My daughter’s story: But he didn’t manage to steal her dreams and goals 🏖🏝🧡

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

As some of you know this Summer and Autumn has been a bit challenging for my daughter, both with long Covid19 as well as not the best choice of a boyfriend. And like I mention in my post 17. November, at her birthday- she is a young hard working woman, and work hard to reach her goals, special when it comes to her job and her goals and dreams in her job. She easily work 12 hours shift to try to reach her dreams and goals.

When my daughter moved back into my home she told me that she felt her ex boyfriend has stolen her whole life- not just all her money and different things, but her life. But he still didn’t manage to steal her dreams and goals 🧡. And no matter how down she has been both mentally after the different experiences with her ex boyfriend and not felt to well with long Covid19 she have used what she have of energy to still work for her dreams and goals in her job – and manage to reach some of them too 🧡.

You have during the last week got parts of my daughter’s story- it was and is very difficult to manage to explain and tell it all, also in a chronology way. But at least you got the essential in her story. You got her story- this story- we used more and less around a week to share it with you- but the “story’ did last a bit longer in the real life- some more months, closely 6 months to be more exact.

In just some few months my daughter is going to start on a new story in her life, new and totally different. There are some new and exciting adventures and experiences waiting for her “just around the corner” 🏝.

My daughter is going to move to Bali in March 2022, we don’t know the date yet, because of the world situation when it comes to Covid19, but at the moment the plan is that she is moving in March. And I’m so so happy for her ❤, and of course incredibly proud too 🥰. Because this has been one of her dreams since the beginning of 2021. And one year after is seems that this dreams now will get through 😍.

Some of my daughter’s dreams are coming true- she is going to live and work at Bali/ Indonesia for 1 or 2 year 🧡( photo is from over view when we lived in Benalmadena)

The company she is working for have had plans to open a norwegian office in Bali for a while, but because of the corona- situation this plans has been a bit delayed.

My daughter really enjoys her job and the company she is working for, and she is doing a good job too. She has been working for the company for two years now, and have grown with the different tasks and work, and also got more and more responsibilities. She wants to climb, learn, do a good job, grow, get new experiences and knowledge- and she manage to do it all.

She is a strong young woman, even she got this not to good “boyfriend- experiences”. Luckily he didn’t manage her take her dreams and goals from her 🥰. And she have probably even got stronger and wiser to after this experiences as well.

In Bali she is going to have the whole responsibility for the office as well as for some few employees. She is also the contact person for different companies in the main company she is working for, and she have also some administrative tasks too.

She wanted to grow, she wanted to learn, get more knowledge and more experiences, she wanted to have more and different experiences then “just” a costumer service agent on the phone. And she manage it too 🧡.

And this week she also got a new mobile phone,- not the most expensive and fancy one- but it’s at least better then no phone at all, and she can reach me and I can reach her.

She have also managed to get the train ticket to Madrid and the Norwegian Embassy this week, and is going to travel to Madrid next week and get a new passport.

Hopefully we will manage to get a dentist appointment to her soon too,- because she have a bit pain in her teeth now at days 😔.

So hard work helps to reach different goals and dreams in life- my daughter is a good example for this 🥰. One step at the time 👣. Just don’t let anyone steal your dreams and goals from you, and you can reach them too- if you want to and actually really goes for it. But as we all know- in general you need to do an effort and five to get what you want and wish for, to reach your goals and dreams, and it’s not always easy, and in general not “for free” either.

My daughter’s motto is: ” Get up, dress up, show up and never give”- and that’s exactly what she is doing- every day, “spiced” up with a “touch” of her mammi’s motto: ” It all will be fine” 🥰.

My daughter’s motto 🥰

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

In just some few months the next stop for my daughter will be in Bali for some new and exciting adventures, experiences and knowledge in life. ( The photo is from the beach in Carvajal/ Spain- I haven’t any photos from Bali yet )😊

Even there has been some thought months with not the best experiences in my daughter’s life she still manage to work as best as she could to reach some of her goals and dreams in her working- career 🏝. And in just a couple of months some new adventures in life is waiting for her in another destination then Spain 🛫🥰.

