The 3 ugly truths about following your dreams

Follow your dreams! Turn your passion into a job. Live the life you dream of! This is what most motivational speakers or writers talk about. Including me. My whole purpose of my blog is too inspire individuals to turn their dreams into reality. I want you to fulfill your wildest dreams, while becoming the best version of yourself! But I also want to keep it real with you. Which is why I wanna talk about the things no one talk about when it comes to following your dreams. It can get lonely You have decided to break free from the mold and go against the majority. Congratulations! You have taken the step 99% is afraid to take. But now you’re on your journey on your own. Your friends and family are discouraging you. They don’t understand the sacrifices you have to make in order to live your dreams. The club nights out; you’re choosing to miss out so you can wake up bright and early and put in the work. The social gathering you’re skipping …

45 Eye-opening quotes from “The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck”

For this year, one of my goals is to read at least 24 books. Which basically means reading 2 books per month. The first book I chose to read this year was in line with one of my other goals: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson. The reason I chose this book is because -get ready for the cliché- I really want to achieve bigger things in life. However, the thoughts of these things I wish to achieve, in combination with social media immediately get me overwhelmed, anxious and depressed. In that order. To the point that I’ll just have a glass of wine and hide in bed instead. And all because I have too much fucks to give. In all honesty, I hadn’t read any reviews on this book and actually thought it would be another self-help book that would tell me how capable I am of achieving marvelous things in life as long as I cared less about what people think. Boy, was I wrong. Is it a self-help …

Weekly report: 2-3

Welcome to the belated weekly report of week 2 and 3! As of week 1 I pledged to share the progress of my goals with you. Now that we finished week 3, let’s see how that has gone. Exercise 2-3 times per week With pride I can say, I nailed it and failed it! The goal for January is 2-3 times per week, the long-term goal for 2019 is every day. Hence I was hella proud of myself when in week 2 I marked Friday as day my fifth day of exercise. For the weekend I intended to d extended yoga sessions, but I got lazy. This laziness stretched itself along to week 3. I literally didn’t do one bit of exercising for week 3. And it was noticeable. At least for myself. I was less energetic and also a lot more on edge. Because to be frank: yoga has been doing great things for my mental state. Plus: a bitch is almost able to reach her toes again! Read 2 books this month One …

I took the jump!

Yessss! I finally have time to write a new post. Sike, not really. I’m on the bus on my way to work, writing and listening to a podcast. But bustrips have become my only breaks. Or at least I try to make them my breaks as these usually get filled with phonecalls.(Hey Noa, hey Grace!) But now, I technically have time, plus a reason to write. Because your girl just started  her own (t-shirt)-line. That’s right. I finally took the jump. Some of you who have been following me on IG and/or on FB were already aware and some of you even ordered already (yay!). I’ve been wanting to start my own line for so long, but fact is…Your girl can’t sew shit. Which is quite a requirement to start up from scratch. Or so I thought. Actually, I thought I lacked a lot to get started. I can’t sew, I don’t have a proper computer to work on, I don’t have a start-up budget. All by all, I solely had been focusing on what I didn’t/don’t have. Until I …
