[:en]To get in the mood for a great start of this new year I thought this photo shoot among colorful buildings in Copenhagen would do the trick and partly it did. As you might have seen, heard or noticed I’ve been a bit down and lost lately, but now I’m back, determined like never before.
I haven’t made any life changing decisions quite yet, but I am working harder than ever to make 2018 the best year of my life and to be honest, it hasn’t begun badly at all, quite the opposite. I’m full of energy, self love and loving life itself right now. One could think I’m in love as I’m experiencing the same kind of euphoria as a person in love does, but I’m just high on life.
I’ve given myself and thus life a whole new perspective. I’ve broadened my vision, but narrowed my goals and thus have made them more achievable. What those goals are you will be aware of in due time, but big changes are to come. For the better.
I’m not saying I’m feeling like I’m on top of the world quite yet, I’m just saying that there’s an optimism in me I haven’t felt for a long time. An optimism that brings out all the good in me (and there’s a lot of that, hah) and basically makes me feel mentally prepared for anything. I still struggle with stuff like not being content with myself, my work, my body, comparing myself to others and so forth, but a lot less than I did just a few weeks ago.
I’ve actually realized I’m perfectly good just the way I am and if someone doesn’t think so, why should I care? So cheers to 2018 and cheers to believing in yourself!

Follow me on Instagram, here. [:sv]För att komma i rätt sinnesstämning för detta inlägg tänkte jag att en plåtning bland Nyhavns färgglada hus skulle hjälpa till och delvis gjorde de också det. Som ni kanske sett, hört eller märkt så har jag varit en smula nere och vilsen på sistone, men nu är jag tillbaka mer bestämd än någonsin förr.
Än så länge har jag inte gjort något livsomvälvande beslut, men jag jobbar hårdare än någonsin på att göra 2018 ett bättre år för mig på alla plan och ärligt talat har det inte börjat dåligt, tvärtom. Jag är full av energi, kärlek till mig själv och livet självt just nu. Man kunde nästan tro att jag är kär då jag upplever samma euforiska känslor som en person som är kär, men jag är hög på livet helt enkelt.
Jag har gett mig själv och således hela mitt liv ett nytt perspektiv. Jag har vidgat mina vyer, men begränsat mina olika målsättningar och därmed gjort dem mer uppnåbara. Vad dessa målsättningar är kommer ni bli varse om i sinom tid, men stora förändringar är på väg. Mot det bättre.
Jag säger inte att jag är sjukligt lycklig och står som Leo di Caprio i fören av Titanic och skriker ut något idiotiskt, men jag har inlemmat en optimism i mitt liv som inte funnits där förr. Åtminstone inte på väldigt, väldigt länge. Den här optimismen lyfter fram mina bästa sidor (vilka det finns det finns gott om, haha) och gör mig förberedd på vad som helst kan man säga. Jag kämpar fortfarande med att inte vara nöjd med mig själv, mitt jobb, min kropp och att jämföra mig själv med andra för att nämna några saker, men nu i mycket mindre skala än bara några veckor sedan.
Jag har äntligen förstått att jag duger fullkomligt väl precis så som jag är och om någon inte håller med, varför skulle jag bry mig. Så välkommen 2018 och våga tro på dig själv!

I love this post so much because I am so happy that you feel a sense of optimism and it really radiates through the writing. Secondly, I have been struggling with my first post of the year and this really inspired me to write an introductory 2018 post because I can relate to how you’re feeling so cheers to the new year and all the exciting things to come for us!
ValeriaJanuary 2, 2018 at 4:00 pm
If I must be honest I was a bit worried after reading your previous post. I didn’t feel the healthy vibes that on the other hand are overflowing from your first post of the year. So glad to hear that you feel better and love yourself. It’s definitely unhealthy comparing oneself to others. That said, you stand out like such a successful, stylish and handsome boy, I can’t really imagine which flaws you see in yourself. But our brain plays tricks on us. So glad you are seeing more clearly now. Big hugs, Valeria

Aww love this little update of your feels and excitement for 2018! A colourful one in all senses. You look fab and I love your city shots.
Anthony @oh_anthonioJanuary 2, 2018 at 8:46 pm
Loving the positivity to start the new year! We’ve all had our self doubts before but I’m glad you’re overcoming then and learning to love yourself again! Cheers to much success in 2018!

SamjahJanuary 3, 2018 at 5:30 am
Definitely cheers to 2018 and always believing in yourself! Life can be hard and get us all down. That’s normal. The thing we mustn’t do is stay down. That’s where the problem lies. Looks to me like you’re conquering every negative thought and vibe you get. You’re not staying down. And that’s the key to winning. You will be just fine Thomas!
AimaraJanuary 3, 2018 at 3:55 pm
Beautiful photos as usual! I like that you narrowed your goals to make them more achievable and that you are feeling great on this new year Tom. That’s the way to start! Believing in yourself really changes everything!
Cheers to an awesome 2018! Make it the best one yet!
DarleneJanuary 3, 2018 at 6:26 pm
I feel like everyone’s really excited for 2018. I am so happy to hear about yours, on how excited you are! 2017 was definitely a hard year for most. I can’t wait to see what you bring out on your blog this 2018! Best of Luck Thomas!

