13 Quotes to inspire your grind

It’s a new week and so time for some new motivation to help us get our week started. Here are some quotes for you to inspire your grind! Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it’ll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off. – Kevin Hart I see you grinding, I see your patience, I see your late nights and early mornings. Hard work pays off. – The Universe Welcome to the grind.

3 Ways To Regain Motivation

Are you experiencing the Monday Blues? Absolutely not in the mood to be an adult and fulfill your responsibilities? Can you hear your bed to have a cheatday? Hey, it’s okay. Life isn’t always a party. It can be, but since you’re reading this clearly that’s not the case. We all have days where we just don’t have the fuel to get ourselves going. When I started writing this at 6.23am on my way to work, I was still contemplating to get off the bus and return back home. But Beyoncé didn’t become the queen by laying in bed and watch series, now did she? Even though it’s okay to have one of those days, the problem with demotivation is that it can linger longer than one day. Even worse, it hinders you from making progress! So how about we look into ways to get you motivated, so you can absolutely slay this week? Before we get into what could work, let me start off by shedding a light on what doesn’t get you motivated. …

How to go on when you're down

How to keep going?

I’d like to dedicate this piece to my dear friend. She called me last night -we hadn’t talked on the phone or in person for at least 2-3 months- to tell me how much my previous post. This meant a lot, as this is exactly the reason I do this. But then she asked me a question and it was a question I had asked myself many times. How do I keep going when everything is going to shit?

Had she asked me this 4 years ago, I would’ve told her: by surviving.

But now, in 2017, I know how to keep going even when everything seems to fall apart and I want to share it with you.

From SMART to SMARTER

Well, queen of wishing c’est moi. Unconsciously so. I don’t know how many times I’ve said I wanted something and got mad (not frustrated, just straight up furious) my dreams weren’t becoming reality.  It wasn’t until this year that I had made one of my resolutions to actually see my dreams come to life that I found out that I wasn’t being SMART.

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 …
