Dear All

As it is I am getting tired reporting about the self-destructive tendencies in Europe and in my home country Austria.

It becomes overwhelming and staying positive and trusting is a daily challenge.

Therefore I consciously look on the bright side of life.

I look at the beauty of nature. 

I walk outside and stand in silence - breathing in the scents of the fields, hay and the forest after a summer rain.

The lime trees (Linden trees) in front of our house are in full blossom and millions of bees (!!!) are eagerly collecting pollen and honey.

I am healthy and I can choose my lifestyle.

I am teaching wonderful people using skills that I have not earned but was given.

My children and family are healthy, I have more than enough to be grateful for.

What I realised is:

It is not happy people who are thankful.  It is thankful people who are happy.

This hit me again.

Whatever happens around us - look at what you have got.  See opportunities to grow in your challenges.

Let's join together in a session on gratitude - I am soo looking forward to that.

The photo was taken yesterday on my morning walk!

Lots of love to all of you
