Vlog #52 I am Exactly where I have to be!

How many people just run through life and never take the time to stand still? I feel that it’s natural to have a sabbatical from time to time (this is my fourth sabbatical). Life has seasons too.

I grew up with a father who learned us to work hard and achieve success. But life isn’t only about working hard and achieving your goals, right?

What does really matter to me?

Since my agenda is not fully booked with my Retreats at the moment I am questioning myself again: ‘What does really matter to me?

To me this is family, relationships, having inner peace and health. At the moment I am focussing on my heath.

It’s a luxury to me that I am spending so much time with my family. I see my parents, my sisters and my 2 nephews and 2 nieces almost every day. I am not used to see them so much. So I see this as a unique time.

I open myself to new possibilities !

This week makes me realise how important the people around you are. It’s great to really make time for each other, truly listen and be there when you need each other. This makes me very, very happy.

When you let go of everything, everything is possible! I feel so young, so free and that life is an adventure.  I don’t have the answers. I can worry about it, think about is, but it will not give me the solution. Instead I wonder and I ask life: Tell me, show me, guide me and I will follow.

I am curious like a child and I feel that I am exactly where I need to be. I can not plan ahead. Life is forcing me to be in the moment and make the best of it right now. I open myself for all possibilities. Knowing that life takes care of me.


In my new vlogs I take you with me on my journey what happens when you let go of everything that has been identifying who you are? I see this as a new Adventure. I am not sure what the future holds for me. At the moment I am recovering that all the things that happened so far. I let myself be guided by my inner voice. I TRUST!

Terugblik 2020 – Vooruitzicht 2021

Wauw! Terugblikken op 2020. Het voelt alsof dit jaar vele hoofdstukken heeft gekend. In ieder geval 2 hele duidelijk. Dat is een hoofdstuk voor de Covid en een hoofdstuk terwijl de Covid crisis gaande is. Wat heeft dit voor mij gebracht? Hoe heb ik dit ervaren?

Vlog#55 Everything Happens for a Reason

I continue my journey on Bali and I feel so much inner peace, acceptance and appreciation. That’s exactly the spirit of the island. The energy in Ubud is so peaceful and relaxing. I don’t feel the need to achieve anything at the moment. Just live in the moment and being in the now. If you live in the now and you let life take control, everything can happen.
