don’t cry over spilled milk

Uncategorized,14 July 2016

I never watch the news. I never read news and I try to at least stay away from getting in contact with news first thing in the morning. This is a choice I’ve taken. Not the most popular or appreciated lifestyle at the university I’m studying at, but something that is nothing less than life changing for me. I know I can’t escape the news and I of course want to know what’s going on. I also know they will come to me sooner or later.

What I find disturbing about the news is what they choose to feature and expose. I am the kind of person who believe in the power of the mind, visualizing, working on ourselves from within and so on. I believe attitude can change a life and that attitude towards life can be practiced. I know for a fact how I work myself. No one has a friction free life, but how we choose to tackle those bumps is what matters. I believe that positivity is contagious  and that negativity attract and generates more negativity.

Why do the news always choose to inform us on all the negative, scary, sad and terrible things going on when there is so much good in the world. So many beautiful things happen every day. People do good things for one another, businesses become successful and wonderful inventions are created. I want to read more about that. I want to see more of how far mankind has taken us and feel hopeful about the future.

Do I want to turn the blindside towards reality and live in a pink bubble? No I don’t. I just don’t believe that exposing and in worst case binging in world crises will make me a better person. I get worried, sad and angry which in turn will affect my mood which affect the people around me and what I put out there. I want to believe that trying to be positive will make me a better person, a kinder friend and person to be around. Most importantly my actions become my children’s role model. I believe that what my children see will affect them and I want to bring up people with an open mind and kind heart, hoping they will adapt and recycle.

Just got back from the cottage and oh how I love taking a couple days off without any social media or blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I also really love coming back after some time spent with happy and loud children, family and relatives. This blog is the perfect way to collect my thoughts and reflect over things. Even though I focus on fashion it’s still a great place for me to go back and remind myself of happenings and feelings that I later can connect with the pictures I post.

Today really felt like fall came by for a quick visit. Even though I’m not by far ready to return to normal life and duties, I can’t help myself from dreaming of darker evenings, strict routines, fresh air (without allergies) and a colorful nature. This fall feels exciting but I also have some anxiety about how everything will fall into place being home with Greta, studying and working. Only time will tell, and as usual I’m sure everything will turn out just fine. It’s just the unknown that feels difficult and sometimes scary to grab, but I’ll try to focus on looking at things with curiosity instead of being afraid, just like my daughter has thought me.
