So today started 2018. Just as good a day as any redo your personal blog. My old one, HerveMaas.nl, was a bit of a mess. Mostly because I never had a real use for it. Since I do not want to deal with the hassle of rebuilding that website from scratch and since I think a .com matches better to my ambitions. I decided to redo it.
My blog is still going to be in Dutch and English, but the posts will mostly start out in English. What I will be blogging about will be anything related to my personal development on any topic. Like any real person I’m not one-dimensional, I am not a professional AdWords consultant 24/7, 365 days a year. I am not a snowboarder, volleyballer, gamer, learning expert or loving partner all the time. But I am all these things and more.
Don’t worry, I will try and keep my stories consistent or at least labeled. This blog is first and formost for myself. I want this blog to be a open record on my personal development, writing and story telling. Secondary I want to inspire and motivate you to do new things. Because next to eating well and moving with intent, I believe human have a fundamental need to learn to stay healthy.
Humans need challenge, and learning is one of the biggest challenges we keep facing during our lifetimes. For example, when I was 27 I was fat, lazy and stuck in my life. And then I learned to snowboard. My first all new skill in years which was very much outside of my comfort zone. But that new skill motivated me to start losing weight, get a new job and end my 4 year relationship which was on a dead end. If you want to know that story in more detail, you can do so here.
To get back to the value for you. I’m convinced that doing new things regularly will change your life for the better and I hope my stories about the new shit I do, will help you to take the leap of faith with more ease.
Like I said, I would love to read your questions or remarks in the comments below this post. And if my belief resonates with you I would be very grateful if you would share this (or any other post) with your friends, through any medium.
