Hi, I’m Maddie and I want to make a difference.
My goal is to inspire others and connect with like-minded people, in an attempt to help create a kinder and healthier world. To share my thoughts and experiences and ask questions, even the uncomfortable ones. To encourage others to break free from their old ways and start asking questions themselves. And to get encouragement and guidance myself, when I need it.
So hopefully this blog will be just that. Inspiring, motivating or at least uplifting to someone out there, because we are all trying to figure out life, how to do something meaningful and to make real connections. And I think the more we share our journey and struggles, the easier it will be.
A little bit about myself...
I was born and raised in Germany. In 2011 I left Munich to travel the world and never really went back. Instead I moved to California and after 4 years moved again - to South Africa.
I was married for almost 5 years. Now I live my hermit life with 5 cats, 2 dogs and an Ostrich in the African bush.
I work remotely as a graphic designer , but I'm also very busy working on myself. My mindset, my health and my dharma (oh yes!). 2021 is the year when I went vegan and am finally starting to raise my voice for the animals and founded an NPO here in South Africa. So as you can see, I'm on my very own journey, too.
When I started I was convinced that nobody was interested in my take on things and that I don't have an inspiring enough story to tell. To be honest I'm still not completely sold on it. But thanks to working on my mindset and listening to countless encouraging podcasts I finally started doubting the voice in my head. The one that kept telling me I shouldn't even bother.
So here I am. Telling my story.
If you’re intrigued and want to join me on my journey, you’re welcome to stick around, otherwise jump ship while you still can!
