The eyes that see

▲ To wake up before everyone else, starting the day in silence
▲ Taking a swim while everyone else is still sleeping, watching the sun rise over the horizon
▲ Taking a powernap but still listening to the voices around you
▲ Going to fleamarkets in foreign countries
▲ Holding your cat's newly born kittens when they're so small they haven't even opened their eyes yet
▲ My mom's perfect chocolatecake with strawberries and natural yoghurt on the side

▲ Pretty girls who doesn't know who I am giving me compliments
▲ Doing what you love in your own tempo. So slowly and so lovely
▲ When you just can't put down the book your reading because you have to know what happens next
▲ Listening to my mom playing piano and singing that song she always sings
▲ Feeling like everything will be alright, that things will be sorted out somehow sooner or later
▲ Taking a day off from your cellphone. Just putting it away, not distracting yourself with Mac or iPad in stead. Doing something that wouldn't necessarily require electronic equipment, not feeling addicted hopefully

▲ The smell of new sheets
▲ Falling asleep the second you lie down on your bed for the night
▲ Waking up in the middle of the night, going for a walk and you end up taking one of your best shots with your camera as you somehow capture the sun rising
▲ Sunshine coming through your window in a way you've never seen it before
▲ Taking that glass of cold water after almost dying of thirst
▲ Playing something on your guitar that you just made up, that you really like
▲ Listening to one of your favorite bands playing live right in front of you, with your eyes closed to take it all in and forgetting the people around you. You feel that good feeling in your body, and you just can't help but smiling.

It's all about the eyes that see. No matter what actually happens, it's only your perspective of your experience of what happened that counts. So you can choose if you want the little things to matter or you can continue searching for the big goals and try to fulfill everyone's expectations. Allow your worries to come and go, most importantly the letting go-part. Allow yourself to live. Life is not supposed to be easy, noone can say that life would be better that way. First of all we have to learn how to deal with always having problems and challenges. 'Cause they'll always be some, so worrying might not always be the best way to solve things. Listen to your body and do things because your you wants to, not because it has to, but because you choose to do them. Do them when you feel that you have the extra energy, and try to measure your days not counting failures, but maybe whether or not you did anyone any harm.
Today: 0
= Ah, couldn't be better, haha.



For me my number one communication priority must be not making anyone feel stupid in my company. Suits me well when my teabag told me this: "Perfection is not harming anybody"
Maybe my teabag was right. I choose to let my perspective be affected by the teabag-quote and I'll try to let the perfectionist in me be less worried about success and failure. I choose to see that as a good thing and I'll try not to think so much for the rest of this day. My poor head, overthinking and analyzing everything. Where's your mute button?

About


You could say this is just another blog about fashion and the life of a teenage girl, but in that case I would choose to disagree with you. I'm not like every other girl out there. I have my own life, filled with days like noone else's. I know, it's not exactly mindblowing that a girl is blogging about fashion, photography, music and all the other things she likes. Still, I stand by my opinion. I choose to believe that I can show you more than just another blog. I suggest you start scrolling further down here on my blog (after you've read this looong post of course), in stead of me telling you what you can read about.. Those words alone will not be able to give you the right impression of my blog, I guess!

Assuming you might already have figured out her name, the girl behind it all is calls herself Sunniva Halstensen. She was once born in Bergen, Norway, the month of March, day 21, year 1996. She has been living in Bodø (north of Norway) almost all her life, and is also spending a lot of her time in Oslo, with family she has there.

Other than that her life is mostly about what the future will hold, trying to find time for the things she loves to do. With a messy mind (in a messy world..) her days wanders around her little bubble of problems and worries, and every day she tries really hard to change for the better. Although she has goals like being "liked by everyone else", "eating less and looking like all of the girls on instagram", "never think a negative thought", "always be a good girl who does what everyone expects of her", "trying to get her lists of all the things she should have done, completed" and so on, she also knows that that is not what she wants. If she could be herself, be positive, believe that she is good enough, care less, accept her faults and the struggles she faces, she knows things would be just fine. Probably better than if she would just long for the first goals that were mentioned above. It's incredibly hard not to be affected by what everything around us tells us to think. "How to look", "what to do", "to be perfect", blablabla. Well, perfection is a flaw, we will never reach perfection no matter how hard we want to - so why wish for it? Will things be better then? Will the world get a totally different view? Can you use your perfection to do something you can't do now? Agree with me on this: the intense craving for "perfection" coming from all sorts of media and from the society around us, should be stopped. We know it won't go away today or tomorrow, but hopefully one day the pressure will begin to fade. We should be allowed to be who we are, no judging. We should be allowed to live our own lives!

This is an example of things she thinks a lot about. These and all the other thousand thoughts she has in her mind. Maybe this blog is a way for her to empty her mind a little? That way she can make room for the things she wants to do, in stead of just thinking of how much she wants to do them.

♥ She loves music. She loves photography. She loves dancing. She loves clothing. She loves France. She loves to do things her own way. She loves the light and the sun. She loves food. She loves herself, she loves you, and you should do too ♥ cliché much.. haha

Chaos in my head


Tiden som har gått og tiden som kommer har hatt og er stressende til tider. Jeg har prioritert blogg en god del i det siste, noen ganger kanskje mer enn jeg burde. Tingen er at til jeg har fått orden på noen tanker i hodet mitt og jeg har fått en raskere data, velger jeg å ta en pause. Med min treige maskin bruker jeg for lang tid på hvert innlegg og det går bare ikke! Formatering - øverst på min to do-liste. Jeg har også en god del arrangement i ukene framover, så jeg vil rett og slett ikke ha tid til å klare å blogge. Men ikke fortvil, jeg kommer tilbake! Selv om jeg ikke lover noen ting, vil jeg være tilbake på bloggfronten om en måneds tid ca - la oss si 15. april. Jeg synes det er utrolig kjipt, men noen ganger må man stole på seg selv og de valgene man tar. Akkurat nå prioriterer jeg rett og slett på den måten jeg tror er best for meg. 


Håper dere kommer tilbake når jeg gjør det!

- Sunniva Halstensen
 

New beginning

Nå skal jeg begynne å blogge. Jeg skal blogge minst annenhver dag og jeg skal ha fine bilder og outfits og mote og fotografi og andre ting jeg elsker. Jeg skal ha innlegg med kleine engelske overskrifter som ikke har noe med innlegget og gjøre og jeg skal ha masse lesere og kommentarer for jeg har så bra blogg. Jeg skal ikke tenke på det andre på blogg.no skriver om, jeg skal gjøre ting på den måten jeg vil og det skal bli bra. Ja, mine venner, dere kan sjekke bloggen min oftere for nå skal jeg blogge. :D:D:D

ny blogg

Nå har jeg laget meg en ny blogg! Jeg har savnet å blogge! Tanken er at jeg skal prøve å blogge så godt jeg kan, men jeg tror jeg skal ta det litt sånn som det kommer. Jeg er ganske opptatt med skole, dans og sang, så vi får se! Jeg hadde en blogg før (Suunniivva), men jeg sluttet å blogge for en god stund siden. Jeg hadde ikke tid, og som de fleste sikkert vet tar blogging MYE tid. Ikke det at jeg har bedre tid nå da..

Etter konfirmasjonen min vil bloggen bli mye bedre for da skal jeg få meg speilrefleks. Men til da er det mitt gode, gamle digitalkamera som vil bli brukt! Håper denne bloggen blir bra :-)
