Final dreamy days in the northern islands of wonderful #Tonga . Sharing fruit and stories overlooking the bay, being shown secret beaches and I’ve been given nothing but kindness. If I’m honest this place has rather captured my heart and I’m more than a little sad to leave. Vava’u I will be back 😍🇹🇴🏝☀️⛵️#traveltonga #traveling #backpacking #Iknowholidayisntreallifebutmaybeitcouldbe #holidayromancewiththeocean #makingplans #ohshushyoubigsap

Things I love <3 : My own stuff *********************************** I am putting IKEA furniture together. I love how simple and easy one can put the things together. Looking at these beautiful things, I feel blessed....even that I probably will never be able to use it myself. After 3 years of living with very very little. After giving all our things away and running my charity organisation, a life in service to others....I was so excited to start having our own things again. We bought beautiful furniture's from IKEA....omg...can you imagine...after three years of having almost nothing....can you imagine how I felt shopping at IKEA......all these amazing smart gadget's....these beautiful material things.....felt so blessed being able to buy that stuff and just couldn't wait to use it and enjoy every second of it. Imagine to look everyday at your own things and feel blessed of having "stuff", beautiful smart stuff. Are you feeling the same, when you look around you at your things at your house? Maybe the time of "not having" much, makes us appreciate the "having" even more. Then, before I even could use it, I had to get used to the idea of never being able to use it. That's sad. That sucks. I know it's just material things. I do know that. And when you face difficult situation's you learn what really matters in life. Not the material stuff. Never. And still, it did, it does hurt to let go again....after being sooooo excited for soooo long. Over 9 month, I planned, I visualized, I dreamed....then all shattered in pieces...... And you know what it is ok to feel that way. Because it does suck. Today, I am putting a few things together and I allow myself to feel the joy and I imagine I would use them. Putting them together with love and joy in the hope the one who will use them, will appreciate it as much as I do. #havingandnothaving #ikea #iloveit #feelingblessed #nomatterwhat #authentic
Things I love <3: An open Door *********************************** Our door is always open. All day long. The inside and outside melt together as one. One big space. I love love love that. As it is outside it is the same inside. An open heart. Being authentic. Let people in, forgive easily. Connect easily and open up very easily. The one who opens up quickly can be hurt quickly. I read an advice from a profiler to wait three years until open up to a new person, until sharing private stuff... Haha....the ones who travel, seldom stays three years at one place....how sad would that be to wait soooo long. I trust easily. I chose to trust. I chose to believe. Does this serve me? Yes, certainly. Does this prevent me from getting hurt? Certainly not. I give many chances. I do want to believe, that there's good in everyone. Have I experienced differently? Of course. And my door is still open. Because I love it that way. And I will not allow outer circumstances to change that. #nomatterwhat #JourneyIntoTrust #opendoor #authentic #trust #believe #overcomepain
