SUPERFOOD: Almonds

large

Nuts, you can see it as a good snack or as candy… you have them in all tastes and sizes. But I personally never liked them, not necessarily the taste but how you chew it. But my colleague told me a while ago that almonds are very good as a afternoon snack and that you can call them superfood. But I didn’t do much with that information because I just didn’t like nuts and there are many superfoods I eat daily. But than I read on the instagram from a girl with amazingly long, big, shiny hair that she eat many almonds for her hair, and that changes things. Superfood + superhair! So I did my research  and run to the ‘nuts store’ to try the almonds.

They taste soooo different than normal nuts! Taste like vanilla or something?! And they are full of vitamins & minerals and good for the heart, brains and your digestion. If you make a routine from a daily handful of almonds (about 24 pieces) it can help to lower your “bad” cholesterol, reduce, the risk of heart disease and diabetes. There are many more reasons why they are healthy for you, but these must be enough to add almonds to your daily routine.

* You can eat them as a afternoon snack like I do, or you can mix them in a smoothie, biscuits or even cupcakes, you can make almond butter or almond milk. There are many things you can make with the delicious almonds. Let’s be creative!

Free your thoughts

eYesterday I was talking with my bfffff, and it was about being honest. It is the hardest thing in some situations but also the easiest. We all have million silent questions in a day, some silly onces like “Why is she wearing that jacket with those shoes?!” or harder onces like “why isn’t he answering?”, “why people say those things about me?” and you can keep thinking, making up answers for yourself, “ahh probably because…” You waste your time, as long as you keep guessing and keep the questions for yourself, you would never know the answer.

What about just ask the person what’s going on? YESSSS, that is the better option! I’ve noticed that so many people are afraid to walk to the person and ask the questions that are stuck in their head. Why is that so scary?

tumblr_n3z4e6SMBO1qjb0reo1_500I like to experiment with my deep thoughts about life, also with this subject; I started with “investigate” how many times people keep questions to theirselves or act like they don’t care about several things. Than I try out how people react when I asked the questions that pop op in my head, without making up a weird story to get the answer. Just simple “what is the reason that you lie?”, “why do you behave like that?” or “Why do you make a fight instead of asking her?” <- CLASSIC!

That was funny, because the reactions were very different, you can see how people really are. Most of them started laughing, they liked that I asked straight to the point and answered the question honest… it solved more issues than I expected. But other people were shocked or lie… “Like omg why you asked?” Or “no, I’ve never said that”

Who looked like a fool here? Me because I was honesty asking what I wanted to know, or them because they got caught?

It is such a relief to say what is on your mind, no matter how hard it is at the moment. If you don’t want to do something, say it instead of doing things that you don’t want to and screw it up. Ask that person what is going on instead of being bitchie and making fights for nothing. Ask your boyfriend about the girl instead of thinking that he is cheating. Most of the time things looks worser then they really are do not get fooled by that. Get real to others and especially to yourself.

You are a magical creature, with a lot of power… Use the power that you have for more amazing things.

 

Loving life,

Feel freeee

I found this photo on tumblr and I had to read it a few times before I could say the word out loud. But I definitly feel this way, you recognise it too?
The desire for freedom, in any way you want. You can talk about freedom like relationship or feel free when your finished school. But I have the desire for freedom with living and exploring the world.
Last week I had the feeling that I was locked up. I don’t know were it came from, but without thinking I walked out of the house. No phone, no keys, no destination or purpose, after a few minutes I realised how free I already am. There are serious people, living on this earth, who can not walk out of their houses like that just for a walk. People, even little children, who has to work day and night. People who are stuck because of other people, sickness or many other reasons. And that made me think, I am already this free… I am 21 and I can do things that some people who are 91 years old never get the chance for. This is the ”new century”. I can book a flight right now and be in America tomorrow, or take the car and go roadtripping to Europe. We are already so much more free than 50 years ago, but why do we still feel this desire to more freedom, and aren’t we don’t JUST GO! Spread your wings, do things you never expected from yourself, make yourself proud and make the most out of life because now you get the chance!

Love,

Each time you love, love as deeply as if it were forever

Valentinesday; Love, love, love…

For some people the best day of the year and other people hate it. Yesterday I was one of the people who said; “I hate it” but this morning when I was on the road and saw a amazing Sunrise, I realised that it isn’t all about being in love with someone. Valentinesday is about everything you like and everyone that you love, and showing how much you care.

Every year my best-friend and my grandparents sent me a beautiful valentine card and they never miss a year! Isn’t that the most beautiful gift you can give somebody?! They spend their time and energy to sent you a card for letting you know that they love you. It makes me so happy to open the cards, like little presents. And that is what real love is, valentine is not only boyfriend-girlfriend relationships but everything that makes you smile and every relationship you can imagine! If you like to ride a bike go ride that bike and feel the happiness. If you like flowers, buy them for yourself and enjoy the color, smell everything you like about it.

Make yourself happy today and don’t wait for others to make you happy, and… don’t expect to much from a guy! Show people who you love that you love them more then anything, and enjoy the things that are special to you.
