MY BLOG



Here you can read about all the different things I am part of. Some tips and advertising. And sometimes something humerous!

In the midst of these coronavirus times, I want to give a small mini-concert from my living room. Many people are having a hard time now and it is difficult to understand the size and consequences of this period that the whole world is suffering. All my performances in the spring and probably a bit into the summer, including a Japan concert tour have been canceled and as a self-employed I now have to live on "air and love" for a while. Many people have a much harder and worse time than I do. We must take care of each other and show concern and generosity. So here's a small musical gift that hopefully can bring some joy!

Al Gore, Bill Gates, Hans Rosling and I were some of the speakers at TED in Los Angeles in the spring of 2009. It was a tremendous experience and honor to be a part of this great event. In the program I would talk right after Meg Ryan who would give a 5-minute speech and read a poem she had written about the joy of becoming a mother but for various reasons it was cancelled. Right after my speech Herbie Hancock and his marvelous musicians played. And behind the stage I had a little chat with Jamie Cullum.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment & Design - technology, entertainment & design. It is a conference with speakers who get 18 minutes each and you can watch these TED talks online for free. My speech is not published because they had technical problems. But later that same year, I was invited to a similar conference in Mexico: "La Cuidad de las Ideas" where I gave the same speech.
Now in these corona times, some of us have more time to read books, watch movies and YouTube features so you want to see my speech you can watch it here:

What a strange world we are living in right now. Everything in my calendar two months ahead has been canceled or postponed until the fall. Then one can be depressed. But I hardly ever feel that way. Instead, my brain runs and I get a lot of new ideas what to do!

In fact, the webshop here in Sweden is the only thing that currently works normally. To make it global is hard these times except my Aloe Vera Products. You can order these in almost every country - from me. Just e-mail me and I'll help you!

I am a Forever Business Owner and sell Aloe Vera products. I highly recommend them now in these corona times.

Choose from various high-quality juices and vitamins filled with C-vitamins that boost our immune system and soaps and creams that keep us clean and fine!

I'm also thinking about doing a mini-live concert in my living room. Is anyone interested? Please let me know if there's a specific song from my reportuar you want to hear!
Here is a music video. Laughter in the rain A little like now - Happiness in the corona...

To FEEL GOOD is probably something most of us want. I often get the question - How can you be so happy all the time? Firstly, I'm not happy all the time, but I'm happy most of time. For me, life is a great gift and I enjoy experiencing every day of it.

Being a woman and born with a disability may not be the best prerequisites for a happy life in today's society. There are so many ideals that we believe bring us joy and success.

When I'm out and doing my lectures, I talk a lot about how I think, what choices I have made and what I think gives me joy and inspiration in life based on my own life and my experiences.

Today is International Women's Day. And I want to bring it to light by telling you what the Fair Trade community does for women in the world. I have chosen to sell Fair Trade products in my shop to help those with the lowest standards in the world.

In countries with widespread poverty, it is undoubtedly the case that women are allowed to pull the heaviest load, and this is also why the international Fair Trade community has always placed great importance in counteracting this, since equality is an absolute prerequisite for developing and socially prosperous societies.

Did you know that the majority of Fair Trade companies have female leadership? This is a result of competent women all over the world who, with hard, innovative work, wills of steel and sisterhood, have organized themselves to challenge oppressive traditions and trade patterns.

But it’s also a result of YOUR choice to choose Fair Trade when you shop. You have the POWER to make a difference.

The theme FEEL GOOD I will develop in the future. Feel free to contact me if you want me to bring up something special.

Well, it went pretty well! I went down in the pool, laid down on my back and and slowly started to swim. My knee hurt but I continued to swim. The advantage of back swimming is that if it hurts, you can just stop moving and float instead. But the swimming facilities here in town has terribly cold water so lay still isn’t really an option, therefor I continued to the other side at leisurely pace and then back. After 100 m it didn't hurt more anyway so I continued 100 m. After 500 m I didn't dare to swim anymore. First try.
 
You think a lot when you swim. A memory popped up in my mind, I stood there on the podium 20 year old and received the gold medals. I had achieved two world records as well; 25 m and 50 m butterfly. I'm not really a competing person, it just happened. In the spring that same year I swam in the Swedish Championship for the first time in my life. I had not realized that it was the SM I was going to compete in. I was just so excited to go to Stockholm, the capital! So great! But I took some medals and then the national team coaches saw me and suddenly I was in the national team. My whole life changed. I started to train five times a week instead of one, I had to quit all other activities and completely devote all my free time to swimming. It was fun in the beginning. We got to go to training camps and competitions here and there. During the summer I impatiently waited for the letter to reveal where in the world I would go to the World Championship. The letter finally arrived and told me that 1986 World Championship would be held in... Gothenburg!!! I thought I’d get the chance to go to the other side of the earth. But the 1,5 hour drive west still gave me an amazing experience! And the world records, they still remain today.

To sum it up, the knee gets better and better each day. It just takes a very long time, too long in my taste! But it is salutary to learn patience and to rest and take it easy. I have received fantastic help from my doctor, physiotherapist and occupational therapist.
I can stand on my leg and with a little help stretch it out but it hurts too much to dare to start walking. But I continue with my gymnastic exercises five times a day and on Thursday again I will swim again!
