Day 24- A letter to your parents

Day 24- A letter to your parents (I will start with this blog topic when I begin again on Friday)

Hi there, Hope everyone that has been reading this blog has been somewhat intrigued...:) I have to take a few days off from blogging, because I am going to a seminar at 6AM tomorrow, but I am not  giving up on it, so hopefully you will keep reading upon my return. Thank you once again for reading... :) 

Peace, Sigrid

Day 23- Something you crave for a lot- Nov. 8, 2011

Day 23 of this 30-day Challenge and the thing I crave most is Swedish candy, salted black licorice, anything with Marzipan and of course anything dark chocolatey...:)!!! There is nothing quite like Swedish candy and salt licorice here in America! Living in San Diego is a plus for me, because there is an IKEA, so some of my Swedish cravings do get satisfied regularly!

Peace, Sigrid

Day 22- What makes you different from everyone else-Nov. 7, 2010

Day 22- What an interesting question...! I have been told that I am different from "other girls, women, people" my whole life. I am not quite sure that I have ever received a completely honest, in-depth answer to these statements! I believe that we are all different, that we all have unique characteristics that we bring to the table and share with one another taking turns both teaching and being schooled.

I like to laugh a lot. My family and friends are extremely important to me. I want to change the world through my own actions by being the change I would like to see in it! I love to exercise. Music and the arts are some of my many passions. Traveling is in my blood. I love being involved in Real Estate, it's what I do...

I am not sure if some of these things are what makes me different... In fact I think that which makes us all different are our life experiences. Perhaps being raised Swedish in an American Society could be one of the numerous ways that differentiates me from most others...

Peace, Sigrid

Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future

Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future may be a tough one for me to blog about. 

You see as of right now I am not sure that I see myself marrying or being with anyone at this point! It is not that I am jaded and do not believe in love or marriage, because I do whole-heartedly. I am currently working on me and I am not ready for that aspect of life right now, so I do not have a clear picture of what that looks like for me! As I work on myself, I am constantly changing and growing through the lessons I learn, which in turn changes the life partner I see myself with. Does that make any sense? I do know that integrity and friendship will play an important role... 

Peace, Sigrid

Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them- November 4, 2010

Day 19 and now we have to come clean with nicknames that we have and why we have them... It is funny that I can't really say that I have a lot of nicknames currently...
Growing up I had several... One was Sunny and I think it came from just being light and happy most of the time... Then there was Ice Princess when I was in high school. I think it had to do with me being kind of a prude.. I am not quite sure. I graduated to Vanilla, which was the opposite of my best friend whose nickname was Chocolate and that stemmed from my fairness and her dark hair and beautiful olive complexion. We were always joined at the hip and on those rare occasions when we were apart people would always ask us, "where's Chocolate?" or "where's Vanilla???". From there, I somehow had acquired the nickname Zena from a guy friend that frequented a drinking establishment that I worked in. Then, of course there are the really important ones that I have earned such as Mom, Mommy, Mama, etc...:))) My grandmother had some wonderful Swedish nicknames that she had bestowed upon me such as Solstral, which means sun ray and of course my dear ol' Daddy who has called me Ziggy for as long as I can remember and my beloved Mommy who calls me Siggan with a Swedish twist!
I love them all and consider myself fortunate to have people in my life who felt endeared enough to me to give me a loving nickname to honor theirs and my connection.
Hope your night is peaceful... Sigrid

Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have

Day 18 of my 30-Day Challenge! I can't believe it's already been 18 days since I began this blog! At first I dreaded it and now I look forward to it... Time really does fly when you're having fun!

Some of my Plans/dreams/goals include: I plan on becoming a successful Realtor in San Diego. I dream about inner peace and learning the art of quieting my mind. I look forward to living, loving and laughing my way through the confusing labyrinth of life with those that I hold dear to my heart... 

Thank you for listening to my voice...
