Why you must be yourself #3

July 31st, 2014

Have you seen this old Kung Fu movies where the young climbs a mountain to find a wise old man and asks him for the meaning of life? I did and there was never an answer but the advice to go out and find it for yourself. For the last quote on Being Different I give you some wise words I like very much. They don’t tell you the meaning of life but might help you find it.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt was a very smart woman, every time I read her quotes it feels like the world gets brighter a bit…Now I won’t feel bad anymore if I get criticized, that’s just how it is, right?

John Steinbeck quote

There are many reasons why it’s easier to adapt but I won’t tell you any of them. This week let’s focus on why not, again. But this time take a notebook and copy for your own good.

Even in the hottest and humid summer there are days when it feels chilly just to hit you with some heat wave as soon as you are too far to go change into real summer clothes again. For this reason we have to learn how to be masters of disguise so summer won’t make a fool of us. I combine a denim jacket with a surfer dress and flat sneakers…it’s wind-protection, rain-protection for the feet and if the humidity level rises suddenly I can take the top sheet of and walk around in a cool summer dress.

Dutch Holidays – The Beach

July 26th, 2014

Beach Kijkduin The Hague

Long sand beaches, the sun shining at around 32˚C and tanned blond guys jogging down the beach promenade, yes we are still in the Netherlands. My first trip to the beach was a rather cold one as the 1st of January is a traditional beach visiting day. For some reason they even go to swim on this day. But if you catch a good summer day and go to a place like Kijkduin or Scheveningen, dutch summer is quite enjoyable. You might not go for a long swim but you definitely get tanned, eat fish and feel the salty breeze.
