And heres the answer:

We boys don’t get butterflies, we get fireworks. We don’t have you on our mind 24/7, but we do have you on our hearts. Often, yes we wait for you to go online, sometimes simply even just being online makes our heart skip a beat, even if we don’t talk. Whenever you talk to us, our face forms that half-smile; it means we are happy but are trying our hardest to not show it, and fail at hiding it. We do miss you all the time; granted, we’d spend all our time with you if possible. We don’t think of the smallest things you say, we think of every word you say, panicking at every single word, trying to define what it really means, to read between the lines. But wait there’s more.

We would love you in a million ways. And once we start loving you there is no going back for us. No matter how hard we try we will always love a girl that has touched us. Us boys when in love will think of that girl first thing in the morning, and think of that girl last before we sleep at night. Whenever we see a couple, our thoughts immediately jump to that girl, and imagine that the couple was us. Every single detail about her is loved; the way she walks, talks, speaks. The sound of her voice. Her laughter. The sparkle in her eyes. Her shy smile. The way she dresses. That cute face she makes when she’s asleep. And the way she says our name that our hearts just explode with mirth, a simple act that no-one else can replicate.

A boy in love with a girl is no simple thing, though ladies stereotype us guys as simple. A man in love is not simple. No. He will be unpredictable. He will be persistent, stubborn, and given the circumstances, if it means carrying you from one side of the world to the other to win your heart, a man in love would. He will be a martyr, giving his all and asking for almost none. He will show you how to appreciate the beauty of the world in a thousand ways, and then he will tell you how much he appreciates your beauty in a million ways.

A man in love is no simple thing.

You can make peoples day awesome!

I know that’s a bold statement! But none the less, I both know and am confident in the matter.
How do i know? And how do you do it?

How to make someone happy

You probably already noticed what I’m about to discuss, and you probably already knew most of this, but maybe you forgot, or just really couldn’t be bothered? (I know I tend to forget often).

Have you noticed how, when you are out among other people, most of the people around you, including yourself, tend to look either down at the ground or at the windows of the surrounding stores? This isn’t something bad in itself, but if you really think about how many people do this, and how they will do almost anything to avoid eyecontact, it’s almost ridiculous.

I tend to let my mind wander whenever I’m on my way to work or going home, and the last couple of days, I’ve been trying to see how many people will actually be comfortable having eyecontact and not just turn their heads and look away. Surprisingly few!

Now here comes the revelation. About half of the people who made eyecontact and didn’t instantly look away, half of them glared as if they were trying to scare me into looking away in some sort of animalistic show of power, and the other half just casually looked and then werent bothered and went back to whatever they were doing.
But everyone, every single one, was surprised when i smiled. – The reason is simple; we don’t expect it!

If you expect one thing, and another thing happens, you are surprised (duuuh), and when i flashed a smile at these people, the guys who were trying to make me look away ended up becoming confused and looking away, untill a couple of seconds passed and I could see them smile too.
- The other half simply lit up when i smiled, in a complete show of affection.

Now, the reason why I claim this can make someone happy? Simple; someone smiled at me while I wasn’t expecting it, and I had an awesome day! – So smile instead of looking away, because if you by some chance meet me in a public transportation, you will have made my day.

Kender du det?

Har du nogensinde gået og tænkt over et eller andet fuldstændigt trivielt, og så hørt et par strofer af en sang gennem et vindue og øjeblikkeligt drømt dig tilbage til den aften hvor du mødte den specielle person?
Eller er du blevet ramt af en duft i et kort sekund og associeret den med duften af en person, og taget dig selv i lige at snuse ind en ekstra gang inden dit ansigt rammes af et smil?

Fascinerende men skræmmende

Det er fascinerende at vi mennesker kan leve et helt liv og kun huske en brøkdel af det. – I skrivende stund sidder jeg i Malta på ferie, men når jeg om en uge eller to tænker tilbage vil jeg ikke kunne huske størstedelen af de ting der er sket.
Selvfølgelig vil større oplevelser og indtryk hænge ved, men de små detaljer som var vigtige for at danne sig et helhedsindtryk vil gå tabt i hukommelsens virvar.

