The power of thought – my great discovery!

As a young married couple we spend quite a lot of time talking about future plans. A lot of things are unstable and we are not sure where the next 5 years of our marriage will take us. For this reason we both feel a need to set goals. But at the same time, and for the same reason, goal setting is proving a little hard, as we have little feeling of anything this early in our marriage.

When great expectations come true

Marriage is something most little girls (maybe even boys) give a great deal of thought to, growing up. Personally, as a little girl I imagined myself and my future husband when watching romantic Disney movies. I’d draw pictures and play house with my Barbie dolls seeing with my inner eye the pink pink PINK future I had ahead. When I became a teenager that fairytale picture for real became a pattern after which I measured boys around me, taking note to what kind of husband I was looking for. – The song “Gaston” from Beauty and the Beast just started playing on my Spotify playlist…. Coincidence? – With time I grew tired of measuring and eagerly looked forward to the day when I had found him and my life could finally settled down. When I then found the guy, and especially after he asked me to marry him, my mere excitement was coupled with insatiable impatience to finally be wed.

And if not… excuse my blubbering… But here it is! (more…)

5 Things Super Successful People Do Before 8 AM

Lately I’ve had what feels like a wishy-washy period. I’ve been going to school alright, but as it’s online I’ve been getting out of bed kind of whatever time I wanted (kinda), taking a shower an hour before I HAD to leave the apartment and spent most of the day on the couch with the laptop and books. I felt like I needed to get some order into my newly acquired staying at home life.

This afternoon Marcus found this article titled ‘5 Things Super Successful People Do Before 8 AM’ in Forbes. You should read it before I continue! (more…)

10 things I love about our life in Hawaii

In no specific order…!

1. Sunrise – sunset. Sunrise – sunset

Hawaii is absolutely gorgeous during the day but when the sun disappears or appears over the horizon it becomes absolutely breathtaking! After seeing the first sunrise on our first morning here I loved it so much I told Marcus I wanted to see every sunrise the next 8 months (- it didn’t happen). We love going for evening walks up to the temple when the sun is going down and the sky is bright orange on the mountains. (more…)
