Do the work on yourself

27 August 2015

 

 

While I’m travelling right now, I’m getting to understand myself on a deeper level.

Although life on the road is exciting with all it’s happenings and adventures, reality still remains the same – your life the way it truly is. No matter where you are on this planet, you can never escape from yourself. I try and do this at times, thinking the grass is greener on the other side. But it never is, because your life follows you wherever you go.

I’ve decided to continue do some serious work on myself and my life. I have moments where I feel a bit lost, when I lose focus, but I’m determined to not let go of what I’m here to do. I want to become better as a person. I want to grow. I want to resolve certain issues that are holding my inner potential back. I want to enter a more sustainable level of happiness. I want to heal myself. I want to heal my past. My relationships with family, ex and future boyfriends, and so on.

 

 

What I will be working on right now:

– I want to fully learn how to forgive. Letting go of infected childhood disappointments with parents. Nobody came to this earth to be perfect, so it’s time to let go of the expectations and just accept.

– I want to grow more confidence and self-esteem. To be able to do whatever I want to do, I need to really believe in myself. It’s not so easy, even for a person who seem quite confident like me. But we always have those little rotten seeds in us, giving us that ounce of disbelief, and that’s when we give up before trying, because we’re afraid of failure.

– I want to become less of a control freak. This might be one of the hardest cookies to crack, because taking control is the easiest escape of it all. But sometimes we need to simply surrender in life, letting things go to the hands of universe – and let destiny play it’s role.

 

 

– I need to continue work on my procrastination issues. This is a struggle. I get so easily distracted, and then my productivity runs on a level of slow motion. I want to accomplish so many things. But nothing will ever come out of it simply by talking about it. It’s all about getting down to business.

– I need to make peace with loneliness. Stop fearing it. Escaping in to “quick fixes” like friends, lovers, boyfriends will never resolve what brings up the loneliness from the beginning. I need to make friends with this daunting feeling. And accept, because it’s a natural state in life which we should not fear. It’s part of life at times.

 

 

This is only the tip of the iceberg. We are all on a very long journey ahead, a journey meant for healing and learning. The reason why I’ve decided I cannot escape my issues anymore, is because I’m really facing them right now while travelling on my own. And I guess it’s very healthy in many ways, even though it at times does not feel like a blessing. But it is. And only if we put our minds to it to fix ourselves, anything can happen. Only then will we reach another level in life, a level of bliss, where we can find true happiness. I really want to make a change this time. I will certainly give it my 100%. Thank you for sharing my path with me. <3

Last days of summer

27 August 2015

 

Europe is slowly wrapping up it’s summer. Fall is on the way! So Let’s enjoy the little that is left… 

But the big question is, did you all have a good summer? Any high lights?

My summer was slow and cold. Had higher expectations in the beginning of summer, yet things didn’t turn out the way I thought they would. But it’s always like that. When you expect something – the energy of your expectations seems to block things to happen the way you want them to. So no matter how hard it is, next year – I’m going to try and expect absolutely nothing!

But it was not too bad overall. My summer started really mid august when I left for Asia, and it’s still going strong :)

My Breakfast in Bali

26 August 2015

 

 

Good morning Bali,

I’ve finally recovered from my flu and left Ubud to explore the busy life of Seminyak – once again. 

Having breakfast right now in my favourite organic café “Earth Market”. Here you can get your fresh juices and healthy foods, I’m all about eating as raw as possible at the moment. Usually I’m juicing in the morning and start my day with loads of fruits and a wheatgrass shot (one shot equals 1 kg of fresh vegetable intake). Then If I keep on juicing and staying hydrated drinking fresh coconut water, I don’t really get much food cravings until late afternoon. I guess it’s also due to the heat, but I’ve been eating maximum one hot meal a day. And it’s been working absolutely fine!

I also think that whenever we are back home, we are usually over eating because we are bored. But when we are travelling, there is so much to do, so many impressions for the brain to take in – that we simply don’t have the time to think too much about food.

Well, it doesn’t apply to all tourists of course, as I keep seeing many stuff themselves on buffet’s and ordering burgers and club sandwiches everywhere they go. I’m so glad I’m over this type of food. Not because I don’t miss it at times, but simply because my stomach cannot handle it! The lifestyle change I did over a year ago was the best decision ever! :)
