Strenght is to believe in the possibilities when all you see is darkness 🙏

🌺 Strenght is to forgive someone who isn’t sorry

🌺 Strenght is to believe in the possibilities when all you see is darkness

🌺 Strenght is to believe it before you see it 🙏


Be who you want to be, those who matter won’t mind 🥰

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

– Bernard M. Baruch

Isn’t that a wonderful way to look at it? It can be so reliefgiving to realize that you don’t have to change who you are in order to be loved – you are already loved as you are.

If you feel you have to change your ways in order for them to like you – they are not your friends. A friend loves you as you are, where you are and how ever you feel. No changes are needed if it is true friendship.

A Saturday at the bath house 🌊

Today we decided to go to the bath house in Sävsjö. It is really nice there and my babies love to play in the water.

As we drove back home it started to rain, my favourite weather. 🌧️

We had a barbeque when we got home – a really nice Saturday. 🙏

  • How was your day?

When sadness fills your heart with darkness 🙏

Just go slower. It is ok. This too shall pass. Sooth yourself in any way you can. When sadness fills your heart with darkness, keep breathing and new life will clear the darkness away. 🙏

My Friday night in Jönköping

Last night went really well. It was incredibly cold so I actually had to wear my high-heeled black winter boots, but they looked really good on me with my grey pants and my black tight leather jacket.

I and my friend went to a restaurant that had a live band that sang and played really nice music. We talked a lot and it felt relaxing. Some other friends of mine where there too and they were so happy when they saw me. I think it has been over 7 years since I saw them.

There were a lot of people there and they were really happy and enjoying themselves. It was really nice but the best part was of course to drive back home again 🙃. I felt so relieved when I got back into my house where I feel safe, calm and secure. 🙏

Next time will probably feel even better and I will be able to relax some more. Baby steps.

🌺 The love and approval you crave 🌺

At the end of the day, it is not what others think of you that matters, but how you feel about yourself.

Don’t try to live up to the expectations of others, don’t worry about their disapproval or approval. Live your life in ways that please you, choose what gives you joy and satisfaction. No matter what happens, be there for yourself. Be your own best friend and give yourself the love and approval you crave.

A nice Friday 😊

This Friday at work has been really nice. I had lots of students who came to me asking for some extra help, even while I was having lessons with other classes – that is so nice! This happens every day. I feel so appreciated and valued by my students as well as by my bosses. One of my bosses even came to me after lunch, while I was helping some students, and asked how I was feeling. I truly have the best job ever.

In a few minutes I will go to Jönköping with a friend. We are going to eat dinner at a restaurant and just have a nice evening together. I really look forward to it.

  • I hope your day has been really nice as well and that you will have a great weekend.

Your failure and your mistakes can be the best things that ever happened to you 🌱

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness

Oprah Winfrey

What an awesome way to look at it. No matter what happens to you, everything has the potential of building your strenght and inspire you to grow and blossom into more of what you desire.

Thanks to all failure, all mistakes, all unwanted experiences and shattered dreams – you can become stronger, happier, more confident and more satisfied with your life – NOW – than if you had not gone through all of these things.

It is easy to feel good when your life is wonderful, but true strenght, true empowerment and true freedom is found when you face challenges and choose to let them be your steppingstone to greatness. 🌱

No advice, no solutions and no quick fixes – just listen🌹

It can be so valuable to have someone by your side who truly listens to you. Someone who honestly cares and wants to hear your story. It can make such a difference in your life.

No advice, no solutions, no right or wrong discussion – just someone who listens to you. That is a valuable friend.

I no longer fear those awful Friday feelings – I embrace my insecurities

It is Thursday evening and I am already feeling uneasy about tomorrow. It is so silly really, I know no one will hurt me again, yet I get so uneasy simply because it is a Friday. My co-workers all leave early so after 12 o’clock I am the only teacher left in our hallway, as always.

I don’t know how to get passed these uneasy Friday feelings, other than just accepting them. I feel uneasy, worried and anxious about beeing at work tomorrow – and that is ok. I will no longer try to distract myself or ignore my feelings, I will do as I did last Friday: I will embrace my insecurities. I choose to feel these uneasy emotions and go to work, anyway. I will have my lessons, I will help my students and I will get through the 6 hours I have to be in the school building.

Then I will go home and later I will meet a friend in Jönköping. It is going to be a nice Friday. 🙏

  • Do you have something that makes you uneasy? Can you think of a way to help yourself embrace how you feel and get through it?
