The Moon is round!

Just as I was getting back into shape again and pushing myself to new limits. Like I would get out of bed and not even look at the coffee machine, instead I would put on my running shoes and go for a run.

The last time I can think of running must have been at school, so a long long time ago.

Well it’s really good and especially when it is a little bit too busy upstairs, then going for a run just clears your mind and helps to refocus.

Especially when there is such a big moon going around like right now.

I was always kind of skeptical with the moon having an effect on our mood or behaviors but I guess it makes sense since the moon moves the ocean around, surely it has an effect on us humans. Since we are like 80% water or something like that…

I was wondering why I felt like borderline schizo, until one of my friends mentioned that we just had a full moon go bye. Ah it clicked and I could relax a little.

So hey don’t stress out there, if you don’t have it all together just yet. Don’t worry too much since the moon is still trying to swoosh the ocean around the planet.

Have a lovely week guys,

Ciao for now, Hendrikgood-night-2904747_640

Where am I now?

Woowza, timezone change and sleep pattern is screwed up! Why you ask?

Well if you have been following my blog, you most likely have discovered that it was a lot about heartbreak and growth. Becoming a better version of myself why also processing a break up that wasn’t for seen and has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Not necessarily in a bad way, well it just isn’t always easy, this life of ours and the relationships that come with it.

Anyway, so I am in Canada right now. Boom!

I have met up with this woman of mine. She wrote on her last letter to me that she loves me and that we will see each other again. This seemed far fetched for me, because I just couldn’t see it at the time (3 month ago now), since I guess I was also using my logic brain to figure things out.
It works perfect sometimes and other times its better to leave the logic brain at home.

Anyway, trust in it, is what she said! So i tried.

It’s quite amazing what the universe can move for you, if only you know what you want and are clear about it.

Well, here I am in the land of maple sirup and moose and bears, which so far I have only seen maple sirup, oh and red dear!!!! Its a very beautiful country from what I can tell after 3 days of being here and I was lucky enough to arrive at just the right time in autumn for when the leaves turn red and yellow and then they drop. This sometimes happens within a couple of days. But I got some good photos I think. I will post them later, since I forgot the camera cable at home.

What now you ask? Now it is the time to connect with the land and its people and particularly with my woman. Will I move here, will we move somewhere else or what is going to happen. First of all we need to trust in the situation and I think from where we have come from, with deportation and travelling half the world, man there is much more exciting stuff ahead of us.

Isn’t this amazing? We have this massive planet and yet it’s become such a small playground for some of us.

I have friends all over the world and it takes maximum a day to fly there and visit them.

So this love story isn’t over yet, which I am very happy about.

I guess the moral of this story is that no matter what happens if it is meant to happen it will happen, even though it is hard to see at times and maybe impossible for the mind to figure out but sometimes life changing circumstances ( like a car accident)  have to happen to bring you back to your loved ones. Oh yeah, that happened, luckily no one got injured just a big shock and a wake up call. So yeah the universe has interesting ways to bring you back together, so trust in it, trust in yourself and follow the pass of love and least resistance.

On that note, ciao for now,

Why all this?

pexels-photo-421160

So why am I actually writing a blog?

I do it because it has become an outlet for me, I remember back in the day when I was a little boy, the first thing I would do when I get stressed out about my parents having a fight, I would lock myself into my room and play music and write. I wouldn’t necessarily call them lyrics but more like little poems of sorts.

It felt good to write out what circus was going on in my mind and not be judged for it. Never would I have thought that it might interest anyone rather than this becoming a blog.   Well it did actually turn into some songs back then but more like punky heavy screamo rock stuff.

Funny enough I didn’t have a traumatising childhood like many others, but I guess whatever is wrong in your little world means everything to you!

So I started writing and I actually never thought that I was any good at it, thanks to my german teacher who never gave me good grades. No I see how screwed up the school system is and well I will not send my children to that horse crap, since you don’t really learn anything about life. Anyway that is a different subject.

So writing and this is my second language is become an outlet again, for heartbreak , as you can see in the other articles and generally letting out what wants to come out.

