Things I'm loving latelyMarch 13, 2015
Life is awefully kind to me lately and I am on top of it; everything is going smoothly. I have learned a few valuable life lessons that have changed my view on the world and helped me a great deal. I am practising Metta (which comes from Buddhism) since a very short time and it's worth looking into! Ben and I are also still very buzy with decorating our home and, wow, do I love every bit of it. Even the less desirable chores!
In my life I have known a lot of anxiety and never a safe haven, really. Those who have also experienced this feeling, know how utterly important it is to find a safe haven, and you definitely know it when you found it. When my lovely significant other and I moved into our first home together, it was nice at first but quickly became a horror house that weighed too heavy on our shoulders - and even relationship. The place just didn't feel right and we had a very, very, very creepy and deceiving landlord. You could feel the pain in that house from years and years ago. It's, for one, a house with a holocaust history: an entire family deported to and died in Auschwitz. I wasn't walking down the same stairs the family walked (with panting, shouting Germans in their neck) so joyfully anymore. Plus, our landlord constantly walked in on us, eavesdropped us, and one time even walked in on me standing in the bathroom, ánd came into our house when we were not there. We found out about this when he forgot to take his noteblock with him. But that is all behind us now, and we have learned a lot from it.
Not too long ago I was lying in bed, staring at the ceiling with a big grin, and I was thinking that we are darn lucky with this house and the people we are surrounded with. I am lucky that we can enjoy our home without the heavy weight of debts on our shoulders, we are lucky to have sumptuous meals on the table every evening, which I cook with a lot of creativity and love. We live in a chic neighborhood, in an amazingly beautiful hanseatic city. So for me, with this insight, there was a lot to love. Let's have a look!
I am planning to use this plant for its health benefit purposes, but I am sure to order a few more just for the decorational beauty that it is.
