Turning a new page.

So I've decided to turn a new page and start over today.
New week, new mindset, new goals, healthy eating, more water, less thinking, more doing, less dreaming, more writing, less wasting time, more getting things done.  
Including more exercise.
I'm taking the next three weeks for myself and I'm going to make a few visible changes.
{If you want change, choose it.}

I'm choosing it...

I wanted to share a few links with you on this calm Sunday night.  Herewith some blogs that I read on a regular basis.  
I love them, maybe you will too?  
It is only the tip of the iceberg, though.   
There are lots, lots more.

Happy reading!

Winter on the coast.

I'm back and a lot has happened.  I'm now a lecturer and I teach people things.  It's unbelievably rewarding to go to 'work' and to know the possibility is there that you're making a difference in someone's life.  
It has also been hotWay too hot... Almost unbearably hot.  And I've decided that I want to live on the coast in an area where it's mostly autumn/winter.   
{I want cool, misty, wet days somewhere where it's green and quiet and beautiful.}
Somewhere where it looks something like this:

 A girl can dream, right?

A few truths for a Tuesday

... but not all the time.  :)

(Now where did I put those matches...?)

Sleep is absolutely great for you.  
(...although I haven't been sleeping too well lately...)

I sometimes wish I had red hair.

If the permanency of tattoos didn't freak me out as much, I would probably get one similar to this.

I will be OK with a permanent holiday.  
No, honestly.

I wish I could take better pictures.

  It really is all in the mind.

2011, so far.

There are a few reasons why I don't get around to blogging this year.  The main reason is because I think I have too much to say, and I'm not sure how to say it.  And I want it to come out right.  So I wait.  I wait, wait, wait, on myself, on the right feeling, the right words, the right time... And all this waiting gets me nowhere :)  Today I leave you with this gorgeous picture and a few reasons to feel good.  Because if all else fails, you need to remain thankful.  And sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words.

A few of my reasons to feel good:
  1. My new Amazon Kindle. It's got a red, leather cover and I'm going to spend hours holding it and drinking in every word it has to offer.
  2. My pregnant cat. I can feel her babies move in her tummy and it makes me uncontrollably happy and excited.
  3. My new business cards. I have never had a business card.. it feels kind of good.
  4. My husband. He's great. He's calm, he's real, he's honest and true and we love each other unconditionally. 
  5. The fact that I survived last year.  I'm still here, I'm alive, I'm blessed, I have so much to get excited about and I should grab everything in my life with both hands and hold on for dear life.

Hello, 2011

This is what I'm planning for 2011:

Think less and do more.
Don't over-analyse.
Spell better, run more, worry less.
Be at peace with who and what I am.
Believe in myself.
Remain thankful and pray constantly.

Let's see if I can manage that!

{I'm going to try really hard!} 

For some reason it's been harder than previous years to get all excited about what lies ahead, but I'm in the process of changing my attitude.  Just so you know.  :)

A strange, hot summer - so far.

I found this song yesterday and it did something for my soul.  I thought I'd share it.

It's called This Moment by Nic Chagall Feat Jonathan Mendelsohn

And I wanted to say that it's been one of {those} weeks.

(And all of that takes time and a lot of energy, and I have no idea why I do it. Someone once told me it's called intellectualisation- maybe he was right, maybe not ;)

But, today is Friday.
And I have a weekend to myself.

So, let's see what happens...

I love Paris.

Oh, if I could be here
for a few days,
with him
I would be really happy.
