It’s raining outside and I’m warming up from standing on the sideline of the soccer pitch once again, cheering for our girls who did a fantastic job. I love to see their dedication, their commitment but most of all the great team spirit and friendship. It’s not only them. It’s us parents too. One amazing group of friends. And I tell you: It makes standing in the cold so much easier 🙂
Here are my picks for this week. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a wonderful weekend you all:-)
I do feel glorious today. Actually for days now. It feels like walking on clouds, dancing… I hope this feeling will last…
Stay tuned for my picks of the week…
Danny is a very inspiring person. By simply asking his Questions of the Day or by posting his videos. One of the last ones is about judging. And I actually found it funny to watch and listen to. There is Danny, sitting in a chair on the beach and he starts talking about all the people on the beach and how he realized that he suddenly started judging them.
I often wonder what actually is unusual. Is it something we see that we don’t see on a regular basis? Is it something that is not according to what we consider normal? Is it something that simply stands out? So many things, so many situations can be unusual. Achievements of course as well. So I tried to put together pictures of things, moments that I consider unusual. Let me know what you think 😉
A friend of mine that we have met right after we moved to Australia and has since not only moved back to the States but then to Dublin, Ireland, is now about to move again. It will not just be one move for her and the family but two. First they will head back to the States where they will be for about 6 months and then they will move to Pretoria, South Africa.
Have you ever considered digging straight through the Earth? Have you wondered where you would end up, or thought you would end up somewhere specifically? Well this might shed some light to your fantasy adventure. Have a play around ;-). I just went swimming in the big ocean somewhere between the States and Europe…
I keep thinking about the cha-cha quote I posted on Monday. About how life’s about those steps forward and then some back again. It is like dancing actually.
Do you remember when we were young and went out to dance (oooh… that sounds as if I’m so so old…)? When the girls stuck to one side of the room and the boys to the other? How usually the girls were dancing and the boys watching? I remember it very well.
I simply can’t let go of it. I can’t stop thinking of this wow moment I had pretty much one week ago. Standing up there on this lookout. With this almost never ending forest underneath me. That view. I realized then and there what it means to be truly in awe. What “taking your breath away” truly means.
I crave to go back there. I want to stand up there again, feet at the edge of the lookout, my gaze on the horizon. Taking it all in. Feeling small and big at the same time. Realizing how much you are part of it, of everything. Realizing how little we all are compared to this abundance of nature.
People often talk about vibes and for a long time I considered it blabla. Years ago though I realized that there are vibes. Vibes between people but also vibes of places. You either connect or you don’t. You either feel good or you don’t. It feels right or it doesn’t. Or then there is this in between that almost doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter because it doesn’t really leave a mark. It comes and goes, disappears faster than it happened almost. There are people like this, people you simply don’t connect to. There are places like this. Places you don’t mind staying but also don’t really mind leaving anymore, you pretty much don’t care if you ever come back there or not.
And then there are the places you connect to. You feel good being there. In fact it almost feels like you merge with it. As if you grow together sort of. It’s like this boost of life, of energy, of happiness that gets to you, fills you up, feeds you, nourishes you, rejuvenates you.
You walk away so much richer than before. Not just because the place did all of that to you but also because you were able to actually experience something like this. Making you feel tiny but also so so big…
The firs thing I saw when I opened Cee’s Share Your World post of this week was this picture of cheese. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m Swiss or if it’s just because cheese is oh so good that it caught me right away. I don’t even know what it’s all about but I’m sure I find out right away when I get to her questions. If you like a little Q&A then head over to Cee’s blog and check out all her Share Your World posts. I’m sure you will have a blast…
