Blast From The Past – Instinct Or Judgment?

It’s so hard to not cross that fine line between instinct and judgment. Between making a smart decision because of a gut feeling and labeling someone because of an idea we have… I really try not to judge, I try to keep an open mind. Try to give people a chance to make me see who they are.

I’m no saint. I’m only human and it happens. I make assumptions and then make a decision based on them. You could also call this judging. This year is almost over and I guess I’m in my usual state of reflecting and trying to figure out how I can make myself a better person. I don’t want to fall back into being too polite to listen to my gut feelings but I also don’t want to allow my assumptions to take over. It’s about finding that balance… and hopefully I will 😉

The thoughts about instinct vs judging has kept me busy for a while now, as you can tell when you keep reading my Blast From The Past. I guess it’s a good thing. It means that I try to stay aware of which is which and keep control over it…

Tell Me Something Good #87

Time for a positive start into the week. After all it’s still Monday somewhere in this world, so I’m not completely wrong here… Forgive me for the radio silence but I just needed some days to recover and get organized again. I guess traveling for a couple of weeks throws you out of your routine… no wonder… Anyway, I’m back! Let’s do it. Let’s start the week off 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 my good thing let’s do another happy dance. As you know I love my happy dances and so I decided to just keep doing it. Hope you’re having heaps of fun!Just keep going for as long as you like 😀 And when you are ready, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“Summer has arrived and spending time on the beach and in the water feels so great. Sometimes little things like feeling sand between your toes and listening to the waves make you feel like you’re on top of the world…”

Blast From The Past – Pick Me Up

I remember it so vividly. How easy it was to just pick up my kids. Both of them. It’s no longer possible, as much as I’d like to sometimes. Even if I try they are so tall now…

When they were little and wanted to be picked up all the time I often thought that I can’t wait for it to be over. It’s physically challenging sometimes. And sometimes it’s not just the physical part but also a question of wanting some space. Space they give me now (and sometimes I don’t want it…).

And while they can no longer be just lifted up like this, I think all of us still crave for it occasionally. And when that moment is there, we find a way to at least get to a similar point by hugging and cuddling. The carrying… well that is no longer an option 😉

Hey, I didn’t realize that I skipped so many of Cee’s Share Your World Challenges! But I will answer all her questions of the last couple of weeks in this post, so bare with me. If you have not checked out her fun Q&A challenge yet, you really need to! It’s so simple: Every week Cee poses a couple of questions. You then answer them in a post and link back to her post. And that’s it. No big deal but fun to do. So let’s get to it…

Just keep going for as long as you like 😀 And when you are ready, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“You know all the things you always wanted to do? Go do them! I couldn’t have found a better quote to start this post with today. I’m settling into my normal routine. Normal might be a bit of a big word as there won’t be a normal routine over the next 8 weeks with Christmas coming up and then my usual casual work gig. But I’m back home again and getting into the swing of cleaning again… and other things. Everything feels so much better though. Better because I am so content. So happy. Traveling truly fuels you. And we all agreed that our trip was a trip of a lifetime. An experience you can not top that quick. We saw so much, we learned so much, we enjoyed so much, we had so much fun. We spent time together and grew wiser together. For so long we were talking about taking this trip. We always wanted to. And then we did. We jumped right into it. And boy was it worth it. I know I will be able to get energy from this for a long time to come. So all the things you always wanted to do? Think about them. And then do it!”

For some reason this post got stuck in my Draft folder… a bit late but the week is still young, so go and have fun with it 🙂

Time for a positive start into the week. While Monday has slipped away from me on my side of the World it’s still in full swing on the other side. So still time to start the week off on a positive note.

“Our trip is almost over. Justtwo days left until we will board a plane taking us Down Under again. It has been amazing. Actually I kind of lack words to describe how wonderful it was. All the places we saw, the things we did and learned... And most of all being able to spend an additional couple of days with your wonderful friend who is most definitely part of our family. My heart is full. I’m incredibly grateful for everything we got to experience over the last couple of weeks. This world is such an amazing place. So many beautiful and awe inspiring things out there. Can’t wait for the next adventure, no matter how long it might take…
