Photo by me from my archive.Dear future self, I keep coming back to grief. Wondering why my heart still feels heavy sometimes, I started listening to a new audiobook: You Can Heal Your Heart by Louise Hay & David Kessler. I just saw the title in the Empower You...
Photo by me from my archive.Dear future self, Yesterday I sat down to write this post, but no inspiration hit, so I decided to do something else, scheduling this to be published today. Then this morning called for other things as well, so this post published itself...
Photo by me from my archive.Dear future self, I've started to write a book. Which is why I won't be writing to you every morning until that's finished. But there are quite a few things that can find a place here as well as in the book. Everything is connected....
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...

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.
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.
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.
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?
