When talking to the cat it will give you the best answers
Sometimes there is things to say but no person who just listen without speaking.
Like this morning I just needed to talk to someone who listen without having an opinion. The cat where close at hands so I started just like – It’s cold outside, I wish it was summer, with a warm sun in the sky… and so on, I kept talking about some things on my mind about my journey. It seems a bit odd I guess but does it matter? The cat was like – ok, I hear you, but I don’t care, keep talking…
How strange it might be, it’s comforting talking to animals. Humans usually listen and then they want to give some advice or a solution, sometimes the advice is not what you need but you might get it anyway.
At the moment I have three projects on my mind. One is beneficial for the community I live in. The second one is a long-time dream and will take some time before it’s ready to launch.
This, the third is a bit more difficult. I want to help people to find their smile, to let you find the same opportunities as I have and learn new things that can bring you to find your best life. But I haven’t found the right angle. I don’t know who to target yet, more than I want to let people with Crohn’s Disease to realize their life is not ending just because they are sick. I want to give hope, get this right and useful to others in my situation.
Even though I have an active time with my Crohn’s Disease I still want to help people understand that sickness don’t mean you can’t reach your dreams. The road ahead can be a bit longer but it’s reachable and the journey towards the dream is exciting. You just need the right tools and the courage to grow beyond the limits you think you have. Off course it will be hard at times but there will also be joy and hope for another future. That is why I write this blog, hoping someone feels hope for their future.
I will keep on writing this blog and just sharing what ever comes up on my journey. My goal is writing once a week but sometimes that just wont work and I am ok with that, and I will not punish myself for not keeping the goal all the time. That’s how it is, living with Crohn’s Disease.
The project closest in time
The one project that I think have good potential to be great for the community I live in is already in motion. Every morning before work I am committed to pick up garbage I can se on the morning walk with my dog. As a next step I have contacted a company who can help me show other people how important our environment is, keeping the city clean by taking the garbage you bring out and make shore it will follow you home instead of dropping it in the street.
We are discussing an offer that will benefit the company and this possible movement. It’s a bit of work before everything is in place but building this feels important. There has to be a red thread through the whole project, from the material to the printing and how to market it. That red thread must be organic and environment friendly. The cost is also in my mind, I am doing this as a private person in the first stage. If it goes well, I might start a company or some sort of organisation. Time will tell how it will end up. I can assure you that I do have fun on my journey with this project.
The second project is putting together a book with material of stories about my dog. I have been writing stories sense 2007 and I am still writing them every week. It will take a lot of time to put the pieces together and that work is demanding which means that it will take a long time before it’s even close to be ready for publishing. I think it will be like a form of a coffee-table book with lots of photos connecting with the texts.
I think this project will be a bit boring at times but in the end, I will love to share all the fun stories with a bigger crowd. This is a dream I have had for many years, and I work on it from time to time, when I have the necessary inspiration that it takes. But still, this will be great when its finished.
If you feel inspired of this journey, then hopefully you will start the walk on your own trail forward to find your way to the daily inner smiles. If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask them, there may not be an answer but together we might find some way forward.

See you all until next time and remember to find your smile!
