Pretty Little Flowers

How gorgeous is this little flower? :) Still enjoying these succulents SO MUCH!! I bought this one at Ikea last month, where it was kept in a room without daylight. While walking around, watching the plants, I suddenly felt like I was in some sort of sad succulent shelter where all the succulents needed to be rescued...

Well, I couldn't save them all, but I saved this one! :)

Breaking free

"Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness."

~ Frank Tyger (whoever he is...)

Darn, people! Either I'm in the middle of an early midlife crisis or I'm in desperate need of a holiday... ;) I've been feeling the urge to break free lately, but with a mortgage, a day-job and tons of responsibilities and obligations, breaking free is sometimes easier said than done...

In my case freedom is mostly about creating a certain state of mind. It's the challenge of letting go of my worries and thoughts, and enjoying the little things. It doesn't come natuarally for me, so I have to work for it. And working for it is often very easy to forget, or very hard to take time for.

But sometimes I succeed. Like on the day I took these pictures. A day filled with sunshine, riding my bike, enjoying the beautiful world around me and eating ice cream. 

It was a Good Day indeed :)
