The new year is just around the corner. I’m longing for it. It is filled with new exciting things. But before it begins we all have to think back and remember what we have done this year. What a year. Having this blog is such an amazing thing. It makes it so easy to remember. I had so much fun going back all a the way to january. I’ve done a few big changes in life. Looking back make me realize that I’ve grown as a person. I advise you all to do the same. So here is my year month by month:
January – I kicked of the new year with work, work and work. I did have an awesome New Years Eve. Celebrated with my beloved friends. Had a laugh and stayed up late. Who doesn’t on new years eve anyway.. I remember being really confused about what to do in life. Had been that way since I got back from Australia but this time was even worse. What was i suppose to do? Study? Travel? So I mainly focused on training. One of my new years resolution. I remember being in love with Pilates.
February – This month I went from being lost in my life to suddenly over a night apply to be an organic skincare therapist at the Axelssons Gymnastic Institute. Or at least it felt like it went that fast. I went to a talk about the education and after that I just had to get in. A few days later I applied. Finally I knew a little bit more on what to do with my life. This is also the month when I decided to quit smoking. Being as emotional as I am the quitting made me more of an emotional wreck at times. But I knew I just had to ride along with it. So first I could manage a weekend. Then I manage a week and suddenly march came.
March – This was the month when my education started. I was so nervous, anxious and excited. after the first week I knew that I´d made the right decision. This was it! I had so much inspiration and energy. It totally changed my view on life in general. I had something to look forward to. But along with all the new things my motivation to go an train was all gone sadly.. But I started to change my food habits and the non smoking me was at least on the right path.
April – All in all this was a happy month. It was time for my favorite fair. A new age fair. Just in time when I needed it the most. Growing up isn´t easy, that is one thing to remember. But with easter coming just around the corner i decided to hop on a bus up to my mom. That trip made me fall in love with Nordingrå. I started to appreciate that place so much. The nature is just unbelievable! Spring, summer, fall, winter.. All the seasons are incredible up here. Magical! So I actually came up twice this month. At the end of the month everything felt like it should. I was so proud of myself for not having a single cigarette.
May – This was the month when I posted the mosts posts ever this year. 57 to be exact. Busy month or what? I remember that this month was like a roller-coaster of emotions. Having had such an amazing month before made this months lowdowns harsh. Feelings I´d been pushing away finally got a grip on me. I started to grief a lot over my beloved little angel Harry who passed away tragically september 2011. At the same time I got myself a major crush on Rasmus Seebachs music to cope with all of those emotions. His music made me happier at times. And in all of that I just suddenly lost my own voice. Literally. It changed. I remember my friends, family and even the kids at work laughing at me for sounding so different. Even though it was a rough month I ended it with a big happy freaking moment. I finally booked a flight back to Australia. OMG!
June – RAIN, RAIN and even more RAIN. Was it really june or was is october? So to spice it up I just had to get a new haircut. Love that feeling! And that got me in a really good mood along with the best feeling ever. Knowing that your going to a new place. OK, not new but to your favorite place in the world. That feeling is awesome. I remember that i couldn’t stop talking about it. i was literally jumping up and down. I was so pumped. But then even more rain came and my lovely cousin came home for her yearly home visit from Thailand. The worst midsummer came along. Well it turned out just fine but not what I´d planned. A friendship faded when others grew stronger and all of a sudden I was on my way to Aussieland.
July – I couldn’t believe it. I was there. I was back. Everything looked the same as it had two years back. Was I dreaming? I had so much fun! I finally got to have my closure with that place. I met new friends, old friends, the family, traveled to new places and did a hell of a soul searching. This country is amazing. Even during winter.. Blue mountains, Melbourne, Manly, Sydney, Cronulla… Oh, just in time for my birthday the cute and talented Justin Bieber came to town. The whole country had Bieber fever. I just couldn’t miss out on the hysteria. I was smitten!
August – Swag came in to my vocabulary and I had a lot of studying to do so the blog was a bit left behind. Life came in between. Had to catch up with people and things after being away for almost the whole summer. I started work again, started a new distance course and got myself new obsessions. Yoga, Bieber, juicing, Pinterest and watching choreographs on YouTube. Have I mentioned Ian Eastwood enough times?
September – I started this month with a visit to the ER. Had gotten myself an bursitis infection in my right shoulder. Fun.. That pain was awful. I couldn’t lift my right arm. Such a weird feeling. Painful. Little did I know then that I was about to struggle with this the whole freaking fall. I still am time to time. Especially when I get stressed. In all of this I got more focused on my studies, raw food and just getting well.
October – Fall was finally here. Oh, I just love that time. All the color! But this was a difficult month. Struggling with the shoulder pain, studies, low downs and other stuff made me wanna stay home alone. i pushed myself to go out and meet friends and boy did I have fun when I did but then afterwards I felt exhausted. A struggling month. i wanted to do so much and had no energy. The first snow came and along with that I regained my energy at the end of the month. Just pin time of weekend marathons of fairs.
November –New age fair, Health fair, yoga dance festival, Swedish House Mafia and fotballgame all in the same month. What happened? October was dead compared to this. This was for sure one of the busiest months this year. This one went by so fast. No sleep at all! But boy did I have fun. BIG TIME! I then finally got an appointment with a physiotherapist for my shoulder. Thank goddess. I founded my company. Scary! Wihoou! And i started to sell my raw food balls at Ekotemplet. How did I survive this month?
December – The last month of the year. How quick can a year pass by? This month was all planned out. I was making lists of what I had to squeeze in between work. I studied like a freak for my exam in Physiology. I still don´t know the test results.. It’s a bit nerve-wracking. Did I pass or not? I remember that I just had to break lose from all the stress and plans to have some fun. I went out with my colleuges and had so much fun. I deserved it! And after that I made myself have a juice cleanse day. The first but not my last. Then the holiday came and here I am. Up north relaxing with my family. Spending quality time.
This was my year. Have you thought about yours? How has it been? What will you remember most? What stands out for you? What have you learned? Where have you been? What will you take with you into 2013?
