2021, The Year of the Heart
Updated: Jan 6
It's been a long time since I've written something on my blog. I've been busy riding the crazy waves during these challenging but also interesting times.
For whoever reads this: I hope you are doing well and I wish you all the best for 2021. May all your dreams come true.
Since my first blog post, I've been focusing on learning, creating and healing. We live in a world with so much trauma. The only way to heal the world is to start with yourself. Besides creating new art, following courses, going outside in nature, listening to inspiring people, building my business and things like that, I also found the power of stillness. Being quiet and listening to what is going on inside of me has been an amazing journey and here I find all the answers. When the external world seems so chaotic and hopeless, calmness and truth lie inside of us.
My creativity also has been a way to move forward, a distraction from all the noise in the external world and a way to grow.
Believe me, I've had many moments that I wanted to give up. My limiting beliefs would kick in, trying to make me feel powerless. I've been feeling completely helpless at times but then there was always this inner nudge telling me to keep going.
I not only believe in the healing power of art and creativity. I also believe that it's every human being's right to develop their own talents and skills. I believe we are transitioning into a new world where creating is more important than ever before. And not only that, co-creation will be the way forward.
Together we can build a beautiful world based on love, compassion, kindness, harmony, peace, freedom and abundance for all beings.
Let's make 2021 the year of the heart.
