Just What I Needed!

My Friday so far has been exactly what I needed. I got off work at half past two and at the moment I walked out the doors from work, my body felt drained and my brain fried. I couldn’t drag my ass home fast enough.

As soon as I got inside I put on my comfy pants. I made some delicious coffee and some food, put on a sappy movie (The Holiday… Don’t laugh!) and I just relaxed completely. Let my mind drift and enjoyed the movie and the quiet around me. There’s been so much going on lately (as you may have noticed) and my brain doesn’t really have an off switch. So for me to finally have some peace and quiet, without much planed at all for an entire weekend feels bloody fantastic.

I’m going to write, be lazy, meditate and just do whatever I feel like doing. This is just what I needed! I have now slumped down on my couch, made myself a cup of tea and I’m watching Eat, Pray, Love (a movie that always makes me smile) and I intend to stay here for the rest of the night.

I want to send a special thank you to teapigs Norway for sending me a care package with lots of tea 💛 Right now I’m enjoying a cup of Chamomile tea. Perfect for my relaxed Friday night!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday!


Take the Time!

When I’m in the zone with my creative work, I sometimes have a hard time with taking breaks and letting things go! I can get so invested in the things that I’m working on that I can forget to eat and sleep, but somehow I always remember to fill up my coffee cup. Funny how that works!

Recently I’ve been highly motivated and with a creative drive that I haven’t had in a long while. It’s been amazing, but it has also taken its toll on me. The struggle to fit more hours in a day is very much present, even though I know it’s not possible. I have a full time job, and I’ve now worked out a pretty hefty schedule when it comes to my creative work as well.

And in between that, I have to be a mom and try to make time for my dear friends as well. And the one thing that I have to be very careful not to neglect is me-time!

Heck knows, I’ve done that mistake many times in the past. This time around though, I choose to believe that I’ve somewhat learned from those mistakes.

That is why I’ve set aside time this weekend to just relax. I’m doing a lot of writing and some filming too, but I’m also taking the time to just lounge on the couch with a good book, play games with Leander, cuddle with Mork, write in my journal and to sleep in.

I just started reading The Secret Life of Cows and it’s truly fascinating, and equally horrifying when knowing how badly most of them are treated.

I’m even going to set aside some time to get back into yoga and meditation again. I’ve been neglecting that lately, and my body does not approve!

It’s so important to take the time to listen to one’s body. To relax and to enjoy! Life is not all about working, it’s about living that great story! And sometimes the story doesn’t have to take you far away to be great, sometimes it’s happening right at home.

Take time to be with you! Love yourself!

And when you struggle to find the love, know that I’m here, and I love you! ❤️
