“It’s okay to have a dream, it’s okay to dream big, but for some reason it can’t be difficult. For some reason we won’t allow ourselves to struggle, to take our time. We have a dream or a goal and we wan’t to reach it as quick as possible. You can’t say you are struggling and that you question literally everything that you are doing. It can’t be difficult.., even though it really is difficult.”
It just recently hit me. The thoughts above were mine for the longest time and I still struggle with them. But guess what? It brought me nowhere, it made me inactive and it only invited shadows into my life.
I started my own company a few months ago and I’m doing good, looking at the very few months it exists. Good things take time even tough you may dream of being successful, quick. Succes doesn’t happen over night, a lot of people just make it seem that way. Yes, there are exceptions: 18 years old kids with a house in the Hollywood Hills.., but you’re going to be much more satisfied when you had to work for it, at least if you ask me.
I am still trying to figure out where I want to go, personally and in terms of the business, nothing really stands out for me right now, which is unusual for me. But I guess that when you are sure about something, you are sure, and you don’t have to question it. One of my inspirations, Rory Kramer, always says: ‘Fear is only skin deep.’ I find comfort in that quote, when fear is trying to take over your body, you realise you really want something, you realise you are alive. Then it’s time to ‘run it.’
Enjoy your day and be kind to one another!

I haven’t been really active lately, on the blog, my Instagram, I guess my private life in general. I’ve been focussing on my exams and my internship which starts tomorrow. I’m happy, confused, sad and excited in the same time, because my last semester is about to start and after that… comes graduation. I have absolutely no idea what the future holds, once I had it all figured out but right now, I just don’t know anymore.
Howdy! How is everyone doing? I hope each and everyone of you got to enjoy a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones! Also, may 2017 bring you lot’s of happiness and I hope you’ll remain (or become!) healthy!
“I’m in the war of my life
At the door of my life
Out of time and there’s no where to run.”
Hello! I’m back again! 🙂 I’ve been on the road for a few weeks cruisin’ around America in a Chevy. Some of you who also follow me on Instagram have already seen that it’s been quite a journey. While on the road you come across so many things. A lot of cool things but you also get to see things which leave you thinking. During trips like this, which are actually pretty tough, (in a good way!) you also learn a lot about yourself. I got insights which were pretty obvious to me now I look back on it, but while in a rush of stress and deadlines during school I lost track on them.
So, the other day I was thinking about how much of a rollercoaster the last year of my life has been. I’m about to turn 21 in a month and I had kind of a little ‘throw back’ in my head. I do that from time to time, especially around my birthday. It may sound weird to say since I have a pretty good life, but mostly I feel kind of sad when I look back on the last year. I always feel like I could have made it a better one, and all the plans and dreams I had mostly remain untouched. I know I’m the one to blame for that.
