Remember the beginning of 2015? As you may have read, I am from the anti-new year’s resolutions movement. In the first days of January, I wanted to do something new, which included some food for thought. So last year in January, I decided to write a letter to the Future Me in 2016. I explained how you can do this and my arguments about doing this in this blogpost.
You might find yourself at home thinking. Thinking about wanting to have a job. Or you find yourself working in the office although you know that this job is not for you. You’re back at home again thinking about your current situation which is so different than you what you dreamed of when you were 11. Or you’re out for dinner, celebrating present success but…what’s next? At home again, you’re scrolling through your social media newsfeed and you realise life is just bittersweet and for some people way too short. Which again stimulates you to think about your own life, hopes and dreams. Let’s add some more fuel to that Dreams engine.
How are you?
Enjoy your evening
Congratulations on your promotion/new job/new house/…
Nice to have you back
I missed you
I am so happy for you
Good Luck. Wish you the best!
Good for you!
A few days ago, I was watching a program on Dutch television. An interesting program where people looked back on their high school period and the (then) “most beautiful girl” in class (in Dutch: Het mooiste meisje van de klas). On contrary of the title, the program does not only focus on the appearance of the girl, but also her character, ambitions and ups and downs in life. Besides that it gives a nice peak into everyday life of a teenager in the 80s and 90s. And of course you already know how much I love those nostalgic vibes.
A few weeks ago, I did a little interview on the Dutch lifestyle blog Dejlig.nl. One of the questions actually inspired me to write this blog. It was question number four: What is your life motto? My reply (the short version) was: Be yourself. For the long version: check the interview on Dejlig.nl.
When I was very young, I somehow had the idea that becoming a teacher would be a nice career goal in my life. The teaching vibes faded away as I grew older. Becoming a teacher is probably a great job, but not for me. It didn’t fit my ambitions and the person I had become.
