4 years – thank you

Standard

Today 4 years ago I posted my first blog post.

 

good moring

 

464 posts later I am still here and

what is more important you are still here with me.

At the beginning I put a post out and watched the stats like crazy,

happy to see every new hit and new follower.

Now I hardly look at stats

and I am happy to have my blog family around me,

all of you ,

who bring me enjoyment and happiness

through my blog and in my life.

 

thank you

 

A huge thank you to all, my followers,

readers and those who comment.

I have learnt a lot in those years

and made great friendships across the world.

You make this blog work and count.

I am very thankful to all and everyone!

Love you all!

Hello February – Gratitude focus

Standard

February is here and it has an additional day this year!

All days full of surprises and miracles.

february

 

Lets make February a month where we focus on Gratitude.

 

How often do you say thank you and really mean it?

What are you most grateful for?

Consider the things in your life you frequently take for granted

like health and love and friendship.

Choose to appreciate them,

feeling thankful does feel good.

Choose appreciation instead of expectation.

Have a gratitude journal which cultivates an attitude of gratitude.

Gratitude is absolutely the way to bring more into your life!
