One of those days

"My" new room

Now I’ve landed in Kristianstad where I’ll be working the coming weeks. Settled in at a new place I get to stay in while our friend who lives here is working in another city.

It’s Sunday, the weather has been shifting and I’ve been nervous before getting here and starting at work =  tired person. And very happy to be able to lay down on a sofa after traveling, biking, shopping and meeting all kinds of people.

Now relaxing and feeling comfortable, knowing things will turn out well tomorrow. Oh, I am grateful to live this super good life of mine!

Thanks ❤

New again

image

Today we’ve moved in with these two dogs, and two cats while their owners are away. It’s our first house sit in Sweden since we became “professional house sitters” last November.

The furry one, Dorian, is an eight month old puppy and he’s big. Luckily he’s very gentle when walking on a lead and is good at relaxing indoors (when not chewing on things…).
Simba is a older dobberman who loves to cuddle and check out what happens in the kitchen.

This is a house close to where Anders works, and we’re staying for a week. After a couple of weeks with lots of people around, it feels good to have a week with just the two of us and the pets.

Look for a new angle

One of my favorite scenes from the animated movie Big Hero 6, is when one of the main characters, Hiro, is swirled and shaken around on the shoulders of his elder brother in an attempt to “shake things up” and “look for a new angle” to solving a problem. Sometimes doing something totally different than sitting at a desk and ‘solving the problem’ is the perfect thing to do.

Today's Skype call with Helena

Today’s Skype call with Helena

Earlier today I had a Skype call with a good friend and Master Mind colleague, Helena, who’s an expert at looking at things from different angles and helping others to see new perspectives. We were going to talk about how we can help each other with a couple of different projects and what actually needs to be done. That was my angle. And when we finished, Helena had helped me see a totally different perspective, and things got so much clearer in my head. (and new questions had started to form too ;-)).

This is also where Helena is a master at “holding a space” for others to be in, in this case me. Because I felt a little lost and ashamed – I “should” know what I’m doing, right!? And I “should” just get it done. But something has held me back and by listening behind my words, Helena helped me see another angle and to actually bring clarity to some thoughts I’ve had over the past few days.

A swim is a great way to change perspective for me

Being held in a space of love means that I can be me, full out, without feeling like I have to guard my human experience.

Still, like a Swedish summer night

Tonight I also got to see the physical world from a new perspective. The place I had thought of visiting was “taken” by someone else, so I looked for a new place around the corner.

... this old house had such a great view!

The new New

Suddenly in Cairo, Egypt. Suddenly in a new environment, new (to us) culture. Suddenly, and again, in a new setting of people, new aquantencies, new subjects of discussion and again a new home, a new pet, almost everything totally new to us and yet still at home, still together, still at peace.

Sunshine and blue sky

Sitting in bed at night, trying to grasp all that has happened the last 36 hours; flights, friends, airports, hotel, sleep, staying awake, new people, new places, new bed and… It’s so much to take in, much to learn and catch, many, many things. Inspiring, tiring, scaring, laughing, leaning, listening, seeing, hearing, waring, eating.

It’s all ours. It’s all us. It’s all here. It’s all now.

We know nothing about next. Nothing about tomorrow. Noting about later. It’s all here. It’s all now, new.
