Little things

Modern slave

We grow up in social media, searching for likes and comments. Most days fly by, time is running. Searching for followers, telling ourself we’re not alone.

Don’t you know by now, we’ve grown up listening to lies. No like or comment will follow you, cause we live to die.

We learn how to make a living, but not how to live. Run for your life till you find life, and start living again.

First autumn day

I’ve been looking at this blank space for a while now. It’s been empty the last couple of weeks – and it’s been empty in my head too. I don’t know how to fill this space. I don’t know how to start even though I’m aching to write again. I want to be an inspiration, share my thoughts and mind with you again.


It’s September 1st, summer is officially over, even the weather can agree on that. It’s windy, it’s cold and rainy. What I have learned is that time is always moving. We cannot stop it even though we want to capture a moment and stay in it. That is why you have to live in the moment. Don’t let it pass you, don’t feel the need to document or capture every other second on a picture. Sometimes it’s better to live and let go.

Highlights of 2014

Oh, wow.. 2014.

What a year. How time flies by. I found an old post from 2013 where I wrote my new years resolutions and they sounded something like this:

  • Be the best version of myself
  • Trust my life with God
  • Find love

Lets take a trip down memory land and look at what has happened the last year. Maybe some of my new years resolutions came true..

The year 2014

Berlin – I started my year in Berlin. Correctly, flying from America to Paris and then Berlin. Spending my last days off with shopping and eating good food before heading back home for work.

The love of my life – I told myself that I would find the love of my life again, that the one who broke my heart would be gone and forgotten at the end of 2014. April the 13th that plan went down with all my morals. I knew I was still in love with him but I was trying so hard to forget him and all our memories. And meeting him that night just made us make more memories. I can´t regret opening my heart to him again because I fell in love with him more then I ever thought was possible. My first and only love of my life.

Wedding – Not my real wedding but I had the pleasure of having on two amazing wedding dresses and getting my bridal hair done and walking on a catwalk to promote a bridal store and the salon I work at. A stressful, nerve-racking and fun day!

Miley Cyrus concert – The first ´real` concert I went to was the Bangerz concert the 28th of April. With three of my close friends we made our way to the concert starting of by waiting in line for an hour or two and drowning as many beers as possible before the police would catch us. A fun & crazy concert, just like Miley.

Best friends good bye – 13th of July I had to say good bye to my best friend. She was on her way to explore the world, or at least Spain the coming year working as an au pair. There is nothing beautiful about good byes and I could only look forward to the day where I got to see her again.

Summer vacation – I worked the entire summer and had a well deserved vacation at the end of August. My mum and I flew to Germany to stay with my Oma for a week, and then we made our way to Italy. After a good week there we drove back to Germany for another three days before we took the flight home again. A fun and different holiday, seeing lots of new places and having one last good memory with my Oma.

Losing Oma – On Monday the 27th of October I was in my car when I got a text message from my mum. That weekend I knew it was getting worse for Oma and on Monday morning she passed away quietly and peacefully in her bed while sleeping. She was such an amazing and inspiring person and I wish I had more time to spend with her.


This year has had it´s ups and downs. It wasn’t a great year but neither a bad one. I have learned, loved and lost. Trying to figure out my life and who I want to be, and I strongly believe that 2015 is going to be that wonderful year where I do all of that. I´ll figure out who I am and what road my life will take.

Even if I love and lose again, I will have learned.

The life we live

I’ve waited so long for the days to turn longer, the leaves on the trees to turn green and the weather warm. Now I’ve got it all and trying so hard to enjoy the longer days, the green trees and the warm breeze. But I can’t help but to think that all that I’ve got now is going to fade and I’m lost standing left with short days, dying trees and cold winds.

Days turn into night and darkness into light. We fade away to the emptiness and stay till we’re next to nothing again.

The days turn shorter and the nights longer. We don’t change because we know something better is coming. The comfort is straining us, killing us one by one. We forget how to live and think we’ll die in peace. As if we’ve done everything our life has set up to offer us. At the times of need we looked away and didn’t take a chance.

Now we’re next to nothing and our lives have gone by without us blinking twice. We regret and wish we could turn it all back. To start over and take the chances we got when they knocked at our door. We lie our heads to rest every night wishing we could go back but in the end we go to sleep and remember that this was all just a dream.
