Sometimes the worst that could happen to you turns around to be the best gift ever. It could be a relationship gone wrong, a sickness, an accident, anything. First it feels like a carpet has been pulled away under your feet or a cold slap in the face. You feel abandoned, alone and like there's no justice in the world - WHY ME!?
After the different phases of shock, denial, despair, anger etc. something happens. You find a whole new side to life. You knew it excisted and kinda appreciated it but afterwards thought, never really really understood it. All the things you took for granted, have to be valuated again and put in a priority order.
For me it happened when my health failed and I had to evaluate my whole lifestyle. All the things I thought were important for my happiness, came crashing down and the really important things were found again. And I'm still on the search for them but at least now I feel like I'm in the right track! I know now that everything what has happened to me so far, has happened for a reason - how can I know what is sunshine if I haven't seen the night? I needed to stay in the darkness so that I would start missing the sun and appreciate it more than ever!
After a guinny pig type of experience, I'm now feeling so much better than before and appreciate life more than ever. The experience which seemed (and felt!) horrible at first has turned around to be one of the best things ever happened to me - I've aquired more knowledge about myself, migraine and it's treatments chemically and naturally and have just found a new path in my life. It's taken me to interesting courses, places and hobbies where I've had the chance to meet wonderful new people to share our thoughts, experiences, knowledge and caring.
So why me? I would say that because I never really saw what a gift life is. It needed to be taken away for a while just to make me appreciate it in a whole new level. And I do now, every day that I wake up without a brain exploding migraine is a gift for me. Viva la vida!
Sweet Natalie whom I happened to meet in the IVANAhelsinki store when she was visiting us, wrote a short post about my jewelry here - thanks Natalie, the ring bracelet looks good on you!
This outfit I was wearing a day before Christmas, just forgot to post the pics so here they are. By accident I noticed to be wearing Santa's colour palet - maybe it was the Christmas spirit which was styling me!

Hi readers and happy New Year 2011!
Just wanted to say quickly HI and that I haven't forgotten you or abandoned the blog - it's just been temporarily quite busy and I haven't had that much time to sit in front of the computer but soon I will catch up with you better. Lots of new good things happening this year which I'm very excited about - more news later! Hope you're all good and had a wonderful start of the new year!
Peace and love
PS. What do birds represent to you? For me they are a symbol of freedom, fragileness, courage, dreams and beauty. Free your soul, believe in your dreams - never give up!
