Life is too short to… (fill in the gap!)

Standard

Today I woke up with sad news. I wont give details, but it really made me think about the meaning of life… We cannot do anything now to go back to the past to say or do things differently, however we are always on time to do something about it NOW!

“Life is to short to…

… leave things unsaid”

… not do what you want”

… not say “I love you” with all your heart”

… not fall in love every chance you might have”

… not be happy”

… … … … … …

How would you finish the sentence?? Here you have some more ideas… ;-)

Gone to the beach…? – A dream come true :)

I can’t express how happy I am today! :) For the first time since I can remember I have been swimming in the sea and a lake the last two weekends! I was always the one saying “thanks for the invite, but no… :(“. Although I would like to join to whatever outside summer activity I would always come up with a “good excuse”: “I’m allergic to the sun”, “it is too hot for me”,” I don’t feel like it”…  I’ve missed all kind of cool events in the summer thanks to my “fears” and my allergy…

What has changed then? Well, my diet and my thoughts to begin with… :)

If you think you can, or you think you cannot, you are right!

-Henry Ford-

Since last summer I’ve quit dairy and my intake of veggies (specially the green ones) has almost doubled, which has nearly finished with my skin problems (I have suffered from eczema and other issues during my whole life). This week, for the first time in YEARS I went outside when it was warm and the sun was shining in my shorts and t-shirt (no long trousers or long sleeve shirts)! You might not know me, but no-one had ever seen me like that in my adult life! hahaha

The best of all?I had lots of fun saying “yes” to going to the beach or the lake, playing sports under the sun in my bikini, swimming, playing at the water sledge AND getting a tanned! Of course I used a lot of sun cream, but I didn’t get burned, eczema or whatsoever! :)

Moral: eat tons of veggies instead of processed food and believe that anything is possible. Getting tanned was my Christmas wish for this year… :) Thank you Universe for guiding me towards it, It is one of the best presents EVER! :)

Which dream would you like to make come true?

Big hug and have a great summer! (I will… :P)

P.S. Visualisation has also helped me A LOT, hehehe ;-)

Strawberries? Yes! Where? In Antwerp! Nice…

Strawberries? Yes! Where? In Antwerp! Nice…

Sin títuloNot that long ago I had to change trains in Antwerp, where surprisingly for me I found a strawberry stall! :)  “Lekker en Gezond” (Delicious & Healthy) was the name of the stand where other fruits could also be found :)

It’s great to see that healthy stuff is conquering public places such as Antwerp’s Central Station! :)

I have discoverer quite some juice places in Belgium I will be posting regularly in this blog, so if you want to discover them, stay tuned! :)

Do you know any other places where you can find fresh food around you?

Big hug and much love,

What makes you feel good? Upgrade your day with simple acts!

Standard

feel_good_today_quoteI know, I have been a bit absent the las couple of weeks, sorry for that! I’ve been tracing a new plan and getting some insight in my life! I’ve understood how important it is to feel good with whatever I do and the people around me… I realised that I can choose how I want to feel about anything after having gone through it… I also realised that if I do more of what makes me feel good, I am happier and have more energy to make my dreams come true. It doesn’t have to be something big, something the smallest things in life give us the most! :)

These are a few things that make ME feel good!

  • Smile with no reason, smile to someone I do not know and see they smile back!
  • Listening to my favorite song
  • Send a thank you and/or I love you message, especially if you get positive feedback ;-)
  • Buy me some flowers and put them in my room
  • Refresh my house opening the windows (fresh air is always great!)
  • Go for a walk alongside the water
  • Play with animals or kids
  • Accomplish my to do list
  • Do some sports and have a warm shower afterwards
  • Eat with my friends and/or family
  • Laugh out loud, make a joke among friends
  • Speak in my mother tongue
  • Stop for a while, breath, meditate…
  • Surprise my best friend  with an unexpected phone call
  • Give a hug to my roomies

What about you? What do you do to feel good? What is your next step for changing your mood and feel good today?

Big hug,