For at vise hvad jeg mener, så prøv denne lille test:
I går, hvad gjorde dig første gang glad den dag?
For én uge siden, netop i dag, hvad spiste du til frokost?
- Allerede her vil du nok opdage at du hurtigere kom frem til resultat af frokosten for en uge siden, end du gjorde med følelsen af glæden dagen før. Såfremt selvfølgelig, at glæden du har følt ikke har været noget ventet eller noget der prægede dig i lang tid efter.

Men hvorfor vælger vores hukommelse tilsyneladende uvigtige ting at huske, mens ting som glæde, sorg, kærlighed og andre følelser, let bliver associeret med hvor vi var, hvad vi lavede eller hvem vi var sammen med, i stedet for den egentlige følelse.

Måske vælger vi simpelthen at lade det være sådan for at simplificere vores liv?

Men netop dette er nok også grunden til at vi, som mennesker, konstant sætter os selv i situationer hvor vi bliver sårede. Fordi vi ganske enkelt ikke kan genkalde os en følelse, men i stedet tænker “Så længe jeg ikke gør det mens han/hun er der sker der jo intet ved det” og således skaber en fysisk forbindelse til en anden person eller et andet sted, i stedet for at fremkalde den følelse som vi selv har været udsat for i sin tid og kæde den sammen med nuet.

Kropssprog

Kropssprog

Kropssprog er en integreret del af os og vores natur, og kropssprog fortæller meget mere om dig end du lige går og tror.

Forestil dig 2 scenarier:

1. En person kommer ind på en bar med rank ryg, skuldrene skudt bagud og et smil på læben. Han tager lange afmålte skridt og forhaster sig ikke. Da hans ven ovre fra hjørnet kalder på ham, vender han langsomt hovedet og hilser.

2. En person kommer ind på en bar med krum ryg, skuldrene hængende en smule og munden har form som en streg i ansigtet. Han tager korte hurtige skridt og bevæger sig rundt i baren. Da hans ven ovre fra hjørnet kalder på ham, vender han hastigt hovedet og hilser.

Personen i scenarie 1 fortalte med hans kropssprog at han var en afslappet person med kontrol over sig selv og at han havde styr på situationen. Person nummer 2′s kropssprog fortalte os at han var utilpas, smånervøs og muligvis ikke følte sig særlig godt tilpas i situationen.
- Eller det tror vi !

Han kunne i virkeligheden bare have haft en skidt dag og glædet sig til at sidde ned, eller netop være løbet ind fra regnen og nu skuttede sig lidt fordi han frøs. Alt i alt har vi valgt at tolke hans kropssprog som noget mindre positivt og usikkert, og derudfra dømt personen før vi overhovedet har taget os tid til at tale med vedkommende.

Andre vil altid dømme dig. Lad være med at give dem ammunitionen. :)

Arbejdsglæde

Hvad er arbejdsglæde?

Er arbejdsglæde at møde op frisk og veludhvilet?
- Er det når medarbejder og leder kan have en god dialog kørende?

Mange mennesker vælger at se på arbejdsglæde som at have et job de får mange penge ud af, men arbejdsglæde er i virkeligheden så meget mere. Det er at vågne om morgenen og se frem til at møde op på arbejdspladsen, at træde ind ad døren på kontoret og sige godmorgen, at blive mødt med et smil og en frisk kommentar.

Du er ikke ansvarlig for din arbejdsglæde. Derimod er du og jeg ansvarlige for VORES arbejdsglæde.
- Hvis én person møder op med håret slaskende ned ad kinden og fødderne slæbende hen ad gulvet og man bare kan se at denne her person har en dårlig dag så kan det lægge hele arbejdsmoralen ned. Men hvis personen får opmuntring og smil fra folk omkring sig, så træder den dårlige dag lidt i baggrunden og viger for den glæde og udstråling de andre mennesker har.

