Something I love but rarely have the opportunity to do now a days is to stay in bed, snack on something delicious and watch movies. I never watch tv and I think I’ve seen about two movies in the past two years.

Since I have the luxury in life to have won the in-law lottery, I spoiled myself by watching two movies in a row yesterday while Greta was spending quality time with her grandparents.¬†Movies are a perfect way to escape everyday chores, and something I find very relaxing and empowering. Great movies and books always inspire me and help me create new ways of thinking. I’ve made a post about some of my favorite movies here, but now I have a few more to add on my list. Absolutely love these ones. Especially Brothers. It’s a must watch.

Love and other impossible pursuits

I’m the key to my happy

Health,personal,6 December 2015

Sometimes when the world around us feels tough and unreal and the news makes us disappointed, I have to psyke myself not to fall down in a black hole and give up on life and mankind. My favorite quote, motto and belief in life is “love conquers everything” and I refuse to live by anything else. It’s so important to push oneself to remember all the beauty that surrounds us, and to take in wonderful moments we experience in every day life.

These past two days I’ve been spending time at home alone. Totally alone. My daughter has been enjoying the company and attention of her grand parents for hours and hours during both days, and I’ve had no plans or intention on doing absolutely anything other than rest, recharge and recover from my cold. It is the first time since becoming a mother that I’ve experienced this. Felt so weird and new, but safe and familiar at the same time.

Oh how I’ve missed to take time to think, dig and organize my thoughts and be by myself in total silence. I’ve actually done nothing but laid in bed, both awake and napping. After cleaning my brain and mentally conquering my fears and disappointments, I always find myself counting my blessings. It is the cure for me to go on and continue forward with a great and hopeful attitude. Remembering all the goodness is the key to happiness in my life. Therefore it is my number one recommendation for today. Remember everything you have. Be thankful and aware, and make the best out of it.
