In Between

It seems that Mother Nature cannot decide whether or not to welcome hopeful Spring or to just stay with cold hearted Winter.

I think she is kinda caught in between…

Earth Day Photo

Because it’s Earth Day yesterday, I’m sharing one of my favorite nature shots. This shot was taken two weeks ago during one of my hikes with Zorro at Åsane Norway. It’s not our first time in this place, but for me this is an achievement because I reached the place without a guide. The hike is not hard but I’m glad I did it on my own. I’m finally learning to trust my instincts and conquer my fear of getting lost.

Bright and Cold

The snow is back after two weeks of storm and mild weather. I am also grateful that it is getting brighter again. My mood is starting to get better and I am motivated to try something new when it comes to jobs. The economic crisis is not yet over. Yesterday, one of the biggest banks here in Norway laid off 600 employees. So yes it means an increase in unemployment rate in the country. It is depressing for those who have lost their jobs and it is also frustrating for job seekers like me to find jobs within our field.

Yesterday I had a meeting with the local social services office. They have given me tips on how to find jobs. I listened attentively even though I already know it. Then in the end of the meeting they asked me if I have a business or establishment. In my mind I was thinking, it is a good idea. I actually have business ideas already. All I need is to make a plan, budget and just execute the plan. I have faith in this because I have the knowledge in economics and accounting.

Anyway, since the weather is nice today (and so as my mood), Zorro and I went for a longer walk this morning.

Nature Photography Cured Me

Being out in the nature makes me feel free and contented. It makes me forget all the unnecessary things that I crave and it motivates me to be a better person. Before, I used to be dependent on people around me when it comes to hiking (traveling), because I was afraid to get lost and I didn’t trust myself. I was anxious about being alone in the woods for example.

As time goes by and with the help from my therapist, friends, family and partner I overcame my fear and anxiety. My love for taking pictures (photography) is also one of the major factors why I continue to walk and explore unknown territories.
