My two wonderful boys…just at dad’s humble reminder to himself.
Two very different human beings and both with a tough start of life as adoptees. However, still growing stronger and mature despite their legacy of loss and betrayal. I see them grow every day developing into adulthood…wonderful…their history will never leave them but may live latent and hidden on the inside. But they are mine and they belong to our family forever. Love you guys!💙+💚
I have long been thinking about smoking (no, I don’t wanna start).
However, we all live in a society where smokers are being stigmatized and frowned upon. This makes me wonder why our culture has ‘agreed’ on chasing smokers who can’t barely find a spot to enjoy their addiction. And it is only getting harder. Just think about travling – train, bus, plane…the worksplace…public areas…etc. etc.
Yes, I do understand that other people can be annoyed and possibly affected by smokers standing close by and yes, I do understand that smoking can cause cancer and other serious health issues which later will require treatment and tax dollars…
All that being said though, why don’t we let smokers enjoy their cigarettes and respect their choice to reduce their age. Shouldn’t it be the individuals right to make the decision themselves? Why do the rest of us think that we have the right to chose for them and know what is better for another human being. Imagine if smokers just have accepted that they wish to live strong and die young? Is a longer life more valuable than a short?
I have nothing against smokers as long as we all (smoker and non-smokers) respect the individual choices of each other. One type of life style can be just as good as another.
Yesterday I had an life changing wake-up call. A long time and dear old friend had gotten ill – really ill. So serious that only a specialized hospital could help. A simple pain, turned worse and worse without any doctor took the small effort of examining more closely and performing a MRI scan. Once the MRI scan finally was ordered it was almost too late. I don’t wanna write more details but another 24 hours would have been fatal without proper surgery. What the future will look like for my friend is very uncertain – it all may return after many months or may never improve with a resulting degradation of life quality forever.
When you experience these thing you have to stop and think – and take a holistic and realistic perspective on life. Are we spending time on the right things? Are we prioritizing our life carefully enough or just wasting precious time. Are we with the right people, is the job the right one, do we travel enough, do we care enough about our children and what about our parents who get older every day?
I mean – life can change 180 degrees in a split second – sometimes you just need to revise and adjust or perhaps just continue as before – but anyway stop and think…and decide then. Your life and “ecosystem” deserves it.
I will cross my fingers for good strong health, fast recovery and a happy future for my friend.
It has been raining for quite a while now and damn it’s getting annoying…not a day without thunderstorms passing, hail showers, gusty winds and really low temperstures. We are almost in the month of May so where is the spring hiding?
This weekend I am at a seminar on the beautiful Rebild Banker and on my way here the rain suddenly stopped and the sun got the power.
I’ll cross my fingers for a positive weather change coming soon.
Yesterday and the day before yesterday were very stressful and emotional days. Previous events several years back came to a final test and the system and society voted in favor of us which was a great relief. We have now passed a significant milestone which has been latently sitting there waiting for years. We can now look forward towards the light despite the fight is never over until the fat lady sings. We will continue to fight and challenge the system for injustice, unfair and unreasonable behavior and decisions.
We need to protect our shared planet and create sustainable lifestyles so our children, grand children etc can enjoy and experience the rich and amazing nature that surrounds us and make us able to breathe and live happy lives.
A big thanks to all the organizations working tirelessly for making better conditions for the Earth (and us).
