When I talk about creating a life of passion and purpose, people are quick to list what they would need. It’s natural: We think in terms of what we’re missing.
What if you shifted your thoughts towards what you need to lose? It’s a whole new perspective: instead of acquiring something, lose what stands in the way of the joy, passion and purpose you already have inside.
Your misson today is to learn 3 things you need to let go of for a life of passion and purpose.

Things you need to let go of #1: The need to be busy
This is the scourge of our time. Nothing makes people more nervous than not doing anything.
When you do nothing, you meet yourself. Let go of the need to “do” something! You could learn meditation, stop using digital devices after 9 pm, or sit still for 10 minutes every day.
Things you need to let go of #2: Passions as an afterthought
I’m all about pursuing passions, but not just making time for what lights you up. It’s about a shift in your thinking, towards making your passion(s) a priority. That means it’s more important than other things.
Sounds simple? Try and put it into practice. If you pay attention, you’ll notice that you constantly put other things first. You need to radically say “no” to some things to say “yes” to your passion.
Things you need to let go of #3: Not taking breaks
This is related to the first point: If you constantly need to be busy, chances are you’re also working too much. But you can even burn out from your passion if you overdo it. The key is balance.
Consciously remove yourself from your work, family, and passion at regular intervals. Rest, nap, put up your feet. Be “lazy”. It’s not wasted time or being unproductive, it’s making sure that you can continue to show up at your best.
Vlog #4 is here, with updates about the new house and my preparations for moving – as well as the delays and what I’m learning from them. As usual, there’s lots of footage of beautiful Croatia, including even some aerial shots of the new house.
Spring is in full bloom here, so expect lush green, gorgeous lilacs, and bright blue sees! I love to show off beautiful Croatia while I’m telling the story of my new life taking shape.

Footage was a little harder to come by for the first half of this month, because the spring weather has been awfully grey and wet! But never fear, I managed a few spectacular pictures and videos later on, and they’re all featured in the vlog.
A passion for hiking
As a multipassionate, I love many different things, and what some of you might not know is that I have a passion for hiking. Currently I’m a little physically challenged, as you’ll see in the video. I went to a breathtaking place and paid a bit of a price for it. But, see for yourself!

The second vlog episode is here! This time I’ve got big news, so there’s a lot of excitement (as the title states, it follows me as I’m looking for a house in Croatia).
Just like last time, there’s also beautiful footage of Croatian scenery, both in video clips and individual photos. And since it’s Easter, I also introduce you to an Easter specialty Croatians love.
I won’t write any more in this summary, because it’s difficult to tease the content any further without actually giving it away. Just go and watch it already, either above or on YouTube!
