To teach, or study ? 📚

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

This year is the first year since I started to work as a teacher where I closely haven’t been teaching. The reason is very easy at the same time a bit “complicated”. The reason is called Corona 🙄. And Corona is complicated, the virus seems to be complicated, the Covid19 too, but most of all the living- and working situations this virus has created for so many, many people 😔.

I can start teaching again now, I’m allowed to have students in my home now as long as the different restrictions are followed. But I’m not sure if I want to start teaching again 📚.

From March this year and until now there hasn’t been very much “face to face” teaching, or classroom teaching so many places in Spain. Only the kindergartens open up a few months ago.

I’m not worried about getting the coronavirus by having students in my home, I can get the virus a lots of different and other places. But it has been a bit challenging to have some students in my home. And I don’t know if I want to have this challenges anymore.

Most of my students has been great, but there’s always some souls that create bit a challenged situations. For me it has been students that are not showing up, not letting me know they are not showing up so I just sit there and waiting for them, students that are not prepared for the lessons, haven’t done their “homework” for lessons I have prepared, and then students that are not paying for the lessons, if they are coming.

Maybe this sounds like small challenges, and in general it is, but not for me when this teaching situation is/ has been my income. I’m actually losing money ( and the time I’m losing when Im sitting there and waiting for someone that not shows up), and I have, unfortunately, lost a bit money and time, on this teaching work during the years I have been working as a private teacher here in Spain.

I really like my job as a teacher and I really like to teach,and in general I really like my students too,- but not to much when it is about losing money and time. Not when the teaching situation is actually a part of my job and income.

Already in the end of January this year I needed to find some other income solutions that replaced my teaching income,- and I’m actually fine with the solutions I have at the moment. I enjoy my costumer service agent job, and I like my online freelance texting, chatting and writing work from my home. So,- maybe I choose to just continue doing this instead. Instead of being a teacher again for a while?

There’s also another thing,- I want and actually need to learn the Spanish language in a proper way now. It’s on time. But to be able to do that, I need to study the language, learning, reading and use my time on the studies 📚. And like everyone else I also have just 24 hours during a day to do different things and stuffs in my life. Its actually not, unfortunately, time, place and space for doing “all and everything” I want to do. It’s about priorities,- special when I don’t have my “pocket filled up with money” 😊. That’s the way it is,- and it is what it is 😊.

I still have a week to make my decision for what to do. To start up again as a teacher or not. In one way I have probably already made my decision,- but at the same time I know there’s one student that wants to take this Bergenstest in Madrid during next Spring, it is a test similar with the Oxford exam, but just for the Norwegian language instead. And I have the possibility for helping this student to do this.

This student wants to work in HR and are studying for that too. And then it is a big pluss to be able to work on and with different languages as well. Also to be able to understand and use the Norwegian language, because there’s a lots of Norwegian people working outboard from Norway in so many different countries around the world.

The thing is just that I know this student is one of those who are not always showing up, not always are prepared and not always give me a notice if he/she needs to cxl the lesson. I know those things because I have already been teaching this student for a while. Except from this year,- natural enough. And I have also told the student a couple of times that I can’t continue being the teacher if the “teaching- situation” are like this.

On the other hand,- this student can have growing a bit during this “Corona- months”, and understand that this kind of “behaviour” is not acceptable anymore. But I don’t know.

I’m a very patient person, as person and also as a teacher. In general I think it is a good habit to have, but not always. And I feel my patient as a patient teacher is starting to “get over” a bit now. I also know I’m a good and creative teacher,- but maybe for another time?

And it’s actually very important for me to learn and study the Spanish language too now. But I don’t think I will have the time or energy to both be a teacher and a student as well as I also need to do my jobs, and hopefully start “living” a bit, do my own stuff and things like spending time with my friends, start up my regular workout routines again, paint a bit, knit a bit, “run” “flinging” a bit too. And be a mammi for my children in a new way and direction.

So,- am I going to be a teacher or a student this Autumn? 📚 I think I have made up my mind, and I think I have a tiny solution too,- but I’m going to use the next week now to think things through,- at least as best as I can 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.

See you soon, – I hope 😊.

Some of my creative teaching materials I’m using when I teach my students Norwegian 📚. I can also use them to study the Spanish language if I want 😊.

I’m not sure if I should start up again as a private teacher now during this Autumn, or use my creative teaching materials to start studying instead 📚. Maybe I have already made up my mind for what I need and want to do,- but I’m going to use the next days to think things through anyway 😊.

