Being easily pleased

”We could never have guessed, we were already blessed where we are…” – James Taylor Beauty is found in the ordinary. As the winter sun caresses my frozen cheeks my fears slowly melt away, like snowflakes on a sunny April day. Reading books that open up my heart, providing me with valuable knowledge. Being able to constantly challenge the mind. Making a beautiful home cooked meal. Putting pen to paper, exploring the creative mind. Still, I know you’re with her. It’s the little things, without them there would be no essence to everyday life. Without them there would be no Me. There would be no Us.  One of the three books I’m reading at the moment is a book written by Mark Nepo ”The Book of Awakening – Having the Life You want by Being Present to the Life You Have.” In one of the chapters Nepo writes that; ”One key to knowing joy is being easily pleased.” I find this to be very true. However, this doesn’t mean that you should stop striving for …

Dear June…

Originally posted on Nurturing Thyself:
…you’re my favourite month. ”You’ll turn out ordinary if you’re not careful.” June is for waking up early. For staying up late. The Midnight Sun screaming for attention. June is for restless nights. June is for magic. Young and green. June is for miracles. For feeling alive. June is for picnics and counting stars. June is for beauty in its purest form. June is a wild child, a summer child. Growing into the adolescence of autumn. June is for believing everything is possible.  June is a month when I feel most alive. I blame the sunlight, the long days and short nights. I sleep a lot during winter, but could stay up whole June. The nature – pure, fresh and clean. June might as well be cold and rainy, but it’s still June. It’s still magic. My deepest desire is to spend every waking moment underneath the Sun. Close to the Sea. Close to the Heart. ”To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong” ? This June…

Small changes to healthier eating habits

”The food you eat can be either the safest & most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”   Big changes don’t happen overnight. They take time and effort. However, small changes, each and every day, can make a big difference since they eventually will have a big impact in your life. As your small changes become habit, you can continue to add even more healthy choices. The desire to change can happen overnight, though it can be overwhelming to tackle everything all at once. ”Change is hardest in the beginning, messiest in the middle, and gorgeous at the end.” – Robin Sharma  It’s the consistent process that makes the difference. Consistency is key to successful results. Although health shouldn’t be regarded as something that has an end. Healthy living is an ongoing process, it’s a way of living. Firstly, change the way you’re thinking – Instead of saying ”stop doing” say ”start doing”. It’s a more positive way of thinking. The focus should be on what you’re gaining instead of what …

Early mornings

I love early mornings. The sunrise. A healthy breakfast. Sleeping in. The smell of coffee. Warm Summer nights. Cuddles. I love Spring. Loud music in my ears. Running. Exploring a new city. The taste of coffee. People watching. Fresh flowers. The sunset. I love creating a new recipe. Writing. Lemon water. Taking photographs. The sound of the ocean. Puppies. Coconut ice cream. Working out. I love planning. Wearing a dress. My family. Acai bowls with loads of toppings. Making him laugh. Midnight sun. Ambitious people. I love his scent. Nature. The feeling of being free. Dancing. The smell of the forrest. Snowflakes pouring down. Capturing a moment. Taking a hot bath. I love early mornings.
