Hi, I’m Charlotte Koenka. Welcome to my blog! I write about personal growth and parenting.
My blog journals my search for authenticity. A journey sabotaged by the practicalities, and chaos, of Dutch daily life.
“Or is it the other way around?”
I’m a thirty-something writer and entrepreneur, a second vocation. I worked relentlessly in corporate consulting for more than a decade, I was successful and miserable.
My life changed when I damaged my abdominal nerves giving birth. Trapped in my body I was forced to look inwards and accept my vulnerability. I didn’t like what I saw; I’d forgotten my humanity.
Every week I post a new tumultuous, introspective, and often awkward adventure.
