trying to figure out life

life and love

no

we already know love

do you know it takes work?

do you want to love and be loved?

do you know it means not giving up?

do you know it means loving yourself?

1

go your own path

choose the real love

the unconditional love

the self-love

the love that makes you not just fight for someone else

but yourself as well

 

life is unpredictable but I get to wake up next to someone 

I love.

Self – Love

I want to talk about self-love. About loving yourself. Loving yourself when you’re all alone. Loving yourself without makeup. Loving yourself because you’re unique and you’re you.

We all have insecurities, and when having the type of anxiety I used to have – it was more centered around other people. It is so frustrating being inside your head – and having confidence and self-love, but the second you get out in situations where you feel unsafe, all of that disappears. It used to take a second and I felt like I was robbed of everything I had when I was by myself.

So what happened? How did I push myself enough to have the same feelings about myself no matter who I’m surrounded by? How did I go from being the quiet one who only wanted to be invisible, to someone who loves herself and respect herself?

By being surrounded by my mom growing up I learned to love myself from an early age. I knew my worth and I knew I always had the right to my own opinions. I learned that my voice and dreams was just as important as anyone elses. This could unfortunately never have “saved” me from my anxiety disorder. I had to go through it, but I always had what my mom taught me in the back of my mind.

When I managed to fight the anxiety I was struggling with, and realised what I actually could do – everything changed. I took my confidence outside of home, I started speaking up and I wanted people to hear me. I’m always thinking – you only have this one life, why would you ever waste it by worrying about what other people would say or mean or think about you?! Every single one of us is going to be gone one day, and how will they opinions about you matter then, or ever? Why should it stop you from doing or saying what you want? You need to live your life to the fullest, and it always starts with loving yourself – before anything.

I know there’s so many struggling with this every day – so I wanted to write down some things you might find helpful ❤

* Write down the things you like about yourself. You can even ask your closest what they appreciate and love about you.

* Always remember you only have this one life to share your opinions, stand up for yourself and make a change.

* If someone doesn’t like you? Know that they have their own problems and there’s always a reason for something – they are probably struggling with themselves and it really is sad how that’s the only way they can make themselves feel better. Know it’s not worth any of your attention. Focus on you and your life. They are the ones wasting time.

* You are UNIQUE and no one is like you!

* Find a hobby. Maybe you’re wondering how this will help with self-love? If you spend day by day looking at people and what they are doing with their lives – you won’t feel good about yourself. Pursue something! Do something for yourself, and get good at it – or even just improve. You are capable of so many great things. Do it for yourself and no one else.

* STOP COMPARING YOURSELF! I know people do this every single day. Why do you want to look like someone else?! You are so special. There’s so many inspiring people out there and I get inspired every day, but I would never wanna be them. The world already has one of him or her – I wanna be me because no one else has that. You should own it – it’s so amazing.

Be good, do good – and love yourself.

In My Great Grandma’s Dress

Feeling proud to be able to wear this dress ❤ It’s actually 38 years old, and used to be my great grandma’s dress. She loved it so much and even though she’s not here to see me in it, I’m so happy I get to wear it. In these pictures you can see a little bit of my hometown and it’s beauty. It was actually -15 while taking these pictures so I wasn’t very comfortable, but I just had to pretend.

It might not be that much going on here, but I’m so proud to have such a beautiful hometown.

My Fav YouTube Videos!!

It’s quite a few YouTube videos on the channel now – so I thought I would share some of my favourites with you! It used to be only my channel so I do have some videos that’s fun for me to look back at, but probably a bit boring for everyone else, which is why I put some on private now. Now it’s me and Dan’s channel together because of the videos we have already done, and the ones to come!

But I thought we’d do a little flashback and look at some of my favourite ones on the channel! And maybe you can share yours!

Who remembers this?!? Hahaha. It was our first ever video and I remember he was surprisingly willing to do a video with me and for me to put it out. Have we changed any? Lol.

So unforgettable! One of the most amazing trips of my life. Dan wasn’t even supposed to be there, but we were away from each other for two weeks and he found the cheapest flight – and three days later he landed in Bangkok. It was my first time in Thailand, and his ever time outside of England and on a plane! So special.

Haha and of course this one!! It wasn’t as easy to convince him as when he got to do my makeup, but I managed it and I was so happy lol. I remember you guys liked this one a lot as well! Maybe it’s time to do it again?? 😀

DEATH. This one almost killed me. Or at least made the ambulance come to my house and I had to go to the ER. Don’t eat a ghost chili guys… Especially if you chew it whole because it will be chilling in your stomach hours later just burning up.

Workout video! Some of my fav workouts that I still do today. But with a tiny bit bigger booty and a stronger body. Hard work pays off. Maybe I should do another one with some new exercises?

First prank! This one was funny and I really got him. Dan said he would get me back, but I’m still here waiting. Hmmm. Maybe he just can’t do it as good as me 🙂

Back On A Plane Tomorrow?!

IMG_0678IMG_0670

These pictures are from our last day in the sunshine! I’m so done with being in my small town when it’s winter time – there’s no light at any time of the day and no opportunities here. I can be home for a little while on holiday, but no longer. I need light, opportunities, creativeness and new things.

It was really nice to see Dan again of course, and today we have been planning this year a bit more. We want to travel together and be sure to work hard with all the opportunities we are so lucky to have, but it all takes a whole lot of planning and work – but we’ll get there! Feels great to be on the way at least. Im excited.

I’m already leaving for one day in Oslo tomorrow for a meeting actually, very quick trip but I’m really happy I’ll get to see my Mathilde while I’m there. Best friends but always living in different countries or just not in the same place at the same time sucks, but priorities are always the most important, so at least I’ll get two evenings with her – and more to come in 2018. ❤

How Long Am I Staying? Where Am I Going Next?

Thank you so much for all the love after my previous post ❤ It’s amazing, and I hope some of you got inspired and realized how important it is to work on yourself and the love you have for yourself – because if you dont have that you’ll never be happy no matter what you look like.

So in two weeks I will actually be back home in Norway at this time! That’s crazy! I can’t believe my time here is almost up already… I’m so happy about what I’ve made happen with such a short amount of time though, not even two months. And I can’t wait to come back here! I’ve figured out the answer to the question which was part of the reason why I came here – and that was if this is the place I need to be in my life right now – and yeah, looks like this is where I should be.

When I get back I will only be home for about a week, and then I will go to Gran Canaria. My mom and I has this tradition that we always go somewhere together once a year for a girls trip and to spend time together, which we’ll always keep doing ❤ It’s been a while since our last time, so I think it’s gonna be really good.

Right now I’m making the most out of my last weeks here, and then I’m so excited to come home and see Dan who’s back home working right now! Before this the longest we had been apart was actually only two weeks, and that is literally from the second we first met – ever, haha. Crazy!
