The year was 2012, I had been very tired for a long time. I lived as a "normal" university student who had ambitions both within the academy and my hobby, equestrian sport.
I had 1 year left of my studies at the Campus in Helsingborg within Strategic Communication, Digital Media. I lived with my former boyfriend, who also studied on campus, in addition to the studies I rode my two horses, competed on weekends and a part-time job where I could control my workinghours. It sounds like a pretty common life? The only thing that nobody did not even reflect on was how the different parts affected me both physically and mentally. Was I happy in my relationship? did I take time to rest or pushed my body too hard to cope with horses, jobs and studies? Am I good enough? Did I have good relationships with friends and family that gave me energy? And did I really care about myself before I cared for others?
All of these questions are so important, but they are easily forgotten.
I did not even know that those questions were important to ask myself, I really thought this was how it was supposed to be.
In October 2012, something happened that made me take a break. I spent a lot of time with the family and "life" got caught up with me. I allowed myself to rest, reflect, and while it was very overwhelming, it was extremely much needed. I came to ask the most important question of all, is this life? Should it be like this? I have done so much in a short time, but I do not really remember what and I cannot say I was happy or felt happiness. Why did I feel so unmotivated? It was not like me, I was always motivated and liked taking on projects. Always curious.. So what happened when I took a break ? The body said 'hallelujah' and decided to take the opportunity to show to me how it really felt.
In spring 2013, my journey began to change my lifestyle and pay for what I subjected my body to. It was not conscious as I lived untenably, I think many of us live so and suppose it's life. Then we wake up one day and have different fights or realize that the body does not deliver as it did before and is almost completely unaware of why.
