Som barn, hade jag svårt för att lära mig läsa.
Jag hoppade över ord och förstod inte alltid innehållet.
Mina föräldrar blev oroliga över ifall jag var dyslektiker, som att mobbningen inte var ett tillräckligt stort bekymmer...
Jag blev aldrig godkänd i svenska grammatiken, varken under grundskolan eller gymnasiet.
Jag fick däremot beröm för mina arbeten!
En lärare t.o.m. hyllade mig inför klassen under årskurs 9 för hur jag ansträngde mig till skillnad från de som inte hade samma beskymmer.
Engelskan har alltid varit en kamp och jag blev hånad på gymnasiet över min Göteborgs-engelska, av det tjejgäng jag umgicks mest med.
Trots att jag saknar språköra och har svårigheter för att skriva så försöker jag att utmana mig.
Jag älskar att skriva och uttrycka mig i text.
Söker gärna efter nya synonymer, fina metaforer och inspiration från andra.
Jag läste t.o.m. grafisk och text kommunikation på distans en sommar bara för att jag kände för det!
Tillåt inte några betyg eller personer hindra dig från att göra det du drömmer om.
Klart det påverkar men det är inte det som avgör!
Ett av skälen till varför Håkan Hellström är min idol, är just för att han följde sin dröm om att få sjunga.
Många hånade honom, trodde inte på honom och nekade honom.
Och han lyckades ganska bra ändå eller hur?
Det räcker att någon tror på dig, att du är ödmjuk och öppensinnad så kommer du långt.
Om Håkan kunde göra karriär på att sjunga trots alla odds, varför skulle inte du eller jag kunna lyckas med det vi vill?

New job induction. Trying to stay calm. Remember the wise words of Will Smith in After Earth “Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice.”
There’s a story of a Korean Buddhist monk called Wonhyo who was traveling to China with a fellow monk where they hoped to study Buddhism further. Somewhere on the journey, the pair were caught in a heavy downpour and forced to take shelter in what they believed to be an earthen sanctuary. During the night, Wonhyo was overcome with thirst, and reaching around in the dark, was thrilled to discover a gourd, filled with cool, refreshing water. Upon waking the next morning, however, he was amazed to discover that their shelter was in fact an ancient tomb littered with human skulls, and the vessel from which Wonhyo had drunk was a human skull full of brackish water. Upon seeing this, the story goes that Wonhyo vomited and simultaneously achieved enlightenment because he saw so clearly in that moment the power of the human mind to shape one’s reality. That’s all just to say that training yourself to be able to shift your perspective, to see painful times as opportunities to deepen in wisdom and compassion, changes everything.
today: morning snuggles; walking slowly to the gym and surrendering to the slowness; jumping rope outside; the cool mornings; holding hands with my little guy; not having to rush to get ready; my belief in the ability of people to heal; hanging out with G watching O chase bubbles and play in the park; making it through TJ’s at rush hour; facetime with my dad to wish him happy bday and feeling so grateful for our relationship; kind neighbors to watch O during S’s concert; walking to the concert with E; S’s outstanding performance and all the kids trying so hard; my walk back alone; hearing about O’s night and being reminded that other parents struggle, too; making soup; watching GOT w/ E; my warm cozy bed.
Just a little note about class times. My bigger classes have all now finished for Christmas (it’s early I know but we need ample time to eat all the mince pies 🙌). My small home studio classes are running all the way up until Christmas Eve, so if you need a festive yoga fix it would be lovely to see you there.
All classes will starting back the week beginning the 7th Jan. I have a couple of new classes starting which I will post about on here, but please also look for me in your junk email folder as that’s where I tend to lurk.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Personally I love the Christmas build up of fairy lights, nights out and Mariah Carey on repeat, but I find the actual 3 days stuck indoors eating and trying not to murder people very claustrophobic. I know for many people (my family included) it’s a tough time of year and not always the season to be jolly, so if Christmas ain’t your thing please know you are not alone; I hear you and I know 🙏
See you on the mat for a twist and unravel in 2019 💫

In cases like Depression & Anxiety , Essential oils are now widely use as a complimentary or adjunct theraphy, along with
with conventional treatments, such as behavioral therapy and antidepressants.
The aromatic molecules present naturally in essential oils can cross the blood/brain barrier and have a direct impact on areas of the brain which control feelings of depression, anxiety and stress.
The nerve cells in the nose detect smell and trigger an impulse to conveys information about the smell to areas of the brain known as the limbic.
This makes Essential Oil incredibly powerful as the scents they exude can directly affect the limbic system and in turn our memory & emotional response, which is why they play an extremely important role in fighting depression.
Research has also shown that using Essential Oils may help to improve sleep, enhance mood, and improve a person's quality of life.
Anxiety No More :
Ylang Ylang Lavender Frankincense and Clary Sage.
Puras Essential Oil Blend
Some poetry to ease my chaotic mind. Sometimes, knowing that someone has written down things you feel during certain times is all you need to know you’re not alone and we aren’t the first. Late night read before I start driving. Having depression is no fun. I’m glad there’s been a recent increase in awareness on how devastating depression can be. Although I’m lucky to have family and friends who care for me, depression haunts me and invades my mind creating false emotions that overtake my reality. I wish I can escape my mind but sometimes that’s impossible for me. After everything I’ve dealt with and have gone through from a young age and even up to now, one would assume a person would be stronger but the truth is , yes we are stronger but depression gives 0 fucks and will erase all that for a moment and all I’m left with is barely enough strength to overcome a permanent solution I have in mind during my depressed state. Poetry has been a great form of peace in my life. Since I have these feelings I can’t put into words, I always hope that the authors of these books have exactly written down what I feel and it’s nice to see when I do run into a relevant poem. I guess I’m just saying that if you have something that can help you be at ease and keep yourself calm in a healthy way, please don’t let go of that. Meh I’m on all sorts of feels #rhsin #poetry #restinthemourning #latenight #reading #mentalhealth #depression
