From Lost to Found – POEM

Sometimes there’s only grass

No path to follow

Direction unknown

And every answered question

Leaves you more lost than before

*

Time passes you by slowly

In the rustling of leaves

And dreams move on too fast

On cotton balls in the sky

While you are walking in circles

*

The thunderstorm comes rolling in

And you run for cover, without thought

And suddenly, so unexpected

Lost turns to found

In the flash of lightning

How did I become so lucky?

Most of us have a very dear childhood friend in mind when we think back. Can you remember yours?

It’s not a given that the wonderful childhood friendship is one that’s going to follow you into adulthood. Some gets lost along the way, and others just grow apart. Some are lost in fights (meaningless mostly) and others are hard to explain why they slipped away.

How did I become so lucky, that I got to keep my best friend?

She’s been the sunshine in my life for twenty years, and there’s a reason why I’ve never called any boyfriend my soulmate and that’s because that position has always been taken by my best friend.

How she’s been able to stick around through all my crazy and (at times) hopelessness is beyond me!

I can tell her anything, good or bad. We can tell each other the truth, without hesitation, because we’ve learned how important it is to say it like it is. We’ve grown up together, and even if we had times when the distance between us was greater than others, we always found our way back to each other.

All the laughter and all the tears are memories I cherish with my whole heart and soul. True friendship is nothing to be taken lightly. It’s a force beyond recognition. To have someone in your life that knows when to ask you the tough questions. That sees how you’re really feeling, when you haven’t even said it out loud. Someone who loves your crazy, just as much as your serious side. Someone who encourages your dreams and share theirs.

I’m sitting here with wine in my glass, writing messages with my best friend, writing this, with a smile on my mouth and tears running down my cheeks. And it’s because I’m so eternally grateful.

You inspire me. You give the best hugs! You always know just what to say to make it all feel better!

I feel so lucky to have you as a friend and I hope we can goof around together until we’re wrinkled and old, and can talk about our adventures in “the good old days”.

I love you!

A lifestyle change!

Those of you who follow me on Instagram already know about this huge change that I made to my life, a little over a week ago. It’s something that has been on my mind for quite some time, but to commit to eat felt kind of scary and overwhelming. I just didn’t have the motivational drive to start. And when it comes to complete lifestyle changes, motivation and dedication is key!

So what is this big change you ask? Drumroll please!!

I’ve gone VEGAN! 

shocked-cat

I think the decision to go vegan was made up by many little things. I’ve been tempted for so long to make the change, but I just had no idea where to start. But then I watched a video clip (a friend of mine shared it on Facebook) of a cow about to be slaughtered by a gunshot through the head, and the cow was franticly trying to avoid the little red aiming light. That’s when something just clicked inside of me, and I just decided that it was time to make a difference.

And you might think that it doesn’t make that much of a difference in the big picture of thing! But the big picture is composed by all of us individuals and the choices we make. And guess what! A vegan lifestyle of one person, saves one animal. EVERY DAY! That adds up to a whole lot of them over the years. And it’s not only about saving animal lives (even though that’s hugely important), it’s about our planet (pollution, saving the rainforest etc) and it’s also about my own health.

When you start to really look at the food labels, it’s cringeworthy to see what it is we’re putting inside of us on a daily basis. No wonder we’re getting sicker and fatter. It’s time to take care of this body. It’s the only one I’ll ever have!

And I’ve found so many amazing vegan recipes already!

Like these vegan salty chocolate cookies:

I’ve been vegan for little over a week now, and I already feel so much better!

So I’m taking you with me on this journey! Hop along and discover with me 🙂

Hidden – POEM

I’ve hidden you in a box

Down in the darkness

Where only I can find you

The path to the box is hidden too

By unspoken dreams

And lost words

Don’t go looking for you

You won’t like what you find

You’ll get lost in the darkness

I hid you away for a reason

You have been warned
