Share Who You Are
Wisdom is to be found in conversation with each other.
I hope you’re doing well wherever you are.
It’s the autumn holidays where I am so I decided to take a bit of a break this week. Instead, I thought it would be interesting to try something new.
Wisdom is found in meaningful conversations with open-minded and generous people.
There are now more than 130 of you (from 42 different countries!) who are subscribed to Seeking Wisdom. That represents a considerable amount of diverse life experience.
That’s why I see this space as a great opportunity to share with each other in an environment of respect, non-judgement and curiosity.
The first step though is to get to know each other better.
So, with that said, I’ll introduce myself:
My name is Ben and I’m a man in my late 30s. I have a wife and two little girls.
I’m of mixed cultural background (Belgian and British) and have lived in a few different countries (Belgium, Scotland, Germany, Serbia, and now Slovenia). I’ve also travelled quite a bit, which I am extremely grateful for.
I studied Geography and Anthropology but started my professional life in the Arts and Film industries. After a few years, I moved to the Tech industry where I worked in Marketing and Product for about 7 years.
Then I quit due to burnout.
I came to the realisation that my professional life was not in accordance with who I was and what I aspired to do.
Over the past several months, I’ve been indulging my curiosity in learning new things: I started a vegetable garden; I read a lot; I learned to make bread and tried my hand at fermentation.
And in the back of my mind, I was imagining what Seeking Wisdom could be. So, back in September, I set out on this new adventure and, so far, it has been a very rewarding experience. Now I look forward to meeting open-minded and generous people.
