I don’t know why I named this post this way, it just came up in my head….
Do you have that too, that sometimes you just type away,
blissfully unaware where the words might lead to?
I have this a lot. In fact, I write 99% just the way I talk,
so if you are reading my posts, you know me pretty well.
I was reading my posts back from last year,
(I’m in the process of making photo books and a blog book, more about that later)
and I noticed that I didn’t remember some events that had happened.
I’m thankful that we had a healthy, good and positive year in 2011 and that we travelled so much.
It was good to see the daily life stuff I would otherwise have forgotten.
Someone commented once that my life seemed pretty perfect to her….
Believe me when I say, my life isn’t always happy dances and sunshine…
But I rather write more about the good things in life then about the sad things,
simply because it makes me smile to do so.
And the more you smile, the better you feel!
And my Focus has changed.
Remember, it’s my second favourite word, after Love and before Kindness.
Looking for positive things with more intent, that is what I try to do now for the last 2,5 years,
because the first two years when I moved to Switzerland I wasn’t positive at all….
If you would Google the words ‘not so happy’ you would find a picture of me staring at you…
But since that only drains energy, I started to focus again on the good things life gave me.
And by changing from the negative to the positive side of life, my thinking got clearer.
I felt more and more like my old self again.
Starting this little blog was one of my positive actions and I’m still very happy I did it!
It gives me positive energy to make my blog…
It makes me think about a whole lot of things, specially when I read that life is not so great for others…
In return it makes me humble and very grateful when I see how good life treats us…
And it reminds me that nothing is forever….
Life simply is not perfect all the time.
And I hope that, when my girls are older, and they would like to know what their mama was
doing and thinking ‘back in the days’ , this little corner of my mind can visualise that for them.
So yes….my name is Maureen and I’m Perfectly Imperfect….
Enjoy the day!
Oh, you see the photo on the top?
I totally forgot to put it into my last post….
So, firework for kids and adults from last year,
which has nothing to do with this new post, but hé,
like I said….perfectly imperfect….. xx
