Life is like a dream.
Sometimes it's vivid and beautiful, other times it can be a nightmare. But the cool thing about life is that with awareness you can turn any nightmare into a wonderful dream just by taking the pen in your hand and rewrite your own story. It's not about what happens to you, because it actually happens for you. It's about how you handle it.
I'm finished with my working period and I'm off! In two days I'll see my princess @agnesbonnevie and I'm so happy for that :-) Have a wonderful weekend! 🌠
The mind is sort of like a lake, only when it's completely still we can see the full reflection of our true depths. A reflection can teach us alot if we allow it to do so. It doesn't matter what happens to you, but how you handle it. If you truly are reflected it doesn't even matter that you think you did wrong, because as long as you know what happened you learned from it. So there is not really any wrong. It's all a part of a greater process, trust in the journey and allow the miracles to flow through life. Get the bird perspective, become a witness.
Have a beautiful day friends 🌅
It's been a long but stunningly beautiful week of night shifts, and now it's time for a day off before a week of dayshifts! 🌞 I'm headed up in the mountains for a little reset in nature with family.
If it's something I've learned along my way it's to appreciate every single day. Every single moment is precious and there's always beauty around us. There's so much to be grateful for, and appreciation is directly linked to happiness.
It feels so good to be alive! 😃
Have a beautiful day friends 🌠🙏🌅
Throwback to one of thousands of abundant memories in the past. Here on my way up to Annapurna Basecamp in the Himalayas west in Nepal. This trek can easily be listed as one of the most amazing things I've done in my life - it was epic. Nepal is an amazing and beautiful country with kind people and rich culture. Looking back to this almost feels unreal, it was so vivid. I know for sure I'll be back in Nepal and see more!
Have a nice evening friends 🌠
- ASKIKG FOR GUIDANCE -
I've learned something valuable that I want to share. I used to think asking for help was a sign of weakness, and that I have to do everything alone. I have to make it. But truth is, it's not a sign of weakness - rather the opposite. It's a sign of strength and courage.
We don't have to do everything ourselves. That's why we have other humans here with us.
I've found out that when I ask for help or guidance, people get happy and are more than willing to do their best in helping. And it's showing that you are interested, willing and also strong enough mentally to let the guard down and let what you need come to you. Life is not that serious, let go and play around.
If you ask for something, you are very likely to get it I have learned that when I want to attract more of something in my life, I simply have to find someone who has what I want more of in my life, ask them for guidance and they'll help. They'll help me tune in and get focused. For example: I was interested in learning more about stocks and the market to create more income and thus creating more freedom to pursue what I truly want in life.
And I suddenly found myself working with someone who's really good at that. I asked alot of questions and now I'm more into it and I'm learning alot!
And you know what? It feels great to help others. And when you start asking for help, others start asking you too. They like that, and they respect that. It creates a much more open dynamic in your life.
Don't be afraid to admit you could need some help. Why do you have to do everything alone? There's no need to invent the wheel a second time, it's already invented. Someone most likely already did what you think of doing, so look to them for guidance and do it your own way when you get started.
It's actually about dissolving the ego and cut the crap, keep the eyes on the price and enjoy the ride to wherever you want to go. The journey is never ending and we are always learning. We all have something to teach every single one of us on earth. Sharing is caring. 😊
Stay present, stay healthy, keep focus and smile while doing so!
Have a beautiful day my friends. 🌠🌠
- STORYTIME -
It's well over a year ago now. I'd just landed in Croatia for the first time, all alone. It was day one of my solo travelling adventure and everything was new. I had never done anything like this before. My first thoughts when I had checked in the hostel all alone and went out alone to get some food alone was;
Why did I do this again? Seems like everybody know everybody. In the hostel it was loads of people talking and I felt like an outsider. But that was until i got taking with them and it turns out they where all solo-travellers like me! It was a delight. We all came along so good and it was such an amazing start on the adventure. I met many people that day, but ended up travelling on with Fernando and Naosie through amazing Slovenia. We had many amazing adventure and great memories. Then we split up and continued on our own in each our ways. Now, over a year later I'm in Oslo making money, Fernando is from Argentina, studies in Poland and was now visiting Oslo just at the time that I was there too. So I got to take him and his friend on a little cruise with my boat. It was amazing to catch up brother! The journey never really ends, and it's amazing to catch up with the soul-family. I think Naosie is in China! We're missing the third musketeer. Sooner or later. There are no coincidences.
Have a beautiful day friends! 🌠
There's something very calming about it. The nature. The Nordic forest.
Something lets go. Some stuff do vanish. It's quiet, it's comfortable. The air is fresh and the sounds of the birds chirping tops it all. Whenever I can, I spend time in nature. If there's an opportunity I'll take it. It's worth every minute, it's healing me. It's just what I need, every time.
It's funnyy how we think we've come so far as humans, but in reality we are just trying to go back and reconnect. The more natural the better, the less chemical and artificial the better. Nature provides us with all we need, the complete source of life.
Have a beautiful evening friends 🌠
Hey. Good evening 🌃
A couple years ago I could never imagine feeling like I feel now, being what I have become or seeing what I've seen. Two years ago something happened inside me. I felt something, something was changing. I felt more alive. More present. It was like stepping out of a life-long fog. I could see the human drama clearly. The world as it is. I could see clearly what others ignore, I can sense the joy of just being. I feel alive and I love it. The beauty that surrounds us at all times has always been there. And it's even more vivid now, I'm continually growing. Not every day is a dance on roses but I can make it into it. I choose to make it awesome. Happiness is a choice, and awareness is the key to change. If you seek answers... Go in nature 🌿
Have a beautiful evening friends, and thank you for the photo my love @agnesbonnevie ❤ I'm happy and grateful to share this journey with such a light soul as you.
