we are all a little fragile

8 October 2017

i believe most, possibly everyone has a story, a beautiful story. And for many years i had the idea of somehow bringing those stories together. Whether i would interview people, or share their stories in a different way. I was sure about one thing; the obstacles of life, the hard times, every struggle we have gone through. They have helped shape us to who we are now.

So now i have the idea of using my blog as a sort of platform where these stories can be told, shared and loved. Because we all go through some shitty things, but we are never alone. We can share stories, nourish love and grow as persons.

I want stories written with a certain quality, not so much in the text but mostly in the underlying message it gives of. And i want my blog to be inspiring and positive. As i said we are never alone, and i really believe that by sharing, we can all benefit.

I always loved writing about the unspoken subjects, taboos and things that make us vulnerable. I haven’t always had the guts to share what i write. But as i grow as a person, i find it easier to talk about topics that are close to me. Things i wish i knew and words that we all need to hear sometimes.

But this goes way beyond me. So it got me thinking, why don’t i introduce some guest writers. Non-commercial, love-based sharing of stories.

I want to start it small by asking my friends and family, from there depending on how that goes, who knows to what it will lead. Maybe one day it will grow to a platform where everyone can share stories. Quality written stories told from the hearth.

I would love to hear what your thoughts are on this, and i am happy to say that the first guest post will be up within next week! And if you are open to share your story, either anonymously or not, please let me know as well and maybe we can work something out!

6 click the heart if you like the idea and want to let me know that :) or you can always leave a comment!

Exciting news!

24 September 2015

Behind the scene’s I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about the blog and it’s content. I’m not too happy with how it is now. I’ve been neglecting my blog and I would love to change it a bit. To make it my personal place for thoughts, inspiration, photography, crafts and other really cool stuff.

I don’t want to have a firm schedule for every week but I would like to add a little bit of structure. At the time I am really liking the idea of monthly returning subjects. Expect monthly goals and every month an article related to photography, as well as an awesome DIY project. The DIY projects will probably be pyrography (woodburning) related. At least for the upcoming time, as I have a lot of really cool stuff I want to try (and share of course).

Besides the monthly returning subjects, I want my blog to be a place where I can dump thoughts and share whatever I like (or even better, love), a place I enjoy putting effort in.

Maybe I’ll write a bit more in English, maybe not. I can’t choose (sorry), which isn’t ideal. I write mostly in Dutch but my thoughts sometimes shift to English, besides some things just sound way better in English.

I have some (in my opinion) great photography plans, I also know that it takes time and my weeks are filled with all kinds of things. At the same time I still have some old projects that I have never finished/shared, so I’m pretty sure I have enough ‘material’ for a while.

The reason I stopped doing the monthly goals was because I felt like it was the only thing I was posting. I did like them and I find it important to set goals, so yeah they will be back pretty soon! Most likely starting in October.

And finally, I just want to point out that I would love to make this an inspiring, cool, nice and positive place on the interwebz and I will do my best to get there (can’t promise anything tho).

I really hope you’re going to like the changes and I hope I can pull it off!

Lots of Love!

By the way, you may have notices the strange focus on the picture, I don’t know what I was thinking. Maybe I wasn’t thinking at all, oops!
