The weekend started great with a lot to do. The cat just had kittens about a week ago, my daughter is so happy, and we went to the stables Friday evening to get the weekend started. So it’s a happy girl getting names for all the kittens 🙂
Today we are just hanging out arranging my daughters room getting things to the recycle centre and packing clothes and stuff to charity making more room for new ones while sneak peaking at the kittens. So we are having a happy weekend. Also to go for the weekend is a bit of work and continue to write a letter to a friend. How amazing it can be to actually write letters, it’s a great feeling, we are so used to all this digital world with all emails and technology (that I also like) but sometimes it’s a good feeling with real things, like an ‘antique’ style letter. So hopefully that enlightens the day when it’s getting there.
Other than that recharging myself is on top of the list, doing a half detox cure, waiting for spring with a bit more energy to come hopefully and keeping a look out at the housing markets dreaming away with how I want to build the house I have in mind, and wondering how Brexit will affect our reality. I guess riding it out is our strategy, wait and see. Since we have been spending a decent amount of time in England we are trying to be updated about the situation and remain cool calm and collected about it. I guess it all clears out in a while anyway.
So the conclusion have to be; it’s so nice with weekends.
Seems like my super thing to do at the moment is letting time fly. Have to say cleaning the flat / apartment definitely ticks in for that box. While waiting for better things to happen I sometimes wonder; is wasting time really possible? I mean if everything has a meaning this waiting is meant for a function, preparing you for something, smoothing the way, building up to something that looking forward to happen…. So it all make sense anyway right. I find inspiration, I am trying to build solid stories and lines in my writings, so it all comes towards something, it sometimes is a process of breathing in to be able to breath out.
I am trying to pack the flat wisely since I decided to get a writers den. So while saving up for getting away and actually do it, I organized the flat to make sure it happens.
So waiting for spring to come again while doing all that and dreaming away and trying to fit a bit of more room in for writing. (Am so stuck in the story by the way, so it’s probably a week of work to just get the story going in a straight line at the moment) ( kind of a project). But doable especially in a writers den. Looking forward to be on the road with that.
So while waiting for something, undefined what, to happen, I am so looking forward to see spring again, makes me happy just by the thought of it
Decluttering the flat/apartment is on top of the list today. OMG how often do you really need to get the waste out and fix the floors? Since I am used to having a maid and now am without one I am amazed to see what difference it makes, especially time wise. So that’s my tip of the day, get a maid to get things done and prioritize time wiser.
Sometimes the pressure to keep doing what to do is more intense than the actual place one is at. I mean in clarity, the presence is held in smog a little bit and the urge to move away is more intense just from running away rather than to choose what to run towards. I try to find clarity and courage to face the truth in presence and to make good decisions based on that, since I like perfect I am trying to bring perfect to every aspect in our way.
Yesterday I went for a bit of a walk out at the islands of Stockholm it’s so beautiful at anytime I think. So while leaping in the most of sunlight possible during the day I noticed the days are noticeable longer now, so that’s a sign for springtime coming our way soon maybe. And today I even saw the first set of spring flowers, very nice.
While doing all these earthly normal things I been thinking about how to progress towards my goals and what obvious goals there may be. I feel a little torn with time for writing at the moment since I have a lot to do with just earthy shores and in need of re-writing my manuscript and translate it to English and that’s a big thing for me, aswell as continue the story with the second part of the trilogy that I really look forward to get the story going for the sisters. So I need to figure out how to balance that to get things done as well.
So it’s a lot about time at the moment I guess, thoughts about time, stories about time, and the time to realize that the clock is set and maybe it’s just lessons learned or just a major realization to wake up to, but time flies and sometimes it really is relevant to our presence and sometimes I wonder where it’s been.
Some days are just made for dreamers. Days like these were the thoughts or dreams keep one going forward. That friend you thought you had or that person you think you have to see or that jumper you really need to buy or those worlds that you just need to hear. It’s almost like affirmations to program the coming I guess. Wishes, dreams, thoughts, goals, visualizing. Sometimes it’s just to find the roads to where going make things real. I guess it’s a form of becoming presence in a way. From thought to reality. And sometimes the ideal dream seems so far away.
When I started to write the Loyalty for ever manuscript I was a bit unsure about if to write in Swedish or English. So I had heard somewhere that it’s good to write in the native speaking language so I decided to write in Swedish. Although we are bilingual and do speak English with a daughter that’s sometimes more English than Swedish it was a bit tricky to decide, since the way to express is actually different regarding to what language we are in.
So anyway, the loyalty for ever is written in Swedish but with very English mixed within maybe, specially since the story is set in England by the sea mostly and Stockholm. So after much thought I decided to rewrite the script to an English version, I felt a bit tempted and led in that way so that’s what I am working with at the moment.
It’s been a while since I wrote it and it’s kind of exiting to go through and step it up a bit with rewriting it and I decided to find professional readers to work with me through the story aswell so that’s how I think I am progressing with that, so I guess full steam forward.
