Get Inspired by Jilly

jillyHello, tell us about yourself

“Haii I’m Jilly! I’m 24 years old and currently live in the Netherlands. I’m actually half Dutch and half Indonesian. Even though I was born and raised in Indonesia, I’m a Dutch citizen. As advised by my parents, I decided to take the opportunity to work and study in the Netherlands. It’s been 4 years now.

I am the kind of person who loves trying something new. And since I’m Indo, I’m blessed to see the difference between the two culture. I noticed that being different is unique and is a platform to try many cool things.”

What is self-care to you and when do you feel you need it the most?

“To me, self-care is how you can guide yourself into something positive, because when we bring something positive, it means we’ve done something good to ourselves. By positive I mean how we grow, build a character, and open to learn new things. You don’t have to spend money to take care of yourself, just start with yourself.

Hmm I don’t have specific time to practice self-care, because I think we have to take care of ourselves all the time. Regularly practicing self-care helps to stabilize my emotion.”

What is your favorite self-care ritual? 

“Away from the crowd, in a good way though. I think it’s best for me. I like that it gives me time to reflect on myself, relax, and recharge my energy. I’m the kind of person that after meeting people, I need to take my own space to recharge my energy.”

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote and want to share it with us?

“I’m convinced that the execution is more important than having an idea”
