Random Saturday Thoughts

‘Always be you. Stop trying to please others, just to be accepted by others. Please yourself. Always please yourself.’ ____________ Linda Perfectly random thoughts. When the mind is constantly talking to you it’s good to calm it down. Just rest, let it be. Get it out. The power of thoughts. It’s a creative power, which you can strengthen with a little bit of effort (or sometimes a lot) and use to make changes in your life. Be careful of what you think. Good thoughts, positive thoughts, create a positive life. Be impeccable with your words. Choose them wisely – The words you use to describe yourself and the words you use when talking to others. Success. The meaning of success in the Cambridge English Dictionary; ‘The achieving of the results wanted or hoped for.’ ‘Something that achieves positive results.’  However, we should all live our own definition of success. Success is more of a path than a destination. It’s less about the having and more about the being. Nothing outside of us will ever make us …

The power of now

‘You don’t have to move mountains in order to find the answer. Sometimes all you need is to embrace the stillness. Listen to that inner voice. It knows the way. It always does.’ _____________ Linda 5 things I noticed after meditation I’ve introduced a new habit. A new daily routine. Meditation. For 20 days straight I’ve been dedicating 5-15 minutes a day to meditation. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Already after 5 days I noticed how easily it had become a new habit of mine. A habit I most likely will stick to, like brushing my teeth. A sense of calmness. I might seem as a calm person on the outside, nevertheless, on the inside, my mind is constantly chatting. I easily get anxious, nervous and caught up in negative thoughts, but meditation has helped me a lot already, only after 20 days. Some days though, I can’t seem to concentrate at all, and the 5 minutes of meditation seem more like 5 hours. However, most of the time the time flies …

Dear September…

… you’ll be filled with power and heart. ‘She’s never alone with a soul full of heart. A sky full of stars, and a world full of hope. Never alone. Never afraid. With a soul full of passion.’ _____________ Linda With a gentle breeze you came, dear September. The wind so warm it makes our worries melt away. A mild and pleasant fall is a hundred times better than a cold and rainy summer. Dear September, embrace our hopes and dreams with your colourful and humble character. You’re exactly were you should be. Here amongst us. September is for faith. Love and compassion. It’s for knowing ones worth, and the ability to shine light in another person’s life. Taking care of the body, as well as the soul. Exploring new cities and friendships. It’s for constantly learning, constantly progressing. Small steps in the right direction. Appreciating every minute. It’s about the ability to inspire other human beings. Improving the quality of life. Challenging the body. Loving the body. Loving life. ‘Your greatness is not what …

Random Monday Thoughts

‘Late evenings in August are for dark, dark chocolate, creative thoughts, thunderstorms and sunsets.’   This summer passed by so quickly. Even though it’s still a couple of weeks left we are moving towards autumn. These past months have been dedicated to work, work, work. I feel that a holiday would be much appreciated. Usually I’m not a fan of the autumn, but at the moment I must say that I rather look forward to a more ”normal” routine; more time for things that I actually enjoy doing (such as blogging, recipe testing, writing…) more time for planning and goal setting, more time for gaining further knowledge, more time for designing a future that will help me become more fulfilled. Simply more time. Although I feel rather drained at the moment I have confidence that everything will fall into place, eventually. You came with the wind, dear summer. Late. You came late. The air humid and remarkably heavy. The breeze so pleasant it blows away our worries. You have beautiful intentions, yet unreliable features. Darling …

And in the middle of my chaos there was you

‘She was the first day of summer, chocolate cake, fireworks and birthday wishes.’ Linda   ‘Her thoughts on a piece of paper and his vulnerable soul in the empty bed, gasping for air underneath messy sheets. Early morning fog brings peace to his heart. Her mere existence is what keeps him alive. Soft raindrops against the window make him slowly feel at ease. The intensity of her gaze, and he knows, her thoughts are real.’

Dear August…

… you’re beautiful from day one. ‘The now is wow.’ _________________________________________________ Linda August, I can’t believe you’re here already. Just as with June, I didn’t have the time to say goodbye to July. She was too cold, yet filled with laughter. Please, be warmer. Please be forever. The last month of summer and it’s still June in my heart. But one thing I know, you will be filled with love, dear August.  August is for chasing dreams. Catching stars. Peaceful, dark summer nights. August is for late evening swims, for enjoying the calmness of the sea. Home made bread and fresh blueberries. August is for creativity. An imagination deeper than ever. The dark, dark sky filled with stars. August is for believing in the power of nature. The power of humanity. August is for humid days and foggy nights. For being in the present moment, appreciating every second. August is for beautiful souls searching for inner peace. Inner light. August is for kindness. August is for curiosity and being brave. ‘The earth has music for those …

Rainy days

‘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.’ 

Beautiful minds inspire others

”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.

Summer evenings…

… 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 …
