Loved ones, families and friends are gathered together to celebrate a sacred holiday.

Some believe, others don’t. Regardless, connecting with our loved ones is what matters.

Many wish they could feel and see their reason for life, the people and connections that matter the most. 

Instead, they accept a reality which is beyond their control. 

Sacrifices which make no sense at all to them as they see their loved ones disappear one after the other.

Sacrifices leaving them out on the streets while others are sleeping in a warm bed with a roof above their head.

They wonder why their existence is less than those of others? 

They wonder what their purpose is on this planet if suffering, pain, and loneliness is all they have?

No words can truly describe what the men and women feel, see and experience during their darkest moments in life. 

No words can capture the loneliness and disconnect they feel at times as if the world has forgotten about their existence. 

On the outside, we appear different in status, titles, functions, and looks. 

On the inside, we are the same humanity, a humanity which will always believe, hope and pray.

Wherever you are at this point and place in life, close your eyes and feel the pain and suffering of those far away.

Remember your blessings and wish them well. 

Help them to feel included in a society of exclusion. 

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

We are all trying to have a human experience in the digital era. Be human within you and beyond. 

Merry Christmas to all humanity.

    Thrive with EQ

    Hi, I am Nadja, a burnout survivor, a resilient human and a creative writer.

    My mission is to help busy professionals achieve Success with Serenity by maximizing their emotional intelligence so that they can excel in all areas of their life with peace of mind!

    I am happily divorced (yes, you read that right!) and my greatest gift in life is my six-year-old son Adam. We live our potential every single day and enjoy each moment of our human experience in the 21st Century.

    I co-authored the best-selling book, 20 Beautiful Women Volume Six, where I shared my journey of belonging growing up as an Empath.

    In my spare time, I enjoy creative writing, meditation and I try very hard to exercise some of the most complex yoga poses!

    I am Dutch; I was born with my heart on my sleeves, my soul on fire and a mouth I can’t control (well, I do control what comes out, but speaking truth to power for positive social change is essential to me).

    I write about emotions and feelings, you know those things that make a lot of people uncomfortable in the digital age.
