On the way here I saw my friends thnks giving post. They were at Grands (the biggest BMX race in the world). The past years I have been there with them and now I'm not. Although now is happening something what is been waiting for years. I moved to Spain!
I posted a small thanks giving post on facebook and got some nicest replies on it from all over the world. So I decided to give out some more thanks. I'm thankful every day. Actually just yesterday my friend told me to stop picking on him. I do that continuously. Don't mean to hurt no one, it's just habit how we talk with my friends. I don't know why I do it. It's almost like a game. You better stand up straight and be proud of yourself sort of thing. I'm sorry for everyone who I have been pushing down. I will try to learn away from this habit and instead say more thanks :)
Time for some thanks givings: First I can not remember all. And saying only general thanks it's hard to actually make them feel real. First my own facebook update: I'm super thankful for all the people I have met in my life. You are part of my road leading to who I'm at the moment. And I'm thankful for everyone who supports me with my ideas. And thankful for the ones who keep on inspiring me get even further out of the box!
Thinking about thanks giving I directly start to think how thankful I'm to my mum and dad. My dad is super. He supports me even with my craziest ideas just telling me to go full on. I'm thankful for my mum to hold me back from some of those ideas, also she is one of the most helpful person on earth. I'm also thankful for Katariina Laakkonen for groving BMX in Finland and helping me out with sponsoring and good contacts. Steve McNab comes to mind, he's awesome man and keeps on pushing me forward by telling me: "Outi do you realize that you are a legend?". Pretty powerful words when I'm wondering should I go or not. Sue Walker (who joins the group of most helpful people on the earth with my mum) has gave me so much also an image of what I want to be when I grow up. Tammy and Jeff have open up California BMX scene for me. Jeff has also gave me one more home where I'm welcome to go back. Maria Okas, a person who I haven't even met but she keeps on coming up with different ways of helping me. Thank you! Anne ja Maarit, my oldest mates who have proof that they are to stay. What ever happens and where ever I'm they are the same :) Ville Varis has been so kind to me and he's the person in Helsinki who makes me feel that I'm somewhere in North Finland. Love it. Anne K. and Kaisa were awesome when they came to visit me and my cottage. Also try out BMX!! Okki, my neighbor in Finland who helped me to build a track on my back yard <3 Kari Ormo is wonderful person. Junnu has been keeping connection during last months. It's probably nothing to him, but I like it's pretty cool :)
I travel, train and live by myself. So many random people has become my friends. Vice versa they I have been random to them but they have open up their homes for me. They have took me to be part of their lives! That's wonderful. Last but not least I wanna thank all my readers and my sponsors!!
