‘Dus, hoe gaat het nu met je?’

Het is zo'n gewone vraag, maar ik blijf 'm lastig vinden. Hoe gaat het? Voor ik er echt over na kan denken zeg ik al 'Ja, goed! Lekker rustig, niks op aan te merken.' 20 minuten eerder liep ik malend en piekerend naar het station, bijna in paniek omdat ik even niet wist wat ik met mijn gedachtes aan moest, maar zodra de vraag wordt[...]

Vandaag om precies te zijn 6 maanden, maar aangezien ik toch nooit nieuwe boeken lees wil ik nog even wat met je delen over de boeken die ik in 2018 gelezen heb. 2018 in boeken: De verwarde cavia - Paulien CornelisseIkigai - Hector Garcia PuigcerverWe have always lived in the castle -[...]

Dingen afmaken is moeilijk

Dingen afmaken is moeilijk

Ik heb iets ontdekt, wat ik eigenlijk al jaren wist. Ik maak nooit iets af. Beginnen, geen probleem. Stap één tot en met negen werk ik hard en heb ik duidelijk voor ogen wat het doel is. Dan komt de laatste stap en laat ik alles vallen. Van het weekend was ik bij Millionaire Mind Intensive in het Hiltonhotel in Amsterdam. Echt een geweldige ervaring[...]

Summer, I miss you

Summer, I miss you

I guess it’s part of the human design to always want something else than what you have. Back when it was summer, my sweaty butt and I couldn’t wait for temperatures to drop. Right now I am looking out the window. Rain is pouring down, the wind is making so much noise even my noise canceling headphones can’t take it and It’s cold. Not just[...]

Throw kindness around like confetti

Throw kindness around like confetti

It baffles me how we speak to ourselves. The words we use in our heads are so different than the ones we use for others. If I would speak to a friend (or even just a stranger) the way I spoke to myself, they would probably slap me in the face and never speak to me again. But when we speak to ourselves, we don’t[...]

Goals for 2019

So, this was supposed to go live on the first day of January, but I guess it didn't. Well, better late than never, I guess 😅 Hi, here we are again. It's the first day of the year and everything is fresh and light. Except for you probably, most people start the year with a giant hangover and lots of regrets. 2018 has not been the best year for me, although it was massively better than 2017. To continue growing, I've decided to set some goals. Some small, some[...]

2018: the year of trying and failing and trying again

Let’s be honest, 2018 was not that great. But even at it’s most difficult times, it still wasn’t a waste of time. I feel like I’ve grown more than any other year before. I’ve been incredibly happy and horribly sad. Also my phone broke halfway through the year, so this won't be as easy to recall as last year.  Visited Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Bristol[...]

City by Night

I just realized I haven't worked in about 2 weeks. That's the longest I’ve gone without thinking of work since my last holiday in August. To celebrate my temporary freedom I continued a winter tradition. The Light Festival is something I’ve visited every year since 2016. Once with my girlfriends, once with another friend and this year my boyfriend was the victim. As I dragged[...]

Vision Board 2018: What happend, what didn’t

In February I uploaded my vision board. Two pieces of digital paper that I hoped would happen in 2018. I've looked at these images almost every day. They hang on the wall above my desk. Living together with my boyfriend. Probably not full-time, but I would like to have a second place to call my home. This happend! My boyfriend got the keys to his house[...]
