As I would like to push myself a little more to actually write on my blog, I committed myself to a 30 day blog challenge. In the hectics of daily life, I decided that writing one blog a day is not realistic for me, but I will try to write one blog every two days, with subjects ranging from favourite food to pictures of things I like.
I will extract challenges from different lists I collected, as I did not manage to find one list that has all the subjects I would like to write about. I also created some of my own daily challenges. So welcome to the my very own 30 day challenge 🙂
Feel free to join the challenge if you’d like. I will tag my 30 day challenge posts with ‘Roseyschallenge’, so if you’d like to join, please tag your posts with this tag, so we can read along and share. Good luck!
Day 1: write down 10 random bits about yourself
This can be anything, weird or funny things, personal aspects. Feel free to share whatever you’d like.
1. I believe one person can make a difference. In anything. I have a huge admiration for people like Nelson Mandela, Russian and Chinese human rights activists, and other pioneers who try to make this world a better place. Websites like www.onemen.org encourage the power of the individual. Don’t ever think you are too small or insignificant to make a difference, this quote reminds me often: “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
2. I am a firm believer of Karma. What goes around, comes around. If it works for Justin Timberlake, it works for me. And remember: Karma is only a bitch if you are.
3. I’m in love with my city, Amsterdam. Being born and raised here I grew up to love this city and everything about it. I love the freedom here, the relaxed atmosphere, the variety of people, the canals, the poshness of the south, the multicultural west, the bikes, the small town feeling and above all Queensday. I do believe Amsterdam is one of the most tolerant cities in the world, if not the most tolerant. I feel very lucky to have been born here, and wonder if I could ever settle anywhere else.
4. I love waking up in the morning not knowing what the day is going to bring.
5. I don’t like it when people enter my personal space, especially on public transport. It makes me really uncomfortable when people come and sit next to me when there are loads of other free seats.
6. I admire people who can just leave everything behind, pack their backpack and travel the world without worrying about the future. I wish I could be more like that. Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck in a life I cannot leave behind, with responsibilities I can’t escape. It’s a good life, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I miss the real adventure.
7. I’d love to visit Cambodia and Bolivia.
8. I don’t like it when someone reads my newspaper or magazines before me, i like them fresh and new.
9. I refuse to let fear get in my way of life. I have many fears, and I feel they have become a little stronger the past year, after my dad died, but I refuse to let fear get the overhand. Example, I am not too fond of flying, but I just drink two glasses of wine before I enter the plane, and another one on board, lol. Fear is not rational, and it definitely is a bad advisor.
10. I have no idea if the career path I have chosen is the career I want to pursue. I still expect that one day I will ‘see the light’ and just know what I want to do with my life. I also expect this moment will never come.
