Blast From The Past – About Growing Up And Letting Go

Ever day I look at my children and see how much they have changed. I embrace the cuddles, the kisses, the coming over in the night because they had a nightmare. I know that I need to embrace those moments as the kids grow up and soon they will not need me in the same way anymore. Totally fine, totally normal. And yet a lesson that I have to learn and get adjusted to. I’d like to share this post about my thoughts I had about the same thing a couple of months ago once again as a Blast Of The Past.

Tell Me Something Good #75

Image result for Monday inspiration image

Monday is the beginning of a beautiful week. To be honest though, every day is the beginning of something new, of something beautiful. We just have to see it. The last couple of days were interesting. Busy and good on one hand side. Challenging on the other. I will get to this later in another post. This one is all about good things. I find it incredibly important to keep the good things in mind and to focus on them. So let’s do this. Let’s focus on the good thing and hit this 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.

Before I share my good thing, I’d like to do a little happy dance. Yes, again. But I love my little happy dances. They make me feel good. So let’s do it…

Shall we do another round? Of course… let’s keep doing it. You can keep going on and on… and when you feel like you are done, then here we go, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“Today I’m just so happy that we all are happy and healthy and content with our lives. Doesn’t seem like a huge and catching thing, but it’s just so important. It’s so important. Because it’s not a given. We always take it as a given but it’s not. So many things we take for granted are not. Our healthy and happy kids, the love we feel for our partners, our family. The friends we have, that are there for us and support us. Happiness. It’s not a given. Today I’m extremely thankful for having all of this in my life. Health, happiness, love, friendships, trust and happiness…”

Waiting

I sometimes wonder how much time we spend waiting for something, for someone. Waiting for change that just simply happens. Waiting for better times, or maybe even in a sense waiting for the good times to become worse again. We all do it.

But what is it actually good for? Nothing right? Because while we wait for that chance, for that better moment, that better someone, we are totally passive. Instead of sitting in the driver seat and take action. I challenge you to take action. Hop in that driver seat and take charge of the direction “your car” is going, the speed and the road you want to take. Do it ;-)… In the meantime here some pictures that represent waiting for me…

  • Waiting for that kiss of the person you love so much…
  • Waiting for a fantastic dish to finally be ready to eat…
  • Waiting for a message from above…
  • Waiting for the sun to set and the turtle to come back up again to take a breath of fresh air…

Share Your World – September 11th, 2017

Image result for world trade centers and statue of liberty image
It’s overdue! It’s already Wednesday here in Down Under and I have not yet gotten to my favorite blogging challenge of the week! It feels a bit weird to use the date of the actual challenge in the title but I will stick to it. Weird for two reasons. First of all it’s already 13th here in Australia but mainly because this date means so much for all of us. It’s the date the world has forever changed. Nothing is as it was before 9/11 2001… And it will never be. We all know where we’ve been that day and what we did back then and will always remember…
But let’s get to the challenge! Cee is inviting us to her famous Q&A. For those of you not knowing about her challenge, here are some pointers:

“Good morning everyone. I thought I would switch things up a bit on Share Your World. I will still be asking four questions, but the fourth question will be the same each week. The last question will be about anything that inspires you. Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share Your World.”

Tell Me Something Good #74

Image result for motivation monday

I honestly don’t really know how to start this post. I feel so torn. Torn between being nervous and excited, happy and disappointed. Most of all though proud. Proud because there are all the positive feelings that actually weigh in more than the others. And that’s good, right? But before I get into more details here let me just say this: It’s time to kick off this 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 would you like to know what I have to share with you all today? Would you like me to continue where I left it and let you know what I was talking about? Yes? Are you sure? Are you excited? Yes? And you can hardly wait to hear it? Okay, okay… So here is what I’d like to share with you all today…

But wait! How about a little high five action? What do you mean there is nobody around to high five? Hey, that’s really not an issue 😉

I just totally high five-d myself too 😉

So back to where we were. Here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“While we sit in our safe, dry and comfortable homes some areas of this world get a good little example what the force of nature is capable of doing. It scares and amazes me at the same time. So while I sit in my safe home, feeling annoyed about the fact that some bits of my future business don’t work out the way they looked like and also get all worked up about my son not putting his cloths away, others lose their home, all of their belongings, maybe even their loved ones or their life. The good thing is that my family and everyone I love are safe. We don’t have any issues. We don’t have to get prepared, run for water and other things we consider normal. And it puts it all into perspective. A perspective we are often forgetting to focus on, while worrying about things that honestly are not that important…”

Rainbow Colors

Every time I log into my WordPress account the beautiful colors of the rainbow greet me. And it has a very interesting effect on me.

On one side I feel happy. Because, hey, you know, a rainbow is something really pretty and usually makes you feel happy. But then it also stands for homosexuality. And all the discussion that comes along with it. And that’s where the heavy feeling sets in.

Now you probably wonder why I would feel that way and let me set one thing straight: Some of my best friends are homosexuals and I believe that your sexual preference has nothing to do with your character or who you are as a person.