Welcome November 🍃🌹 Thank you October 🌹🍂

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

I have been working a lot in October, mainly because I had some private students who was going to have an big Norwegian exam in October, called Bergenstesten. So I needed to try to do my best to guide them to the exam, make them as ready and prepared I could. And that has taken a bit off time 📚. But also my normal job is a customer service agent on the phone takes time, even that one has just taken the “normal” weekly work time. And my freelance work- I’m using a bit more time on that one know for different reasons at the moment 😊. I have some dreams and wishes I want try out and see if it’s possible to manage 😊.

And just in case, “of course” my teamleder in my customer “service agent on the phone job” wanted to “upgrade” my skills too in October, so I could and can do some more and other tasks in the customer service agent job🎧. But I need to admit I didn’t feel for any more skills or new tasks or training at all at the moment 😅. I’m actually find on the phone like everything is at the moment 😊. Maybe special because I have different tasks I work on in my other job, my freelance work- like reach my own dreams in life 😊😅. And that’s not to be on the phone as a costumer service agent “for ever”. It’s something different. But the customer service agent job is fine- so please don’t misunderstand me. I was not just prepared for a bit more training in that job straight after finishing teaching my students 📚😅. And I have some dreams and wishes I really wants to try and see if its possible for me to actually reach them and manage them. But then I both need to put in some “offer” in both in my time as well as a bit of money.

To have dreams and wishes are free, but to try to reach them cost both time and money, and I want to and need to try to see if its possible for me to reach and manage my dreams 🌠. I don’t know that if I don’t try, and I can’t “put it on hold” for to long know anymore, I have already done that to long. I have set up a timeline to see if I can manage this, my dream. And I will probably know in a two or three years if or if not I manage it 😊.

I will say Thank you to October for the different opportunities my education, knowledge and different work experiences , and last but not at least, my life experiences gives me when it comes to new and exciting possibilities in different job situations – like my freelance work 🙏.

And I’m Thankful for that my students manage the Norwegian exam, Bergenstesten. It was a bit of a stress, but is was worth it 📚.

October has been very much focus on job in one or another way. And then, unfortunately, not so much time together with my friends, but I have manage to squeeze in a date with my Spanish friend at least🥰. And of course time with my children, – on the phone with my middle one in Norway, and the oldest and youngest has dropped by my home now and then. One of them even dropped by with all his/ her things too 😳😅. Jepp,- one has moved back home to the mammi again during October. No comments from me on that one yet 😅.

I wish November very welcome,- this month is also one of my favourite months- because my daughter was born in November 🧡. And in November there will be homemade birthday chocolate cake too 🎂.

I know November will be busy with work in different ways and forms. And also to continue doing and working with my dreams beside ordinary working- hours and days, and yes, be a mammi in my home as well. And try to squeeze in both some dating with my Spanish friend as well as some nice and cozy meetings together with my friends 😊. And in some or another way I really need to start with some regular workout and exercises again too 😅. I’m just not sure how or where to put those hours in my “schedule” 🤸‍♀️. And I also need to try to be better to write and share posts as well 📝.

With some good planning I can manage this- special if I give my self time to accept that things takes time and maybe little by little I will manage to put “all and everything” in a functional schedule that’sworsk for me- but not “all at once”, and also accept that there will be days where I will not manage closely to do anything- like today 😊.

I did started on a 2 weeks holiday today,- and I have actually not done very much- and I just needed this day to not do very much too – just relax 😊. Then I will manage to do a bit more other days 😊.

