In principle, I have always been fascinated by everything that is connected with movement: from ‘I move myself to what moves my fellow human beings to how can I move something in this world and who already moves a lot. I find it hard to stand still. Whether running for a charity run or discussing world-changing issues,” it says in the menu item ‘About’ on my website.
And indeed, an inner restlessness makes itself noticed when I observe how people and humanity seem to go around in circles in certain areas and situations. Trapped in the system of everyday life, habit, comfort or in the hamster wheel of perfection and ‘always functioning well’, path and goal blur on the horizon of existence and a sense of stagnation and frustration begin to block movement forward.
Again and again, I tried to get myself out of this rut and finally succeeded.
I start this process of liberation again and again:
– by creating space for myself: saying no to ‘more’, clearing my head through physical movement, whether running, gymnastics, swimming, dancing or even singing.
-by focusing more and more on my actions, my strengths and my authenticity
-in nurturing my relationship with God and the Great Spirit from the heart and with passion.
-in which I appreciate my counterpart in gratitude and strengthened and motivate to look forward and go.
“All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.” -Benjamin Franklin

👩🏼🇦🇹🇫🇷🇨🇭🇸🇳🇲🇦 Eva-Maria Pimmingstorfer
Eva-Maria and I attended the secondary school (HS 1) in Vöcklabruck together from 1976 -1980 – I perceived Eva-Maria as very self-confident and determined back then and today I admire her eloquence, her ability to empathize, her clear line and her humor. Eva-Maria comes from the Hausruckviertel/Upper Austria, she lives and works as an administrative assistant in Vienna. Her hobbies include hiking, traveling and cycling.
Irmgard grew up on a farm in the Waldviertel, she is a retired social worker and psychotherapist and loves the sea, hiking, cycling, gardening and reading. We know each other from the Grandmother Turtle Center and I appreciate Irmgard’s sensitive, fine way, her courage to always remain self-reflective and her openness to the world and love for Mother Earth.
Michael and I ran into each other at a Weekly Long Run (https://www.wemove.at) – we ran a bit together and were quickly engaged in a very interesting conversation – we have been friends on Instagram ever since and I admire Michael for his passion, discipline and motivational Instagram running posts. Michael was employed as a master carpenter and stage manager in the workshops of the Federal Theaters (now Art for Art) at the Arsenal until his retirement. He is passionate about running and is also artistically active as DJ Okim, among others 👉https://facebook.com/DJ-Okim-213268718482/
