It is fun to see what motivation does to people. In a week Sam is going for his first rating in taekwondo. He is super nervous and very dedicated. Really fun to see how seriously he takes it and how he asks to be tested on the glossary. I really hope he makes it.
“U cant kiss too much”.
My husband’s words when I was abour to leave this morning.
And we kissed. Again.
I know that chores around the home is good for the soul. When you do them because you want them to. Like yesterday, when I could decorate for advent. hang some advents stars and candelabra in the window. My body and mind was at a place I haven’t been in weeks. The day was ended with some traditional cosy Friday in the couch.
Just what I needed.
It is crucial to share or anchore what you do.
If not, people do not know what you have done and someone else might take cred for it.
It took me 39 years, 6 weeks and one day to figure that out.
Better late than never.
November is grey. Outside and inside. Grey. November is grey.
This week can only be summarized in two words: good stuff. I have had some really good conversations with really good people, one that went out the door only 10 minutes ago… another that I have the sense I will not see too often in the future . But the conversations were splendid learned new things. Love it.
What can I do for a living where all I need to do is to talk a little, listen a lot and learn even more? Please enlighten me.
Today I had some pictures taken of me for my web pages, by photographer, Emelie Ohlsson. So strange to stand in front of the camera. Even if I (I am one of the few) love to be in pictures I actually was a little nervous. Then it becomes very uplifting to read the following on her blog:
“Aftewards I had a photoshoot with beautiful Louise. She attened one of my courses years ago and is today working as a photographer. She wanted some nice pictures of herself (which was very easy, sooo good looking) Sneak preview will come tomorrow.”
That is all you need a grey November evening, one more day closer to forty. But then again, forty is the new twenty.
Today, it is father’s day in Sweden.
I do not support commercial happenings. I love my father, mother, children and other dear ones everyday and not because the retailing industry tells me to. But I do not dislike the fact that we should appreciate one another, I just hope we do it more than once a year.
And today I am happy to have a great father. Yes, he was one of those who worked much, not in a office, but as an entrepreneur with his business base at home, which lead to the fact that I saw him quite much. He is a person which I am greatly admire and who has influenced me. In some aspect we are a like, while we in other instances we are far, far away from each other. Even so I still respect him as he respects me (even he needs to tell me, and all others, that his opinion is the right one).
The other man I tribute is naturally my husband. He is the way he is, he to. And that is exactly why I love him. He, to quote Michael Bolton – “he completes me”. Hi is my ying and my yang. My perspective when I lack it.
Life is a journey. I am on mine and step by step (my patient really get a good training here) its getting clearer for me.
I look forward to this fall and winter and where it will take me.
Life is as great as you make it.
