I’m going to Italy this weekend. I want the kids to have the traditional Midsummer celebration by going to the archipelago with their cousins. Therefore it only feels right that it’s Odd’s weekend. I’m going to an island in Italy to relax. I’ve tried to be strong during these last few months. Or tried, I have been strong. Super strong. Getting through the divorce is among the most difficult things I’ve experienced in my life. It was particularly rough before we announced it publically. That was the worst part. To know what you have coming. I would say that the time leading up to the decision is half the process. It’s also the most emotionally draining part. Once you’ve made the decision it’s tough in a more practical and physical way. I remember how I went to my mom’s house and fell asleep sitting up on the couch. My mom was so kind to bring the kids outside so I could rest.

The first six months of 2017 have really been a challenge, and oh my god, how I’ve struggled. Along with this shaky start my business has expanded exponentially . We almost doubled our staff, LCC went from the Nordic market to entering eight new countries, and with that I have traveled abroad every week. I will probably travel 130 of 365 days at the end of this year. However, I’m always going away on Odd’s days. Right now I feel like a superwoman. I stepped away from a situation that didn’t make me happy. I’m proud over myself for how I’ve handled it with the kids and the fast growing business. New investments are being made and my goal is to make a stock exchange listing.
Still, the trip to the coast of Italy couldn’t come at a better time. I need to sleep and have time to reflect. I don’t know how frequent my updates will be, but I think you’ll understand. All of you readers have been such great support for me through this process with your kind words. I will always be grateful for that.
