Exactly a year ago, after two painfully turbulent years already in tow, a wise woman told me that 2019 will be a year of great learning for me, if I will only let myself be moulded, shaped and transformed by everything that will come along my way. If i will be wise enough to always find the ground and root myself into who i really am and be open for change. I spent the next seven months wondering aimlessly around the thick woods of my own existence, in desperate search for myself. Sometimes I turned into a rock. Petrified. Breath-less. Other times I transformed into a tree. Standing. Observing. Rattling with the wind. Or a deer. Running away from everyone. The state of metsänpeitto was upon me and sometimes I was not sure if I will ever come out of it alive.
Luckily four Kat whisperers were there to tell me that I am not lost. That I am still here. And that there is no other way but to be present, even in the toughest of moments. Especially in such moments! Annie Lamott. David Whyte. Gabor Mate. Mary Oliver... Lifeline.
But then one summer's evening the full moon came out and something inside me cracked open and i could witness all there is in all it's broken beauty, glorious mess of what is me and the world, with every cell in my body. And i felt nothing but love and gratitude. And from then on things got really interesting and the whole process gathered enormous speed. So, here I am, at the end of the year of great learning I though it will never come. Changed and transformed once again. ...
It never really stops, all these transformations and becomings. But that's the only way to learn how to be a human being on this crazy merry-go-round called life. ...
Some people grow best in the volcanic soil. Rapidly and tenderly. Others in the dry desert. Resilient and thick-skinned. I grow in the cracks, where light and dark feed off one another to produce life.
Anything can grow out of a crack. A weed. Or a rose. They are equally beautiful, equally alive, equally thriving.

Traps and Abs routine! Lots of shrugging and crunching for this one 💪😁
Been neglecting both of these muscle groups the past few months, just forgotten 🤷♂️. I’m making a point to include them in the beginning of my workouts (so I can’t use the “im tired” excuse at the end 😅). In my opinion, they’re two muscle groups that can really make or break a physique, so i want to bring them up in my own 😁👌. #alwaysimproving
