My writer’s block; focus or scatter?

Whichever words that come they will be the right words. The words that don’t come where not meant to spoken yet. Or maybe even meant to be forgotten. I feel so stuck in my writing these days. I used to be able to spill out words like a stream of water. Words that made sense, reached people and made an impact. And then somebody told me… “you should start a blog to share this with people”. I thought this was...

Goalsetting: One step at a time…

Today I am as happy as a bird with a French fry. I’ve installed myself on the balcony, in the sun, with a glass of wine, feet up and my laptop on my lap. What else could a person possibly wish for? It’s these kinds of moments that make me realize that through all the tough decisions and hurdles I had to take the last 12 months, things are really falling into place for me. It’s the little moments like...

My time in Barcelona – getting settled in

Balance… and overcoming fear, that’s what this is all about… After two weeks of cleaning, opening boxes, placing and re-arranging the same furniture the very next day, drilling holes, slamming nails in the wall and clean the place (all over again), I’m settled in. The apartment looks amazing, and after the plant shopping last week, an intense jasmine smell fills up my home. All in all, it truly feels like home. My own 60m3 of home, because down the stairs,...

My first steps on the path to self-love and healing

A fragment from my first diary dating from my teenage years: “I visited my old school today, looking for some people I know. I spoke to some old classmates and my old gym teacher. He is a young guy, not much older than me and he always seemed interested in me in a way that a teacher really shouldn’t be interested in a student. Even though he never actually did anything to back that idea up. Whatever I wanted to...

The start of a blog, over a decade ago..

Over a decade ago, at the age of 16, I wrote: “Today I’m starting my first diary. I think it might be useful to write down my thoughts, feelings, and emotions since these sometimes feel like too much for my teenage brain to handle. This way I can put my vision into words so later in life I can look back and see if life was really the way it seemed to me at the moment. I’m curious to see...

Twenty-nine-and-one-day, a moment of reflection:

This year of my life started off difficult: my relationship did not bring either of us what we were looking for and with pain in our hearts, we decided to follow our own paths. Quickly after that, I felt motivated to again build my own foundations in this life and to refuel creative ideas, new and old. It was a turbulent time, with tears of joy but also of sadness. I learned how to let something go that I’d loved...