A past life? 🤔💚

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you all 🧡

We humans are just different and therefore we also think differently and practice differently. We have different religions and beliefs, and different ways of practicing our faith.  One is not more correct than the other.  We humans are just different and therefore we also think and belive differently and practice differently as well.

Some don’t believe in “anything”, others a lot, and in a lots of things too. (I’m probably in the last category here…😊).

Religion and beliefs are also often associated with different cultures and traditions, and have their development based on both culture and traditions.

For me, my religion and what I believe in is in general a very private matter.  That means I do not share so much neither here in my blog nor with others about what I believe in, how I believe or how I practice my faith.  But something I do share because it sometimes belongs to the action in the text I write. Or it is a subject I do discuss with close friends, or my children.

I believe in different forms, and ways, and I can practice my believe with pray and actions. I do believe there’s something bigger then me, and I do believe there’s more between heaven and earth then we human can understand. I do believe there’s something we just can’t explain, it jis “are there”. I’m not sure if I believe in a past life,- but I’m going to tell you a story about “past life”, because I have been thinking more and more about this story lately.

Before I did travel (or moved ) to Spain I did visit a clairvoyant, or actually it was not me that visit this clairvoyant at all, it was “the ex”, “the bump”, the man that just dropped me off in Spain. I was just with him to this clairvoyant. I don’t know what he was asking this clairvoyant about, not either what advice or “answer” he got. I know he did visit this clairvoyant now and the for getting some business advice. “The ex”/”the bump” was a business man. And not a good one….maybe I tell you that story an other day….if or when I’m more ready for that.

I got an offer to “be read for” when he was there, and I said “yes, why not”. I have a believe that some people are wiser on a different level then others. That they actually can “see and read, talk with someone in an other universe”. Not all and everyone that say they can do this can do it, not all and everyone that say they is a clairvoyant is a real clairvoyant, some are just using clairvoyant as business, not for helping or giving advice, just earning money.

Why I do believe that some have an other contact with the universe then “the rest of us” is because I have my own experiences from this, and even in the Bible there are prophets. And different traditions and cultures also are using a kind of clairvoyant to getting different advice, it can be an shaman or it can be a witch. I don’t think they have this different kinds of clairvoyant if it was just “nothing in it”. I think they are there in the different religions and beliefs for a reason. I think it is a reason why there are some real clairvoyant in our world.

And a prophet is just a religious name for a clairvoyant,- but is still someone who could look into the future, one who received his warnings from a divine power. So in it’s own way a prophet is a kind of a clairvoyant, just in the religious perspective.

My story today feel actually very private to tell, but since the story has dropped into my mind much more lately I have chosen to tell you about this “experience”, this story. But before I continue I want to tell you that my children knows the story. They have heard the story long time before you, because in a strange way it is about them too. And we do talk about and discuss different things,- me and my young adults children, also about religion and beliefs. And I also need to say there’s actually nothing private in the story, non very private or personal “happenings” at all. Actually it is a very ordinary and boring story. But it still feels for me very private and personal to share this story.

This clairvoyant I did meet 7 years ago could tell me that I had been living in Spain in two different lifes. To be honest, I don’t remember very much about the conversation, except from this story about a past life in Spain. Because it made an impression, and I was on my way to Spain with two of my three children at that time too.

The clairvoyant could tell me that my children has been with me both time, but in different “concept”. And that me and my children has always been and still was very connected and close to each other. ( …well I do know we are very close, he didn’t need to tell me that 😊). I don’t remember anymore what “life” I did live first or last form a past life in Spain, just that in some or another way my children was together with me. And they still are in this life ❤.

In both life we has been living close to the cost where I m living now, even more and less in the same area. In one of my past life my two youngest children, my son in the middle and my daughter was my children there as well, and my son was older and my daughter younger. I was a widow, we did live a normal life, not rich, not poor, we just lived in South of Spain. Non big happenings, no big events, just a normal, quiet life, lived until I was around 70- 80, and died of ages.

In my other life here in Spain, my oldest son was my big brother. We was very close. We did also lived more and less in the same area as we/me are living now. But he did help me and my love to escape from my dad and into Seville, and he did stay with us in Seville. My love was a poor man, and my dad was a very rich man, so our love at that time was not good, it was forbidden. Me and my love didn’t became very rich, and I did die of a disease when I was around 40 years old.

