Back on track

Back on track

Fashion, Life itself

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.

    Hi! Hopped right here from your Insta. As I already said , I love your smile and this whole sporty look. I should really start exercising too ( am too lazy) .
    So happy that you are happy and enjoying life, you motivate me and inspire me because I am going through similar changes and I hope that I will also find happiness when this stress ends. Xoxo

    I love that T-shirt! Discipline is something I’ve worked a lot on the past two years, and I think it’s a great thing. And important to being successful! Also, I hear you and applaud you for quitting your day job! I’m in the boat you were in… working all day every day between the blog and work, and it’s a lot. I had off my day job this week for spring break, and it was AMAZING! Probably a taste of what you’re feeling now! I hope I can follow suit soon! For now, best of luck to you!

    Aww Thomas that first portrait of you smiling brought a huge smile to my face. I’m so glad that you’re finally getting settled in after the big move and that you’re even getting more active with sports again! I am planning to get my butt to the gym more too! Love this graphic tee! It’s so awesome finding companies that aren’t well known and just helping them get out there. I wish more people knew about the “small” businesses because there are certainly gems among them.

    With love, Jenn

It’s so hard to find a balance, especially when getting fit and I’m sure that you can do it! BEACH 2017 is in your future and it’s gonna be epic no matter what!

    Welcome back home and it looks like you are doing so well there. It’s amazing that you have had time to refocus and create and find your passions. I definitely agree that working out is so crucial for many aspects of our lives and glad you are getting back at it. This tee is too cute and I will have to check out this brand (hopefully they ship to the US). You sound and look happy and that makes me happy! Have a lovely Easter weekend with your family and friends. xoxo, Christine

    Dear Tommy,
    It is a complete pleasure to read this and to see you today. The captivating smile picture is by far my favorite and this fashion from Ron Dorff is exceptional! I spent some time exploring the website and found quite a few things for my husband for him to wear both st work ( he’s a gym teacher) and hanging around the house ( catering to me) and even out on the town ( accompanying me to Ed Sheeran concert) . I love observing and reflecting on how far you have come – from working so hard on everything and being successful but truly drained and exhausted to finally taking this plunge and working on your true dreams. I’m excited to see what you do and create next !
    Love,
    Your Jenny

And when you mentioned you did that, I was motivated to put in a plan to do so. And as you said, both mental and physical balance is needed. Thank you for this post. Cool shirt by the way!

    I am happy you are settling in and enjoying your time off with your friends and doing other fun stuff. I feel like I don’t have a social life since I am so busy. I am in the fence to quit my day job but still don’t have the guts yet. Assembling Ikea furniture has always frustrated me, it requires too much patient and I don’t have it in me. I am glad you joined a gym as it is the best thing you could do for your body and soul. Between my full time job and blogging is hard to find time for anything but I take one hour of my day to practice yoga or go for a long run. It’s important to stay active and like you said summer is around the corner! I love this sporty outfit, you totally look euro 🙂 Very chic and comfy !! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

    You’re already smoking hot Thomas…haha! Gym time is definitely always needed for day to day stresses and just overall health in general. Your post definitely motivates me to follow my passion of full time blogging one day. I’m actually moving out of state next month and will no longer have a full time job, but I will only be working part time. It’s just something to prepare me to blog full time, mentally and financially. Either way, you’ve inspired me and I am sending you truckloads of positive energy that things continue to go well for you!

    Finding that balance is so rewarding, it will always change, the scales are always tipping here and there, but being grounded makes it okay. Moving is super stressful, there is always something to do! A year after our last move I find I am only now making time to go through some boxes I had not unpacked. Of course, I am finding if I didn’t need those things for a year, I get rid of them. All the best starting your regular training. It feels so good!

It’s so beautiful to work on something you’re passionate about because at the end of the day, it doesn’t feel like a job because you enjoy what you do! Of course, like you said, it’s important to find a good balance to maintain mental health – you don’t want to overdo yourself as you have that addictive personality haha, I know what you mean because I’m just the same when I put myself into work!

    Happy to hear that you are settling well in Stockholm and getting back to being active! That is the bright side on being your own boss, you can schedule your day and make sure to include activities you were not able to do before. I love the active wear you have on here. I feel like you could easily wear this for just running errands and no one would even notice it’s for the gym.

    I’m back on track as well doing a few abs and Yoga time at home. I have not hit any gym yet hehe. It helps with the body and soul so much! It is so important to take care of the body our souls live in.

    First of all, I love your t-shirt, Thomas! And in my book “DISCIPLINE” is actually a very positive word! I feel that it’s possible to achieve your goals only if you set up a super specific plan and stick to it, i.e. be super disciplined about the execution of the plan!

    Talking about sports, I’m so happy that you are back to the working out game! It’s important to keep yourself active – it improves both mood and health! Keep doing what you are doing!

