Creating the life of our dreams – ANYTHING is Pawsible!

New Years Eve in the Tropics! …Accompanied by Pablo the penguin

When I was a kid I had two favorite books. One was Three Little Pigs and the other was Pablo – The Penguin That Hated The Cold. In the story Pablo lives in Antarctica. All the other penguins thrives and plays around in the snow while Pablo is freezing and can’t stand the cold. That’s exactly how I feel about Sweden, it’s too cold for me and it doesn’t’ feel “right”. Pablo finally decides to do something about it. He starts sawing off a part of the ice floe where his house is located at, in the shape of a boat and sets off. When he reaches southern Africa the ice floe starts to melt and he continues to travel in a magical bathtub that is powered by the shower pipe. He finally reaches the Galapagos Islands and settles down for good. He builds a hut of dry palm leaves and put up a hammock in the tropics.

The story always left me with the feeling that anything is pawsible! I remember thinking that maybe I can live in the tropics one day too and enjoy the sun and the beautiful palm trees. Now I’m 37 and I have finally decided to do something about it. Ap ap ap…. relax, I’m not moving (yet). BUT I’m going to Indonesia to live the fairy tail for one month, feeling that I am finally following the foot steps of Pablo the Penguin! (IIIiiiihhh hi hi hi hi…. dancing around the apartment)

 This is what Stockholm looked like today, the first snow…

On Christmas Eve Märta and I are jumping on a plane. We are celebrating Christmas in the clouds this year and on Christmas Day we land in Denpasar in Bali. Can’t wait to explore Ubud (where we’ll be staying) and to kickstart our new projects on social media surrounded by palm trees, exotic fruits, books, yoga studios and organic healthy food.

Our new friends Melanie & Tobias already lives there and inspire us every day. They’ve built a healthy life filled with freedom and happiness. (YouTube: Love Conscious Family). Looking forward to see you soon!

Why “Why?” is so important!

I hope you all are having a wounderful Saturday! 

I am on the sofa, lit candles and a cup of tea, Napoleon curled up beside me, doing one of my online courses with the intention of step by step creating my dream life

As you know, Maria and I are looking in to ways of expanding our living, to creat what we think would be our dream life. That sounds pretty good, right? But, It will take a LOT of hard work and significant changes for the both of us. And the motivation doesn’t spring from not being in a good place, because I am, at least sort of … 😉 

 Yet, this is what we are working on, step by step, to get to our dreams to become real. But why? Why do we do this? And why is “Why?” so important?

I can only speak for myslef so here are my “Why’s”: 

Freedom – to be able to work more freely, to be able to travel more frequently, and to be able to work from around the globe. 

Prosperity – I wish to have more time spent with my loved ones; family and friends, than what I have today. That requires the money flowing in to support it. I also want to creat more time for myself for healthy habits, creativity, hobbies and passions. Plus I want to share a lot of it with you! I have soooo many ideas and things I want to share with you! Plus, I do believe in ‘give and recieve’ and sharing is the way to do it 🙂  

I want to show myself that anything is pawsible 

Plus, if we will have children in the future, I want to show them by example that we are limitless possibilities. That we have more to chose from then what our society teaches us today. As long as we do it with love, connectedness to our heart, and in the intention of creating good for our selfs and the people around us.  

And my last but not least “Why” is this – I want to show myself that anything is pawsible.  

Why are the “why´s?” so important? 

So why are the “why’s” so important then? Let me tell you that the days when you feel like you´ve hit the wall, like nothing works, and like you are doing no good – those are the days you will need to remind yourself of WHY you are doing this. 

I wish you all a cosy evening <3 

Lots of love ~ Märta 

Baby journey

This dark Saturday afternoon here in Stockholm, I’m sitting at our big dining table with my new computer, a cup of hot green tea, and just enjoying the calmness. Maria is on the sofa reading a book (a Swedish Classic, that also was made a musical by the Abba duo; Benny and Björn. Maybe you can guess which book it is? 🙂 ). It is so silent and calm. Just what I needed after a hectic week. 

This morning I had a Pilates class and then a distant healing session with a client. After that I sliped in to a hot bath with lavender essential oil and scoup of coconut oil. I feel like a little baby but now 😉 

Talking about babies, as promised I’ll share with you what is going on with our baby plans as for now. For you who saw the first blog post here on Pawsome moms, know that we just got a negative answear on the pregnancy test. We had made our second try of IVF, that didn’t stick. Now we have two more embryos in the freezer (amazing isn’t it?!) waiting for us. 

 

After the last attempt, Maria said she wanted a short break before going at it again. I thouth it was good. The hormones had taken a turn on her and a rest would be for the best. But after a month passing by and a little sisterly advice from my older sister Gina, Maria felt that she wasn’t in good shape to get pregnant. Her coming back from her burnout has taken a long time and is still an ongoing process. Maria said that looking back a year from now when we were in the middle of insemination attempts, she can’t belive how she thouth she would get pregnant. “My body and mind was so not in the state for a pregnancy, but my will of having a child made me blind to se that. I don’t want to make the same misstake again. Looking back and woundering what the h*** I was thinking.” 

