Adversity

 

What if i told you that you would face lots of hardships. You will have troubles, worries, problems. Adversity. Like it's for sure you will get there. 

What if every area in your life looked miserable. Sad. Hard. Impossible. Troublesome. Worrying. Concerning. What then? What would you do? 

Adversity in our lives is inevitable. This is what Google says adversity is: 

 

So here's an honest confession. My life lately, well not very lately, for quite a long time, has been full of adversity. Fairly unpleasant amount of situations. Circumstances. And by the long time i mean, year, two...

Moses! Moses!

 

So hiiii! It's me again! I am now reading Exodus in my quiet time. Or time with God. Or devotional time. People call that in so many different names. Also unrelated picture, because Sarah is just adorable. But i realised i needed to do another blog post because God is speaking so much into my life through the beginning of Exodus. I have read only six pages so far. (by the way, if you are new here HI! I am reading Bible one page a day). But there's so so much i want to unpack, digest and analyse. And often writing helps me do that so well.
So let me just get on with this.

3 months pregnant & moving to Estonia in 100 days

3 months pregnant

So today I am 3 months pregnant. Well officially 13 weeks and (checking her pregnancy app..) 2 days pregnant. It's been.. hmm interesting would be a good word. 

Life has been fairly challenging. This is my first pregnancy and surely surely, I am super scared at times. And I am prone to worry. Like a lot. Because we all have heard horror stories of pregnancies. Or how something can go wrong. And all that. And whenever you feel something, or even when you don't, your mind decides to race 100km/h to all the wrong places. I believe God is trying to grow me in this time....

Modern day false gods - spiritual realm, battles, lies.

THIS is not an argument. This is my view. This is what I believe and live by.

Lately I have seen so many arguments on one of my friends walls, about what is for Christians and what isn't. She's an amazing Christian who stands by what she believes in and shares it boldly! I admire her and love that she answers almost every comment with truth and honesty, not being afraid of what others think or what they might say back. I sometimes lack that sort of boldness. But here's me writing on something very similar. Because I care. I care about my fellow Christians and don't want them to have...

NEW season - 86/58; 4w5d; 247

There's a new season coming and I just HAVE to tell you all!

But let me start with some older news.

86/58

We are vegan. Me 86 days now, Peter 58 days today. And why? Well it all started quite a while ago, in my old work place, where there was a girl who was a vegan. And it made me think. More than 2 years later, that same interest came back. And then we watched some documentaries. I can't remember which ones i watched alone, and which ones with Peter. But things i have watched:

  • Earthlings (very graphic, and very real. How farm animals are treated.)
  • Forks over knives
  • Fed up (sugar...

Think about what you are thinking about!

Check your thoughts

I am sitting in our new/old home, i am happy! I really am! And why? For so many reasons to call myself blessed. But more on that later.

For now, i want you to think about something. If you are female, you can more than likely relate to the body-image struggles. You see EVERYWHERE skinny people. You might think that you are fat, disgusting, wobbly, could loose some weight, not fit, need to exercise and/or diet. And all those other thoughts that go through your head. You might feel that when someone gives you feedback, that you aren't good enough. That's what you think,...

2:31 - A.K.A mental health rant again.

It's 8:50pm previous night and i feel i can't stay awake. We stop the sermon we were listening and Peter sends me off to bed. I fall asleep quickly. That hasn't been a problem most times. Falling asleep part is easy.

1:20am. First time opening my eyes after Peter got to bed. I am immediately frustrated. NO! It's too early. I try closing my eyes and toss for about an hour.

2:31am. I have given up and have gotten out of bed and turn on living room light. Making coffee is a hassle. Making anything is hard. Lack of sleep has caused so many problems.

It's way too early,  but here i am....

Marriage is a half untucked bed

I originally planned to write this almost a month ago. But Peter, my lovely husband and it-man, was doing updates on my site. Anyway, as i was changing bed sheets one day and noticed something. Like the picture above. This is how the end of our bed looks like. I realized that we had learned to compromise in marriage. Not just that, but to accommodate each others quirks and wishes.

Society shows us movies and animations about wonderful love, and how everything looks like a fairytale right? Maybe since you were a little girl (or a little boy ?), you dreamed that one day that special someone...

I'm sorry...

Dermatillomania/excoriation/SPD/BFRB - today's honest talk. WARNING: contains details of self-harm.... 
Before i continue, know that this is not easy for me to share. But i want to spread some awareness. Awareness of what people deal with. Sometimes for decades without having solutions, without telling others, without even close friends noticing anything. I am gonna tell you about my secret. And after i press publish on this, it's more of a public secret. No, not a secret no more. I don't want to hide behind these masks that i have built myself, thinking "Oh, i got this" or "i'll get over...

Fighting turkeys, sandy shoes and 4am coffee

It's been a while since I've written, again. And surely there's always plenty going on in my head. But as always i must choose what to put here and what not.

  • I won't tell you about married life, because well it's a long topic. But most times it's amazing. God is good and so are rough spots. Because through them we grow, we are shaped and molded to be better together. Life is nice together. But more about that maybe some other time.
  • Had a birthday, missed my family, had some gifts. Also not the topic for this time.
  • Made all sorts of foods, learned new things, had adventures and outings,...
