My name is Monique van Ooteghem, born and living in the Netherlands, where I share my life with my partner and best friend Ramona and our cat Poemba!
Challenged with Chronic Fatigue for an extended period in my life, with not much energy left to live an active or much of a social life, I became housebound for most of the time. As I was forced to look within and deal with issues raising to the surface, I experienced a personal transformation process.
During this process, I discovered a joy in writing. A perfect way to bring my thoughts and feelings into perspective and at the same time create a new purpose in my life. Thanks to social media I found a way to connect with people. Soon I became part of a beautiful and inspiring community, enriching my life into a deep sense of gratitude and joy.
By growing as a person and expanding my potential, I felt an inner longing to create my own platform. A stage which enables me to share my personal insights, which have supported me to overcome my personal challenges. This was the start of the creation of my website ‘Practical Life Guide’, where I share blogs, led by the whispers of my soul, to inspire others to create a life in balance and authenticity.
The content of my writings is about Life Purpose, Health and Well-being in general. Basically, topics which have the potential to inspire you to create a meaningful and sustainable life, by taking responsibility for your own journey.
As I love sharing my insights with you all, I also encourage you to leave your comments, personal experience or questions you might have.
I love interacting with my readers and get to know you better.
Happy reading and soulful Blessings
