Needless to say

I'm having one of those days. Not on top, not on the bottom. Somewhere in between. Smiling through it, but weakly. Almost like a faint wind brushing by, making itself known but leaving too fast to be memorable. That kind of a smile! 
I've been reading up about the Oscars yesterday, and needless to say, I feel sorry for everyone effected by that little mishap that unfortunately made some people hurt and disappointed. Awkward yes, but! It was just a mistake! No need to hang anyone for it! No one died or got physically hurt. At that specific time and place; they were not at war and there was no natural disaster threatening. They were not starving (well maybe some ladies were to get into their dresses 🙊). They were all there to have a great time and to celebrate the wonderful crafts of movies and acting! It was just a little slip up with the envelopes. Unfortunate, yes, but not the end of the world! Let's move on please!

 There are a lot worse stuff going on in the world that needs our attention, like climate change and global warming! Or the war in Syria and the refugees desperately needing aid! Or all the crazy things happening in the US after the election, mostly deriving from the newly elected president who's whole agenda seems to be about separating/alienating/excluding people. And destroying the world!

Reloaded batteries

It's Sunday and the end of a fun week and even more fun weekend. The batteries are reloaded and I'm ready for next week! 
 
It's been a long day driving today, as my in laws lives quite far from us, and the weather was not the best! But, it went ok and mini me was great, she almost didn't complain at all! 😜


I ended this week by sending of one of my writing projects to a book editor to get her feedback and hopefully thoughts of how I can improve as a writer. Can't wait to hear from her, but I have to admit I'm a bit nervous (scared) too. But, I'll stay positive and hope for the best, that this is a big step forward to reaching my dream!

How was your weekend?

The long drive

This morning we left Örebro to drive further south, the destination being my in laws mountain house. I've told you before about this mesa (or "table" if you prefer) mountain and the beautiful surroundings in which they live, my in laws. This time of year though, everything being freezing cold and grayish outside, the beauty of this mountain is not as easily detected as in spring or summertime. Nevertheless, here we are, enjoying our stay at my amazing in laws. Mini me has been here since yesterday and she loves coming here. Her grandparents has given her a sheep 🐑 that she named Charlie when she was a little lamb less than two years ago. She's still super friendly and loves to cuddle although being a big girl/sheep now. So mini me spent some time today with her, feeding her and cuddling with her. Me on the other hand, enjoyed quiet time on the couch under a blanket, reading. 
Tomorrow we're leaving to go back home, a four hour drive. But, as it's been snowing all evening maybe the drive home will take us longer than usual tomorrow. The traffic could be bad if the snow falls continues on all through the night. We'll see. Now I'm off to bed, reading until I fall asleep.

Weekend trip

I got a weekend trip, without child, as a Valentine's Day gift from my husband. So here I am, in Örebro, like 200 km from Uppsala. We're staying at a very nice hotel, Elite Stora Hotellet, Örebro, and got our room upgraded to a suite on arrival. đŸ™ŒđŸ»
And we're enjoying our night off from "family" life. I even had a strawberry mojito before dinner! Crazy, right! 😂

After dinner we went to the movies and saw "The Great Wall" with Matt Damon. In parts it was really grandeur, but then in other parts it was just not. Would I recommend you to see it? Well, yes, but not without telling you to focus on enjoying the grandeur enough that you can see past the other, not so grand, parts! 

Now I'm off to bed. No staying up late for this old lady! 😆

Pampering myself

I've been spending my early evening at my hairdressers, pampering myself. I love going to my hairdresser, she's the best! Always cheerful and making my hair look beautiful as I leave! And she's the best at giving scalp massages! Amazing! I would be willing to pay her just to get her massage! 😜

It takes about 2-3 hours to get my hair done and I enjoy every minute of it. My hairdresser is also the best listener and she tells the best stories, making the visit worth while just for the chatt! If you need a hairdresser in Uppsala, leave a comment and I'll give you her contact info! đŸ‘đŸ»
 
But I look like a clown while at it! 😂

Now I'm curled up in bed, and ready for some reading. And Snapchat obviously! 😆

In thoughts

I'm spending my evening, my alone time, lost in thoughts. I love silence and I love spending time all alone. Turning of everything but my thoughts, and I let them run wild. Listening to nothing. And hopefully hearing it all. 

