My name is Deike Louise. Happy you found me.

Always running around, trying to do as much as possible in one day and setting the bar very high with everything. I neither had a routine or ‘slow’ moments. I did have bad sleep, fast heart beatings throughout the day, irregular breathing and a restless mind. At one point, I decided to give slowness a shot.

Slowing down made me rediscover my intuition. By allowing slowness to join my life, I started to see and value the little things again. Grateful for what I have rather than complaining about what could be better. I gained more focus and find it easier to make decisions.

Every day I remind myself to be in the present. Not worry too much about the future. I realized that everything changes anyway and that’s the only thing I know for sure. And that right now, I enjoy writing and sharing my thoughts with you. Creating a connection with others, is what I love doing most.