Another beautiful sunset on the fjord symbolizes another day in the life.
Two weeks on the boat is over, and now I get some time off. It's been a challenging but beautiful period. I've learned alot. It actually feels like ages already since I came on board.
Now I'm super excited to go home, relax and then make my way to Berlin and hold my sweet @agnesbonnevie in my arms again! I'm coming for you!
Have a beautiful evening friends 🌠
- REFLECTION -
A reflection can tell us alot. How we treat others for example, is a direct reflection of how we treat ourselves. if we treat others well, chances are we treat ourselves pretty good too. if we judge others, blame and shame others, chances are we are judging ourselves.
How you talk is a reflection of your thoughts. How we walk is a reflection of our intent. In what pace are you doing everything you do? Are you rushing through life or enjoying every moment of it? Are you really tasting your food?
Appreciation is directly linked to happiness.
The mind is sort of like a lake, or an ocean. Only when it's completely still, we can see the reflection. We can see that we are one with all. To not identify with thoughts help me see this.
When the mind is like an ocean, then thoughts are but a little (or big) wave in it. One of billions.
Why would the ocean identify with a single wave?
Our problems are but a single drop in an ocean of solutions.
Become a witness, don't react - observe, respond and act. Reflections are beautiful.
Have a wonderful day friends 🌅
It's not always beaches and palm-trees, but it's kinda close. Here's a little peak into my working-life at the moment.
This is my crew at my current work 😎
We're an awesome gang. We have alot of fun and we are creating an awesome environment to work in. It's alot of respect and fun, and we are effective. The picture is taken of a photographer who came on-board the ship and interviewed us for a story to his little magazine. He's actually going to write about an old fisher-captain who's gotten his eyes up for veganism amongst other things. Which is really cool! I'm so happy that I'm so lucky to get these amazing coworkers. Work is enjoyable and we have enough free-time to enjoy life.
I realize that finding our purpose in life is a long journey, and sometimes we have to work with something else meanwhile. I love working at sea and on a boat, but I know for sure that it's not why I am here - on planet earth. But I really enjoy my time here, what I learn is essential and it's good money my way :-) This helps me grow and realize my true dreams, such as travelling the world and be with my twinflame. At the same time I'm aiming to spread positivity to everyone I meet, to become the best seafarer I can be. Life is a journey, it's a travel. I try to enjoy it wherever I am and whatever situation I'm in, because I chose it.
I'm thankful and I enjoy the ride, we make the best of it. Life is abundant if you allow it to be.
Have a wonderful day! Only one day left of the night-week :-) #me#crew#sailors
I'm working night shifts on the boat. It's really tiring but I found it really nice to enjoy the sunset, the peaceful night and the sunrise every day. I have taken alot of cool pictures of the clean night scene.
I love to gaze into the sunsets and sunrises and thank the sun for another beautiful day on planet earth. Today was another day with alot of lessons, teachings, inspirations and growth. It's not always pretty but it's always worth it. It's always for the better. Always improving, always learning.
I let love guide me, not fear. Love louder.
PS. @agnesbonnevie du er en søt korv, savner deg
- Vegan Chocolate Banana Pancakes -
I asked for a handblender at work so we could make banana-pancakes, next thing you know - this is my awesome sunshine breakfast on the water today. A beautiful day deserves a beautiful breakfast - so here's my vegan chocolate banana pancakes with oats, chias, cacaonibs, gojis, blueberries, apples and Hempseeds. It was amaaaaziiiiing! This was just something I threw together with what I had available on the boat. We are what we eat, health is wealth and food is mood! Plus noone died during these pancakes, cool right? Have a wonderful and amazing day friends 🌠🌠🌅

Life is funny. Life is truly abundant.
When I first learned to accept and allow abundance to flow, I thought it was always gonna be like this. Just smooth sailing all the time, no struggle. Life's a journey, right? Truth is, life is what you make it. Nothing more. Good things will happen if you allow it too, if you believe in yourself and the universe - abundance will flow. But life will always have both ups and downs, if it has no downs - you're dead. We have to fly on the highs and grow on the low's. That's why they're here, we get them to learn. If we can appreciate and learn from the low's, they're no longer lows. They're just lessons, teachings, blessings. Allow yourself to deserve abundance, love yourself 100% and take no crap. Walk away from what doesn't serve you, let go of old habits and patterns. Make space for the new. Every day is a new beginning, there always something to be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness :-)
Im grateful for my journey, all my ups and downs. I'm grateful for all my memories, experiences, knowledge, friends, family, soulmates and my twinflame. I'm grateful that you inspire me, lead me to new paths and show me your soul. You are truly beautiful, inside out. And thanks for shooting this cool photo. Jeg elsker deg @agnesbonnevie ❤ Du er alltid med meg selv om vi til tider er langt vekk fra hverandre. Snart ses vi igjen 🌠
Urban sunsets are pretty cool too! 🌇
I don't really like big cities alot, might be because I'm from Norway. Our biggest city is Oslo with 600 000 people, that's not alot. And still most Norwegians find that alot. So cities that actually are big seem veeeeeery big and chaotic to me. But Berlin, I really like Berlin. It's nice, and it's a vegan paradise. It's cool art everywhere and it's a really good vibe buzzing around. It's always something happening here, and its alot of fun!
I'm having a wonderful time with my favourite girl in the world, exploring, creating and having fun. Love @agnesbonnevie ❤
