The loving first step..

I’m not the best blogger in the world, as I find myself to busy most of the time to just sit, relax and let my thoughts flow. Right now both husband and baby is in bed, so I am making the most of this serene morning.

At the moment all I seem to think about is following dreams. My dreams. I think about what makes a dream reality and what steps to take to put them into action.
I think for many of us it’s the fear of failure that keeps us from reaching our true potential.I am a true believer in the fact that we have all been created on purpose and with a purpose. And life is about finding it and going for it – all the way!

Eleanor Roosevelt once said;  “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent“.
Then why do we let them, I ask myself…? I think it’s because without risk, we’re always going to be safe. Nothing won, nothing lost. But are we going to be happy?
I was telling my husband last night that I don’t want to grow old and regret not having pursued my passions, my dreams.

There are a four things that makes me feel Alive and inspired:

  • I love photography ! I love capturing the small and grand moments in life, I love the way it makes me feel inside when I see someone’s art through a photo – when it moves me to feel, to reflect, to  smile.. it is simply beautiful.

  • Second, I love to  S i n g ! Ever since I was a little girl I’ve written songs, sat “hauling” by the family piano, and let out all my emotions through music. It has been and still is one of my greatest passions.
  • Third I love to write. That is, when I feel inspired to. Like now..It’s like that with everything, you’ve got to be in the mood for it, have to feel like you have something to say that actually matters.. Although I do love just reading about peoples lives, no matter if they’re famous, successful or a stay at home I am at the moment 🙂 I guess that’s also why we all love our fair share of reality tv hehe..
  • And last but not least, I do love to dance. Although I am not pursuing it at the time being, there is always going to be that beat inside me. That excitement to dance. Sounds a bit “cheesy” reading it out loud, but hey, that’s just the way I feel.

All this to say; I’ve decided to go for it- BIGtime!
Go for what you say? Photography. I’ve done it for quite some time now, but never dared to take the r i s k  and go for it full time. In my mind, I am just me. But I am starting to realize “me” is G r e a t ! And I do know I am good at taking photos, yet there’s always more to learn, thankfully… !-Watch this space!

I’ll end with another quote from the former presidents wife :

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
