[:en]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.

Photographer: Joanna Bladh, Photostory [:sv]Livet har varit minst sagt hektiskt de senaste veckorna, om inte egentligen de senaste 8 månaderna, mer eller mindre. Efter flytten till Stockholm börjar allt äntligen falla på plats och även om det fortfarande är fullt upp (har idag haft en plåtning ute i kylan i flera timmar, sedan satt ihop möbler i några timmar, utöver det jag gör dagligen vad gäller jobb) så ser jag att det börjar normaliseras och jag är verkligen lycklig över att vara där jag är. Just nu.
Att säga upp mig från mitt fasta kontorsjobb och ta steget ut i en kreativ, men ekonomiskt osäker framtid var ett stort och läskigt steg att ta, men där jag befinner mig i livet just nu bekräftar att jag fattat rätt beslut. Jag nätverkar, skapar och upptäcker nya saker och då pratar jag bara om den delen av mitt liv som innefattar arbete. Jag gör vad jag älskar och det syns.
På grund av att jag jobbat dygnet runt, inklusive helger, har jag inte haft någon fritid så det är därför nu extra härligt att ha återerövrat kvällar och helger och kunna göra saker jag njuter av såsom att luncha med vänner, uppleva kultur i alla dess former från teater, museer till konserter och så vidare. Har helt enkelt inte haft tid för detta förrän nu och fy fasiken vad jag saknat att göra allt det som gör mig lycklig inombords.
En sak jag idag lagt till på listan över saker jag har tid att göra är att idrotta. Att hålla mig i form har alltid varit viktigt för mig, men på grund av nämnda tidspress och det faktum att dygnet bara har 24 timmar istället för de 48 jag skulle behöva så har den fysiska hälsan blivit åsidosatt på sistone. Att ha jobbat med vem jag är och gjort en resa i mitt inre som är ständigt pågående har varit otroligt givande, men nu är det dags att även ta hand om det fysiska. Det är ett välkänt faktum att mental och fysisk hälsa går hand i hand och det är med stolthet jag annonserar att jag idag skaffat mig ett gymkort. Jag kommer även ta hjälp av en PT för att komma igång på riktigt och därmed inte förpassa gymkortet till en inventarie i min plånbok som används mer sällan än mitt ICA-kort.
Jag behöver en knuff av just en PT för att komma igång, men med min beroendepersonlighet får jag vara vaksam på att inte bli beroende av träning. I mina yngre år led jag av ortorexi utan att ens vara medveten om det vid tillfället. Visst, jag var snygg som få, men träningen tog över hela mitt liv. Det som behövs nu är balans både fysiskt och psykiskt. Det är därför det är så oerhört tillfredsställande att äntligen vara på banan igen. Imorgon ska jag bege mig till gymmet iklädd detta sköna träningskit från Ron Dorff, som precis som jag har hjärtat (och sitt designteam) både i Paris och Stockholm. Om ni kollar in deras hemsida förstår ni varför jag är exalterad över det här samarbetet. Märket är rykande hett och ni kommer efter en titt att förstå vad jag menar. Vad mig beträffar har jag också i pipelinen att bli rykande het och jag kommer att hålla er uppdaterade om hur det går. Beach 2017 kanske inte är omöjligt trots allt.
Ron Dorff behöver dock en lite utförligare presentation då de inte är så kända här på andra halvan av deras hemmaplan. Märket grundades av fransmannen Jérome Touron och svensken Claus Lindorff ur vilkas efternamn även varumärket i sig fått sitt namn. De kombinerar svensk funktionalitet med fransk elegans och Ron Dorff tar sportkläder till en helt ny nivå av snyggt, stiligt och tidlöst. De är inte för pretentiösa, men heller ej för lediga och funkar lika bra på gymmet, hemma som på stan.

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
IlianaApril 14, 2017 at 6:36 am

We are all great to have you back as hectic schedule will never stop. You are definetely made tough decision, but hey like you said,
Having free time is always awesome and hanging out with friends. Now I know what I’m going to do with you when you come to NYC . I will take you to basketball court. 🙂
StephanieApril 14, 2017 at 4:16 pm

I can relate to this post on so many levels. So glad you are pursuing your passion and what I love most about our job is the freedom to create!
LaurelleApril 14, 2017 at 5:40 pm
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!
Jenn HanftApril 14, 2017 at 6:12 pm
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

