Creating the life of our dreams – ANYTHING is Pawsible!

The fear of getting married…

Am I nervous about getting married – YES. ABSOLUTELY.

At first, I just felt this unreal distress about our wedding. I couldn’t pin point what the anxiety came from or what it meant, and it made me very confused. Don’t get me wrong – I love being engaged to Märta and I love the fact that she asked ME and that she is so cool about all this wedding planning. And I love HER. ❤

After we went to look at the church where we are planning on having the ceremony I knew what has freaked me out. Feelings.

Sofia church, Södermalm in Stockholm

 

I saw myself standing in front of family and friends bursting into tears and showing my feelings for everyone to see. I’m not an emotional person, or at least I haven’t been before, but everything changes. And I need to get used to it. I know that I will not be able to go through the wedding ceremony without crying and it scares the shit out of me. On so many levels.

Märta is more relaxed about our wedding plans… 🙂

 

I also feel uncomfortable being in the center of attention for a whole day. You might not think so, but it’s true. Maybe it’s appropriate to say God help me now that I’m getting married in a church ? something I never thought I would do.

Always imagined I was getting married in a skyscraper or at the beach in some warm place like Hawaii.

Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?

Am I being true to myself? Am I living the life I’m meant to live – a life that most honors the real me, celebrates my deepest values and respects my highest dreams? This is questions that I struggle with every day now a days. Not only if I have the courage but more importantly – what is my gift? What is it that is going to be my legacy in the world?

I think that my future is going to look (and is already looking) very different from how it would have turned out if I hadn’t undergone my journey – the burnout – over the last couple of years.

My self-esteem was built only on what I managed to achieve at work. First as an authorized accounting consultant and then later as a CFO. I always prioritized work over friends, lovers, vacation, my health and hobbies, over anything to be honest. Now when I have been on sick leave for a very long time and have had the time to discover what I enjoy doing, I have realized that I really enjoy being creative, using my imagination, read books and to travel the world with my future wife Märta. Here a thought emerges. Is this something I can make a living of in the future? It’s a thrilling (and scary) thought.

Then my realistic self emerges and tells me that I need to make a living and that I should go back to economics now that I’m feeling better and is soon to start working again. And yes, this is what is about to happen. At least for a while. The difference now is that I have discovered a whole bunch of things that I enjoy doing, that a had forgotten about when I was working all the time. And today I made a promise to myself that I am going to set aside time to really do these things, and just not dream about them anymore.

Maybe I’ll write a Scandinavian crime fiction book. Maybe I’ll try swimming or paddle. Maybe I’ll start a book club with some new friends. Maybe Märta and I’ll go to a (scary) dance class together.

Its time for me to start living a more authentic life! I think that if you begin to do things that you are frightened of it might make life less scary in the long run. Will you join me?        

Photo explosion from Bali

I’m so grateful for the time we are able to spend together here in Indonesia. It almost feels unreal. One whole month of exploring, eating healthy, doing yoga, working on our projects, reading Scandinavian crime fiction and spiritual books, going for long walks under the palm trees, enjoying the sun (and the heavy rains, it rains a lot).

And also – planning our wedding! Something I didn’t thought we were going to do on this vacation!! I love you Märta! So glad you poped the question! It all happened on Christmas Eve, the proposal. I wasn’t at all prepared for it. I thought Märta needed one or two more years, at least, before she was ready. And now here we are, with rings on our fingers looking at wedding dresses. I promise to tell you all about the proposal another day. Subscribe down below so you don’t miss any details. 😉

The idea was to show you a lot more photos, but we’re having some problems with Wi-Fi at the moment. 

~~Love from Maria~~ (who is in a café reading Elisabeth Gilberts book ‘Big Magic – Creative living beyond fear’ while Märta is having a massage)

What we eat when in Bali – Favourite restaurants and cafés

Let me tell you there is some great food here in Bali! For me it is important to eat clean most of the time since I notice a big difference in my health when I eat healthy. I have tried many options when it comes to healthy food and habits and have now found my way that works really great. I don’t keep it strict, but i know how to when needed. Here in Bali, especially around Ubud, it is easy to eat clean and green. Many places has got great food on their menues!

Our favourite resturants has been in and around Ubud. We will give you a taste of our favourite restaurants, starting with this one; The Yellow Flower Café. 