Thank you October for changing and challenges, knowledge and wisdom 🙏🍂. And Thank you for my jobs and works and different opportunities I get 📚📝. Thank you so much for my patience friends 🧡,- and Thank October for just the possibility to “meet” you with your ups and downs 😊🧡. And Thank you October for some nice and refreshing walks on the beach during some afternoons- it helps to clear my mind 🏖.

Welcome November- my daughter’s birthday month 🧡. And welcome to two lovely weeks of holiday,- where I just need to use the time and days to “feel up my batteries”, to relax, be a bit selfish and take a bit care of just my self for a tiny little while,- in my own way 🧡. Welcome November to a new freelance job- a job I’m looking forward to start in 📝🌠. And Welcome November with your unknown changes and challenges- I will try my very best to handle them as best as I can in a positive, open minded way and with as much joy I can manage to give different challenges in life 🧡.

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

See you as soon as possible 😊

Thank you 2020, and Goodbye ❄. Very Welcome you sweet and unknown 2021 ❤

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

I sneaked quietly out of the strange year 2020, and also sneaked quietly into the new and unknown year 2021. I actually slept out of 2020 and into 2021. Not because I thought 2020 was something to not celebrate, or something to not be grateful for, or not to say goodbye too 💛.  And the same is for this new and unknown 2021,- I really do welcome this new, sweet and unknown year, and it is also nice to celebrate a new year, a new start, a new beginning on it’s own way 😊. But I sneaked out of one year and sneaked into a new year simply because I was exhausted and so, so tried 😴.

It has been some of a year this 2020. A year that I think most of us not had in mind at all one year ago. I had different goals and plans, wishes and dreams, even some small hopes for 2020. And I need to admit I’m still not even close to reach them,- but I have at least started. Hopefully it will be better and more possible for me to try to reach them this year. This unknown 2021 I just whisper nice and softly Welcome to 💚.

I know many will probably not be grateful for 2020, and also think it’s strange that “someone”, like for example me, can be grateful for the year 2020. But I have different things to be grateful for during this very different year, a year with changes and challenges I didn’t see was coming at all one year ago. I knew it would be changes and challenges, new experiences, new possibilities and new knowledge, but I didn’t expected quite what it all was, and special not the way “it all” became. I don’t think most of us did . But still I choose to be grateful instead of feeling sad, disappointed or unhappy for this year that now has been.

It’s “showed” up a “new” virus that changed our lifesituation totally, not just in our home and life, but for the society in the whole world. It’s called a “pandemi”,- but I have some different thoughts about the whole situation around this pandemi, to be honest. And to be honest, – I really don’t like this new lifesituation we all are living in either. But I don’t think, unfortunately, there’s very much I can do about it. Except for trying to do my best of it.

It has been a very difficult year for most of us, but still I feel and know I have a lots of good things to be grateful for during this year, and I also choose to focus as best as I can on the good things during this year.

Even during the not to good days there can in a strange way a tiny positive thing or two. If we choose to take a good look, or just choose to turn things a bit around. Easy? No,- I really know it’s not easy. Sometimes it’s even a really “deep dive” “down under” or inside you for even trying to find a tiny little touch of something positive or “magical”. But in most cases and situations there’s always something you can turn around to something positive, just even a tiny little bit. But a tiny little bit of something positive is better and more then nothing 💚.

I have most of this year been living together with my children, not all three at the same time, but one or two of them together with one or two of their friends. That was not my plan for 2020. 2020 should actually, in my mind, be the first year in my adult life when I was going to live on my own. To “find me” and not just the “mammi me” 😊. It didn’t quite became that way 😊.

I feel and I know I have a lots to be grateful for when it comes to this “living together with my children again”- situation, even my children are young adults and should been able to live on their own. But the corona- situation did change some of my children’s plans too.

There’s so many that even have been able to see their children or grandchildren this year. I have been able to see my children, talk with them, hug them, and live together with all three of them ❤. I have been able to spend a lots of time together with my children, and their friends too 🧡. Something I’m very happy and grateful for, even there was time and days I was a bit tired of having so many people around me “all the time” 😊.

