This family just got back home from some family time well spent at the public swimming pool. As you might guess we were not the only once who thought swimming was a great idea for Saturday morning ;). Me and Greta have attended baby swim ever since she was 3 months old. She is so brave and happy swimmer by now which is fun to watch.

I don’t have much on my agenda today which is exactly how I prefer my Saturdays to look like. I’m just going to spend my day in my sweats, eat a slow and nice lunch, study a little and perhaps go for a walk later.Tomorrow will be a lot more glamorous, but first I need to charge my batteries being a slob for a day ;).

Pictures obviously not from today. These were taken a couple of weeks ago and I just wanted to say that I think I’ve worn this black dress from Tiger of Sweden at least 3 days a week for the past few weeks. Such a great piece to wear with almost anything for any occasion! Goes with sneakers, heels, a blazer, cardigan or a cool leather vest. Simplicity and good basics are really growing more and more on me as we speak. I have once again gotten rid of a huge pile of clothes and now I’ve come up with an even more strict rule for myself. At least three pieces has to go for every one new piece coming into my closet. But don’t you worry, I will never quit shopping since I’m not a quitter ;).

Have a fantastic day people!

personal,26 March 2015

Today has been a weird day in many ways. Right from the start I feel like I’ve been attacked with bad news from left to right. Sad stories about people dying from sickness, depressing and horrible headlines in the newspaper, people losing their jobs, endings of friendships and couples fighting violently in the middle of the street on my way home from school. Some days I simply feel disappointed in everything.

I also feel like it can be too much to handle. I have a tendency to over analyze and then I almost lose faith. Even though I rarely choose to read the newspaper, news attack me everywhere I look. I of course need and want to be updated with what’s going on in the world around me, but I need to draw my own limits or then it will effect my well being. Realizing how so many people struggle with mental illness, depression and terrible things that ruin not only their own lives but can ruin the lives of other people, makes me feel helpless and sad.

“Be kind to unkind people. They need it the most”

Sometimes I wish I could just close the doors to reality and live in a protected bubble for a while. All I know is that I need to remind myself that family, friendships and people that bring happiness and love into my life is what is most important. No power, money or success will ever make us feel as good as the people we love and whom love us. There is not much one person alone can do, but we can all control our own behavior and actions. Kindness and unselfishness is so easy to spread, but can solve even the most serious problems.