For som vi alle ved, er der intet værre end spørgsmålet: “Er du sur?” når man tydeligvis er ved at eksplodere.
Men hvis man lader ens instinkter træde lidt i baggrunden og istedet bare giver personen en håndsrækning, et smil og en glad stemme kan det gøre alverden for den person og derved løfte arbejdsglæden for alle andre når de ser at en person ender med at blive glad blot ved at være mødt på arbejdet omgivet af glade mennesker.

Arbejdsglæde er vel egentligt blot at man kan stå op om morgenen med et smil på læben fordi man ved at man snart skal ses med en flok herlige mennesker.

Burst of laughter

I don’t really have a fancy intro to this post, so I’m just gonna dive right into it.

This is Jimmy Carr, one of my favorite comedians: (Warning; he is VERY crude)

Update: This man is one of Englands fastest thinkers!

Having the world to yourself

Love the rainAbout an hour ago i turned on the computer, and as i flipped through the usual pages to see what else the world had to offer me today, I glanced out the window and noticed the rain pouring gently down.

I thought, “Awesome, I’m going for a run!”, so i grabbed my sneakers, and went for a run.

The purpose of this post, is not to let everyone know that I’m a complete nutter, who just went for a run because I saw the rain. The purpose is to let everyone who reads this, know what they are missing out on.

You’re missing out!

A lot of people will see the rain and think something like “Thank god I’m sitting inside!”, but I no longer dont. The reason is quite simple really, when the rain is pouring down, the world is yours, and yours alone.

Just now, while I was running, I had some relaxing music in my headphones and just let my mind wander while my feet took care of the running.

What I quickly noticed was, that I had everything to myself. No one was outside, because they too hate the rain, and over the 40-50 minutes I was running, all I saw in my otherwise crowded neighbourhood, was two people rushing to get shelter from the rain.

When you finally realize that the rain is just the same as taking a showering and nothing else, you can let it go and really appreciate everything else.

I urge you to go for a run or even a walk the next time it rains and just let your senses take control. Hear the sound of the showering rain and take a deep breath to appreciate the beautiful smell of wet flowers, bushes and trees.

What a 2.000 year old roman had to teach me!

SenecaThere’s this roman who lived about 2.000 years ago and yes, I know.. The same time as the guy who walked on water and stuff – But it’s not that guy.

Lucius Seneca was a roman philosopher who I recently came across. And after buying a book, which holds a number of letters he wrote to his friend and student, I am amazed!

Some of the quotes you hear in everyday conversation, is actually Lucius Seneca’s quotes. Stuff like:

“A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.”

It’s the thought that counts, not the gift.

“A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer’s hand”

Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

Anyway, I’m easily sidetracked and could be sitting here looking up quotes the entire evening before I realized I was doing something else.

- This book is something like, the greatest book of advices ever written. It’s a 2000 year old guy, who’s talking to another 2000 year old guy, and what they discuss, is just as relevant today, as it was then.

I strongly recommend anyone who has a slight interest in life, to read “Letters from a stoic”

Let me leave you with this Seneca quote: “A man’s as miserable, as he think’s he is”

A few lines can change your entire mindset

LaughterThe following text, is a text my older sister put up on Facebook, and in the middle of an otherwise chaotic day, i took a deep breath and realized how awesome everything was. So without further delay:

“After finishing my project (Thank you Michael) I decided to do something extra good for myself.. So I thought, what to do on such a splendid and extraordinary day? – And I found, that everything I do every day, is extraordinarily wonderful here in Nepal… So Cindy and I celebrated the day by doing exactly what we do every day! Because that is indeed wonderful and extraordinary. How lucky a person I am!!!”

(Names have been altered to preserve privacy)

If your brain is connected to your face, you should either be smiling right now, or thinking “.. Awesome!”.
If it’s not, oh well, here’s an imaginary cookie.
