There is nothing more beautiful than the glow in someone’s eyes when they are happy. I have one specific picture in mind just right now and it’s the picture of my son when he visited the hospital right after our daughter was born and held her for the very first time. As I do not share pictures of the kids on any social media platform I will not put this picture up here either. So apologize for the tease 😉

The one thing that makes my eyes glow every time I see it (besides my children) is what the sun can do to the environment. In the middle of the day, at sunset or sunrise. How it can make things glow (not just my eyes…) and give you create warmth…




Share Your World – October 16th, 2017


Here we go, time for Cee’s Share Your World Challenge once again. Thankfully I’ve just eaten otherwise I would for sure get hungry thinking of the right answer for her first question. What is it all about?

Here you go:

I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

So let’s do it:

How very true. It’s all in our hands. We have control over so much more than we think. And most often we actually know exactly what we want and where we want to head. We’re just to afraid to admit it to ourselves…

Tell Me Something Good #79

It’s Monday here once again (where does the time go?) and time to share something good. You might have seen the quote about the people who make your soul dance I posted this morning. Thankfully I have many people in my life who make my soul dance. Some from way back, some people I only met a little while back and some I only just met recently. And I love all of them. But enough said now because otherwise I have nothing more to share after the happy dance. So let’s do this! Let’s kick off the week on a positive note!

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
  • Share this post and invite your followers as well.

So before I share why I’m so excited for the coming week let’s do another happy dance. As you know I love my happy dances and so I decided to just keep doing it 😉

And when you are done, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“As I said, it’s all about people who make your soul dance. People who make you feel good, people who put a smile on your face just thinking of them. It can be a friend you met through a friend of your husband, a friend you met when you were a child and is just a part of your life no matter what. It can be a friend you met on a holiday, friends you made thanks to your kids and who feel like family. Or friends you met through a new business venture (either personally or virtually). One of those new friends mentioned that it is about finding your tribe and when you do you feel good. And I couldn’t agree more. I do wonder though in a way what makes me part of her tribe as she is a full on vegan, is an activist who is standing up for this world, nature and the animals. And I… well, I am a meat lover. Enough said. But you know what. I understand and value her. She understands and values me. I love our exchange and what I learn from her. So maybe that’s part of being a tribe? Listening, caring but letting each other live the life that suits. So find the people who make your soul dance and enjoy having them in your life. And maybe, just maybe let them know how much you care for them…”


The word believe and what is attached to it is something interesting, don’t you think? Belief in yourself, in others in an institution can come and go, can be used in motivational ways but also in quite a destructive manner.

I thought about belief and mindset a lot over the last months, maybe even years. Not in a religious way, more in a motivational or inspirational way. Or in short more in a way to find something to keep me mentally afloat during tough times. Continue reading

The Critics

It’s been a rough day in my “volunteer office”. A day that made me think why the (forgive my language) assholes of this world actually manage to overwrite the good people. Why one negative can cancel out all the positive. Why we allow the critics take up so much space, why the minority can take over. Life lessons. Lessons that are there to make us stronger.

We are meant to take them on board and grow. It needs the assholes of this world. Maybe even more than the good ones. Because they teach us the stand up again. They teach us to stand up taller. They teach us to grind our teeth and keep going. So shake it off. Move on. Maybe even say “not with me!”

Allow yourself to grow! And don’t allow them to take over…
