From as far as I can remember (read throughout my teenage years) I was always interested in the bigger picture of life. I ask myself: “What is the purpose of life? Why the hell are we on this earth? What are we supposed to do? And most importantly, why do I do what I do everyday?” But I did not answer these questions.. After all, I was receiving messages from the people around me that well, life is about getting a good degree, a stable job, married, buy a house, some kids, maybe a dog or cat if you’d like to and voilà: you are living the life, you are successful!
Now the first time this ‘belief’ was shaken was when I lost one of the most important people in my life: my grandfather. He passed away so suddenly. I started going back to these questions and I can still hear myself think: “This is not right.This cannot be it.”
I mean the idea of death had put a lot of things in perspective to me. It brought me to a phase where I wanted to live life consciously. You see, we as humans have a conscious and a subconscious mind. To really simplify it: our conscious mind is all about information and rational, our subconscious is about our feelings, instincts and thoughts. So living life consciously meant working on my subconsciousness. (Interesting isn’t?!)
Total bad-ass, thinker, entrepreneur
Khadija Rejdy is passionate, weirdly funny and most of all a crazy adventurer. Belgian with Moroccan roots, that loves to discover the world and its cultures. She has lived and worked in Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Qatar and the UAE. Life for her is all about personal growth, dreams and happiness. She is what we call a true bad-ass and honestly, she is not liking this ‘writing in third person-thing’…
And I did, believe me I did. I spent all of my money on self-development seminars, retreats, conferences, I read books, had meaningful and deep conversations, worked with mentors and life coaches. Plus, I travelled around the globe gaining new perspectives of life. It was a true time of exploration and growth! (Wo)Man I felt great!
A part of me also felt like I should get concrete things done, like maybe getting a ‘real job’, an apartment, etc. So having all that in my backpack, I decided that it was time to go back to the real world. (Looking back now, what a mumbo jumbo was I telling myself and was society telling me. But that is for an other time.) I got a job in a funky company, with amazing responsibilities, and one promotion after the other followed. I bought an apartment, started to ‘settle’ down, having a routine, and I started being comfortable. Too comfortable.
While I was “successful” , I was not that happy with where I was. To be honest I was feeling fuddy-duddy. One day I was asking myself: ‘Yo woman, is this the life you want to live?’ And I was like: ‘No, H to the no.’ And then I was like: ‘So what are you going to do about it?’
I resigned my 'cool-but-not-making-me-happy-job'. I took a break solo traveling and decided that I will live my life spreading happiness and awesomeness by doing what I like through freelance work.
As a freelancer I want to share my expertise and my insights with every entity I work with to co-create magic and have an impact on society.
So, do you have an opportunity wish you see me fit in? Feel free to write or call me so we can connect and make it happen. I am glad
by working with clients around all the things that make me happy and excited to be running on this planet we call Mother Earth, I’ll inspire my environment to recognise, and pursue, whatever it is that makes them smile, feel alive and make their heart go boom-boom-boom!
Thanks for being here.
