"Everything for Sweden" is one of my favourite swedish tv-shows.
It's about a bunch of americans who get the chance to go to Sweden and get to know more about their heritage and ancestors. Of course it's a competition as well...
This show is very emotional but also very inspiring and instructive.
Did you know that between 1850 and 1930, 1,2 million swedes emigrated to America?!?!
Today there is about 9 million people living in Sweden... But at that time almost 1/5 of whole of Sweden left for the states. That's incredible.
The reason of that big emigration was because of the povetry here 150-100 years ago.
Today Sweden is one of the richest countries in the world. I believe that it's important to remember that this haven't been the case always. Especially today, when our world gets colder and harder for every year...
Anyway... here is a shot I took a couple of years ago. It's from this beautiful place called Mjällom in the northern part of this country. I visited that place with my friend Philip, who is from there.
I haven't had the chance to go back for three years now... but I hope I can go there soon. I miss the nature. I miss the people. And I miss the tranquility of that place...
I made a bnw edit of this photo also... Going to upload it on my bnw account soon.

Here is yet another oldie. Lack the inspiration to take new photos...
Have been powerless for weeks and it gets dark so early here in Sweden, and it's impossible to take nice photos without any light.
Otherwise I'm still playing the waiting game... This waiting is killing me! Gaaaaah. I just want everything to be over with!
It's impossible to get a new start when there's still so much left to do with the passing of my mother...
But when all this is over with... Omg! I'm a free man! Well, not free, but I wont be chained like I'm now.
So many doors are going to open up for me soon. I can't wait!

Here is a photo I took last year I think. It was autumn and a real color explosion everywhere! That's the best thing with autumn, all the colors. They make such beautiful photos.
I love colors anyway and want more of it in my life. It's so refreshing.
What's your favourite season? Mine is summer still. I love the sun and the warm climate.
We need more colors anyway in this world. Don't you agree?
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Keep on spreading the love!❤️

This pic is from my bnw account @uncolortheworld and is one of my absolute favourite edits ever by myself.
And no... the moon isn't real at all. It took forever to edit this photo.
In all this madness going on in this world, I believe it's important to remember and appreciate all the good things in life. To cherish the things that you are proud of and to recall all your amazing memories, achivements and experiences. Even the smallest of things can bring you great joy.
But don't do one thing... Never dwell upon your bad memories. Try to learn from your mistakes instead and then leave it all behind you.
Unfortunately we are so bad at learning from history. This world is truly going to shits.
Now I'm just rambling and lost track of what I was supposed to say. Hahaha. So bye bye.😂

My life contains of waiting at the moment... Waiting to get well enough to work, waiting for a certain person to move away, so that we can finish everything around my mothers passing, waiting for my salery, waiting to find that special one, waiting to get a real vacation, waiting for summer, and waiting for better times in general.
This waiting game is so boring!
One thing that makes me laugh so much and has helped me during my sick leave, is The Graham Norton Show. It's the funniest talkshow in the world probably! Graham makes his guests really comfortable and they are having so much fun on the show.
To have a talkshow like that would be amazing. Yet another dream that never will happen... haha. Check it out on Youtube!
Episodes with Jennifer Lawrence are a sure winner. She is just hilarious! Jennifer is my woman crush... Hahaha.😜

"In my dreams I'll always see you soaring by the sky
In my heart there'll always be a place for you
For all my life
I'll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am there you'll be
And everywhere I am there you'll be"
.....
Everytime I think of my mom, I get reminded of how unfair life is! Mom mother worked so hard her whole life. Still she never had a lot of money to spend and didn't indulge herself at all.
She was looking forward to her retirement so much! There were so many things that she planned to do: travel abroad and spend time with me and my brother (she lived a 1000 km away from us the last 13 years).
8 months after her retirement, mom got the news that she had cancer. Half a year later she passed away... This is so f-ing sad! It makes me so angry and frustrated when I think about this.
But this have thought me one thing - Never wait! If you want to do something, do it now. And spend time with your loved ones. You should always live in the now, but don't be reckless (as I have been all my life). You just never know when it's too late...❤️

So, I'm under the bridge again. Hahaha. The story if my life... Or at least for the last few years.
I'm sick, have inflammation in my joints and problem with panic attacks.
But I'm not broken. I feel strong in a way I can't describe.
I'm out for justice this time. Nobody is ever going to treat me or my family bad again! I will fight back until there is nothing left of me. We will get redemption eventually. Our time on earth won't be in vain.
People may try to break us, but we are only going to become stronger. This have been the story of my familys life...
One other thing: we always forgive, but we will never forget!
Love is something we have an endless amount of in our family and something we always love to share. But love is also a perishable... Something we stop giving to people who don't deserve it.

