Be My Guest

When you are a guest in someone’s house, what is the most important thing for you? Is it how clean the house is? Is it what kind of house it is? Is it what they put on the table in the sense of high end or not products? Is it the way they are dressed, the music that is played, the silverware you use or the plates your meals are served on? Is it the quality of the sheets you sleep in, the furniture you use while you are there?

When I was young I was given the one advice I truly think is the most important when it comes down to guests, no matter if you are a guest or if you have guests: It all comes down to how welcomed a guests feels. And honestly this is my piece of advice to my children, actually everyone too. It’s only about how welcomed your guest feel. How you treat them. The effort you put in. It’s not about the price of your house or the furniture, the linen, the silverware, the plates, the food you put on the table. It’s about the heart and soul you put into everything.

Blast From The Past – The Thing With Keeping An Open Mind…

I wrote the following post a few months ago. The person back then really got to me. Today I had a very different experience which still makes me smile. To be honest it all comes down to how open minded a person is. I hope you enjoy this blast from the past and it makes you think about keeping an open mind because I believe it’s a very special gift and the thing with it is…

Mindful Monday Healthy Living – Choose Your Eating Battles

I thought rather than trying to write about eating habits and working out, I could reblog Colleen’s great post. It’s packed with great info, which I would not be able to give you.

I’m on track. Better than I’ve been, controlling the portion control at this stage rather than really “dieting”. That I will start with the new year, simply because there will be more of a routine for me then again.

Welcome to Mindful Monday – Healthy Living! Each week I try to examine new or sometimes old things about myself on my journey to becoming healthier. I have found that being mindful encompasses the act of being watchful, aware, wary, heedful, alert, careful, or attentive, in whatever area in my life I feel it applies to, as I attempt to live in the present. Come and join me on my journey. You never know what you will learn about yourself.

…to all of you who have left comments and cheered me on and are interested in accompanying me on this journey to healthy living! Together, we can offer support and ideas to make this road to “healthy,” a fun journey!

Last week I had help from:

From World’s Kitchen

The Bee Writes

A Momma’s View

Shanjeniah’s Lovely Chaos

I hope that you will support all of us in our healthy living…

Who’s Body Is It?

I recently posted a fact about amputations in relation to diabetes (see here). Already when I heard that number for the first time I thought of a young women I once interviewed and wrote a story about for a local newspaper.

Your comments made me think about here and what she told me then even more.

Let’s Get Naked

Yep, you heard me right. Let’s get naked. But not the naked you think of. I’m talking about another kind of naked.

If you follow me for a while you might have realized how much I like TEDtalks. Every now and then I post one here and share my thoughts about it too. As I just did yesterday and am about to do now. I found this one while I was looking for the “Stripped Bare” one and of course the title caught my attention.I was pretty sure that it would not be about undressing. Or maybe it would?

Does It Bring You Happiness?

Yes, me too… I will write about it too. And simply because I really have to say something about it, as so many of you did too. It’s not just because there is no way to escape posts (check one of them out here, please), articles or discussions on TV about Caitlyn Jenner. It’s all over the news and the gossip media. I’ve read a few but for sure not all of them. Her journey was always of interest to me, not because of all the crap the Kardashians do on TV.

I have a friend who is transgender. And her journey was far from easy.

How Much Can You Really Relate On The Universe?

cloudsHere it is: I’m not sure if this “trust the universe” thing really works. So often I hear that you only have to ask the universe or even demand from the universe to give you what you want and you will get there. I’m not sure. Here is why: If it would work like that, everyone would do it, right? Because it would be the easiest way to get what you want. And if everyone would do it, nobody would have issues anymore…
