Yes You Can

Start here

Carry me home

So tired and confused
Waiting overseas
For you to
Invite me over

On my planet there are
So many stars
And an imaginary ladder
To each and every one

On your planet
You say the train and boats
Are missing
In battle

I say, I can carry you
Over the bridges
Over the fire
Just to sleep in your arms

You say I must wait
Until you’re strong enough
To carry me

Soon it’s springtime

Soon it’s springtime and I’m determined to make the best of my days to come.
Life is short, this is a phrase we all use, but often don’t really act on.
We keep on going in the same direction, we hang out with the same people even with those who does not appreciate us. We go to the same job and we don’t expect more from us nor from our life, than what we did yesterday.

I want to change that. I want to reach higher. I want to get rid of my low self esteem and my winter depression, due to struggle at work and in my provate life. And I want to learn to appreciate myself more. And to tell myself that I survive, even if someone leaves me.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend. And for you who’s struggling or suffering. I root for you.



Wise men say


i-draw-what-its-like-to-be-in-a-long-distance-relationship-3__880 (1)
Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you?
Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
No, I can’t help falling in love with you

No matter all the obstacles
No matter what people are saying
No matter all he odds against us

Wise men say you should not depend on someone
But I say they are afraid of love
Because love is scary, and always out of control
Love is for the brave one, not for the wise ones

We’re fighting the distance
We’re fighting bad health
We’re fighting social rules
But here we are, still togheter

I love you more for every day
I will never, ever give up on you
I’ve have to be dead or
Completely incapacitated


Be a hero…today!


I can’t fly, I can’t make a spider web and I don’t drive a fancy car.
Still I can be a hero, so can you.

I think being a hero for yourself, is when you start to back up on yourself, when you start to protect yourself, when you start to encourage yourself and when you start to forgive yourself. It doesn’t have to be a huge project. It can be a very small act of kindness towards yourself.

I’ve decided to be a hero and to walk out on the battlefield and take up the fight against my panic, anxiety and low selfesteem….again.
I’ve been on that battlefield for many years, but lately I’ve been tired and sitting beside the empty battlefield, converting my life to a safe comfort zone, sittting in a trench from which I’m safe, but from wich I can’t go anywhere.

I decided to leave this trench and go out one more time on the battlefield.
I’ve taken the decision to change my situation. To rescue me.

So can you.


You and I can also be somebody elses hero, already today.

You can help someone today. You can give away money to someone who needs it more than you. You can make a phonecall to someone who is more lonely thatn you. You can back up on someone at your job who have a hard time.

You can start today. Yes you can!

Please tell me about your own experiences about being a hero for yourself or for somebody else in the comments below. Your story will be a joy and inspiration to others.

Thank you all for reading and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. And for you who is suffering, please hang on. Don’t give up. You’re not alone.

Let’s try

You’re there, but not here
I can’t reach you
I have to wait
Til we meet again

I’m running down the street
Because nothing I do
Can make any difference

The snow and
The love in my eyes
In every star that you look at this evening

The fate is not in our hands
But darling, let us challenge the fate
Let us prove it wrong
Let us try to make it right




The importance of decisions

Lately I’ve ben feeling more and more sad and tired. Almost invisible, I’ve been falling in a  spiral pointing downwards. And one day, sitting in the sofa, it hit me, that if I don’t take action now, sooner or later I will hit the bottom. It’s pure physics.
And from the bottom of the ravine I will not have the strenght to climb up, nor will any light reach over the edge. So right there in the sofa, I took the decision – to stop my fall.
I looked at google and found a coach with good recommendations. I schedueled a appointment and I went to see him yesterday. And there I was, sitting in a chair in front of a stranger. Feeling tired, middleaged, gloomy, anxious. But I was there.
I was there because I’ve decided to change my course. I’ve decided to be in the game.

It’s cold outside and I’m tired after a long week. But now I’m going to put on my jogging shoes on and I will go out jogging.

I wish you all kind and fabolous bloggers a great weekend and remember: You have the power in every moment to take a new decision, a better decision. And even the smallest decisions have an impact over time.


Til the end

You’re a tough guy
You been through a lot and more
No one tells you what to do
Nothing surprises you anymore

There are things that don’t have any solution
You say
And I say
Talk to me

I look at you
Knowing that my hair is undone
Knowing I don’t have any make up on and
Knowing I look tired

You take of your glasses
And you pull your hand through your hair
Meanwhile looking at me in silence
And I suddenly want to cry

Because I feel that
You do love me
Like I love you
So I talk to you

I talk to you about my fear
About my longing
And then I ask you
Talk to me

And you talk to me
About your point of view
Time stops
And through the screen you take my hand

Like two lovers caught in space
With no planet to land on
We’re know, that we will love each other
Until the end
