A life in motion is constantly moving in interaction with other people, body and soul.
Mountains, personal development, travel and being together with people is how I keep my life moving.
A life in Motion

Do you follow your heart?

It is good to be back in my home in Oslo, but I also miss being in Kathmandu or up in the Himalayas on an adventurous trek or expedition. Since I came home from my one and a half year journey in Asia last august, have I been working on where my next path on my life journey is heading. One thing is for sure I will try to follow my heart and see where it leads me. Maybe I will manage to make a living out of doing what I really LOVE, or maybe it ends up as a disaster. The only way to find out is to try and see what happens.

Christmas gift to yourself?

16663408_s

I have been really kind to myself today. I am visiting my mother at her house in Stavanger on the west coast of Norway. My mother and I have been walking on the beach for hours. Spending time on these beaches is real quality time for me. There are many thoughts and dreams that have been born on my hometown beaches. We arrived on the beach to one of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen this year, and I have seen many beautiful sunsets up in the Himalayas and elsewhere in Asia. After I came back to my mothers house did I dive in to a nice hot bath. Since I do not have a bathtub in my flat in Oslo which I really do miss, is this moments at my mothers house in a nice hot bath precious to me. While I dozed in to my own world in the bathtub came the inspiration to write this blog. I started to reflect about how important it is that we have more focus on being kind to ourselves. In the world many of us live with so much stress and expectations from friends and family in our private atmosphere, colleagues and chiefs at work, neighbours and others that we meet that takes up space in our surroundings during a day.

Evangeline and myself had a magic moment on one of our 2.000 meter peaks Besshøe in september this year. You are always lucky when you arrive on a mountaintop in Norway with clear view and no wind. We summited the top in september. It is extraordinary for that time of the year, that you can […]
