Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

California Trip


Last month, I finally made my dream come true and went on a trip to California. It was a spontaneous decision: a friend of mine said she was going, and she offered me to go with her and her friend. I wasn’t thinking much, I just said Yes. I got my plane ticket two days later. The brief plan for the trip was LA – Catalina Island - San Diego – LA. I landed two days after the two

Your Place on Earth


My recent California trip helped me to realize a lot of things. But the most important things started happening in my head while I was still there.  It blows my mind how we restrict ourselves. We don’t even need any kind of threat, danger, or higher power – we put limitations on ourselves on our own, without even realizing it. I was lucky enough that I have traveled a lot with

What Are You Willing To Sacrifice?


As I mentioned it a few times before, I work out to the videos of  the Polish fitness trainer Ewa Chodakowska. She recently posted this thing on Facebook that made me think. People always say things like: “I wish I could live like that”, “I wish I could live in NY”, “I wish I could travel like you do”, “I wish I looked like you” (just to be cl

Why Would I Ask My Boyfriend to Work Out?


I can see some of your faces right away. And I’m smiling, because I know what some of you think – that this is a weird or superficial request to make. And I don’t agree with you. I’ve been writing about bodies, working out and self-confidence a lot lately – and those subjects will be coming back, since that’s something I’m really interested in. And this

Step 28 - What You Can Do At Your Age?


The answer is – everything. No matter how old you are. And people just don’t get it. It’s really difficult for me to listen to the statements like that: “I can’t suddenly start doing that! I’m too old for that!”. I just don’t want to be around those people anymore. What does it mean that you’re “too old” for something…? You

Step 27 - What’s Your Definition of Success?


The answer to the question is not that obvious, if you think of it. Still, I bet that most of people associate success with money. When we’re saying: “He/She is successful” we mean that they make a lot of money. I used to think along the same lines, but over the time I understood it’s not about money at all. At least –not for me. You can have all the money in the w

How Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?


It’s been three months of the New Year already and I bet most of you forgot about your resolutions by now, right? I didn’t forget about mine, just because I carry my notebook with me all the time. And I wrote them down on the first page, just to be sure I would check it once in a while. And I really do read them again every month. Did all of them become part of my life? Most of the

Step 26 – Why Women Have to Work Out?


I wrote about it on Just Like NY already, but I will keep on writing about that until you all will understand it – we women have to work out. Men have to work out too, of course, but I think it especially crucial when it comes to women. Why? Because, as I said before – I don’t believe that a woman who is not satisfied with her body can have a truly happy life. I just don’
