Image result for quotes beautiful week

Another week has passed and honestly it has been a busy but also a good one. Over the last weeks I got to know some people that I knew before much better and I can say that I found some new good friends. My life will go back to normal again now and I’m actually looking forward to have my time back.

Here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. The list is again a bit short as I simply didn’t manage to read as many posts as I would have wanted to. I hope you will enjoy and please, stick around on their blog for a bit longer and discover more. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #11

Let’s just not get there and mention that already 11 weeks have passed in 2017… it would give everything a slightly negative touch. Bottom line is that we have no influence on time whatsoever. The hours pass by with us wanting them too or not. It’s what we make of it that makes a difference.

Frankly, I think that’s my issue at the moment. I feel like I’m not spending that amount of quality time with the ones that are important to me. I will have to change that again and it’s something I definitely plan on doing now.

I hope this week treated you well and that you will have a happy weekend you all. Make the best of it 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #10

We entered a long weekend in our part of Australia. I find it interesting to observe how the “spirit” of people change when approaching a long weekend. On one side they seemed rushed because they feel like they need to finish things, on the other side they feel relaxed by only just thinking about the extra day off. Interesting how one single day can make a difference.

Here are my picks of this week, posts I enjoyed reading. I hope you will too and while you visit their blog have a longer look around. Might as well be that you discover other great posts while there. I hope your week treated you well and that you all will have a very happy weekend 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #9

I find myself wondering where the week has gone once again. It was a week filled with lovely moments (and some other ones too but let’s not hang on to those too much…). I can’t believe that we have entered the 3rd month of the year already and with it we have moved into a new season.

So here is my list of posts I enjoyed reading a lot this week. I apologize for it not being longer, which also means that I have not been able to read a lot of posts. Things will calm down in April again. Having said that, April also marks the month of the A to Z Challenge. A great blog challenge that I have participated for the first time last year and really enjoyed. Am honestly looking forward to covering the alphabet again in form of a post.

Anyway, hope the week treated you well and that you will have a very happy weekend, you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #8

You know how we say that time flies by? Today I had this interesting feeling when realizing that it’s Saturday once again and the end of February is only just around the corner. But then what I did last Saturday at the same time already seems so far away. Time is indeed a very interesting and fascinating concept and I can see why a man like Einstein was so intrigued by it. I can see why we would love to figure out how it works. We figured out a lot over the last centuries… but will we ever figure out something so complex as time? I doubt it.

Anyway, here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most over the last week. I hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend. Happy weekend you all 🙂

I feel like I’m not ready for the weekend really. So much was going on this week and in a way it should not be over just yet. But what can you do? Thankfully we can’t control time (just yet) so I guess I just have to go with it 😉

As I said the week has been super busy, but I still found time to read some posts and here are the ones I’d like to share with you this week. Hope the week treated you well. Have a very happy weekend you all 🙂

Sometimes you find the most amazing little inspirations or motivations while reading other blogger’s posts. Like the quote above that I stumbled across yesterday when I headed over to Beth’s blog. I just needed it in that very moment. And I decided to use it today as opener for my picks of the week. I hope your week has treated you well and that you will have a very happy weekend 🙂

Well, there we go, the first month of the new year is almost history. It was a great month on my side and if the rest of the year will give me an equal amount of great moments it will be a fantastic year.

My list this week could be longer but I did share some of the links in my Mystery Blogger Award post yesterday. I hope you enjoy the posts as much as I did. Please check out more of their blogs. It’s how we connect, how we find posts we relate to and how we build new virtual friendships.

I hope your week has treated you well and wish you all a very happy weekend 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #3

When we started into this week I didn’t really think much of it besides it being the start of the Australian Open. Then I realized that it will in fact have a very special meaning in history with the inauguration of an US president that most likely more than half of the world is worried about. It also brought a vicious attack in Melbourne yesterday.

In this sense this week once again highlighted how close good and bad can get. The joy and good feeling an event can give you in contrast to the heavy weight the new presidency puts on most of our shoulders and then of course the shock and sadness in relation to an act like the one I wrote about yesterday. It’s all so close. And once more it shows that you should not take anything for granted. But also don’t stop enjoying your life. I believe that if we focus too hard on the negative it will drag us down into a spiral that is hard to leave again. So focus on the good. Feed from it. So you have the energy to deal with all the bad stuff that happens and is out of our control.

Now I wish you a very happy weekend you all and I hope you enjoy the post I have chosen to feature here this week 🙂
