Woho! Finally vacation!

I’ve dreamed about the sun and blue skyes for so many cold, dark swedish months and now we’re here! It’s even better than I imagined – lazy days with snorkeling, sunworshiping, beach yoga and hanging out with friends, wonderful bungalow hotel and I’m sold. Could’nt ask for more. And the Thai-people are so nice! This break is just what I need before reality kicks in.

When we get back home me and my fiance are moving to his hometown Karlstad and starting our first jobs as doctors. Ofcourse I’m excited for this new period in our lives but I’m also sad to leave all our friends, my family and Uppsala behind. For me it’s a big step and two weeks break in Thailand to catch my breath could’nt have come with better timing. Hanging out on the beach has had me thinking. Life is a bundle of memories and thoose I remember the most are the new experiences that came with both new great things but also pain and worries over what your leaving behind. Even the not so positive experiences have always served a purpose for me and helped me grow in to the person I am. That thought calms me a little bit and makes me think that there is no point in worrying about this new change, whatever comes with it will have a purpose in my life in some way.

So I lean back a bit more in my sun-chair, take a sip of my fruitshake and smile, enjoying the present and definitly looking forward to the future!

View of the world upside down

Everything feels upside down!

Breaking my arm and shoulder has been one of the toughest challenges for me so far. However, in some magic way it happend at a point in my life when I feel more grounded and happy then ever. It almost feels like someone was preparing for this to happen, making the circumstances easier for me to cope with this injury. Life is good. It’s not what I planned, it’s totally upside down, but how fun would life be if you could decide every minute of it? I think we need obstacles to challenge ourselves to new ground and perspective. This is a part of my story and I love not knowing how it ends.
