Travelling to London


Work always seems to get in the way of life. Demanding work factors have resulted in absolutely less
"me" time the last three weeks. So I thought I should do something about it.
I've decided to take a little break from blogging. I will be in London  for a few days.

Hope you all have a great week and are in good spirits. I will miss you guys! 
Missing you already...

Relationship Killer

So there's no better way to kill a relationship than to stop expressing your feelings.                                      

I don't like to express my feelings, but the more I share my emotions the better the relationships become. I always feel better when I express or release of the bad feeling. It is hard at first but really worth it.
This is the most important part to prevent a build-up of feelings and festering and reduces the chances of being misunderstood.

I  believe that it is quite essential to express feelings without attacking the self-esteem of the other person and in a manner that is productive and respectful.
Non-blameful and non-judgmental manner; a kinda like:

"When you did that thing I felt that way." That simple. But I have to admit that sometimes I find it really hard! And I fail miserably.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear. xx

Splendid Cheese


Cheese makes too much of itself. I love cheese, almost any kind of cheese.

 
'You Banbury cheese!' The Merry Wives of Windsor by William Shakespeare (1564-1614).

Just a little bit of this fabulous Parmesan cheese grated over a green salad, takes it to a whole new level. And there's nothing like a grilled cheese sandwich and a salad for comfort food.
Cheese sandwich dipped in sour cream, mmmm...my gosh, tastes so good. xx

Defining Happiness

To live happily is an inward power of the soul, mind.
Aristotle.

Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold, the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.
Democritus.

I strongly believe that happiness is the warm glow of a heart at peace with itself. 
To live happily is an inward power of the soul and mind. Happiness is a choice. So, I choose to feel happy.
 
Happiness must not be asked to anyone, because it is a personal experience.Not trying to find answers of what happiness is; just try to answer your own question.
Martha Washington once said, "The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances. We carry the seeds of one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go."
Take care of yourself. Good health is everyone's major source of wealth. Without it, happiness is almost impossible. And remember, the seeds of happiness only and always lie within.
                                
What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear. Please, speak your mind, your thoughts really matter! xx

Things I Love

                                     Medieval buildings reflected in the canal. Gant, Belgium.                                     
                                     "Haunted" houses. Bruges, Belgium.
 
                                     Peaceful swans love to glide...
                                     Today is no special day; I have no news to tell you, or any
                                      problems to discuss with you. But I'd like to share these thoughts
                                      with you dear readers.
                                     There are four things I'm most passionate about that I could not
                                      live without.
                                      I absolutely love them like a fat kid loves cake!
                                      I adore:
                                      My favourite music.
                                      Photography.
                                      Watching movies.
                                      Long-distance walks.

                                      What are the four things you love?

                                     Now if you feel like your ears have been lacking wonderful music
                                     and lyrics,check this clip out; "She's always a woman to me"
                                     by Billy Joel.
                                     Perfect music and symbolic lyrics.
                                     (Sorry male blog friends, no offence intended!).

                                     I so love this song. I've got it stuck in my head actually. xx

Summer Fling

                                      Oh, summer days beside the joyous sea.
                                     Caribbean Blue.                               
                                     Here comes summer! These pictures make me long for summer.
                                     Don't you just love it? I know I do.   
                                     For me, summer brings more than just a good tan.
                                     I often take time over the summer to read lists of books I may not
                                     ordinarily seek out.

                                     Don't you love to sit in the shade and read away in the summer?
                                     The summer heat seems to melt away inhibitions.
                                     We allow ourselves to wander and enjoy simple things like
                                     summer movies, nature walks, hanging out with friends, going to
                                     the beach, having picnics.
                                     Beautiful beaches, soft, white sandy landscapes kissed by
                                     turquoise crystal waters...
                                     The beach has so been on my brain lately; as soon as the weather
                                     balances I'm off for a visit. xx
