Always in my Bag

0

We are really trying to reduce the use of plastic! I have to be honest I was shocked when I realized how much plastic we actually were using!!

Even if I feel good that we are recycling  doesn’t help with the bigger problem out there.

Me and my children try to catch each other in every plastic moment. And Me, Mom, are trying to always bring our reusable cups/straws in my bag.

That’s Amore!

Horses has the Ability to Change our Lives 

0

The amazing way of being a freelance writer is that you get to pick the people you want to met, and the people you want the world to met. I felt like a super mini Oprah, but the feeling of amazing was there.

Mia works  with her horse Brumman. Together they hold courses in mindfulness. However, it is Brumman who holds in all the tools, and finds out very fast in every person what they need to work with.

Amazingly, you dont need any horse experience. Just an open mind and heart.

Even if Brumman had had a difficult past, she moved on without bitterness or aggression. When Mia let her heal in her own tempo and with multivitamins and love, Brumman woke up and started to heal humans.

 

They do not live in the past. Nor do they selfpitty. Its full force in evey moment, the moment of now!

You can read the whole faccinating artcile in the Swedish Magazine Nara.

Thank you so much Mia Holm for your amazing work together with the horses. And Tuss Bennegard for your amazing pictures and donation to AWL

That’s Amore!

 

Italy in my Heart

Italia nel mia cuore

 

We went to Toscana for a couple of days before heading down to South Italy. This time we stayed at hotel Bijou, and it is a wonderful hotel in a perfect size. Breakfast was fantastic.

we rented bikes and that is also a must when staying there. We bikeride down to the beach, to the ice cream store, around and discovered fantastic lunch places.

and of course, hotel Bijou had Mr Donatello. He is amazing and loving and treats you like your best friend. Every hotel should have a “Donatello”

Beautiful view from our balcony. We are defenetly going back. Quiet, charming, great service, hearts, breakfast amazing ecpesially for me that love cheece (they had 6 different “flavor”) Amazing staff. My children loved everything.

Just what you want when you are on holiday!

That’s Amore!

Horses put a Spell on you?

0

Horses truly got the ability to heal people. They are fantastic teachers to build up your inner strength. Even quicker than an psychologist 😉

After my first lesson with a great German instructor,  I felt right away terrific. I admit, it was scary wonderful. My legs were like spagetthi when I jumped off. And the horse speed felt like 100km/h even when he only trotted. But I did it!

I even got to borrow a horse dictionary; English/German/French

Trying to understand what it is I am supposed to do on top of the horse! Umsitzen, ganze bahne….!

After my first riding lesson  I went home to my son (9y) Some time later he lookes at me suspicious and said, “Mom, did the horse make a spell on you? You are so happy!”

Glad he noticed. He didn’t know that I had started riding instead of eating pills.

And, I feel great continuing riding, I am doing something for Me! I feel alive.

That’s Amore!

Prayers

prayers

I have been praying since I was a little girl.

I believe we all pray. Some more often than others.

Growing up in a “non-religion” home I taught myself how to speak to God, or Universe (or the same) When I was in third grade, I went with my school friend and her family to a Katholic Church in Sweden. It was so beautiful. I wanted to become a Katholic.

When my family went skiing in Austria, I had as an tradition that every last ski day I went to the Katholic church instead of skiing (as much as possible the last day.) My father went “crazy” and thought that was nonsens, and waste of money. But, for me, it was magic, lightning a candle, sitting in the wooden bench and look at all the fantastic Angels, Jesus and gold ornaments. I prayed.

Still today, when visiting different European cities (towns) the church is a must for me, and my young children enjoys it too.

I love feeling connected via prayers and meditations.

I read somewhere and it goes something like this;

When you pray you speak to God,

and when you meditate, God speaks to you.

That’s Amore!

Summer Hits some Strays Harder

summer-picture-beach

Summer is here and it is a happy time for many, however, for some its tougher than ever.

Mister, on the picture was a former abandon dog that AWL rescued, and one of the volunteers found a great home for him (as you can tell by the picture).

Nevertheless, many strays will never have the same luck. Shelters are being full, and many shelters are nasty. We are helping a shelter that we know of since 2009.

 

Right now are we collecting food donations, or even better would be if you made a money donation. (se below) AWL will buy all the food and deliver it themself to the shelter.
Summer is a difficult period of time since many owners goes away on vacation. Money is being less donated and help from companies.
Our budget is going low. Many “pets” are also being dumped on the street since the dog hotels are super expencive during July–August (vacation month) Some people leaves their dog in the garden without food, and the water bowl are soon drying out.
On these kind of places, there are not any laws that will protect the animals.
Please help us help them all.
