Monday, not my day

Monday, not my day

This wasn't a day I'm proud of... Starting off the day with forgetting about a meeting at 9 o'clock and arranging other things. Then jumping into it halfway through.  The rest of the day wasn't very productive either until about 16 o'clock when I managed to check...

Coffee and pancakes

Coffee and pancakes

It's Sunday which means pancakes for breakfast! I'm not sure why but once I woke up on a Sunday, I was feeling well-rested and lazy and I made pancakes for breakfast (actually, it's rather brunch time by the time we eat). This has been years ago and since then almost...

Just another 10 minutes

Just another 10 minutes

It's 11.11 when I type in the title of this post. Okay. So write for 10 minutes. Something should come out of if, even if it's just 10 lines. But everyday 10 lines, over a year 365 times 10 lines (I don't have a calculator on hand XD). Assuming of course that I will...

Just doing it

Just doing it

I think I start to understand the slogan of Nike: ''Just do it''. When I started with this blog last summer, I was planning to post at least every week. Before posting, I wrote down the blog in Google docs and have them proofread. I had a whole planning. The problem...

Corona sucks. But at least I started this blog.

Corona sucks. But at least I started this blog.

The year of 2020 will be for sure one of the weirdest years of our generation. Imagine that someone has been in a coma the whole year then when he wakes up in 2021 and asks: ‘How was your year? What did you do?’ - how will you answer? For many people this year feels...

Making a difference – the Rwandan experience

Making a difference – the Rwandan experience

This is an old repost from 2017. I wrote the below after having worked in Rwanda for a week and after 3 years, I still stand by my point. Especially now that I haven’t been able to visit this amazing place in almost a year. This is going to be a story of absolute...

Every girl needs her dad.

Every girl needs her dad.

It’s been 10 years… And I have never actually talked about my Dad to many people before. Not that people really ask actually. I have the feeling that they don’t dare to ask in order to not upset me. But it’s okay. They can ask. I’d love it if they asked so I could...

Happiness is a matter of perspective

Happiness is a matter of perspective

The other night I was watching an episode of Pewdiepie on Sushant Singh Rajput, a tribute to the Indian actor who was giving a speech about happiness. Pewdiepie usually makes funny review video’s but this episode was actually quite serious, nevertheless really nice....

Walk away (?)

Walk away (?)

Do you know the feeling when you finally stand up for yourself; present yourself vulnerable and honestly talk about what’s happening inside of you? Don’t worry, I’m not a big expert on it either. Outside of my family, I only did it once. In a work environment so it...

Get your priorities straight

Get your priorities straight

This blog is written during the Corona outbreak (Covid-19). Week 1 of isolation. There have been many posts and messages about the ‘spiritual message’ of ‘Why is this happening to us?’. And I’m going to join in on these messages. It’s amazing to see how we lost...

Dealing with emotions during the COVID-19 crisis – part I.

Photo credit: Markus Spiske Recently I have started on a course of coursera.or, called ‘The Science of well-being’ and is held by Laura Santos, Professor of Yale University. It’s a very practical course on how you can actually rewire your brain…

The evolution of anxiety

The evolution of anxiety

In this blog I would actually like to go back to the story of why we get panic attacks. I hope this will help some of you to put your physical feelings into perspective but most importantly understand them, and so help to overcome your attacks. When someone is anxious...

The busy brain

The busy brain

I often have the feeling that people have the urge to be busy. If they’re not busy at work (but have a ‘normal’ day) then they may feel that they are not doing enough and even might feel guilty. Then they want more and more and MORE! And they do get more. Which means...

Give it space

Give it space

A lot of people have issues with putting their emotions in the right place. And I mean it quite literally. We live in a world where showing any kinds of emotions, in its purest, is not cool. (Of course, I don’t mean those raging emotions where you want to punch...
