Don’t live your life with hate in your heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate. Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is the remedy. It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.
Remember, the less time you spend hating the people who hurt you, the more time you’ll have to love the people who love you. •
Domitian Gate or Frontinus Gate is on the north of Hierapolis and has two round towers. This gate is the best preserved one. It is also known as Frontinus Gate because it was built by Julius Frontinus (84-86 AD), proconsul of Asia Minor. Then it was dedicated to the Emperor Domitian by Frontinus. It has three openings so is also known as the three gates. One of the towers of the gate is still in good condition today.
The gate at the south end of the main street is the oldest one and was built in 65-86 AD. The lower parts of it are still underground waiting for excavation.
🌲 A little abstract thinking for you.
I kind of wish I had the context to this quote. It’s a poetic thought, but how do you interpret it? What do we consider to be the earth’s intelligence? What does it mean to rise up rooted like a tree? What is the alternative? It’s certainly got me thinking this morning. I’d love to hear what you think when you read this quote. Let me know in the comments!

Day 5: The thing about religious imagery across the world is that every culture interprets the same thought in their own unique way. Not only is the imagery unique, but also the housing in which the portrait or statue of the deity. 🙏
This is a nice little spot in the shade, away from the beating summer sun.
We had the most incredible experience up Kilimanjaro but we were SO happy to see this sign.

Children learn more from what you are then from what you teach...
What kind of blueprint do you give your children?
Do they see you worry about the bills?
Do they hear you complain about your job?
Do the see you being unhappy with the life you created?
I know that is what my kids saw and heard just a few years ago.
As a parent you don’t want them to have those worries and struggles, right?
We just want the best for them.
But how can they? If this is what we give them?
That is why we made the decision as parents to make a shift.
We started to work online so we could travel and show them different cultures and beautiful places so they will have a broader view and know that there are other ways to earn money.
There is no need for traditional jobs, there is no need for living from paycheck to paycheck.
The age we live in now has endless opportunities, endless possibilities.
But Dirk? Why then is not everyone doing that?
Because it’s scary. We would have to learn new skill, we have to step out of our comfort zone, maybe invest in new tools and education.
Find a mentor or people who are already living that freedom lifestyle you want for your kids.
I don’t know if Muriel and I are doing the right thing or promoting the best companies, but what I do know is that I paid of my 300k debt, moved to Costa Rica and living live on our terms.
But most important, I see my kids happy
Isn’t that worth everything?

When you get the choice to sit out or dance, I hope you dance 💫
We are only given one life to live. We have to choose whether to live it cautiously, following the path of least resistance, or to live it fearlessly, breaking out of our comfort zone and taking risks. I plan to do the latter. How about you?
I wheelie love you 🚴♀️💕
We've been taking full advantage of this summer weather with bike rides to the beach and outdoor workouts. No dark cold gyms this summer 🙌

Self confidence is a super power. Once you start believing in yourself, #magic starts happening ✨.
I was not a confident kid at all. But the last couple of years wat helped me was #travelling ✈️. It built my confidence and opened my eyes 👀 in ways I didn’t know were possible (many of you know the power of travel 😉). It made me realize that I am someone who will try anything and it also made me confident enough to say how I feel about who I am.
Where I am today and my beliefs, majority of the credit goes to the traveling 🧳 I have done, #exploring new places, new #culture and #history (also all different kinds of people) has helped me remold my life 🦋
What’s your favorite #destination ? #throwback#weekendmood#memories#traveler#lovetoexplore
