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…
No, it’s not a spelling mistake in my title. Although this post is inspired by the movie “Wonder Woman” I’d like to write about wonder women.
Last week my daughter and I had a girls night out to the movies, watching “Wonder Woman”. I’m sure most of you have watched it by now and for those of you who have not, please forgive me when I go into details (or stop reading now). First of all: What an amazing movie! I heard from a couple of my friends about it and every single one told me how amazing and inspiring the movie is. So I was really looking forward to it, wondering if I would find it as amazing as they did.
Let’s go! What would you buy?
All I can say: Thank God it’s winter here! At least I don’t have to worry about a bikini body right now but have basically 4-5 months to get my habits back on track again… not that it’s really about the bikini.
It’s more about feeling comfortable in my skin again and frankly, I don’t right now. So time to get back on track 😉
I’ve been quiet. Don’t you think? There was not much that I put out there with a lot of “meat on the bone”. The reason is simple: I had to set my priorities right. I love my blog. I love blogging, writing, reading your posts, connecting with you, exchanging our thoughts. But it is time consuming. And I don’t mean this in a bad way. Just in a very honest one.
Beautiful, strong, inspiring!
