Moments Matter / Momentaufnahmen

When I take my son to school we walk along this stream. He still holds my hand. Or I am holding his, depends how you look at it. He usually talks a lot. Some mornings we are both quiet. Today we were laughing about something all the way. Last week we heard a woodpecker, but…

Day 7: Back on track… almost

If I have learned one thing this week, it would be this… changing eating habits while being stressed and out of town is, well, was in my case unsuccessful. I didn’t go full out. A couple of slices of cheese here, a cup of coffee there, a glass of wine to round it all off…

Day 1: No cheese, Gromit. Not a bit in the house! (Gulp!)

Well, this is not exactly true. We do have cheese in the house. But I decided I a few days ago that I would embark on a 60 day vegan journey. And today is day 1 of 60 without cheese… and without coffee. After reading a blog about a convinced carnivore completing a 60 day…

Day 24: Settling in

I am more than half way through my attempt at 40 days of yoga practice and found this week that five days on and two off worked with everything else going on. I even managed to avoid too much protest of my son in the morning. With all these other things on my mind, I…

Day 10: Finding balance

I completed the first week of my 40 days of yoga and then took one day off. Actually, it worked out quite well. Even though I did not make it to my yoga class at all this week. It is always amazing to me what happens to the mind once that attitude shift has happened….

40 days is a revolution…

This could be day 3. An impressive one at that. After a weekend dedicated to mantras, twists and vibrations I am still resonating…. The intense practice, beautiful mantras, no chitter chatter in my mind at last. One mantra after the other keeps humming in my mind instead. Yogapod, the studio where I used to practice…

Day 11: Finding treasures

I came across a little treasure today. Another blogger that found me and me finding her blog called luvwhatuce in return… a little treasure box of inspirations. The following five statements are great reminders of what can be rewarding in our lives. Fill in the blanks with your own words… 1- “A goal I’m currently working toward…

Day 10: Abundance

Piping-hot vegetable soup, home-made banana bread for dessert and a cup of tea. Whenever I make time to cook I love the result. This is such an easy way to connect with what is good for body and mind… Savoring time well-spent on nourishing food. Watching my son and his friend stirring the dough, giggling,…

Day 9: Happiness

Some days happiness seems to grow out of experiencing the small everyday things. But then there also days when life is full with that bursting-out-at-the-seams-with-joy kind of happiness… Share it!

Day 8: Grace

I have taken to asking for grace. Often my yoga teachers suggest to ask the universe for what I need to today. And I have taken to asking for grace. Having the grace to let go of things. Having the grace to accept what is. And having the grace to do so with love. I…

Day 7: Boundaries

Oh how easy it is to place limits upon myself and what I believe to be capable of.And how difficult to set boundaries with others. Clear lines… drawn in the sand at times get washed away quickly by the next wave. Then I build a „bridge“ to stay above the water surface. Creating another set…
