Enjoy my beauty secret! 😘

Focus on Self.

Focus on your focal point. It’s okay to relax. It’s okay to slow down. Its not okay to quit! Why I started this the first place? For myself! We will face challenges and adversaries but we don’t get better and stronger by quitting on ourselves. It’s always the opposite and tougher decisions that makes our destiny. Stay focussed!

The Lyngen Alps And Blåvatnet (Blue Lake).

So it begins… another day and another adventure…

 

Somewhere wild and untouched, the trees grew recklessly on gravelled paths as I began my journey… first steps and many that followed as if I was on a walkabout.

The rockiest roads, I was not skipping my way through this one. It was well balanced beneath my feet. Like toddler’s first steps until I discovered the stream. The glacier flows all this way not just to fill my cup but my heart with the joy of transcendence.

 

The journey continues, for the best is yet to come…

This looked like a bad construction site! I climbed to rocky hills to get to the most beautiful sight.

Blåvatnet or Blue Lake named for ( can you take a guess…? ) being the bluest lake! So rich in minerals, the water that flows from the glacier. And freezing cold! That 4 kilometres walk was so worth it!
