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!

Control your own mind

Free your mind
This is a huge issue for lots of people. Since we start growing up we learn from everyone around us to think about others. That is normal of course, and not always bad. But I found out that we do it wayyyy to much.. We are afraid to do are own things that we love because of the opinion of others.

“What would he say if I do this” “What would she do when I do that?” And that is so wrong! Why do we care? What are we afraid for? What is going to happen if a other person doesn’t like it or judge you? He/she shouldn’t control your life. If they don’t like it what you do, so what? They can do it different in their own way, right? Why let you ruin your life for someone who you probably don’t even know anymore in 10 years..

I always thought way to much about others. At my first school, (10 years ago) agh it was a hell. Everything you did was wrong, it brainwashed me completely. It wasn’t personal everybody did it to everyone at that school. And it changed me into something I am not. I bought clothes that I wouldn’t wear to school: “what if they say, what if they do”. And I see everywhere around me that people still do that, even unconscious.

STOP THAT!
Listen to this: If you want to do something that you really love, don’t ever let you stop. Maybe you see the problem bigger then it really is, if some one is being mean, don’t listen to it (unless your agree, then learn from it)! I know it isn’t that easy. But think why they say that to you.. Are they right about it, or is it just jealousy because you are happy? Most of the time it is the second one, people can be so mean.. and it is all about how you react on that. They say things to you and you’ve been hurt for a week but they forget in a day that they said that to you!

Have you ever been bullied and ask that person why he does that to you? Well I did and she could’t say a word anymore. And that is the thing, they aren’t bad people, I believe that no one is.. But most of the time they feel bad about something and they try to give you the same feeling and is it nothing personal.

22222

I see now when I started this blog that; most of the people are sooo sweet, they wish me all the luck in the world, try to help me and that is the best feeling ever. But also a few who doesn’t even react! There are always people who try to hurt your feelings or give you the feeling that you do wrong, no matter what you do, and you can not change that. But you can change you & your reaction on that.

If you live your own life, be happy for every body else for what they do, you will see that you are a huge step forward. Be nice to other people, give them compliments. If she has nice shoes, tell her. Give compliments as much as you can! Don’t fake it, but be real to people around you. Be nice and see the good in people and they see the good in you. If you see some one in the train with ugly hair, try to not think about the hair.. but think: “O, that’s a good book that is she reading”. If you hate that other people judge you all the time, stop do that to others. It sounds weird but it is like you don’t see the judgements anymore. What you give it what you get. Be positive even in the little things. Judging other people can be so hard, and completely unnecessary. Focus on your life, only yours! There is no need to destroy someone else’s dream. Just live your own. Make your life your own, enjoy every part of it and you will see the light in everything.

Ohja, and don’t feel bad now if you judged someone, maybe today.. You can not change the past, but change your future. Realize that you are so much better than that. Start living, you are amazing!

Love,

Isn’t this the best quote ever? A lot of people forget to be happy with things they already have.. (I do too) Think for a minute how much you appreciate the things that you have, the things that are normal for you to have it. Like your eyes, arms, legs, family, your heart, your body, everything you can’t live without. Human always forget that, they miss the things if they are gone, (like a lover haha!) but don’t think about it if they are there everyday, it is getting normal. Take a minute for yourself and realize how lucky you are with all the good things in your life. Only the positive and good things that you have.

Are there things missing that you want? Can you change that? Or is it to hard? Start with changing your mindset. Don’t think “O, it is too hard” start thinking “oke, this is going to be a exciting challenge” then you are already half way! Work for what you want and try your hardest. See it as fun, and not as hard.

YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT. Never give up!

That is not who I am..

haha

The last two days I was busy with finding inspiration for my photo shoot tomorrow. (This photo shoot is only for my blog.) But I still haven’t find anything helpful.. So i started thinking: “why do I see so many beautiful photo’s all over the internet from other bloggers, magazines, brands but not one of the photo’s I want to use as a inspiration for my photo’s?”

I came to this conclusion.. “It is not who I am..”

The models are so beautiful but they look so serious, I am far away from serious.. I always laugh (on pictures), I can’t help it. People who know me always say “you are such a happy person, always happy”. And yes I am, I can laugh about nothing and that is who I am. So i choose to not use inspiration from some one else, just go with the flow and be 100% ME.

vss

Be honest, why does everyone like the Victoria’s Secret show so much? Of course because of the models, they are so beautiful and the whole show is amazing. But look at those girls, walking / dancing / enjoying the show, they are confident. And I’m sure that’s what make this show so special. You can see that they having fun, they enjoy every step on the catwalk.

You can not change into some one that your not.. And you shouldn’t want to.
I can make beautiful serious pictures tomorrow but why? -A: I don’t feel comfortable with it and -B: I see someone else on it and I want to show the beauty of the real you. I do understand that a lot of people feel insecure about who they are and thinking: Do people like me? Am I good enough? Do they think I am fat? blabla.. I’m sure everybody has that sometimes.. But you can choose to let it come close to you and feel horrible about it, or you just let it go and listen to yourself. You can not change your personality for somebody else, if you do that it will make you unhappy, uncomfortable, insecure and that is nothing like you! It is what you let others do to you and change you.

You can make your good things better though. If you are funny or loyal to your friends or anything you really like about yourself, show that! And focus on that! Accept who you are and be happy with the things you DO have. That will make you so much more happier, just be you! And other people will see the beauty in you too, they will like you for who YOU are, and not for who you trying to be.

I was struggling with this issue for a very long time, I didn’t know who i was.. Me and my friends were always laughing, but if some one else was complaining about it I stopped and try to be serious. I felt really bad and thought that they didn’t like me. But the next day they didn’t even remember and i felt bad? Bit strange right? But hey! Why do I worry about it? They could also come to us and laugh too, but now I know that they felt bad. They hated school and I think it is being jealous in a kind of way that we had fun with everything we did. So changing who you are isn’t always good, you don’t need to change for somebody else, you can not make everybody happy and how good you are there are ALWAYS people who talk negative about you. But don’t let that come close to you and let that changing who you are.

I hope this will help you, it will be such a relief. Stop thinking for others, be real with yourself. You are the one who has to live with it for the rest of your life and there are many people who like you for who you are.

Love,
