A difficult life can make you stronger, happier and more in love with life 🙏

Do not pray for an easy life. Pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”

– Bruce Lee

What if everything you went through is of value? What if everything has unfolded just perfectly because it all contributed to you finding your inner strenght, unconditionally?

Because of all you have been through, you are free to have fun, laugh and love even if there is darkness all around you. When most people would bow their heads down in sorrow, when most people would be in such despair they are willing to give up – you stand firmly on your solid foundation with your heart beating peacefully and your mind full of hope. 🙏

Too kind, too trusting and too forgiving? No, these are really beautiful personality traits 🙏❤️

Yesterday something happened that made me stop and think. I did something really kind for someone else, I helped a person who was in need and he became so grateful and happy. But afterwards it dawned on me – I did not think about my own security when I helped him. What had happened if he had wanted to hurt me? I was alone with this person for almost 30 minutes and I had forgotten to bring my phone and only one other person knew where I was and who I was with.

Of course I thought this person was kind, respectful and friendly… But I really don’t know this person. For me it came naturally. He was in need, asked for my help because he had no one who could help him right then and there. My first thought was of course I want to help you, I want things to go well for you – and it turned out great. I helped him and he succeeded.

Is there such a thing as being too kind, too trusting and too forgiving? My co-worker thinks I am too kind. Maybe she is right but I really don’t want to change who I am. I believe in the goodness in people. I believe everyone just wants to feel good at their core. If people hurt others, drink, take drugs, argue, rape, beat or take any other negative actions – I believe they do so because they are only acting out their own inner pain, their own misaligned energy. We are all good people on the inside at our core and I will always believe people can change if they want to. I forgive with all my heart because I don’t judge, I try to see the broader picture.

My kind heart has brought me so far in life and given me so much joy. And yes, I have also been in situations that were awful and that almost broke me. But I don’t believe my kind heart is to blame, I believe my kind heart is the reason why I have overcome and found my way back to happiness again.

So yes, while I probably should be more careful around people I don’t know, I will continue to believe in the goodness in others and their intention while at the same time listening to my own guidance.

Everything starts with you, with how you feel 🦋


No assignment, no problem, no person and no situation is more important than your own wellbeing. If you don´t feel good, everything else will be negatively affected. If you feel good, everything else will be positively affected. It starts with you, with how you feel. How you feel affects everything. It even affects what kind of people you meet, how they behave but most importantly how you react. So, it is very valuable to care about how you feel – first. Make it your top priority to be kind, gentle and patient with yourself.
How can you make yourself feel a little bit better right now? Is there something you can do, say or think that can give you relief? If there is, then do it. If there isn´t, relax. You will feel better again eventually, just decide to be kinder to yourself and try to distract yourself as best you can.

See the world through your rose colored glasses 💖

Be like a happy little child, see the fun in everything and be as playful as you can be in each moment. See the beauty in other people, see the humor in every conversation, feel the freedom in each breath. Lighten up, don’t take life so seriously and decide to have a lot of fun every day.

Be the one who smiles and appreciates, the one who loves and enjoyes. For every problem – see solutions, for every obstacle – see beneficial opportunities and for every painful experience – see a valuable lesson to learn and grow from.

Life is supposed to be enjoyed, you are supposed to follow your bliss and have a lot of fun. See life as an exciting vacation and decide to make the best of where ever you might be.

Everything we do, say and think builds up who we are – who are you choosing to be?

You can be the happy person you desire to be, even in the midst of a negative situation when you are surrounded by negative people. How they feel and what is happening need not affect how you feel, unless you choose to make it a part of your story.

Everything we do, say and think builds up who we are and the story we take part of. Do you want to be happy or sad? A complainer or an appreciator? A judge or a forgiver? A negative person who sees flaws in everything, or a positive person who chooses to see the good in everyone and everything?

Don’t just mindlessly follow the paths in life that others choose, don’t just look around and react to everything you see – be selective! Let your guiding star be how you want to feel and choose actions, thoughts and words that supports the happy, confident, free, positive, loving, caring and forgiving person that you truly want to be.

Always believe in the goodness in people ❤

What you choose to see in others, you will attract more of. Everyone has wanted and unwanted aspects – what are you choosing to focus on in them?

We are all doing the best we can from where we are, given the beliefs, desires and emotional place we are in.

Don’t allow people to hurt you, but don’t judge people based on their behaviour or their mistakes either. Everyone can change, there is goodness in everyone.

“How the fuck can you have a positive attitude when someone hurts you so bad it brings you to your knees”?

Well, what choice do you really have if you want to feel better? Seriously, there are only two choices: 1) Choose to feel like a victim, powerless and sad. Complain about what happened, repeat what happened in your mind again and again and keep yourself stuck in the pain. 2) Choose to allow yourself the time you need to heal emotionally while you, at the same time, start working on how you view yourself and what happened to you.

There is always value with everything that happens – it just depends on how you look at it. Even if someone has done something really bad, you can still choose to let this experience and the behaviour inspire you to build your inner strenght.

If people were always kind to you, and if everyhting was always really pleasing to you, you would never need to challenge yourself to grow as a person. However, if people treat you in hurtful ways and if life gets really tough, you have an opportunity to grow as a person. You can become happier, more confident, more free and more in love with life because of all the hard times. Never let someone else and his behaviour be the reason you dim your own light! You have a choice! Allow yourself the time you need to heal emotionally and then begin to shine brighter because of the experience.

🌼 Caring about others begins with caring about yourself 🌼

Be extra kind to yourself today. No matter what you have to do or who you meet today, choose to go through your day with kindness and love in your heart.

How you feel affects everything, so when you begin your day by caring about how you feel and choosing to be kind to yourself – you will be of most value to everyone you meet as well. Caring about others begins with caring about yourself. 🌼

Deliberately think the best of everything and everyone

Wouldn’t it be fun to turn every complaint into a statement about what you now know you desire?

Wouldn’t it be nice to feel the rush of positive energy as you open up and look for reasons to like, enjoy and love?

Imagine the ease and joy you would feel as you choose to look at everything through loving eyes.

Enjoy an open and easy-going attitude today where you deliberately think the best of everything and everyone.
