A lot of things are happening...

and one of them is that I am going to merge my websites www.isabelcurdes.com and www.changeyourview.dk into one site which means www.changeyourview.dk will no longer be available. This will happen over the next few days so both sites will be down. There will also be more regular blogposts, new...

Winter...

This is my farewell to the winter...it has been a prickly one ;-) ...where I learned a lot of things I did not expect to learn. The most important learning was that even if you are self-employed and love your ‘work’ (passion), it does not make you invincible - or maybe it even makes you more...

Fear

The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Maybe it is the time of the year with the long dark nights and the grey days or maybe it is just me... Now that I cannot distract myself anymore with equipment choices or decisions about what I want to focus on (see my last blog post) I...

Finding my focus (all puns intended ;-))

One of my first blog posts was about “focusing until it feels right” and while this was about focusing my cameras I have found out over the last few weeks that it also applies to my creative, business and ‘social’ life. During the last two years after I had quit my old job and started my own...

The book that will not be published...

The last two months have been full of decisions for me - some easy, others hard and took a while but the decluttering of my life was not done after the house was ‚clean‘...

More or less?

A few weeks ago I noticed that I was becoming less and less creative. I did not want to get out anymore to make pictures, did not want to work on my book ideas, no interest in reading and learning...that was really bad. So I did what I always do - I analysed the situation and tried to find a...

Metamorphosis

I was overwhelmed by the positive response I got on my last blog post. Thank you all so much for your kind words and for sharing with me your own stories. I often find it easier to put my feelings and dreams into poems and pictures than into "plain text". It gives me more room to leave things unsaid...

Beyond happiness...

When you read this blog post then I actually managed to overcome one of my fears... I have never really talked about the sadness, the darkness and anxiety that has been a part of me as much as my happiness. When I had my burn-out a few years ago I had reached the darkest point in my life - I nearly...

Is less more?

Apart from the concept of wabi sabi which I wrote about in an earlier blog post there is another concept that has become a major part of my life and that is minimalism. When guests visit us in our home the first thing they usually notice and comment on is the amount of space we have. This is not...
