Hygge? Someone said hygge??

Well, it looks like we got ourselves into a little reblog competition and I do have a great reason as to why I felt compelled to do so. Not only was it incredibly kind from Cyranny to reblog my original post about Hygge, a Danish word for cosines, but I wanted to repay her sweetness and send some love her way. If you have not been to her blog and you love to travel and learn about different locations and adventures, please stop by and be amazed by this talented, kind hearted writer.
Her reblog also made me think of something else I hope to start in the near future and I promise I won’t keep you waiting long. I think that we have a wonderful community here on WordPress and many of us have made friendships that go way beyond the average of reading a post here and there. I’m sure we all would agree that we need even more of it.
Thank you so much Cyranny for your kindness and for making my day. Xoxo 🦋💙

Cyranny's Cove

My dear Rhapsody has posted about hygge. I was about to make her comment box explode with the longest message ever… I couldn’t not say anything about it! What’s more Danish than hygge?? Uh…. Nothing. Period  🙂

So instead of leaving a long ode to Denmark and everything Danish on her blog, I thought I’d repost her! If you don’t know Rhapsody, take a minute to visit her, and tell her Cyranny says “hi”! She is the sweetest, and I know she’ll be delighted to welcome you!

Hygge – pronounced “Hoo-Ga” A Danish word that means cosines. It is a feeling more than a word – it is the ritual of enjoying life’s simple pleasures and making the ordinary more meaningful, beautiful and special. I always knew there was a word describing the magic and the wonders felt from the simplest of […]

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Rhapsody, I follow both your and Cyranny’s blog, so it was interesting to see your blogs cross paths (in a manner of speaking). You both have wonderful perspectives! It’s nice to see that both of you also have an appreciation for northern Europe and, in particular, the Nordic hygge concept of coziness. 🙂

    1. This is so wonderful Brett and I’m glad that all of our paths have crossed. I’m a big fan of Cyranny as well as you and you both inspire me. Thank you. Being from Germany, I will always have that European appreciation and I love to learn about different cultures and ways of life. Thank you so much for sharing this with me and for your kind comment and continued support. Hugs.
