It's a feeling

It's a sense of one particular energy

It’s a movement

It’s an energy through this one move

It’s a jump

It’s the blood that rushes between your heartbeats

It’s a style

It’s an introduction of who you are

It’s a picture

It’s an imagination of a hidden dream

It’s a breath

It’s a way to get enough oxygen into our lives

It’s a dream

It’s a passion that drives it to life

It’s me

It's who God created me to be.

.... In the studio ....

" You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace...” isaiah 55,12

Wandering out in joy as I went to NYC to study dance, and bein led forth in peace as I did my audition in Stavanger and got accepted. A lot of sweat, tough training, perfection and choreographing ANOTHER FACE has paid off, & I smile by the greatness and faithfulness God has shown me. I’v experienced an enormeous support of cheering and prayers from family and friends, and I’m deeply grateful and touched by your warm thoughts. Thanks yah all ☺

His Promise is True

" And we know, that in all things God works for the good of those who loves Him, who have been called according to His purpose. " Rom 8, 28

" Humble yourselves then, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He, may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. " 1pet 5, 6-7

I'm back from NYC in my small home town in Norway. I'm still processing some big culture changes & I try to get used to these major differences that have shocked me a few times. Like how there are so few people I meet when I go outside, or how the stores are closed between 5 and 8 pm, and how I'm not able to get frozen yoghurt, and how people never say hi, please or thank you, and how I cant go take any dance class I want any time. How we always meet people at someone's house and hang out there, and how I think, why not walk a couple of hours cause I don't have anything else to do.

The things that are uplifting and smilefaces though are all my beautiful friends that I'm meeting up with again, the time spent with my family, the breathtaking landscape at the seaside of south Norway, coffee and norwegian chocolate..

To be in this preparing phase for my auditions and not knowing what result I'll get, not knowing what comes up next can be frustrating, but God has made me rest & trust in Him, and all who knows me can testify that God has done something inside of me, cause usually I want to know what will happen next, and if not I am stressed out and I would be making a few back up plans. But what God has started in me, He will finish. :)

A girl who struggles. We don't even have to ask what the problem is do we? We’d sense the core of it pretty much right away. It IS more or less issues like beauty & boys, dreams, the longing of experience exciting adventures, the hope of making a difference, the hope of being a girl who matters.

Every morning we wake up in hope of a good hair day, and hopefully we won’t use hours to find clothes we’ll feel comfortable in. But HEY, the hair IS a mess. & the clothes we planned on wearing doesn’t feel right anymore. Our best friend compliments the pair of jeans we just bought, but those words could pretty much be said to a total different person, thats how distant those words feels to us.

And thats when we start thinking.. If I was beautiful.. If I just was different than ME. If I just could mean something special for someone. If I just was enough. Or less...

Captivating” a must-read-book-if-you-are-a-girl by John & Stasi Eldredge puts it beautifully this way;

When God created this world He finished His masterpiece with Eve, a WOMAN. Woman is the crown of the creation & she bears an image of God in a way only the feminine can speak. God is relational to the core, that he has a heart for romance, he longs to share adventure with us, adventures you cannot accomplish without him, a beauty to unveil, a beauty that is captivating and powerfully redemptive.

BUT who am I to feel beautiful? Who am I to be worthy a love unfailing and true? These thoughts are girls daily challenges.

OUR hearts DO matter more than anything & the desires and dreams that we are trying to make a whisper, they speak about the life God created us to live. & if we believe what God says about us, that we ARE enough. We don’t have to be less. & we DO have a BEAUTY to unveil.. Will not that put an end to a bunch of unnecessary hours of sorrows, sadness & hopelessness, and rather fill us with a confidence that who we are NONE but me can be. Will not this truth change us inside out & set us free to be the girls that God called us to be :) ?

I went for a walk after putting my make up on , fixing my hair and dressing up in brand new clothes.... After a few minutes I was hit by a terrible thought.

I didn’t get any attention!

NO one stopped and looked at me to comment;

I LOVE your shoes, your jeans. I...just love everything! I didn’t hear... beautiful eyes! NO one went by saying, GoRGEOUS or PRETTY girl or Ouuuu...

So I thought, If I just walk some more there will definitely be someone that will give me at least a little bit of attention, maybe just ONE compliment...

& I walked....and walked ..

... and in the end I just had to realize that norwegian boys wasn't quite aware of how this worked, how to treat us girls. Us princesses. I wanted to give them one more shot, but after one week without ANY boys opening the door for me, pulling out the chair for me or helping me out when I have to much in my hands I came to realize.....

EVEN a princess has to face some challenges

" Be strong & take heart all you who hope in the Lord " psalm 31, 24

God is so faithful & He works in a way I'll never understand. He opens & closes doors so I can walk the way that He has for me, and delights in. Who knew I would end up in NYC ? I was, after all, so sure I would be going to Australira. NO! Was it London. No... Australia.. or maybe rather Stockholm? LOLolol. I prayed that God would teach me this particular year, more about who He is, and that I would get the opportunity to use my time to build friendships and to dance to get a new joy for dance.

I’m now amazed that I’ve been blessed with an AMAZING church... that I’ve got friends for a lifetime, GOOD friends, and that I’m in love with dance more than ever before.

My last hours in NYC couldn’t get more enjoyable. I spent some sunny hours with my best friends doing what I love the most, coffee & cookie, hang out & laugh, talk & just having a BLAST.

Not to mention that my amazing friends spent their saturday night following me all the way to newark airport...:) <3

Annie & me in Central Park

.. eating The Most Delicious cookie

with a cup of coffee

Gathering my favorite friends at Starbucks

to create some last few memories just here

my bags are ready to leave.... I'm not quiet there.

Three bags. Three boys.. and one lucky princess :)

Marielle, don't EVER forget me. I'm serious

I don't wanna leave you my princess ...

Hanging out with you is just TOO much FUN

like... I can just be myself

I don't even have to do anything and I stILL have a blast with you

It's true. We've become & we'll always be, friends forever

THIS kid is something else...

He says I always put him in the danger zone ...

So it seems He's rather happy I'm leaving

my friend Aldo just wanted to get some attention too :p

So here we are... on our way to this wrong place

You can do one more smile....

& I guess the airport can be a fun place after all...:)

Lost moment....
