Bigger Than Life.

I’ve come to a striking realisation that I somewhat struggle to accept. A little seed that got planted in my head and is now impossible to eliminate. It was when P and I got sick. Both of us constantly sneezing, feeling all dizzy and down. I would never even consider to spend a day in the bed and give myself without a fight to the flu. I’d simply keep going with a ginger tea in hand until I feel myself again. But now? Well, now I play another game. Sick, with my period back though Sofia still on my breast, I’m genuinely struggling to squeeze enough positivity out of myself. And the physical discomfort added to the big decision P and...

Happy 6 Months, Sofia-Malou!

Sofia-Malou is exactly 6 months today! Which makes me a not-so newbie mommy – only if I felt that way! I still have no clue what I’m doing. I’m struggling day-in day-out to create a routine for her that works. My excuse is breastfeeding – legitimate or not. She has begun sleeping next to me and cuddling, a thing that I was firmly against…The same with eating – I started with the solids a month ago, even though I originally wanted to wait until today to offer her the first spoon with veggies. Our nurse advised me to give it a try earlier and see what happens. Guess what – she had no problem swallowing the food and was getting ecstatic every...

Taking a step to the side.

 It’s been a rough month and just a week ago I couldn’t even imagine how it was all gonna fall into place. But that’s the thing – when there is a cloud over your head you kinda forget that all you need to do is take a step to the side and let the sunshine spread its rays once again over your life. Remind yourself that other directions exist and then be bold enough to pick a bumpy road to a hopefully a ‘brighter’ ahead.   It’s all about making the choice to liberate yourself from what everyone expects and say ‘HELL YES’ to what the heart narrates. But for now I’m going for a stroll down Nørrebrogade just to look back and reflect on a journey that’s changed my...

The Perks of Self-Acceptance.

I need change. I might get a haircut. Or should I just go for a complete makeover and cut it all off? Britney style? What am I talking about? I’d look like an idiot! And what about my friends? They’d think I’d lost my mind. What then…what then… Maybe I should pursue a career that doesn’t involve much writing? Because writing apparently doesn’t count as a job. Otherwise, why would everyone keep asking me what my real job is, you know, apart from writing? What what what? Maybe I should become a teacher. Then I’d use a red pen to correct my students’ essays. Would that count as not much writing? Change of scenery? Yes! That sounds like a plan! Travel somewhere, or...

The Lesson Those 5 Months Taught Me

It’s been exactly 5 months since I became the mother of the most lovable little one – Sofia-Malou. It’s been a wild rollercoaster and it seems to me that I won’t be off it anytime soon.  5 months ago I was telling myself that the first 5 months would be the hardest and then all of a sudden my life would go back to normal. Meaning – I’d be able to leave the flat by myself with Sofia being looked after by Philip or someone else. I actually bought us tickets to the Weeknd’s concert (Monday 20th, February) because I assumed that by that point we’ll be able to leave her with her grandparents. Well, it’s not gonna happen. And while...
