not either or, but AND.

I’ve been viewing my life and my world in a very black and white, either or, kind of a way.  I’ve been headstrong, and jumped into one thing fully to later decide something else. I’ve been an either or kind of a person. Lately I have felt sick to my stomach about it. Like I am […]

Listening

I have been thinking a lot about LISTENING this week, both listening to myself and to others. I was in Helsinki for work, script consulting on a tv series, and I also talked to the drama department at the national broadcaster there about my method as a script consultant. The talk at the broadcaster really made […]

Another door will open

It was a warm August morning in 2014 when me and Mhairi scribbled down words, quotes, and principles in our note books at Toast Bakery Cafe on the corner of 3rd street and S Harper ave in Los Angeles. This was the whole reason why we wanted to do the bead movement every morning. We wanted to […]

He took our city, but we took it back.

I attended the manifestation in Stockholm on April 9. It was a manifestation of love, as a counteraction to the terrorist attack on April 7. I was scared to go in to the city. I knew I had to so I could face the fear. As soon as I stepped out of the subway I noticed […]

Can we trust our feelings?

I had a conversation with a friend the other day about instincts, and trusting our gut when it comes to making decisions. She said those feelings can’t be fully trusted. She thought that sometimes she needs to go with her gut instincts, but at other times she can’t because they will lead her astray. If this […]

What if you are living your dream?

For the past two months I have been working with a really great coach. We have weekly talks, I have home work every week, and for the past weeks we have had daily check-ins. In our latest session she said, “What if you already are living your dream life?” I was like “What do you mean? […]

active vs passive

I read an article this week about active and passive forces. Basically there are different forces within us making us take action or not. The thing is, most of us are not aware of or question why we do what we do, which could lead us to take the wrong action or to take no […]

This week’s creative constipation

For years I have been pulled towards an idea for a new project. Every time the idea has popped up in my head I have felt this strong need to tell it, and every time I’ve walked right into a wall unable to find a way through the story. This week I found out why, […]

Should vs Must

I watched an interview with Elle Luna by Chase Jarvis on YouTube this week (watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDDw3ZaeU-s). I had never before heard about Elle, but was totally mesmerized by her appearance. There was something about her that rang so true. She was truly present. She talked about the difference between should and must. The quote […]

Taking that leap of faith

A week ago I launched my first ever podcast ‘Framgångar och Motgångar’ (‘Success and Setbacks’). What a ride! I started the podcast for two reasons: First I have a dream and need to open up the industry and to start to talk about how things really are in order to shine a light on how we can […]