I believe we all have something amazing to share with this planet and it’s humans but have you found your way of doing it yet?

Whether it is through writing a blog or songs or making pottery, dancing or whatever it may be. Let’s not hold back and just start.

There is two kinds of people in this world. The ones that see the beautiful outcome and the ones that see the long daunting way there. Which one will you be?

Ciao for now, Hendrik

Happy Monday’s

IMG_6494It was a Monday morning, like most Monday mornings, they are not my favourite day of the week. But it turned out to be a good one.

We started work pretty late and as I was working away as the wind was starting to pick up. Now most of you go what, why is that important? Well, if you must know I am a kitesurfer and I get excited like a monkey in a banana plantation! It turns me literally into a child and I want to drop everything and go out and play. I think all my kitesurf friends can relate.

After a couple of month recovering from my sprained foot, I am finally back in the water and it is the best to turn any mundane day into, ok I am ready to die today day!

Even though this Monday wasn’t a mundane one:)

By the way if you want to learn to kite, shoot me a message on facebook/kitewindwater .

So anyway, after getting home and seeing my friends kite from far over the ocean I got down to the beach as quick as I could. It felt like I had to run against the clock, only a couple of minutes left of daylight and who knows what the wind was going to do. I got to the beach set up changed from my work clothes into my wetsuit and of I went.

Double front roll, followed by a nice big air and just screams of joy. At this stage there was only my friend Arry out and I and to our astonishment some whales were breaching just 25 m ahead of us, as in just to say what a beautiful Monday it is, isn’t it? In whalish of course…

So there you have it, the best thing to do, if you feel a bit too much in your head if life pulls you down and you don’t see a way out. Sport, really any kind of sport is great for your heart and mind and body and soul.

By the look of it, we will be kiting again today in Bruns  so come and join us if you like!

Have a happy week everyone and ciao for now,

Hendrik.

Like and share if you dare?!

Holding on to both worlds

pexels-photo (1)

Sometimes in life we have to make decisions that seem hard and painful almost crazy if you ask me. I don’t want to leave this habit of mine, it has served me so well in the past… “Hmm yeah but you have moved on you are grown out of it”.

It could just be eating too much chocolate, guilty!

So why do we for example hold on to friends that no longer serve us as friends?

Yes we may have had a great connection once upon a time, but people change. If you are holding on to the old you are not making room for the new. Whether it be a relationship that no longer is of value to you or a friend who keeps making nasty jokes about you and still you keep having him/her around because you don’t want to be alone.

Cut it out!

But aren’t you more alone with someone that makes you feel empty or even hurt. Let it go and allow new space in. The new can come and wow, if it brings up all these emotions of not wanting to be alone or of recognition then let it come and just accept it.

Thanks for reading and like always leave a comment and subscribe for more wisdom from the elevator.

Ciao for now, Hendrik

What to do when not knowing what to do?

pexels-photo-255463

Just do nothing. Like really just stare at the sky and feel the wind in your hair and be… just be in the moment on this planet right now. Remind yourself that all our problems are just in our heads. That moment you stop and look up into the sky, no matter where you are we all look at the same sky. If you miss home, or are scared of a situation that you have to face in the near future just look up and take a deep breath. You have it amazingly good if you have healthy food on your plate every night, a roof above your head and a comfy bed to sleep in that makes us the most blessed people on this planet. There is a lot of people who don’t have that, yet they are very happy people.

In fact every one in ten people has no access to clean drinking water.

So we run our busy life’s in order to pay the bills and buy the food and buy the stuff that we don’t need to impress people that we don’t know and we forget how huge this universe is and how small we actually are and our problems with it.

Love ourselves and love one another. Ah I sounds like I watched too many chick flicks lately, which I probably have but that’s not the point right now. Sometimes when you run into a person and they cross you in a way just in your head send them also love because that’s probably exactly what they need right now. Flood the whole world with love, through your thoughts, that is and see how things change and unfold in front of you.

Just a short one today but I’ll be back with more wisdom from my backyard on tuesday 🙂 until then have a great weekend and enjoy the sunny days.

Ciao for now, Hendrik and enjoy the cat.
