Tell Me Something Good #81

It’s a rainy Monday over here today. And I have to admit that I quite enjoy it. I listen to the rain drops and it seems as if you can see the plants outside soak it all up. Everything is so fresh and green. And I feel good. I feel good and I hope you all can kick off this week feeling good, on a positive note, focusing on all the good things in our lives. So let’s do this.

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.

So before I share why I’m so excited for the coming week let’s do another happy dance. As you know I love my happy dances and so I decided to just keep doing it 😉

Another round? Sure thing! Let’s keep going 😉 I love it. Move and smile and feel good. And when you are ready here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“Having good neighbors is one of the most amazing thing in life. At least I think so. It’s one of the things you can’t take for granted. Over the last couple of years we had always good neighbors but the ones we have now are simply amazing. It’s such a tight knit community without feeling overbearing. It’s that right mix of caring and leaving you alone. I know I can fall back on them if I need help. Personally I find it’s a wonderful thing especially nowadays where so many people just focus on themselves. Definitely something to appreciate…”

I could tell you all about our lovely neighbors we had to leave behind when we moved from Switzerland to Australia. The lovely couple next door, always happy to have a little chat or the family next door whose kids kept our little boy giggling. I could tell you about the other family in the neighborhood with the horses. People I’m still friends with.

I could also tell you about the weird neighbor we had over the first 6 months in Australia. The lady in her mid 40’s who came home with another guy every night, in the middle of the night to then play “Hotel California” full blast and waking not only us but for sure the entire building. I could tell you how I knocked on her door at 1.30am only to hear her say after she turned the music down “oh it’s the neighbors again, let’s just pretend we are not here…” Duuhhh… Well, in her defense, she was drunk most of the time and in hindsight I feel sorry for her. I guess as many guys as she took home as lonely she must have been. Quantity doesn’t make for quality, right?

I could also tell you about the two lovely ladies we had as neighbors over the last five years at different places. The kind of “can I adopt you as the grandma of my children” kind of ladies. The ones that made you feel good when talking to them. The kind that takes time out of their schedule to tell the kids stories or explain something to them. The kind of neighbor that allows you to use their oven when yours suddenly breaks down in the middle of making a roast.

Or I could tell you about the lovely neighbors we have now where we live. The entire street we live in is lovely. The people are lovely. It’s a real community.
