Two days in Stockholm is all I need

I’m sitting at the railway station, zipping a chai latte, my one and only go-to drink whenever I’m in a larger city. These two days in Stockholm have passed by fast, still it feels like forever since I left home. When I’m travelling I usually don’t think that much about what is happening at home. But this time to be honest, I can’t wait to get back home. I love going away to gather inspiration, meet people and see something else for a bit. But two days in Stockholm is enough. My head needs silence and a slower tempo again.

I have had two amazing days, even though one of my most interesting meetings got cancelled last minute. I could get frustrated, but instead I choose to just let things be. What happens happens and there’s not much to do about it. And even though one meeting got cancelled, I got to meet a bunch of inspiring people. Last night we had a spontaneous blog meet-up at Downtown Camper by Scandic, where I also was staying. We talked about life, business and got to laugh a lot. The internet is amazing in so many ways. There are plenty of great people that I would never have met without it. And for that, I am forever grateful.

Getting some work done. New fun projects coming soon with Träningsfesten

This morning I met up with Sofie Lantto, lanttolife.se. We were supposed to see each other at 6.45 to take a fitness class and then go for a run. But I woke up with a light migraine and had to ditch the class. Instead we met up an hour later and went for a run around Djurgården. It was so beautiful! We ran through Stockholm while the sun was slowly rising, talking about life. I haven’t known Sofie for that long, but it’s like we have split mind in some ways. We think alike.

After our run we went back to the hotel, had a long breakfast, almost missed the waffles. Had a waffle and another cup of coffee, showered and then I interviewed her for our podcast. She is from Gällivare originally but have lived in Stockholm now for twenty-something years. The things that she’s done and still do are amazing. A true inspiration in many ways. If you haven’t checked her out yet – you should!

As I’m finishing up this post I am sitting on the train, homebound. I am filled with inspiration, determination and a sense of calm. A few days in the city has cleared my head and the sky above me. The uncertainty that I feel some days is gone. I feel like I know what I am meant to do. Where I am meant to be. And I am so ready to just enjoy the ride.

The sounds from the train are melting away. People talking in the next coupe, the rhythmic sound of the wheels against the tracks – it’s hypnotizing. I feel my shoulders slowly sinking down and my breath getting deeper. As I finish up the last letters, my head is already tired and my mind unfocused. I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow morning, walk of the train and give Erik the biggest hug I’ve ever given him.

Life is all about the relationships we have. Once again, I realize how happy I am and how much I’ve already got. ♡
