Breverie Guide - How to stop existing and start living

it's time to...


With a path of personal growth, connection with yourself and courageous action, you can create the life of the highest level of meaning, potential, satisfaction and contribution.

You can create the life where you feel perfectly alive, where you know your value and your worth, where you pursue your dreams with passion and confidence, and where you create positive change in yourself and in the world around you.

let me ask you...

Does any of the below sound familiar?

You live your life constantly counting days until next weekend, or next vacation. Your days are dull and boring, they all blend in together, and sometimes you have trouble remembering what you had for breakfast yesterday.


You have dreams, but you keep putting them off for some reason. You keep telling yourself that you will start next Monday, next month, next year – and you never do. You joke with your friends that you are the biggest procrastinator, but deep inside yourself you wish you could change it – you just don't know how.


You feel lost. You feel like there are limitless opportunities in front of you, that you can open any door you like and do anything you want in your life, but the problem is that you have no idea what it is that you want to do.


You feel like you are constantly spinning the wheels, like you are always busy, and still you don't feel accomplished or satisfied. You often look back on your day and wonder what it is that you were doing all day because you don't feel like you achieved any results.


You have a lot of goals, but you struggle to achieve them. Every year, on January 1, you set New Year's resolutions, and every year you give up on them before January is even over. You believe that something is wrong with you, that you are just not capable of achieving anything. You have a picture of your dream life in your head, but you have no idea how to get there. You feel hopeless, powerless and discouraged.

The truth is... You are not living. You are existing.

You don't own your life.

You are letting your life slip through your fingers. You are missing out on an opportunity to be living your life to the fullest today.

But it doesn't have to be like that. You can change it.

I know exactly how you feel. Because I've been there too.

My name is Olena Mytruk, and I am the founder of Breverie. 

Just like you, for many years I was not living – I was existing. Without even realizing it. My life seemed perfectly fine from the outside – I was married, I had built a successful career, I had a wonderful daughter. And still, I wasn't feeling alive.

Going to bed in the evening was my favorite part of the day – there just wasn't anything during the day that lit me up. I hated the way I looked, and still I didn't do anything about it. I showed up confidently at work, and still deep inside I was full of doubts and insecurities.  I completed my daily routines every day, and still I wasn't experiencing life.

Then, one day something happened that turned my whole life upside down. I suddenly realized that I wasn’t satisfied with my life anymore. I realized that I deserved a better life. I realized that I owed myself a better life.

This realization led me to a 7-year journey back to myself. Journey to discover who I really am, what I want and what I am capable of. 

This journey taught me how to continually reach out for more, how to keep pushing the boundaries, while staying true to myself.

This journey has led me to creating Breverie – so that you can achieve the same transformation.

So that you can stop existing and can start living.

it all starts with a spark

All areas of our lives are interconnected. By elevating one area of our life, you are able to elevate other areas too.

I call it the life ripple effect.

Once you know how to spark it, and how to maintain it, you become an owner of your life and you begin to experience the most joy, fulfillment and satisfaction – and this is exactly what makes your life worth living.

welcome to Breverie

Your ultimate guide to a meaningful life filled with personal growth and the highest level of satisfaction and contribution.

connect with yourself

Start by learning to be present – to notice and appreciate the little moments of your life that are happening today and that bring you joy and fulfillment. Continue with a deep exploration of who you are, what your passions, aspirations, needs and desires are. From there, create your own vision of life that you want to be living.

act and grow

Take daily actions that are aligned with your vision. Become aware of the barriers and roadblocks that are holding you back, acknowledge them, accept them and work with them. Continuously develop yourself, uncover what you are capable of, build up confidence and self esteem. Say "yes" to the life you want to be living, and say "no" to everything that is taking you off course.

reflect to evolve

Make the time to reflect and to sit in silence. Listen to yourself and hear yourself. Learn to understand and process your emotions – they are your compass that will always tell you if you are moving in the right direction. Don't let your habits and your routines enslave you – change them once they stop serving you.

live and contribute

By living your life to the fullest, you will not only change yourself – you will also influence the positive change in the world around you. 

By doing what you love and by putting it to use to a bigger, more important cause, you will achieve the highest level of joy and happiness and will create the life filled with meaning, fulfillment and satisfaction.

You will start living the life that is worth living.
