Hellooooooooo 2015!

A happy & healthy New Year to you! I wonder what 2015 is going to bring.

In the meantime I had that date with the positive psychologist. It was nice to have a conversation with someone who doesn’t know me that well. I got some new insights and I hope that will help me finding my way through all the job searching I’m busy with. At least I know myself a little better 🙂

Most of the days I’m busy finetuning my LinkedIn profile, resume, job applications and expanding and keeping up with my network. And a lot of soul searching. Next step: being more visible and present!


Happy New Year

Happy New Year! What is your New Year’s resolution? Mine is to continue a positive way of thinking and be the kindest person I can be. I will be open to everyone who approaches me, wherever, whenever 😀 You never know what can blossom from a message or conversation.

I also want to try to treat people they way I would like to be treated and I started with that during my stay at the Thon Hotel in Brussels. In line with the Train Girl project, which is all about personal attention, I left a note for the maid who would clean the room after my departure. I mean, everybody can leave some money but that’s too easy 😉 I took the time to write something personal.

Note Brussels

I had a great time this week and can’t wait to see what 2013 will bring!

Train Girl related updates

Last week I received an invitation to connect on LinkedIn. It was from a guy and he included a message in the invitation. He wrote that he was very enthusiastic about the Train Girl initiative! I replied to him that he just had to let me know if he wanted to join. And so he did, he would do anything to help. That’s why I have sent him a Train Guy button 😀

On Thursday I made a small trip to The Hague with a friend. On our way back we drove through the ‘Train Girl neighborhood’ as I call it 😉 It reminded me of the guy I got to know there and was wondering how it was going now with Christmas and New Year coming up. So I decided to send him a Christmas card to let him know that at least somebody is thinking about him since he doesn’t have a lot of people around to take care of him.

Today I checked if my article about Train Girl was still published on the MSN website. Yes it was and to my surprise it was shared 18 times on Facebook. If it is true, that means that more and more people are getting to know about the initiative! Which is really great!
