Boosting the energy in my life

It’s at least been a month since I decided to hit the gym after work for half an hour and pump some motivation into my life. A month ago I was feeling so beaten by life and work that I wanted to do everything to get away from it all.

Instead of making the stupid mistake of leaving everything behind, I told myself I couldn’t sit and feel sorry for myself. I had to do something to prevent me from feeling like…

Smile Project Moments [5] – The Warmth of Cold

There are times when the snow falls in a very dreamy way. Even though it’s falling, it feels as if it wants to stay in the air just a bit longer. As you look through the window, you see the snow stopping mid-air as if taking the time to look at you and then dancing around before finally giving up to gravity and falling a bit lower. It’s almost as if it finds joy in hanging around in the air a bit longer before ultimately hitting the ground and being stuck in one place. This video is from one of…

Today, I took the lovely chance to head out of the house. Last few days had been pretty warm with snow melting and raining. And the sun just made everything look so awesome. Oh dear sun, I love how you never fail to deceive me (Still, love you). I checked the weather. -11C. Not so bad with the sun. Took the liberty to spend an hour curling my hour (which seriously I never do!). For some reason I had this idea of looking beautiful against the beautiful white snow (oh did I tell you? It snowed again last night after…

Scary Cold Winters

In response to Your Personality on the Page One of my biggest fears in life is to be left alone outside in the deep cold and have no home to go to. I can imagine myself wandering in the cold with pounds and pounds of clothing in which I find it really hard to walk. Yet, there is no other option. To be in the middle of the world roaming around like a dot as seen from a far far planet. To be alone in a land of all white to the distance where white meets the sky. The cold…
