California dream

I must be caught in some bad luck spiral at the moment. I'd already been sick seven days when we went down to Geneva and there M's father was really in a bad condition, and of course both Alexis and me got all sick again. So now I'm listening to this California dream while trying to cope with a double ear infection, sinusitis and migraine. A lovely cocktail wouldn't you say? Grrr ...

  1. Such a homely cosy photograph, it says so much.
    I love that song, I always sing out loud to it in the car. Hope the sickly cobwebs blow off soon.

  3. "this could be heaven or this could be hell..." Retrotastic music, mug and nibbles.
    Wow, you've caught some nasty stuff there Stina. Awful being sick and having a sick child to look after too!
    Take care.

  4. Neeej! Trist. Krya på dig.
    Jag satt och tänkte lite på dig och "This too, shall pass". Det känns lite som att du lever livet intensivt och fullt ut. Det blir aldrig halvdant när det händer dig, utan det blir liksom upphöjt i 10. Höga toppar, men kanske tyvärr också djupa dalar. Verkar iaf gälla denna del i ditt liv. Du träffar THE man, får barn fast det inte skulle gå, måste flytta och det är liksom alltid mer dramatik än för de flesta. (Förresten, helt klart bra stoff för långfilmen: Stina, a woman, a life, a movie :) MEN det jag vill säga med denna insikt är att HA FÖRTRÖSTAN. Precis lika eländigt som det känns nu, med sjukdom på sjukdom, regnigt väder och en stad med mera som känns hopplöst, PRECIS lika fantastiskt är jag säker på att det kommer bli lite längre fram.

    Mitt liv är lite så här också, och det man lär sig är att allt är faser (precis som de små) och om du bara inte ger upp utan har förtröstan till att det blir bättre, så ska du se att du når än högre höjder inom kort.

    Dock, precis som med the secret, därmet inte sagt att du inte måste jobba med det. Dvs följa de inspirerande tankarna som kommer till dig och följa hjärtat/magkänslan framåt.

    Kram

    1. Katti: I've couldn't have said it better myself. I'm known in my closest friend circle to always have had this sort of dramatic, vivid life and whenever something extreme comes up, they're always, "but Stina, this is your life, always dramatic, always extreme, when you get something it's either super great almost a dream come true, or horrible, extremely sad etc"
      So Katti you've nailed it. It's my life and even though it's hard to sometimes believe it will be better, I also, far in there now it's true. I just need to start working with my mind setting again and visualise and turn my negative thoughts into those strong positive ones that I know that i'm capable in if I just get in the right track.


      Thank you for this excellent analyse and for taking time to writing it down!
      Warmth,
      stina

    1. I'm sure it is, the body is a measurement of how the soul is feeling. I really hope you too get better soon and finding your own kind of strength!

  8. hope u will feel better soon! It is so typical that all things comes at the same time!! I am sendeing u plenty of warm and positive thoughts!

    I have just started (more determined than ever) to work with my thoughts the way you explain in your old posts. It is incradible how I stop and notice that I am sending out negative energy, changing my mind and then can feel a difference in my body while doing so. I have read the secret but I think it is difficult to implement but after scrolling in you blog, like many times before, I just decided that now is the time to do this. I have been spending my last year at a job I do not like and can see how I have become more bitter and negative, and just a few days after I started with the positive thinking, (took a night with meditation and yoga to make a clear change for myself)my phone rang and I got the opportunity for a new job! I do believe so strongly that this happend because of my positive view and my energies, and that is the reason I have not been able to leave my job for a year but got a joba and 3 other opportunitys in three days.

    Thank u for sharing your wisdome and experiences and making it possible to go bvack in your blog and find inspiration when needed.

    Take care!

    Dont worry me too and after many vitamins and some cocktails it will be better,no you are not in depression just tired. The depression I know what it is!! and we do not want to go out, we leave in the black, we do not eat and cry all the time. You are only tired and you have done too much my dear Stina. Take rests and take of yourself be a little be selfish....

  12. Dear Stina, you will go through this unfortunate time. Think positive and (even if it's hard to believe)soon there will be good times again! Have you ever thought about practising yoga? It's great for body and soul!

    1. Hi!, not yoga but I want to start Pilates, what is your thoughts about that?

    2. I personally believe that yoga ist a bit better because of the way you breathe during the yoga positions. I really like that and it helps me to relax-always! Even if it sounds crazy but it changed my life in some way.

      Have a nice evening!
      Best wishes
