Goeden morgen! 😊
It’s been almost a month since I moved to Eindhoven and I can’t believe the time is flying so fast. It’s not easy to move to a new country (luckily, it’s my third time so I’m kind of used to it), to learn a new language but, on the other hand, getting to know the new ways of life and discovering new places every day can be so rewarding and make you feel so great! Excitement and experiences, it’s what life is about anyway!
Have you ever lived in a foreign country? Can you tell me more about your experiences?
Have an amazing day, weekend is almost here! 💕
Skoro je mesec dana proslo otkako sam dosla u Ajndhoven i prosto ne mogu da verujem kako vreme brzo leti. Nije lako preseliti se u novu zemlju (srecom meni je ovo treci put pa mi to i nije tako strano), nauciti novi jezik, ali istovremeno je i neverovatan taj osecaj dok svaki dan otkrivate nova mesta i upoznajete drugaciji nacin zivota. Uostalom, zivot i cine nova iskustva i uzbudjenja.
Da li ste vi nekada ziveli u stranoj zemlji? Kakva su vasa iskustva?
Uzivajte u ovom danu a i predstojecem vikendu! 💕
✨Never Judge a book by it’s cover ✨Throwback Thursday...slightly embarrassing but I’m going with it...and I can honestly say that I am nowhere near where I want to be. However, for those of you who know my story...the photograph on the left is me 2 years after being left wheelchair bound, bed bound, on disability benefits...trying to adjust to my world being turned upside down. My spine, femur, pelvis, ankles, ribs completely broken. I had no idea I would ever walk again (as doctors repeatedly told me)...let alone weight train. All I know is that I am truly blessed...every damn day I get to train I am grateful. I don’t compete..because I think my poor body has been through enough. I simply train for the love of having the choice & ability to! It’s great to have the feeling of strength, when you felt weak for so long! 👊🏾💪🏽😌 #throwbackthursday#strongwomen#myjourney#myfitnessjourney#girlswholift#trainhard#fitnessmotivation#bodybuildingmotivation#weighttraining#transformation#determined
It's raining it's pouring the old man is snoring. Well there's no old man here, but you get it.
I had lunch with the bestie today, which was lovely, now I'm nannying. We were playing with my Tombow Fudenosuke brush pens earlier which was fun. #8pmselfie

This is also an idiot who shouldn’t be allowed to utilise the self timer function 😂, swipe right. -
I’m not American, but in light of Thanksgiving and the importance of being grateful and thankful everyday I wanted to say thanks. This past few months have been up and down and if it wasn’t for all of you I wouldn’t know where I’d be. Thank you for supporting me regardless of anything, for being there when I’ve needed it most and for just being down right superstars. I’m the luckiest human (🦄) on this planet to have the most amazing people in my life. -
Today, and everyday, thank you! I am grateful for you and I appreciate you more than the amount of adjectives I’m able to string together ❤️
Trust the Univers – It has your back 🌟
Nogen vil måske kalde det at bede, andre vil sige, at det bare er rent held, og andre igen vil sige, at det er tilfældighederne, der er på spil.
Personligt tror jeg ikke på held i den forstand. Jeg føler mig ofte heldig, men det er noget andet.
Jeg tror derimod på, at alt hvad vi sender ud, kommer retur til os igen. At den hverdag vi har i dag er et aftryk af de frø, vi såede tidligere. Jeg tror på, at når vi overgiver os og beder til Universet, Englene, guidene, Gud eller hvem vi nu hver i sær søger hjælp og guidens fra – så bliver vi også hørt 🙏🏻 Det er ikke lige altid i den udgave, vi bad om, men vi bliver HØRT.
For godt et år siden var jeg meget syg. Jeg magtede absolut ingenting. Alene det at gå i bad, var en stor ting, som for det meste kun skete en gang i ugen, da jeg simpelthen ikke magtede det 🙁 Jeg har altid haft rigtig mange bolde i luften og har været vandt til at stå op, gå i bad og gøre klar til job, tage af sted, komme sent hjem, træne, spise sundt mm. Og lige pludselig kunne jeg intet af delene. Det var så surrealistisk en oplevelse, at min krop bare sagde stop, og der var intet jeg kunne gøre.
Hvad jeg dog alligevel trofast gjorde hver aften inden jeg lagde mig til at sove var, at bede til alle dem jeg overhovedet kunne komme i tanke om. Vi taler Gud, Ærkeenglene, guide, spiret aminals, the Univers, Great Creator…. Og jeg kunne blive ved. Jeg bad om rigtig mange ting, men de 3 ting af dem alle, der altid gik igen, var: - Lad mig blive rask, så jeg kan få et velfungerende liv igen.
- Lad mig tabe de overskydende kg, så jeg kommer tilbage til den krop, jeg føler mig tilpas i. (Jeg var sågar meget specifik omkring den præcise vægt, jeg ønskede at veje)
- Lad mig flytte til et meget varmt sted, hvor jeg er taget af, ikke skal tænke på det økonomiske og kan gøre de ting jeg elsker – yoga, skrive på min bog, nyde natur og meget andet.
I dag har jeg manifisteret alle de ovenstående 💖
Sigh, this is a big one for me. ❤️ I am grateful for all the lessons I've learned in life, these past few years though I came across my biggest one yet. Letting go. Of the past, people, things, beliefs, patterns, habits, expectations, attachments, resentments...when I say shit just took off, it happened so fast I had no other choice but to surrender, give up control, trust and have faith. Letting go forced me to hold on to myself, to get to know myself, to learn how to love myself...unconditionally, entirely, and first. Letting go showed me how to nurture and give myself the love that I gave others, the understanding, the compassion, the forgiveness. I got real real with myself...blunt, direct, and honest...I was so done with sugarcoating or hiding the truth from myself and others. Fear of the unknown hurts us, keeps us small, limited. Never had I ever been my own mother, father, brother, sister, best friend...whatever role I needed for myself at that time, I became that for me. Sounds weird? Who knows us like we do? Who can love us like we do? Who can know our heart, mind, body, soul like we do? Why would we be everything for someone else but not for ourselves? People, places, things are extensions of us, a reflection of us, we overflow onto them. Everything and everyone you need is already there, let go and see what remains...all of it, all of them are here for us, to help us, teach us, be there for us, journey with us, love us, whatever we need so learn how to receive what is yours, regardless of what it looks like. Everything and everyone that left/leaves are lessons learned. We hurt ourselves by holding on and we hurt other people too. I share my journey because I wish someone would've told me that I didn't have to suffer for as long as I did. If my experiences can help ONE person get through a tough moment then I've done what I came here to do. We all deserve this, we all deserve to be happy, and to be loved, and to be somewhere we're appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving to all, may life continue blessing us with each other. #thanksgivingfeels#grateful#heartisfull#myjourney#wereinthistogether#love#souloversurface
