Vernal Equinox – Spring

29430equinox_inner

While we enter the new season, something has been cracking inside of me. It’s going to burst out all kind of things; flowers, colours and much different stuff. It comes like the tides, with high and low moments of freedom, insight, revelations, much new information still in process of downloading.

Spring is the time of rebirth. It’s the time when the seeds are ready to bloom. We leave behind the dark and cold days to receive the fullness of life.

Joining a new project on the go! #Augustbreak2014

theaugustbreak_red

Hi all, after my last post and almost turning the famous and fabulous 40’s, I now want to tell you about a new project I will be joining together called #AugustBreak2014.

What’s all this about? Well, remember last year I joined The Blog Lovin’ Tour from the book ‘The Declaration of You’ (from the authors: Michelle Ward and Jessica Swift)? During a whole month I was participating together with other bloggers all around the world with posts about every chapter/subject from their awesome book. And it was such a great thing to do! I have enjoyed every minute from that project, discovered lots of great blogs (such as this from Susannah Conway, creator of the AugustBreak2014 project), found a lot more about my creative self and.. many new readers started to get to know me. Was a great experience!

Now it will be a bit more different, because in this case Susannah thought about a photo project. So, every day from 1st to 31st August people all over the world will be posting pics via Instagram about certain subjects Susannah chose. I’m regularly on Instagram posting pics about my kids but also about other interesting or especial things or moments that catch my attention. I love the idea of being posting pics with a previous idea and.. Also being part of something much much bigger.

So, in behalf of this new project on the go I will be posting pics on my Instagram account (this a private account but I will be posting with the hashtag #AugustBreak2014) and automatically on my Twitter account as part of this. It’s the perfect way to start this incredible summer time and also celebrating my coming birthday in full bloom. So, I say, keep tuned and expect more posts with pics from my blog.

If you would also like to join Susannah with this amazing creative project, you can still do it clicking on this link. Have fun, enjoy, be present, smile and love.

Here is the list of themas Susannah chose, it looks great! I can’t wait to start right now! Enjoy it!

Summer is here to stay! See you soon!

Escape to the future

Image

The last weeks have been really busy back here in my small world. At this moment new projects coming my own way, new insights about love, friendship, work, dreams, children and just the rough everyday’s life. That’s what matters after all. Yours everyday’s life, what you put in your head since the moment you wake up to the moment you go back to horizontal position and (try to) sleep.
Some weeks ago sleeping was everything what I was thinking about. Yes, don’t take me wrong, sleeping like forgetting and letting go.

The space between

Lately I’m in a poor mood for writing. It has been weeks, almost months since I came up with new ideas, new thoughts to pour down into this blog.

As a writer & blogger, the way I like to call myself, I feel the urgency of writing almost 24 hours a day. But lately, life has been unfolding into deep waves of solitude and I’m longing for quietness more and more.

Today the day I decide to write again for you out there, reaching out my hands in an attempt to fulfil my loneliness. Keeping track of what makes me feel alive. Writing. As pure as it is. Writing, because my words can stay hollow in the deepest seas but they’re still here to end my suffering.

An artist of the floating world*

I’m happy to be back here again. It took me a long while to unfold my need to be writing again. I’ve been learning to master the art of (dis)connection and at the same time, proving myself that art was not mere an object of my passion. I’ve been under much stress, that’s true. And the fact that I feel lonely and full of energy has made me think twice how was I going to continue with my writing. Many things are happening at the same time, life evolves in mysterious ways and sometimes what we think normal isn’t like that anymore. Nothing wrong with that. There aren’t absolutes. We tend to think we are on the right path, and the following moment fall into emptiness without warning. And that’s fine. Although we may be not prepared for it.

Let’s see.. In the past months I’ve realized my writing hasn’t improved much. I’ve been too much involved with myself, my own visions of life, changing from one subject to the other. Keeping my head among the clouds, walking all the time on the same circle. In that sense I don’t see much improvement. There has been no reality check after all, no art.

