My name is Roeleke, or Roo, to keep it simple.
As long as I can remember, I had always a million questions about WHY we do the things in school, society and the world as we do. It didn’t make sense to me and for a long time I wanted the world ‘out there’ to be different. I was rebelling against everything, waiting for the world to change.
This caused a lot of depression, suffering and pain, till I realized that I was fighting myself and that I only had to give myself permission to choose and find my own way. Scary at first, afraid to be rejected, to fail, to loose and to disappoint family and friend. I felt it was worth the risk of loosing it all for a life that would feel true to me, even though I had no clue what that would look like.
All I knew was that there was more than we are all taught to believe.
Who am I and why am I here in the first place? Something knew and I decided that one day I would know too, so I traveled around the world to find it. I was looking for myself in all kinds of exciting experiences, people, places, cultures, lifestyles and circumstances, but I never found the girl I thought I was looking for.
I discovered that something indescribable is defying ‘me’, what I can either resist and fight or allow and flow with. And most importantly, I am exactly THAT. THAT what knows and that I am already free, no matter where I go or what I do. No matter what happens.
Free to explore and express myself in ways that give me joy.
Free to think, to believe and to play.
Free to be everything and nothing.
Being and radiating this freedom to the best of my ability, in all that I am and all that I do, is what excites me the most. Empowering and elevating life on planet earth trough art in whatever shape or form that may be. To create global change, one heart at the time, with YOU!
