The "What Next"

I've always been a "what's next?"-type of girl, I've always been dreaming, imagening and hoping, and I just realized, that's what saved me. I quote Shaun Parker:

"When I'm talking to someone who is discouraged or depressed, I tend to say, 'Don't let yourself be in this moment,' 'Try to think instead about the possible future and try to be literally pulled by that future. Imagine something that you would like to achieve.'"In any moment of the present, we are buffeted between the lived past, about which we cannot do anything, and the future, the 'what next?'


It's such beautiful and important words, what's scary about it though, is the chance of just focusing on the "what's next", to forget living in the present, in the good present too, especially. Luckily, I am aware of it, so I tend to dream, plan and make my future rather than going through hard times, the hard times will pass and I will be here, present, when they are. Be greatful for those happy moments, and be here when there's no place you rather would be, appriciate the times you laugh, the people who makes you laugh, and in your redicously laughter. I'm present just walking in the rain , looking arround me and just simply be aware of the greatness I'm honored to be surrounded by. I've found the perfect balance, I am lucky.


Going through some hard days here have given me time to think about my future, again, my what next. And I am not sure, I've been thinking of finishing highschool and what University I want to attend, when and where I would find an apartment in Oslo, but then I played with the thought of having a job while finishing highschool, save up some money and work for a few months after I've graduated and take a year off, rent an apartment some where amazing in the world, and just for maybe two or three months -live, live and write. Maybe take a writing class, or photographing class. You know, just be me, be inspired -and inspire. And for the rest of the year, before I go to college, go where the wind takes me. Proove that destiny exists.

I always thought I needed to do school somewhere to be able to travel right after highschool, and most people would, and should, but I'm not most people, someone has to be the one to do those crazy stuff everyone later wished they'd done.

And suddenly, my small problems didn't seem so important anymore.

Hei :)

Jeg skal til USA som utvekslingsstudent til neste r og reiser med Speak. Men i det siste har jeg begynt og tvilt litt, eller har begynt tenke veldig mye som at tenkt vist det skjer noe med mamma eller noen hjemme nr jeg er der borte, at jeg kommer til savne de alt for mye. Har alikevell veldig lyst reise, er bare n i det siste disse tankene har sltt meg litt. Hvordan var det med deg?

Fant forresten nettop bloggen din, og har lest igjennom alle inleggene p noen f dager og det er kjempe gy lese, blir selv mye mer oppmuntret til reise nr jeg ser hvor bra du somregel har det (vet det ikke er likt med alle, men...)

Hper p svar, gleder meg til fortsette flge med p livet i USA :D:D

S vakkert.. Akkurat snn tenker jeg ogs - eller jeg tenker at jeg m bli flinkere til det! Leve i nuet, men samtidig alltid ha drmmer.. Den dagen jeg ikke drmmer lenger skal vre den dagen jeg dr.. Jeg har en s stor lyst til reise, treffe nye mennesker, ta bilder, smake p god mat og bare leve at du aner ikke, men jeg drar liksom ikke.. Jeg bare.. er.. her.. Eller no..
