…a day to enjoy travels …

I traveled North to Oslo for a short trip.

The first thing I saw in Oslo was the beautiful flowers everywhere in open spaces.

Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; 
they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.

Specially now in Summer

the flowers are the most vibrant!

Enjoy them!

They really do make the Earth laugh!

Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in the future?
Candidate: I think I will still be using mirrors in the future.

 

 

A group at a MENSA (IQ 150+) meeting were having lunch at a local restaurant when one noticed that the salt shaker was filled with pepper and the pepper shaker was filled with salt.

After a lengthy discussion they determined that they could swap the contents to match the correct shakers. All they needed was a straw and an empty saucer.

They called over their waitress (IQ much less than 150) and pointed out their concerns. Without hesitation she switched the lids, said “problem solved”, and walked away from the now shocked and silenced Mensa table.

 

 

 

Have a fun day with lots of laughter!

….. a day to smell…..the world.

 

Wherever you go today

wherever you find a flower,

put your nose closer and smell the scent.

Soon you will notice that even different roses have varied scents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A feast for your nose today!

 

Live simple,

love well,

and take time 

to smell the flowers

along the way.

Mark Twain

…a day to surprise myself.

I surprise myself and the world around me.

I do something no one expects me to do.

for example

I go dancing

I greet strangers with hello and a smile,

I put colourful clothes on which don’t really fit together.

I might be really quiet today as I am usually loud, or vice versa

It feels liberating to do something different for one day,

to get out of the ordinary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What did you do different today?

….. a day to do something ordinary but make it joyful

 

Many things in daily life are normal, and habit,

but with more attention they can turn into a little joy.

For example:

Put a fresh T-Shirt on – Smell and feel the freshness,

When you dry your hair – feel the warm air,

Wash your face – enjoy the water splashing on your skin.

 

 

 

Simple things can bring joy.

…a day to slow down…

 

Nature does not hurry,

yet everything is accomplished. 

Lao Tzu

 

 

 

 

We all dash from one place to another-

slow down with mindful walking.

Take slower breaths,

watch your feet as you place them on the ground,

and bring awareness to your body as it moves.

Take your time,

just as nature does!

Another Year – 7th Blogiversary

Standard

My blog is 7 years old and I am sort of archiving my old posts

onto another wordpress site as I don’t really want to lose any.

(not sure though if that is really necessary)

I just cut and paste so I don’t need space for pictures on that.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Looking through old posts and bloggers who followed is nice but also makes me sad.

Some have gone to heaven, may they rest in peace, they are not forgotten.

Some have just stopped blogging for an unknown reason,

some closed their blog, it does not even exist at all,

some made their blog private.

 

I enjoy blogging very much,

it makes me happy,

and if I can reach even one person who likes a bit of my posts,

I am happy.

I don’t always have time to read all blog posts I like .

I have made amazing friends all over the world, met some of you

and I will try to meet more of you personally.

To all my blogging friends

a super BIG THANK YOU

 

 

You don’t know how much you mean to me.

You have enriched my world in those last 7 years,

you have made me laugh, cry, think.

I learnt from you, you inspired me, you supported me

and showed me what a wonderful world it is

with you in it.

 

There is so much love and kindness out there

and we need to spread it as much as possible.

People need love, hugs, appreciation, kindness, peace, praise,

understanding and self esteem.

Let’s keep it going.

I feel truly blessed with all of you around me.

 

Love you all!
