HOW TO FIND YOUR SOUL SISTERS

Finding people that are like yourself and have the same interests and passions as you is absolutely wonderful – but, how do you find them?

 

Today I want to talk about how to find people that are interested in the same thing as you are and have the same passions, more accurately said, how to find your soul sisters.

 

1. Get to know yourself first

Before you can attract any of the right kind of people into your life, you first of all need to know yourself. You need to know what you like, what you don’t like, what you are really passionated about etc.

Do some soul searching; read books, try new hobbies, journal. Find your own interests first.

If you don’t do this, then you are likely to just follow what everyone around you does, and that might not be something which is aligned with who you really are as a person. So a very good first step is to first of all get to know yourself.

2. Share your passions

How should people be able to find you, if you do not show your real interests and passions? You might have an Instagram account showing all the parties yo go to, even though you most of all just enjoy drinking tea at home, having great talks, journalling and watching documentaries.

But, if you portray yourself as someone who does the opposite just because you think that is what society wants of you, then how on Earth are the people who have the same interests as you, going to find you? Good question, they aren’t, because what you share and show is not who you really are.

Once you start sharing your real interests, thoughts, ideas, passions – others with the same interests can find you and you can connect. This can be a hard one, because what are other people going to think about you liking ‘yoga, Chinese medicine, herbal teas, crystals etc.’? This is where you need to step outside your comfort zone, and not care so much about what other people might think of you. Be true to yourself, and to who you are as person, and what your interests are – and eventually, the right people will find you.

Start going to events which are exactly in alignment with your interests, whether that be starting a yoga practice, going for a sustainable event, or going to hear an inspirational talk from a person you admire!

 

3. Take action and reach out

Finding new soul sisters is not something that just happens. However, I gotta say Instagram is such a great platform to find people with similar interests, just use relevant hashtags and then you can very easily find new people.

But, how do you go from being ‘Instagram friends’ to ‘in real life friends’?

You gotta take action.

I have gotten 2 of my amazing friends through Instagram. The first one reached out to me and asked if we should get a cup of something together, and so we did, now we have been friends for over a year. The other I reached out to, and now we have also been friends for a long time – and now all 3 of us hang out together as well, because we share the same interests.

Really, just try to reach out to people – the worst thing that can happen is that they say no thank you, but the best thing that can happen is that you get a new friend for life!

 

Have you tried meeting people through Instagram or other kinds of social media? Or, have you considered reaching out to someone?

TILBAGE TIL DET VIGTIGE

“Julen er hjerternes fest ❤ Hvis dit julehjerte banker for bæredygtighed, bevidst forbrug, klimavenlige hverdagsvaner og inspiration til et grønnere liv, så er Sustain Daily Julestafet til dig. Vi viser dig hver dag i december, hvordan du kan tage dine grønne værdier med ind i juletiden.

Dette er låge nummer 13 i Sustain Daily Julestafet, og i dag skal det handle om at finde tilbage til hvad julen virkelig handler om.

Julen er efterhånden godt over os, og for mange betyder det julestress og jag. Det synes jeg er noget så ærgeligt. For dengang jeg var lille, så var julen den bedste tid – og der var ingen stress, ingen gaver der skulle nå at købes, eller noget med at man skulle nå dit og dat.

Dengang handlede det bare om at nyde den der helt specielle stemning der kun er i julen. Det var magisk, og selvom jeg også var glad for gaverne, så var det mere det med, at det handlede så meget om nærvær som virkelig var det vigtige. Alle de aftener man sad og så julekalender sammen med sin familie, julebag med familien, juleture i Tivoli, og at drikke te og spise gode julekager og snakke.

For det er i virkeligheden dét, som at julen virkelig handler om. Nærvær. At bruge tid sammen med dem man holder af og elsker.

Julen er for mange blevet en årstid der handler om gaverne og det materielle, og at man skal finde den rette gave, huske at få pyntet op, og stresse over at gøre klar til gæsterne kommer juleaften – så man kan hurtigt komme til at glemme hvad det egentlig er det hele handler om. Og det er synd.

Nærvær

Derfor vil jeg gerne opfordre alle til at tænke lidt over, hvad julen egentlig betyder for dig. Prøv at lade være med at stresse over de mindre ting, som alligevel ikke er helt så vigtige. Vend istedet for tilbage til det vigtige – tilbage til hyggen og nærværet.

Brug mere tid med familien og vennerne, og det behøves ikke indebære at du disker op med hjemmelavet konfekt og julesmåkager, hvis det ikke er det du har lyst til. Så køb istedet for nogle, eller smut en tur på café og bare nyd hinandens nærvær og selskab.

/Then it became Monday and time to look back at the past week’s pleasures. While you’re reading this I’m in Thailand with my boyfriend. But I’ve planned some blogposts so there will come something up on the blog while I’m away.

Jeg har mødtes med og drukket matcha latte med søde Emilie <3

/I’ve met with and had a matcha latte with sweet Emilie <3 

Dagen efter mødtes jeg med Ida og Carolina, og Carolina har lagt en lille opskrift op på en skøn te opskrift som skulle være god til huden på hendes blog, så den har jeg drukket nonstop de sidste par dage

/The next day I met up with Ida and Carolina, and Carolina have shared a tea recipe on her blog which should be great for the skin, so I’ve been drinking it nonstop the last couples of days

Lørdag var jeg til en skøn yin yang yoga klasse med Cathrine

WEEKEND VLOG

Jeg har haft en skøn weekend, og jeg fik filmet lidt hist og her og bixet en lille weekend vlog sammen til jer. Jeg er blevet elle vild med at filme og lave små videoer, jeg synes simpelthen at det er så hyggeligt – og jeg håber også, at I derude kan lide at følge med i dem.

I denne weekend tog jeg sammen med min veninde til Louisiana Museum og så på nogle fine udstillinger og bare nød smukke Louisiana. Efter et par timer deroppe var vi simpelthen så trætte – så jeg tog bare direkte hjem og dovnede max med noget te, læste lidt blogs, og senere lavede min kæreste og jeg noget lækkert mad og så videre på The Hunger Games filmene (vi har lige set alle 4 de sidste par dage). Dagen efter lavede jeg en smoothie, slappede godt af og senere tog min kæreste og jeg ned og trænede, handlede ind og efterfølgende gik jeg mig en tur i det fineste vejr med Martiny Podcast i ørene. Skøn skøn weekend!

Jeg håber at I også har haft en skøn weekend, og ikke mindst at jeres uge er startet rigtig godt!

I’ve had a wonderful weekend, and I filmed some of it here and there and mixed a little weekend vlog together for you. I’ve become so into filming and making little videos, I think it is so much fun and cozy – and I hope that you guys enjoy them as well.

This weekend I went to Louisiana Museum together with my friend and saw some art exhibitions and just enjoyed the beautiful museum. After a couple of hours there we were so tired – so I just went home afterwards and relaxed with some tea, read some blogs, and later my boyfriend and I made some lovely food and watched more of The Hunger Games movies (we’ve seen all 4 the last couple of days). The day after I made a smoothie, relaxed a lot and later my boyfriend and I went to the gym and exercises, bought groceries and afterwards I went for a little walk in the lovely weather with Martiny Podcast in my ears. Lovely lovely weekend!

I hope that you’ve had a wonderful weekend as well, and that your week has begun great!
