“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Hi and welcome to my blog. My name is Rika. I am a passionate researcher and critical thinker – and a mother of two. I grew up in rural Germany with plenty of exposure to a traditional rural lifestyle and only now do I realise how much that has shaped me. Until recently I lived in Australia, without a backyard and without a strong eco-movement to rely on. This has sparked my urge to talk about my everyday ideas with friends and it is opening up a conversation I have not had so far. It’s very exciting!
The quote summing it all up to is the above. It incorporates many different aspects of this blog:
I can only change myself, not others.
I need time and space to reflect
I am in control
I won’t achieve anything unless I take action
In this blog, I’m sharing my ideas. And there are lots of them. Some buzzwords might have brought you here: sustainable living, zero waste, minimalism, whole foods. They all apply to this blog as well.
Why am I doing this, living a life of making my own stuff and talking about it? It’s simple, I enjoy it. I enjoy knowing what surrounds me, from food to the walls on my house. And I enjoy talking about it, getting new ideas from others, and spreading the word of new and different possibilities.
