This is a self-reflection post that I will update regularly, and that it’s meant as a personal journal page. I’m posting here because I want to always have on this website a reminder for all the things that I am grateful for.

We all go through difficult periods in our lives. We may be tired, sick, stressed and so on. We may get depressed, anxious, in fear. While we “explore” these difficult periods we sometimes forget the simple things that we’re grateful for, the things that we already have.

We tend forget the journey, the tests, the friendships, the sunsets, the magic of our journey. While we become stressed, we often forget all the beautiful things in our lives. I don’t want to forget anymore!

I don’t care who you are or what your background is, I’m sure that you’ve achieved great things in your life. Just don’t forget about them, don’t brush them off In those difficult times. Don’t forget how you transformed and evolved, what you achieved and where you are going.

This blog post is my reminder. These are the things that I am grateful for.

I am grateful for the 20 years spent with my wife. We are together since we were students in the first years of college.

I am grateful to my wife for that she is the best and wonderful person in the whole world for me.

I am grateful to my wife for supporting me during my healing and transformation journey. You see, it was not easy to stay with me but she did and she loved me even more. My wife is an angel and I am grateful to her.

I am grateful that I can see better now (at 41) than I was seeing at 31. Still no glasses and going!

I am grateful that I discovered my journey, my purpose, my calling in life – and that is the appreciation towards health and the human body (that’s one way of putting it).

I am grateful for my health journey, for all the challenges that brought me to this point in my life.

I am grateful that I grew up in a peaceful country, far away from military conflicts or diseases of any kind.

I am grateful for the soil, sky and water that make-up this wonderful place we call “Earth”.

I am grateful that I have my health and that I can walk many km every day.

I am grateful that I can see and hear children laugh, and I hope that one day I will have children of my own.

I am grateful that I don’t have any kind of pains in my body, and that I don’t take pills of any kind.

I am grateful to my mother who, until dying at 38 years old, did everything possible to help me grow and develop. She influenced me in crucial moments of my wife and I am grateful for this as well.

I am also grateful to my father for the lessons of life that he mirrored back to me (more clear now than ever).

I am grateful that I’ve met some wonderful people in my life and, while I haven’t appreciated all of them at the time, I’ve learned how to appreciate them over time.

I am grateful to the people that forgive me when I wasn’t a good person to them.

I am grateful to the many many people that offer real information in the health space, from medical health to holistic health, to spirituality and mindfulness, and so on.
Many people are doing great work in the health space and I am grateful to them, without them I wouldn’t be here.

I am grateful for every single leaf from every single branch of every tree on this planet.
I am grateful to the soil and all the small organisms living in the soil.
I am grateful to the bees, and all flying friends.
I am grateful to every bird and animal, all of them give us a positive vibration that we don’t even understand.
I am grateful for every flower that is smiling at the world.
I am grateful to nature for nature gives us everything that we ever need.

I am grateful that I lived in Berlin. I am grateful for Norway adopting me, and to the beautiful city of Kristiansand where I started my health journey.

I am grateful that, while in Berlin, I often saw foxes at night in the parks or on the streets. One time I saw two foxes together and that was pure love for me.
