Counting blessings

Don't you sometimes just wish you could freeze time? Or that you could go back in time and freeze it then. I have had so many beautiful moments that I, looking back on it now, have not enjoyed to the fullest. Lost moments with friends, lost conversations, lost butterflies and times of complete peace and ease.
Having this month cleanse me spiritually made me realise just how blesses you are if you are able to enjoy the here and now to the fullest. We, correction, I get so distracted by everything and everyone that I sometimes have to look back and think..'Wow...that was actually a great moment'. But how wonderful would it be if we would be able to stop and count our blessing in the midst of it all.

The clock will always keep ticking but if you are able to count your blessings at any given time, that does not matter. It does not matter how quick the time goes. What matters is that you are grateful.

'Wisdom...do you think we will ever truly be grateful if life keeps distracting us?' asked the little girl. 'And is it really our fault then?' she added. Wisdom looked up and said: 'That, my child, is a great question. You have a great mind. And yes, you can be grateful at any given time. There is no right or wrong and it is never too late to start counting your blessings.' 'Can I start now she asked'?
Wisdom nodded and she closed her eyes to start counting.
Not opening her eyes ever again.

The Tree of Life

All of a sudden it hit me. While looking up at the sky. Seeing the white clouds against the bright blue sky. I just knew that I...am part of something so much bigger.


See if that leaf falls off the tree, the tree will remain upright. That however does not mean that that specific leaf is not important to the tree. It is not insignificant. Because that leaf is part of the soul purpose of the tree. It is there to add more oxygen to the environment. It is there for cleaner air. It is there for a purpose, though it may not look like it on the surface. Just because the leaf takes up only a tiny part of the tree, it does not mean it is insignificant.

You are not insignificant.
And if you ever feel like you are...
Just take a good look at the trees all around us.
And remember.
You are part of a bigger picture.
You. Matter.

Follow me around Istanbul - Vlog

Hello dear friends,

So in April I went to Istanbul for a few days with my mom and my sisters. We had such a wonderful time and even though it was my second time there, I did see some places I hadn't seen before. Such as the Galata Tower up close. I even had a photo-shoot there with two of my sisters! (Some of the pictures are already up on my Instagram).

You can watch the vlog to see all the places we visited. I loved it and especially since I shared the experience with my family.

Watch the vlog here:



Hope you enjoyed!

Xoxo,
