It’s my new weekly notebook for 2016. With my name on it. I’ve become old or just hipster. It arrived the same moment as the news, but luckily the needed hope came along as well. And space. For plans. We can be heroes (or starmen) and this year my plan is to be an hero. For a start.
I’m gonna talk openly about this. Sharing is caring… I’ve thought and still thinking, carefully, what I really want to do with my life and even though there seems to be almost too many good options, I know I need to make decisions and I need to do them quickly, without unnecessary hesitation. I’ve had enough of this, of not being in charge of my own life. I’ve had enough of the uncertainty, changing plans and unsuitable environments. At least when it comes to personal and professional life; in outdoor sports, on the contrary, those are the things I do them for. That’s where the excitement, challenge and flow comes from. Funnily enough.
I’ve been living the life, studying, learning, acquiring knowledge and skills, and most importantly gained experience, but lately I haven’t been able to use those nor my full potential, properly. And that makes me frustrated. I wanna reach to the next level, to the next record. Even though magic happens outside your comfort zone, sometimes you just need to get back to the comfort zone. Because the comfort too can be the magic.
This is Life
I don’t wanna waste more time, energy and other resources, while I could, or at least should, be doing what I really want to and can do. I want to use the potential I have, reach out with my fun potential and see where it leads me. I don’t want to continue from office to office learning over and over the unwritten (office) rules which I’ll not be needing the next year nor in the next place. I don’t wanna be doing things like other people have used to do them, nor repeat the same mistakes (and record) over and over again.
I wanna do things differently, I wanna see what I’m really capable of doing and achieving. And if that happens, that I only have the power to do that with my personal life, then be it. Maybe and hopefully the professional one catches us in some point.
Simply, I’m gonna be the hero; live, laugh and love. Take the change and accept the challenge. And hopefully there’s serenity waiting.
I’m not sure what I’ll do, but— well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale.

When it comes to blogging, I have to admit I’m not sure what I’m really gonna do with this. But since I have so many other things to worry about, this is something I’m not gonna worry about . We’ll see, maybe I write more, maybe less. Maybe I start to edit the writing (sorry for all the spelling mistakes – you do have noticed this is also for practicing my english skills?). Maybe I figure out some fixed theme for my posts – maybe this becomes a fashion blog. Or fitness. Travel. Adventure. Wellness. Foodie. Wine. Gin… Or maybe I’ll keep it as it is.
A blog of life.
2016. Aika olla sankari. On uusi kalenteri ja paljon vapaata tilaa suunnitelmille ja elämälle. Ehkä keksin myös jotain järkeä tähän blogiinkin. Tai sitten en. Tärkeimpänä tavoitteena nyt vain elää parhaani mukaan.
