Time out

It’s with a heavy heart I have decided to take a time out. 

Due to unexpected circumstances I can’t continue the publicity. I will take a break from my blog, and my Instagram and Facebook will be private from today until further notice.

I hope that all my followers will be patient and understand this choice although I can’t share the reasons at this point.

Thank you all for your support and friendly comments and messages! 

Until next time

Turn it around

I’m the kind of person who believe in balance. If there’s too much good stuff happening I can’t relax, because I’m convinced something bad is coming. Until this day I have never been wrong.

Good comes with bad, and bad comes with good. That’s how I see it.

Whenever the bad happens, I get angry, frustrated, depressed and think my world is coming to an end. I’m not a nice person to be around in these moments. Not with the small stuff, obviously, but my life has a tendency to have big swings, big ups and downs. And when good comes, I always keep an eye out for the bad I know is coming.

But then I have my good habits. These “downs” comes shortly. For those who have been following me for a while knows how I worry and have solutions for absolutely any possible outcome of pretty much everything. I go into a shell of myself, I cry, I panick. It usually lasts for a few hours before my anger and stubbornness kicks in.

That’s when my real process start. That’s when I start thinking that this bad is a good thing. It’s weird in a way. I think I’ve had a different level of difficulties in life than most people, and to be honest: The bad has every single time turned my life to something better.

I start thinking about how this bad will affect my life. What can I do to change it? Maybe the bad can’t be changed. If it can’t, what can I do to solve it? Maybe a new direction? Maybe a huge change? What do I need to sacrifice to get where I want? What do I really want?

After approximately a day like this, I usually have a solution for every possible outcome.

Yesterday I got some very unexpected, and very bad news. The world was falling apart around me, and I don’t think my boyfriend enjoyed coming home to my lovely mood. I kept working my head around everything, slept bad and got up with a bad mood this morning. Then motivation kicked in and I started sorting out all the ideas in my head from the night before. And now? Well, I have a hundred solutions for every possible outcome. I’m ready to face it, and most of it is solved.

Point being: Bad isn’t necessarily bad. We need that balance to appreciate life and to make changes and try new things. The bad can always lead you down a road to something better. Or just on a different road towards the same destination. Either way, you can’t run from the bad.

My adventurous life

Since I left Norway almost two years ago, my life has been quite an adventure. Almost like a fairytale.

Don’t get me wrong, my life has never been boring. I always have a thousand things to do, and whenever I’m ready to close one chapter I always have ten new to choose from. I’m spontaneous and restless and need to be fully occupied.

Back to Tenerife! My life changed in almost every way. For the first time I was truly happy. And happiness does something to you. It gives you a different kind of energy, a different perspective on your life and surroundings and makes you appreciate every detail on a whole different level.

It’s not the things making you happy. We have a lovely apartment with everything we need, living in the best weather in the world with summer all year. I’m spoilt with fancy clothes and expensive stuff I don’t really need. I go to nice restaurants, five star hotels and travel more than ever. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want. But that’s not happiness. Happiness comes from within, and when you find that happiness, hold on to it, because that kind of happiness is what gives you everything else.

I’m incredibly lucky to have found this kind of happiness. This summer has been quite rough for me. It’s been so hard with long distance relationship and a lot of other things going on in my life. But I’ve been fighting my way through it all. I have found temporary motivation and joy the last few months, but right now everything is falling in to place.

You may think I’m just chilling on holiday, but if so you’re very wrong. I have spent the summer following my learning plan. I have made the exact progress I expected of myself. And I don’t stop there. Next week I’m starting a new bachelor degree. I have been working on a realistic plan for my future and now I’m just crazily excited to get started!

School is planned, holiday plans are in the making, and I’m working on so many secrets I can’t wait to share! If my life was adventurous these last couple of years, I can’t wait for the next. The future is mine, and I’m gonna make the very best of it.

The wait

Me and my boyfriends second anniversary is just around the corner. Last year I surprised him with a weekend off from work and without kids. We spent it at the beautiful Ritz Carlton Alabama, and was truly the best weekend ever!

The days were filled with nice dinners, chill hours in the sun, expensive champagne and just enjoying each others company.

We decided that it should be a tradition. Every year we shall go to a nice hotel and just be alone.

This year it’s a bit difficult. There is no way he will get a weekend off, so we’re postponing our little trip.

Yesterday I did however order flight tickets to visit him and spend almost two weeks with him! And with that we get to at least be together on our anniversary. With the summer we have had that might be just as good as any trip. He still needs to work, but at least we get some cozy nights watching movies, some dinners together, some new memories.

I’m already packed, the house is ready, the transport is ready, dogsitters are in place. Now it’s just the wait. The endless wait. At least that’s what it feels like.

I have learned how to be patient, how to fill my days and not miss him too much. But the second the tickets are in my hands it doesn’t work anymore. Seconds feels like hours, hours feels like days.

Two more sleeps! That’s all. I really can’t wait.

 

Healthy learning

I have made this a true learning summer. Spanish, health, skincare and so on. And I haven’t left my kids out of it either! Now I want to share my health knowledge with you!

Simple knowledge: Eat healthy, be healthy. A good health gives you better sleep, a nicer body, more energy, a natural glow, do I need to continue? We all know this, it’s more about the how.

What do YOU do for your health?

I’m lazy with my health, and I have no problem admitting that. I’m lucky because I can eat chocolate every day, drink cola with every meal and eat all the junk food I want without gaining a pound. The down part is that my skin doesn’t handle it as well as my weight. Neither does my energy. I was waking up every morning with my body feeling heavy, my skin was getting worse and my hair started breaking off. The worst has been my vitamin levels. They’re always far too low.

Ever felt the same?

Through my learning these last few months I have also had the pleasure of testing. I know what my body needs, I just haven’t given it to myself before. Now I have been on my vitamins long enough to say that yes, it is them changing my life!

My hair is getting better day by day. I wake up full of energy and need less sleep. My headaches and sore muscles are getting better. My skin is perfect, and I get comments on it nearly every day! I feel better and I look better.

Wether you need to lose weight, gain weight, tone up, get more energy or just feel healthier, I can help you!

I take two little capsules a day, a real fruit/vegetable bomb. And I’m so happy about these products that I have started my own team here in Tenerife.