My life is hectic too at the moment. But you look so fresh and rested!!! I really love your look today, it makes me smile!
Happy Easter! Celebrate this Easter with a heart filled with love and peace.
GracieApril 14, 2017 at 10:52 pm
Love your t-shirt, your choice of IKEA, and so glad you returned home. I know that was a big decision but there is nothing like home. I am getting ready to leave home to go to school. I am sure I will miss my family. Happy Easter!
BerniceApril 14, 2017 at 11:28 pm
Can’t wait to see the physical progress you make now! Hitting the gym and really giving it 100% is so rewarding in itself 🙂
Jordan ChapmanApril 15, 2017 at 12:52 am
Trust me, this time of year, life is hectic all around!! I’m sure after drowning in furniture pieces, you’re excited to be done and have some free time! 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!
StephanieApril 15, 2017 at 2:55 am
I need to follow in your footsteps and be more active again. Good luck with quitting your job!

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
Gabriela VeraApril 15, 2017 at 8:37 am
I’m glad things are getting better for you. I currently work full time but look forward to cutting back my hours. So I can have more time to porsue my dreams. I love Ikea too, I just got a clothing wrack and shelfs for my office. Had a great weekend Thomas.
EVAApril 15, 2017 at 10:34 am
Welcome back yeah,love your new hair color. important to have time for us sport is vry important in my life, too.I’m swimming but now with the warmer season I started to running, the activities in the open air helps me to relieve stress accumulated everyday.
I’m glad you came back to Stockholm, and finally you’re fine <3
Jennifer QuattrucciApril 15, 2017 at 12:15 pm
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 !
SamjahApril 15, 2017 at 2:43 pm
I always enjoy reading your blog posts because I know you will write something inspiring, as you did. I have been contemplating moving on from my day job for some time now. 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!
KarinaApril 15, 2017 at 4:05 pm

Thomas, you always look smoking hot without even trying! haha. But I can see why you really like this Ron Dorff. That’s great to hear you have more time to pursue your passions and interests! I love hitting up the gym too – it really helps me prepare for the day and I have a lot more energy now than before 🙂
Gina DiazApril 15, 2017 at 8:01 pm
So exciting that you signed up for the gym! I love the gym and I missed it so much!! need to make the time for it!! You have many exciting things going on right now with you! this picture are absolutely stunning, love how you look in each one of them!!!
Happy weekend! xx. Gina

AurelaApril 15, 2017 at 10:22 pm
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.
IsabelApril 15, 2017 at 10:25 pm
Hey Thomas! So glad to see you so well, doing all the right things. I’m so happy to know you’re changing your life and living your dreams.
Can’t wait to see what’s next!
Sending you all the good vibes and hope you know I’m crossing my fingers for you!
YasminApril 16, 2017 at 3:29 am
That t-shirt is so cool and totally you! It’s fun to have quirky workout gear. You already look pretty fit to me so I’m sure Beach 2017 will welcome you with open arms! So glad to hear you’re fitting back into life in Stockholm well. If I ever visit the city, now I know someone to visit there!
CandaceApril 16, 2017 at 3:42 am
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!
MichelleApril 16, 2017 at 1:02 pm
It’s so nice to see you smiling Thomas! It looks like this move was just what you needed. Can’t wait to see pics of your new space! I’ve been working out at home but I was just thinking I need to take the next step to join a gym too. Now that the weather is warming up I can’t hide behind my coats anymore. And loving these Ron Dorff designs on you – you always have the cutest statement tees 🙂
MegApril 16, 2017 at 2:34 pm
It is truly inspiring that you quit your day job to just be happy. It is something that a lot of people can’t get themselves to do because of the uncertainty. But it’s amazing to see how well it is working out with you!
ClaudiaApril 16, 2017 at 4:58 pm
Ha! There is something rewarding about assembling furniture, don’t you think? Working out is the best, I’m happy to hear you’re getting into it and in style. Loved Ron Dorff , you wear it so well, it suits your style and as you say, you can wear it in the street as well, double yay!! I wish they had a women’s line, but I saw a few things that I might still get anyway. Keep it up! xx, C.
Queen HorsfallApril 17, 2017 at 2:37 am
I was so excited to read your blog post, to be clear even missed you! Haha! I am glad that you back to our world bf trying hard to get on your feet with new life! Sport used be part of my lifestyle in younger age and when I got into teen, I thought it was not cool anymore. I am happy that younger generation is taking sport into their life from us bloggers! This sneakers look so cool and stylish!
LaurenApril 17, 2017 at 3:50 am
That’s great that you get to take up some enjoyable hobbies in your free time! I’m a bit jealous 🙂 Also IKEA furniture…. don’t get me started lol.

