Great women!

How can it be that so many women feel so inadequate, unattractive, uninteresting, unfit for healthy relationships, incapable of greatness and the worst of all: unworthy of their own and other people’s love?

I just don’t get it, because out of the many many women I know, I frankly couldn’t apply ANY of the above to ANY of them! And it makes me so mad, that the other day I actually ended up in a (drunk, surprise surprise) argument, that in essence went something like this: you are a amazing, attractive, intelligent, fun to be around woman, there’s definitely a hot guy out there, who will ask you to dance if you only give him the chance.
Her answer: no there isn’t! No one ever wants to dance with me. period.

It literally made me cry because I was so angry! I knew she was wrong and she’s got this one stubborn thought in her head, that stops her from getting what she wants.

I know it’s easy to say and unfair to expect someone to change their image of themselves from one day to another (the deranged ideal idea of woman constructed by the media is sure as hell not helping), but to keep telling yourself that you are not worthy to be loved is just… plain self destructive and so so wrong!

And because she’s not the only one who does it and everyone needs a reminder from time to time about how great they are, I’ve decided to make it a habit to tell you, my dear friend, that you are awesome, unique, sexy, smart, fun, inspiring, strong, a fantastic friend and you deserve all that you want out of life. So go and get it! (and that goes for you too!!

Have a great Monday!

Oh and I’ve been a bad bad girl and lifted the image above from here (just couldn’t help myself), go buy the book so I don’t have to feel so guilty! 😉

On top of a dune…

My lovely boyfriend proposed to me on Christmas, which is kinda surreal, since up until then I really had no idea if that would ever happen.

Do you know that kind of serious conversation, where you accidentally say something you immediately regret, but you can’t figure out how to take it back? Well we had that kind of conversation a while ago, about marriage etc. and he told me how he doesn’t really see the need for marriage, asking me how I felt. And while on one hand I can see how it’s not necessary for every one to get married, I felt in my guts that I did want to be married, to him. Unfortunately, what came out was more like “nah, I guess I’m ok with that”. Cursing my harmony seeking tendencies straight away.

Oh well, but you see how it ended up being quite a bit of a surprise, when, on the top of a dune not far from where I spend many summer vacations as a child, he asked me (in Danish, brave man) if I would marry him. Needless to say, I said yes.

It’s really comforting to know that my future husband is capable of seeing right through me, even though I sometimes manage to sabotage myself by not expressing how I actually feel. That’s the kinda guy I’m marrying, and it’s feeling good.
