I love the the taste of coffee in the morning. Breakfast in bed, and forgotten books. I love working out, to be strong. Feeding my body delicious, nutritious foods, providing my being with healthy energy. I love curious minds, capturing moments. The feeling of confidence. Poetry. I love sleepy, needy puppies. The power of words. To write. I love the early hours, a light pink sky. A gentle breeze. To stretch. I love spending time alone, quieting the mind. Self-growth. Art. I love travelling, exploring the world. Observing people. The ocean. Outer space. I love snowy mountains. Mother Nature. The animals.
I love being me. But most of all, I wish to connect with you. Humans.
I am so thrilled you found my site NURTURE THYSELF. Welcome! I am a health-conscious, creative being, and founder of this homepage. I was born in Finland, and have now moved back to my home country after living in Stockholm for ten years. As I have always been an admirer of school I have bachelor degrees in both Hospitality Management & Journalism. In addition I have taken courses within crisis psychology, clinical psychology, developmental psychology as well as neuropsychology at the University in Turku. I am always eager to learn new things, and educate myself. I strongly believe that one can’t have too much
But for the time being, I am rather satisfied not studying anything (solely trying to improve my Italian). My constant seeking for education got me thinking. Why am I seeking new knowledge all the time? What am I longing for? Outside validation? In other words, other people’s approval? A fancy resumé? It could be. Or perhaps it is my curiosity – the one that keeps me looking for answers to questions I can not yet respond to. As humans we are never fully completed. I think if we come to terms with that statement life will become less intimidating. Less heavy, and more light-hearted.
We do not have to have all the answers, as long as we have that intense yearning to know more about ourselves, others and life. In plain English – a deep desire to experience life.
And while I will always have a great appreciation for knowledge, I now understand that the wisdom I am looking for do not come from the books I have read in school, but from life. (Worth mentioning; I have nothing against the books I have read in school, since they have taught me tremendously). And I will most likely find myself in school again, sooner rather than later.
”… and i cannot say what i prefer the most, cause the depth of my being has a tendency to swallow all it is perceiving.”
My wish is to inspire you to believe in yourself. Believe and understand that you can achieve almost anything you set your mind to. You are an evolving human being, constantly travelling through phases, through seasons, just so you can rise in full bloom. You have a powerful inner voice; learn to listen to it. Embrace your intuition, your heart. That inner wisdom of yours is forceful; learn to use it to your advantage.
Apart from being a writer and creative soul, I am deeply passionate about mental health, mindfulness, the human brain, travelling and moving my body in various ways.
NURTURE THYSELF is all about empowerment, self-awareness and mindfulness.