The clairvoyant told me that because of my past lifes it was the reason why I was so “attracted” to Spain, and it would not be a problem for me to learn Spanish either, because it was already “in me”. Well, – so fare that was not correct about the language , – but I think I know why it’s difficult for me to “connect” with the Spanish language.

Like I told you,- I don’t remember what past “life” was first and last. And that does irritated me a bit now, that I don’t remember 😊. Did I first live here with my oldest son/ big brother or with my two younger children? The clairvoyant did tell me, but I can’t remember.

I have been thinking a bit about this story lately. Not because I’m believe, because I’m actually not sure what I do, if I believe I have been living here before, in a past life, in two past life, or not. Since I’m not sure I probably have a kind if tiny believe, and because this story has “popped up” more and more lately I maybe do believe in my own way?

So why have I been thinking about this story lately? It is because of what’s happen in my life. All my three children has lived together with me here in Spain, during this period for soon 7 year. First it was me and my two youngest children, then my son in the middle moved to Norway for a while and my oldest son and my daughter lived together with me. Then there has been some mixing, who has lived here, but never all three together, and never just my sons together with me either. This year I have been living together with my oldest son for a while, and soon I’m going to live together with my two youngest children again.

Sometimes I feel there’s a kind of “connection I don’t get” with this moving in/ moving out/ moving in again. I know it is very natural reason why my oldest son did live together with me for three months this year, and it is a very natural reason why my two youngest children are going to live with me now. Normal reasons under a “new normal life” because of the different changes and challenges the coronavirus and Covid19 have done to our society. Covid19 is a disease…..and my oldest son has been very worried for me when it comes to this disease. He can’t explain why he is so worried, because I actually do live very carefully when it comes to do my best to avoid coronavirus. And he knows that. All he can say is that he is worried because I’m his mammi.

I did think a tiny bit about this story about a past life in Spain before I did move to Spain, but life, “the planned life” here in Spain did changed so fast that my focus on this story has slept my mind, until now. The focus has been to survive and do the best if a living situation I was not aware of should happen.

Like I said,- I feel there’s “something here” I don’t get, but should have got. The connection has something to do with the story this clairvoyant told me about my past life. Difficult to explain, and special for me in English too, my second language, not my first. And it is also difficult to explain for my self “what it is” this “something”.

I feel I do live in “a kind of a spiral” at the moment, or have actually been living in a kind of a spiral during the last years, but just after I did moved to Spain. And slowly I’m getting closer to the end of this spiral, closer to something new I have not a clue what is, and at the same time, I’m not sure if I’m in the middle of the spiral at the moment, or closer to the end.

I haven’t been visiting Seville. The clairvoyant told me that when I did visit this town I would “recognize and remember”. And to be honest,- that’s actually one of the reasons why I haven’t visited Seville, because I’m a bit “scared” for what can be “popping up” into my mind if I visit this town.

And my Spanish is not good at all, so the language hasn’t come “easy” for me like the clairvoyant told me. I’m not “connected” to the Spanish language. At the same time, I think the language can come easy to me if I give it a try, give it time and offer, choose to work a bit more with the language then I have been doing. Maybe it is “in me” if I take a bette look? I think I’m just a bit worried, to be honest, like I’m when it comes to visit Seville. But this “worriedness” has dropped to my mind just during the last days. It can be the reason why I’m actually struggling with the Spanish language, because I’m worried.

I don’t know if my text did make any sense for you today. But this is something that is on my mind very often lately, this story about a past life in Spain, this feeling of “something I have in front of me” but I can’t “catch” it or get it, what this “something” is, even I in a strange way know it is “there” in front of me, some kind of changes, and even some kind of “answers” to questions I don’t know I have.

I don’t think or feel it is something bad, actually, I feel it will be more like a kind of “solution”. A kind of a “relief” from or of something. I do feel it is something good that’s “on the way in the end of this spiral”. But I have no idea what “all this is about”. Not a clue.

What I did write about today feels very private and personal, like I in a strange way did “let you into my life” without actually doing it at the same time. At the same time,- there’s actually nothing special with this text, not any big events or happenings, just a story that has given me many thoughts lately, and a very strange feeling.

This is my thoughts, my feelings at the moment, and I don’t have any natural explanations why I feel like I do. But in some or another way,- I hope my text did give you some kind of sense. At least for me to just write it down, tell you, share, did gave me and does give me a strange kind of “peace”. A peace I also can’t explain 😊.