I'm not feeling that good at the moment. Don't know if I'm actually starting to get sick or if it's the anxiety, or a mix of both. Probably the latter.
Had to go home from work anyway. Couldn't focus or breath and had serious problem with my stomach.
Need a couple of days to recover myself. I'm listening to my body much better these days.
My old self would probably have kept on going until I crashed and burned...
Oh, here is a shot I took today on my way home. It was raining like crazy. It's from outside of my work. And no, the moon isn't real! I do love editing my photos!

One of my absolute favourite shows ever is "Chef's Table" on Netflix.
Everything about that show is awesome! To listen to these inspiring people and their life stories are so fascinating.
Yes this program is about food, and food is as you may know the best thing in the world for me. But this show is so much more!
These people, who have succeeded in having a top 50 restaurant in the world, have amazing stories to tell. The struggle, their mishaps, the bad reviews etc etc. But they never gave up. They had a vision and a dream and dared to give everything to achieve their goals, no matter what other people said.
I love watching driven people and listen to their stories. How can they be so determinated?
I wish I had 10% of their determination!
Whenever I need inspiration or want to watch beautiful food be made, I put on this tv-show.
Some of the chefs I can watch over and over again. Especially Jeong Kwan, the 60 year old buddhist monk who make food to her community. She is such a badass! Can you be more zen then her?
Oh, here is a heavy edited photo from a street here in Stockholm that I almost walk on every day.
PS. My mothers funeral went ok. It was a sad but a beautiful day with most of our closest friends and relatives present. May you rest in peace, my angel on earth. Going to miss you forever❤️

In about 30 hours, my mothers funeral will be held. I have been to so many funerals already in my life, and I don't think anybody likes them... I certainly don't!
This will of course be one of the hardest funerals ever in my life... But it is nice to close this sad chapter in my life.
I am always going to remember my mother and all the love and support she gave me! But who is going to take care of me now? I really need to find me a man... I have my brother, but life is going to feel a little more lonely, now that both my parents are gone.
Don't let time go to waste! Cherish the time you have left with your loved ones. Every day, week, hour and minute counts, because you never know when the people you love will be taken away from you. And somehow it always feels too early...❤️🌹

For the third week in a row, Bill Skarsgård is nr. 1 on IMDB's Starmeter! On third place we have Alicia Vikander and eight place belongs to Alexander Skarsgård.
I'm not sure, but I think Bill is the first swede who tops the Starmeter. Of course it's because of the role as Pennywise in the movie "It".
Well three swedish persons on that list is amazing anyway.
Oh, here is a shot I took last winter at Skansen. Do you see the reindeers? Have a great weekend!

Sometimes memories are all we got... and I hate that my memory is really bad. It's so foggy! Can't explain this, but I have more and more problems getting a clear picture of my most precious memories. And it's getting worse for every day.
I don't want to forget my mother and father. My memories of them are all I have left now.
I'm also sad that I don't have many pictures of my family. Nobody except me in my family likes being on photos...
Something that will never disappear though, are my feelings towards my parents. My memory may fade but never my feelings!
Oh, here is a really old shot of a friend playing around in the water/trees. It was a real hot summers day... I miss summer already. Only ten months left.

In exactly one week, my mothers funeral will be held... That is the first step of getting a closure on this sad moment in my life. It's just too bad that there are so many things left to do... To sell her house etc are going to take months!
I have also started to work again. Not really happy nor sad about it. It just is what it is.
Isn't it strange that people who lose somebody really close, have to go back to work almost directly? People should get at least one month off from work (if they wanted to), with 80% of the salery or something... Because now it feels like I haven't had any time to grieve at all.
Here is a shot I took a couple of months ago of my friend Tobias. Had totally forgotten about it!
Be safe y'all!