Some fear silence and being alone, and I can't help to feel sorry for them. My most important decision and at times even life altering discoveries (about myself, others or the world), are all made in that perfect place! When I'm all alone, vulnerable and open and susceptible for whatever coming my way!
 
Tonight has been such a night and I finally listened to that voice inside of me that's been trying really hard to get my attention for a long, long time. Sometimes it's just easier and less hurtful not to listen. But I did listen. Tonight. I pondered the alternatives, weighing the positives against the negatives and tried to reason with myself. I'm not completely sure yet that I'm doing the right thing, but the future will tell. And before everyone (read; mummy 😉) starts to worry after reading this blog entry, let me say this! Although the text might imply that this is a huge decision with great impact on my life, it is not. This is a small, insignificant decision that only effects me! Me, myself and I. Nothing to worry over, like at all!

Now I'm off to bed, early but the sleep is well needed!

Release

Yesterday I got a new colleague at work! And this is super great because of at least three reasons (probably a lot more, but for now I'll just point out these ones)!
1, It's an old colleague and friend of mine from way back when who's decided to apply to a position as manager for our department of business support. Always fun to get reconnected with great people at work! 
2, It's a great addition to our management team!
3, It's a huge relief regarding my workload as I've been stepping in and handling both my department and the department that she's now taking over. 
 
So tonight I feel like I've lost like a ton of weight of my shoulders, and finally I'll have more time handling ongoing issues in my on department without having to divide my time with another! And don't get me wrong! I've really loved to help out and manage the other department! The employees are great and super fun to work with! Ive just had too much to do, and it had started to take its toll. I've been feeling stressed and super tired the last week as my workdays has been way too long ever since I got back from my vacation in the beginning of January.

So today I'm smiling and feeling lighter then I've done in a long time! I feel more then ready to go back to my regular workload and responsibilities without any distractions! And I'll be sure to spend some time this week to document all the important lessons I've learned during these two months! It's been fun! Hard, but fun! I'm proud that I made it through and all along felt like I gave it my best! 

Now I'm off to bed! Tomorrow is a new day full of possibilities and I'll meet them all with a smile!

Consistency

Tired. Nothing to write. Nothing to say. I'll get back to you all tomorrow instead! Might disappoint one or two, but I'll make it up to you. Promise!

Attention seekers

I don't mind being in the centre of ones attention, in fact I might just crave it at times. We all see people having different outlets for this craving, and I've been trying to find my own. Or maybe just being able to identify why and when the need of attention is the strongest. I'm not sure I've found it just yet, but I do have different outlets identified. Like this blog, or all my social media accounts really. 
 
I grew up in a family of strong people but I also spent ten of those years surrounded by a man constantly telling me I wasn't good enough, that I would never achieve anything in life, that I was fat and even being told I wasn't smart enough but rather stupid. Making me feel excluded from all those strong individuals in my family. Few people know of this, and I've been hiding it for a long, long time. Fighting to be all those things he told me I would never be or just proving him wrong. It has been a struggle and the crave for attention is probably all based on a need for the highs of feeling good enough or even great about whom I've become. In spite of him. If only for a second or two. Or an eternity. Those highs are like my own personal favourite choice of drug. 

As much as I crave attention I do like to give away my own. I like acknowledging those in need of it, just as I do myself. Telling them whatever they need to hear, making them feel what they need to feel, or just showing them I appreciate them. And I do it because I care, because I want to and because I know how important it is for your inner peace and happiness. Because I know the highs they're seeking! To me it's not a bad thing, needing it or giving it! It is, however, a truly bad thing when you give and give, without receiving it back. At least to me. It's like a scale constantly needing to be levelled! If it falters, so do I. It completely drains me. And it bores me. But most of all, it makes me feel less important.

I'm not high maintenance, and I do not demand people to act in a special or specific way around me. I do not expect attention from everyone at any time. That is not how I work, or how my needs for attention works. I'm just as everyone else, an ordinary and quite simple woman (I think, not knowing all women). I'm talking about specific times and specific people and I know they know who they are. So this blog entry is not to be regarded as a way of making people feel they need to act differently towards me, this is just me trying to explain why I'm active on social media and why I seek attention! And why I like it.

No surprises

I've been working on the editing part of my latest writing project tonight, just as I did yesterday, and I'm so tired. Not because of the editing part, but because I slept awfully bad last night (fell asleep on the couch). And now I'm fighting to stay awake for the second day in a row.!
 
I guess going to bed would solve that problem though!
