To structure your writing, you need to combine the same ingredients that are necessary to construct your lifelong dreams. The right amount of fearlessness, discipline and a well organized timeline are needed – to name a few. All this while acknowledging that asking for help ain’t always a bad thing, and realizing when you’re being too stubborn either. And I say when, since being a goaldigger should never be wrongly translated or mistaken for an arrogant a**hole or whatever. Don’t you agree?

Welcome and thank you for visiting The Revitalized Chick Pea!

I started my lifelong writers’ journey at the age of 3. Actually, back then I was guided by my sister, since I couldn’t write by myself yet. But that’s a whole other story to read, which can be found by clicking here. But that fascination for words flowing on paper, poorly translated pronunciations and rhymes that are too classic to delay for writing it down later – it’s still present after all these years. Still present this very day.

Through The Revitalized Chick Pea I want to share everything I’ve learned so far, and all the wins and failures I will endure during my creative entrepreneur career in the future. The business owner’s lifestyle might not be a match with everyone’s way of living. But I guarantee you that, through visiting this easy to navigate worldwide writers platform often, your knowledge regarding blogging, SEO, branding, marketing, social media, storytelling and so much more will grow by the minute. Word for word.

I wanted to create a database with all the information I’ve collected through the years. Your go-to when in need of answers when experiencing the well known blank page curse. Or when you simply want to read a blogpost about lifeentrepreneurship or how to write and blog in the first place. Your story is yours and yours only, it makes you unique. Allow yourself to listen, to write down anything your heart, mind, body and soul are telling you. Continue writing or type it down, print it for later, share it with none or speak up.

Whatever you write and whatever you share, your words are more powerful than you’ll ever realize.

Everyone is an artist in his, her or their own existence, colouring their canvas with the art of kindness and passion for life. Find your voice, tell your story. No border should be a burden to disconnect shared interests.

M.B.

To read more about the origin of the chickpeas that can be found all over this website or perhaps you got interested in collaborating, hit portfolio below. I write many stories, including the one about the legumes. But maybe I can help you find the words to write your story and properly represent your brand, company, blog, business, or side hustle the right way.

Felicia Mok 

“I DON’T TRAVEL BECAUSE I WANT TO LEAVE HOME. I TRAVEL BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHY I’M STAYING.”

F.M.

With a love for traveling and life, Felicia followed her heart to Tokyo, following her ex-boyfriend. Stories that inspire can only be written by the ones who dare to take the jump every once in a while. And while she left her life in Amsterdam behind, she struggles to find her way around in Japan, and all that comes with living in the chaos that is Tokyo.

Jemaine Hogenbirk

“I’M SELFISH, IMPATIENT, AND A LITTLE INSECURE. I MAKE MISTAKES, I AM OUT OF CONTROL, AND AT TIMES HARD TO HANDLE. BUT IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE ME AT MY WORST, THEN YOU SURE AS HELL DON’T DESERVE ME AT MY BEST.”

MARILYN MONROE

Life happens, we all know that. That life has the ability to take several turns in life, those we never thought possible, that’s something Jemaine is familiar with. But then again, life happens right? With her second child growing perfectly in her belly, Jemaine shares through blogging the ups & downs that come with being a single parent and figuring out life through reading books and finding balance.

Priscilla Nooijen

“THE SCARIEST MOMENT IS ALWAYS JUST BEFORE YOU START.”

STEPHEN KING

Priscilla has a love for food, she contributed writing and sharing several recipes that you can find on my other site tcpc.com. Since this year (2020), she will also blog once a month about what’s the definition of having a hobby these days while enjoying life in her first bought apartment. At 27 years old, trying to find a balance between work, working out, seeing family and friends, and having fun while being alone, she decided to find something that can become her hobby and allows her to forget about all the madness that comes with living in Amsterdam. Want to know how she’s doing? Click here and find out what kind of blog post she wrote for TRCP this month.

Dayah Guy

“PERHAPS, THROUGH WRITING I MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND PEACE WITH MY OWN ENDLESS WANDERING. WHETHER IT BE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, OR EMOTIONAL. HOPEFULLY, ONE DAY, I CAN BECOME MY OWN HOME. ONE BLOG AT THE TIME.”

D.G.

Curious about her roots and wanting to find herself, Dayah decided to leave The Netherlands behind, and start a new life in Tel Aviv. Where life challenges you to ask yourself the bigger questions about everything that happens, especially while traveling and living alone, Dayah decided to write it all down and share her thoughts and answers through blogging. Find recognition within the words she dares to share by clicking here.
