Life decisions in the middle of a pandemic

Throughout my life, I have often felt stuck at times. Where it feels like nothing is moving forward and the universe isn’t giving any signs for direction. Where you are at a crossroad unsure of which way to go. It is normal to feel like that sometimes. Life isn’t just straight forward, and sometimes you need to go through it to get to it. There is a lesson to learn, and a situation will keep showing up until you have learned that lesson. To become the person you need to be to achieve your destiny.

In March I had a plan. A plan of how my summer would look like. A plan of how the next year would look like. But unfortunately, because of the pandemic, I was, like many others at a loss of directions. I suddenly had to make decisions that were completely different from my original plan. I had to come home to Norway and figure it all out.

Its been a few months since I returned and I have been very actively applying for jobs. The jobs available has been many and diverse, but since we have been faced with an economic crises, the amount of job applicants has been massive and the competition hard. I applied for jobs I really wanted and jobs I didn’t want in hopes that something would come of it. Luckily, it did.

I was considering living in Oslo for a while, but I was offered a job I couldn’t turn down in my hometown, Ålesund. I will tell you more about once the contract is signed! Once I made a decision, everything seemed to just fall into place. I met with the company 10 days ago, accepted the offer 7 days ago, and moved into an apartment 2 days ago. When the ball starts rolling, things fall into place. You just have to be brave and trust your decision.

Now I have moved into a shared apartment that is completely renovated and I have worked on making it my own space. I have always loved decorating and been redecorating my rooms since I was old enough to move the furniture around on my own, to my moms frustration I am sure. At one point I considered becoming an interior decorator.

I have had roommates since I was 16 years old, so I dont mind living with other people. And it is a great way to save some extra money so that we can buy our own place soon. And hopefully own several properties in the future.

I would call my style Scandinavian/bohemian. Although I have no idea and kind of just making it up.

I enjoy spending time alone, creating content, and having a space that is peaceful and organized. And I am very happy with how I have styled it. It gives me a lot of joy to sit in my room, and it is a space I want to hang out in. And it’s such an important thing to have for your mental health.

What do you think? Do you like this style?

I hope you got some inspiration to decorate your own space.
