On the Run Towards New Goals

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!

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!

Two Souls

Two souls. Two eyes. Two minds.

He is always there for you, holding you up.

Listening without sighing or rolling his eyes at you. Your best friend.

Just there without any words, but comforting more than from those with words.

That’s Amore!

Helping Hands and Hearts

In a couple of hours am I meeting a woman I admire in many ways.

She is the founder of the nonprofit organization Kainos. A ministry working against human trafficking and sexual exploitation in prostitution.

Their vision is to see freedom for victims of human trafficking and sexuality exploitation with an opportunity for a new life.

Helping Hand

Last Saturday me and my children joined a manifestation in Stuttgart, Germany.

The amazing thing was that it was a manifestation worldwide.

Against human slavery, prostitution and human trafficking. I think it’s important for everyone to join and learn more about the silent tragedy out there. But also the helping hands that are there. And for a victim, it’s very important to be seen, heard and taken seriously.

And especially today when we are stressed and tired, many are unhappy. We disappear daily into Instagram or FB world, maybe dreaming about someone else’s life.

It doesn’t have to big changes right away. However showing support is a big step in the right direction.

And give someone a compliment, send a heart spontaneous to someone and tell the person you thought about them.

If someone shared an emotional help to you, maybe you cannot help, however, you can show the person that you are there!

Don’t be a stranger!

Don’t say later!

We never know what road we have to walk, or when.

Be a Friend

Be Kind

That’s Amore!