Aw Thomas, this was a heartwarming post. I’m very glad your 2018 started off well and that you feel inspired to achieve many things this year. I feel the same way, and while it’s a bit overwhelming for just to think about all the things I’d like to accomplish, I’ll probably take things step by step and just go with the flow. Copenhagen looks so beautiful in these photos! I really hope I can make it over there this year 🙂
VictoriaJanuary 4, 2018 at 8:53 pm
I love the positive vibes you’re bringing for the new year. I wish you the best in this 2018 Thomas. ❤️

MegJanuary 6, 2018 at 2:12 am
You look great! And I hope you have an amazing 2018. By the way, I am obsessed with colorful buildings, too. I wish I lived somewhere like this!
Dom BazaJanuary 6, 2018 at 4:17 am

I really admire your optimism Thomas! You need to believe in yourself because you are the most important person to yourself. I have such great hopes for you and know you will succeed personally and professionally this coming year. I wish you the best in all that you do and can’t wait to see your journey!
Gabriela VeraJanuary 7, 2018 at 9:25 pm
I’m so glad you are starting the year feeling determined. I know I was feeling the same way before the year ended and now I’m back and better than ever. I usually workout to feel even more determined. It helps me feel better and more energized. Keep it up Thomas, love reading your blog.
Sharon WuJanuary 7, 2018 at 9:30 pm
Happy new year Thomas! I hope 2018 has been treating you well so far. I am loving this cozy look — I may have to steal that olive bomber from you haha the color is perf!! xo, sharon
Kamen KamenovJanuary 8, 2018 at 2:32 pm
That is the right way to start the new year babe. Positive and optimistic… full of energy and love. What a cool and comforting combo in general. I know you don’t make resolutions… you make things happen. But anyway I wish you that the year 2018 is simply the best one for you yet. I am sure you will achieve greatness… kinda Meredith Grey style… cause I know you are great… Lots of love from germany
HelenJanuary 9, 2018 at 12:24 am
Love how you’ve started your 2018 on such a positive note Thomas! I agree that we should definitely learn to love ourselves and be happy with just the way we are!! We’re all so incredibly lucky to have the lives that we have – especially us as bloggers!
Can’t wait to see what 2018 has planned for you!!!
ShereeJanuary 9, 2018 at 12:49 am
I am happy to see that you have a positive new perspective to start the New Year off strong! It is great that you are starting off your new year healthy and happy. I love all of the colors in the shoot, the buildings create a great backdrop!

I’m so glad you are starting the 2018 with the right foot so much optimism and energy Thomas!! This colourful place in Copenhagen is such a beautiful place and it giving me major wanderlust vibes. I hope i can make it here this new year 🙂 Keep the good energy coming
ElizaJanuary 9, 2018 at 9:18 am
Copenhagen is one of my favourite cities and definitely Nyhavn is one of the best shootings spots! Love all the colourful building around and the atmosphere. Really like your outfit choices, the trainers are on point!

Thomas, I love your optimism in going into a new year. I tend to flip flop between being super optimistic and being scared that I’m going to screw things up. Isn’t it crazy how we can all of a sudden lose confidence in ourselves? I’m so looking forward to following your journey for another year, and I hope above anything it is a successful one for us both.

JacquelineJanuary 10, 2018 at 5:38 am
I think these are all things people struggle with. The end of the year brings a lot of reflecting and sort of summing up your growth as an individual while the beginning of the year brings a lot of positivity and energy! I think it’s great to care less what others think and believing in yourself. It’s what matters most. I think.
DaryaJanuary 10, 2018 at 12:25 pm
Love reading your thoughts about the life. You are always so positive and determined. No doubt, that good changes will come if you are working for it.
amandaJanuary 10, 2018 at 5:07 pm
In numerology 20-18 is a great year for optimism and success as it’s the year of 11 with higher vibrational energies… if you believe in all of that. 2017 was an annoying year for me for certain, with health issues and extended family drama, I was ready to put it aside and only after being oddly optimistic about 2018 did I look all of that up! It seems that a lot of people are feeling this way! I totally agree with you when you talked about narrowing goals. I think that’s a big part of the focus, not feeling like you’re floating around aimlessly not really accomplishing anything in whole. You look magnificent in your outfit and I’m excited to follow along with you on this year!

I’m wishing the best for you in 2018! Self love is everything and I am so excited to see what you’re up to in the coming year! I have also broadened my vision, but narrowed my goals! It allows you to focus more.
JoJanuary 11, 2018 at 8:11 pm
Happy New Year, Thomas! I’m happy to hear you’re finding your stride again and I am sure you will go above and beyond your goals in 2018. Here’s to an amazing start and yessss! believing in yourself!
