I Needed a Break

I blogged daily for a good three months, and then I found myself completely overwhelmed with stuff that was happening in my personal life, and an inability to properly express myself by writing about it. I found myself sitting in front of my mac, fingers ready on the keyboard and getting stressed about not feeling... Continue Reading →

Don’t Sit Around Waiting

Nothing exciting ever happens to the ones who just sit around waiting for life to start. I see (and hear) way too many people who complain about wanting more, about being bored and missing that certain someone to come into their lives. We all have those moments where we wish that things could be a... Continue Reading →

Let’s Talk About Changes

Or rather the constant change in our bodies. I've gone through some ups and downs when it comes to weight. I went through pregnancy at age 19, and a whole lot of changes happen through that time, and for a while after as well. I've had periods of time where I've been quite fit, and... Continue Reading →

How many... Continue Reading →

But the fact that I have, also makes me more prepared now. I recognize the signs way earlier than I used to, and... Continue Reading →

A Confession!

I have a confession to make! I don't like skiing, and I'm so done with snow right about now! I know, I know! That's not a very Norwegian thing to say, but I'm still saying it and I will stand by it! I'm always fascinated by the fact that Norwegians all complain about the cold and... Continue Reading →

Love Your Mistakes

We all have them. Those moments where we make a choice, and at the very second that it's made, we know that it's probably a mistake. For some reason though, I'm guessing mostly out of uncontrollable curiosity, we do it anyways. Sometimes it's a make it or break it move, other times it's just a... Continue Reading →

Silver Lining • POEM

All of the looks The words and kisses Before I even knew I’d fallen into the trap Lost in a present That looked like the past • All of the questions The answers I feared And did not want They were the truth The pain I needed To finally move on ©️Christina de Vries
