You are loved! Someone or something within this universe loves you. There is someone looking up to you. There is someone willing to help you. Just ask. You are loved! If you don’t show up for work, without a warning, your colleagues might wonder or even worry, where you are. If you go quiet on your blog, your Instagram, there will be people asking themselves … Continue reading Love – L – A to Z Challenge
Sometimes life takes paths that we do not want it to take. Sometimes things happen that we know will happen, but that we do not want to happen. There is a thing called death, dying, loosing a loved one, that we are never completely ready for, even if everything points into that direction. Last month, just 3 days, after I posted my #1000Speak post, my … Continue reading Compassion, I never asked for it – #1000Speak
Today, is the 20th of February 2016. Today, I am 27 and a half years old. Today, my blog is 345 days old. Today, my daughter is 2 years, one week and 6 days old. Today, the 1000 voices speak for compassion mouvement, #1000Speak is one year old! Now, that is a real reason to celebrate, because half years are no longer celebrated once you no longer a a toddler.
Over the past year, I only participated twice in the #1000Speak for Compassion mouvement. I wrote about the topics of gratitude and forgiveness. Even though I only joined in twice, I read many many posts that other bloggers wrote on the topics of compassion, listening, love, forgiveness, gratitude … One of the first times that I came across the mouvement, was during the A to Z Challenge, the blog in question has been retired, so can not even check what this very first #1000Speak post that I read was about.

I felt lost for words, but made an effort to send some hugs Rowena’s way: Continue reading “Learning About Compassion – #1000Speak”
Two weeks and a day after the terrorist attack in Paris, I joined my family on our yearly Thanksgiving walk, which started with paying a tribute to the people who lost their lives on Friday the 13th of November 2015.
Today, a month and a day later, I want to try to put into words what I saw and felt on that walk. I want to write about it this year, and not next year. Continue reading “A Touching Walk”
Friday the 13th of November, started as a good day. But before it came to it’s end, it ended worse than anyone wants to imagine a Friday the 13th. On Saturday, I expressed my shock, but I tried to quickly move away from the darkness. I did so by writing about all the things that happened on Friday, but also about other terrorist attacks that … Continue reading Paris a Loved City
