When Life Gives you Yellow Lemons

“In the moment of fear, you can choose. You can always choose.

With calmness and stability you can think clearly. With clarity you can predict the storm, and its strength. By standing still, you can observe your own strength.” said the old Bosnian woman.

After the war had ended, I worked in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina on helping the growing numbers of homeless and sick animals.

Not much worked in the area, the elevator, and my flat was on eight floor.  My stove had only one burner working, I had to wash my clothes in the bathtub. However, the heat in my apartment was on full speed. It was tropical-hot. In every home I visited, it was tremendously hot. No one wanted to freeze anymore. 

Nearly every survivor said the same thing. “The worst feeling was freezing!”

One day I got sick with a high fever. The Bosnian woman, who had become like a mother to me, came up to my apartment on sniper alley. With her she had two beautiful bright yellow lemons, and some leaves with white flowers on. In my small kitchen she started to brew tea with her expensive lemons and handpicked flowers. She smelled the flowers and I saw her smile. In her face I could see the love and thankfulness towards the herbs. She handed me the cup telling me to drink slowly, to feel the strength returning back inside of me. 

“When chaos is in the world you have to relearn how to live with Nature.”

My Children

Means the world to me. Actually, spending time with them means everything to me.

We went to St Moritz to see World Cup in Horse Polo on a frozen lake.

Amazing day. Sunlight, plenty of snow and great play.

Thanks to amazing photographer Kathrin Gralla, we now have a permanent memory.

That’s Amore!

You are the Boss of your Feelings

Jealousy is one of the most damaging feelings we can allow us to happen.

As it actually hurts yourself, the same way it hurts the target.

Early on in my children’s life, I started to talk to them about jealousy. About “good” jealousy and “bad” jealousy. Either it could inspire them, or destroy them.

One advice I kept telling them — and it’s a good reminder to all of us– is to practice the (Buddhist) question that asks, “Can you be happy for their (the person you are jealous of) success?

When you are noticing your jealous feelings. Stop! Take a breath, and simply ask this question. Chose kindness.

That’s Amore!

Bella Napoli Chaos

0

Flying into Bell a Napoli wasn’t easy to start with today. Snow chaos big time!

Someone at the airport told me they hadn’t had snow in Napoli since 1950 something.

We got delayed in Stuttgart for several hours. It was kind of ok since I could sit and work. Looking at all the people thinking, ” you got all your story to tell!”

Finally late afternoon I landed and the sun was shining and all snow gone! Like it never happened. Strange!

My view from my balcony, stunning! I forgot Napoli how much I love you!

That’s Amore!

Bring Italy to you!

To be a mother and working a lot from home, having many animals around you, There is nothing more fantastic then to stay at a hotel and have other s take care of you.Look at the breakfast! The best room ever for my son. The manager at V8 was (is) amazing arranging a fantastic room for him. This hotel got everything for everyone!

Amazing car museum, and totally awesome Italian restaurant. The whole crew “Tony’s” were top five stars. Food tasting like homemade from the best Italian Mom!

You hardworking moms, should do this to yourself ones in a while. With or without your children, it’s totally up to you. You do your glamour thing for your heart and mind, however, it’s nice to share it with someone else too.

I love to eat together with my son (Olivia was at a school dance) He enjoys food and to have conversations together with him, is fun and inspiring.

Afterwards, we picked Olivia up outside the school dance, and went back to the hotel. We then visit the bar connected to the restaurant drinking cola and eating divine dolce.

This is a five star bar, no drunks or smokers– there is a cigar room– if you wanted to enjoy a tasteful cigar.

Amazing Glamour Time for Mom and her Kids!

That’s Amore!
