about the ability to step back

everyone who is not a 100% happy – including myself – is not doing something because of judgment of somebody else. not being a 100% happy was the key to leave my marriage – and yes, being unhappy was reason enough to leave. some said it was ego, others crazy and some others mentioned some other shit. actually ? I did not care and I still not do. I care the most about myself first. that’s egoistic ? hell it is and for some good reasons. how in the whole univers can you make your world around happy if you aren’t ? mission impossible. the day I left was my biggest breakthrough I took a step or even 3 backwards – I did not care – as I was happy from the insight out. I heard my heartbeat again.

having the ability stepping back, is the key to real happiness.

I was the cleaning woman years back, for many business ladies, I organized their house, their laundry and shopping. I took care of their dog, changed beds and made lunch. I also took care of elder couple once a week as she was sick, not able to take care about anything as the house was huge.

I never ever thought it was a shitty time or that I wasn’t worth it. I always knew, this builds my fundament to grow and to appreciate every and each single step toward my own vision week by week, month by month, year by year. If you have been there – literally nothing can break you and nothing can scare you. these years working as a housekeeper, next to my normal other official job, taking care of two children and trying to find out where my passion is hiding I learned to love myself and be grateful for my abilities to create a lot out of nothing.

stepping back is humility. it opens space for your strength and it leads to unconditional love.

LePetitStudio by Michelle Petit jgd34497_michellep_2015 about the ability to step back

striving for your own happiness is the best trip you can book in your life. direction one way!

stop caring what other think, go your own way, change your home, your job or your partner if it doesn’t make you sincerly happy and keep in mind if others start to attack you in one or another way it’s always a reflection of their own unhappiness.

life is too short to listen to other opinions. step back if you think you should turn around. step back, move into a smaller apartment. sell or donate your stuff and go for a weekend to verona instead.

declutter from the insight out is nothing else then stepping back and get rid of stuff which holds you back from doing whatever your heart beats for.

open up the shop you always wanted to have – if it doesn’t work out, at least you can say, you gave it a try.

start to write this book – if its not gonna be published you left a legacy anyway.

invite your neighbours and get to know them – who knows what they been through.

stepping back is nothing else then declutter your soul and will lead to the fulfillment of your heart trust me I’ve been there and I booked this trip!

Stepping back for me for many years in the past created the craft to communicate my vision to this wonderful world. laugh at me – I will smile back from the stage I am on – while talking about this post.

if you would have to leave at 66….

…isn’t crazy ? if you have to leave at 66….

If you can’t get rid of an idea, Life tell’s you to do so…
I can’t let go of one specific idea.

Beside of transforming homes into castles I want to become an author as well.

Since many years I started to write. Write down my story. Of course this sounds absolutely crazy – but one of my very close friends told me more than once;

hey Michelle, you should go viral with your blog posts. Okay….well maybe I should start them. One of my epic and most emotional stories I will share tonight only with you.

It is one of a kind story.
A story, where you should get some tissues. I do not tipe this to attract more attention, but, I know, if you can relate to the story, it will touch or even hit you.

The waves of the ocean came in and the sand swalloed them. It was more or less 12 years ago. I was on the beach. My toes were covered by black sand, the sun downer in my hand, my mobile phone had 9% of battery. A few minutes later my stomach told me; “Michelle, this is serious and no good news”. I had to agree. No doubts. I felt aweful.

Breast cancer.
At 55.
My mom.
Our mom.

She did everything for everyone.

She = happy, a beautiful woman from inside out, a person to love.
Her life purpose ? Satisfaction. For everyone.

Everyone around her has to be happy, satisfaid and have eaten enough. Italian heritage…pizza and pasta for everyone.

Before she ever thought about herself, she thought about anyone around her.

She was the one of a kind.
The one you would have wished for.
All at once.
A friend.
A Mum.
A loving wife.

… and the most wonderful grand mum you ever imagine.

Never ever she would have admitted her pain.
Her mission was clear.
Life has to be lived within happiness – whatever the price would be.
She paid the highest price. Her life.

I know not everyone would agree on this post, unless her.
She would have loved it.
Or in my world; “she loves it, because she never really left. She just transformed into another space”.

3 weeks before she passed away I had the most wonderful and most honest and scareful talk with her.
Covered by cozy warm covers beside a glass of italian white wine ( Pinot grigio, to be precise ) she was on her prefederd place on her hurrible red couch, where I asked her upfront about death and change in life.

I wanted to be clear as I knew there will be never another opportunity to ask her this question in this clear athmosphere.

Mummy, you rather prefer to die, then to change anything in your life – correct ?



She looked at me, took her glass.

Yes. I am afraid to change. I do not want to change anything as as I do not know what will be. I stick to the facts I see with my eyes.


As a first born, there were no words for a “correct” reply.

She passed away three weeks later and she was upset. Dissapointed. Sad. She was not ready for this change into another “world” and wasn’t ready to leave.

Her frustration was obvious.
I open up the door into her hospital room and the first thing she told me; „this is absolutely not what I was looking for, this is shit. I will not make it, can you take care of everything please….

No one else got this message. Just me.

Anything else than a „YES of course“ would have been beyond.


Today I know why.

She would have loved my mission. I help other women to trust themselve more then ever!
She was and is proud of me.

I am more than grateful to have experienced her love, her courage, her drive, her action taking mentality and her LOVE in my life.

