Sometimes, all you need is a change of perspective to see things clear again. ⚘ Same kitchen, different view for you today. You know, this little square world of ours is so pretty and creative and perfect. Real life mostly is not. Real life comes with those 90 percent, you don't see on Instagram. The dirty mom shirts, the greasy hair, the unshaved legs, the screaming kids not to mention the self doubt and pressure we (moms) put on ourselves every day. It may sound strange, but when I feel overwhelmed and stressed out, cleaning really makes me focus. So does cooking and eating but today I cleaned the entire kitchen. Inside out. And what can I say, I feel so much better. Yes, I know, it's weird. But hey, that's me. Please tell me, I'm not the only weirdo here! Oh and let me tell you, feeling overwhelmed is pretty much something anyone is going through. Yes, even the moms behind the perfect Instagram grids. So don't be too hard on yourself. You're doing great! What are your strategies to calm a busy mind? // Was sind eure Strategien, wenn euch alles zu viel wird? Ich denke mal, die wenigsten sind so verrückt und putzen so wie ich, wenn sie gestresst sind oder? 🙈

Sometimes we feel alone. Sometimes we feel like we can't face tomorrow. ⠀
It isn't true, you are heard, your voice matters and what you create tomorrow could change the world. ⠀
I've seen some horrible threads this week and from a community that I love very much. ⠀
To the content creators that inspire me, to those creating apps and tools that I avail of for free, to those whose images I could only wish to recreate, to those who take their time to write free fiction, blog content and amazing photo tutorials....you raise us all up. ⠀
YOU are the reason that this community grows for the better. ⠀
We have always grown together and raised each other up and long may that continue. ⠀
I know that those negative comments hurt. They cut deep when you give so much but remember those of us who are quieter, who love what you create. We are here for those tough days, just reach out and you'll find us. #make_more_magic ⠀
Some beautiful light today in the woods. What are you up to this weekend? We are selling things at a local flea market tomorrow. Which I have to admit will be a first. I am excited to ‘lighten our load’ but not sure I will be able to give away at least some of our books 📚 everything else will be fine... but books 🙈 Our link pack is up with a great book suggestion😉 and quotes to put you in a good mood✨
This week the reoccurring theme for me in reading and talking with friends and colleagues is all about faith + fear. They are opposites on the scale spectrum. In order to have full faith in the future, you cannot have fear. Just the smallest bit counteracts all the good you put out in the world. By being 💯% convicted that the good and the bad will come for a reason and fully letting go and trusting in the universe/your higher power, miracles happen that you could not have even fathomed. It may be a week, it may be a month, maybe a year. But when you let go of doubt and focus on positive energy and abundance, we can provide the best versions of ourselves and also be open to receiving the miracles we can now clearly see as just that. Miracles.
Hoping you all are ending the week on an inspired, peaceful note and going into the weekend with excitement and a new sense of rejuvenation. Xo
thank you for all of your lovely comments on yesterday’s photo. my son went to bed thoroughly exhausted (as did i) after a fun filled birthday. his cake is in my stories if you fancy a look
i’m tending towards a slower weekend and might even take my son to the star wars movie because i think he’d get a kick out of seeing it in 3D
do tell me if you’ve got something exciting happening this weekend, or if you’re taking it easy as well .

А ви читаєте текст під фото?Так/Ні?
І хоча я багато пишу (а ви думаєте зачєм я це все пишу-в мене тут справжній fake it till you make it), я сама дуже перебираю чиї пости читати. Купа блогерів безграмотні до неможливості (ні, я не про кому чи суржик, це для мене особливості стилю... я про "більш гарніше" і всілякі інші елементарні помилки), інші пишуть такий мрак, що я читаю пост і відчуваю як тупію...
А що читаєте ви?Саме читаєте, не дивитеся
Я завжди з задоволенням читаю @elena_mandziuk і її @dream_fit_mandziuk , @tarasenko.vasari і @arina_gonchar

The Highlands are white, such a contrast to this time last year when only a few spots held decent snow. So much white stuff that it was impossible to drive down Glen Etive yesterday. Today I swam for quite a while among the ice in Loch Morlich, my feet losing all feeling and the water causing my face and neck sharp pain by the end.
Whose idea was filming outdoor swimming in January?! 😭😁🏊
The image on a snowy day in the Peak District says it all, life can be difficult at times and obstacles can be thrown in our path but we have to keep pushing forward even if the road ahead looks difficult.
I, or should I say we, because my family and dog will be along for the ride too are heading off on an Instagram journey. Hopefully you will like the images and my musings while I try to decide on the ultimate direction we will be heading !
🎶 there are moments when you fall to the ground
but you are stronger than you feel you are now
you don't always have to speak so loud
just be as you are
life is not always a comfortable ride
everybody's got scars that they hide
and everybody plays the fool sometimes
just be as you are 🎶
My days here in Valencia are slowly coming to an end, on Monday I'll already be on my way home 😢 I am so sad about leaving; I will miss this beautiful city, the sunny weather, the sea, the people, basically everything!
Nevertheless, I'll try to enjoy the little time that's left and make the best of it 💕🌇
