As We Grow Up …

I was sitting on a park bench and some children were running around me playing a game that I did not understand and did not care for, because watching them all I could think of was the carelessness in which they acted.
They just ran about jumping on things, climbing things and picking things they shouldn’t pick and they did not care for anything, they did not care if they got injured, they did not care that they could get infections, they were just having fun and I was ruining my evening being worried for them.

It took me back to when I was a child and did not care and I remembered how I envied adults and wanted to be an adult, wanted to be independent and have control over my life. You know what the adults never told us, it’s not fun. It’s not fun growing up ain’t fun. Being independent, in control of your life is just too much. Life gets real.
You have to plan, you have to care, you have to know what’s happening around.Continue reading “As We Grow Up …”

Long Time No See


Oh hey there!

Do you know those moments, when you’re bored, but at the same time you’re too lazy to do something, so you just sit there, thinking about life and all that crazy stuff what comes along? I’m sure you do. Well anyway, when I accepted the fact, that I won’t be getting any more sleep last night, I had one of those flashes about life and out of the blue realised, that I still have this blog. It sounds ridiculously weird, but I honestly completely forgot about it, as I was always busy and so many things have happened!

After reading a few of my old posts, i suddenly just got the urge to say hello. I was full of ideas about what i could write and tell about. Now, unfortunately, I sit here clueless and tired typing along with a cup of tea by my side, not knowing how to start properly and hoping to get inspired in some way to write a proper post. Oh Heni what an amazing start you always have…. Do you get that feeling sometimes too?

I think the most important thing to mention is, that I’m pretty happy at the moment. Things have fallen into place and despite me trying to push it away earlier this year, I have begun to accept that I do deserve this. I deserve to be happy, I deserve to enjoy the moment and I deserve to live!

So I guess you can tell, that there has been a lot going on in my mad little world.

Basically what i wanted to say with this blog is, that Im back.. kinda..I’m not making any promises, but I miss writing – I MISS WRITING … I have always loved typing all my feelings out. And I’ll definitely try harder this time. :p

Cheers folks and thanks for stopping by!

Thankful for the {small + ordinary} moments where life is lived

Nos jours sont bien rempli avec les taches quotidiennes. J’ai commencé à travailler à plein temps et ça nous prend du temps à s’habituer, presque s’habituer, au nouveau rythme assez chaotique de cette nouvelle organisation.

Je ne vois pas les jours passé et je n’ai pas le temps de faire grand chose, et encore moins de passer du temps avec ma famille. Le fait de prendre les photos et écrire sur le blog me manque beaucoup. Mais pour le moment chaque minute libre est passé avec ma famille, et j’essaie.

Voici quelques photos de notre weekend à Dieng Wonosobo avec ma famille, juste quelques images que je voulais partager. À très bientôt lecteur !

Sometimes … It’s Nice to Unplug

Pic from here

Dear God, I just don’t understand. You have given me 24 hours in a day. How is it that my life doesn’t seem to fit into this day. I know that You don’t make mistakes and You have given me 24 hours for a reason. Where am I going wrong?

Sometimes life can get so busy. Overcrowded and our round the clock schedules can prove to become so demanding and taxing on our lives. At times it may not even be that we are physically doing many things; it is more that our minds are so rammed with multiple things competing to be the centre of attention. My attention is drawn to the many thing that are going on around me and the things that I need to do. It can be very frustating thing!

At times, I have woken up and immediately begun to think about the million and one things that need to be done in that day and do you know what the instant feeling and reaction is? WORRY, DISTRACTION AND A SENSE OF URGENCY TO BEAT THE CLOCK. Thinking alone can sometimes make me tired and when I get to this stage I realise that it is really time to pull away from all of the to do lists and plug back into the things that boost my mood. I am not even a mother yet and the pace of my life at times is shocking. I wonder what I would do once I have a children! LOLContinue reading “Sometimes … It’s Nice to Unplug”
