Here we are now…

Such a lovely place, tiny alleys with stone houses in different colors though most are white. We have landed both physical and emotional.

We have wandered the streets of Vilaflor upwards and downwards a countless of times already in five days. It’s a village with all you could want for a vacation.

If you are interested in living here then you need to get used to no credit cards, no stress and dogs running around the streets like cats do in sweden.

When you are a swede like we are it’s a bit hard to get used to the standards and the way it’s done down here, but we are willing to learn and approach things with as open minds as we can.

Things started out a bit different than we planned, a flue hit Daniel on Tuesday and as I write this i feel it in my throat.

Today we took the bus to Los Cristianos to get some things needed for me to be able to work. And the most important thing, I got to swim in the ocean. Me and Pelle bathed but Daniel isn’t that keen of a dip as we are.

We were supposed to get down to cristianos early morning but when we had waited for the bus in thirty minutes we gave up and went back to the apartment, later I found out our phones switched back from Canary time zone to Sweden’s… It’s one hour ahead, so instead of waiting for the bus at six thirty we where waiting at it at five thirty.

I think the universe try to tell me to losen up a little bit, control is just an illusion, I know! Promise myself a bit more relaxation, deeper breathing, and laughter. Less stress, tension and worry and I’ll be just fine.

Tomorrow we’ll explore more of these beautiful surroundings.

Take care!

Count down

Friday and packing day, not that easy to know what items to pack and not. Probably we’ll use a lot less then we think, I start to get a bit nervous.

We have finally done the final touches on the boat and she’s now ready for the winter.

We are now located in my parents caravan outside of my sisters home, enjoying the last days with family and friends.

Tomorrow we’ll meet up with Daniel’s family and celebrate his nephew turning 6 years old. A great way to say goodbye and so long before we leave.

Sunday will probably be a lot of nerves on my part, since neither of us have flown before it feels a bit scary. But “what goes up must come down”, as you say. We’ll be just fine and this is our great adventure. We will enjoy the final day with some friends and hopefully get some sleep before we go.

Now my sister and I will enjoy some movies about Tenerife on YouTube.

Wish you a good weekend 😃

Into the blue once again

Spent a great weekend at the lake in our beloved Amie, aka sailboat and home with new found friends.

Home at the marina after three absolutely wonderful days at thenlake Vänern, felt soo good to leave the marina and heading out. We went not that far away, but far enough to feel the freedom of air and water.

We just met two absolutely amazing people Hanna and Michael, so happy and joyful spreading the love of life to everyone. I’m so grateful to have met these two guys and looking forward to spend some more time with them.

I feel like I’m so lucky to be alive and to meet all the great people that I have in my life. The more secure and loving. I become towards myself, the more loving and positive people I have met with, I thank the law of attraction for all this.

All the hard work with rhe boat has finally paid off with some bliz full days and I welcome more of them in to my life.

Now it’s time to get into bed and catch some sleep before the new week begins.

Wish you all the best and remember to acknowledge all the good things in life.

Characteristic theme of life

Ten years from now I will look back at my life and make a part time summation, I wish my future self to be at ease, filled with joy and pride when doing so. 

I wish myself that kind of feeling like when you want to tap yourself at the back and say “good job, I’m proud of you!” or “way to go girl! Now, let’s keep on rolling 42 more”

I sat with my feet soaked in my son’s bathtub, getting some nice soft skin after the winter with lots of coconut oil. I started to sum up the past ten years, then I was in my early 20’s and had just ended a four year long relationship and had moved back home with my parents for a short time. I was Working part-time as a cleaner and didn’t know what to do with my life. 

Even though I didn’t have a clue about the future I can remember the faith I had even then, not that strong and with the same deep centered feeling I experience today but it was there. I knew I was going to be all right, but how? 

If I got to meet that girl today I would tell her… 

You will soon meet that special someone, who will make you feel complete as well as you want to rip his head of in fury… You will live on a farm with horses, cats and chickens for a while and meet friends for life during this time, you will meet people that will teach you lessons that will strengthen you for further more challenging situations, like a crazy landlord hiding in the darkness of the stable… 

You will live in the city, and realize it’s not your “cup of tea” after almost ruined the relationship with the chosen one… Attending a class in cheese-making 600 kilometers away from home, making friends that will give the reinkarnation theory a whole new meaning. When you get back home you will proceed with starting your own handcrafted cheese production business as the only one from the class, all this and at the same time moving in to a caravan…

You will fail in this business after some struggling years, after letting some abusive people be trusted in to your life, only to feel the gratitude of lessons learned. Expensive experiences but yet so very improving, selfworth is a hard thing to get for some people, almost every person I think. 

 To your own and some old friends surprise, you will be engaged and have a small wedding in the back yard of your brother’s house, barefoot with rose hip flowers in your hair. And you will be a mum, to the most beautiful and unique little boy. You will have so much love in your life, people will come and go but they all will contribute with some special moments, meaning or/and lessons to your life. 

I am so greatful and happy to be alive and to have lived the life I have, and I want to thank everyone of you who’s been a part of it. Even the smallest tiniest bit, thank you! 

I know that I haven’t lived a life of mediocrity up til now and I will not start to do it from now either, I trust in the universe and I have faith in the inner voice that’s guided me up to this point, to guide me further on. I’m ready to start out on this adventure with my family and I approve of myself to have all my needs provided and fulfilled. 

Today is a good day, my feet are smooth and I have my loving family with me. 

Thank you for reading this and have a lovely week!

Follow the signs be brave and trust life

A song about tearing down windmills and Don Quijote in the playlist on the computer and a week later I was strolling in one of the parks in the neighboring city, never have I noticed the two windmills standing there. One for the child’s play and the other like a monument from the past. 

It gave me goose bums, either my awareness of these little signs are higher than before (possible) or I attract more signs from the universe for me to be shown that I am exactly at the right place right here right now? I believe both to be true.

Anyway, we made up our minds and decided to cancel our rental agreement on the apartment, as I mentioned in the last post. WE DID IT, so from the end of May we will live on the boat. Feels amazing, totally frightening and like we are throwing ourselves out there for life to take us wherever we beed to be next.

So goodbye comfort and hello compact living, it is going to be a challenge but what doesn’t kill you makes you stonger. We will be just fine and we will learn so much from this. And the signs tells me we are doing the right thing, all small hints are pointing us in this direction.

So we are in a bot of a hurry to get all things together with the move, right now our boat is covered on land but we will start to work to get her ready for the season. And we have a home to be minimized and to sell, give away and throw all the stuff we don’t need.

This is where I put myself to the test of letting go, it is hard with some things and so easily done with others, I let it feel awkward and I look at the feeling and ask “is this important, and for what reason do gI hold on to this particular thing?” often it turns out to be for sentimental or conditioning reasons, not so often because I really want to keep it. And if I really want to keep it then it stays.

I have been wondering about my entrepreneurship lately and I am curious to become a content provider, (for those who wonder what that is this sums it up good below)I think it would suit me good, besides from blogging and affiliate marketing business I could help people write content on their blogs, social media and even translate texts. I will definitely look into it and learn more. Please, if you have any ideas where to learn more let me know in the comments or send me an email or message on Facebook.

 Today we have had 64.4 degrees fahrenheit /18 degrees celcius, not a single cloud in the sky and the winds where not freezing for the first time this year. Spring have finally come to the northern hemisphere, and it is most welcome!

Hope you all will have a wonderful, prosperous and sunny week!

Love to you all!
