The other day, a friend and I were strolling along the streets of Brussels, having a conversation about everything and the world. We talked about mutual friends and acquaintances and at some point, about podcasts. My friend suggested that it could be really fun to create our own podcast, which is probably true. But then … Continue reading The ‘Thing’
Ah, avoidance – my constant companion and nemesis. One of the sources of my frustration and genuine interest at the same time. I used to love playing dodgeball as a kid and I was quite good at it, too. Little did I know that dodging / avoiding was a skill I’d carry with me well … Continue reading Dodgeball in Real Life (AKA Avoidance)
Pun intended! As a thirty-something year-old human being, I noticed that conversations tend to shift to the topic of kids – having them, wanting them, planning on having or not having them, relatives and friends having them, and so on – much more often than a few years ago. It took me a while to … Continue reading I Kid You Not, This Is Important!
[The following post was partly inspired by two books I’ve recently been reading, both of which surprised me in the best way possible. I can recommend them to women and parents of girls in particular, and to everyone else: – More Myself by Alicia Keys (contains valuable insight for women especially) – Untamed by Glennon … Continue reading De-Normalising the Normal
To lighten the mood a little bit, I decided to write a post that slightly deviates from my usual, maybe slightly “heavy” writing style, inspired by a quite uplifting talk I recently had with a friend about all the weird, interesting and even funny things that we experienced while dating. While those experiences aren’t always … Continue reading A Year of Dating
I’m feeling a little bit off, experiencing an amount of discomfort that’s neither overwhelming nor negligible, but just enough for it to be prevalent throughout the day. Irritated and irritable beyond reason. In constant search of motivation. Fighting against myself along every single step I take. Antsy and tired, restless and in desperate need of … Continue reading Paradoxical Rambling
I feel like I’m surrounded by people who don’t seem to be happy. A lot of them are complaining about a myriad of things and seem disappointed by various life events or even life in general. I’m actually guilty of occasionally being a complainer myself − some days just suck, am I right? Given that … Continue reading Why Is Nobody Happy Anymore?
Before I share my latest ramblings with you, I’d like to give you a little update on how I’m doing. I’m really happy that the number of people who read my posts is increasing (yaaaaay!), but some of my readers expressed their concerns about my well-being, given that the things I write about are usually … Continue reading Scrambled Thoughts
Hello old friend. I haven’t seen you like this in a little while. You’ve always been around, I know that, lurking in the corners and watching me from afar, waiting for the appropriate moment to come see me face to face. I haven’t missed you, to be honest. I like having you around in the … Continue reading Hello Old Friend
I’m really mad at the universe these days. I feel like I’m trying really hard and still, it doesn’t seem to be willing to grant me credit for my efforts. All it seems to be doing is get my hopes up and then crush them with such force that I’m left gasping for air, feeling … Continue reading The F*ck, Universe?