So I just want to wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡,- and read my a private and personal sharing,- without any big “events” in, without any special happenings 😊

See you soon 😊

My plan was actually to have a photo of me and my three children to this text, but in a strange way that didn’t felt correct today 😊. Even my children gave me a permission for a photo I could use 😊

It’s not “all and everything” we can explain, not in our life, not in our beliefs 💚. Someone told me 7 years ago that I have been living in Spain in two past life. I’m not sure what to believe, but what I do know,- there’s a lots of things in life that’s difficult to give any good and understandable explanation too. Special when you can’t see it, not touch it, hear it or smell it. Just feel it inside you 💚. My text today feels very private and personal to share, at the same time there’s not very much private and personal information about me in it 🧡 .

I feel I’m socializing “all day long” 🎧💻😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 🧡 I hope all is fine with you all 🧡

I like my jobs, both of them 🎧💻. And I’m grateful and feeling so lucky that I have a job in this days 💚. That’s not any of course in today’s society, as a result and a consequence of the coronavirus and the pandemic. Many people have lots their jobs, also two of my children. Both my son in the middle and my daughter got the messenge in May that they will lose their jobs during this summer 😔. That’s also one if the reason why they are moving into me during the next days and week. It will be cheaper for them to stay here together with me for a while 😊.

My daughter has been incredibly lucky, because she already got an new job, and have already started up in that one too. But still she moving in together with me, so she can save some money under this strange circumstance we all are living in.

My son in the middle had a plan, and that was to have between 6 to 12 months leave without pay from his job here in Spain, travel to Norway, live together with his dad, and take the driver license in Norway, and then travel back and continue his job here in Spain. That plan did change a bit. He is still going to Norway, he is still going to live with his dad, he is still going to take the driving licence, but it’s not sure he will come back to Spain, at least not for a while, and maybe not for living, but at least on holiday 🧡. He will have his work until the end of July, and then there’s not any more job left for him here….at the moment. But as we all know,- thing can change very fast.

I have no reason to complain at all, I like my jobs, and I have work to do every day, 7 days a week 💚, I have a fixed contract as a costumer service agent, and I like my customer service agent job too. The customers in general are very pleasant and happy. I also do like my ” online health care and social care” job, but I haven’t any fixed contract there. And there I can meet many different personal- and private situations of more and less any kind. The clients are different, and I got a lots of different questions during a shift, both about health as well as in different social cases.

I have also the possibility to take some freelance writing work, and at the moment I take as much as I can and have the possibility to do 😊. And there’s some students that have asked me about Norwegian lessons during this Autumn, so I see if I starts up again with some students.

I have nothing to complain about at all,- I feel very lucky and grateful 💚. It is just one year ago I was without work and without any regular income,- so I know very well how it is to not have a job, to not have a regular salary, to not know how to manage to pay the next bill.

If I should mention one tiny little negative thing with my costumer service agent job and “online health care job” it is that I feel I’m socializing “all day long” when I’m at work. I speak with costumer on the phone, and do I chatt with clients online 😊.

So, unfortunately, when I’m finish with my work during a day I’m not the best chatter or texter online with my friends, or to take a phonecall for a talk to some of my friends or family. Because I have already been doing that for some hours in my job.

And I don’t like to be sourrende by to many people either, “all the time”. I’m a person that needs some time on my own. Be just alone for a tiny little while.

But that’s after I have been working, and it’s because I feel I have I have been socializing “all day long” already and need this time on my own after finish a working day 😊.

Because even if I don’t see the costumer or clients I talk with them in one or another way, we are in contact, we are in a way socializing. And that’s one of the way the social life works to now at days, through different social media communication channels.

I like to be sourrende by my friends and family, but I like to feel I have the energy and something “to give” when I’m sourrende by them,- and then I need to “fill up” my “energy- storage” with using some time just on me, to just be alone 😊. Sounds selfish? I do feel like that sometimes, that I’m selfish when I just spend time on my own, on my self, but I know it is important for me to do it. If not I haven’t very much to “offer” and “give” to my family and friends. So, unfortunately, I can be a bit a- social now and then, and it’s not everyone who understands that. But it is because I feel I have been socializing “all day long” at my job, and just need a timeout before I can socializing again 😊.

