THE DREAM

I choose to listen to my intuition on a level I haven’t done before.
I reached this level because I’m good with all that is. I look my life and my choices straight in the eye.

What makes you happy?

OATS • SEEDS

Unfortunately there are not many kinds of bread that my body tolerates. I experimented with baking sourdough bread for a while, but I liked it a bit too much, and before I knew it I was eating bread every day.

DONATION (PWYW (F)

Money and what it’s worth. What is it actually? Now if you’re a starter, have just finished your studies, you can’t buy or rent a house because the bank, the landlord, society is afraid that you can’t pay for it. Apparently living is only for the elite these days. I do not understand. My knowledge about the financial world is minimal, but looking in from the outside, it looks like a fairy tale that unnecessarily classifies humanity. 

QUITTING

All my life I’ve been busy quitting things and so I have become a self-proclaimed quitting expert ; ) Alcohol was the first to go. Alcohol was easy for me, it was not an addiction. The fact that I had given up alcohol was harder to accept for those around me than it was for me.

MEDITATION, COFFEE AND LIES

I often hear that people strive for silence in meditation; the ambition to be thoughtless, to silence the mind. My starting point however is being with my thoughts. Look at the thoughts that pass by; what issues are thoughts associated with? The subject of your thoughts is what occupies your mind but you can look at them, research them, as they are the ones you have not yet found peace with.

MEAL PREP

Preparation is crucial with my way of eating. After years of trying and figuring out stuff, it’s now a state of being. It no longer feels like a task, it comes naturally and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Because it is integrated within me, I find it difficult to write something about it that can help you. But I’m going to try.

HAPPY FOOD

Happy food. What is that anyway? There is plenty of discussion going on. Vegans are a hot topic. Junk food, sugar, gluten… Food which we label right or wrong is also news of the day. For me there is no right or wrong food. There is food that makes me feel really good and food that makes me feel really bad, and everything in between. 

TOMATO • COCONUT

Sometimes it can be easy. In my world it usually is, easy and tasteful. Roasted tomatoes with coconut yogurt is just that.

ENDLESS TIME

Manon ( energy therapist ), Kim (yoga teacher and holistic therapist) and I are organizing a retreat in December which we named Endless Time. Time is an interesting concept to me. We often experience obstacles because of it. We never have enough time. But what exactly is time?
