Some true stuff!


I have to admit I love Instagram. (If you would like to follow me my Instagram name is @bag_all) The reason is that it is short and sweet. No long texts, the images gives you a peek into the life of family and friends and strangers who perhaps inspire you. You can follow and be followed at a distance and it makes us all feel closer.

If you have read my blog for a while you know that I also love sayings.

Instagram + sayings = perfect combo

There is an explore page on Insta where I guess some gigantic computer at Facebook (who owns Insta) finds images that might interest you based on who you follow, what pictures you have liked etc. Sometimes this computer gets it really wrong, for instance it shows me tons of pictures of knitting. See I am not particularly interested in knitting, my sister is a big time knitter and since I follow her and like every single one of her images, the computer assumes I must love knitting haha.

Anyway, the other day it showed me an image from Paolo Robertos Insta. Paolo is a Swedish ex-boxer, a fitness guru, yogo guy, turned chef. I couldn’t really care less about boxing and food, to be honest. But I truly love sayings and he had some awesome ones on his insta: 1paolo2

And so is this!!FullSizeRender

I know a lot of people, women in particular, who have a tendency to worry about things, keeping them awake at night. I used to be like that myself, but over the years I worry less and less as my life pretty much has showed me that things always work out and challenges are here as teachersnot as punishment. The faster you can learn from your challenges the faster they will go away.FullSizeRender_4

Paolo is not only great at finding quotes but he is also not afraid to tell it like it is. These are a couple of quotes from his Insta:

06.30 AM The comfort zone is probably a nice place. The problem is nothing grows there except your stomach. Nothing in life that is for free whether it is a healthy and fit body or a good career and business. So, the day you stop wishing for things and start doing things stuff begins to happen in your life.

05.55 AM Yoga! Either you can be in shape or you can have excuses!

06.15 AM Sweat is just fat crying! To work out at home eliminates all excuses! The most common excuse for not working out is the trip to and from the gym. People are saying it takes them two hours to work out, trip included. Well if you do it at your house 15 minutes a day is enough.

I often get the question how I manage to do all the things I do and the answer to that question is simple: I PRIORITISE! Stop playing on your phone, go to bed on time and drink modestly. Today I can get up early, before my kids are awake and work out. That way I will be a happy and energetic dad during the day.

To me Insta is so genius. I get to see Paolos and other peoples point of view. I also know where my friends are and what is going on in their lives. And I get to share parts of my life and what is important to me.

Have an awesome weekend friends!
