Those five little words

“I am happy for you”. The art of rejoicing in someone else’s success and happiness is easier said than done.

It´s easy to feel happy for someone when you find yourself in a good state of mind. It´s also a piece of cake to clap for someone’s success when they accomplished something within a field that is not the same as yours. But cheering for someone who achieved something you wish you had, that is the real challenge.

I grabbed a coffee with an old friend last time I was in Paris and we cheered for her recent success of getting into the best school in the country. I found myself being genuinely proud and happy for her. I recognised her hard work and dedication and felt it was more than deserved. Not an ounce of jealousy or frustration in sight. We shared a lovely moment rejoicing in her little happiness cloud and as we said goodbye I felt I took a little piece of that cloud with me. I had a smile on my face, thinking how lovely it is to see hard work being rewarded and feeling at that very moment that everything was how it should be.

But what if I had been depressed that day? What if I had tried and failed at the same exam? That would have been a very different story. I would probably have received her happiness as an aggression. Seeing it as reflexion of my own failure. I know this because it has happened before. But I also know it is not justified.

Others’ successes or failures are in no way related or proportional to yours.

You are responsible of your actions and life and they are of theirs. It makes absolutely no sense to feel better to see your friends fail where you also failed. On the contrary. To progress and grow you need to surround yourself with people who will challenge you, push you forward, not drag you down.

Again, easier said than done. We know all that, and it looks great on paper, but controlling your feelings is something that demands practice, dedication and awareness, knowing yourself and more importantly being very honest with yourself, admitting and recognising your feelings to then be able to act on them.

Definitely something worth working on though, for ourselves and our entourage, because happiness is contagious. Catch it. Spread it.

A grateful heart – love letter from our Editor in Chief

1 of December will always be a special day for me, because that is the day Best of You was introduced to the public. Two years have passed and so much has happened on this beautiful journey.

Best of You has developed from being a blog to become a community where we inspire each other to embrace life wholeheartedly and find joy in health and wellness. A place without diets, rules or regulations, nor a formula to fit in with the masses.

We want you to find what feels good and be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

And seeing that you do, makes me forever grateful.

The emails, the kind words, the hugs, the tears, the love: everything that you share with us makes this the best job in the world. And why waste time on being anything but fully alive?

Thank you for following, showing up at our events, for booking our services and for welcoming us into your lives. We are forever grateful and excited for the future. 2018 will bring much love, that’s for sure.

Girlpower

Yesterday we had a bunch of lovely ladies over for a ladies’ night and what a night it was!

With some bubbles in the glass we listened to makeup artist Mathilda Hedin Ekwall  who gave us some tips on how to apply the perfect makeup. Tips where shared and some also got their nails fixed by the lovely Anh Le while we mingled, talked and enjoyed our evening together. Afterwards everyone received a wonderful Glossybox to bring home.

We want to thank everyone that came, our sponsors and readers. Thank you for sharing your time and positive energy! It couldn’t have been a better night!
