Flow with the current

”Don’t fight life – live it.” Life is continuously changing; it’s a series of natural and spontaneous changes. If you’re looking for permanent peace and happiness learn to be comfortable with everything that’s unfolding; circumstances taking place, feelings and emotions running through your body, people dancing in and out of your life. It’s the nature of life. It’s the nature of your being. The more I think about it; enjoying every aspect of life, and all that it’s presenting us with, is the only rational thing to do. Or as Michael A. Singer puts it: ”You’re sitting on a planet spinning around in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Go ahead, take a look at reality. You’re are floating in empty space in a universe that goes on forever. If you have to be here, at least be happy and enjoy the experience. You’re going to die anyway. Things are going to happen anyway. Why shouldn’t you be happy? You gain nothing by being bothered by life’s events. It doesn’t change the world; you just suffer. …

Inner happiness

”Use the hours with softness.” Don’t try to change the past, it’s impossible. The only way to change the future is by making the most of the present. Being a control freak by nature I’ve decided to work on being more patient with myself, in order to find a sense of calmness within; personal features that I strongly believe are highly beneficial to the body, mind & soul.  But how is it even possible to stay patient and calm in a world that’s constantly changing? To stay satisfied with what is, when the mind is obsessed with living in the past or worrying about the future? It’s like it does anything just to escape the now. ”I don’t want to be here, I need to get to there.” ”When I find that perfect partner, that perfect job, earn loads of money and become successful, then I’ll be happy.” ”I’m not satisfied with where I am, I need to have more, be more; then my life will be fulfilled.” The ego will never be fulfilled; no matter …

A peaceful mind

”The joy is one with who you are, and cannot come to you. It arises from deep within.”   Growth is painful, change is painful, but there is nothing as painful as staying stuck where we don’t belong. Life is meant to be experienced; the highs, the lows, the good and the bad. Everything has its purpose, and your purpose should be to fully embrace who you are. All aspects of who you are. Your flaws, your strengths. Your beauty. There’s a reason why you’re here, darling human.  I guess the problem is that sometimes we’re just trying too hard. We’re trying to control every part of our life; planning for the future, minute by minute. Trying to predict the future, worrying about the future. But the fact is, the future is constantly changing, and all we can impact is the present moment. The future is being created while you’re fully present in this moment. And the next, and the next, and the next. Wherever you are, be there. You don’t have to have all of your …

2019 intentions

”Everything you need, seek and long for is already within.” I feel it’s a beginning of a new cycle of life. Not only because it’s a new year, but I can feel fresh faced optimism floating in the air. Do you sense it as well? I’m a firm believer in writing my intentions, goals and dreams down, preferably on a piece of paper. I guess I am more of a dreamer/planner than a doer. However, my intentions for 2019 is all about taking action and believing in myself and my abilities. You can choose to write daily, weekly, monthly and/or yearly intentions. I prefer to write my intentions in the beginning of every month, as well as set one daily intention that helps guiding me throughout the day. Setting intentions not only makes it easier to stay focused, but it helps to keep the motivation up as well as staying more grounded and closer to one’s core self. Below you’ll find some of my intentions for the year ahead. I’m pretty sure I’ll come up …

50 facts about me

”Out of stillness grows mastery. There’s no place like within.”   I like spending time by myself (I’m an INFJ personality type). I feel more at ease in one-on-one settings than in large groups. I love dark chocolate. I’ve done yoga almost every day for about a year (some days 10 minutes other days 40 minutes). I’m very sensitive to other peoples’ energies. I’m a very sensitive person ( although I might look or act cold on the outside). I believe all people are born with a kind heart (however, what we let society, our ego or other people do to us is up to us..) Having knowledge is powerful, nevertheless, without wisdom it’s all wasted.  I want to have two dogs; preferably a husky and a golden retriver. My new found hobby painting is the best thing that happened to me this past year. Rhytmic gymnastics is my all time favorite sport; it was my biggest passion when I was between 10-18 years old. I feel a enormous drive to help people in some …

