I love this video. Portrait of Lotte was filmed by Dutch artist and filmmaker, Frans Hofmeester who filmed his daughter every week for 20 years. It's a beautiful reminder that even though you are just a teenager, you have come so far and accomplished so much. Even if your parents are not filmmakers, you could make a photographic journey of your life so far. You could even write a list of things that you have learnt or achieved since birth. You've learnt to walk, talk, read, write, ride a bike, do math, perhaps you can surf, ride a skateboard, code, paint, pole vault or play a musical instrument - you are awesome!
I have a confession to make - I love Australian Ninja Warrior.
Here are some life lessons from the 2018 series:
This song has beautiful lyrics but no resolution:
How many souls can be crowded together
And all of us feeling alone?
All of us longing for hope.
If you're looking for your purpose, I read these helpful words once:
be kind to yourself, kind to others and kind to the planet.
This is from America's Got Talent earlier in the year but it's such an amazing story.
