15 /// Dear Future Self – What is Freedom?

Dear future self, Just a moment ago, freedom was putting the laptop back to the side, to cuddle with a dog that was extra cute. Eventually, it became, asking the dog to move a little so we can still cuddle, while I write. To me, freedom is not something specific, it...

Photo by Jason Harrell 2018Dear future self, What do you know? Do you remember when Madonna was pregnant? Or how quickly she 'recovered' after giving birth? I was 15 or 16 at the time and the only story I had heard up to that point was that once you were pregnant and...

#13 /// Dear Future Self – Do You Believe in God?

I have to admit that I have my difficulties.

I grew up believing in God. Not that long ago, I opened my very first diary to a random page and read about how grateful I was, that I always had God to talk to.

Then my education made me believe that there was no God. I came to the conclusion that God, or any kind of belief, was used to explain things we couldn’t explain ourselves yet.

#12 /// Dear Future Self – What are Your Goals?

What are your goals? My next big goal is to find a beautiful place somewhere and to fill it with new life.

A place that can become a home for me and my family, but also a place for people to come together.

I’m thinking of an abandoned farm, monastery or factory. With lots of space for things to develop. I’d love to bring in community to set it up and bring it to life as well.

#11 /// Dear Future Self – What do you Dream About?

Today I have had people around me for two weeks in a row, after a year of mostly being by myself.

In this year, I had friends coming to visit for a weekend occasionally, and I met people sporadically, but I was also going for weeks without being around other people at all.

In the beginning, especially in fall/early winter, it was difficult to be by myself. I thought I wanted to have a family, and a lively house.

It’s all I ever wanted, I thought. But it turned out it was only all I ever knew to want.

#10 /// Dear Future Self – What inspires you?

What inspires you? I find nature to be the most precious inspiration.

It’s quite funny how we as humans think we can try to come up with solutions for everything when most of the most perfect ways to exist, are already present in nature.

What do we need to fly? Ask the birds.
What do we need to swim or dive?

Not Different, Just Love

It’s pride month, and, inspired by an interview I listened to, I thought, that I, and maybe you too, could do with a bit more clarity, and love, when it comes to dealing with our emotions, expectations and responsibilities, around coming out, but also when it comes to our families and love in general.
