Life is a highway!


How to have faith that your life will get better?

How to stay positive and keep your dreams alive while living very basic life and watching at the same time other people going forward with their lives the same way you wish you could? It is difficult. Luckily I have deep down very optimistic person inside of me. Exercising, socializing and being active trying to do things you like is the key to stay positive ๐Ÿ™‚ You need to put one foot in front of the other and keep on going. Pushing yourself out from the dark and melancholic cave where you have been for a very long time cutting down ties to people and just trying to stay alive (while feeling very depressed from time to time) is hard, I know! But it is possible. You need to do it day after day, one step at the time. You will fall again many times but all the time if you just keep on pushing yourself towards normal life you are slowly getting better and better and suddenly you notice you smile and laugh much more often than you used to ๐Ÿ™‚ I am still afraid of letting people come back to my life and coming out from my safe cave but I will do it! Slowly ๐Ÿ™‚ I just need more positive people around me who give me courage to try new things.

At the same time it is very important to remind yourself regularly how many things really are well in your life! I am extremely grateful about million things in my life! Do not just concentrate on things that you wish would be better. It is a clichรฉ but true that you need to count your blessings. If your basic things in life are fine (health (especially!), family, a home!, fresh water, food etc etc) then you already have many things to enjoy. I for example enjoy going to a warm shower. It is so enjoyable and a normal thing for me but not for many people on this planet! We need to have dreams and go towards them but we need to keep the humbleness with us at the same time. Life is constant balancing. But exercising really makes you feel better! I highly recommend ๐Ÿ™‚ Just came from fitness boxing and I love it! So people, you just need to keep on going and get out from your head! There are so many things to enjoy in life and a lot of beautiful things around you. Peace, love and namaste. And good luck to my dad who just flew to Spain and starts soon a sailing race over the Atlantic ocean with no experience of sailing ๐Ÿ˜€ Go dad! Life is ment to be lived trying new and scary things! Just come back safe and sound ๐Ÿ™‚


“Ships are safe in the harbour but that’s not what they were built for”


I just have this Huge urge to explore this world – different places, different cultures, different kind of nature and everything. I have SO many ideas where to go and it is difficult for me to really stick with one plan and start to make that adventure to become a reality someday (hopefully sooner than later!). The freedays from work are limited so that’s the biggest thing hindering me from pursuing my dreams. (Also the psychological lock that questions if I really am allowed to be happy and live my life in my own way). I also want to use my holidays to go to meet my family, relatives and friends. So how to have time for all of these? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d like to go for example to explore Asian countries, South American countries (test my very basic Spanish skills. Yes I know they speak Portuguese in some countries), also North America would be interesting in many ways, visit countries in Africa AND visit Australia and New Zealand again. And, and, and… These dreams keep me alive in otherwise monotonous life where nothing happens – just work and being mostly by myself. I don’t know what to do with these dreams! ๐Ÿ˜€ Where to start and with whom. Time and money are limited. I just figured out one day that my dream job could be an explorer. I was born to learn and to find new things all the time. I was ready to settle down with a guy I was madly in love with but there were too many obstacles so maybe it wasn’t ment to be. Now I can start to chase after my dreams again – which is awesome.
Others buy houses, dogs, fancy cars and start a family. I run on my own searching for new things ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes it feels very lonely. (I feel I haven’t achieved things people at my age usually have and I feel I am different so it’s difficult to find people who truly share the same passion as me). But I’ve noticed it is my way of living so I will try to keep this habit alive. I though really hope I will also find (and be able to keep) the love of my life. But in the meanwhile “Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seat belts” ๐Ÿ˜€ โค


“You are very lucky to have a passport”

There are many good blogs out there that give us so much joy and helps us to get out from our head and take a broader view of life. One of these blogs is held by Eric Ibey. I pumped into one of his articles recently about break up and subscribed to his mailing list. Now he just sent an article about something that really resonates with my heart – making life again a bit simpler and seeing the world!

If we are able to travel we are extremely privileged. I’ve known that always but this blog post reminded me of that again. And made my urge to travel even bigger. I just have to see the world – I have to.

ps. Here’s one blog that I have been following for years already. They have really helped me with their writings.


New plans again

I don’t know to whom am I writing for but I still thought I’ll share some pieces of my life again. Hopefully I’ll have someday time and energy to put here more photos from my trips (like the rest of the Iceland trip). ๐Ÿ˜€

My life has taken a U-turn again. My relationship didn’t work out so my plans to move to Australia doesn’t happen either. I am now trying to figure out what to do instead. Definitely my heart tells me to travel more! And not some small one week holidays (although they are very expected and welcomed too! Thanks to Jonna, Pauliina and Pia) ๐Ÿ™‚ but some bigger and braver like travel around the world alone, go to New Zealand for awhile with a working holiday visa or go for example to Nepal to do some voluntary work. If I’m planning to be more than one month in a row travelling I will then though have to quit my permanent job so I really have to make some detailed plans before acting out. Any ideas what I could do with my life in the near future? ๐Ÿ˜€

I am very grateful that everything is possible now! I just need to find my path now. Some nice travelling company would be welcomed too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Seydisfjรถrdur with 700 inhabitants in a valley between big mountains. The road to there was very frightening to drive but the view was amazing in the evening! This town has a friendship with Finnish city called Vantaa.