Do you have it like that, like me? You need some time on your own now and then? Or do you need to be sourrende by people to feel you get the energy level up again? We are all different, and we get our energy level up in different ways too 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡

See you soon 😊

My online chat job- and the the queue is empty for a moment, and me,- need a timeout after socializing “all day long” at work 😊

I’m very lucky, and I feel very grateful for my jobs 💚. I have nothing to complain about, but I do feel like I’m socializing “all day long” when I’m working, even when I don’t see the costumers or clients, just listen to them during the phone 🎧, or chatting/ texting with them online 💻 😊.

Happiness and successfulness ☀️😊🥂

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this time we all are going through,- together 🧡

Happiness and successfulness is that the same thing,- and can we be, feel and have both at the same time? 😊 I think so,- at least I feel I have both in my life, but in different ways and areas 🥰.

Happiness and joy belongs together, as well as successfulness and proud in its own way do too. At the same time it is a difference between happiness and successfulness. And what’s make me feel happiness is not sure is the same as make you feel happiness 😊. And what make me feel successfulness is not sure makes you feel successfulness.

The different concepts are also defined and used slightly differently in psychology, religion and philosophy.  At the same time they are connected to the feeling of joy 🥰. I’m not going to use a lots of time or have any kind of lecture to and for you about this different concepts,- just a tiny general “understanding” for trying to explain them in a short version. And when that’s said, – in general those different concepts are experiences a bit differently from person to person, and can be very individual,- at the same time as we in one way have common understanding of the various concepts. And it is actually a big “concept” this happiness and successfulness,- and I have tried to make my text as small as possible,- even it is so much more I wanted to put in it, to write about 😊.

Let’s starts with joy,- because joy is a condition that triggers the feeling of happiness. The feeling of joy is also individual, because what’s make me feel joy is not sure makes you feel joy. But in general joy is tho have a positive spirituality. Joy can’t be can not be measured, and has nothing to do with “acidity”, because, everyone will at one or more times become angry, sad and tired, but can still have a positive spirituality on life.

Joy is an attitude, while happiness is more about what happens, an event that creates or brings happiness.

Joy is more independent of the different circumstances you are in and a setting. Happiness is about what happens and is a feeling.

In general I’m a positive (and happy) person, but I can still feel on a lots of sadness and pain inside me. But I like to smile, I like to laugh and I have my own “mantra”, a “mantra” I have also try to teach me children,- they have heard it a lots of time when they was growing up as well as now. And I do know they all three are using this “mantra” now in their own way 😊.

My ( it has also actually become my kids too 😊) “mantra” is “it all will be fine”, “its going to be fine”. And in its own way it does, it goes fine, and it helps to “say” it,- even when there’s times when it’s very difficult to believe it. I still tell myself “it’s going to be fine”,- and little by little is like my mind starting to believe in it,- and things get a bit more easier in life. But like I mention, – its days where I don’t believe that, but I still use my “mantra” 😊.

Success means progress, and being proud is a feeling you can get when you experience progress in different goals you set, or different jobs and tasks you do.  Pride is about special moments, the moment your goal was accomplished in a way that gives you pleasure, gives you a sense of having accomplished something.  It may be small and mundane things, or larger things that take an exam, have done a great snd big job.  This is also an individual experience – although we, the general, have an understanding of what the terms mean.

Many associate success with money, power, admiration from others, various titles, status symbols, materialistic things While for others, success is a balance in life, good health, family and close friends, an inner peace of life, intrinsic value, dreams and goals achieved  , or something as “easy” as having a place to live.

One successfulness is not more “correct” or “important” then the other,- it’s all about what kind of successfulness that’s important for the person 😊.

Feeling proud and being proud is also individual, but the relationship depends on success, and what success each individual feels they have achieved.

Synonyms that are often associated with pride and proud are fame, conquest, luck, comfort, fulfillment, achievement, prestige, realization, satisfaction, triumph, wealth, well-being.  But also terms like arrogant, being best, arrogance and conceit. For some this will be some negative terms, for others positive terms. Still it’s a individual “experiences”,- at the same time as it can give outsiders a negative impression.  But after all, it is mostly about one’s self and one’s own success – although for some it is a success to find that others “look up to one” for a variety of reasons.

Anyway,- in my life I have some “settings” that’s make me feel joy and happiness, successfulness and proud at the same time,- and the biggest one and most important for me are my three children 🥰. I have some others too,- but these three makes me feel an incredibly joy, happiness, successful and pride at the same time 🥰.

Imagine, – I have been able to raise these three children more and less on my own,- and it went so well too, at least in my mind and my eyes.

