The simplest question

This week I have had a little assignment. It was just a simple question, but it turned out to be more powerful than I first thought. How can I love what I have a little more? I took a look at different areas in my life, and asked that one question. It’s the simplest little question. Even […]


As if

What if I would tell you that you actually can be, and do anything in the world? What would you do? Who would you choose to be? This past week I’ve had so many small shift of perception happening. I have started to work with a coach that I’m sure will get me to where […]


A week’s lessons

This week I have spent some time thinking about what the daily situations, actions, and stories might be here to tell me on a deeper level. Or at least what I should get from what happens. For some reason I felt like sharing them. Monday I was tired, and it was the first day back at […]


Make mistakes!

This Sunday I’m quoting Neil Gaiman and his ever so brilliant post. “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and […]



It was my birthday this week, and I love to spend this time of year in stillness reflecting on the year passed, and to simmer in what I want for the next. I have come to think that how I spend my birthday is the way I live my life. I have became so much better […]


Forgot the bead

At 8.30 pm on Wednesday evening I saw my jar of beads, and I remembered I had forgotten the bead practice in the morning. I opened the jar, took out the bead, dropped it in the other jar. The symbolism hit me. I had forgotten the bead, and I had forgotten to live with intention. […]


It’s not you, it’s me.

I found myself the other day confronted with an email that sent me right to a place of anger, resentment and hurt. I was shaking, my heart beat fast, my muscles cramped. I felt right off the bat used and stripped of what was rightfully mine to have. Ten minutes passed, twenty minutes passed, forty […]


What do you need the most right now?

My work calendar is full. I have a bunch of commitments. It’s busy. I’m finding myself catching my breath every day, having to remind myself to go slow. To breathe. To walk slow. To let go. The very limited time I have off work at the moment I want to spend with family. I try […]


When times are busy

When all lovely things come to fruition, and when all things seem to call for your attention. All at the same time. These are the times we want to be firm about our decisions. These are the times when we want to be clear about what we want. These are the times we want to know […]


Are you building walls or pathways?

Are you fighting to stay strong, or are you accepting what’s going on? Are you finding your way, or are you running away? Have you armed your forces to keep yourself safe? ‘Cause it takes energy to fight, but not to let go. How come you are building a wall to defend yourself against others, […]
