Midsummer in Sweden

Hello my dear readers!

I’ve been quite busy these past few days. I´ve been actually working at the kindergarten in Lindigö, Sweden – the island of the rich 😂. Then the weekend has been divided between doing school assignments, doing house chores but I even had the chance to grill at my brothers place and I think this was the first party without any alcohol involved which I really enjoyed.

So what was the occasion ? Well, the very known holiday in Sweden where the day is longer than the night – Midsummer.

What do we do except having grill party’s ? We can dance around a huge cross decorated with flowers or enjoy strawberry and rhubarb cake. Many cities organize festivals where you can enjoy folk music.

Summer is the best time for Swedes as they can connect with nature on another level, making the Midsummer preparations more joyous than Christmas. If you ever would like to take part in this magical celebration you must visit Sweden between 24-25th June.

Thank you for reading and I will see you soon with a new post !

A different Easter than the others

Happy Easter to you all! How are you celebrating these special few days ?

I must say that this year for me is much different than in the past years. First of all my kids are not at home, secondly instead of baking and cooking I am cleaning after the renovation I’ve done at home. There won’t be any fancy dinners or going over to family this year.

Honestly, I don’t have any energy for it. The renovation takes a lot of strength, time and money. Nevertheless, I am happy with the results. The place looks stunning, like never before. But I don’t mind doing it next year or maybe even at Christmas, now that I fixed the table and am about to purchase some extra chairs. To be honest I’ve always dreamed about a beautiful home and whole family coming together and celebrating. I’ve got this dream since I was at my step-brothers cousins place. I’ve felt the magic at some point.

But anyways, I am not going to take a lot of time here. I am actually pretty exhausted and sleepy these days and so it’s time for me to wipe clean the floors that I’ve planned these last two days. I am off.

See ya soon!

The Testament

My name is Agnieszka Ratajczak. I’ve lived 27 years, 10 months and 13 days in this world. It’s 2022 and the world is making attempts to change. Yet, the process of change is not easy. Materialism, ego and greed are battled by love, sincernity and spirituality.

Religion is used against those that believe, making them drift away from God. The priests are the devils hidden army, speaking about Jesus and its love and telling people to come to church, mosk, temple or synagogue to meet God while collecting payments. God has created this world, a building is not where we can meet God. The church is not truly a church. As Jesus has mentioned, a church is made out of people who believe in God, the Holy spirit and the Gods son. It is in our subconciousness and our hearts but the devil made a physical place to meet God and thus people go there to create illusions about their person but only a handful truly believes. Being a priest and all the priestly responsibilities should not be monatized, thats not Jesus teachings. We do not need money on the other side and we are not here to live a comfortable life. We are here to work us towards a place in the Gods paradise.

People do a balance walk between being self-centered and overly considerate. Those that meet halfway lead the happiest life’s but they are not many. Those that lose appreciate their losses only when they are at their worst, only a handful actually learned their lesson and makes wise and healthy changes.

I’m walking amongst them all, questioning every step I take, because I do a walk between two worlds. The world of Materialism and Spirituality. And there is not a day that I am not thinking if the way I go about things is right, and not a day that I am not thinking if things could’ve been done differently. There is not a day I do not reflect on the meaning of spirituality and if money are necessary for survival. And so I am walking with the head in another dimension and the body in this world wondering, thinking, speculating how to improve, how to make my existence meaningful. The most precious and eternal are the memories, not the items, properties or social standing. And so I am who I out to be. Someone with a depth and in search of answers for my existence is indeed a puzzle piece shattered, lost, wanting to be found, waiting for enlightment while being pulled by the power of materialism.
