Healing tools for trying times

With 2021 still only in bud, I don’t believe anyone is able to predict what the new year will bring even if we all, of course, wish for the best. Let’s hope a needed change in human hearts, behaviors and mindset will emerge out of all of this for the betterment of the planet and humanity. As an introvert, 2020…

From hard work to Heartwork

As I faced Chronic fatigue 4 years ago, I felt a need to express myself; to help raise awareness in highly sensitive people (particularly, but not exclusively, girls/women) on how to protect our precious energy by staying in touch and in tune with the whole rainbow of emotions, processing and (preferably) expressing them instead of suppressing. Honoring the language of…

Art takes time, faith and heart

Today’s bulky refuse day on my street and looking for stuff to thrash or recycle, I came across an almost 10 years old, unfinished painting: precursor of the illustration I drew for my book cover. It reminded me of what a long-term project it in truth has been; the amount of time, thoughts and tears put into it… Writing novels,…

Finding my way as a debuting author

A couple of months has gone by, and I’ve taken new initiatives to help my book find its readers. Being an indie author differs greatly from anything I’ve ever tried before and even if there are countless advice online on how-to, it’s almost too much and you’ll need clear discernment when sorting through it. As always, I use my intuition,…

INFPs and selling

I’m pondering one of the themes in my book, since I’m in the middle of the, to me, dreaded yet necessary task of promoting my novel. We INFP types are famous for disliking it a lot. A task not exactly the protagonist of my novel, Maria’s core competence, either. I’ll share an excerpt with you, pointing at how the girl’s aversion starts: “Last summer the girls made real…

A gateway and a celebration

I’ve been absent on the blog because of a challenging first few months of 2019. My case in the welfare system was up for examination, and I had to go through more tests and meetings. Sitting at a table surrounded by authority figures asking me supposedly well-meaning but still scrutinizing questions you could boil down to: “so, you still can’t…

Flowers in winter

On a walk on the gravel path along the fjord the other day, I came across some bright yellow ”flowers”, that caught my attention. The first one looked like a season-confused narcissus daffodil or something, but it turned out to be a kind of fluffy fungus! The other one was the unstoppable dandelion. Even in December and after a few…

Rely on outside opinion or intuition?

Intuition and emotions have been guiding me all of my life. Even if I have sometimes tried to hide it behind rational reasoning because that somehow sounded more mature or respectable. But I am an INFP type to a T – cannot change it and will no longer attempt to even if I’ve often wished I was one of the logical and…

Midwives of a belated spring

Spring has come late in Denmark, this year. In fact, winter didn’t arrive fully until March and then lasted for more than a month. Brrr…but now Spring is finally here and in full bloom – Hallelujah! Time for picnics with tea and cake on the meadow; for trips to the forest and beach again. Time for picking delicately blossoming apple tree…
