Dreams make you whole and confident !

13th of July 2020

Just a thought this morning.

I am a Gemini a typical one with all the complications and problems, i.e. problems for other people, not for me, no way!

I jump from one subject to the next one without noticing and people I am talking to just shake their head and are totally lost.

Luckily I do have friends who understand this problem and just pause and ask me to tell them what I am talking about NOW !

I have been like this always I think. Another problem I have is planing and thinking and then suddenly jumping the idea in front of someone, the boss or my friend.

The idea is fully processed in my mind, I have been thinking about the pros and cons for sometimes a long time and then I expect my boss to understand !

I was lucky. Many years ago when working for a company the boss told me: You can not jump your ideas on my, the ones you have been moulding for weeks, and expect me to say fine, just like that. I understood and I waited until he came and told me we could go ahead and the idea was perfect! Lucky me, don´t you think?

I have been realising slowly but persistently that my confidence is growing every day. I am who I am and I am proud of it.

What a relieve.

I don´t have to get permission to be the strange or different me!

I can just be.

Nothing to that you might say.

But for me it is a lot. I have allowed other people to define my, I have allowed other people to belittle me simply because I don´t fit into their frame. Can you believe it?

Freedom, my freedom is finally here. I am different, just like you are different. We are all unique. There is no one quite the same. Have you thought about this and looked at your life and your believes? Are they yours or are they to please someone else. It is interesting to look and you might find something you never expected. You might find your new self, the one that you love and want to nourish and pamper.

This was just a thought for today and tomorrow is another day and my thoughts will change and grow and my confidence will surprise both me and you.

Enjoy life and love intensively. Love is the glue that keeps us together and self love is the best one. There is nothing selfish about loving yourself. It is how it should be.

Listening to Demis Roussos makes me always feel good and the last one I listened to was “My broken souvenirs”.

Crying over lost memories is not me.

Crying over a lost friend is me.

Memories are made now – is me

Dreams make memories beautiful and whole

If you don´t dream you die.

I am Icelandic but live in Portugal. When I was young I had a dream. I wanted to travel around the world. I wanted to experience different cultures. My dream came true and I went to London. When going through the Chinese display in the British Museum I began to cry. I cried and experienced this longing and sadness. At that moment I knew I had to go to China. Arriving there for the first time I felt finally at home, a feeling I never had in Iceland. In Iceland I was an outsider. My mother passed away and I decided to move. My destination was China. I lived there for a while but had to sell my house and move because permanent residence was not granted to me. I moved to Portugal and that was 6 and a half years ago. In China I taught English and dance. In Portugal I am a retired resident. Now I am 72 years old. I love to write and want to share with you some of my experience in those 2 countries and also just my simple thoughts. Portugal is my final destination on this earth. Even though I have many years behind me, my mind is clear. I enjoy the life and make the most of every day. I love to sing, to study and most of all I love to be alive. I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts that I share with you.
