Spring has arrived and those long warm summer evenings are just around the corner. What better to spend your day on the beach with some awesome tunes. Well, then I might just have the perfect mix for you. I met Dre Morel in Bali and together with his sister, he turns the tables across Vancouver/Whistler, Canada. Their mix is a blend of tropical house that you can listen to for ever and ever. If you do not live on a tropical island already, this will bring you there straight away. So head to their SoundCloud and listen to this 1:30 hr.of pure bliss. Below you find one of our favourite ones.
My personality likes variety, it wants to be busy, connect and diversity. I hate to be behind a desk all day long and doing one thing. I want to have options. But at the moment I also notice that I might have too much going on. Not complaining though, as there is nothing better than working with palm trees and surf in your backyard. It is more a matter of realising that if you want to do something well, you have to make choices and focus.
Even though, I know I can cope with a couple of projects, I can’t do 6. My lesson these days is really focus. Not being the almost ADHD-running-around-like-a-chicken-with-its-head-cut-off kind of girl, nope, not that. Focus on those things that are important now, plan forward but not too much as you can not predict what is going to happen. I want to be free, be healthy, live on this island and indulge in the ocean. Soak up sun while driving to get my work done. Meet inspiring people along the way. A new era has started here and can’t wait for the even more awesome things that are going to happen.
I landed in Cambodia a couple of days ago. Siem Reap has a beautiful energy. I am astonished with the sublime temples. Some more than a thousand years old. Majestic. And at the same time erected in humble beauty.
Massive old trees grow intertwined among the stones creating a magic atmosphere. The force of nature prevails and blends with the human ruins of the Khmer empire. I feel a deep sense of peace and connection. That comes from the atmosphere around the temples and nature, but also from the kindness of their people. Cambodians have gone trough rough times. And that is not too long ago. No short in struggles, with a recent war and many victims of the land mines. They, however, have a beautiful enery. They are open, patient and kind. I am amazed how they keep up the positive spirit.
It’s not easy to remain loving and truthful when you are hurt. It’s not easy to remain conpassionate and kind when you suffer. Today, inspired by these beautiful people, I wanted to share this message: Do not get carried away by anger. Do not let hatry lead the way. Pain will come and go. The gift is to remain loving and truthful. In that way we not only help ourselves, but help others following the same path.
Om Shanti Om
We really wanted to share the website and Facebook page of Crispijn as they really inspired us, so they might possibly inspire you as well. Check them out below:
The other day, I mentioned that everything is coming together: work, my health, where I want to stay in Bali, my own brand Reckon. But in all honesty, Reckon is my passion project, I want to pursue this passion but it is something that will take time. Which I have but I also need to be realistic, you need money as it needs investments. BFREE allows me to reach out to people amongst me that are either looking to run their own business and gain some financial independence or who are looking to be healthier. It allows me to do this from anywhere in the world. It is connecting and introducing like-minded souls to what I have been up to and they can become a part of it as well
Someone said the other day: You are turning friends into business, but everyone who knows me, knows that I am a genuine, authentic soul. I hate selling,, in whole honesty, I suck at it. I am just sharing my view on it. If you want to join me on this journey, I salute you, if you are not interested, I salute you to. That’s it.
My entire journey has been an endless road of possibilities and I noticed that I am needed to make solid choices and set priority. That means a little less surfing, but still 4 days a week for at least 2 hours. Something I never had at home. So be careful what you wish for guys, you might just get it.
Today, I realized that a bit more than 1 year ago I handed over my resignation letter to my former employer. With pure astonishment the HR-manager looked at me, she did not see this coming. I left all security, all financial stability and structure behind to start live my dream. Today I realized I am really living it.
Everything is coming together for me in Bali. I have recently joined an amazing team of health and wellness professionals and I am super stoked. Stoked that I can live a life, without sitting behind a desk, being surrounded by incredibly inspiring people who are healthy, wealthy and super ambitious. My chapter has begun and I am sure this will be a pretty damn good one. I am living my life with the motto that I deserve to live the healthiest and happiest life and for me that means that I want to surf as much as possible. But I also want to learn and be creative. The step I took to join the BFREE-team was a no-brainer. I am here to stay and literally live my dream and be free and be well. Check out bfreebwell.com or just reach out to me if you are inspired and want to talk about your possibilities (and I know there are) to do the same. Everything is possible and reckon I am a pretty good example.
If you ever want to hug someone from a distance, give some support or just know someone you are there even though you are on the other side of the world, this song should be your message. Don’t text, don’t mail just send this song and the other end will know exactly what you mean. Oh and of course some credits to Ane Brun.
