Do you seriously think that my life is only what's written here? I might have evaluated the human to high, but one must understand there's a greater truth to it. Perfection, perfect lives, perfect people do not exist. We should not strive for it either. It's dangerous and one will only end up with a feeling that nothing is ever good enough.
I get complained by as soon as I'm responding back to the people giving negative feedback; am I not allowed to raise my voice and explain myself? Do you just expect me to be quiet? You need to be able to handle an answer if you are capable to speak your mind, even if my opinion is from another point of view than yours.
M is not super rich, I'm not super rich, we haven't inherited an enormous sum of money from some random aunt. We have worked for our money and still do. We don't come from super rich parents, but both of us comes from good parents with warm hearts and good values in life. That itself can get you very far.
I have always been quite independent in that area though I've been taught early in life the value of money. If I wanted a designer jacket as a teenager, I had to earn at least half of it myself If i wanted the rest to be paid by my parents. It was car washing, baby sitting, cleaning the garage, cleaning whatever was dirty. Ever since I've had companies, studied hard, made a career and made my own money out of different possibilities in life. How hard can that be to understand?
Many women take facials a couple of times per month, do their nails, hair and have trainings card and all of that. I never do, I priority other things like a nice coat or whatever I want. I know i'm living a richer life than most people on this earth. I'm totally aware of that and very grateful. But money doesn't come for free in life and it most certainly wont grow on trees. They comes from entrepreneurship, good ideas, daring to take risks, goals, motivation and a strive for something extra ordinary in life. I've always been like that and always will. So has my man.
I will not write about when we fight, when I have a low period or something like that anymore. I'm a mother now and too old for flashing my whole private life into a random cyber space. But i'm just like you. I live a normal everyday life but always try to make conscious choices to make it better and be filled with things I like, that make me feel good and that get's me and my family in the direction of life that I aim for.
What i show here is what I would like to share to give you a glimpse, to get a good feeling, to be indulged with beauty and style and some of my thoughts about whatever I feel like writing about. I know I wrote so much more about spiritual things before, I wish I had the time and energy for that but my priorities often lies somewhere else at the moment and as I wrote before in a post some month ago ... I don't have the same need anymore. But believe me, I still think the same way and still practise it in my everyday; and still to this day I know what a force it is to take control over your thoughts and to focus on what you want in life instead of the opposite. But at one point I also felt like i've said it all and written about most things out there in the post you can find HERE and HERE.
These pictures is from my father on our last trip together. It's just a little sneak, but It shows the more correct Stina that is 90 percent of the time when I'm trying to get life together even if I choose to do it in designer clothes, because that might be a great passion of mine. It's not a shrimp cocktail all the time, but there's so many other blog's where you can read about this kind of "I'm washing and cleaning" and I try to give you something else, the best parts of my life and time.
I truly enjoy writing a blog. It's my creative corner and I get a lot back i know. Thank you so much for that! I love to read all inspiring comments (and try to answer most of them) and I don't expect them all to be nice and positive, but I wont take crap and just negativism in general that someone's looking for a "spit out" source with a never ending feeling to it. This is not a chat forum for bringing someone down, not me nor any of my readers.
As I've said before, I'd like this place to be dynamic, vivid and full of feedback. But I have to set the limit somewhere. I know I shouldn't even complain, because I have them so seldom, but today there was an inflation of them and this is just another explanation of something I didn't really realize needed one.
Thank you and let's drop this and move forward!
