Dream on

September 23, 2015 | Inspirational column | 2 comments

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.

A sincere note…

Bring me some (great) character

June 14, 2015 | Inspirational column | 3 comments

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.

10 badass characteristics of the Be Yourselfer

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.

A trip to Neverland

There is something about Disney movies. You love the movies as a kid and they have a special place in your nostalgic heart when you’re all grown up. Remember when Mufasa died (Lion King)? Or when Dombo was being teased with his big ears? Then all of the sudden he had super powers and he could fly. Instant karma. You probably also remember Peter Pan and his Neverland. The (Disney) film version of this story was first published in 1923 and became a huge success. The rest is history. Until this day, Peter Pan is used as a name for a person who (always) has a youthful appearance. The term Neverland is used to refer to a fantasy land. A nice, fun place to forget about your worries. Another world. The one thing that can spoil your relaxed state of mind is Captain Hook. But he never wins, Peter Pan conquers every time.
