I’ve just read the weirdest, yet most amazing book: The life-changing magic of tidying up: The Japanese art of decluttering and organizing by Marie Kondo (KonMari).
You might wonder how a book about tidying and cleaning (blah, blah, blah) can be described as “amazing”…oh, but it is. In fact, it’s even inspirational.

Ulla Terkelsen er en af de mest kendte danske journalister – la grande dame! Hun har været med og dækket historier overalt i verden og har tilsyneladende levet (og lever stadig) et meget spændende liv, som hun beskriver i sin bog Vi kan sove i flyvemaskinen. Continue reading
It’s hard to believe all the bad things that can happen to your mind and body when you eat something as seemingly harmless as wheat! If you’re allergic to wheat and gluten, okay, I understand that it can make you sick and possible kill you. Continue reading
Pfeew, August and September went by in a heartbeat and it’s been about 3 weeks since I’ve read a book (whoops!). I’ve been traveling for a bit and coming back home and back to work has been slightly overwhelming (not to mention beating off the jet lag). Continue reading
Read a book set in a different country.
Last month, I went to Washington D.C. It was my first visit to the US capital, where I spent 4 days immersed in history, culture and art – loving absolutely every moment of my visit. It was an interesting trip and one that I’d recommend to anyone who’s the least bit interested in American history and culture. Continue reading
Read a book with more than 500 pages. Read a book more than 100 years old.
Reading the Bible is an ongoing process, which I’m spreading out over a year … or more. Just before Easter, I downloaded a Bible App that has several reading plans you can choose according to theme, occasion, etc. Continue reading
Read a non-fiction book. Read a book based on a true story.
I like to think of myself as a runner, although I only run 3 times a week…slowly and not very far (about 2 miles). Nevertheless, I run so therefore I am a runner. Continue reading
Seeing that social media is such a big (natural) part of our lives by now, and that I use it a lot in my own business, it only seemed reasonable to start reading more about it in order to perhaps (hopefully) understand its “ins and outs” better. So when I came across the book A Social Strategy: How We Profit from Social Media by Mikolaj Jan Piskorski, it looked like a good place to start. Continue reading
In life, there’s always room for more education, experience and improvement. It doesn’t matter how smart, skilled and successful you already are…you should never stop moving forward, never stop learning and becoming a better version of yourself. Continue reading
As I grow older, I’ve come to the realization that life’s too short to read bad books. Or boring books…or books that just don’t capture you. Especially when you’re reading for fun (and time is precious). Continue reading
If you want to know what hell on earth is like, just read the incredibly haunting story by Julia Scheeres called Jesus Land: A Memoir. The novel is her personal memoir of growing up in a very strict religious home with unloving (“She has never told me she loves me, or drawn me to her in an embrace.
