Episode 1: Say Yes to Happiness and Choose to Screw Being Unhappy

Do you want great things in life? Do you feel frustrated, worried or scared? Most of the time things in life don’t go as planned. We fail, we fall.

Yes, me too. I’m in it with you.

I know how hard and frustrating life, relationships and creating new habits can be, especially if you live abroad or have a partner from a different culture.

In this episode, I share how growing up in a regular family in the Czech Republic while being a black sheep, living in 7 countries on 3 continents, going through a divorce and fighting for our relationship with my Zambian husband shaped my curiosity and desire to find happiness.

I share why I created this podcast and how it will help you to take on even the most difficult days, and still feel happy.

So, even if your life is like a rollercoaster, pop in those headphones and let’s decide to Screw Being Unhappy!

I’m a woman who wants to be HAPPY. And I’m dedicated to helping you feel HAPPY too, even when life is like a rollercoaster.

Because let’s face it, life is messy and I’m in it with you. I know how hard and frustrating life, relationships and creating new habits can be, especially if you live abroad or have a partner from a different culture (because that’s super important part of my life story too). I’ve lived in 7 countries on 3 continents, been divorced, fought for my love with my Zambian husband, created my own business, Im raising a small, very energetic human and always work on habits that make her happier. And every day, I decide to screw being unhappy. 

So if you’re scared you’re not good enough for your relationship, or you worry that you won’t be able to keep living in “his” country after all, or maybe you hate that you’re not able to stick to this one habit you really want to create, you’re in the right place.…  

 This podcast will be here for you when you feel like you’re going in circles. For those moments when you finally take one step ahead, life takes you back two. You know, that feeling when you finally get promoted, your boyfriend wants to break up. Or when you finally start exercising regularly in a new gym, you have to move to a different city. Or You finally start to earn more money and the car breaks down.

Yep, I’ll be here for all of it. And together we’ll say, “Screw being unhappy!”

“Screw being Unhappy” is a Podcast where we talk through all these fears and give you the answers and clarity about what to do next through sharing real experience, interviews with inspiring women like you and direct coaching. If you’re feeling stuck, frustrated, confused or just don’t know what to do anymore, you’re in the right place.

Born and raised in a “regular” family in the Czech Republic, I was always a black sheep. Becoming vegetarian at the age of 15, from a young age I had a burning desire to see what was beyond the country I spent my entire life in. I even left my dream university after a month to work in a restaurant instead. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in finding out what makes people happy. I wanted to know what, exactly, makes people enjoy life, even if things don’t go according to plans. 

Why are some people able to be in balance, while others seem being swept away by life’s events? I love learning about personal development and how to make our life amazing, when it comes to relationships, creating healthy habits, building our confidence or dealing with our past pains and disappointments.

I’m in this with you, experiencing the same ups and downs, and working through them. I believe that real change is slow, sneaky and full of setbacks, not the once in the lifetime, fireworks, aha, enlightenment moments the movies sell to us.

And that’s okay. What’s important is that we keep going.

I’m here to be by your side. Like a wise girlfriend who’s been through it all.

Through my podcast, I’ll show you how to put one foot in front of the other even when life gives you lemons. You’ll be able to take on even the most difficult days and still feel good while drinking your lemonade. You’ll learn how to create stronger, joyful relationships, the healthy habits you always wanted and feel confident in life. I and my guests will share real-life experience, not theory, and practical and useful tips so you can experience balance in all areas of your life that are important to you, and simply feel HAPPY even if life is like a rollercoaster.

Are you ready to screw being unhappy?! I’m ready every day and hope you’re too! Let’s go and let’s do it!
