6 years ago I made an exciting decision ๐Ÿฅณ

On the 18th of June 2013 I left my position as a language teacher and started as a special education teacher. Best job ever! ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒนStill the same work place though, I have worked at the same school 12 years now and it is the best work place ever. 6 years as a language teacher and 6 years as a special education teacher. ๐Ÿ™

From raging insecurities to strong empowerment ๐ŸŒผ

“(…) Can you hear the whispers all across the room?
You feel her eyes all over you like cheap perfume
You’re beautiful, but misunderstood
So why you tryna be just like the neighborhood?
I can see it, I know what you’re feelin’
So let me tell you ’bout my little secret
I’m a little crazy underneath this
Underneath this
Do you ever feel like a misfit?
Everything inside you is dark and twisted
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I)
Do you ever feel like an outcast?
You don’t have to fit into the format
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I-I-I-I-I) (…) “

Ava Max,” So am I”

No matter what you look like, what body type you have or what clothes you have – people will look at you and some will judge you. There will always be those who love the way you look and those who completely disapprove of everything that you are. Let them think as they choose to.

The beautiful part about life is when you finally give up trying to please everyone else, when you finally shake loose from caring about their disapproval or approval. There is so much freedom and empowerment to be felt when you start giving yourself the love and approval you previously tried to get from other people and external things.

It is a process. It takes time. I began working on this 12 years ago, when I was 24. I have come such a long way, I went from having no self esteem what so ever, from feeling like a helpless victim and feeling I had to please everyone around me in order to deserve to be liked a little – I went from all that to really liking myself, inside and outside no matter what other people think of me. I began to appreciate life, to appreciate all experiences – especially the bad ones because they helped inspire me to now become stronger.

I would not even be the happy, confident and empowered woman I am today without every single bad thing that ever happened to me. So I am grateful, for all of it. My entire way of viewing life is 100% different from how I viewed life 12 years ago. If I can change all these limiting insecurities, anyone can.

And no, the external things didn’t change before I felt better. I still look exactly the same way as I did before, I have the same job, the same relationship, I have still gone through all those awful things in my life that left me on the brink of despair – and I have since then gone through even more negative experiences in all aspects of my life. And yet here I am, happier and stronger than ever. Loving life, loving my body and feeling appreciation for every step along my way. Feeling appreciation for every rascal that ever hurt me because I am who I am today because of it all. It is an endless journey that I intend to enjoy. ๐Ÿ™

It is the life and the zest in the years that matters

Don’t feel stupid if you don’t like what everyone else pretends to love“.

Emma Watson

This is the exciting and satisfying part of life – find out what calls you and follow your unique bliss.

You don’t have to follow what society or your loved ones expect of you – this is YOUR life, not theirs. You only have a couple of years on this planet so why not make the absolute best of those years!? Enjoy your life in the most delicious ways you can think of.

It is the life and zest in the years that matter, not the amount of years in your life! ๐Ÿ™

๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผYes, I like my body ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ

Yes, I like my body. I am proud that my body has carried and given birth to my two little babies. I am proud that it kept being there for me even though I hated it for several decades. I am proud that it could go through so much pain and so much suffering and still be resilient, healthy, fit, toned and strong. ๐Ÿ™

Yes, I like my body and I will keep enjoying being in my body for as long as I shall live. No matter what happens, my light cannot be dimmed anymore. This is who I am, and I like it. ๐Ÿ™

A really nice Sunday โ˜€๏ธ

Today has been so wonderful. It was really sunny and warm during the morning so we decided to jump into the pool.

We spent a lot of the morning outside playing in the playground right next to were we live. I love how beautiful nature has become, so many flowers and colors everywhere.

I hope you have had a wonderful day as well. ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน

A relaxing evening with my best friend ๐ŸŒน

Last night was really nice. My friend came home to us and we went for a very long walk, rather late. It was very warm outside and there were lots of people every where who were celebrating the evening. There had been a huge car meet up in Nรคssjรถ and lots of beautiful cars were cruising along the city streets. A perfect evening.

It was so nice, I didn’t even stop to take a picture because I was enjoying it so much. ๐Ÿ˜Š However, when we were on our way home I took a picture of these beautiful flowers that smelled divine.

I feel blessed for having such a kind and caring friend like I do. I love that I can always be myself and relax when I am around here. She has so much goodness within her and I always feel safe and secure when I am with her. We always have a good time no matter what we do. ๐Ÿ™

๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

The best part about my job is without a doubt, all my students. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

But I think 2013 was one of the funniest years though ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

I feel so satisfied with my life โค๏ธ

I feel really satisfied with my life. It is Friday today, and I feel good. This evening I went out to a cafรฉ with a friend. The weather was really nice so we sat outside. I was so hungry I ordered two meals (the one you see in the picture, and then one more exactly like that one ๐Ÿ˜‚) it was so delicious.

As we went back home it really dawned on me that I feel good – really good – about my life. I have so many things to be grateful for, I have experienced so many things already and I feel so good in my body. I am genuinly satisfied with my life. That feeling is so beautiful. ๐ŸŒน

Even more appreciation at work ๐ŸŒน

Today was the last day of school for my students. They were all so happy and sweet. One student came with these beautiful roses for me and many many students came up to me just to let me know how much they appreciated me. Talk about an amazing day ๐Ÿ˜Š.

This has been a wonderful Friday at work, I am so pleased and satisfied with this day.

As a beautiful bonus, I will meet my best friend tonight for a couple of hours. I really look forward to that too. ๐ŸŒน ๐ŸŒน ๐ŸŒน

  • I hope your day was really nice as well.
