Its Tuesday night here in Oslo, I just came home from work, meditation meeting and lovely dinner with a girl from the meditation. We went to a an amazing vegan place here in Oslo, perfect last day before a month in paradise with in depth yoga practise.

…….

I´m packed and ready to go, trying to bring as little as possible. Most days will be filled up with yoga, meditation, learning, group work and self practise, so not much time for other activities. So packing has been really easy this time, the essentials are all the training gear; gym clothes, yoga mats, books, assessments and the rest of the booklets provided. Apart from that I´ve brought a couple of long lose dresses, beachwear and light tops and skirts for when we have som time off to explore.

HOLA FRIENDS,

 

I´m flying off to Bali in a few days, feeling a bit unconscious & nervous for this month that lay ahead. This week have been fully booked, mostly work. So I haven´t got much spare time. I´m almost ready for this, just need to pack my bags and make sure all the yoga articles are with me as they are the most important.

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.

The first half of the easter days were spent in our little cabin with my mum & brother, enjoying amazing weather with amazing mountain views. Sipping rose in front of a bon-fire and the sun warming your face, while the air is still frisk. We did two days of cross country skiing, which I´ve grown to enjoy more, as long as the weather is good. I simply take it as an exercise with the opportunity of taking beautiful photos along the way & taking in the amazing views. As I´m flying off to Indonesia soon, this was my last chance of skiing and being in the snowy mountains for this season, I really appreciated it as I´m not planning on spending much of the winter here next year.

Mountains and ocean are two simple joy´s I can not live without

Today we came home to Larvik, so I get to spend a few days by the ocean as well, so hoping the weather stays like this I cant complain, it is amazing.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE

  Oslo is sunny today, and the snow is melting, which is making me extremely happy. I´m hoping by the time I get back from Bali in May, it will be full bloom and summer vibes, until then let the spring blossom, we are in need of vitamin D and sipping rose in outside feeling the warmth. It is a nice feeling being able to wear less layers again.

No matter your age, occupation, living situation or surroundings it is never to late to make changes to your life. It is never to late to make new big decision that might change your course of life completely or take you in a slightly different direction. For a little while I´ve been feeling stuck and did not quite see a solution to it all. I was telling myself it will get better, you are just going through a difficult time, a new phase in life. Truth be told, it did not get better until I decided I needed to change the things that are not making me happy or taking me to the place I want to be. A little while a go I  did belive that the road I was on, were the right one for me, at least at this current time in life. The last six months have proven the opposite, it has been an extremely bumpy road, that has turned out to feel strange and unlikable. After debating for some time, I finally got myself to take action. If there is one thing that I have learnt from difficult times, it will not get better unless you take action and decide to make changes. We all need to go through different stages of our life´s and each decision we make leads us onto a new road. Sometimes it turnes out to be a great road, other times not so much. Learn to listen to your instincts, learn from the decisions  that turn out to be negative, because they are just as valuable as the positive decisions.

I know for sure this will not be the last time my life will change direction and it is not the last time I will feel like I´m on the wrong road. I´m taking this experience with me, choosing to see it in a positive way as it has thought me that my life is to valuable to waist on being stuck on a road that I dont find to like anymore.

This week have passed by really quick, it is already Thursday and I have a long weekend a head, with a busy agenda. I´m very focused on meditation, exercise and yoga philosophy these days. After thinking about extending my yoga knowledge for a very long time I have finally made a decision to actually do something about it. I have booked a yoga teacher training retreat in Bali, so I´n one month I´m on my way to a small island outside of Bali. There I will be staying for a month completing level 1 200 hours, becoming a qualified yoga teacher. I still cant believe I´m finally doing this, yoga is something I´ve practised for a long time, but it is not until lately that I have discovered the power of yoga and meditation. Going through a very though time the last six months, the yoga practise have really helped me find my path & pull me through.

 

I´m first of all doing the yoga teacher training for my own benefit, developing myself and connecting with my body on a deeper and extended level. Hopefully it will be a very powerful and eyeopening experience that I can take with me and share with others.

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´m turning 26 tomorrow, me personally do not think turning 26 is that much big of a deal, A year older, with a little more baggage, life experience slightly changed goals with a plan that this year will be a much better year than last year. This year becoming better than last year, does not really have anything to do with my age, but I guess I can start working on it even more from tomorrow on? Hoping 26 will be a more enjoyable and purposeful year, discovering more of who I am, what I want & places I wanna go see. I´m a restless soul, wanting to see and live to many places, help more people & animals and find my place in this fucked up world.

I´m still in search of the answer to life, I dont think 26 will be the year I find the answer, though I might get a step closer.

“In oneself lies the whole world
and if you know how to look and learn,
the door is there and the key in your hand.
Nobody on earth can give you either
the key or the door to open.
Except yourself”

Yesterday we had a little family gathering for my mothers birthday and for my birthday, which is next week. I was in charge of the food & dessert, I decided for baked vegetable risotto and carrot cake. I´m not a big cake person, but if there is one cake I do love, it is carrot cake. I found a vegan recipe on a Norwegian veggie food blog Vegetarbloggen.no

She is so inspiring when it comes to finding new ideas for food & desserts, with weekly updates. The carrot cake was an success, it tasted amazing. I followed the recipe, just changing the normal sugar with brown sugar, as I think it has a nicer flavour and a tiny bit healthier. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible,  but it is ok to make exceptions sometimes.
