I used to do regular “summaries” of the months as they passed and realised I havent done that for quite some time. Doing a summary of the winter therefore seemed more fitting, as it is finally over, and it has been a bit of a wild one I have to say.

 


 GOING THROUGH A BREAK-UP

The absolute worst and toughest part this winter was going through a break-up, especially when you choose to break-up with a person you actually still want to be together with. But our goals and needs became to different and to difficult for us o to please. Life is a strange puzzle, and sometimes you have to accept that the pieces you so desperately want to fit is not fitting, even though it might look like they do. Maybe we just need some time apart, who knows.

MOUNTAINS & SKIING

One really great thing about this winter is that I´ve been doing more skiing than I ever can remember, which have been a great escape. I love being in nature, especially the mountains.

LIVING WITH MY BESTFRIEND FRIDA

A puzzle that worked out really well, was that I was so lucky to move into my friend Frida´s apartment. This have been so good for me. I love spending time with her, and we just have so much crazy fun together and really understand each other, with good and bad.

GOING AFTER ONE OF MY DREAMS

This winter I finally made the decision to follow one of many dreams, with many more to follow when this one is achieved. Deciding to take my yoga to the next level, I´m flying to Indonesia in two weeks, completing the first level of becoming a certified yoga instructor. Living in a word where it is to easy to just do what is expected of you, and follow the main stream, I cant explain how good it feels to choose a different way of living.

 

WE ONLY HAVE THIS ONE LIFE THAT WE KNOW OFF, SO MAKE IT YOURS. MAKE YOUR DREAMS THE REALITY OF YOUR EXISTANCE.

One thing that I´ve really come to appreciate and not take for granted the last six months, is not to be ashamed of failure. Most people live their life afraid of failing, so therefore they do not dare taking the chances where they dont have a clear view of the outcome. We are so scared of failing, that we miss out on great opportunities that could lead us on a path to higher grounds, even if dont reach the peak of success we will learn from it till the next time we have an opportunity.

……..

Before I finally managed to make the decision that I wanted to become a certified yoga teacher, I was only thinking about all the postures I could not manage and how I was failing at not being good enough. I have never been naturally flexible, I have never been really strong or good at anatomy but I do LOVE yoga and all the great benefits of it. Thankfully I changed my mindset around, I simply allow myself to fail, not be good enough. Because I will try again and again, until I will manage to do it. I will work hard for it, because if i dont dare to fail I will never know how far I can reach.


 

My friend Frida and I have been practising different “difficult” yoga postures, Feathered Peacock being the most difficult one, we still are not able to do it properly, but we are not giving up on it. When we finally manage to do it perfectly, we will find a new and more difficult one to practise.

A new week has just begun, maybe you have a heavy start to it, or maybe you are easing into it like I´m lucky enough to do. I´ve come to really enjoy Mondays, cause I most of the time start work around 1pm, so I have really fresh productive Monday mornings, with tea in bed, yoga, a little bit of house organisation and anything else that I should have done before heading to work.

I´m starting the day off with both music and podcast and this is my top 4 songs right now…


ODESZA – Kusangi

 

MOGLI – Wanderer

When my heart shuts down I don’t speak Cause behind the muffled beating I am weak The earth is ripped with cracks Beneath my feet One word more they become crater’s

Oh the wind in my hair It sings my song To be a Wanderer and to go home Oh the wind in my hair It sings my song To be a Wanderer To be a Wanderer and to go home

 

STU LARSEN – Far away from here

LORD HURON – The night we met


Hope your Monday turn out to be a great one, if not try making it great. Start with positive vibes & a positive mind, it will get you a long way.

I had a really nice birthday celebration last night, a few friends yummy food & wine in a small low key bar/restaurant. It was just how I like it. A few days a go I was in need of some inspiration and motivation, often feeling a bit different than the norm I do need to boost my system with alternative thinking from likeminded people. Searching for some input I came a cross two documentary´s on Netflix, both really hit me they way I had hoped, sparking my system.


EXPEDITION HAPPINESS

A travel documentary about a young couple finding their path, inspiration and searching for a higher meaning in life, while travelling in a selfmade living bus.

Nature. Loneliness. Mindfulness. Culture. Togetherness. Happiness.

 


THE LAST SHAMAN

Following a extremely depressed person, who is on the verge of killing himself. Travelling alone to Peru, seeking up ancient wisdom and medicine healers to to try make one last effort to cure his depression. It is a really honest, raw and inspiring story.

Depressing. Raw. Honest. Eye-opening. Alternative.

Happy Friday to everyone,  all though most of us love weekends, do not forget to enjoy everyday. Life is to short to just live for the weekends. With that said, I do hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead? Either if you have to work, are going away, are already on holiday or maybe even returning from holiday?

ENJOY

I´m on the bus home, to have family time and birthday celebrations. My mum´s birthday was yesterday, and my birthday is Thursday next week, so we are having a small family gathering on Saturday. I´m not to fussed about celebrating my birthday to be honest, especially 26, dont really need a big party for that.  However I do like having some quality time with the family, eating good food and playing cards.

We are making a yummy baked veggie risotto, with bruschetta and other delicious sides and the best part, carrot cake for dessert. I personally are not a big cake eater, but I do love carrot cakes, so making this vegan version for the first time, I´m pretty exited about the result.

Sharing coffees and wine with  likeminded souls is always good remedy for anything. Taking photos, stalking insanely handsome surfers on Instagram, being single together. Seeing the world a little differently than most & choosing paths out of the ordinary.  Following our hearts instead of following the “smart choices”, which society expects of us.

 

Why be ordinary when you can go for extraordinary?

I´m pretty sure I´ve become really bad at dealing with winters, but one thing I do LOVE about real winters are going into the mountains, driving through the most amazing landscape. It is fairy-tale like, magical and mysterious. This weekend a group of my friends and I spent our time drinking to many glasses of wine, watching the snow playing up all crazy around us, doing a very short cross country trip, just to feel the cold wind on or cheeks. Followed by more wine, burning wood and slow-mood at my friends cabin.

Hi lovelies, I´m back in Oslo, working for a few days after a few nice days spent with family. I love being home enjoy my childhood home and just doing nothing really. Christmas is not a holiday I´m very found off, but I do like being together, having days off and the christmas lights are pretty nice now during dark days. I just wanted to give a quick summary of a few of my favourite gifts, as I did receive a few, thankfully almost just things I needed or actually did really want.

As I´m trying to lead a more non materialistic lifestyle, I do still think it is ok to want things to a certain extent.  All though I personally believe most things will not make you much happier.

A FEW FAVOURITES

I´m home this weekend, celebrating my grandpas birthday, I got yesterday off and working late Monday, so I got a nice long weekend at home, which is great. Friday I did yoga at my mums work  as they have their own personal gym at the office, then having dinner at my grandpas place. Today we are having dinner out, good to spend some quality time together and with my gorgeous cat Mango.

The last week has been pretty cold, windy and it has been snowing as well, so I´ve joined the “parkas community”. I always prefer wearing nice coats and jackets, but sometimes you just have to give in for keeping warm and comfortable.  I had a good winter parkas from Fjellreven, but I were wanting something even bigger and longer. I found the perfect one from a Scandinavian brand called Samsøe Samsøe, no leather details and no down.

PERFECT

I sold my old jacket, and invested in a new one, as I would not see the point in having two almost identical jackets for the same use, so someone esle can be happy with my old jacket is perfect.
