#JustAThought… When the Lights Return


About ten days ago, we turned on the Christmas lights around the house. Every year, this is a moment I wait for impatiently. At this time of year, these lights do something to me – and I mean Christmas lights in general. They make me smile, bring back the child in me, take me back to cozy and soothing December evenings when the kids were little, or remind me of lovely times at Christmas markets.
In summary: They warm my heart and support it to open up.

#JustAThought… It’s a Choice, Not a Destiny

It is still a phenomenon to me, how some people want something so badly, but don’t do anything but dream to reach their dreams. Don’t get me wrong, dreaming is important to let an inner picture become a vision of what we want to achieve or become. Keeping that dream alive is important because it feeds the belief in that vision to be realized. But then, when the universe actually lays out opportunities and situations before them that lead to the happiness they so long for, they sit back. What are they waiting for? When conditions change in favor of what is desired, it is for the purpose of seizing the opportunities that open up. The work, however, is not taken from us. Only the conditions are created, so that we can realize our visions thereby better. We are not in the land of milk and honey, where fried chicken fly into our mouths. And even if, we are, we still have to chew and swallow ourselves.

#JustAThought – Filter


On Instagram, I saw posts about #NoFilterDay. That got me thinking. Does this mean that a lot of people post pictures of themselves with filters, basically? I am not talking about the funny filters with dog tongues, cat ears, and distorted faces but filters that make them look “better” (whatever that means). I never paid attention to this until now because I don’t use such things myself. Is it because these people want to impress others by looking a certain way that they think will get them more followers, or don’t they simply like the way they look? When I think about our “selfie” society, where people focus on themselves and the importance of what they do and eat all day, this would make sense.

#JustAThought … When They Leave The Nest

Many of you have already experienced it when a child moves out. I also experienced it six years ago for the first time. Now the next move-out is coming up these days. I think I can speak for most of you when I say that we are proud when our children take on the challenge and responsibility for their own lives and take the step into their own independent future.

#JustAThought – What’s the big deal?

So far, it has been a wet and cold summer. Unlike the last two to three years, we have not had a heatwave or drought during the summer months. We have had a few thunderstorms that have scared even me, a self-confessed thunderstorm lover. But we have been really lucky so far, while areas just a half-hour away from us have had no luck. But as is probably the nature of us humans, so many complain and complain. I understand that it’s not easy when the kids are on summer vacation, and you can’t make plans for trips in the area or further afield.

#JustAThought … Memories


Why is it that beautiful memories can make us melancholic or even sad? Looking at photos of past events takes us back to that time and makes us feel what we felt at the time. The feelings may have been beautiful, but in retrospect they can turn into the opposite although nothing has changed in the past. It is the present that makes all this appear in a different light.

Sometimes we are focused on a particular way to reach a goal. Or we think we know the perfect solution to a problem. Maybe we even believe that there is no solution to a problem. However, the constructs of the mind may take us on an odyssey because we become blind to the many possibilities meant for us.

#JustAThought… The Moment of Enlightenment

I still believe that the core purpose of the journey through this lifetime lies in rediscovering our own light, in the way we deal with what happens leads us closer to recognizing who we really are. Joy, pain, drama, success, love, loss, stress, relief shows the results by the consequences of our actions and reactions. Every little incident tells us something about ourselves and the more we experience the more we might see that it is up to us how we experience what happens. Nothing new! BUT…

Just A Thought… Can it be?


What if World War III was not caused by one country attacking another but by something attacking all countries?

What if World War III would not divide but unite?

What if this was World War III? Despite all the tragedies and economic disasters, wouldn’t we be lucky?

These thoughts were just running through my head.

#JustAThought … What Means Success?

In our society success seems to be defined by sales numbers, collecting awards and degrees, follower numbers, likes, possession… Yes, we all need to make a living and of course, want to enjoy life since money still rules this world. But even aside from the thoughts about our financial security still, the need for having more and more and more doesn’t stop. As long as society plays that game, those plans will work out.

Just a Thought… Stop bowing, start living

“We have always done it that way. You cannot make money with what you would like to do. You don’t have the money to do it. You have to stick with our kind. It is the tradition. It is the culture. The family won’t let me.”

