I really ought to…

This is where I go when I feel the need to let go of „stuff“. I focus on whatever thought has been circling around in my head driving me crazy. Then I make a conscious decision to let go. I take a rock and throw it as far as I can. When the physical sensation…

We even got a tree

Earlier this week during our last team meeting this year, it hit me what progress I experienced during the last year. Reading through my bucket list, I was once again reminded how I like to plan things and life turns out quite differently. On Tuesday we will be celebrating our first Christmas unpacked in Germany….

Letting go

Last weekend I had my third yoga teacher training session. We had a different instructor this time and that always changes the dynamics. It was very interesting. Lots of good work with standing poses. It made me feel very grounded and connected but also left me yearning for some growth or maybe just the need to become…

Balancing my Easter eggs

Today is the first time I am writing in my kitchen looking out over a few roof tops. The pale winter sun is trying to break through making the day look a wee bit more friendly. But really, there is a snow dusting on the roof across and I can see the flag at the…

Yoga in the kitchen

This morning I finally took ten minutes for a few poses before my son burst through the door  into the kitchen. (Our new bathroom is too small to do yoga, you know.) Some part of me was hoping that we would move and everything would just magically fall into place. But, well, life is not…

Today Is The Day

Moving Day is finally here. OMG, I never thought I would look forward to moving boxes again. I was so fed up with packing and unpacking just a little while ago. So we have been cleaning (or trying to anyway) all day to get rid of all the dust that gets left behind if you…

Foot prints on the sky

The other day I walked past this tree and saw a pair of shoes dangeling up in the branches. For a moment, the shoes looked like someone had left footprints on the blue sky… The thought of someone walking and possibly jumping across the sky, bouncing off the little white clouds, effortlessly, had something very…

I walk and I breath…

I walk and I breathe. In. Out. Close off my right nostril. Then my left. There, finally, I can breathe properly, evenly. I slow down. My thoughts and my movement. The thoughts keep coming. Ham-sa. In. Out. I started a walking meditation on my way to work. 15 minutes not thinking, planning, rushing, trying to…

There is a first time for everything including a Bucket List

I hope the way I slept into the New Year won’t be any indication about my energy level for the entire year… the festive season seemed to have taken it out of me. Even the fireworks and crackers outside didn’t wake me up. At least my little family slept very well with me… With the…

Snow Snow Snow…. but how do I feel?

It has been snowing all day. I love it. Everything seems to turn into something more beautiful when covered in snow… Sunday we had our first snow ball fight. It was so much fun. My son once again pulled me out of my head, into the moment. Standing behind the house, sticking our tongues out…

I got myself a job.

Finally. The job search is over. You would think that I would be full of joy and excitement. Well, truth is I am not. I am sort of working myself up to it. Everyone around me is pleased, saying things like that is a great Christmas present or such better news than the weather (really?)…

A river runs through it…

The other day I woke up to the fog. All I could see outside the window was some mysterious red glow from the building opposite. After dropping  my son off at daycare I felt like going for a walk down at the river, imagining the silence when all sounds get muted by the fog. You know…
