Maybe I am a little stupid or

But I have decided not to put the picture of my son on the open internet….

A lot of people ask me why I can show my self and not my baby.

A lot of people ask me if I think other people are stupid for sharing their baby…

A lot of people ask for photos and I do send them in private messages.

It’s difficult to explain

I cannot explain why but since I am doubting so much about whether or not to put up a picture of my son I have decided not to put up any yet.

That does not mean that I think something bad of people who do. NO NOT at all. I think it’s nice to see the picture of my friends babies.

Even babies of people I don’t know I love.

And every baby is beautiful. Every baby has something special to share with all of us.

But I am still not ready to show mine to the world.

That’s why this post is without any pictures but one of me.

Please bear over with me and see you in my next blogpost where I talk about how I had to give up anything in order to feel successful 🤘

Until then, stay cool, calm and lovely as you are ❤

I choose to live

 

Today I passed by a girl called Doriana on Istagram. And I totally liked her profile text.

“Choose to live – not to survive”

And funny enough she comes from Italy (if you didn’t know I am half Italian)

I asked Doriana if I could feature her profile text here, so voila, Doriana’s awesome message is now even more available.

And this make Doriana a Piece 4 Love of the day. One of these pieces that just make life more beautiful and easier to live, because she’s right in telling me the fact, that if I choose to live I live. If I choose to survive I survive, and that is different from living. Well of course I do live if you survive, though, the fact is

To survive makes me think of troubles and difficulties whereas on the other hand to live makes me think of breathing and being happy.

And oh no I am not happy all the time, almost. But I do breath…

I relate my being happy almost all the time with the two choices in life I wrote about some posts ago.

It is easier for me to choose to be happy, because then I act from a higher vibration and I do my work better.

So how do I choose it.

I plan things I like to do and that makes me smile. That makes it easier for me to do things I do not like.

Tomorrow I have to do some administrative stuff that I have to do myself and that I really do not enjoy that much. In order to fell better about it, I go to an open place where I feel good.

So I change the rather boring thing into a cooler thing by tweaking the situation and that makes me happy,

And when I am happy I feel I choose to live.

Thanks for reminding me Doriana.

learning to be happy

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.

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

Remember to Grow

Words written on the buildings in the city is common also in CPH. One day many years ago I fell over this little Danish tag saying “remember to grow”.

Which definetely is correct. It is important to learn new things and do new things if not every day, then once in a while. You can grow a little day by day by challenging yourself by choosing another road to work, talking to people you might not are used to talk to. You could also wear another outfit that usual. Put a hat on that normally is only used for parties or wear that red lipstick you bought two years ago. Maybe you like it and start incorporating talking to strangers and wearing hat everyday.

No matter what it is as always up to you create your challenges, to set your limitations and to implement in your daily routine the things that make you smile.
