Shadow Ninja

Do you remember what you wanted to become when you were little?

A doctor? Astronaut? Princess? Become like your mum or your dad? Or something totally different than that?! Remember the days when you had faith and you knew that this is going to happen because you want it to? You had wishes, dreams and you thought you can do it?! Remember what it felt like thinking you could move any mountain, without any understanding of reality?

At some point every day life kicks in and you lost yourself. You lost your dreams, hopes, wishes… Did you really? Or do you keep a little piece of that childhood memory burning inside yourself? Are you really living or did you become a shadow of the circumstances?

Listen to yourself deeply and memorize that feeling! Back in the days you had this tremendous power inside you. Do you remember that energy and feeling of those days? It felt great, right!? You still are the same person, yes you are, and that version of you have learned the lessons of life while moving on. You got it all inside you. It was there since you were little, and it still is. It turned even stronger. You just need to understand and communicate proper. This energy you own is what keeps you going. It keeps you living. Cherish this fire burning inside you and remember your strength. Listen to yourself again. Become yourself again.

Watching Minime on the beach made me think of all these things. He strongly believes he will become a Ninja one day, so he trains really hard. My little shadow ninja.

I strongly believe we all have this shadow ninja living inside ourselves, who makes sure that we do stand up and reach our goals.

Once you step into the light, you get to see your shadow.

Sobald du einen Schritt ins Licht machst, siehst du deinen Schatten.

Schatten Ninja

Erinnerst du dich, was du werden wolltest, als du klein warst?

Ein Arzt? Astronaut? Prinzessin? Sein wie deine Mama oder dein Papa? Oder lieber ganz anders werden?! Erinnerst du dich an die Tage, als du fest daran geglaubt hast und kein Zweifel dich erschüttern konnte? Du hattest Wünsche, Träume und warst überzeugt, dass es wird. Erinnerst du dich wie es sich anfühlt, als du dachtest du könntest Berge versetzen, ohne die Realität zu verstehen?

Irgendwann beginnt der Alltag mit seiner Routine im Leben und du hast dich selbst verloren. Du hast deine Träume, Hoffnungen, Wünsche verloren… Hast du das wirklich? Oder lässt du ein kleines Stückchen dieser Kindheitserinnerung in dir brennen? Lebst du wirklich oder bist du ein Schatten deiner Umstände geworden?

Höre auf dein Innerstes und erinnere das Gefühl! Damals hattest du diese enorme Kraft in dir. Erinnerst du dich noch an die Energie und das Gefühl jener Tage? Es hat sich doch toll angefühlt?!Du bist immer noch dieselbe Person, ja, du bist es, und diese Version von dir hat die Lektionen des Lebens gelernt, während das Leben passiert ist. Du hast alles in dir. Es war da als du klein warst und es ist noch immer da. Es wurde noch stärker. Du solltest lernen es zu verstehen und richtig zu kommunizieren. Diese Energie, die du besitzt, hält dich am Laufen. Es hält dich am Leben. Schätze dieses Feuer, das in dir brennt und erinnere dich an deine Stärken. Höre dir selbst gut zu. Werde wieder du selbst.

Das Anschauen von Minime am Strand ließ mich an all diese Dinge denken. Minime ist fest davon überzeugt, dass er eines Tages ein Ninja werden wird und trainiert daher sehr hart. Mein kleiner Schatten-Ninja. Ich glaube fest daran, wir alle haben diesen Schatten-Ninja in uns, der dafür sorgt, dass wir aufstehen und unsere Ziele erreichen.

    Indeed if I ask myself right now, I’m in the shadow of circumstances. Some brutal yet poignant enough to turn my life upside down. Well written !💚

      I want to but I can’t be perfect at the moment. Just being in the moment than being perfect really. I’d rather be messed up right now!

    The Ninja: A master of a particular Martial Art; known for stealth and skill to elude an advisory. Very keep perceptions; subtle and aware.

    Minime will be well prepared for the world I think…he’ll know what to do and have all the skills and tools needed to be safe and strong.

    What a great photo!

    I wonder if you’d given thought to placing him in a martial arts class; like Karate or Akido…I think Ninja is based on principles of both of these martial arts. Karate is a hard form (defensive and offensive…attack and defend, both) and Akido is mostly defensive…how to subdue an opponent, and I think both have very high ethical and spiritual elements.

    When I was a kid, I think I had the same sort of fascination with Ninjas. I loved Ninja and Kung-fu Movies (and still do actually).