When it isn’t very cloudy, this café has a nice view of the volcano Gunung Agung. The place is run by an Australien woman and her Balinesian husband.  

We usually share a coconut and it comes with cute plant straws – really organic. ? 

The raw spring rolls with a peanut sauce with a touch of mint is to die for.  Basically everything on the menu is good. It is all organic, local and mostly vegetarian and vegan. Though there are some option if you are in the mood for fish or organic chicken. 

We also had a big breakfast here with smoothie bowls and papaya lime frappochino (the orange sort of sorbé you can see above). So deliscious! 

The tempeh and corn sallad doesn’t look much fun here…but it is so so good. 

The way to The Yellow Flower Café is lovely. Quite exotic for a Swede! ?? 

Let’s wraps it up with a dessert! A Balinesian rice pancake with shreded coconut, palm nectar, strawberries and bananas. Yummie! 

Lots of love and health from Bali ❤?❤ ~ Märta

At the same time we are aiming at creating our dream life of freedom, love and prosperity, with all the ups and downs life has to offer, we wish to share it with you. <3 Hoping we can inspire each other!

We believe that anything is Pawsible- Wheater you look at it from a quantum physics way with energy fields and string theory, or through a spiritual perspective, or just the perspective that where the attention goes – energy flows. What ever way of perspective that suits you, go with it. What is more important, however, is the core of it all, the LOVE, CREATIVITY and JOY! 
And that is what we will give and share with you on PAWSOME MOMS! Thank you for joining and let us know what inspires you in Life! Comment down below.

Dykes on  bikes on the way to Organic market in Ubud

Today we became dykes on bikes, yeay! ?? … and went to the local market that is once a week on Saturdays here in Ubud. 

All organic. Imagine all the colours, the tastes, the textures, the flavours, the smells and the impressions.  Wow! I will let the pictures speak for them selfes. ????? 

And at night we went to our near by restaurant, Paddy Points, enjoying our first evening sun. ? 

Before I had to run an errand and got caught in the rain. Literally soaking wet! Then Maria and I went back home, dodging a lot of toads.. 

Good night from our cocoon, safe from frogs and heavy rain! 

Xoxo ~ Märta ❤

First yoga in Bali ?

Last night we tried another restaurant for dinner here in Ubud, or more like it, a café – Café Vespa. The feeling was more western than the other places we’ve tried. 

We shared a big coconut. They are so delicious here in Bali! The taste is fresh and not too sweet. Not to mention all the healthy benefits from drinking a coconut. A really good thing is to squeez some lime in to it. Yumie! 

Maria had an Italian inspired veggie dish and I had an Indian inspired dosa (sort of a crepe but glutenfree) that I filled with mashed sweet potatoe, spinache, schreded coconut and hommus. Delicious! 

Today we had our first yoga session and since we’ve been jetlaged from our arrival to Bali, we started off with some gentle restorative yoga at this nice place close to our house outside of Ubud. 

In the middle of a rice field, in the open air, together with Oscar the very relaxed  yoga cat, we got into a good vibe with some rewinding yoga. 

And off course, we chilled off with a dip in the pool afterwards. ??? 

 

Tomorrow new adventures await… 

Lots of love ~ Märta ? 

Bali night – Delicious vegan dinner in top rated restaurant  

In the middle of the rise fields, in what felt like a small piece of jungle, we sat down in a little wooden mini house, one with no walls and just a dinner table in the middle and cusions around it, to enjoy the Balinesian night. The smell from the kitchen reached us and we got really excited for what was coming. 

Our dear friends Melanie and Tobias, whom stayed in Bali many times, took us to an all plant based restaurant. They had preordered the starters for us and we understand why. The jackfruit tacos tasted like heaven. And the rest of the dinner to follow were just as good! 

Fresh juice and a probiotic drinks. 

So if ever in Ubud, Bali, try restaurang Moksa! ???? 

Now time for a stroll in Penestanan. Plenty to discover! Lots of love ~ Märta ❤ 

Ho ho ho Holliday on Xmas Eve! 

Happy holidays and God Jul as we say here in Sweden! ❤??

We are just about to board our first flight and so we decided that today, on Christmas Eve, on our way to the sun ?? we give you our first vlog! 

A short one ? We’ll soon come back for more. Lots of Love ~ Märta and Maria ❤
