Hey guys! I’m back. Yeeeew… My mood is completely liftet and I feel motivated AF. First of all, I still don’t know what I want to do with my life – work wise – but I have accepted it and I know what I want from the rest. And also, it’s a lie… Because I kinda know what I want in my “work life”, I just don’t quite know how to go about it, and that’s what I am working on at the moment. But with no resentment, just motivation.
I read an article the other day on the danish philosopher Morten Albæk, who talks about the paradoks of work-life-balance. His key point (from my interpretation) is that this is not a thing. You can’t separate work and life, because your life is happening all the time, and you have to accept that. I read this article in the middle of my gloomy-nothing-works-for-me-period, and I believe it helped pulling me out of my mental stoner.
I get so affected by other peoples brilliance, and I am very aware of the fact. Therefor I tend to read books on self development, views of life etc. and it helps me a lot. I don’t tend to follow rules like a slave, but I like to get ideas and implement them in my own way of thinking. And the article about mr. Albæk helped. No question. And for that particular reason, I should also get a hold of his new book, since thats the place where he really talkes about it. *Note to self!
Okay, anyways… This has turned into a ramble. As I said my motivation is back, and I am working with the difference between what people expect and what it actually is that I want. And getting myself closer to the ladder. I fixed some things for me to work on in the future and found a way to remove myself from my day to day trivialities. Trivialities that I normally tend to be very fund of but that – for now – needs to change. More about that later, because that is a surprise. HA!
For now, I’ll go shoot some pictures at an event and enjoy a night out with a most loved friend tonight. Yay.

Lots of love
