This autumn hasn't been the easiest for us. Not only has the weather been quite dark with little light to see, we have been battling with having enough energy just to get by. And because life shouldn't be just about getting by, when you end up in a situation when that is all you can do, it can make you feel low or even hopeless at times. At those times it gives us both strenght to realize we have the power to change our lives, but also to understand everything comes with seasons: sometimes you just have lighter times, sometimes you get times when you really hope for the lighter ones. And they will come! "Everything starts Små" has become very important phrase for us. 'Små' in Swedish means something small, whether it is a tiny seed you put to the ground and wait for it to grow, or just a small thing you do to get forward in your situation where you might feel 'stuck'. The phrase has become very dear to us because there are some things in our lives we know we could change, but thinking rationally, they need a bit more time to manifest into reality. Some of the things we are talking about here we would love to share in another post some day.
Overall this autumn we have had lot of talks, we have really put our plans into action, and just thinking and planning about these things have taken its toll on us. It's only a positive pain though!
But as usual, some things require patience and waiting. It is not that we can't wait or we are impatient. It is those feelings and longings you have to go trough WHILE you wait and try to be as patient as possible.
Phrase "Everything starts Små" is such a beautiful reminder. In a world where we want all the things our minds, bodies or hearts desire now and right at this moment, it makes you realize you might already have it, but in smaller steps. Or that you can change your life overnight if you really want to, but you don't always have to. Små steps 😊
