About Me

After almost seven years working for the Dutch Police, I realised that this job wasn’t good for my mental health. Besides the horrible sh*t I saw during my career, I filled my private life with distractions. An insatiable lifestyle that didn’t make me happy. I decided to rent my house and give VanLife a try. I rediscovered myself and looked at life from a completely different angle. I suddenly felt free and could see where things in our society got messed up, and I still see many people struggling with the same stuff as me. So I have to share this with you! #vanlife didn’t give the desired effect to help others, so that’s why I redesigned my blog again. “the final version.”

My mission

Help others to find sustainable happiness

Since puberty, I have experienced many emotional highs and deep lows in my life. Every time when I convinced myself I figured it out, it fell apart, and dark times followed. From failed relations to serious depression. However, even when we overcome these rollercoaster rides and learn a lot, some behaviours or beliefs get conditioned. Some of them don’t make sense at all and are hard to change by yourself. Check out my blog for my personal stories and projects.
