There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind—you are the one who hears it.

Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud.

Think of how much energy is wasted resisting what has already happened. Since the event has already passed, you are actually struggling with yourself, not with the event. In addition, contemplate how much energy is wasted resisting what might happen. Since most of the things you think might happen never do, you are just throwing your energy away.

How you deal with your energy flow has a major effect on your life. If you assert your will against the energy of an event that has already happened, it is like trying to stop the ripples caused by a leaf dropped into a still lake. Anything you do causes more disturbance, not less. When you resist, the energy has no place to go. It gets stuck in your psyche and seriously affects you. It blocks your heart's energy flow and causes you to feel closed and less vibrant. This is literally what is happening when something is weighing on your mind or when things just get too heavy for you.

Sitting on a bench under the trees. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. The grass is green on both sides of the trail going through the park. It is Summer in Denmark.

It's Election Day in Denmark. A week has passed since the EU elections. The weather is great here. Currently sitting on a bench under the trees with birds singing in the background.

My X has been set and all there's left to do now is see the result later in the evening.

Yesterday, was the last day of lectures for my bachelor's degree in marketing. A lot has changed since I started. My views and perspective on life has taken a few turns. Partly due to new experiences I've had, new people I've met on my journey, and discussions that I've had with other peers.

Changes are always emotional. You say goodbye to things that you've tried your best to incorporate in your life. People you've crossed paths with, friends you've made and connected with, but sometimes those journeys don't last forever. Sometimes you got to leave things behind to make room for new experiences into your life.

Studying with international peers, I've learned to understand this concept very well. You meet, you become close with some, and at some point paths lead in different directions ones again. It's nothing to be sad about – that is just life.

There are certainly people that I hope and wish to stay connected with, even if we're moving to different parts of the world. Ultimately, we're still connected in our journeys and the experiences we've had together so far.

Election periods are always times that makes you reflect. What do I, as an individual, wish for us, as a society, to happen in the future. Who am I and how do I fit into that equation.

I'm making the changes I need to make to ultimately lead a better life for me and people around me. For instance, I've started blogging again. Something that I used to love when I was younger and had more time to do exactly what I wanted to do.

Even with more responsibilities coming as you grow older, I do still wish to have that same feeling. The feeling of being able to do exactly what you feel is right and take the time to do exactly that.

Starting blogging again is one step in that direction.

I just caught myself sitting on my own toilet, at home, saying “Damn, I'm tired. I could really just go home and sleep.” I should probably go to bed. 🤷
