The meaning of life – your fountain of youth πŸŒ±

What are you most passionate about in life? That is your calling. Dive into it, this is your life and if you want to feel good you have to follow your bliss.

What gives you the greatest satisfaction and joy in life? Do that as much as you possibly can. That is how you enjoy life.

What makes you smile with joy the second you start thinking about it? That is your meaning of life, your fountain of youth.

You woke up this morning, you get another chance to enjoy being a live – make the best out of this day πŸŒΉ

Now as you enter a new week, breathe in new energy, new zest for life and new strength. Every new day is a gift. You woke up this morning, you get another chance to enjoy being alive. Your time is the most valuable gift, follow your bliss and do things that make your heart sing.

Your life is not about the big events you are waiting for, your life is not all about your teenage years – your life is NOW, right here and right now in this very moment. Make the best of where ever you are, try to enjoy what ever it is you have to do today. You cannot know how many years, or months, or weeks, or days or even hours you have left – that is why each moment is a gift. πŸ™ Enjoy your day, one moment at a time.

How you feel is your choice, and it will affect everything else β€οΈπŸ¦‹πŸ™

A lot of people will say they love and adore you, but how they feel about you is not because of you – it is because of their own perspective.

Never let how they feel about you be the reason why you like or dislike yourself, let them feel as they choose to while you work on loving yourself and everyone else unconditionally. Choose to be one who loves and adores, one who sees the best in others and all things. How you feel is your choice, and it will affect everything else. β€οΈπŸ¦‹πŸ™

Are you happy? Are you satisfied? – Then you are doing it right πŸ’

There are so many people around you that think they know how you should live, what you should enjoy doing and how you should spend your time. But they are all wrong. No one except you can know what is right or wrong for you at any given moment. You have to listen to your own guidance. It doesn’t matter if it is big decisions such as if you should move to another country, if you should have children or if it is small decisions such as how you should spend this evening – the peanut gallery (your family, your friends, society, the world…) might have many different beliefs about what is right or wrong to choose and they might have very detailed expectations of you – but they could not possibly know what is best for you. Only you can know that, in your heart. Follow what feels like relief to you, listen to what calls you and choose what makes you happy. πŸ™

A little bit of hope can clear even the darkest of hearts πŸ’ž

The purest of hearts were once filled with such darkness there was not even a trace of light to be found anywhere.

But, a little bit of hope can clear even the darkest of hearts. It is never too late for a new beginning, now is all you ever have and all you ever need – now is when you can change how you feel and that will change everything.

How much you enjoy your life is up to you – life wants to be insanely good to you πŸ’ž

Never cease to look at everything in life with the curious eyes of a little baby. There is so much kindness, love, joy and fun in the world – everywhere – and you will begin to experience it fully once you look at the world through loving eyes.

The beauty is in the eye of the beholder just as love, joy, passion, desire – and every other positive emotion as well – is an inside job. It is a matter of perception and attitude.

How much you enjoy your life – no matter the circumstances – is 100% up to you, and life wants to be insanely good to you. πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ’ž

The one song that has given me comfort for over 25 years πŸ™πŸŒΉ

That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
Love
Devotion
Feeling
Emotion
(…)
Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny.
Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance
To return to innocence.
That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
Don’t care what people say
Follow just your own way
Follow just your own way
Don’t give up, don’t give up
To return, to return to innocence.
If you want then laugh
If you must then cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny.

🌼🌼🌼 Yes, you can feel good even when you have seen the dark sides of life πŸŒΌπŸŒΌπŸŒΌ

Not every sky will be blue and not every day is springtime. So on the spiritual path a person learns to find this kind of happiness without needing nice things to happen on the outside. Rather, you find happiness by being who you really are. This isn’t mystical. Young children are happy being who they are. The trick is to regain such a state when you are grown and have seen the light and dark sides of life.”

Deepak Chopra

How you feel is in your hands, no matter what you have been through. It doesn’t take much skill to just look around and feel in response to what you see. That is just sloppy creating because you give all your power away. If you see something unwanted, you feel bad and complain. If you see something wanted, you feel good and appreciate. That is very disempowering because then you are dependant on what happens around you.

True freedom, strenght and empowerment comes when you choose to feel good, regardless. And you practice feeling better even though you have been through unwanted things. How you feel truly is a choice, a choice YOU make in each moment. How do you want to feel?

From raging insecurities to strong empowerment πŸŒΌ

“(…) 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. πŸ™

A relaxing evening with my best friend πŸŒΉ

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 NΓ€ssjΓΆ 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. 😊 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. πŸ™
