You think you have no power? Think again! Change your thoughts and watch the world around you change. Our thoughts are the single most powerful thing we possess that no one else can control unless we give them the power to. Allow your thoughts to be positive. Set your intentions. Manifest and visualize your wants. Now watch yourself be the cocreater of your life!
Mind matters – Love Hannah
“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” – Louise L Hay
I love this quote and think it’s such an important message for all women out there. It’s probably a topic many of us can relate to in one way or another. My fellow swedes would knows about this thing called “the good girl syndrome” where lack of self esteem may drive us to be extremely hard on ourselves. Most often we would then feel the need to always have to perform at our absolute best and over exceed in everything we do. I love that I’ve always been vey driven and my high ambitions. As you might know I often refer to myself as a “goal getter”. Visualizing what I want comes naturally to me, so I’ve always set goals for myself and worked hard to achieve them. But I’m realizing that I probably and most likely have a bit of this good girl syndrome.
The past few months has truly taught me so much about myself though. I’ve taken the time to reflect and understand more about myself, my self esteem and confidence. Which also allows me to remember to not bee to hard on myself when things doesn’t play out the way I had visualized.
I’ve come to learn how important it is to remember that failing at something is not a reflection of not being good enough. Something I need to keep reminding myself of. Don’t get me wrong I’m very proud of myself for all the things I have achieved. But it’s kind of a catch 22 when you always strive to achieve and accomplish more….
Is this something you can relate to, often think about or actively work on?
Further more… this year has certainly been a roller coasters with its highs and it’s lows for me. Big changes, challenges and life lessons learned in my private life as well as within my business. But struggles builds strength! I believe in gratitude… with a positive mindset and outlook on life we have the inner strength to power through and overcome curveballs life will throw us. We might not see it right there and then… but I try to see it as life lessons and experiences that will teach us something and allow us to evolve and grow. When we go through bad times, we can appreciate good times so much more! I’m grateful to have been on this 2016 roller coasters, because looking into 2017 I’m going to make it epic!

“Why should we worry about what others think of us, do we have more confidence in their opinions than we do our own?”
– Brigham Young
“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
– Stacey Charter

Happy Monday! Love Hannah ♥
“A place which a person associates with happiness, visualized as a means of reducing stress, calming down, etc.; (hence) a happy state of mind.”
“A place inside all of us where we are all happy and get the warm fuzzies.”
Everyday I have to work on staying connected to my happy place. My happy place is a state of mind where I choose happy thoughts and I surround myself with positive vibes. Around certain people or in different environments finding peace and my happy place is easier and comes with a natural flow. However our minds can play tricks on us… and I for one can easily get caught in negative and doubting thoughts for a brief moment. That’s when I have to look within to find the strength that will navigate me back to happy thoughts.
Things that made me happy and calm today:
– Spending time with my amazing, smart, positive and beautiful friend (inside and out) Alexandra <3
– Receiving a video message from my brother and nephew <3 It warm my heart in an indescribable way!
– Allowing myself to relax and be okay with taking a little break from work.
– Listening to my intuition and stepping away from a situation/ encounter that is not brining the positive vibe it should.
Happy Friday babes!!
