Killing time

”…and he knew she was much more than a sentence. she was the entire storyline. the unwritten ending.”   Looking for a way to kill time? Write. ”Write hard and clear about what hurts.” – Ernest Hemingway Or just write whatever comes to your mind. Do whatever floats your boat; spend your precious time wisely. Focus on what makes you happy. Focus on being brave. Recognize the little voice in your head that says you can’t do it. Get rid of self-doubt. Dear human, you can do anything. Have faith in yourself. Be confident. You might feel scared. Alone. That’s totally fine. You’re human. But remember, you’re never alone with a sky full of stars. Fall deeply, madly in love with yourself. With your life. And the world will fall deeply, madly in love with you. Some things you better not ever forget.  ❤     in every one of his dreams she exists and with the sun she disappears     she laughs and he knows the world needs more of her     …

Paint Your Words

”Meet me at midnight underneath the stars. I’ll bring my books and you’ll bring your heart.”     she loves too deep in a shallow world     the midnight sky turned her into a wildly creative masterpiece just as her smile turned him into a dangerously naive human     her smile may be sweet her gaze may be innocent her acts may be the kindest the world ever experienced she may be the face you can’t forget but that soul that soul is nothing but pure lust deep within lies a dark, deep intense desire how dare you neglect  a flaming fire     come closer. pay attention, and you’ll notice the tears in her eyes are actual stars.     some call it love others call it pain he calls it her     time stands still in moments your heart dies     from all of the chaos a flower started to blossom     dreaming of her is his great escape     with her he is his most powerful …

Dear January…

… you’re beautiful just as you are, with or without snow. ”The light within her is precious. Brightens up every cold, dark heart. Come closer. Pay attention, and you’ll notice the tears in her eyes are actual stars.”   January is for growing. Taking one step at a time. Day by day. Believing in oneself. Never neglecting one’s true passions. Coming alive. Feeling grateful. The sun is out. There’s always something to be grateful for. Life. Dear human, be grateful for life. This January is all about confidence, curiosity and creativity. Three magic C’s. The time is now. The now is all you have. It’s about soft and tender snowflakes dancing along fast paced footsteps. Choose to dance. Choose to laugh. It’s your choice. It’s your life. Grow. It’s about taking action, those dreams won’t happen unless you do. Allow yourself to be scared. To not have all the answers. Be curious anyway. Let your inner being shine through. Life is damn precious. Every nanosecond is a miracle on this roller coaster. Don’t you understand you …

Believe, and you will receive

”I’m not a teacher, babe, but I can teach you something Not a preacher, but We can pray if you wanna Ain’t a doctor, but I can make you feel better But I’m great at writing physical love letters…” – Beyonce I’ve been thinking about goals a lot lately, and how I always seem to struggle with getting them down on paper or making them more clear. (Read this post about 101 lifetime goals where I talk about the difference between goals and dreams.) I’m starting to realise why I have such a problem with thinking about my goals; It has a lot to do with my insecurities – I actually thought that I can’t achieve them. I didn’t believe I could. I didn’t even think I was worthy or that I would have enough experience or skills. But, of course I can! Of course I’ve all the experience I need! I am exactly where I need to be right now. And I’m worthy. We all are worthy of achieving our biggest dreams and goals. If you’ve found yourself …

Motivational Mantras

  She possesses a peaceful confidence that screams power. She is humble, but fierce. She is stable, with a rebellious soul. She is loving, but far from naive. She chooses her struggles wisely, cause she always knew what she wanted. Dangerously intelligent she’s prepared to fight. And when that time comes;fight she does.   I haven’t yet written down any actual goals for 2018. At least not any clear and precise ones. But what I’ve done is that I’ve written down how I want to feel 2018. I think that is as important as setting goals; If you know how you want to feel when you travel through life the things you want, need and long for the most will come to you more effortlessly. Why do you want to achieve certain things? Why are they important to you? Is it just because you want to impress others, or do you want to impress yourself, improve yourself? I’ve written down 9 life mantras that I will strive to live by this year. I’ve already been …

Goodbye 2017

”The best view comes after the hardest climb.”   Every day you should learn something new. Every year you should grow. I’ve never considered New Years Eve like a time to start over, however, this year I see it as the most perfect day to leave everything that do not serve me behind, and believe that everything do happen for a reason. It’s not what happens to us that defines us, it’s our response to what happens. And response is something we can choose. Everything I’ve been through has made me who I am 2017 has been one of the toughest years ever, nevertheless, I feel I’ve grown tremendously. 2017 was the year I became more aware. I’ve learned to become more mindful, more present. And most importantly, I understand that I can always trust my intuition. I can trust myself, and all I’m capable of. I know I’m unique – we all are. I know I was meant to inspire other humans, I might not know exactly how, but I know that everything will eventually fall …

101 Lifetime Goals

”Goals have a finish line. Dreams never have to end.”   Don’t confuse your dreams with goals. Dreams are imaginary, goals produce tangible results. Goals usually have a deadline, either in the near future or several years from now. Dreams are simply dreams, if they aren’t turned into goals. Achieving a goal requires action, and you won’t reach them over night. They usually require hard work, focus and determination. However, if you want them bad enough you won’t give up on them. You shouldn’t give up on your dreams either, but remember that dreaming doesn’t take you anywhere. It’s important to have both short-term and long-term goals since it brings joy, purpose and meaning into your life. Begin by writing your goals down; it’s an excellent way to make them more specific, more tangible. You can introduce weekly goals, monthly goals, one year goals, five year goals etcetera. Write a list with several goals you’d like to achieve. Since some goals will take longer to achieve than others it’s good to include short-term goals that are somewhat …

Vegan Ginger Bread Sugar Cookies

”Christmas (noun) = The only time of the year one can sit in front of a dead tree and eat candy out of socks.”   It was December – the month of early sunsets, soft pillows, big sweaters, warm tea and long talks beside the fire. Snow flakes were soundlessly falling down from heaven, filling hearts with desire. Magic. No one could hear it, but everyone could feel it. They believed it. Life didn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. They knew life was for deep kisses, late night conversations, strange adventures, midnight walks, spreading kindness and enjoying the little things like freshly baked cookies. Lights were brighter, snow was whiter, sweaters were bigger, books were thicker, kissing was nicer, hearts were closer, people were softer. It was December – the month when the nights were crisp, and all they were wishing for was peace.    (Update: Oups, I noticed I forgot to write sugar in the recipe. I used approx. 1.5 dl coconut sugar.) ❤ Linda
