Life has been hectic the last couple of weeks, or rather, the last 8 months or so, but I’m finally finding some peace after my move to Stockholm. Things are still hectic and while writing this I’ve just assembled furniture for a couple of hours (I live in IKEA country remember…) and am dead meat, but that doesn’t at all diminish the fact that I’m overly happy to be here.
Quitting my day job and leaping into an uncertain financial future wasn’t an easy decision to make, but having done just that, I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be in life right now. Connecting, creating, discovering and actually doing what I love to do.
The feeling of having free time is amazing as I’ve been working day and night until now. This means that I can finally pursue my other interests as well, such as having lunch with friends, going to the theater, concerts, museums and all kinds of cultural stuff I haven’t had time for. I’ve missed that in my life and being able to do that makes me certain I’ve really made the right decision.
Another thing I’ve been able to take up again is sports. Staying fit has always been important for me, but due to the amount of pressure I’ve been under and due to the fact that there’s only 24 hours in a day (when I’d need the double) working out has not been prioritized lately. I’d say it’s been completely neglected. Having worked so much with myself and finding out who I am deep inside has been a very important and ongoing experience, but there’s no denying in the fact that mental and physical health are relying on each other. That’s why I’m proud to annoince that I finally took the step and signed up for a gym membership today and will be taking PT lessons to get me kick started.
I kind of need that kick in the behind to get started, but as someone with an addictive personality I’ve also got to be careful that I don’t get too into working out and focus my addiction to that. There was a time in my life when I actually had orthorexia without even realizing it way back in the years. What I need now is balance. Both mental and physical balance. That’s why I’m overjoyed by finally being back on track and will be heading to the gym tomorrow wearing my lovely sports kit from Ron Dorff, who just like me have their hearts (and design teams) both in Stockholm and Paris. If you check them out on their webpage you’ll see why I’m excited about their stuff as this brand is smoking hot. As for me, I’m aiming to become smoking hot as well and will keep you updated with my progress. Beach 2017 might not be impossible after all.
Ron Dorff needs a presentation though as it’s not as widely recognized internationally nor in Sweden as they should be. Created by a collaboration between the frenchman Jérome Touron and the Swede Claus Lindorff (from whose surnames the company has created it’s name) they align Swedish functionality with classic French elegance, Ron Dorff is a new idea of sportswear: smart, sharp and timeless. Neither precious nor overly casual, they concern themselves with beyond-basics: perfect pieces with an athletic heritage that perform flawlessly whether worn at the gym, at home or in the street.
