.

Writer. Hugger. Lifelong learner.

This is a part of my life manifesto so far. If you’re taking just one thing from here, this should be it:

Start with self-acceptance.

Choose compassion.

Stop watching the news.

Stop listening to the news.

Go and talk directly with your neighbors.

Listen. Really listen. To yourself. To other people.

Acknowledge what is.

Accept what is.

If you don’t like it,

See if you can do anything about it.

Then do something.

Assess the new situation.

Rinse and repeat.

It all comes from your inner world.

Welcome to planet Earth.


So…now that you’ve read this, let’s continue the “about me” part.
I love inspiring stories, living from the heart, hugging and insanely dark chocolate.

Oh, and avocado, yoga, and walking barefoot…and just being in nature.


My educational background is in communication & public relations and psychology.


I’ve been writing since I was 7, scribbling my thoughts in little notebooks that I was carefully hiding from my family’s eyes.


Writing has been my companion, and my secret helper to get through the hard times.



I started this blog over a year three years ago, with a burning desire to help and inspire those who are walking the path of self-growth, self-discovery.

I believe in the healing power of sharing our difficult experiences and how we overcame them.
Because it gives someone going through a similar experience a little breath of air when under the water.
You know, those:

“So I’m not the only one going through this and there are others who have made it on the other side” kind of thoughts.


On the other side, I believe in the power of sharing our success stories.
Not to brag, but to show others they can do it too.
For the “If he or she did this, then I can make it too!” type of motivation.
If you feel urged to:
follow your path from the heart and
create a passionate life for yourself while having a positive impact in the world

Then this blog is for you.


The posts and the videos here are a reflection of my personal growth journey.
So the topics change and evolve as I go along.

I usually publish once a week. Sometimes I publish every day like when I started a 30 days challenge.


Sometimes I don’t publish anything for weeks in a row, cause I am too caught up in my life changes.

Or because I sometimes feel like I have nothing useful to say. But then I get back up and continue writing.
