Your right to speak comes with the duty to listenAmit Kalantri
Hello, I’m Lisanne and I create content for this, – and other websites. Welcome to my personal blog, where I share about the people I meet, the books I’m reading, and what I’m learning.
Why I do what I do
I write articles to trigger conversations. There are always areas of vast silence in any culture: subjects we don’t like to talk about. I like to go into those areas and come back from silence with something to say.
To me there is no bigger joy than writing about ideas that are worth spreading, sharing personal lessons that may be useful for you or sharing books that may broaden your perspective on things.
Therefore, my content is into the business of changing mindsets and broadening perspectives. For example, the first blog that I wrote is called like this: How we should actually define success. I brought this thought of mine to the blog because how we as a society define success has been in my mind for years. Most of the times it’s defined in a narrow way, that is often not true to who people actually are and what they actually need in life.
So blogging has become one of my greatest loves because it not only allows me to speak my truth and to trigger conversations on important and inspiring subjects – it also helps me to get in touch with like-minded people like you.
Finding likeminded people on platforms like this could be a great start to not only talk about change, but actually be the change we all want to see in the world.
How I do it
I believe that if you can do what you love the most, do best and be happy, you’re further along in life than most people. I truly believe in the power of stories: if you know better, you do better. I also truly believe in ideas, to make your life and that of others in certain ways better.
So the thing is: I’ve never been interested in using the platform as a way to show my wealthy lifestyle to people, or to showcase who your (famous) friends are to gain some sort of a status with it. But I do am in the business of allowing people to see the best of themselves through the work that I do and the stories that I am able to tell. That’s what I try to do with everything that I do. Everytime I write a blog post. Everytime I am invited somewhere.
Basically I want to use my blogging platform as a force for good. I want to use it in a meaningful way by sharing thoughts and ideas of myself and (extra) ordinary others. At the end of the day with the hope that it is gonna bring some more meaning, joy and wisdom to your life to make the best of it yourself.
