Winter skin – ageing

My skin has kind of given up. It seems like no moisturizer in the world can deal with my skin right now. Unfortunately I live we’re the sun barely raise during the winter months and even if we do get moist weather “wet and damp” it is no good for my poor skin.

I become extra dry with itchy red spots all over. It is like I am constantly allergic to everything. I definitely fells more at ease during the summer. I believe the vitamin D together with the sun gives the skin all it needs

So how can we deal with the issues? Well going from nice perfumed body lotions to pure jojoba oil. No need to buy the expensive perfume body lotion when all my body is longing for is oil.

Pure oil in such a natural form as possible is what it craves. Even though my skin is really itchy and dry, I still exfoliating almost on a daily base. I exfoliate in the shower and make sure I put on oil straight after the shower when my skin is still damp.

I can see that my skin is not as plump and moist as it use to be, and I need to nurture it in a different way these days. Inside out.

Over all, I need to take care of me in a different way nowadays. Give my self some needed TLC !

What is your skin secret?

Adding years to a better you

Are you healthy or not? Do you care or really not? Are you in the game or hopelessly lost? Are you making sure you get the best there is for your body and soul?

Taking care of yourself is the best gift you can ever give yourself. Not only caring about your health but also your mind. Filling it with good thoughts and happy memories. Trigger it with challenges and changes. Give it love every day.

But we all know that life is not always pink and fluffy, it’s sometimes dark or at least grayish. That’s why it’s even more important to overfill yourself with good vibes those days your life feels extra good.

Try at least try to make the best out of every day. If that means sitting around doing absolutely nothing then that is what you should do.

Life passes quickly, fill it with good positive people, educate yourself everyday. Share knowledge to others, be friendly, be curious. Spoil your body and mind every day.

I promise it will add years to your life.

What is your whisper? as a woman?

As a modern woman, I enjoy becoming older in many ways, most because I see a clear difference in the way women are able to bloom the way they are suppose to. I strongly believe that we all have a cal,l a purpose, a meaning. You might not know what it is, but sooner or later you will find that inner whisper.

The best part of growing older is that you are more in tune with your self. You have been through hardships and pains, happy places as well as sad. These hardships have shaped you to the person you are today. It can be good and of course bad. But you and only you have the power to change if you want to. Is it your time now to become who you want to become. Listen in to that voice to that inner whisper, what is it telling you?

I have had the privilege to be surrounded by some strong women, but also some that that are a bit lost. I was also a bit lost, I think we all are from time to time, it all comes down to believing in yourself and trusting that inner whisper. Looking at my daughters I feel so proud, they are so strong and smart and fully aware of their capabilities, as many of the young woman out there today. We can thank older women who has walk the path before us, who has struggled and won, who have raised strong and warm sons and daughters who are today the parent of these strong daughters and also sons.

So all you out there, take time to listen in to your inner voice. The world need your service in one way or another, regardless of what your surrounding tells you.

Summer days blues 👉🏻 new beginnings

Well one more summer is coming to its end. Every summer is the same, looking forward to the fall and new possibilities , but not the end of the long beautiful summer nights.. It marks the end of one school year, so in many ways a new beginning.

We are lucky enough to be able to spend a good part of the summer in summer houses down south. I have been able to work from there so I have been quite busy all summer when the rest of the family have been off.

This summer have felt a bit sad in many ways and I wonder what makes it feel this way? A part of growing older, not really being where I want to be in life, and yet see another summer pass. And aslo to the fact that I am not to happy about the cold and dark upcoming season. And I am also going in to my next part in my life 👉🏻menopause. No symptoms other than a skipped period and som molding and feeling bloated

I am truly happy about menopause as it makes me a stronger and more confident, but it will rob me of my youth as it will mark an end of my fertile days. But hey this also marks a new beginning of an older happier me who is looking forward entering a new beginning. I hope you all hade a great summer.

Being a feminine woman regardless

Women are so beautiful, strong, mysterious. We are mothers, carry life and are just fantastic. We should always embrace that! Meaning we should be feminine regardless what. We should be proud of what we have, and what we are and most of all show it.

Many women, believe they must become more manly to receive the respect they deserve, and that might be the case, but why is that? And why do we allow it? You do not need to become more manly just to earn respect. If anything be more feminine!

Own the floor as a pure woman, with all your feminine attributes – be humble, friendly but strong! Show compassion yet let them understand your goal and ambitions regardless of anything.

Be a proud woman! There is nothing more attractive and sensual then a feminine powerful woman

Middle age – how should we relate to it?

We women are such powerful beings, I think we underestimate how fantastic we are. We give life, carry life and goes through hormone changes through out our life, if it would happened to a man, it would break him down and probably be consider as an illness.

We of us who has given birth knows what it takes to give life. From morning sickness to pouching out a new human being and all the issues that comes after with breastfeeding and complications with your private parts and depression. Let´s face it, your life, body and mind will never be the same. Still we are assumed to go through it and bump back to life as nothing have happened.

So if you have reached the age were childbirth is no longer an topic as well as small children you have probably entered middle age. Hopefully you are at peace with were you are at and feel comfy in your skin. But if you are like many of us, you have had sort of a wake up, where you might have released you are a bit lost. Who am I, where am I heading?

The good part of reaching middle age is that you usually have more alone time on your hands. Time that you should embrace and love. This is when you have the time to rediscover yourself. You might end up wanting to change completely, trade of your spouse, change your career, change your friend and more.

Men usually goes through a fear of death, all of a sudden they reach an age were they understand that they are actually going to die one day and need to live to the fullest while they can. They might go from coach potatoes to Iron man champions. Some might search the attention from much younger women – just to get an approval that they are still in the game..

Whatever you are going through – embrace it. This is life changing for the better. You have done a great journey so far. You have learned hopefully a lot and have becoming a stronger more confident. Crises or not, I think of it as a turning point, a sort of awakening to get you moving. This is the time to restart yourself. Love it, and give it time. Do something for you! this is your time to rediscover your self again – enjoy it.

Remember you are the master of your ship.

Becoming you

Yes, i know its a worn out topic these days- but it is so important, I can not stress this enough. I find it sad to see so many women totally lost in a made up world. Picture perfect on the outside but totally empty on the inside.

I see these women, living up to the standard, I do to, to a certain extent, I care about my health, looks but with that said- I also care about my soul, and who I am. 
I was lost for many years, lost in a fake persona – who I thought I wanted to become. I was striving towards what society made up to be a norm for success, not understanding my own value, or what I can actually bring to the table. 
It took years to where I am today, and I am still learning, exploring and developing each and every day.
Undertand the importance in self-development and always strive to become the best version of you, without being guilty. We women much more then men work from our emotions. Always consulting and considering others before we make our decision. 
We like to feel that we have a our backs covered, it makes us feel more secure, but is it really? If you always need to have someone else take the lead in your decisions? I´m not saying that it is wrong to consult in others now and then, just make sure that the final decision comes from you.

Because, you can hide for a while, but soon enough it will start eating you alive. And most certain it will either make you sick or make you depressed. So you have the choice, make a good one.

You are here for a reason, live up to that, it´s your path-walk it!

Reflect over who you are.
Walk your path
