    RESCHEDULING

    I can believe that just a week ago I posted about my EVENTFUL SPRING here on the blog and the next, all of the events this spring might be cancelled or rescheduled because of the Covid-19. Personally, I’m worried about the state of health of the people around me (especially the elderly and the ones with a condition), thus I think now more than ever it is more important to take care of one another instead being upset that things don’t go as planned. Of course one can be sad and that’s only a human response to all what’s going on in the world right now. In Finland, we are currently…

    GROWING GROUNDED

    I’ve been hibernating all autumn. I haven’t really been seeing anyone, had any parties, done any sports… I’ve cut down my internet/social media use by half, if not even more. I just had to even though I didn’t wish to. This autumn has been very hard for me and I’ve needed some time to settle to the current needs of my everyday life. I’ve gone back to my roots and tried to unravel them to make more sense of me and components my life. I needed to do this to able to bare the storms that have come and are still ahead. Strong roots keep the tree standing no matter…

    BEAM OF LIGHT

    It has been about two months now since I cut my hair and changed my hair colour to brunette again. I’m happy with the change and surprisingly it wasn’t even that hard to get used to it. Shorter hair feels quite natural. I’ve been dreaming of this kind of French bob for about a year now and at the end of the summer I had the guts to do it, yay! No regrets! I’m actually having a hard time to imagine a longer hair now… Oops, haha! So it’s finally beginning to look like autumn outside, even though we have had some amazingly warm days in August and September in…

    BEING ALONE VS. LONELINESS

    Long gone are the days that I could spent by myself, doing whatever or whatever not. I love being alone as much I love being in a company of family or friends. Before having a family, I loved making a decision of being alone once in a while. As I became a parent plus five years ago, I haven’t had a lot of extra time on my hands. Not to mention me-time. This all was anticipated and accepted. Having a family and being a mother has its perks and have been dreams of mine as long as I can remember. I’ve never wanted anything more than a family of my…

    RESTLESS

    Since having a summer vacation I’ve been quite absent from the social media. It wasn’t a conscious decision, but I’ve had a lot of time to myself and to my thoughts. I’ve been wondering about my purpose and my direction in life. It feels like being a little more offline has had good influence on my mind. I’m noticing things that I usually wouldn’t in the normal and rather hectic life of mine. After ending my studies and graduating I’ve felt a little restless. I feel like I could have space for something to fill up the emptiness that the end of my studies brought to me. Yet, at the…