Do you ever feel the urge to leave everything behind, and just run away? To go into the wilderness and be all alone in the nature? I get those urgess all the time.
First of all I miss being out in the nature. The benefits are so many! It brings calmness, harmony and peacefulness to body and soul.
It's also a way to flee from all the stress, the people and all the bad things happening in my life. And to get rid of all the material things that we are so dependent on...
I miss our family cabin far far up north so much! I long for the day I can go back there.❤️

I have such a hard time sleeping. Not a new problem though. I have had many periods in my life with difficulties to sleep.
Of course there's more problem with this when I'm stressed or have anxiety etc.
The biggest problem is when I have these periods with insomnia, I actually don't want to fall asleep I think... Usually I think: New day, new possibilities! But when I'm feeling anxious I think: New day, more problems, more anxiety and more stress.
That's why I also feel comfort being awake at night. It feels like nobody can hurt me. That I'm the only person awake in the world. That there are no problems at all. I have always felt safe during night time.
That's why I like to work nights, love to sleep long into the day and also like vampires. Hahaha.
I think I need some professional help... So I have asked if my work can provide me some, which they probably can. I'm so exhausted at the moment! I just need a break from everything! A real vacation would be so nice. But I told you guys that yesterday.
When all this is over, I'm going to be so grateful! Remember to live in the now, because it can all be too late if you wait...❤️
Oh, here is a shot I took today of my friend Serdar. My favourite turk ever! Today we ate free lunch at work, window shopped clothes for hours and had a coffee at Dunkin' Donuts🌹

I don't understand why there are so many bad people in this world? People who want to hurt others willingly... For me that's totally incomprehensive. I just can't understand this.
I really need a vacation! I have to get away from Sweden and leave all this shit behind me for a while. I can't even remember when I had a real vacation last time... Was it Barcelona three years ago? One week on Malta last november with my family was wonderful, but you can't call one week a vacation.
I need someplace peaceful and sun, a ton of sun!
Anyway, I miss Barcelona so much. It could be my favourite city in the world. Here you have an old shot on me under a palm tree in Barcelona. Good times!

It's only six days since my mother passed away, but it feels like ages ago. How strange is that?
I have this hole in my heart at the moment. I feel so empty. Can't really explain why or how though. I also have a big lump in my stomach. Have had it for months... Of course it has to do with my mothers disease, but also my economy, and the aftermath that comes when a close relative dies. It's so much work and stress! Hundreds of phone calls to make and e-mails to write, arranging of the funeral, emtying my mothers house, clean up the place and also sell it... Plus we have to find an apartment for my mothers boyfriend (it's impossible to get an apartment in Stockholm if you don't buy one and costs loads of money we don't have).
Soon I'm starting to work as well... and I'm so exhausted already. All my vacation was spent taking care of my mother.
Last night I went to a rave and danced for over five hours in a row. That was the first time in a long time that I got my mind on something else than all this bullshit in my life. I really have to dance more!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! ❤️

Yesterday my beloved angel, my dear dear mother, took her last breath... She did it while I was patting her forehead with one hand and holding her hand with the other.
Words can't describe the emptiness she left behind. I have never met a person who was so considerate and caring as her.
She was loved by so many people! Thank you for everything! Thank you for being the best mom me and my brother ever could get.
I'm not a religious man, but I hope there is a heaven with all my hearth. Both you and dad belongs there.
Rest in peace. I will never forget you and your love. ❤️

Is there light at the end of the tunnel I see? I don't know yet, because the tunnel is very dark and very long still...
To see somebody you love more than life itself slowly wither and die, is really terrifying! It's like an neverending mental torture. Everything in life seem so dark, pointless and meaningless.
But I can still see a spark, a shimmer of hope. Because when this is finally over, I know that my life will become much easier. So many new doors are going to be opened. There will be endless of possibilities for me and my brother. It's just a shame that the price of this better life, comes from the cost of losing both our parents at a very you age...
