If you cannot hear the sound of the genuine in you, you will all of your life spend your days on the end of strings that somebody else pulls
- Howard Thurmann
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Howard Thurman
Just for a moment, let go of all the what if’s..
Close your eyes and imagine yourself 5 years from now. Watch yourself. First you notice that you feel alive. Look around. What and who do you see around you? How does this future look? Excited, happy, free of fear? Do you feel the happiness and adventure that runs through you?
Ask yourself what you are working on. What makes you happy? How do you spend your days?
Open your eyes and realize that if you want too, you are just the younger version of the person you saw just a moment ago.
.So what makes you feel alive? How does a day in that life look like? How much innovation is there?
I believe that not only your world but the entire world would benefit if you did something that really matters to you. Because if we dedicate our energy to the things that matter to us, we feel alive and inspire others to follow the things that matter to them as well, it’s infectious. We would have a lot less depressed and frustrated people, dedicating their time to Netflix instead of what matters to them most. If we live a life that matters to us, that’s makes a change, that changes the whole world.
We live in a beautiful time where possibilities are infinite and the goal of you living that life that matters to you is more real and possible than ever before.
You have only so much time on this world. And the clock is ticking.
I want you to live that life that matters. That is what makes me really happy and matters to me most.
As survivors of abuse we are imprinted that we don’t matter. That we mustn’t speak out. That we are overreacting. That what we are feeling isn’t true. We start doubting ourselves.
And deep down, you know it isn’t true.
“I want to feel alive, there has to be another way..”
That’s the thought that lead you here. That’s the thought that starts it all.
And you are right. There is another way. There is a way to a new life and it is possible for you too!
I know what you are going through.
I have been there. I am the survivor of sexual abuse by an uncle, rape and domestic violence (physically, mentally and financially) by my abusive ex-partner. I know all the processes psychologically and physically where you have to go through in order to move on to that better life.
And it isn’t gonna be easy.
Although our stories may be different, our emotions are the same. And emotions can be changed by changing how you look at things. And that isn’t always cured with soft gloves. It takes massive effort, time and energy to make your transformation. Change starts with (better) questions and believe me, I will ask you tough, confronting questions. Even better; You will ask yourself tough confronting questions. That is what you need to break free from the live you are in right now and to live the life worth meaning.
Your new path will be about learning, exploring, reading, traveling whatever it takes to get to know and understand yourself, your ways of thinking, push yourself into the lives we truly want.
It is time to get rid of the sand in your eyes and start living.
So what do we do.
I will share with you how to start LifeSurfing. And because the most of us are survivors of abuse, I will tell a lot of how to deal with feelings like fear, anxiety and to create selflove, how to deal with control issues and how to love again. But my passion is to actively help you transition. That’s why we learn a lot about making transitions. Transitions in not only from survivor to thriver, but also the transition to make new life choices and make your dream life a reality.
You are not a solo traveler. Go outside. Count the women and men you see. Realize that 1 out of 3 has experienced some sort of violence, either sexually or domestically. Yes, the numbers are high for men too. Joining LifeSurfer means becoming a part of something much bigger. A community of people viewing the world the same way, having the same goals; to do things that matters to, makes us come alive and thus making the world a better place.
It’s a great company to travel with.
We all have dreams and if we use that dream, we benefit another.
Come along and join our tribe.
