Yep, I do realize that I’ve been awfully silent lately… Well let me start by telling you what the plan was and most of all, what made me change it! Ok, once in a while my inner-nomad feels the urge to pack my bags and go wherever the road leads me. After almost 8 ½ months of non-stop working, my inner-nomad woke up and started to emotionally prepare me, to go travel the world and the seven seas, for a week or two. Simply wake up one morning, call the office (yes, I had been smart enough to leave a warning already a week before), get into the car and follow the sun.
Now, I’m flexible by nature. Kind of like that vibe. But what universal mastermind came up with the ridiculous plan to stop me in a very clumsy way? Ok, I do admit, I might have been a bit too tired to go for a long road trip. I agree with that one. Yet a simple flue might have done the trick! Nope, the universe had other plans, as apparently they are smart enough out there to mistrust me with the flue. Yes, yes, I’m stubborn enough indeed, not to let a flue attack hold me back. Again I plea guilty…
So what did happen? While the day before ‘the night that made me change my plans’ I had stated in an interview with Fashionscene, (Dutch Pride column) that I was ready to go on a holiday, 24 hours later I lay flat down on the street. Yep, not so elegant! I had trembled over my own feet, while walking the dog… Full weight on my kneecap! Yep!
Well, I do believe in mind power, but in this case even my mind couldn’t help me! At this point, my suitcase was the least of my worries, as you should know: I live on the first floor! And no, these fun old Amsterdam houses are not equipped with an elevator. On top I’ve got a dog to walk. Oops!
Lucky me, my friends came to the rescue (a big big THANK YOU!!!). Each of them took turns, got me my groceries and so on. My stubborn nature didn’t get me very far, as whenever I gave it a try, my knee simply didn’t agree. So instead of a holiday I ran a small home office and decided to work on a ‘secret’ project, I’ve been working on for a while now. And yes, I now have to say that I’m somehow grateful for this ‘divine intervention’, as I finally noticed how much I physically needed this state of ‘nothingness’.
Can I walk? Yes, and I’m very grateful for that. As I never confessed to anyone, besides my inner-circle, that I do suffer from a rheumatic disorder, so the severe amount of arthroses in my bones slows down the healing process of a ‘simple’ accident, such as this. Why tell you now? Probably because part of me always feels the need to shout out, that no matter what, you can always try to beat the odds and follow your dreams!
Oh, that takes me to another subject…I owe you all a major THANK YOU too! Why? Because our new So PR website, achieved the magical score of 99.538 visits within the first two days of its launch! WOW!
C’est tout! Looking forward to see you back soon for another unexpected rollercoaster ride throughout the unpredictable universe...
For now remember just one more thing:
“You can’t plan life, but you can always learn how to make perfect use of the tools at hand.”
