Monday Musings: Life Lessons #9: Make Space

... and the rest of the 42 life lessons that I was supposed to write about once a week after I had turned 51. Well, in a couple of weeks I will be 53 and most of my life lesson ideas are hiding out in a Google document. So instead of torturing myself and dragging... Continue Reading →

Old endings and new beginnings

In the blogosphere where I like to hang out, people are doing their end year reviews. Looking back at the ups and the downs, obstacles, lessons learned, mishaps as well as miracles showing up when least expected.

But mostly because my Mum is... Continue Reading →

...and the pink will follow you. You know when you are pregnant and all you see is mum´s with big belly's. That´s how it is for me except that I´m not pregnant :-). Pink is showing up or is it that it has been there all the time but it´s only now that I pay... Continue Reading →

False Expectations or?

Once is OK, twice is a habit so now I have to catch up. I´ve fallen behind with my writing due to lack of inspiration and too much going on in my head. But what is the best remedy for an occupied head? Journaling and writing of course! There are certainly a lot of other... Continue Reading →
