There is


in just being.


When you’re out and about, whether it’s on foot or in a vehicle,

pause to appreciate your surroundings,

really seeing the things you take for granted every day.

You’ll be surprised at how much you missed before!



Have a super joyful week!

  1. Always a good idea! Thank you for the reminder, dear Ute. 🙂

    I remember a time when I regularly had a rather long busride back from work. The sun would begin to set while I was “on the road” and the bus would often be trapped in traffic congestions. It felt like we would sit there, forever. But then I would look out of the window and see the beautiful colours in the sky. And then I always was so amazed. I would turn back to the people inside the bus, look into their faces to see, if they had seen it too. But usually they were so immersed in thoughts or books or their mobile phones that it seemed they had not noticed anything. And I sat there and sometimes felt like I wanted to scream: “How can you miss this and not see it?!”

    I still dislike being trapped in traffic congestions. But I surely did like those sunsets. 😉

    Much love,

    • That is right… even if in a traffic jam , admire the beauty you see while waiting. You cannot move so you might make the most of the moment you have, in a calm way instead of getting upset. And you see you remember the beautiful sunset, a bonus. Thanks Steffi!

  2. Hope your week has been super joyful Ute! Mine has been busy, I am thankful for good health! I had a wonderful time tobogganing with my grandchildren and now the snow is gone after a few mild days. This is Canada though, so that could change anytime. I am optimistic, I do believe spring will come someday. 🙂

    How was you Charleston dance and will you be writing about it? Some photos too?

    Have a happy weekend dear friend!!

    ❤ carmen

    • Thank you Carmen, I have been busy too. Today it seems warmer and sunnier. My dancing went fantastic and it was such fun. I’ll see what I can do with videos as there are other people on it, I can’t just publish them openly. I will do a post on it though. Wishing you a great weekend Carmen!

Love to hear from you......
