The time is now

I did it. I quit my job. On Thursday.  In a way, this was bound to happen but it was kind of out of the blue anyway since I had always imagined that I would find something I'd rather do while working.Last week I realized that that wasn't happening, and that maybe that wasn't the … Continue reading The time is now


Living the country life

I am back from another trip. More inspired than ever! I do apologize, though, to certain friends (Lisa, you know who you are) who worried my offline-ness might translate to "something bad happened". Note to self: in the time and age of "There is no offline, there is only away from keyboard", announce any awol … Continue reading Living the country life

AWOL | I still exist

OK, this post really doesn't have a purpose other than saying, "I still exist". I have been awol due to spontaneous traveling (yes, I do feel blessed to have such opportunities). I am back now but only for a couple of days which will be filled with work, so I doubt there'll be much blogging … Continue reading AWOL | I still exist

Facing our demons | Say yes

Yup. More rantage coming up. Writing yesterday's post felt liberating but it upset parts of me that are afraid of the path I've begun to walk, parts that are afraid of letting go, afraid of letting something new (= unknown) in. Parts that try to hang on to the old, no matter how destructive it … Continue reading Facing our demons | Say yes

Food fight | She’s lost control again …

I really should have written this one on Thursday, when "everything" happened but it got late, and I had to get up early on Friday (yesterday was my first day without a post - thanks, real world with money and work and stuff). As I feared, I really don't feel like writing about it anymore … Continue reading Food fight | She’s lost control again …

Thrift-store raid

I can never go into a thrift-store without buying a bunch of stuff. So I am equally thrilled as terrified by the fact that here in Sweden thrift-stores (called "loppis", short for "loppmarknad" = flee-market) are all over the place. I kid you not: even when you're driving on the loneliest road through the woods … Continue reading Thrift-store raid

What’s your morning routine?

Do you get up just in time to throw on some clothes, leave for work, and maybe grab some coffee on the way? Do you get up early so you can take your time and wake up slowly, read the paper, and eat breakfast at home? What does your morning look like? I have always … Continue reading What’s your morning routine?

Which is your dominant dosha?

Here comes some of that "basic Ayurveda stuff" I have been meaning to write about. I have been using terms such as "Pitta", "dosha" and "dominant dosha" without actually explaining them. Maybe you've looked them up yourself, maybe you just overread them. The ten pairs of gunas Ayurveda is much about qualities (gunas) of things, … Continue reading Which is your dominant dosha?

The quitter wins

I am not ready to let the kitchen cleaning mission go yet I still don't really feel like it. Then this CRAZY idea popped into my mind: What if I just do the parts that seem easy, and see how far I get? This might sound simple to most but for someone who has been … Continue reading The quitter wins

A Science of Sleep

My infatuation with Ayurveda still feels new, it's only been a few weeks. That's why it's so amazing to me that it already has made such a huge impact on my life. The biggest change Ayurveda has led me to - perhaps like a lot of significant changes - is concerning something seemingly banal: my … Continue reading A Science of Sleep