    Personally, I recently also started being more disciplined about working out and I feel that my new workout schedule really helps me to be more productive in other areas of my life!

    Är så glad att du trivs och håller på och göra dig hemmastadd!

Men såklart med ekonomin måste man ju vara lite smart med och ha en stadig inkom. Jag är alldeles för pedant för att inte ha en säker inkomst. Träningskläderna är super snygga!!

    I was looking forward to reading your post and I am so glad that you have settled down. I am sure the move wasn’t easy, but it must feel amazing to be back on track. I used to be banking a few years ago and life was just so boring, it was non stop work, even on weekends 🙁 . So I can totally relate to how it must feel to have your own time, to do exactly what you want and at your own pace. You are your own boss now and I really can’t wait to see your journey this year. Also I am loving your workout gear. it’s so cool and as always I can’t wait to share a new brand with my husband :). He’s just started on a new fitness regime too and has been on the lookout for new workout clothes. Also please share pictures of your new space, I can’t wait to see it :).

    I’m so jealous. That sounds so amazing. I’m glad you’re doing it full time. I bet it makes you so happy. I love the idea of working out especially with simple and smart outfits. 🙂

    So happy to hear that you are settling back in your city and also have free time to do leisurely things that you would have otherwise missed. I can’t tell you the last time I actually went to a theater without thinking about my kids and fighting the urge to go home as soon as the movie ends. You look great in the Ron Dorff gears!! I am eagerly looking forward to see BeachBod2017 and will live vicariously through you because my fitness routine consist of picking up after my kids after they’ve torn the house down and some light cardio at my mall (HA!).

    Great to hear Thomas that you are settling and settling down, but more importantly that you had found a sense of balance in your life now. Keep up the great work!

    Having control and freedom of your own time is really something I have been enjoying my self too!! Honestly so valuable to plan your day and enjoy the things that love the most. I totally feel the same as you because even though I have lots of free time (not having an office job) I still feel overwhelm with many things I still have to do that haven’t been able to be active neither. I recent came back from 5 moths in Africa and my main goal is to workout a lot. Cant wait to read more about how is your life is going after moving to your hometown.

    Sorry to hear the last 8 months haven’t been so great, but I am happy that you finally managed to quit your day job and turn into a full time blogger. It’s really hard passing over all those financial insecurities, but with time and dedication, blogging is really fulfilling. After all, it’s important to do what we love most, no?! Btw, I love this sporty outfit of yours and you should definitely smile more. Can’t hide such a cute smile! xx

    Andreea,

    Such a great post! Your move sounds like a dream! I am currently working full time and have to blog at night. You definitely know the feeling! I don’t have enough time in the day. On top of that, I work out about three times a week. I would go a lot more if I blogged full time.

    So glad to hear you’re getting settled in nicely. Are you going to do a home tour?! Would love to see your new place when you’re ready to show it! I totally agree with you — I really enjoy being a freelancer because I don’t have to go with other people’s schedules! I can work at my own pace and do the things I enjoy 🙂

    xo, sharon

    OK Thomas, let me stop any thoughts of or opinions on body image right here right now. You are ALREADY smoking hot 😉 (I will admit I may be biased as your dear fan, but hey, fact is fact :P). Nonetheless, I’m so glad to hear that you’ve been able to embark on such a refreshing and healthy start to this new stage in your life. And of course, congratulations are in order! It’s no easy feat at all, leaving a 9-5 job and becoming a full time creator. But if there’s anybody I know who can succeed in this field, it is you! I’m glad you now have the time to pursue your other passions and relax as well. I’m the same way in feeling addicted to things, whether it’s work or exercise, so I completely feel you. But I also admire how conscious you are with your choices. With this positive mindset and the help of a PT, it sounds like your health will be in top-notch condition in no time. In the meantime, you’re lucky to be outfitted with such a chic look from Ron Dorff! The idea of merging French elegant and Swedish functionality as you so elegantly put it sounds like a perfect style culmination, and I can’t wait to see more of his pieces. Hope to see you style more from their line! 🙂

    I totally feel you. I fantasize about quitting my day jobs a lot. A lot more in the last few weeks. My husband works, but I have something called student loans and blogging expenses… Woof. It’s been really tough but I think I’ll stay at my jobs just til the end of this year and call it quits. I never call my workouts quits tho! That has been pretty steady for the last few years. Can’t live without working out and glad you got into it!!

    Hey Tommy! First off these shots are so fun! I love this shoot you put together here! I’m glad your getting back into fitness? How fun is it? I myself had to back away for a second after that nasty flu, but I’m back to working out 5-6x a week 2 hours a day. I feel incomplete without it. I checked out the Ron Dorff website and i’ll have my other half pick us up some stuff for us! I’m glad your following your heart with everything your doing! Can’t wait to see you journey continue to unfold here.
    All my love,
    Dom
