A cup of tea and good conversations do wonders for the soul 🍵🧡

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

A good cup of tea and some good conversations do wonders for the soul 🍵. And I had a bit of that this weekend- some cups of tea and some good conversations that was incredibly good for my soul 😊. I don’t know if I can call what my friend and I for “afternoon tea” like the Englishmen have, but in my way it was 😊. It was in the afternoon, it was tea and it was some homemade cakes too, and it was good for the soul 😊.

I had have a bit on my mind lately, and still have, but with some good conversations, some tasty tea together with a good friend and her help to “sorted” out a bit, and make some small, short plans, for day by day, and week by week, not month by month at the moment. It’s good to start in the “small” when things sometimes feels a bit to big and overwhelming,- and it’s even better to get a bit help just during some good conversations 😊.

I’m a bit surprised over this “effect” a “tea “time- out”” can have, both when I’m enjoying a cup of tea on my own, but even more when I’m enjoying it together with someone 🍵.

A cup of tea together with a good friend this weekend 🍵

I know tea has an relaxing effect, and it’s actually healthy too because 99% of a cup of tea is water. Maybe my cup of tea is with 98% of water and the 2% of honey 🌼 ? I really like to squeeze a bit of honey in my tea, but honey is healthy too 😊.

The “perfect” cup of tea I think is a bit various from person to person, but my ” perfect” cup of tea is in general not to hot and not cold, more around 40 degrees I think ( Celsius) 🍵. And my favourite it ment tea with honey, but I do drink other tastes too …. with honey 😊.

I know I’m standing in front of some changes (and challenges too) in my life,- and like ny friend told me- changes is hard in the beginning, messy in the middle, but so gorgeous in the end. I choose to believe her, and in my mind I know that’s so true too. But to be honest,- I actually just want to “jump over” the hard and the messy and straight to the gorgeous 😅.

I know it’s not quite the way it’s “working”, so I, at the moment, do what I did in the beginning of April/ the Easter,- just relaxing a bit, sleep, work- of course, but is a bit nice to myself and don’t press my self to much. But just for a couple of days, before I really need to start working a bit hard for meeting the changes (and challenges) I have in front of me 🥀.

I don’t know “what or where” two or three months in front of me will bring me at the moment. In general we do think we know what we in a way can “expect” us from the days and daily lifes both two and three months in front of us. I know, because I have thought like that my self, even when the life actually have “teach” my something else now and then.

I also know I, one more time, I need to “put” some of my plans and wishes “on hold” for reaching, and special manage to handle the different changes I have in front of me at the moment. But okay,- that’s life 🥀.

I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that have some great friends that can help me “sort out” things in my mind and soul when things can feel a bit difficult, hard, messy and overwhelming 🧡. It’s good to not feel alone, even I know I’m in a way on my own too. I need to “walk the steps” to the changes on my own 😊.

I hope you are so lucky as I am with my great friends 🧡. That you can enjoy a cup of tea and have some nice conversation, nice conversations that both feels like medicine for the soul as well as helping you a bit with to sort things out now and then when you need it 🥀.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Together with the tea we also had some homemade Norwegian waffles, jam and snacks 😊

Sometimes a cup of tea together with a good friend is like medicine for the soul 🍵. Just a good conversation can help to sort things out a bit, and be helpful to just take one or two steps at the time, instead of three months steps in front of you 😊.

I feel on a kind of sadness 💙💙❤

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I feel on a kind of sadness inside me. Not sadness over new wrinkles or lighter hair, or hormones balance that’s changing. But a kind of sadness that an era in my life is over. The era to be a fulltime mammi. This is over.

I’m still my children’s mammi, I’m always going to be that, but not in the same way I have been for closely 27 years.

I’m actually not sad over the fact that my children are young adults and live on they own either,- but because an era in my life is over, and this time will never come back.

Maybe it sounds strange to feel on sadness, but at the same time still not be sad? Or feel in a kind of grief while not being grieving? But that’s still the way I feel inside me,- because I’m a mammi and because an era in my life is over for always.

I think it’s just someone who have been in the same situation as me that actually will understand what I mean- when it comes to feel on sadness and grief, but not be sad or grieving, because of a era in life is over.

It’s not like I go around and cry all the time, or want my children to move back home again. I’m good in that way,- this is something I feel inside me, in my heart, soul and thoughts, and it’s actually difficult to explain. And I allow myself to feel this without too much interference and influence from outsiders too.

I’m very grateful for all the time, the years, the memories my children and me have together ❤. And I know we will create new memories together too, but in a different way then before 😊.

The sadness is over a time that’s over. An incredible fantastic time together, but also an incredible busy and hard days as a single mammi. I don’t miss the business, at the same time I’m very happy I know I tried my very best to follow up and raise all my three children in different eras in their life ❤.

I hope, think, believe and actually see my children has got a lots of good things and stuffs in their “bagback” from growing up together with me 😊. But of course I also think about all the things I could and should done differently when they was children and growing up. As well as when they was teenagers and on their way to be young adults.

It’s many things I should wish I could done differently, at the same time as I can’t go back to the past and change anything. And I can’t bother myself with thoughts like that either- then I’m going to be “nuts” in my head.

What I can do is to be grateful for being their mammi and for the marvellous young adults they all three are become ❤. And I’m, as I mention, incredibly grateful for all our time and memories together ❤. But I’m also going to allow myself to feel on this sadness and a kind of grief I have inside me for an era in my life that’s over, and use the time I need to use on “this” feelings.

I know this sadness and feeling of grief will change and be different, but I’m using the time I need to “go through” this feeling of sadness and grief inside me in my own way. And like I mention, – it’s difficult to explain how, why and what I’m feeling, it’s just feelings inside me and an era in my life that’s are over together with my children, an era who will never come back, – and that’s the way it is, and that’s the way the life is too 💚.

And now I stand on the starts line to an new era in my life, and at the moment I choose to just stand there a bit too, on the starts line, and feel a bit over emotions and thoughts in relation to a time that is over, before I choose to find any new directions in my life, and start on a new era in my life 💚.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

A photo from a photo- so not the best photo,- but still from one of many best memories in my life as a mammi and together with my three children ❤. (I think this is around 12- 13 years ago) 😊

I stand on the starts line to an new era in my life, and at the moment I choose to just stand there a bit, on the starts line, and feel a bit over emotions and thoughts in relation to a time that is over, before I choose to find any new directions in my life, and start on a new era in my life 💚.
