When One Door Closes

We all have heard of the phrase: ”When one door closes, another opens.” And although a lot of people lean towards this wisdom, a lot of other people don’t. I have my own point of view when it comes to this, but it might not be what you think it is….

I Am Now Also On YouTube

Yes, you read that right! I’m now also publishing content on YouTube. I’ve been working on this for quite a while now and I’m super happy to finally share it with you.

This is my very first YouTube video and channel. However, the content on my channel will be different than what I post on my blog.

What is going to be the difference?

It’s not that much of a difference, to be honest. On both platforms I focus on spreading positivity and inspiring you amazing guys and gals. Simply explained: my blog = my words of wisdom and inspiration, my channel = others’ words of wisdom and inspiration but edited by me.

I’ve never been a good painter or musician but I love to write and edit videos. I love to create content. To create my own art and if I can inspire others by doing that, then my life is complete.

So without any further ado, feel free to check out my video below and if you enjoyed it don’t forget to like and subscribe! Have an amazing sunday! 💋

About the blogger

It all started on October 7th, 1996 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Well, the blogging part didn’t start of course, it’s the date when I was born but you probably figured that out already! Anyway, the nurse at the hospital almost gave me away to the wrong family. She got my momma shook, that’s for sure! Wait, where was I going with this? Oh yes, welcome to my blog!


It’s just in my nature

I’ve always been the type of gal who walked her own path. I’ve almost had every hairstyle, went from Goth, to Hip-Hop to Punk and all of that in one week. Love to binge watch Star Wars and I listen to anything from epic orchestral to pure metalcore. 

 

I’ve always embraced self expression, because it made me who I am today. A nerdy metalhead who loves makeup and nature. But there has always been one thing in particular that I’ve always had within me and never changed. I like to make people laugh and make them feel good about themselves.

metal gigs are the key to my heart.

Not a day goes by, that I don’t crack a joke and make someone laugh. I’ll always find a reason to crack a joke. It’s just in my nature. And it’s not because I want people to find me funny, because hunny, I laugh the hardest at my own jokes, lol! This nature also reflects on to my writing style.

I don’t do boring, I do not want to blend in. To be different is to be interesting. You’re able to share something new with someone, and with that you can inspire.

Positivity is such a beautiful topic to write about in general. And I really love to ”own the words”, if that makes any sense. What I mean by that is, that even though you guys and gals can’t see or hear me, you still can get my vibe through my writing. It’s like we’re hanging out, having a deep conversation while drinking Starbies, but not really. And I’m like, giving advise and stuff.

I’m just a farm boy, really

I’d like to compare myself to Luke Skywalker. Not because I believe I’m a Jedi (which I actually do but let’s keep that between you and me 😉) It’s because he was once just a farmboy. A farmboy who eventually became a Jedi Master and legend.

 

Now if you’re not a Star Wars fan you probably have no clue what the fuck I’m talking about. But long story short, we all start from nothing. But as life continues, we see, hear feel, learn and eventually adapt. There is failure, there is lessons to be learned, there is loss, grieve and everything in between. But that is what makes us who we are today. Everything you’re going through in life is for a reason and that my friend, is the Luke Skywalker philosophy I believe in. 

 

It fills my heart

Although I like to make jokes and spaghetti, I can also be really serious – from time to time, of course. Besides all the funny jokes, I still keep the moral of the story in mind. I take it very seriously because those who read my posts, might be going through a really though time.

I find it very satisfying to help people. I’ve always had that mindset and I knew ever since I was a little girl, that I was going to do something with that gift, because in all honesty that is what helping people is, to me.

I will never take that for granted and I am so thankful that I’ve been given this opportunity. I put my heart and soul into everything I do, because I believe that by sharing your passion with true intentions, it will reflect on what you’re trying to put out there for the world to read.

And since laughter is very important too, I will always – just like in real life – find a reason to crack a joke and hopefully make you laugh. Because at the end of the day, hope is all we can count on and what will get us through the day. ❤

Life has its way of throwing curveballs at you, and that can be pretty tough, challenging and often frustrating. That’s why I want to give you the optimism and strength you are looking for to get through this. And for sure, there are many blogs on the web that can provide you this, but they aren’t a farm boy that destroyed the Death Star. #JustSaying

Failure Teaches You Things You Don’t Learn From Success

Is failure really that bad? Or is it something we should be thankful for? I was inspired to write this blog post after I finished watching Episode #1041 of The Joe Rogan Experience. It was this part in particular. I love to listen to his podcasts because they’re always so inspiring, interesting and motivational to me. So without any further ado, I hope you enjoy! (because it took me quite some time to write. Ugh, the things I do for my precious readers. *insert heart emoji here*)

Stop Explaining Yourself

What did you say? You no longer want to explain yourself to people, but you don’t know how? See, I already thought I heard a vague voice in the distance asking me this, while I was sitting on the toilet, scrolling through my Insta feed…Wait, what? I said sitting not shitting, right? Anyway, let’s get to it!

Believe It Or Not: You Are Actually a True Fighter

Can you imagine yourself having a championship fight against Conor McGregor? I know what you’re thinking: ”Dounia, where the hell are you going with this!?’ But hold on, because what if I told you, that you might be in that exact fight (kinda) without even realizing it?
