Gentle reminder

In a few days, it is once again International Women’s Day. With that said I want to remind you of what I wrote last year, after seeing too much of expressions of men’s gratitude and love for women in social media, much inline of the same spirit as Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. For me…

I couldn’t help myself

Last week spring arrived and with very high temperatures Now the weather is back to below zero during the nights. And even if the sun has been shining today and the temperature in the sun is quite OK, the wind chill and the shadows are not warm at all. But still I couldn’t help myself….

What’s the difference?

Isn’t it strange? That we encourage some with their dreams but not others? Why is it OK to become a doctor or a lawyer, but very seldom we don’t greet people with the same enthusiasm when someone says they what to pursue a career in basketball or become a painter? When those ambitions are mentioned…

Jackpot

This weekend was a full jackpot in “adult points” – freely translated from Wikipedia “Adult points is a humous concept about personal characteristics and actions that characterize life as an adult.“ Naturally, being close to the 50, I and the Mr are more than adults, even if we still want to question that fact once…

A couple of years back I had an assignment at a customer who was in the process of implementing “a self managing organisation”. I don’t know if this post has anything to do with the fact that the company was exploring self management and going through a transformation, but one epiphany during this time was…

The Mr and I try to catch up every now and then. In a more luxurious way than just over the dinner table or during a dog walk. Not that the luxury is necessary, but it doesn’t hurt. As we haven’t done/travelled anywhere in 2020 due to covid, we decided to treat ourselves with an…

Wanting & needing

This year, on the last day of June, it will be 5 years since we moved into our new house. A house somewhat original but still very common. Already when we moved in, I had decided to build a new one as soon as the kids are out. Why? Because I want more from a…

Freezing

Sweden is delivering cold weather, several degrees below 0 and -12 C several nights in a row. Even soccer practice is being cancelled next week, I don’t think that happened for 15 years. But EVERYONE is winter swimming. Without having a sauna! I’m not tagging along to that trend (either) Well, nothing to do just…

One thing

There is one thing I never want to be without in my professional life. Flexibility. Like the possibility to take the dog (and the Mr) for a somewhat longer walk on days like this.

Beautiful day

Today I’m going to enjoy the beautiful weather and contemplate on the things I’m thankful over. Outside in the beautiful weather.
