THREE THINGS

Hi there, Three things on my mind right now; One, I hope your day is as sunny as mine! Two, I really feel like sharing this beautiful inspiration from Alexander White, an apartment to die for and Third and last; the divorce of Isabella Löwengrip.

I find it shocking and I can’t stop thinking about it. She has been one of my role models for a long time, and somebody that seemed to have such a good balance between business and family life. And on Sunday they announced the divorce. I feel so sad for her, she said in her previous blogpost that she’s lending an apartment in Stockholm city and I wonder how that split will go with her having all the success and her husband who’s the more passive one. It will for sure go down in Swedish history where the essence of gender equality and roles never been more present. And it reminds me to never take love and happiness for granted.

Isabella wrote on her blog something like...

"Your company will never wake up and say they don't love you anymore". True words...

SUNNY SIDE UP

Good morning, I finally opened my bedroom blinders and and felt a hint of summer. It’s already 22 degrees outside and I started my day with a power walk. There is nothing better than to breath the fresh air and listen to the birds in the morning. Apart from listening to birds I listened to Framgangspodden, a special episod about meditation and self control. I find it interesting how one can control our own minds and thoughts and direct ourselves to more success and happiness.

Instead of thinking when you wake up “I wonder what will happen today” you can wake up and pre decide “this will happen today”. Your ego is the one deciding most of the feelings and actions in your mind, like small thing as to itch when it’s itching, look at your phone just because you have the urge to or shout at someone because you feel angry. These actions consume our time and controls our behaviour. I end it there and let you do your own research. The point is, don't let your ego drive you; drive your own ego.

BELONGING SOMEWHERE
bloggers Zurich

The importance of belonging somewhere is so important for us humans, and I admit; very much for me too. Especially when it comes to a profession, do you know the feeling of suddenly being surrounded by likeminded individuals and how much energy that gives? That is how I felt the other day at the Westwing event. Being in a group of extraordinary women; super beautififul and intelligent and with a passion for social media and endless discussions about photos, tools and software and for the occasion also interior. It’s nice, just so nice to feel that I’m belonging in this group of professional bloggers. Because blogging can sometimes feel very lonely.... In addition to this I must say I’ve reach a personal goal. I wrote on my blog in January 2017, 10 days after I started my blog that I will strive to be among the top ten bloggers in Zurich. Now I am. I found this fantastic quote by Stephen Chbosky; that describes my feeling last Thursday; “I don’t even remember the season. I just remember walking between them and feeling for the first time that I belonged somewhere.”

FRIENDSHIPS

Hi :) I hope you're having a nice Sunday evening. I'm right now sitting at the lakeside in Zurich writing this post. I overlooking the swiss mountains full of snow even if it's warm where I am and thinking if someone is up there climbing. Anyhow, Im feeling lucky; I'm together with the people I love; my partner and friends and the sun is shining. What more can you ask for?!

RED ABOUT ME

When I was younger I wouldn't really appreciate friendships, I took them for granted and I honestly didn't care so much about friends. I moved around so much so I never really saw the point of making long lasting friendships. Now I do, and I've moved to the last city in my life. I made that promise to myself. However sometimes it's almost like two voices inside me; one saying I should stay home and work and do something more valuable than just hang out and the other voice telling me or almost forcing me to go see my friends. Im absolutely not spontaneous, I always have a schedule in my head. I'm probably one of these people that one would classify as introvert but I'm forcing myself to be social. And once I'm in the social context, I find it the best moments there is.

RED ABOUT ME

I love this quote; exactly how I think friendships should be

I'm very quite, probably surprising to many of you. I'm a thinker and a doer but not a talker. I can sit in a dinner and be quite the whole evening and in groups I'm disappearing, while being with my family or my partner and talk like no tomorrow. It's about the setting and what I can contribute and extract. My thoughts about conversations are rather simple; I should either bring value or extract value; it sounds insane when I write this but I just try to put my words into thoughts. And then there are a handful of people I spend time with when these rules don't apply, these are the closest soulmates where no rules applies. Have a lovely night,

KILL WITH KINDNESS
Hello hello, I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday. I was just outside carrying out my olive tree. I got the lovely tree as a birthday present last year from my parents. It has been inside in our staircase during the winter but it seems to not have liked it very much as it’s all dry. Anyone who know’s what to do with it more than watering it?

So what else this morning? Well, I cried when hurting my finger this morning, I managed to squeeze it between the shelves (I know really stupid..) but that was not the worst thing; I was surprised when opening my Instagram when an older, bitter Norwegian woman had directed a comment to me on her own Instagram feed telling me that I should not like her followers pictures and that I’m unprofessional and spam like doing so. First thing, her followers are my followers and I love to comment and engage with my followers, secondly, I have found great accounts via her instagram with lots of inspiration. ..... I think this woman is triggered by jealousy or own complexes. So, "kill it with kindness", in reply to her negativity I tagged her in my picture with the text of “ I hope only good energies are reaching you today. Recharge and rest and be kind to your surrounding.”. Jealousy and negativity is something that I’m truly allergic too and getting individuals who’s targeting you with comments like these should not be allowed to even have Instagram accounts. It makes me upset and sad. I can’t believe some individual still spreading hate on the internet or over social media, it feels so last year.

So, what did I do to get in a good mood again? I had breakfast with lots of Nutella on my bread and I baked; one rhubarb pie and a Swedish sugar cake with carrots, put in the freezer and take out on Sunday’s like these. Enjoy your day and spread love, not hate.

Surrond yourself with good energies and people and things that makes you happy. Get rid of all haters, shake them of.

However, Hugs to all of you lovely people who spread love here and everywhere., /Sofia
