Where do I begin?

I want to start writing my blog here and now. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and now I have reached the point when it’s now or never.

Starting it now is somewhat symbolic. I’m 39 weeks pregnant, so while writing this, minute by minute I’m getting closer to giving birth to a little baby boy. In a way I’m bringing two lives into this world. That of my son and that of this diary. You may think that I’m a little crazy starting a blog just before my due date, but honestly, if I wait for the right time, it’s never going to come. Like with everything else. The time is now.

I want this blog to be a place to share a little bit of my inner-world. There is little use to photos and words that are locked away far from anyone’s reach. I believe that the more we share, the richer we become.

If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach them to love challenges.

The challenge

The love for challenges is something my parents have been teaching me throughout my whole life and it is something I will strive to pass on to my son. Challenge means crossing of our boundaries, leaving our comfort zones, fearlessly pursuing our goals. It’s permitting ourselves to reach further. I have lived through countless challenges in my life, bigger and smaller, but all of them life changing, and I must admit this blog is a big one too. It motivates me to express myself in a way I haven’t done yet. As much as I have always enjoyed writing, I struggled with sharing what I have on the inside in fear of not being understood. I guess I have grown up to step over that fear.

I hope you will find the content of my blog inspiring and that it will give you that little something that cannot be dressed in words. Thanks for being here and I hope you’ll keep on reading.   

It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you. If you allow it.
