The World is Filled With Noise!

We are surrounded by it! I’m not talking about loud music or crazy neighbors (although some of you out there might be surrounded by that as well) no, I’m talking about the noises of expectations. All those voices, faces and adds that constantly tries to tell us how to live our lives, what kind of careers we should have, how…

Let’s Talk About Changes

Or rather the constant change in our bodies. I’ve gone through some ups and downs when it comes to weight. I went through pregnancy at age 19, and a whole lot of changes happen through that time, and for a while after as well. I’ve had periods of time where I’ve been quite fit, and then some when I have…

With No Shame!

The photo is by the wonderful Thomas Amdahl 😊 Check out his Instagram here! Isn’t it weird how the most natural part of us, the bodies that we are born in, are causing us so much anxiety, stress, and insecurity? How often do we look at it and think that it’s not good enough? How many times have we made plans…

One Comment – Years of Insecurity

I started doing a bit of work in front of the camera right after I’d turned 18. It was exciting and different. It was a new way for me to be creative, but also a way to experience other people’s creativity. Even though I did enjoy most of the modeling work that I did do back in the day, I…

The Mark ● POEM

One circle connected to another  The mark of infinity  One my fingers have made  On skin without me noticing Tracing a wish for no ending On shells of souls I wanted to stay  But neither of them turned into forever They would stay for a little while  But one after the other  They spread their wings and left Leaving my…

I’m So Sorry!

I know I talk to you all the time, and we share everything. But sometimes, there are things that I forget to tell you, and things I forget to do. I don’t tell you that you’re beautiful every day… I should! Because you are, even when you don’t think so. Even when you don’t feel like you are. Don’t believe…

Naked – POEM

I am naked To call out the voice of shame Laugh in its face Beat it at its own game   I am naked To bare my very soul What’s inside this flesh Is what makes me whole   I shed my clothes And fear screams of treason But when I really listen It’s clear that love is the only…

If Only We Could Replace Your Face

When I was about 14 years old, I had a crush on a guy that was my friend. We had som pretty long conversations over the phone, and I could always count on him being honest with me. I don’t remember much from all of the late night conversations we had, but there’s one conversation in particular that I will…

The Truth of You by Christina de Vries (Poem)

They said it was too pale my skin As if it was wrong the body I was in Young and foolish, it had to be true The words stuck to me like superglue Reminding me that I was weird And all that mattered was how I appeared   But somewhere in it all came a change Where different was no…

You don’t have to try so hard!

The first time I showed this song to one of my girlfriends she was in tear. I had the exact same reaction when I heard it the first time. Now I would like to share it with you guys! We use so much energy on trying to fit in, to look the way that the media tell us is the…