She was this Mum, you would imagine in Hollywood movies. The one, who can read your mind even if you do not want to, the best Mum ever and if she can read this – she would send me a text message with; so fantastic what you do!

My business is all about change. Most of you changing from outside – but there is a change inside which will take place!

Proud of what I am doing and of my community.

I love it. It smells good.!Looks beautiful.
Eucalyptus is well-known, its fresh, pointed, camphor-like scent often occurs in mouthwashes, cold remedies and in the sauna. Due to its intensity, eucalyptus oil is ideal for cleaning room air and makes it easier to breathe when it comes to colds. Eucalyptus oil is often used as an additive to sauna infusion, it activates the respiration and thus promotes the oxygenation of all body cells.

The name of the eucalyptus comes "from the Greek and can be translated as" well covered ". Eucalyptus is the staple food for the Australian koala bear, in fact, it is believed that they eat nothing else.
Eucalyptus is growing now not only in Australia, but also in Algeria, Egypt, South America, India and the Iberian Peninsula, he is now grown. There are fifty varieties in the Mediterranean alone.

The eucalyptus tree is one of the tallest trees that grow on earth, its roots grow deep into the earth until they find their deepest water veins. This ability to extract water from the soil was previously exploited in areas where malaria often occurred. Because the tree drained water from the ground, so that the mosquitoes that transmit the malaria could no longer lay their eggs. He got the name Fieberbaum because of that.

The aborigines of Australia, as well as the colonial rulers who settled in Australia, saw eucalyptus as a kind of all-purpose remedy.

The yellowish essential oil is still considered one of the best remedy for many ailments, especially when it comes to respiratory diseases. Each of us probably knows the eucalyptus drops that you take on coughing. The eucalyptus oil is antiseptic, so it helps against pathogens. It is probably even one of the strongest antiseptic agents that grow naturally.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

I’ve got influenced from a wonderful lifestyle blog which I follow @ifthewhinesoiwine thank you Jennifer!
I took a few sentence out of her latest blog post because it just fits the mood of today.

Yesterday eve I worked on my idea I have in mind since a couple of years, never came up with because I was afraid of being judged.

Some of you followed me since I started to turn homes into castle in June 2019.

I am a Member of Somba, the Online MBA Program for women entrepreuneurs, where I pushed myself go one step further; I joined MOMENTUM.

SOMBA Momentum gives more support and accountability than a mastermind program and still has a built in mastermind experience. It’s the perfect program for those who have started to make money online but don’t have a solid six-figure online business yet and want to be inspired, think big and take action.
Well yes me and my online business aren’t there yet – but I will be.
In this program I am surrounded with wonderful women all over the world, we met in Zurich @SigrunLive, we talk to eachother without crossing borders once a week, we get inspiration from success stories and my mentor and founder of @somba Sigrun, started her journey 5 years ago, today she can call herself a self made millionaire and from many points of view she is the most successful woman in online business in Europe. She is thriving for her boldest project the selfmadesummit event in June 2020 in Iceland where my family and myself will join her and 1000 of others.

If she can do it – I can too.

I am a pattern breaker. You know why?

If I would have listend to all the arguments why I should not do this and online business is crap, I even was asked; can you earn money with this idea” – well you bet. “You wont’t be successful with your idea, you better keep on doing things as before, you have bills to pay” – oh really ?! Do I ?! Phew well I got over it.

These people are comfortzone believer and stuck in very old patterns.

And I am dedicated to break them.

I will be the first self made millionaire from scratch, not only because for the money, but to show the world; if you keep believing in yourself, if you go your way, if you set intentions, if you go for what makes you happy and if you have a vision you can be the CHANGE MAKER and leave a legacy on how to break patterns and live your life however YOU want.

Patterns we have in our and like every other family as well. If I would go up and ask; Do you see a pattern ? I bet no one would dare to raise their hand to agree on the fact we have. We all have these unspoken subconcious envious patterns mostly served on a silver plate decorated with a faulse smile. And they are delegating our lifes each day – because we are afraid to listen and do what our heart is telling us, each and every day.

Reading a blog post I had to agreed on the following facts;

“I’m too much for some people, too loud, too unprofessional, too dedicated ( well, how can you be too dedicated, just asking myself…, but that’s what I heard).

To others I am career driven and a control freak, a planner.

Do you see a trend here? I’am always going to be too much for some and not enough for others.

As women we worry too much about what others people think or what they think they might thinking. We create judgments in our own head. Gosh.

We waist so much time worrying about what others people’s opinions of us are.

We try to fit into everyones ideas and holding back our own desires, way too long, way too much.

But for whom and for what?


Once you’ve decided not to follow the crowd and go your own way – do it with confidence.

It’s your decision and your journey.

Stop comparing yourself.
Stop doubting yourself.
stop beat yourself up for things you think other expect.
Stop doubting your own decisions.
Stop looking over your shoulder.
Stop trying to please everyone else.

Because, people? Well, people are always going to have an opinion. I’m just at the point in my life where I can finally say – LET THEM.

People aren’t always going to agree with you, in fact, some people aren’t going to like you for no other reason than because they can.
Is it fair? No.
But it’s OK.
Don’t be afraid to go against the tide; to do your own thing without question or hesitation.

Do the thing that sets your soul on fire, regardless of what others think.

Be who you were made to be, not who others want you to be.

Because you’re never going to be everyone’s cup of tea, just like I’m not.

But, those people?

They aren’t your people.