And in this “case, setting and situation” I actually don’t think and care so much about what “all and everyone” think about my happiness and successfulness. In other cases, settings and situations I need to admit I can care a bit what “someone else is thinking about my successfulness”,- unfortunately,- because i I know I shouldn’t. But when it comes to my children I don’t care what other thinks about me as a mammi, or my happiness and successfulness. Because I know what and where I done my mistakes as a mammi,- but I also know what incredibly happiness and successfulness these three children gives me ❤. And that’s actually something no one can be able to take away from me 🧡.

Me and my three incredibly fantastic children in April 2017 🥰. I’m allowed to use this photo,- I have asked my children about permission 😊

When I think about my children I’m smiling, and feel just so incredibly grateful and happy. When I see and meet them, spending time together with them I’m smiling too, and I’m so incredibly proud of each and everyone one 🥰. “My dramaking”, “My flowerpower child” and “My butterfly”. This is my favourite happiness and successfulness in my life ❤. But I have some others things too that both make me feel happiness, successfulness and proud,- at the same time as I have in a strange way no “needs” to tell about them 😊. And my other kind happiness and successfulness are in a bit different “level” in my life them my children,- but of course, still very important for me,- because they also create my life 😊. My happiness and my successfulness.

So,- my three children gives me joy and happiness, successfulness and pride at the same time ❤. They are my favourite happiness and successfulness in my life 🥰.

My attitude in general is joy, something Im grateful for, – we all have different attitudes,- and one of them is joy,- so I choose joy as one of my attitudes,- something that makes things a bit easier in my life, also happier,- even it can be “very dark and challenging” sometimes too 😳. And,- theres different things that’s make me happy and gives me this incredible great feeling of happiness 🥰. My jobs makes me feel happiness, and my close and good friends, both in Norway and Spain, makes me feel happiness 💚.

I feel happiness when I have a day of from work and can “help the once that doesn’t anything” (this is a Norwegian expression, but maybe it’s use in other countries too). When I can stay in the sun with music on my ears and a good book to read I feel happiness, joy and grateful. Not so much successfulness, but at the same time I can do that too 😊.

I also feel happiness when I can buy something I have been saving money for,- like yesterday I could buy a pavilion and some chair cushions for the garden furniture that is to my patio outside. I even could order it delivered to my home. Maybe it doesn’t sound very much for others, and its actually not an very exclusive pavilion or fancy pillows either, not even very expensive, not even “fashion or stylish”,- it all are actually very, very ordinary, – but for me it felt just so great to be able to do this 😊. And it made me happy too 😊.

I have been saving money for this since the beginning of March, actually before Spain went into lock down. So I felt so happy yesterday when I was able to buy this now 😊. And I can create a very cozy atmosphere outside in my patio for myself, my children and my friends 😊. We use a lots of our time outside during the summertime here in Spain,- and then it is important for me to create a place where it’s nice, joyful and relaxing to stay 😊. I will show you when it’s finished,- but yes,- a thing like that makes me feel happiness, but not successfulness. Or maybe a bit successfulness too,- because it was a goal to manage this,- and yesterday I was one step closer to create a very cozy, homely atmosphere outside, on step closer to my garden goal. ( I have different goals in different areas in my life- reaches step by step, little by little) 🌺.

Yes,- money makes me happy, actually not so successful, but very happy. Some will not be agree with me that “money makes happiness”,- but money in general makes a life a bit easier, – then also happier for many people,- also me 😊. And I don’t feel on any quilt for feeling that 😊. My next goal is to save money so I can go to the hairdresser, and get rid of my quarantine hair 😅. Then buy a new computer and go to the dentist, pay out some dept I have, and be able to travel to Norway for visiting my family and friends there as well as pick up our things and stuffs and get it all to Spain 😊,- but little by littl, stepby step,- I will not manage”all at once”,- it all will take some time to manage 😊. So yes,- money gives me a kind of happiness because I will be able to do a couple and different of things with the money. Things that gives me something and means something for me.

But it’s not just money that makes me feel happiness. I’m a bit more “complicated” then that 😅. The money was an example. I feel happiness when I meet my friends, and I feel happiness and when I manage to do different tasks in my life. I feel happiness when I manage my different goals, or just doing my hobbies like knit or paint. When the water flows in my shower I’m happy too.

I feel happiness when the sun is shining and I feel happiness when it goes well for someone in their life,- like a friend of mine just got his own apartment. I felt so happy for him 😊.