Trusting yourself

”Darling, there’s sunshine and stardust pouring out of your veins.” A key ingredient in this beautiful, yet unpredictable life is trusting yourself. As soon as you begin to trust yourself you’ll learn how to dance through life, cultivating courage, self-worth and compassion. Wherever you go begin to plant all these wonderful things that you are. When you start to put complete trust in yourself you’ll automatically become more confident in your own skin. What determines your worth? Think about it for a minute. Is it your looks? The amount of friends you have? Your income? Your job title? Where you were born? Your skin colour? Or do you depend on other people to make you feel valuable? Question your belief systems. Why do you have them, and where do they steam from? Be clear and completely honest with yourself when answering these questions. Writing your thoughts down might make it easier to understand yourself as you read your words out loud. The goal is to better your self, and to become more self-aware. Own who you …

Never be afraid of change

”Choose to shine even after all the storms you’ve been through.”   Change can be hard, intimidating and messy. Painful even. However, in order to grow as humans we’ve to change. We’ve to challenge ourselves, and never be afraid of trying new things. Stay open minded – the world is limitless. Stay curious -the world is filled with possibilities. Change is helping you to become the person you’re meant to become.  Rule number 1 – You are not here to make others understand you. You’re here to understand yourself. The more you get to know yourself, the more effortless your life will become. Aristotle once said: ”Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”  It’s usually through change that you’ll find your true, authentic self. Change can of course be painless, simple and smooth – especially if you’re the one in charge of the change. Then I believe it’s more about the internal change, in other words; If you want to change what’s going on around you, you’ve to change what’s going on within you. Still, there …

Dear September…

… your colorful and humble character awakens my soul. ”I can hear autumn laughing in the breeze.”   The leaves shine bright in warm golden light. Utterly mesmerized, while watching summer falling so artlessly in love with September, whispering final words of goodbyes. Be aware darling human, be aware, you’re shifting just like the softest, brittlest wind. Stay open, be alert, now is the perfect time for a rebirth. While I’ve always kept summer close to my heart, still and all I believe my soul breathes for fall.  September is for blissful mornings. Dark, quiet evenings. Golden opportunities from dusk till dawn. The bright warming sunlight caressing thirsty hearts. Awaken dear human, awaken your soul; September is for seeking knowledge, the truth resting deep within. Savor every breath of this moment, while summer so effortlessly turns into fall. It’s pure beauty, pure art. Nature soothes us with her colorful heart. Wherever we go, whenever we fall, Mother Nature’s passionate spirit embraces us all. Make a choice, take the leap, and don’t you dare to forget your …

How to be more productive

”Stay focused and get sh*t done.”   How to get things done when you’re completely overwhelmed? Fall is here and it’s time to get back to work and/or school. Have you ever told yourself that; ”There isn’t enough time in one day?” The truth is; there is more than enough time, it’s how you choose to spend your time that matters. It’s for example easy to lose focus if you’re used to checking your phone every five minutes. If you feel like there isn’t enough time, start to observe what you’re doing with your time. How can you become more effective? Structure your days, focus on what you can change and take action – in order to stay ahead of the game. Below you’ll find 5 hacks that will make your days more productive; Be proactive. This advice is from the book ”7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. Focus on the things you can change, instead of worrying about the things on which you have no control. And do it proactively, before …

Not worthy of comparison

”dear self, you’re exactly who you need to be right now.”   August 27, 2018 Day 240 of 365 Your life is beautiful. Unfiltered, raw and beautiful. Dear human, take time to appreciate every chance you get to breathe in the mysteries of life. The dark, deep mysteries of nature. Embrace the softness in the air, the fresh ocean breeze, the steep mountain tops. Darling, embrace yourself. Darling, even the Moon shines its brightest during darkness. The path you’ve been travelling, to get to where you are right now, is yours. Your life is not comparable to anyone else’s, just as your Self can’t be compared to any other human being’s Self. Instead, focus on honoring your uniqueness. Don’t let fear stop you from living life to its fullest. Don’t let fear stop you from being you. ”Comparison is the death of creativity. The death of your Self.” It’s rather common to obsess about other people’s lives, other people’s success stories, that you completely forget about your own possibilities to succeed. Within seconds you can …
