In her blog, Ava hopes her readers will find something of value that can help them on their path.
Here are some of the topics she writes about:
Change is the law of life , a post that gives the word change a whole new meaning.
... Love the poem in the post called Success
The road to success is not Straight,
There is a curve called Failure,
a loop called Confusion,
speed bumps called Friends,
red lights called Enemies, and
caution lights called Family
But if you have a spare called Determination,
an engine called Perseverance,
insurance called Faith, and
a driver called Strength,
you will make it to a place called Success!!
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” - Buddah
.... and the amazing post 7 steps towards Embracing Change
1. Know that change begins within
2. You are what you listen to
3. Deposit into your self esteem account
4. Look for solutions not problems
5. Become your own best friend
6. Know there is a huge difference between existing & really living
7. Embrace the Abundance mentality
All 7 steps are explained in detail in the actual post
... and her spot on post called Harnessing intuition to achieve career goals, which not only applies to our careers, but to EVERY AREA of our lives, which is how I personally experienced it.
Ava also posts little Change Tips, which are short but to the point and very useful in my opinion.
I also love the links she has listed under SOURCES OF INSPIRATION
To me each one of Ava's posts have been a pleasure to read as well a mind opener and I can't wait for the next one. I recommend you check it out yourselves :).

Even though we live far apart, Ava in Sweden and me in the Netherlands, we both share the same passion and interest for WHITE and shabby chic interiors, with a touch of Scandinavian Country meets New England meets Provence :). Ava has a great eye for detail and is amazing in transforming any kind of wooden furniture, be it an IKEA book shelf to an old children's bed or cabinet dating back to the early 20th century which she has bought for a bargain.

She has also managed to turn their home into a beautiful haven of harmony. You can probably imagine how much fun we have going shopping together, especially as it doesn't happen all that often. And that is as a matter of fact exactly what we did last weekend when she came for an extended weekend visit together with her little family :). Miss you guys ♥ !!
I hereby want to wish you dear sis
a HAPPY and JOYFUL birthday
filled with LOVE and LAUGHTER ♥
The same wishes go out to Ava's
adorable little son Colin,
my nephew and godson who turns 3
just one day after us, on May 24th ♥