Finding my way to simplicity

Image

Well hello back. It took me some time after the last post to be here and be able to write something new about me and, most of all, my quest of happiness a.k.a. ‘the search of my true self’.

It’s been now a month since I quit FB and believe me, it has been difficult for the first 3 weeks. But lately I happened to start feeling a quite unusual sensation of something called ‘freedom’.

Of course, this was related to many issues I’ve been experiencing for the last half year. Or, better be said, the last 5 years until now.

The main thing is that I’m broken. Broken hearted and money broken. I know these are tough topics just to drop here on a blog post. So I won’t go too much into details.

Anyway, by being true to myself, this quest for growth, happiness and fulfilment has been showing me other ways to feel part of something bigger, part of the world. It’s something basic to our humanity, a reflection of the way in which we are meant to live happy and creatively.

The Ultimate Job Search – making the best out your career and life mission

Sponsored post by Holanda Conecta* and Conquista Coach

Since I started with this blog I’ve been more than secretly hoping that opportunities were to come to me one way or another. Being unemployed, now longer than a year, makes every day more difficult to believe there will be a job out there for me. It’s a kind of depression not to be working, not only because I’m living in a kind of poverty, also the fact that I’m aware that all my talents and skills are not being used. It also has to do with a lack of self-fulfilment.

Of course, you can think this is just an excuse not to go for it. Like I heard many times, if I’m so desperate about having a job, there are plenty of possibilities out there. And I agree there are possibilities, but as I said at the beginning not all these job opportunities seem to be the right one for me. Believe me; I myself can’t afford to stay any longer without earning that money I need every month to pay my bills.

This blog has been opening me some doors, not only many people are actually reading what I have to say, there are others waiting to see how I evolve and wishing me all the best. Imagine my happiness when Eva Visser Plaza from Holanda Conecta, together with Eugenia Vega Montesino from Conquista Coach invited me to participate to her training ‘The Ultimate Job Search’ in Amsterdam on a whole day Saturday. This was the chance I was waiting for to learn new tips & tricks and interact with fellow job seekers! Every opportunity is always a possibility for change. This was clearly mine.

Time is what you make of it – Embrancing change

Image

Well, it’s been a while. Hello back.

For the last months I’ve had enough fun on Facebook and a social writing life with the Blog Lovin’ Tour of The Declaration of You book. Almost every week during the tour I was writing a post about a topic and enjoying a lot doing it. The last post was about #trust, and that was the same topic I wrote about as a reason to join this Blog Tour. Then it was this deadline on Friday2nd. And I didn’t write anything.

So, at the end of the tour I didn’t make it to write (again) about trust. My idea about it has never changed but I’ve noticed my spirit was already somewhere else.

Deadline was Friday and on the 3rd, Saturday, my birthday. I was supposed to be hosting a bbq party with family at home. But it went different than expected. At the end, I was alone with two good friends that came to enjoy dinner with me and my daughter. I even had a cake with candles! I feel really grateful that they were here this day with me.

Then I realize that obviously this fun time was great but it was also over. Finito.

Celebrating my life as much as I can

Image

Well, glad I’m back to you here. It’s been almost a week ago I wrote for the last time, even my own other blogs have been left aside. The reasons are that we are having a fantastic weather in Holland, and I’m, yes, enjoying and celebrating it!

Kids are on holidays, so we are having less schedules and timetables to do things every day. We can finally enjoy the sun; go to the beach and going around. Finally having the great excuse to join with friends and having some cool beers in the garden or outside!

Summer is for me THE time for celebration. Not only because I love the weather, also because my birthday comes on sight. And this time I feel like celebrating with the world!

But just waiting for a season in the year to celebrate is obviously not enough! In the Netherlands there are many rituals and traditions to celebrate all kinds of things. What about the celebration of yourself? Not only going out with friends, also to celebrate who you are, what you’ve achieved, giving you the love you need to continue doing great. It can be because of you, your work, your studies, and your family, whatever. Everything counts.
