The struggle is real or is it?

sunrise-1756274_640

I don’t know about you but I am freaking out sometimes and only because my mind allows me to. I wake up in the same bed, with the same roof over my head, food is on the table and I am surrounded by amazing people.

So really nothing to complain, right?

According to United Nations 1.6 billion don’t even have a proper house and 844 million don’t have decent water to drink.

When I read these numbers I wonder what I am concerned about in my life?

Why can’t I always be happy?

The Journey is life!

The journey is life, are you living the life you desire?IMG_7510.jpg

Are you surrounding yourself with people that lift your spirit?

To easy can I fall into old habits and find myself going through a PATTERN that now I even recognise from the past but still repeat. Often I feel guilt about not being somewhere else but where I am and I have to remind myself that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and the same goes for you.

Accepting the life we have realising that everything is temporary and being grateful for what we have is a big step towards inner peace and happiness. So easily said, yet sometimes forgotten in the rush of the day or the stress we put on us.

We want to be entertained and confused with a reality that isn’t ours, having trust in ourself is sometimes a hard exercise that we need to repeat.

Let’s start a movement and see how it changes our life.

Love and always ciao for now, Hendrik

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,

 

Hendrik

 

I see your curls in my dreams short and golden they bounce in the sunset over the ocean. Feeling your arms rapped around my shoulders hold me tight, hold me tight this might be our last night. 

You never know when it’s gonna end so enjoy every moment well spent and be the light that you are since we are galaxies within stars. 

Maybe one day we wake up from this dream called life and wonder what the fuss was all about? 

Reunited with all and non. 

Until then let’s be the sun. My unborn sons and daughters, don’t make the same mistakes I did be new and free and stay off the grid. Shine like only you can shine, grow like only you can grow. 

This is the therapy that I take, I let it out don’t care if it’s fake get a rake and shake a leg. I’m done for today hurray. 

P.s.: just do what feels right and be happy. 

Hope you enjoy 

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.

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.

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.
