This girl 💕
We are so different. Somehow we found a way to understand each other, to accept the differences and build common things trough our journey. We’re both Portuguese but we met in the Netherlands, on the craziest adventure of our life’s at the time. She’s from Porto, I’m from Lisbon. She’s a Leo, I’m a Cancer. Our backgrounds couldn’t be more diverse. Still, we had (and still have in front of us) so many amazing moments. She knows she can open up to me cuz I will be there for her and I know how hard that is for her. I know I can be vulnerable and ask for her help cuz she will support me and that’s fucking hard for me too.
I needed a piece of you and you needed a piece of me.
We did change a lot since we met and I can only see the positive change.
I’m grateful for you ✨

This picture was taken in 2017, one of our first pictures together ✨
Our life’s were so crazy at that time.. we had crazy jobs, we were living with loads of crazy people and going trough major obstacles.
One thing I will never forget is the support we gave to each other. We stand side by side. If there was something wrong, we would just have a talk and things always seemed to get brighter. I’m so grateful that I met you, Arturs, mom.. somehow, it feels like I’m part of the family. You’re my big brother and if something happens I know you’ll be there.
We had no idea about the great things ahead of us... Two years passed and we’ve changed. We’ve conquered and achieved things that seemed impossible at the time and only because we believed in each other.
Thank you for being that amazing person you are, I’m so grateful for our friendship brother 🙏😍 Es tevi mīlu ❤️ #friends#friendship #brother#netherlands#latvia#portugal#tb#oldtimes#goodtimes#summer#freedom#support#family#goals#soulconnection#universe#spiritual#thankful#joy#happiness#enjoylife#bmx#yoga#bewell#maffie
Today’s trip to Red fort was really great, I loved it 🥰
The Red Fort was constructed in 1639 and it was the main residence for the Indian emperors, for nearly 200 years. The fort has such a beautiful and old vibe, amazing architecture, and a lot of creativity involved. If you’re going to India you should definitely check it out 🙌
It was really interesting that, for the first time since I’m here, people were asking to take pictures and selfies with me. I’m not sure why but it was pretty funny 😂
It was also the first time I could make this pose (for more than 5 seconds), the “Toe stand”. It requires a lot of balance and focus and like any other yoga pose, practice. Loads of practiced 🙏💖 Next week I’ll be going to Taj Mahal and I’m really excited about it.
I’m so grateful for all the things I’m able to experience while working has a volunteer.
Let’s keep working hard because the future ahead of us is so f*cking bright 💫✨ Be well 💛

Get to know your true self ❤️Spend time alone.
Enjoy your own company.
There is only one way to master the mind and that is to understand it, to dig deep and to look where you haven’t looked before.
What you’re going to discover might surprise you 🙌
I always enjoyed spending time alone and being a solo traveler is bringing so much clarity about what I want to do in the future.. about who I want to be in this world.. and yoga helps with it as well. Now that I’m here, I have more time to focus, to practice and to listen to my body.
I’m truly blessed with my journey and it’s only starting 🙏💫 I have a surprise coming this month so stay tuned 🤩
Be well 💛

One of the things that I’m learning with being in India is that you really don’t need much to be happy.
I thought I knew that before but I was wrong.
When you come here you see life trough the eyes of people who have nothing and still, they’re so full of life. It’s truly amazing to have this experience ✨
In Europe we think that we still have things to fight for and that we deserve more than what we have but we actually have no idea about what these people should have and they don’t. Remember, some people would give anything for the opportunities you’re having now.
Let’s be more humble, more loving and more caring.
Be love cuz you won’t have any regrets if you do ❤️ Be well 💛
Life is pure magic ✨
When you think it can’t surprise you no more, it does it again.
I knew that coming here would be very emotional but I had no idea of how much it actually is. I had a hard time when I was younger, I was put in the street by my mom so I had to live in an institution til 18. I was a big rebel but I didn’t deserved that from her. For many years, hate and forgiveness we’re fighting against each other’s and I couldn’t let go of the pain I was feeling.
It just wasn’t fucking fair, but once I accepted that I cannot change my past but I can use the knowledge I have to change my future, things got brighter 🙏
Being here, now, gives me the power to make a change in this children’s life’s but the most important thing that I realized is that it is making a massive change in my life. Even dough we have similar backgrounds,their situation is so much worse because of the fact that in this country there are no opportunities for people that don’t have money.
Thankfully there are projects like the one I’m participating where they can have access to education for free, but it should be like that all the time, everywhere.
Even with all the bad things that have happened to me, I’m so blessed 🌟
I’m thankful for the person I became, for the battles I’ve survived and for the people who stand next to me, I would be nothing without them ❤️ This full moon in Libra (my moon is in Libra as well) was about #rebirth and being present in the #now.
It isn’t a coincidence 💖
I ask you now to create awareness about the things that you’re #grateful for 🙌
Be well 💛

My heart is so full of gratitude and love that It’s hard to put it into words. This was the welcome ceremony, where they introduce us to the kids.
As soon as I got here I started crying like a baby, it’s really emotional to see all these kids so happy to see me, even dough they have never seen me before. The feeling is indescribable 🍀
I feel like I’m too small next to them and that what I have to teach them isn’t enough for what they do deserve. They are the most beautiful and smart kids, they just want to learn and be in the present, it’s truly amazing to see ❤️
I’ll be soon organizing a fund raising page, so for all of you that want to help these kids with anything, it will be possible 🙌
Thank you guys for following my journey, there’s much more to come 🙏🙏🙏 Be well 💛

Hey guys 👋
India is a pretty special place. I’ve never seen so many people in the same place and I’ve never see so much crazy people driving the same road 🤣🤣🤣 Some of you know that I came here to work has a volunteer, more precisely with the street children in Delhi.
The house and the people that live here are amazing, they gave me all the advices I could possibly need and they are always available. 🤗
Today I had my first orientation day and tomorrow I’m going into one of the worst parts of South Delhi where these kids live, literally, in the slums.
I’m very excited and probably not prepared for everything that I’m going to see but I’m definitely ready to help these kids being the best humans they can, even dough they are facing this terrible reality.
We can all make the difference 🙌
Help someone that can’t help themselves.
It doesn’t matter if you’re giving them a smile or food, but be sure that you’re sharing loads of love and compassion with it✨
If you’re thinking about being a volunteer please contact me, I’ll be happy to help you 🥰
Be well 💛

We’re all in a different fight, fighting for the same goal: being free to be who we truly are.
Why can’t we all put our strengths together and share unconditional love with each other’s? 💕
Everyday is a new opportunity. To be better.
To love and to be loved.
It doesn’t matter if you’re fighting for animals rights, women’s equality or (no) gender equality.
We all deserve to express ourselves and to be recognized by whatever we want to be recognized for 🌱🏳️🌈
Support the people around you, you will make a huge difference in their life’s ⚡️ Tag someone who might need to see this post and show them some love 🌟
Be well 💛
