“Dear Hate” by Maren Morris and Vince Gill

  With everything going on in the world and always hearing and seeing bad news everywhere, I can get a bit overwhelmed and emotional. It really makes me think why people feel the need to hurt other people. And not just anyone, but innocent people with families, friends, hopes and dreams. People who do not…

Movie Review: Mother!

You’ll get there

“The strongest factor for success is self-esteem. Believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, believing you will get it.” This quote is something I have been struggling with a lot the last period of time.

Is it fall yet?

A lot of people get annoyed with me every time I say I’m excited for fall. They’re like: What are you saying, it hasn’t even really been summer yet. And that is exactly the reason why I want it to be fall. This year the summer doesn’t even feel like summer. In the Netherlands we…

Quote of the day

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank…

No Valentine? No problem!

It is Valentine’s day! “Yaaay” for some people. “Oh no” for all the single people. Are you also single like me and you do not have a Valentine’s day date? That is totally fine. Why is it that we make this day more special than any other day? If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend,…

Monday

I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live…