It has been a year filled up with restrictions. New restrictions all after how the green or red “corona- numbers” changed.

Sometimes it feels like living in a silent war. Sometimes it feels like our freedom is removed away from us. Well,- our freedom has been changing a lot during this year. But I need to admit that after closely 3 months with curfew during the Spring 2020 here in Spain, it’s actually felt like a kind of freedom to be able to walk a bit around “here and there”, even when we have bedtime- restrictions between 23.00 and 06.00 here in Spain at the moment.

I don’t like to use the mask, a mask I have restrictions for using all the time when I’m not in my home 😷. And we have actually lived with this mask- restriction for over 6 months now. But it still feels and is very unnatural for me to use a mask in this way. I’m not sure it’s going to be or feel natural for me either.

In its own way it has been a “silent” year with not to much “happenings”, but still some different “happenings” at the same time. And in a very strange way 2020 went very fast too.

We have been living in Spain for around 7,5 years now, but 2020 is the first year during all this years we didn’t have any holiday guests from Norway to visit us. No one. No friends. No family. At the same time I have had more people “living” in my home this year then other years.

I have no idea what 2021 will bring of mostly anything or nothing. I know there will be some new changes, some new challenges, but also new possibilities, new wisdom and new knowledge, even some new experiences in life too. There will also be a lots of July and happiness too ❤ But I have no idea what. It’s actually just to wait and see what’s happen, what’s comes up and try to handle it as best as possible 💚.

And I know I will try my very best to reach my different goals and dreams, plans, wishes and hopes this year. But I felt a bit like I was taken a bit with suprice in 2020 and the new “lifesituation”, the different restrictions and the a bit unexpected changes in my life. So I in away lost a bit focus on my “things and stuffs” for a while. And it’s not easy to find your own dynamic either when you share your days and weeks, even months with “new” people, “new” habits 😊.

I have no New Year’s resolutions, but ….. :

I hope, wish, dream, will work for, create plans for and do my best for to reach my dreams and goals: I hope I will manage to get my children and my things and stuffs from Norway to Spain this year. And I also hope I will manage to renew my driving licence and buy my own car. I hope I will manage to save up enough money to go to the dentist, as well as pay back money I have borrowed from my friend. I hope I will manage to work a bit more with my textes and blog, and maybe even earn some money in it. And I hope I will manage to paint creative paintings and fancy and nice glassbottles that’s “touch” people’s souls in some or another way. Maybe even be able to sell some of them? I hope I can live in this home to the Spring 2022. And I hope I’m “back in business” with my workout, and I hope I will still have “all” my jobes too. And maybe even “the love of my life” will shows up during this year? And I hope I will manage to save up enough money to maybe find a new home during the Spring 2022.

Anyway, – what I do know is that I just can do my very, very best to reach my dreams and wishes, goals and hopes. But I also know that thing can change “on the road”. Like it did in 2021. So I need to admit that I have that in my mind too. That also this year can be different from what I have in my mind at the moment.

And I hope, wish, dreams that my children will continue to be happy in their life with whatever they want to do and like to do 💙💙❤.

And I wish you all the best for 2021 🧡. Try to find and focus on the positive things during your days. I know it can be difficult, and I know a day can have more negative things then positive now and then too. But a positive focus gives in general a positive attitude, results and responses 💚.

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 🧡

See you soon 😊

I have this in my livingroom- and for me it’s stands for positive focus….in case I do forget now and then I just take a look and remember why I put and created it this way 💛.

Thank you strange and different 2020. Thank you for all the great time I have shared together with my children as well as their friends ❤. Thank you for the changes and challenges, knowledge and experiences during this year 2020 🧡. Welcome sweet, soft, lovely and so very unknown 2021🌹. I don’t know what you will bring of anything yet,- but I still whisper you a soft and nice welcome 🌹❤.
