If you do what you did, you will get what you got

About 2.5 years ago I did the NLP practioner training in the Netherlands. If you don’t know what NLP is, check out this link. Personally, I have found NLP to be a practical and powerful tool. Whenever I think about NLP the first thing that comes to mind is the phrase: when you do what you always did, you will get what you always got. This training really helped me to change and do things in a different way that works better for me and helped me move forward (and leave some difficult stuff behind me instead of just trying to bury it, which didn’t really work for me).

Fall has come!

After a long, beautiful summer, fall has arrived. And not just on the calendar unfortunately, when I got up this morning rain was pouring down. Oh, well, I guess it’s a good thing, they call Washington the evergreen state and if we want to keep all this beautiful green, we can’t do without that wet stuff. The bright side is…… fall fashion!!!!! OMG I love this fall’s fashion, I’m afraid I don’t have enough money, there is just so much that I would like to have and I love this season’s colors.

(What) to cook or not to cook?

Over the years I’ve become more and more interested in (healthy) food. Especially when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease a few years ago. I’ve become convinced that one of the worst things to eat is refined sugar and once you start looking for that, you will notice there are a lot of things that contain sugar (even things you might not expect it in). Once you start reading food labels, it’s impossible to stop.

Sew Happy

I recently discovered the magic of sewing. Really, it’s just magical to create clothes out of a piece of fabric. Since I only just started, I still have a lot to learn. The internet is a great source for all kinds of tutorials (don’t know how we survived without in the past 🙂 ) and since a couple of months I use Pinterest to collect the tutorials and inspirational pictures I find on the internet.

Everything has beauty

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Confucius This quote is one of the things that inspired me to start this blog. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely one of those people that tends to get wrapped up in all the big and small things they need to do and as a result no longer see, let alone enjoy, the beautiful little things that cross their path.
