Remember why you started

Remember why you started. I recently decided to start over with content creation, and my first step was to reflect on my past experiences. Through meditation I tried to figure out why it has become so important to me for others to like my photography. I’m still working on that, but one of the urges I had after meditating one of the first days since focusing on this question was that I really wanted to check out what Lizzie…

Reflections on photography and life

I recently decided to start over, and step one is to reflect on my past experiences. So in this post I figured I would share some of my reflections.

As a child I had a bright mind. Learning new things came easily to me, without too much effort. Mind you I’m mostly talking about theoretical subjects like maths and languages. I never was particularly practically skilled. Somehow the geeky side of me became a strong component in the way I…

I’m starting over

If you google “How to start over” one of the first hits you’ll get is an article about 7 tips for starting over in life. Now I don’t want to start over in life, I have too many good things going, but I do want to start over with my content creation.

For me this means that I have double vision, spastic voice and great difficulty walking.

My one goal for 2024

Let me tell you about my one goal for 2024.

December is here, and this is usually a time for reflection for me. I’m not one for new years resolutions, but I like to make sure that I actually remember, appreciate and learn from my experiences over the last 12 months. And I also set intentions and goals for the following year. For 2024 I have just one simple goal. But let’s start with 2023.

20 years

20 years ago today I met my wife’s gaze for the first time. And I knew I was home. What followed was one of those magical moments that only happens in the movies. She walked over and asked me “Can I give you a compliment?”. I wasn’t sure how to answer that, but I’m so grateful she didn’t let my insecurities stop her.

My wife is brave and strong, but also sensitive and vulnerable. She’s smart and kind and funny….