So glad to hear that you’re doing all these great things Thomas! It’s been extremely hectic for me too! But after reading your post I feel like my problems are so small compared to yours! Haha keep up the great work and glad to see you’re back on track!
JenelleApril 17, 2017 at 9:36 am
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!
WanderlusttsApril 17, 2017 at 2:57 pm
Oh thomas, i’m so glad you know you made the right choice and pursued what would make you happiest. 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!
BryannaApril 17, 2017 at 4:02 pm
Yass! Gym membership! Honestly, it just makes you feel better and removes a lot of stress. I haven’t tried PT lessons, but you should keep us updated on how you like them! I would be interested to hear. That shirt though is absolutely amazing, and I’m really glad you get to do what you love now. So happy for you, Thomas! 🙂

Hello dear friend! I’m glad that now you have some free time you decided to resume working out. But I’m especially glad you got to know yourself so well that you are aware you must keep a healthy attitude towards every activity you undertake. It’s so great to see you smile! And thank you for introducing Ron Dorff sportswear and athleisure wear. The set you are wearing is super cool! Big hugs and take care always! Baci, Valeria – Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

It’s so incredible what taking a leap of faith does! Honestly I was so impressed after reading your blog post with your choice for living for you and doing what you want to do for work and just life in general. A lot of people need that stability, but you will definitely live out your dreams when you follow your instincts. 🙂

AimaraApril 18, 2017 at 12:32 am
Love this outfit Thomas! And love these photos!
I totally know where you’re coming from. I took the leap a few months back and it feels great to have time again hahaha so enjoy it! I know you are on the right path! Mental and physical health are both very important, so I’m glad you now have the time to go to the gym and stay active.
maryamApril 18, 2017 at 3:17 am
IKEA country? That’s too funny. I love IKEA though, I have a few pieces myself. As far as your journey, honestly I envy you. To have a courage to leave a job and live your life the way you want to and pursuing your dreams! way to go!
JosieApril 18, 2017 at 1:21 pm
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.

ElizaApril 18, 2017 at 4:42 pm
Doing what you love is actually the best decision to make. It can be very hard at the beginning, but the whole universe will lead you along your way.
Totally agree with you, staying fit physically and mentally is very important. I felt a bit down because of this shitty Berlin weather, but when I’ve started running, everything went fab again. I really love this photo set, the crispiness of your photos is just so great!

I absolutely love this set pictures of you. Nothing beats your smile, really! I know creating great content of blog posts is your passion and I am so glad you finally find the time to do everything. I am so proud that you are getting back to the gym routine as I firmly believe exercise helps with both body and mind.
Vanessa BerlinApril 19, 2017 at 12:02 am
Hey Thomas! I have been very busy working that I haven’t been getting as much ME time as I used to. Your story inspired me to try to make some time for myself in my schedule. Love your gym outfit by the way! Enjoy the rest of your week!
Katya | Style SprinterApril 19, 2017 at 3:00 am
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!
shaliniApril 19, 2017 at 3:14 am
Good for you Thomas! Glad to know you are doing well and have focused on the things you love. Going to the gym and taking care of your physical health makes you mentally better too. This athletic wear you are sporting here is really cool. I love the fact it can be worn on the streets as well. I wish you well. xo shalini
SofiaApril 19, 2017 at 4:04 am
Är så glad att du trivs och håller på och göra dig hemmastadd! Någon gång I framtiden vill jag verkligen bara sluta mitt jobb och fokusera helt på de sakerna jag gillar att göra, jobba från hemma och bara skapa mitt egna schema. 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!!
SarahApril 19, 2017 at 4:36 am
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 :).
JacquelineApril 19, 2017 at 4:46 am
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. 🙂
Natalia kApril 19, 2017 at 8:07 am
Love these sporty vibes!
How cool is that Tshirt so Eye catching.
Love reading about what your getting up to lately and I agree finding time for exercise is so important both for the mind and the body good luck with that PT I hope they kick your ass ha ha,
ShereeApril 19, 2017 at 8:19 am
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!
marcyApril 19, 2017 at 12:48 pm
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.
Andreea BirsanApril 19, 2017 at 6:55 pm
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
TandyaApril 20, 2017 at 3:23 am
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.
Sharon WuApril 20, 2017 at 3:25 am
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 🙂

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,