Me, on the other hand, have had a gut feeling for a long time that we should start our projects of living our lifes much more freely and working for getting to that point before we have children (Yes I hope we might have two 😉 but one would be wounderful). And I have been conserned about Marias health, what it would mean to go through a pregnancy and then becoming a parent at the state she was in. That did also put a huge feeling of responsibility on my shoulders..  
I felt some what relieved when we deicded to pospone our last two trials of IVF for the future. We both really want to give those last two tries our best <3

We haven’t sat a time limit, we just said that we will give it a longer break now, until Maria feels fine and we are on board with our “Freedom Projects”. 

Oh one more thing!… We have started to look at adoptions. That would just be wounderful 🙂 Let´s see what the future holds! And for sure it holds a Dream trip.. let’s just say Christmas will be very warm this year 😉 

Lots of love ~ Märta 

Freedom lover 

If we allow everyone to be free - mostly ourselfs - we give them/us the space to fly high, to grow, to love with no limits and to expand beyond the box that only exists in our minds

Freedom - is my favourite word. It is the most allowing, spacious word in the vocabulary, I think. If we allow everyone to be free - mostly ourselfs - we give them/us the space to fly high, to grow, to love with no limits and to expand beyond the box that only consists in our minds. 

In this life I have been very sick. Experiencing what it feels like to be locked up in my own body. Someone (me?) locked me up and threw away the key. I was trapped. And after being both the fighter, the victim and probably many more rolls - I gave it my all to become well again. I even learned to give it my all only just to let it all go. I did it all for freedom. To regain my health yes, but mostly - for freedom! 

What I learned from all of this is plenty. But one thing is that freedom comes from a place within us. When the body is sick, or not functioning the way we would like it too, an injurie or getting older, we are pushed to look within ourselfs to find peace. 

All the ripples on the surface, the big storms that life throws at us, I mosly look apone them with peace now. Not necesarily with happiness and cheered up positivity - no, I can feel the deepest sadness, meaninglessness or fright sometimes - but within the storms I now feel peace and a knowingness that everything is as it sholud be. Maybe not the way I want it to be, but as it should be. All is there for me to grow and experience and discover even more peace and freedom! 

In one of my former lives (yes I belive in reincarnation, basic spirit stuff for a spirit junkie like me growing up with a psychic grandma etc. 😉 I'll get back to that another time) I was a balett dancer, and dance has been very healing for me in this life too. Taking me through some hard time and also having to let go of it at one time. Or more correctly, having to let go of the identity of beeing a dancer. Nowadays, I just enjoy dancing once in a while - in what ever form I and the dance come in. 😉 

Dancing, like here on the beautiful roof topp of the Oslo Opera house, has always made me feel free! And that's why I wanted to share this throwback thursday picture with you. It represents some of the most important things to me... 

Lots of love and freedom to you all! ~ Märta ~ 

Adding more freedom and creativity to life!

After a couple of rough years behind us, Märta and I have decided to break out of old patterns and doing what it takes to reach the life of our dreams. This is partially what this blog is about. Many small steps have been taken along the way, but the other day we took a LARGE step in the “right” direction. Let me tell you about it.

Freedom-Preneur Academy

We joined the Freedom-Preneur Academy. Doesn’t that name have a really good taste in your mouth? I think so. Freedom is very (VERY) important to both Märta and I. We want to live our life more freely and to be able to work as online entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world. Stockholm and our beautiful apartment here will always be our base, but maybe we’d like to work from Spain 3 month a year when the freezing cold weather hits Sweden, or from somewhere else. 

Okay Napoleon-fans stay clam. Napoleon can travel with us within Europe when he gets his passport.

Is this pawsible?

Anything is Pawsible! Never forget that. 😉
Am I scared, sure! Wouldn’t you be? Do I sometimes feel doubt about us being able to provide an income through internet in the future? Off course. But remember, if it feels both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it. I truly have decided to crawl out of my own comfort zone and start living a life closer to my dream (which includes palm trees). ?

I know we have a LONG (but pawsome) journey in front of us. Märta is super busy right now with her job as a speech and language pathologist and her company Light In Sight. I am still recovering from my burn out and my brain is not functioning as it used to. We are entering a new world with LOTS TO LEARN. And let’s face it – it’s going to take TIME (maybe years)! BUT my gut feeling constantly tells me that we are on the right path and I’m also starting to feel more happy just thinking about this. I’m willing to do the job, to break out in blood, sweat and tears to make this happen for us. We’ve both been struggling with some hard things in life and that has given me the strength and inspiration to pursue our dream life.

“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it.”

 

So what is our dream life then?

Stay tuned, and we’ll soon tell you more about it. 🙂

A thought for you my lovely reader. Where oh where could your dreams take YOU?
