My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #27

What a weeks it’s been. The cold that has been lingering is back in full swing and I can’t stop thinking of how hard it hit me two years ago. I hope it will not get to the same point. While my energy levels are low I still feel so good. Maybe it’s because my body is slowing me down. It makes me sit still for a moment rather than my kind of rushing around. Sit and think.

I realize how much weight has been on my shoulders for years. And it all has lifted quite quickly a couple of months ago. I’m not saying that everything has sorted itself out but a major thing has. It’s pretty amazing to see how much it does to you. How much it influences you, your well being, your day to day and even your looks.

Anyway. I hope you guys are all well and had a fantastic week. Here are the posts I enjoyed reading a lot over the last couple of days. I hope you will enjoy them too. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #26

Somehow the weeks seem to not speed past me in the same way they did last year or at the beginning of this year. And still it’s already Saturday again and the beginning of yet another month. We have officially past the middle of the year. Today we woke up to an icy cold morning with clear blue sky. I look outside, reflecting on the past 6 months and can’t help smiling. So much has happened. So many things are in the making. I feel good. Tired, a little bit overwhelmed but good.

It’s never too late to take on new adventures. Life is never set in stone. It’s you that decide if you want to keep walking on the path you chose or if it’s time to switch. Sometimes it takes courage, especially when the new path looks so different to the ones everyone else is walking on. But then so are you. You are different to everyone else. So be brave. If it feels right, it’s most likely just what you need…

Happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #25

It was an exciting week for us on this side of the world. Not because something incredibly important worldwide or in Australia as such happened. Nope. But because something important happened in our family. It’s called reaching your double digits. My baby has now also a double digit age. And for her it was a massive thing.

So we were busy preparing for the big day and her party of course. A party that turned out being smaller than her usual ones. Just because now it’s the way she likes it (and me too, to be honest).

So now that the house is all back to normal, my feet are all warmed up after standing in the cold, watching the girls play soccer, it’s finally time to create this post. Here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most last week. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did. As always, please do check out more of the blogger’s posts while you are “over there”. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #23

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning here in the Melbourne area. It’s chilly but clear blue sky. A fall morning you can only dream of. Soon we will be heading out to my daughters soccer game. A typical Sunday for us. What is special is the bond the kids have but also the parents. It’s always like catching up with family.

I hope you guys will enjoy the posts I picked this week. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

I think one of the most important things in life is accountability. So I kind of hate that I didn’t live up to it in regards to My Picks Of The Week post. And I’m terribly sorry that this post comes so late this week. Somehow I simply ran out of time yesterday and then I actually forgot to put it up late at night.

In any case, here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. I hope you like them too and please stick around on the blogs and check out more of their posts as it will be worth it. Have a very happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #21

Did you think I forgot My Picks Of The Week post today? Nope, just trying out a new time slot, that’s all.

We have now truly hit fall and the days are just stunning. I have mentioned over and over how much I love fall. It’s the crisp air, the scent of the leaves and soil, the warmth of the sun. I love being outside during this time. I guess I have started being more in the moment again over the last couple of days and somehow it seems as if it has slowed down time. I don’t feel like the week has gone by as fast as all the others. And yet I’m surprised that it’s almost June. Crazy, right? We have soon reached the middle of 2017!

Well, I hope you get to be in the moment over the next couple of days, get to enjoy the weekend and hopefully spending it with loved ones. Here are my picks of this week and I truly hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

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 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #19

I was thinking about how fast the last week passed by once again. I know why the days seem to fly passed me over the last months. I know that I don’t live in the day, in the moment at this point. My mind is focused on things that are in the future and I can’t help myself. It’s this constant thinking about that moment in the near future that robs me of living in the moment. It’s that focusing on that one day that makes me speed through the weeks without really noticing what I’m doing and when. It’s the reason why I have to think for a moment when people ask me what I have done on a certain day.

Frankly, it’s an awful feeling and I know it needs to go. Because all I have is in the moment. Nothing is certain just the one thing that is happening right now. “Live in the moment” I tell myself over and over. And I know I’m getting there again 🙂

Hope you enjoy my picks of this week and I wish you all a very happy weekend 🙂

Sitting here typing along and suddenly our cat jumps up on my lap. He never really does it. He is a loner, not a typical cuddle cat. But for some reason he feels like it today and I don’t mind. I know my slight allergy I get from his hair will soon kick in and sneezing and itchy eyes will be my companion for a couple of hours. I don’t mind right now. I love the fact that he is happily sleeping on my knees now, purring and warming my legs. By the way, it’s not my cat in the picture above 😉

I think we both need this right now.

Here are my picks of this week. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have an amazing weekend, filled with laughter and happy moments you all 🙂
