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…
So let’s do this. Let’s cha-cha!
Let’s kick off this week on a positive note. By sharing something good, something that made you happy or you are looking forward to .
- 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 positive thing with you today how about cha-cha-cha? Forward and backwards, and forward and back. Over and over. Having fun, enjoying the rhythm. Are you having fun? Do you still think it’s such a bad thing this forward and backward thing? It’s all about what you make of it, isn’t it. So dance 😉
And when you are done, here is what I’d like to share with you today:
“I find it an amazing thing to see passion in someone. The way they speak about the things they are passionate about, the way they approach them. How it becomes part of them. My son has this massive passion for animals, specifically reptiles. While sometimes it almost gets a bit much for me to listen to all he knows about them, I watched him explain things to a friend of ours today and answer all her questions. When he walked off she told me how impressed she was not only about what he knew but also the way he explained it and the passion in his eyes and words. I tell you, it was one very proud mommy moment :-)”
I guess when you get away during the week it makes you feel like you were given two weekends. Still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it’s Saturday today and not Monday.
Here are my picks for this week. I hope you enjoy them too and wish you all a very happy weekend 🙂
