‘I just wanna stay up all nigth, write poetry and watch the stars.’ ‘She is an introvert who loves to connect with people. She is a morning person who loves staying up late. She is a heavy coffee drinker who loves detoxing her body with healthy foods. She is a yoga lover who loves a sweaty boxing session. She may not say much, but her mind is constantly chatting. She is a little bit of everything, although she sometimes feels like nothing. Always carrying her soul close to her heart. The heart – her most valuable asset. You damage her heart, you damage her entire being.’ ￼
‘Don’t be eye candy, be soulfood.’ On Sundays we rest. Breathe deeper and stay in bed until noon. We take long walks while enjoying warm raindrops and dark grey sky. Drink plenty of tea and read old books. And we laugh. We laugh a lot. ‘Dear life, some days I don’t bother taking you seriously. Cause if I did I would lose my mind.’ –L-
”Follow your soul. It knows the way.” Feeding my soul with peanut butter, medjool dates, yin yoga, strawberries, coffee, boxing, power walks, early mornings, writing, red lipstick, granola, books, music, nature, hopes & dreams, sunlight, Skype calls, fresh flowers, stretching, quick but intense workouts, silence, greens, sweet potato, food (obviously), shopping, more music, more coffee (I know! I need to stop drinking that stuff, but I’m healthy despite all the coffee. I swear) bike rides, water, studying nutrition, improving my english and getting plenty of sleep. Yes, I’m definitely ready for work in a couple of days.
… you’re pure magic. ”To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist” – Oscar Wilde Sundays are for dark nights. Sunset, warm bed sheets and messy hair. The cold, fresh air passes through the open window, kissing the soul. Feeding it hope. Despite the rain it’s still a new night. A new night to catch dreams. To wish upon a star. Remember to dream big. Nevertheless, it’s the night time – everything is possible with a little bit of faith and a good night’s sleep. I’m grateful for the sunlight kissing my skin. For raindrops. For practising yoga and stretching out every inch of my body, getting more flexible every day. I’m grateful for every book that I’ve been reading. For the music. For the vegan coconut mint-chocolate ice cream (oh, that was a long name). I’m grateful for my bike. For the first swim of the summer. For ending every workout session with boxing. I’m grateful for writing about everything and nothing. For being able to breathe lightly, feeling …
… you came too early, as per usual. ”i’m going to make everything around me ravishing – that is the purpose.” Linda I didn’t even have the time to say goodbye to June, since I thought you would come tomorrow. You know how much I cherish June. June is my favourite. Although that doesn’t mean I don’t like you. I do. It’s just that I prefer June. But anyways July! I think we will get along pretty well. Just promise me one thing. Be warmer than June. Ok? I know you want to. July is for making progress. For believing in miracles. The warm days feeding us with energy. July is for ice cream. For family get-togethers and mosquito bites. July is for meeting childhood friends who will always be friends although you meet far too seldom. July is for sunscreen and cold sea. For late night runs. For thunderstorm and heavy rains. July is for festivity and reading books. July is for being me. ”Be careful who you make memories with. Those things can …
”There will be sunlight as we continue heading forward. ” Eating raw vegan chocolate, taking walks in chilly Helsinki and writing. That perfect boost during short breaks. Now back to work. Utopia As it was the last days of summer the sun had finally decided to come out. Just as it had been hiding behind the clouds the past months, waiting, it was suddenly determined to release its power. The heat had almost been unbearable the previous days. The young boy felt alive as he sat on the bench looking at the ocean, the sunlight kissing his cheeks. His heartbeat beating with quiet pace as his eyes admired the smooth sea. ‘You once told me that we never get over it. Love. But I did.’ The old man looked at him, a hopeful expression suddenly appeared on his face. ‘Teach me, my dear friend. Teach me how.’ The young boy smiled tenderly. ‘I will.’ -L-
THE PAIN 5 AM. ‘A good night’s sleep? Merely a memory,’ the young boy thought while trying to scratch his upper back. His left hand reached out to the other side of the bed, searching for something that wasn’t there. He dragged himself out of bed to open the balcony door. ‘Fresh air, I need fresh air.’ The thunderstorm was what had kept him up all night. He had never gotten over them, traumatised since early childhood. And the rashes, those damn rashes. He had never gotten rid of them either. ‘Will I ever get over this,’ he whispered to himself, staring at the empty bed. …… There he was. The old man. Sitting on the bench, with his book. The air still humid despite the rain that had been pouring down during the night. A new storm making it’s way in. The old man looked up. He placed the book in his pocket and moved to the left as soon as he saw him. His eyes gazing at the the dark clouds coming in. ‘It …
”The midnight sun makes us feel alive. Fragile. Anxious and terrified for the days being over before they have began. Short nights are all we got. Let us use them wisely. The now is all we have.” ___________________________________________________ linda The midnight sun will never set. The stillness keeping us awake. The peacefulness of the night is so rare, over before it has began. Wouldn’t miss it for the world. We have this opportunity only for a few, short weeks. Don’t let them pass unnoticed. It’s over before it has began.
… cause sometimes, all you need is beautiful words and food. Beautiful words to live by. Wholesome food to nourish your mind and body. Create, cause it makes the world a better place. Create, cause it makes you feel alive. Create, cause you’ll need a bit of magic in your life. Create, cause it makes you feel. Create, cause otherwise your soul will die. Create magic, cause sometimes, magic is all we got. Magnifique. ”If I would write my future, I would put your name in every sentence.” _________________________________________________ linda ”But baby, what if tomorrow never comes?” ”It does not matter, my darling.
