I am a 30-ish Dutch female trying to conquer the world. I think you could say I’m a late bloomer. But better late than never. Did you know there are a lof of amazing people who are late bloomers? Of course I can’t remember exactly who right now, but they’re epic. Just trust me on that one.
I looked it up on Google. I can’t stand not knowing the answer to my own question. Colonel Sander was already 65 when he founded KFC. Vivian Westwood was 36 when she opened her first punk clothing store. The ever awesome actress Helen Mirren got her first big role when she was 45. Toni Morisson published her first novel at age 4o. Diana Nyad was 64 when she swam from Cuba to Florida without a shark case. Chef Julia Child learned how to cook in her 40’s. I could go on and on. To be honest it gives me hope, I’m not the only one, who gets her life together and already being in her thirties. That means I still could conquer the world!
Last february I started college (again). It will be a few years until I have my Bachelor degree. But than again better late than never. I finally found out what I really like to do and it’s okay to do things I enjoy. A few things I enjoy: yoga, Crossfit, running, writing, drawing, reading, trying new recipes, just being lazy, play guitar, riding my motorcycle…
My goals? For 2015 run my first marathon. I did two half marathons and now I finally decided to the entire 26.2 mile. Travel more than I did last few years. That won’t be very difficult, because I didn’t travel that much lately. If you want to sponsor me, always welcome! I will combine those two, in trip to Oslo where I will run my marathon.
Long term goals? Finally finish my book and of course publish it. And then write some more… 😉 And just stay healthy and happy.
