Dare to work hard..

I had a very deep discussion with some of my girls the other day.. I am a woman like them, and like women sometimes tend to be; also sensitive and fragile. But despite this we are strong. Because of this we are strong. Use your character, and build your empire with* it. Together with who you are. That is powerful women to me. Not to be anything else than what they are. Without compromise.

The truth is, nothing is easy, but yet we tell ourselves that things aught to come to us without hard work. Without headache, or broken bones… Why do I hear this all the time from people around me? Why do I hear this from the ghosts in my head?

In fighting we tend to get better each time we fall, in skiing we have to fall in order to get alot better.. In fact.. we fall, knowing it is THE WAY to get better.  In the gym is is the exercise we do to exhaustion that makes us feel something! And get stronger. Break down and build up, break down and build up. Like a wise man once said; It ant about how hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and still get back up moving forward.

Why does the mind not cinsider this in other spectras if life ? We expect no boundaries, hard work blood or tears…

 

 

 

 

Success is not managing only what you already can do .  It is pushing yourself to that point you barely manage what you think you cannot do. To do more, to achieve more, to fight harder and work till you fingers bleed. That is how you gain results, that is how you repsect, from others but most importantly to yourself. You gotta do what you gotta do, and in the end.. to be truly realistic here.. Its all about making a choice. Life and reaching where you want to go is marely a decision.

I expect hard work. I expect to bleed till my knees bend. ( Somehow just because this is something I take for granted wothout complaining about it, people seem to believe my results in everything I do, come for free. It. does. not. ) I am a fighter, and I always push myslef to do a little more than expected, to give a little more than given and to proceed both mine and others expectations of me. I am scared, but bravery, is about doing it anyway.

Dream your life, life your dream. If you want to be someone capable of living your life completely on your own terms.. al you gotta to, is do it.

Beauty and endless (im)perfection

Today, women are bombarded with messages about unrealistic standards of beauty.  The quest for perfection has backfired.

You know I have said this before.

 

It does not contribute positively to women’s lives. Right now, more than eight out of ten Nordic women feel uncomfortable with their own body. And the majority find themselves doubting their own potential and worth, because they can’t live up to an unattainable beauty ideal.

This has a negative impact on the lives of many women and in the worst scenarios exercise turns into an obsession, enjoying food becomes impossible and choosing the right outfit is a nightmare. Reality is that women come in many shapes and sizes. And that’s a relief. Because the world would be so boring if we all looked alike. I believe that daring to stand out from the crowd and being our own colorful self is the way forward.

I want women to liberate themselves from unreasonable expectations to beauty, exercise and appearance.

Because no matter the size of your thighs or the width of your waist, the distance you run or your diet, I believe that you are best fit to pursue your goals and live your life. Celebrate your own goals and what you accomplish. Celebrate your friends and family. Celebrate your body. Celebrate your mind. Celebrate YOURSELF. ♥

Don’t only look at the abvious, see the details

Hi!

This weekend we had a lot of interesting discussions. My mind was twisting, like it should with different views and perspective of each others surroudnings.. I had alot of interesting discussions at @ptdistans, where our views on the subject focus came to differ. Being wide open in order to close stable again, without excluding the potential for growth. As in life, things fall apart in order to fall back toghether. We believe and see alot, and tend to focus on the big parts only, the main things that capture our attention. But what if we started to listen to those small details.. and tiny ends of where all big things begin.. ? The entire chain of why things are the way they are start to fall together. If, if we start to see where the start of the entire movement in our living truly lies.  A small inch of a movement in the righ direction, can cause a after effect of a tremendous meaning.  Dont only look at the obvoius. Look for the smal details that creates the why* it is so.
