“The first thing I did this morning was to watch Youtube clips from yesterdays Oscars, as I always do the morning after. Lady Gaga’s speech after winning the award for Best Original Song was so incredibly heartfelt, captivating and inspiring… Wasn’t it? She cried, and I cried watching it. I got such a Monday boost from the speech that I just had to share something she said in it: ”It’s not about winning. It’s about not giving up.” Ain’t that some very wise words to live by? A quote for life. A quote for success. A quote for entrepreneurship. A quote for everything and every challenge one takes on really. Boom!”

It's about not giving up
It's about not giving up

That’s the text that I wrote in an Instagram post earlier today. It’s now 8:30 in the evening, and I’m still SO amazed, and still SO inspired by that video clip of Lady Gaga’s thank you speech, and by the words she said… Amazing how a stranger can have such an impact on your day, your life! Lady Gaga truly is one of the most inspiring human beings on this Earth. I’ve never been much of a fan of her style, but as a musician, actress, and human being – WOW!

Speaking of inspiring human beings… I was a bit saddened by the new that Karl Lagerfeld had passed away last week. What an icon! It’s always sad when icons like him die, but at the same time, we must have hope that there will be new inspiring icons. And well, Lady Gaga definitely is one of the new icons, in so many ways! ★