I was happy and proud when I had completed my different studies, and I have felt, and still do, happy and successful when I’m able to get a job I want to have,- and even do my job in a good way.

There are so many different things in my life that makes me happy and gives me the feeling of success.

But I need to admit that before, when I was younger, I thought that to be “successful” ment “the way other looked at me and my life”. What I did manage and could “show”, even a title or a kind of “power” in the different society, or a lots of money on the bank account, a big business and so on. I don’t care about that anymore. My success happens every day, every week, for every small goals I manageto do is a kind if successfulness for me,- and as long as it feels like a success for me,- that’s actually all that’s matter for me now 😊. And my tiny small daily “successes” makes me feel happy 😊.

I’m happy when I read a book, and I can feel of success because I was able to buy the book. I can feel of gratefulness and successfulness, even be proud, because I can read the book. All this things, just around this book, are actually not one of course for so many people in the world 📚.

So yes,- I do feel happiness and successfulness in so many small and different situations in my life,- that’s all that’s matter for me,- because my happiness and my successfulness creates my life 😊🧡.

I hope you in some or another way feel happiness and successfulness in your life 🧡. Happiness can be a book, and successfulness can be able to both buy the book and read the book. Happiness and successfulness, – we can choose to create it in our life, it’s depends how we define happiness and successfulness for us self,- and successfulness doesn’t need to be a title or a lot of money in the bank account, or have a lots of power in the society, or have a big business. It is something, some goals you manage to do in your life,- and then again can gives this great feeling of happiness and successfulness for you 🧡. Well,- at least I choose to believe so 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊

Happiness and successfulness is different from person to person. What makes me happy, and gives me the feeling of success is not sure is the same as for you 😊. A book to read can gives happiness, and be able to both buy the book and read the book can be a and feel like success for someone else 📚. I think the important thing with “happiness and successfulness ” is as long as it makes you feel happy and successful. Do you want to see my favourite happiness and successfulness in my life? You find it in my post 🥰.

No specific topic, niche or genre yet,- just the life, my life, me,- and I m totally fine with that 💛 😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this time we all are going through,- together 🧡

I have been blogging and posting for over a year now,- and I have also been reading more from others blogs then I have done before 😊. I’m following different kinds of people and blogs with different kinds of niche, topic and genre,- and it’s very interesting to read about so many different things 😊. I do learn a lot about many things and people, cultures and traditions, something I like 😊. And many bloggers I’m following haven’t either a very specific topic, niche or genre,- at the same time they have,- because they write about their life 😊.

In the beginning when I did started to post my blog I did stress my self up very much with special one thing,- to find a special niche, topic or genre for my blog 😊. Because “everywhere” I did read about blogging I did also read about how important this topic, niche and genre for a blog was. Of course it’s important for some, I can see that,- but at the same time we are all different,- and I think for me, I just need to do this blogging in my way,- because then it’s “me”, it’s more “correct” for me to do it this way,- a bit like “step by step”, and actually let the readers just be a part of my very normal life ….well,- normal for me because this is the life I know, and it’s on its own way a normal life for me.😊.

I can’t follow “a blogging manual” for how to do “my blogging and my writing”,- but I can use some tips and advice now and then for how to try to do the best out of my writing ,- but still do it in my own way and tempo 😊.

I haven’t find any special niche, topic or genre to my blog yet,- except it’s about myself and my life ,- and that should probably be more then enough “topic, niche, genre and theme”,- and it will maybe just be that way too, without any very specific niche, topic, genre or theme, at the same time it is,- it’s me and my life 😊.

Because in my life I have different things and stuffs that’s important for me, just important in different directions 😊. I can’t choose one over another. I can’t choose to say to paint is more important for me then to knit, because both is important for me to do 🎨🧶. Food is important for me to eat, and also I like to make food, and I do eat every day 😊. And,- work out is important for me and my health 🤸‍♀️,- both my body and my mind 😊. I like to do my workout in general, but not always. There are days I just do my work out just because I know it’s necessary for my body and my mind, not because I want to do it. So my “soul” is not so much “into” workout and exercises that I actually can use that as a specific genre for my blog.

My children,- well they are the most important “ingredients” in my life, and to be a mammi has been my “identity” for over 26 years, and even they are growing up and moving out, Im still a mammi. And my children still have a habit to move back home again now and then too 😅. But I don’t want to and I can’t use my children as a topic for my blog. But when that’s written,- to be a mammi for my three children has created me to the person I’m today 😊.

