I am an author.  I represent myself through words, through stories.  I am not a model.  I am not an actress.  When you turn a camera on me, I’m most likely to make a funny face, or at the very least, smile.  In fact, I can probably count my posed, serious photos on one hand.

And yet, as an author I have written a serious novel on a somber topic, and when my publisher asked for a picture to represent me, and my novel, I needed to take a serious photo.  The hair was flat ironed, the make-up was applied, the dress was put on.  I did it all myself, and second guessed it the whole way.

And what if our best isn’t good…

Last sunday I woke up to the terrible news that Paul Walker has passed away.  I remember clearly how I saw the tweet of a friend of mine, “RIP Paul Walker” and I thought this is just another bad joke. But then I saw a text message from another friend, telling me the same.

Looking it up, I quickly discovered that this is not a joke, its reality. Paul had died.

It took me a few days until I realized that this isn’t all a bad dream, that this is true. The shock was sitting deep and seeing my friends mourn, crying over a lost idol, a person that meant the world to them made me feel pretty upset as well. I felt sorry for them, sorry for their loss.

Gi slipp på det som begrenser livet ditt!

Vær villig til å gi opp behovet for å alltid kontrollere alt som skjer med deg og rundt deg. Situasjoner, hendelser, mennesker, osv. Enten det er dine kjære, kollegaer, eller bare fremmede du møter på gaten – bare la dem være. Tillat alt og alle å være akkurat som de er , og du vil se hvor mye bedre du vil føle deg. Da kan du faktisk slappe av:)

Gi opp ditt behov for å legge skylden på andre

This morning I woke up and had this little idea for a project in my mind. To get this project down I need your help though.

What are your definition of happiness? What means “happiness” to you?
What makes you happy?

Just leave me comment here or tweet (@tensh_iie or @noda_flake) me.

I’m excited to see your responses and opinions! Also feel free to share this with your friends, ask your family and just let me know what you got to know :)

Wish you all a great day!
Love,
Trixi
