We’ve moved house, and I’m doing new stuff. Like coming up with a new class, working title: love & freedom every day.
What else would you hope for, my appreciated readers? Drop me a line.
Love & best wishes!

It’s been a while

my lovely readers. Here I am, back with song lyrics that currently inspire me.  (- performed by Tom Jones and Van Morrison when I first fell in love with them.) (the lyrics, not the performers that is 🙂 )

sometimes we know, sometimes we don’t.

sometimes we give, sometimes we won’t.

sometimes we’re strong, sometimes we’re wrong.

sometimes we cry.

sometimes we don’t even want to try.

sometimes we live, sometimes we die.

I love the matter-of-factness of it, just stating it as it is, no denying, no running away.

Looking at things just the way they are is a great skill.

The artwork’s title (featured in the blog caption) is “we are happy stars”, generously supplied by my daughter Nadia.

So all you happy stars out there, keep on shining.

talk soon & hope to see you

Anything undone – is just on a different timeline!

“I never have the sense that anything I haven’t done is undone. I see the things that don’t get done as things that need a different timing; I and the world are better off without them, for now. (…) Nothing comes ahead of its time, and nothing has ever happened that didn’t need to happen.”

Byron Katie

I find that quote amazingly inspiring and reassuring and wanted to share it with you!

All the best,
love
Birgit

spring clearing

Image

I adore this time of year, when the cold recedes, the sun comes out and the first flowers and blooms start to appear. Spring is a wonderful time to let go of the old, inviting the new into your life – in whichever format you want it to come: new friends, changes in the job, a move… So here’s my list of what has left the house so far: 1 bike, 1 pram, 1 small television, 1 hairdryer (the ‘spare’ one! :), one massage thingie, 11 books, some clothes, 1 large storage box + lid (always a very good sign, when storage items go!),  1 painting, several picture frames, 2 lamps – all these items are now with happy new owners, and I’ve regained space, clarity and this wonderful lightness of being that comes with every clearout…

what are you going to let go of?

Happy Clearing!

Love

Birgit

a creed to live by

perfect to do list!

don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others
it is because we are different that each of us is special.
don’t set your goals by what other people deem important
only you know what is best for you.
dont’ take for granted the things closest to your heart,
cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.
don’t let your life slip through your fingers
by living in the past or for the future.
Living your life one day at a time,
you life all the days of your life.
don’t give up when you still have something to give
nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect,
it is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.
don’t be afraid to encounter risks
it is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
don’t shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find,
the quickest way to receive love is to give love –
the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly,
the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
don’t run through life so fast that you forget
not only where you’ve been, but also where you’re going.
live is a journey to be savoured every step of the way.

Happy Clearing!

Rumi poem for you

love and let go

This being human is a guest house

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture,

still treat each guest honourably.

They may be clearing out

for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the dour laughing,

and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.

 

Happy New Year everyone!

Christmas is upon us

IMG_2506

and most of us are dreading the “stuff-ocation” that comes with it.
So how about less consuming and more real giving instead – of those precious things that are not things: time, attention, appreciation, a dinner/theatre/cinema invitation, a babysitting/dog walking voucher, a surprise party, a midnight walk… – what are your ideas?

May you have a truly MERRY CHRISTMAS,

Love

Birgit
