Fill my heart with delight [The Spring in me]

I
It is I!
It is I who has been holding back the spring this year. But now I am ready to release it.

So here you go. Enjoy spring while it lasts. Every minute of it.

The Spring is my love
There’s a spring rezzling in the trees
Fill my heart with delight
Rebirth of all kind
Sceneries witch fulfill my soul
Which will tranquilly last forever in my mind

The wind
the birds
the love
the air
the breeze
the hue
the spring
in me

Keyflower and Octocore in Halmstad [I Love my Friends]

Tonight I have visited some of my closest friends in my hometown Halmstad in Sweden. We had a Great time eating, talking  and playing the new boardgame Keyflower. It is one of the best designed Logistics puzzle game I have ever played. Björn Frölich struck in a victory with and unprecedented bonus of 50 points on a single tile.

HardStyle for Life

I also took a short visit to the Octocore Hardstyle dancing event danced like Crazy to some good Headhunterz beats. Check out his great Hardstyle podcast on iTunes and Soundcloud: Hard With Style.

High intensity dancing turns on the Hive-Switch in the brain under the right circumstances.

Helsinki Vampires gives Fiero Moment #Blogg100

Mia Törnblom on Personal Leadership [The 69 Eyes has found their confidence]

You wanna rock (rock)
Nothing’s gonna make you stop
And nothing’s gonna break you up
Everybody knows you’re lost
In the night time, honey
Lost boys

Tonight I have rocked. With The 69 Eyes. My favorite Rock band of them all. Finally they got the concert that they and we deserved here in Gothenburg. They rocked like they never done before. Maybe the have found their live confidence. They gave me a real Fiero moment!

Start with explaining a personal Why

Earlier today Mia Törnblom gave a very inspiring speech about finding you own personal confidence and motivation. She says the same thing as Simon Sinek. You have to start with explaining what each and every person stand to gain by doing something. Start explaining WHY.

Mia is also releasing a new book called “Du Säljer [You are Selling]. It almost the same as as the latest book from Daniel Pink, To Sell is Human. See my blog about Daniels talk here.

Inner strength

You must also find your Inner strength. It is like an account that you deposit positive energy. Then when when the going gets though you can withdraw the same energy. But you can not overdraw your account because that is when you start hurting yourself.

Reflection

You must also have time for Reflection. Do a reflection journal each day before you sleep. It’s kind like the Grateful exercise that I mention before.

Fiero Moment

You should celebrate each small victory each day with a Fiero Moment. Read some about Fiero here the way Jane McGonigal describes it. I got my Fiero moment during The 69 Eyes concert 🙂

Tweetup with United States of Tikka

Before the 69 Eyes concert, I organised  a Tweepup. There a I had a very interesting conversation about life and The Future with Katarina “United States of” Tikka @ustikka. See you at WebCoast next weekend.

Music moments that changed my life & Social Movie Watching 

See the end on why I write this. Here I have picked 3 moments where music changed my life. There are many more and maybe I will come back to them later.

Boney M – Nightflight to Venus

I was 6 years old when the first one hit me. My father and his brother was helping him buy a new stereo. They had borrowed 2 tape recorders along with a brand new Philips Hi-Fi Stereo. We where mixing and recording the new album of Boney M, “Nightflight to Venus”. The opening track “Nightflight to Venus” became my favorite with the cool opening drum beat and the concept to flying to the Planet Venus. This song became my favorite song when growing up and it sparked my interest in Music and Sci-Fi.

Darude – Sandstorm

The year was 2000 and the Uplifting Trance genre was at it’s height. Me and my best friend Ulrika was at a visit in my hometown Halmstad during Easter. We went out to dance at Daltons, the best techno club in town. During the last hour there the DJ played a 1 hour long mix of Darude’s Sandstorm. We danced like there was no tomorrow. The Hive-Switch was on to say the least and we where ecstatic. Shirts off and dripping in sweat. From that day on when the music is right and I’m in a mood, I always dance giving my all. All fatigue goes away and I go into Trance.

Mindless Self Indulgence – Never Wanted To Dance

It was last fall in 2012 when I had just hit level 40. I was asked to come up on stage with the rock band Mindless Self Indulgence [MSI] during their live concert here in Sweden. MSI has long been a favorite punk-rock band of mine. Their live concert has a legendary status to be something extra. And when they finally came to Sweden last year and I got a chance to see them this happens. Check out the Video in my other Blog. As you can see from the video I Rock with the best of them 🙂

Jimmy’s words to me:

“Let that be a lesson to you!
That’s how you get famous.
You just take your fucking opportunities.
Just what anybody says you say:
Fuck it! I’m going to do it anyway” — Jimmy Urine

It was a very empowering feeling.
I now feel like I can take on the world and make a dent in the Universe.

Doc Lounge – Watch movies together in a social style

The reason I write this is because tonight I was at a new type of experience. Doc Lounge in Varberg. We meet up to  mingle in soft lounge like local. There is a bar and later they started showing the documentary style movie The Secret Disco Revolution. The saddest part was that there was no Boney M or ABBA in the movie. They where 2 groups that I grew up with and defined disco me. But other Disco still has a warm place in my heart. After the movie was done we cleared the area before the screen and we stared to dance to Disco music. Something I do with great love and energy. This is a totally new way to watch documentary movies together.

The whole concept with social movie watching is awesome.
