Dear Future Job

Dear future job,   I can choose to continue to scroll through job ads without finding any position that fits my profile. OR I can choose to throw myself out there, head first, making myself visible, so that the one and only, spot-on job (you) finally can find me. Working together, successfully ever after. If you would examine my brain you would most probably think I am a chaotic mess. However, that is far from the truth; I am organized, altruistic, driven and creative (thanks to my disorganized brain). Although my mind is constantly chatting – you know, I am one of those who think before they speak – I always seem to somehow separate and remove all the clutter from the important information, the things that make sense, make us proceed. I love writing. Writing is my home. Whenever I feel sad, in love, anxious, eager to inspire or excited I return home. Please, prepare yourself – being with me involves writing. Another thing that I am deeply passionate about is people. We are …

Friday Feeling – Don’t ever give up

”Don’t hide your magic.”   Do yourself a favour. Don’t ever hide your magic. Your spark. Even though you might shine too bright for some, you will never shine too bright for this world. The world needs you. You.  Don’t give up on something you really want. Most likely there will be days when everything feels like a constant battle, you’re feeling stuck, and nothing seems to unfold the way you want it to unfold. During times like these patience is key. Giving up is not an option. Yes there will be struggles, it’s part of life. However, every so often set-backs, road bumps, might change your direction. Guide you towards a new path, one that you never thought of before. New opportunities usually enter when you let go of controlling all aspects of your life.   ”keep going. my darling, trust me when I say your time will come.” – Linda   It’s good to have a plan, and clear visions towards where you’re heading. Nevertheless, you should always walk through life with an …

Are you afraid?

I know I am. ”Fear does not stop death, it stops life.”   Magic doesn’t happen if you give up. You might want to. Give up. But keep in mind, the universe always falls in love with a stubborn soul. I once read that ”our fears reveal what we care about the most”. I believe there’s truth in that statement. The older I’ve become I’ve noticed that I’ve become more and more afraid. How come? That’s a question I don’t really have an answer to. It’s something that has creeped up on me slowly, but surely. And it’s like I’ve become aware of it all of a sudden. You took me by surprise, you nasty piece of sh*t feeling.   What should you do then, when you finally realize that fear has taken over?   Fear is not a bad thing, many times it actually helps us stay away from danger. However, fear becomes dangerous when it stops you from living the life you dream of. ”Fear is connected to the ego and the ego …

Believe, and you will receive

”I’m not a teacher, babe, but I can teach you something Not a preacher, but We can pray if you wanna Ain’t a doctor, but I can make you feel better But I’m great at writing physical love letters…” – Beyonce I’ve been thinking about goals a lot lately, and how I always seem to struggle with getting them down on paper or making them more clear. (Read this post about 101 lifetime goals where I talk about the difference between goals and dreams.) I’m starting to realise why I have such a problem with thinking about my goals; It has a lot to do with my insecurities – I actually thought that I can’t achieve them. I didn’t believe I could. I didn’t even think I was worthy or that I would have enough experience or skills. But, of course I can! Of course I’ve all the experience I need! I am exactly where I need to be right now. And I’m worthy. We all are worthy of achieving our biggest dreams and goals. If you’ve found yourself …

Motivational Mantras

  She possesses a peaceful confidence that screams power. She is humble, but fierce. She is stable, with a rebellious soul. She is loving, but far from naive. She chooses her struggles wisely, cause she always knew what she wanted. Dangerously intelligent she’s prepared to fight. And when that time comes;fight she does.   I haven’t yet written down any actual goals for 2018. At least not any clear and precise ones. But what I’ve done is that I’ve written down how I want to feel 2018. I think that is as important as setting goals; If you know how you want to feel when you travel through life the things you want, need and long for the most will come to you more effortlessly. Why do you want to achieve certain things? Why are they important to you? Is it just because you want to impress others, or do you want to impress yourself, improve yourself? I’ve written down 9 life mantras that I will strive to live by this year. I’ve already been …

101 Lifetime Goals

”Goals have a finish line. Dreams never have to end.”   Don’t confuse your dreams with goals. Dreams are imaginary, goals produce tangible results. Goals usually have a deadline, either in the near future or several years from now. Dreams are simply dreams, if they aren’t turned into goals. Achieving a goal requires action, and you won’t reach them over night. They usually require hard work, focus and determination. However, if you want them bad enough you won’t give up on them. You shouldn’t give up on your dreams either, but remember that dreaming doesn’t take you anywhere. It’s important to have both short-term and long-term goals since it brings joy, purpose and meaning into your life. Begin by writing your goals down; it’s an excellent way to make them more specific, more tangible. You can introduce weekly goals, monthly goals, one year goals, five year goals etcetera. Write a list with several goals you’d like to achieve. Since some goals will take longer to achieve than others it’s good to include short-term goals that are somewhat …

99 things for health

”Take care of your mind and body. It’s the only place you have to live.”   You can’t have too many lists. Here’s my list of 99 things for health. Health is not only about looking a certain way – health is about feeling alive, having a positive attitude towards life and being confident in your own skin, as well as being both mentally & physically strong. Health is your greatest wealth.  The importance of sleep. Aim for 6-8 hours sleep/night (And put away the phone 1 hour before bedtime). Staying active throughout the day. While it’s important to exercise regularly it’s as important to be active in your everyday life. Take the stairs. Always take the stairs. If you haven’t broken your foot, then take the elevator. Educate yourself. Try to learn something new everyday. Prioritise the greens, the veggies, the colourful stuff (I did not mean candy when I wrote that). Smile to strangers. They might think you’re crazy, but hey! Then smile even bigger. Drink plenty of water. Water is life. Water is fundamental to …
