Enjoy the process rather be anxious over the result, be brave enough to follow your instincts and dare be different. Going against the mainstream is not easy. We are trained to fit in. From the moment we start moving we know restraints, confinement, little space. We are training to occupy and mess our own personal… Continue reading Dare Be Yourself
They say the more often you post blogs, the more traffic you get. Weekly blog posts, as opposed to daily ones, bring in only a third of the traffic. Now, the questions are: what are my priorities and how do I effectively invest my energy in what matters? One thing I know is that I… Continue reading It is true!
This marketing stuff is a vicious [circle] circus! Know your audience, know how to reach them, know what they want and provide it... and don't forget to let them know you give them added value!

I will switch from daily to weekly, and hopefully come up with more substantial content. Thank you for your understanding. Meanwhile... Stay safe. God bless you.
I am about to embark on a new creative project, and I have to admit: I am at a loss here. That's right. I do creative writing. The main character is one complex individual, full shades of darkness and yet that parades as a light bearer. What a challenge! How to portray light.. then a… Continue reading Thinking Through
I am excited. My landlord is "remodeling" my bathroom. Okay, remodeling might be too strong a word here, but there will be a change. The protection walls above the bath tub will be renewed... as the older ones are cracked and letting water into the wall. There is no say how much water damage there… Continue reading New, Brand New
How healthy is it go against our desire? I am not talking about wanting a jelly doughnut or a chocolate bar. I am referring to the difficult situations in which we let ourselves get stuck or in which we are thrown into by life's events. I think there is a fine line between a situation… Continue reading Make it or Break – a Choice
