Fall down 7 times, stand up 8

Life is for loving, sharing, learning, smiling, caring, forgiving, laughing, hugging, helping, wondering, healing and even more loving. Love what you do and who you do it with.

Let the devil worry.

Tua’s Kitchen I like my coffee with milk and banana pancakes with fruits and berries for breakfast. Eat well, sleep well and if not today, tomorrow is a brand new day. In the end life is what you make of it. Start fresh, rise up.

”The world can be a nasty placeYou know it, I know it, See, we don’t have to fall from gracePut down the weapons you fight with
And kill ’em with kindness”
My future started when I woke up, learnt my lesson, stood up. Healing is not a one day journey, but the only place I will fall again is a mountain – with a snowboard I’m totally on my knees.

 The expert was once a beginner. If you are willing to learn, one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.  Age is a number; trust me, bigger is not always better.  Except in Japanese proverbs: ”Fall down 7 times, stand up 8”.

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one’s self-esteem -in snow boarding you can not avoid snow -sometimes closer to your face than feet. Humble becomes a familiar word.

Sometimes its good to fall down to see who will pick you up. But make no mistake, when you fall, you don’t get stronger only wiser.

51 year old woman and snowboarding for the very first time is not love at first thought but for sure love at first try. Its a perfect age to learn a new skill. I much rather break a leg than a heart. Can do both.. skiing too. 

Himos ski school: great teaching. ***** Life’s a mountain, not a beach.

You can’t buy happiness…. But you can buy a snowboard, and that’s pretty close. At Himos you can also rent one. And trust me -take a lesson from The Ski School snowboarding instructor when you start and you will also continue.

There is no crying in snowboarding.The pain won’t last, but the memories will and the skills. Can’t wait to get on a snowboard again.


We were lucky to stay at Villa Himo.

Happiness is not a luxury. It is a necessity. Villa Himo is luxury.

Enjoy the snow and slopes. Himos is know of its beautifull quality holiday houses in prime location close to the slopes and the diverse services of Himos

-only 2,5 hours drive from Helsinki.

I was lucky to spend time with Noriko in one of my favorite places in Finland; working, learning, healing, just enjoying life with my dear friend and work partner in AFTER WORK Club.

When life gets you down, find a lift to bring you back up. Work for success and make it happen.

There is a reason why we met. PUSU means a kiss in English, also in Himos.
