Day 54 – How it Began.

Remember that year where I ate 365…

Apple Season is upcoming!

Apple Season is upcoming!

I still can’t look at an apple and not think about that year, eating an apple a day. Minus that Apple 99 that I decided to keep and see how long it would last. It stayed in Belgium when I moved, in the care of my friend Lobke, who kept me informed of its evolution. If I’m recalling correctly, we gave it a garbage grave close to the end of that year. Apple 99 was a tough one.

Anyhow. Seeing this word today reminded me that it’s easier to stick to something for 365 days than you would imagine. You just have to do it, one day – or apple – at a time.

Day 53 – Unarguably Subjective.

I have a(nother) rule of thumb to sustain happiness is my life, and it’s “do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?” It keeps me from getting stuck in discussions and debates more often than you can imagine. Although I will try to voice my opinion, I’m not interested in forcing it upon anyone.

There is one thing where discussion is absolutely, undoubtedly unnecessary and it’s when it comes down to…

mmmm... chocolate!

mmmm… chocolate!

But I do think an open and forgiving mind is essential in this life.

Day 51 – Made in Belgium

My nieces are growing up way too fast. Today was a Back to School day for all three of them, and some are not even five. My little nephew has no such worries yet, but I can see from 4000 miles away that he’s already building himself a character.

I’m a persistent anti-missing-someone-person, but on days like this, when my whatsapp is buzzing with pictures painting their uber-cuteness, I do feel a little sad to be missing so much of their lives while they grow up into little people.

Anyway, not to brag or anything, but these four little humans in my life are so…

Day 50 – The Shift.

Dr. Wayne Dyer passed away yesterday.

If you’re not familiar with the world of spiritual teachers, the name might not ring a bell and the news might be meaningless. That’s ok. Although a bit of a surprise, it wasn’t all that tragic, because – a great mind and an enlightened soul – Wayne Dyer was at peace with this direction his life would eventually take.

Regardless of the above, I had a bad day. One of those days where you wonder why the world suddenly decided to conspire against you. I blamed it on the Sun shifting into Neptune – and I’m an Aries… I guess that merely proves how New Agey I really am. But it mostly proves that Wayne Dyer’s passing held a sign for me. Without the word of today crossing my path, and the connection I made to the Doctor, I wouldn’t have run into this quote tonight:

“ I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside.”

And then I would have gone to bed, feeling sad and angry at the world. So thank you, Wayne Dyer, for broadening and shifting my…

I was - not kidding - close to tears for not spotting a word today when I got home... and then I saw this one popping of a vintage poster on my wall.

yet again.

My soul has so much to learn still.

Day 49 – Nonsense.

Some thing don’t have to make sense – which is a hard thing to say for someone who likes things to make nothing but sense – preferably constantly.

But every now and then, even I enjoy a bit of…

what’s also a bit gibberish, is the summary of this week’s words – although they all made perfect sense to me…

Day 48 – New Words.

It’s only one word if you see it as such, and on the night where the full moon is entering Pisces – awakening our desire for closure on a deep soul level – it can hardly be a coincidence that this crossed my path…
