A cup of tea

Yet another long day of work, the last issues handled from home. I'm so grateful for being able to combine my work with being a mother, and without giving up on my career goals. I know that isn't an option for many people, which makes me even more grateful. đŸ™đŸ»
I'm spending my night in the company of some candles and a hot cup of tea. Trying to relax and let go of all the tensions that builds up in the muscles in my back and neck after a long day. I'm going to contact my massage therapist and get help with loosing up some of the muscles in my back that's been bothering me for a while. If I leave it for too long it works it's way up in my neck and I don't want that happening! 
But for tonight I'm just planning on relaxing. Enjoying my tea and a date with my Kindle!

Exploring new cities

I'm traveling a lot this spring. In March I'm going to Hannover on a business trip and just e few days after arriving home I'm leaving for Budapest with my girlfriends! In April I hope to go to London with my sister and nieces and in may I'm going to Spain to celebrate my father in-law on his 70th birthday. 
I've never been to Hannover and Budapest before so tonight I spent an hour googling what to see and what not! And of course, I researched and read tons of comments about finding restaurants and cafes serving gluten free alternatives on their menus! And it looks like it's going to be a lot easier to find me some good gluten free food and bread there than it was in Vietnam! đŸ‘đŸ»
 
I love traveling, no surprise to you, and I'm really looking forward to my trips! I'm also going with my little family to Spain for a few weeks this summer and if I'm lucky I'll fly to New York in the fall. But that's to be decided later on, just wishful thinking right now. 😜

Now I'm off to bed. A long day awaits me tomorrow at work!

Bad blogger

I'm sorry friends, for not writing any blog entries for two whole days! And I don't have any good excuses to tell you. I just didn't feel up to it! 
 
Had this great weekend planned with two separate girlfriend dates on Saturday, but I woke up feeling a bit under the weather and had to cancel them (actually one of my dates cancelled on me first) both. So instead I decided to make this a lazy weekend and think I managed that quite well! 
 
I made some efforts though! Like dressing one very empty and white wall in the kitchen with some new pictures and a little shelf. I'm not done yet, but this will be your little sneak peak! 

Oh, and I'm almost watched through the entire first season of "Van Helsing" on Netflix. I hate series like that, making me feel constantly terrified, but for some weird reason I just can't help myself. I get stuck watching and I feel my body tense up (shaking) with that fear from the first second of every episode. Crazy! I'll feel so relieved when I'm done with season 1 so that I can stop watching it! 😜

Now I'm off to bed!

Leaving the past behind

The last couple of days I've been thinking a lot about how some of us get so sucked up in the past that we forget to look forward. Why do we let the events of the past get such a strong hold of our minds that we loose the ability to look away from it? This is a really interesting question and in some ways I can relate to being affected by my past, but the whole "loose sight of my future and dwelling in the past" thing has never been an issue for me. For some reason I've always found a way to refocus on the matter at hand, instead of staying stuck.

I've learned over the years to live and act in a world constantly changing, and I like that. You might even say I love it! I'm pretty sure I would get bored if I wasn't a part of that. And maybe it's that part of me, the one easily bored, that has kind of an issue understanding people who chooses to linger in the past rather than leaving it behind. To me it's so simple that I don't get why some choose to make it difficult?!

Something sad/hurtful/unexpected/challenging happens, something that affects you so much you feel absorbed by sadness/guilt/fear or whatever suffocating emotion you can think of! Whatever the feeling you get lost in it and you can only focus on the pain/fear. All you see are problems! Mountains to climb without the correct gear or oceans to swim without a life vest! You see the steep walls on the mountain and you fear loosing your footing and falling down a ravine, or the high and cold waves that will tear you under the surface of the sea and drown you. I get that! Dwell in that for a few seconds, we all do at times! It's ok! But then you take a deep breath and you carry on! You think of other mountains you've climbed or oceans you crossed way back! How did you manage that? What tools did that give you and how can you reuse them this time? 

You accept the situation and focus on the good things that will come from it ever happening in the first place! Ok, so this has happened and I'm sorry it did, but what can I learn from it and how can I bring everything good from it with me into the future? I will not let the darkness of it drag me down or under the ice! I am stronger than that! 

I get that some people doesn't think this is easy. I get that they're pulled down into a crippling state of mind. I just have to find a way to get them out of that, Making them believe in themselves and their ability to get through it! And accept that it sometimes is going to take them a whole lot more time than I would want it to. 
Do you find it hard? Or easy as I do?

Light in the tunnel

Finally! The first night since arriving home from Vietnam that I haven't fallen asleep after dinner! It's 21:36 and I'm still up, amazing! Hopefully that means I won't be waking up around 04:00 in the morning tomorrow! Fingers crossed!
 
So now that I can't complain about being tired then maybe I should complain about freezing my butt off? Because I am! Truly! I hate winter! I hate it dearly! Im not at all a winter kind of girl! I hate skiing, skating and every other winter sport or activity you could think of during winter. I'm just not ok with being cold! So why am I still living here, up in the north? Honestly? I'm not sure! And I could easily see my self moving somewhere warmer! 
 
To eliminate the freezing cold I bought and ate some sunshine earlier today. Sunshine in form of a pomelo. And let me tell you, it tasted just as it does when in Vietnam! Highly addictive! ❤

Now I'm off to bed!
Hope you have a great day too!

Getting it done

I had this great plan for my blog entry writing today. As I've been holding back (or rather giving in to sleep) when writing I decided today would be the day when I composed something really profound and even life changing! But, noooo! That won't be happening! Not today!
 
I'm still to tired to make that happen, to do it right. So instead I went into the bath and my bubbles! ❤

I'll have to wait on that profoundness to be written another day.

Jetlag

Kind of lost for words. To tired to think and form sentences! But, I'm back home and slept in my own bed last night. Love that feeling, when laying down in your own bed after weeks away from home. 
 
Had a kind of boring wait before leaving for the airport yesterday, but the shopping at Ho Chi Minh airport was even more boring! 😆

Now I'm off to continue on my resting on the couch!

Flying home

Today is our last day here in Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh city. We've been walking around discovering new sites today but mostly focusing on the shopping part. It's now about five hours left before the plane take off and we're relaxing in the executive lounge at our hotel after having checked out from our hotel room. 
 
They've just finished serving the afternoon tea and our tummies are full of fruit, sweets and pastries! 
 
I couldn't eat all of these though as they contain gluten, but the macaroon was tasty (despite the nasty green colour).
 
There was a lot of variations to choose from. These were just a few examples! 

Now we're chilling in our sofas in the lounge for the remaining hours before liftoff. My sister and niece is getting their nails done at the Spa and my brother in law is getting a massage while we enjoy our sweets. 
 
See you again when we land in Sweden. The flight time is estimated to 13,5 hours (Ho Chi Minh - Paris) and then an additional 2,5 hours from Paris to Stockholm, landing around lunchtime on Friday.
