You have arrived
Arriving means a lot to me lately. It means the trip has ended. The search is over. It means it’s time to truly enjoy. To truly live. To accept life as it is. As it comes. To know it could end now and it would have been a good life. In fact, I believe we all have arrived. We just need to believe it. To remember it.
BUCKET LIST NO 1?
Skiing in Niseko, Japan with some amazing friends - eat sushi for breakfast and enjoy apres ski on onsens with sparkling sake.
FAVOURITE PLACE TO FEEL INSPIRED AND WHY?
Bali, LA, Byron Bay, Cape Town,... lands filled with gypsetters, artists, wholesome living, surf vibes, innovation, love and beauty all around all the time. That kind of places.
Sympathy for the devil.
THREE PIECES OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE YOUR YOUNGER SELF
- Trust yourself - we have arrived.
- Give more - we have it all.
- Fear-less - the worst case scenario is going to happen anyway.
Surf, Ski, Golf, Tenis, Football... any.
She or he who has stopped searching and starts living and giving.
MOST INSPIRING PERSON YOU'VE EVER MET?
Laird Hamilton? Wim Hoff? Alejandro Jodorowski? Good question. Don't know actually. I can give you the most inspiring quote I read lately: "Not knowing is the most intimate."
