Yes, I am telling you straight ahead that your look
has only a little part to do with making you happy.
… I got a chock too.
When I was teenager.. around 16-17 I got the idea that it was all about the look.
I dreamed about being a model, I competed in a miss event and tried to contact photographers and model agencies… but I was not happy, even if I some where knew I looked good. And since I was not strong enough to be patient on getting jobs, I just concluded, that I was not enough good looking, and that I did not deserved better….
But later, I understood something really important…
I hope you understand it before I did? – how to be happy
Of course feeling good about how you look makes you feel more satisfied,
but if you are not happy in advance, a new pair of shoes or some other small thing are far from what create long lasting happiness inside your body.
Now I have finally realized… (20 years later…)
that I feel happy with myself when I
- make things that make my life easy without harming other people
- am together with people who makes me feel good and who make and give me space for development
- when I make sure that I eat good food and sleep all night
I would like to give this knowledge to you and other people who have difficulties in finding happiness….no matter how you look.
why am I then on lookbook?
why do I sell beauty accessories?
how do that fit with my eager to save the world?
Beautiful things make me happy – upcycling things make me feel I am contributing to a better world which make me even more happy.
Lookbook and all its contributors gives me valuable inspiration in my way of making it easier to chose clothing in my own closet.
I sell beauty accessories, first of all because I love them. I know all of the products in my shop by heart and I love to make other people happy with upcycling or products with a really good story.