My jobs are important for me, and my friends as well, but both in very different directions 💛. And I have and also are going to continue to write about job, work and education,- but not so much that I can use it as a topic for my blog 😊. And my friends,- they are a part of my life and will be mention in my blog when it’s natural for mention them in different settings and situations 😊.

So I have decided that I leave it this way for a while,- without any specific niche, topic or genre,- the theme will be “my life” in general 😊. Im not going to stress my self up to find “the specific topic, niche or genre”. I’m obviously creating “the way, my way” when Im writing my posts 📝. My blog is me,- even I also know I still don’t let my readers take part in every little things that’s happen in my life or in my mind,- I m going to “come there” as well, but one step at the time, and in my own tempo 😊.

My blog it’s about me and my life,- a Norwegian mature woman that lives and works in Spain, my children are growing up, starting their own life, and I need to find “my life as a mammi not living together with my children any more”. And I think that’s more then enough topic, niche and genre 😊. Its many different things, like the life it’s self is filled up with 🧡.

I could write about makeup, and I also considered that seriously last Autumn, but I’m actually not very interested in make- up. Im most interesting in my mascara,- and a tiny bit interesting to learn a bit about how to use foundation for the skin ( if its called foundation? 😅) 😊. I could also write about skincare, but I do my skincare in my own way at the moment, and I haven’t very much to share in that area either. I take care of my skin as best as I can with the different products I have 😊. It’s very easy 😅. I have already share what I can share both about makeup as well as about skincare 😊.

I could write about hair, and I also do, but not very often. And at the moment I have “quarantine and curfew” hair anyway, so it’s not very much to write about 😅. Im a bit couriers what my natural hair colour actually is at the moment, and is trying to find out of that. I also like to go the the hairdresser two times a year. Imagine that 😊. So I haven’t to many “subjects” to write about in that area either 😊. Just some few,- so I leave it to that 😊.

Of course I could write about clothes, fashion and style too, because I use clothes and in general I actually like my own fashion and style. But,- I have what I have of clothes, shoes and fashion,- and I’m not sure it’s very interesting for other to read to much about 😊.

I can write more about menopause, but I’m obviously still not quite “there”. My menstruation is still very regular. But of course there are different changes in my body because I’m getting older, my body as well as my mind are in a “aging process” – something that’s actually are very natural. It doesn’t matter if you are 10 years, 25 or 47, – we are all getting older 😊. And there’s changes in every “age- category”. You know,- ” every age has its own charm” 😊. Also my age 😅.

Repeat my self mow,- I know 😅. But,- What I know I m going to write about is my life, different happenings and “events”, – it’s not to many of them at the moment because we are still in quarantine and curfew here in Spain, but now with the possibility for a walk outside in the morning and evening 😊.

I’m going to write about my children,- but just when they allowed me to do that, and accept my textes and photos about them. Something they actually so fare has done,-approved both text I have written about them and me, and images I have used of them 😊.

I’m going to write about painting and knitting, and probably about my work now and then too 😊.

And I’m going to write about different things and stuffs that’s happens in my daily life and my life in general, as well as what’s in my mind now and then 😊. Its very easy, but still complex 😊. And for me this are more then enough “niche, topic and genre” 😊. It’s a theme,- the life, my life and different things that’s in one or another way are dropping by in my life 😊. Then I don’t need to stress myself up for finding a specific niche, topic or genre, and actually more just enjoy the writing and writing process as well as sharing my textes with my readers 😊.

As there are so many different people around in the world there will also be so many different bloggers, blogs and textes,- and that’s actually a good thing,- to not create to many “copies” 😊. So I hope my readers around in the world still will enjoy my textes, even I just have a theme, – “the life, my life”💛.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊

Me,- LailaS,- the writer behind this blog without any specific niche, topic or genre,- just the theme “The life, my life” 😊( updated photo as well,- taken today 09.05.2020).

I did started with publish my textes and blog for around a year ago,- and so fare I’m very happy for the way it has worked out and been, and hopefully will continue to be 😊. And I m also so grateful for my readers and followers 🧡. I did stressed my self up a bit when I started to write and post, because I couldn’t find any specific topic, niche or genre for my blog 📝. Now I m not stressed up any more, just very happy with the theme for my blog instead, and in general with my blog as well 🥰. It is what it is,- it’s my blog 🥰.
