WHAT’S THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL MAGIC
Any moment in which we are fully present. Being in the moment can make something as simple as a light filtering through the trees, a bite of food, a car ride or post-swim water droplets on your skin, seem like the most magical thing in the world.
DESCRIBE YOUR GIRLBOSS MOMENT.
Every moment in which I actively choose what's best for me, based on my values, what I think is important and what I want out of life - despite what other people are doing or saying.
HOW DID YOU LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN?
By actively choosing to surround myself with the type of women I would be proud to become, I have been taught that true self-confidence and an overruling sense of self love are the most important things when it comes to true womanhood.
WHO TAUGHT YOU WHAT LOVE IS?
It's something I'm still slowly teaching myself, every day.
WHAT IS INTIMACY?
Losing the urge to want to be perfect all the time! Because gosh, it takes me a while to show the unravelled, crying, dirty-dishes in the sink side of me to anyone.
WHAT DID YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU?
- The value of independence.
- A type of unconditional, selfless love that I won't be able to find anywhere else.
- To always put myself first, and to stick to my values! This has allowed me to easily walk away from many situations, people (read: boys) and things that were clearly not meant for me.
- Being a (strong) woman will often mean that you'll have to fight a little harder to be taken seriously, and sometimes it might have to take a little force to get your ideas out there, or your voice heard. With this being said, I also saw that it is possible to remain soft, kind and loving whilst doing so.
