5 things…

DSC04030…you didn’t know about my addictions:

  • My absolute favorite candy is Reese’s. I could eat it every single day for the rest of my life. I mean it. Too bad, that we don’t have it here in Sweden, but I remember the last time I was in the US,  half of my luggage was full of it. #yummy
  • I am addicted to Candy Crush. There, I said it. I spend way too much time trying to get to another level. Gotta delete it from my iPhone, or should I keep it,haha? #what#to#do?
  • I have so many pairs of shoes, but it seems like it’s never enough. I mean, every time I go out somewhere, I have a dilemma: which pair of shoes should I wear ? #life#is#hard
  • I’ve probably said it before, but I am totally addicted to orange juice. Can’t start my morning without it. #impossible
  • Music is everywhere: I am either practicing myself, writing music, listening to music or singing in my head. 24/7. #never#alone

Quote of the week

”DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME LOOKING BACK ON WHAT YOU’VE LOST. MOVE ON, BECAUSE LIFE IS NOT MEANT TO BE TRAVELED BACKWARDS.”

jag&nadiaI’ve had a really lovely time in Göteborg, visiting my sister and her family, but it’s time to go back to reality and all my music projects. Can’t wait to be working on them again after taking a 3-day-vacation. :) + can’t wait to go back to the gym and exercise!!! It’s almost better than going out and partying. No, it is better!!! (Bobo, if you are reading this: me+you+gym+tonight=awesome idea??) It is so much better! Not only you get faster&stronger and the beach body 2o14, but you also meet so many inspiring (and good-looking) people.

I would have never ever imagined in my entire life, that I would love exercising! I mean, when I was still studying in high school, I thought it was the most boring class to go to (well, except when we were playing basketball. Loved it!)

  • Before 1k felt like it will never gonna end. Now – bring it now! Working towards 10k run!
  • Before I couldn’t do even 1 single pull up. Now – still damn hard, but I am working for it. The most important part that it’s so much fun!
  • Before gymnastics seemed impossible. Now – I can stand on my hands, do push ups standing up side down and working on a backflip. Hell yeaaah!

I’ve a lot of things to learn and get better at. But the most important part is, that I started enjoying it and believing in myself! The first few months at the gym weren’t so fun, because I would try to come up with 100 of excuses why I should stay at home or do something else instead of exercising. If I was looking backwards at my high school self who hated exercising, I would have never lifted my booty and learned all the stuff that I know today.

This is a good example, that nothing is impossible. It actually doesn’t matter what happened in the past, because it has already happened! Focus on your best future self by working on it now!

Blue

Your body is the only home you have and will have until your soul will leave it for good and move somewhere else (if you believe in reincarnation. I kinda do). So, why not to become friends with it, take care of it and love it? Why not to treat it=yourself with a healthy meal, a walk in the nature or just to say ”I love you” in front of the mirror? Why do many people think that taking care of yourself first is sooo ego? I mean, who else is gonna do that if not you?

There are so many people who can’t walk, can’t see or hear. All of these things are pretty natural for you and me so why not to be grateful for that? Why there is a trend that you have to be unhappy with how you look?

Too fat, too small, want blue eyes instead of green, too short, too tall, want to change skin color, want to become a vampire (???), lips are too small, chest is too flat, booty is too big, hair color is a complete mess and don’t even ask about the nose.

I think TV, internet, celebrities and beauty magazines with their photoshoped models made us think, that we should look exactly like they do. The truth is that everyone is beautiful in their own way, which we have to embrace instead of doing 100 plastic surgeries to look like someone else. I mean, I don’t really care how many surgeries you wanna do as long as you are doing it only for yourself. Not because someone else made you think that you should change how you look.

I have a good self-confidence, but sometimes even I feel unhappy with my body. Not because I am unhappy, but because someone else (usually beauty magazines. Damn you all!!!) makes me think that I should change the way my body looks. NOT OK. Ain’t gonna accept that.

My body is my temple and your body should be yours. Do not accept or even listen to other negative people. It’s not worth spending your precious time on something worthless like this.

And for all of you haters out there, who leave nasty comments about how other people should look- start loving yourselves, we all know that 99,9% of you are just jealous and the rest – mentally damaged.

Peace <3

A bit of everything

I’ve noticed that every time I am sitting on the train, I get so so many new ideas and get inspired just by getting on board. I am not really sure what exactly makes me feel in that way (maybe a smell of  black coffee and a newspaper + my travel playlist on Spotify and the feeling itself that I am traveling?), but I should totally do it more often. Seems that I am more creative now that I’ve been for the past few weeks. #swag

TGIF, huh? :D Well for me it means my nephews 1st Birthday and a whole weekend hanging out with my sister’s family in Göteborg. Good to have a little break, since the past few weeks were so intense. But I don’t complain. It’s fun to be working with something that you really love – in my case, it’s music. Both classical and pop. My dream is coming true, slowly, but it’s happening. #excited

Every time in the mornings. before I get out of my bed (sometimes I literally have to roll out of it. That’s how difficult it is…) I make a list in my head of things that I am thankful for, things that make me happy and how I would like to spend my day. It helps to focus only on positive things and even if something doesn’t go as I wished, it doesn’t affect me as much anymore. Probably, because I believe in myself much more than I did before and probably because I kinda know that everything will solve itself eventually. It always happens, right?

So, here comes today’s happy list:

  1. The smell of coffee. It makes me feel so calm inside.
  2. Music. Especially Shostakovich. It reminds me how much i actually love playing violin. Magical.
  3. Spring feeling. Like you are in love, but don’t really know how.

What stands on your happy list?

Monday

”The greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity or power, but self-rejection” – Henri Nouwen

SONY DSCSo, how to avoid this self-rejection trap if all your thoughts are negative? How to avoid negative thoughts if one of the closest people are negative towards you? It’s a difficult one…

However, it’s Monday- a new week and new possibilities and I should be damn grateful for it! And, if you guys feel sad, just listen to this:

Think positive

Hola amigos!

Que pasa?

Well, to be honest my cold is not over. It’s getting there, but still not over. It’s been 2 freakin’ week of me coughing  yellow things out of my chest.  Are you amigos grossed out? It’s just a beginning…

Jokes aside.

I didn’t really have time to be in bed and feel sorry for myself, so I was working, practicing, training and doing usual stuff. This week is gonna be more than exiting, because I am having to gigs and a weekend off to go to Göteborg and celebrate my nephews 1st Birthday :)

I’ve also tried to stay as positive as possible and don’t let any sad thoughts come into my head. And if they do show up, I try to replace them with what I appreciate in my life and what makes me happy! And it really works! It’s like a building a new habit – think positive!

I wish you all a great start of the week :)

Roses are red…

Roses are red                                                                                                                                                                                                            Violets are blue,                                                                                                                                                                                                       ’cause being sick                                                                                                                                                                                                      Should be TABOO.

OK, I really do complain a lot these past few days, but this stupid virus doesn’t want to go away. Not even garlic helps anymore… However, I have an amazing family who call me everyday to make sure, that I am getting better and an amazing friend aka The Queen Of All Queens who brought breakfast to my bed this morning. <3 Sometimes, being sick is not that bad after all.

I wanted to wish you all a great day! Don’t forget to smile and eat lots of vitamin C!!
