Who is Linda?

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 body with healthy energy. I love soul food, and 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 NURTURING THYSELF. Welcome! I am a health-conscious, creative being, and founder of this homepage. I was born in Finland, and recently 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 and 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 knowledge wisdom. 

Furthermore, I have taken a course in Brand Management, and also received a diploma in personal nutrition and an advanced diploma in principles of nutrition from the online education provider Shaw Academy. 

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. (And worth mentioning; I have nothing against the books I have read in school, since they have taught me tremendously).

”… and i cannot say what i prefer the most, cause the depth of my being has a tendency to swallow all it is perceiving.”
-l.m.v

My wish is to inspire you to become more aware. 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.

I wish 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. 

Apart from being a writer and creative soul, I am deeply passionate about mindfulness, yoga and travelling, not to mention my new found hobby; painting.

NURTURING THYSELF is all about empowerment, self-awareness and mindfulness.

I aspire to inspire. And I do hope my writing will inspire you to a more holistic lifestyle. Most important; while you are busy trying to figure life out remember to experiment, have fun and choose a lifestyle that is most suitable for you.

Linda Maria Vestman
