Can you tell us about the last time Beauty helped you or healed you ?
Beauty heals us every day, brings us back to essential, raises us, inspires us. The last time it healed me was nos later than yesterday evening, I spent some time with my son and I think there is nothing like moments shared with people we love. Before going to bed, he said to me ‘Mum, I love you with all my heart’. He sometime says it in french, sometimes in swedish, because I’m from Sweden. It touches me deeply and heals me, especially after a long and stressful day.
How do you bring more Beauty to the world ?
I try to bring Beauty by being very authentic in my activities, by bringing wellness, transmiting my know-how, my soft skills, what I really am. I try to share solutions so that people feel better every day. I think helping others is the most beautiful gift you can give. Bringing meaning, wellness, that’s how I bring Beauty into this world.
If I say Beauty, what do you think of ?
I think of nature, love and, of course, my son.
Do you believe that Beauty will save us ? How ?
Of course I think Beauty will save us ! I even think Beauty is here to keep us alive, to raise us, to bring us inspiration, to avoid us falling, to focus on the essential, on light, on everything that is full of meaning in life. ‘Beauty is truth’ as John Keats said, so of course, I think Beauty will save us.
Do you remember the first thing that amazed you as a child ?
It was probably my sister’s horses, there were incredible. Islandic horses, very powerful and of an infinite Beauty. Wild horses in the Swedish forest.
What is your motto or philosophy in life to make you feel beautiful and fulfilled ?
It certainly to remain aligned with who we are, with our desires, above all to be in tune with who we are, is the key to everything. To know how to listen to yourself, and to progress according to your desires. And also have less stress in your daily life, I think we think too much : ‘Less stress more go’.
What feeling does Beauty arouse in you ? Could you describe it ?
It can be tears in the eyes. I am a very emotional and sensitive person. I find human nature moving : our personal struggles, progression, sharing things with others, pulling us together, observing the daily small caring signs. It’s moving, it’s beautiful.
