Dreams for 2020

I have a dream; a dream to reach for the stars and bring them closer to humanity.

I have a dream that once I live my purpose, I am free to live my highest and truest expression.

I have a dream that once I chose to do what’s difficult, life will become easy.

I have a dream to build something greater than myself.

I have a dream to create a better reality for humanity.

A dream where emotions become navigators for living life at its essence without shame nor guilt.

A dream where authenticity is rewarded with recognition and incentive.

A dream where no matter your skin color, your beliefs, your opinions, and your appearance; you still belong and you feel accepted.

A dream where my son no longer is teased at school because his mother is white and his father is black.

A dream where people at work feel safe to work without judgment, harassment and patronizing behaviors.

A dream where women no longer have to apologize for being feminine while breaking brick ceilings to demand what is only fair. 

A dream where men no longer feel defensive when women demand equality, dignity, and acceptance.

A dream where young girls no longer hide behind the screens of addiction trying to be someone they are not.

A dream where boys get to feel their emotions without being imposed an outdated idea of masculinity.

A dream where mothers go to work without guilt and shame for leaving their children behind as they embrace new ways of living.

A dream where fathers can take parental leave to take care of their newborn without shame, blame, and restrictions.

A dream where diversity has become obsolete as inclusion is the new norm.

A dream where wearing a mask at work becomes a choice and not an obligation.

A dream where we stop advancing our self-interest at the expense of others.

A dream where win-win situations prevail over zero-sum games. 

A dream where we stop fearing change and embrace the opportunities that come along with it.

A dream where seeing our glass half full instead of half empty is a given.

A dream where we feel grounded in an age of disruption.

A dream where honesty and integrity are at the heart of social relations.

A dream where we live from a place of abundance instead of scarcity.

A dream where we invest in our character instead of our appearance.

A dream where we contain our ego and unleash our soul. 

That’s is my dream for the next decade and beyond.

What is your dream?




    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.
