life hope


Leave a comment

To get over hope is possible

but of course it takes time.

Months, days, hours, minutes and certainly not to forget… seconds.

Seconds that can seems as months…or at least hours.

Waiting for a hope, only brings me short.

Going for a hope, is also about taking a risk.

Taking a risk, equals in worst case scenario failure or in awesome case scenario success. For both… I get experience.

Some people tells me that I learn more when I do something that gives me failure… but sometimes that fear of failure..

I believe you know what I mean…

all that thinking of all the possibilities of how I could get embarrassed, hurt, humiliated, and bla bla bla… that thinking sometimes stops me from actually following my heart and my hopes.

My hopes for life, future, feelings, love, friends and experiences.

How can I accomplish them with less fear of the outcome?

Or.. should I not try to accomplish them at all, in order to stay safe on status quo?

Would I by time get over the hopes for my life I have now, if I do not at all try to accomplish just a little?

Or would I in the end regret for all the things I did not do?

Asking people who have lived a long life… they would always answer:

Follow your heart and make your dreams come through.

It sounds so Walt Disney like, so dreamy and right. And still when I try to touch the words they get so fluffy and unreal.

But when I put the word hope on my hearts desire and on my dreams, it gets a little easier.

What do I hope for would happen in my life?

Then it gets easier for me to understand, that I have to work on and go for what I hope. And it gets easier for me to work on the hope… and thereby follow my heart and my dreams. Even if I get hurt or embarrassed. At least I tried…and learned…for next time…

What is your hope?

learning to be happy


Leave a comment

You can look as good as you want – but will that ever make you happy?

Yes, I am telling you straight ahead that your look
has only a little part to do with making you happy.

Sorry,

… 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….

learning to be happy

 

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.

You can see more stuff about how to be happy about yourself right here

But

why am I then on lookbook?

why do I sell beauty accessories?

and

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.
(read the article about the Danish Fairtrade Fashion Designer here)

By writing my thoughts about life and beauty on this page I feel I can contribute to the idea: look good and save the world…

Have you thought about what makes you happy?

Tell me about it, if you like,
Either in comments or by mail anna@calledda.com if you like to be anonymous.

Until then, see you on twitter or instagram…..

I you follow me and make a post tagged #piece4love or #lookgoodsavetheworld I will follow you =)

and remember:

you are a piece 4 love, cherish and take care of yourself everyday then it is much easier to look good and save the world.

I killed my bags,,,,,,

Sometimes you just need to change, change big time,

but maybe you feel like I do.

I like it the ways the things are. I love my bags.
My bags that I have had for more than 12 years, handmade bags,
practical bags, small bags, thermo bags, medium sized bags, and so on.

Today I faced my biggest fear,,, well,,, not that I have ever thought
about it, but today I mistakenly killed all my bags.

You can see the picture of the disaster later in the post…..

For the first time in 14 years I have to buy a new suitcase, and I stick
to the same brand as last time, because hadn’t been for my own
stupidity – I would still have my bags… but sometimes,,,,
even a piece 4 love need change… rest in  peace my lovely bags…

Remember to save your stuff properly, otherwise you could as well,

give it away…. it is a piece 4 love, and so are you

Oh yes

Finally, and I really mean finally the sun has stopped by for a couples of days. Copenhagen can be such a stony place to be when the sun has decided to be covered by clouds bringing rain and this silly grey light that really makes one tired.

But now is time to take all my boots and winter stuff away. And I always take care of them, before putting them away. In order to make things last long if you care about them, do not misuse them and take care of them in a way that suits the material. 20130416_201129

So, here is a little picture of how it looks when I’m cleaning my all my shoes and boots, getting ready for the summer.

Oh Yes, that is a piece 4 love =)

Be Happy 4 other People’s Succes

Today a nice surprise turned in on my Facebook news. My study buddy JulieKarla won the title as Danish Champion in Everyday food… SHE NAILED IT, by working hard making lovely food and choosing the best dish for us out here. The judges must have had an experience of their life. (just take a look at her pictures on her blog right here ) I got so happy for her that I could feel the chill of her succes on my skin. It was amazing. ….. furthermore it gave me the confidence to go out and make my own bread…. which I did….

 

My goal with sharing this post with you is to reveal a short cut to happiness. It is very important to be happy when other people reach their goals. Because would  you not like your friends to be happy on your behalf when you reach the goal of your dreams ?

Happy Day

It is a happy day and I realized that me and my thesis partner are almost done with our project. The sun is shinning and my best friend Sunny came by to make some foto shoots for lookbook.nu I really enjoy these small events with Sunny because we always have fun together. Especially now when the thesis is taking so much of my time.

 

We went to the local park to take the pictures, and I couldn’t help it, I had to play on the pieces of wood at the children’s playground. Sunny of course had to climb a tree.

And this is a reminder to you out there. Remember to be happy with the people that makes you happy.


 

All my clothings today are more than one year old … brands are Bellstaff, KEIR, Markberg, Made By, Fendi

Useful Procrastinations

By the help of you people out there – I am on a mission trying to solve my need for finding new clothings to my wardrobe. Today I was supposed to make a short video about  my old lovely items. But instead of filming me and my movie helper and best friend Sunny aka Sunny4Lady  – decided to go out skating  (rollerblading) since the weather was good (which never happens in DK).

We went to Fælledparken which of course was crowed with small kids on skateboard and famous skaters doing photosession… but uuuii they were good,, me and Sunny were good as well,,, but we forgot to do real life pictures since we were busy rollerblading and keeping up with old tricks… and that is amazingly good for the figure =) and this is why I named the title of this post useful procrastinations… I just showed you how… and I even had fun at the same time

Now I’m back writing my thesis,,, so no filming today about my wardrobe of ancient content,,, but while waiting for Sunny before going at skating I did take some pictures of a pair of jeans and a dress which I really do not know how to replace. Do you have any suggestions ?=)

It could be so nice to get advices and tips on where to buy new jeans with a responsible story behind the production. Furthermore if any of you out there has any cool and easy suggestions on how to reuse the jeans… I would be more than delighted=)=)=)

I do not know whether the story about My God is responsible or not,  but when I bought the jeans 6 years ago I did not have these concerns =)

Can’t wait for your suggestions =)
