Good morning, friends! How are you holding up?
Oh, the days are getting longer, and we have an amazing amount of sunshine in Bergen, which makes me very happy. Not only that, of course, but it helps a lot 😉
So…lets get into this… I have been in constant search for inspiration, for a purpose, for my place in this world – for more than a year now. And I can not deny the fact that I am a person, who gets discouraged if there’s no meaning in anything what I want to do. One of the things that consumed me the most was the thing that I loved the most, too. Photography. My love and frustration at the same time. But I guess, I just needed a big break from it (FRIENDS reference, ya’ll). All people, who do some kind of creative work, will understand me. It got so bad at one point that I felt completely lost and very depressed. Don’t worry, I can talk about it now – and I think, everyone should – because that’s the first thing you do if you want to get out of this rut. That, and finding a professional who will help you, and understanding that this will take time. For me, it is still a work in progress, but instead of dark clouds, I see sunshine above them 🙂
I got a bit too carried away, didn’t I? Hehe, well, that’s me, a girl with the love for metaphors 😛
But! I clearly don’t want to make this a sad post – it’s the opposite – with all this happening, I learned a lot about myself. It is scary to face your worst features, but it’s good to understand that you can change them, and nourish the good ones instead. I also found some new people, who inspire me on daily basis and are the reason that I want to be a better version of myself. Cin cin! 😉

I know that it is only a tiny bit that I am sharing on this topic, but I wanted to keep you updated, and I also wanted to stay true to myself – and maybe help one soul or two. Have a wonderful Friday, peeps!
