Share Your World – May 22nd, 2017

It’s Share Your World time again. As you know I don’t participate in many blogging challenges on a regular base but this one I really enjoy and so I don’t want to skip it. I find it pretty amazing that Cee manages to come up with good questions week after week. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Have you paid attention to interviews? Have you realize how often people ask the same question over and over again? It’s because they run out of ideas of what to ask. So kudos to Cee. Now let’s see what she’d like to know this time around…

One Word Photo Challenge: Fox

I finally found my way back to Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge. This week she is asking for “Fox” and it made me immediately think of my horse back in the days. Horses of her color are called foxes in German. It’s that deep copper, that warm red of the color of the fur.

Tell Me Something Good #58

Image result for monday motivation

We are all awesome in our own unique way. It doesn’t really matter what other people think, you know. All that matters is what they ones that really care of your think. And if you’d ask them, they would tell you that you are awesome. So take this on board. Believe in it. Believe that you are awesome!

So let’s do this. Let’s kick off this week with a positive thought. By sharing something good, something that made you happy or you are looking forward to .

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 how about we cheer ourselves on a little bit? Is that all? No way! Common, I know you got more of this in you! Cheer for yourself! Because you deserve it! And another round! And another one! Doesn’t that make you feel good?

I think we have one more round of cheering in ourselves. Just one more. And when you are done, here is what I’m going to share with you today:

“I enjoyed a couple of beautiful walks last week along the beach. It helps me reconnect with myself, with nature but also with my dad who has passed away 15 months ago. It was so beautiful to smell the ocean, to feel the sand under my feet, listen to the tiny little waves splashing. And just being myself. And when I then on one of the days got to see the seal taking a break on the beach from it’s journey my day was perfect. It’s not something that is normal around here. So it was a special gift. Something I truly appreciated.”

Blast From The Past – Keeping A Promise

While I watched my daughter the other day playing, I loved to see how innocent she still is. It’s something that I admire. There seems to be no real worries, no real fears. I’m glad that she feels that way. Glad that we can make her feel so safe. Without wanting to try to go crazy I also realize how big the chances are that things can change drastically. Without fault of any of us. Of course that’s the moment my smile sort of goes away and my thoughts take a slight other turn. Suddenly all those numbers pop in my mind, the promises I made to her to keep her safe, the realization that other parents most likely have made the same promises but were unable to keep them.

This is a Blast From The Past about keeping a promise.

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #20

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you had a fantastic week. Mine was pretty good and I started the weekend really well with my watching my first Australian footy game. Only took my 11 years to go see one… A pretty fast and rough game out there and not much protection. A winner and a loser and a lot of people on the outside cheering them on, almost like in real life 😉

In any case, here are my picks of this week. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a very happy weekend you all 🙂
