The gypsy-couple goes Norway!

Bye Sweden. Now we goes to Norway! It’s fun- the last 3 (?) weeks we’ve been in 3 different countries; Portugal, Sweden and now today Norway. And to travel like this with my love, Tiago, is amazing!

We joke and call ourselves for the “gypsy couple“; We’re always on our way somewhere and with bags on our backs. Hehe. In Norway we will be training (mma, bjj, sw, boxing, kickboxing etc) and enjoying the nature. It will be great. I will keep you updated with pictures when I am at the hotel with internet!

About people getting jealous of successful & positive people

One time a couple of years ago I got to hear that a person was so annoyed about I was so positive all the time. And one time a girl didn´t like me because she thought I was so “perfect”.

Image

Why is someone reacting with a negative feeling on something good and a positive thing and why dont like a person who is in their perspective “perfect”. First of all I can say: I AM perfect and I am NOT perfect. This is the same for all persons in the world. We are all perfect with our non-perfections. But it all come to what perspective we as a individual have when we see things and HOW we CHOOSE to do with what we see.

We all have ways and things in our lifes that other people also want to have. And they have things that I maybe want as well. So, instead of being jealous and get annoyed about someone elses success and “perfect life” we should take that focus to our selfs instead and see the others as a motivation and a inspiration. From them we can learn.

But when you push them away, getting jealous and annoyed you will never learn to get it, your will only learn how to NOT get it and instead just get negative feelings in your life. Try to get close and be happy for them and I can almost make sure that they will be happy to help you achieve your dreams as well! And if they wont- just take the good part from them, see how they do and then go back to yourself and see what qualities You have and what you can do with you quality together with the new things you learned or get motivated/inspired from the other “perfect” person.

Image

And when, for example me, is writing statuses on my fb I mostly try to consciously focus on the positive parts of my day/thougths. Even if it is something negative/bad happened during the day I am CHOOSING to focus on the positive part. I can express the bad situation but I am trying to always compensate it with something positive in the end of the status- that make me CHOOSE to be positive but still accepting the bad situation but without let it take control over me.

It´s all about to get balance in life and to take conscious choices in all situations always. Then they will become natural choices and healthy habbits in our lifes. Never ever give up taking good choices. If you take a “bad” one – Learn from it instead of putting yourself down from it. Take that choice as well. Always.

Being alone vs Feeling alone

image

Sometimes. I am very alone. It dosn´t matter if I have all the people in the world around me. But nowadays I KNOW, that I am not alone. BUT! I know that it is a big difference by being alone and by feeling alone. And yes, what I feel is sometimes the biggest reality for me but I think it is very important to just remind myself now and then that i “only” FEEL alone but I AM NOT alone!

That gives me strenghten to let me relax and accept my situation. I dont relax and accept that in an unhealthy way that will let me just sit here and keep me feeling alone rest of my life but it gives me the acceptans to dont let it take over me completely. And that will let me think more clear and relaxed in a way that I can make it becomes healthy. And then I will not feel alone anymore… 

 

Busy business-days in Sweden next week!

Next week I am traveling to Gothenburg, Sweden for a few days. And my days will be so busy with PT-clients, a testgroup with a new project I am testing in my company, business-meeting with a big company for another really fun project, and another meeting with trainingcompany for maybe a partnership. And one more meeting with Business in Heart in the morning at the same day I will travel back here to Portugal.

In top of this I will mabe travel to Stockholm over a day for one or two other business-meetings! And of course, in gothenburg, I will have time to spend with my family! So, like I said- it will be busy days over there! But fun ones!! 😀 And… it will be nice to finally speak some swedish again… 😉

Dance with the pain

Everyone in this world have feelings that wants to be expressed. Most of the times I think we are trying to hide and ignore them because it is to hard to face it. One of my many ways to express my feelings, sad as happy ones, is by dancing. It makes me feel alive. It makes me face my fears and face my feelings in a way that complete my ordinary days of doing that. Yesterday I had 30 minutes by myself in a big dancing room and wonderful music to dance, move and just do what my body felt to do.

To face all kind of emotions is a tool to create my life to be fantastic! It is no need to feel a shame about it. It is simply beautiful and living. Yesterday was an expression of both a longing, sadness, lonelyness from old memories, but mostly freedom to just be.

Struggle- it is worth it!

Image

I started my fitnesscompany- Visio Fitness – for 7 month ago. It is going forward and I am so happy about it, but not as easy as many thinks it does. There is a LOT (!!!) of late nights work to make this succeed! Sometimes I am so tired and it feels like it is never happening anything. It feels like I am working, working, thinking, thinking, trying to find solutions, new partnerships, fixing the website, the layout, translate everything from swedish to english (and I have always been sooo SHY to speak english and that maked me to jump off all english-classes in the school!), find new inspiration, do the trainings myselfs, (and take care about this blog), put up programs to my clients, mailing, travelling, working, working, working and so on..! *Puh!*

Image

And all this I keep doing because it is worth it! I now the success will come, in one way or another. Many people get a bit surprised when they hear me say that it is so hard to keep up this company. “Is it hard..?! It seems to go so good and be so fun?!” they answer me. And it IS fun but it is ALSO a lot of work! And in one way I dont know if I would like it and have such a big passion for this if everyhting just worked out fine without any work and struggle? No, I know that all my hours, sweat (and tears sometimes) is one step of pushing myself to learning and develop my creative brain. 😉

Or what do You think- would you want to have everthing without “working” for it? Nothing worth having comes easy.

Over one hour in the water

Image

Last training was in the pool. One hour and ten minutes in the water to be precise. Great training that my body soooo need…

And here in Portugal you need to have this nice swimming cap when you are in the pool. In sweden it is no need to have it so for me- this was the first time that I became this “good looking”! ;-P Haha!

ImageImage

Above: Tiago is trying to kick me down in the water? =P

Below: I was a bit sour in my back after the back & neck-workout I did the day before my pool training… But it feels good today. I LOVE to be in water- I feel safe, happy and in a good mood everytime I am in the water. ❤ After all this I took sauna 25 minutes. Lovely. ❤