Just A Thought – What Means Freedom?

First thoughts may be doing what I want, no obligations, no duties, only taking care of myself and my needs. Perhaps this comes to mind first because barely someone can do this. But let’s pretend to go for this. It would lead to isolation pretty soon because it would mean to lock everyone out. In thinking we’d free ourselves we’d send ourselves in a home-made prison.

Just A Thought… Overcoming Fear – Path or Goal?

Carol Anne asked an interesting question about a week ago: If you could be totally amazing at just one thing, what one thing would you want to be amazing at? My first thought was I want to encounter obstacles, challenges, and life’s tests without pushing me through fear first. Then it made me think.

nature-earth-quotes-02.jpgThe lung of our planet is burning for weeks. There has never been a bigger catastrophe on this planet which affects not only the region but the whole world. I think we cannot even imagine what it means when thousands of fires are burning and thousands of new fires are developing each day. How can this be gotten under control? Does it really mean that the fires only cease when there is nothing more to be burned unless it rains heavily for days or even weeks? Read more ›

Bildergebnis für inner sun

Shine your light. Let it illuminate your path through life and share it with everybody who crosses your way. A smile is less arduous and needs fewer muscles than a grumpy face. It heals you and plants healing seeds in others. There was something planted inside your heart before you opened your eyes for the first time. You are meant to make it blossom while we walk on this earth and the fruits are supposed to be shared. Fruits, only the individual you can produce. Your inner sun makes the fruit grow and your deeds are the fertilizer.
Shine your light and share it with everyone! Read more ›

Bildergebnis für AI

I am in charge of the Twitter account of my company. We are also following AI (Artificial Intelligence) channels. Like many of you, I observed the whole internet progress with raised eyebrows. But meanwhile, I am seriously concerned about the development of AI. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to blame it in general. There are great things invented to support the health system and surgeries. Dangerous work can be done by robots. What I think is fantastic are robots or other inventions which help disabled people to have much fewer restrictions. Drones can be sent to rescue people in difficult areas, and much more.

Life can fall out of balance which can be challenging. This happens when something changes. Things need to fall out of balance in order to rebalance in a different way. Like magnetic blocks. You can throw them apart but they will be pulled together again when even in a different formation. Read more ›

Bildergebnis für quote

When I think of what I want to achieve in my life and to whom I want to grow, then I ask myself what shall be written in my bio. There is only one thing actually. I want to look back and can say, I have become a happy person. What more could I reach? What could I ever miss as long as I am happy? When I am happy, I feel content and love will never leave me. Whatever comes and goes in my life can make me sad but never unhappy. When I can say, I am happy, then I have become all that I can become.

Have a happy weekend!

Bildergebnis für edison quote about failure

The most common reason why we don’t try something new is that we are afraid of failing. And why? Because we don’t want to appear weak, incompetent, dumb, clumsy, … Successful people have not become successful because they had no fear but because they tried it anyway. They may have stumbled and fallen in the beginning but they did not accept it as a failure but as a journey to find out how to become who they wanted to be! Read more ›

We all carry our backpacks. On some days they weigh heavier than on other days.
But no matter how heavy my backpack may appear the lady at the cash desk, the customer on the phone, the driver in front of me… have nothing to do with it.

Who knows, perhaps their backpacks are much heavier!

Take care of each other!

Kind, Kinder, Glücklich, Niedlich, Mädchen, Lächeln

It is Friday. A work week lies behind most of us. Hopefully, the week was successful. Perhaps you were confirmed that you are right on track. Perhaps you noticed that you were doing things naturally, faster, and totally self-confident which caused you stomach pain only weeks ago. Realizing that, only increases your self-esteem and joy which again supports the further development.  Read more ›

Who you are is light.
That light lingers in your deepest, truest core.
The amazing thing about light is,
it illuminates everything in its surrounding.

So, when you shine your light
you fill yourself and then gift everyone around you.

Be a beacon for your own sake and the sake of everyone.

Happy Weekend!

It is a paradox that people who left the biggest mess in their lives often are those who feel the deepest need to tell others how to live.
