On the Run Towards New Goals

0

Since 1999 have I been in the Animal Rescue Life of Living.

Oregon I rescued thanks to Tracey Kleber big support. We got four other Rescue Horses that we brought back to feeling alive again. Feeling appreciated and loved.

At the same time they are giving me back so much more. They also not only appreciates me, loves me, making me feel alive again, they teach me to be in the moment.

So, my question is, who rescued who?

Does it matter?

That’s Amore!

❤️ “Are you a psychologist?” the man asked me curiously.

“If My answer is yes, will that increase my reliability!”

Psychologist, I have been reading a lot.

Common sense, I have been living a lot.

Balance is practice!

Does it matter where the wisdom comes from?

Listen to our young ones.

They know!

That’s Amore!

Challenge Climbing

for Christmas, Max had got a “climbing experience” gift card from friend Simone.

It was the best present ever.Like many children, Max loves to move around, and it was a thrilling exiting challenge. Even many grownups were practicing for upcoming mountain climbings early this spring.

Me mom, followed them — my son and Simone– around however, of course touching ground the whole time. Me, got tired after a while. (A Tired neck, after all time looking up at the climbers)

A cosy little cafe area was near by, with a fireplace, good coffee and sandwiches, and happily, I brought my book with me.

I have to say that Simone got the biggest patiences together with children. And, I loved the idea of giving this kind of Christmas present — and she even tagged along.

Great for kids to move! Exiting! Family Fun!

That’s Amore!

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!

Hand Yoga Flowers and Kisses

Support from others can make us heal faster. Well, that is not any new news. I cannot help but remembering growing up with a different kind of compassion.

When Someone was hospitalized we were many visiting and brought flowers and cards that were filling the patients table.

My mom told me not to bring them home, that was bad luck. So all the flowers were brought to the nurses coffee room.

A nurse told me that today many are allergic to flowers, that is why many hospitals are forbidding flowers. How sad, flowers make you feel good. (If you are not allergic) We patients attend to smile when we see the gorgeous flowers, and we talk about the flowers, instead of sickness. (That comes later in our conversation)

My wonderful children brought in flowers and me and my roommate kept talking about them every day. It was a joy for my (our) healing, looking at the flowers during the day.

Does your hospital allow your patients flowers?

Rehabilitation started, and I was filled with joy– even if it hurts, but it’s positive pain.

Amazing staff at the physio therapy Intermedtris das TherapieZentrum. Gentle and loving, my hand thrives.

However, another therapist that makes wonders, and with the best healing kisses, is from Oregon.

Our 28 year old rescue horse that is now rescuing me. Best Nurse Ever!

That’s Amore!
