Transparent door

Imagine having a transparent door. Nothing to hide, no fear from breaking in, no separation from 'in' or 'out'.
Do you think you have to be brave to have a door like this? I think so.

Imagine that that kind of door is the door to your heart... Transparent, clear, 'open'. What a brave heart you have to have to show it to the whole world! Not many people can do that.

I think there's still a way to be brave when we are not brave enough to choose a transparent door. We can decide to have an inviting door and when people knock on our door, we can let them in or not.
Choose the door that represents you - big, small, wide, decorated, painted, vintage... The door will invite people who have the same feelings, the same expectations, the same values. It will be easier to decide to let them in or not when they knock on your door. (Of course, practicing to let everyone in would be the best thing to do, but for a start, this is one way to practice bravery).
Free yourself from fear!  And be creative on a search for the door that fit you the most.

The June's theme for photo-project 'Beauty is where you find it' was: 'Doors'. Let yourself get inspired by other bloggers and their marvelous images by clicking the links on the Luzia Pimpinella's blog. Enjoy and be brave! 

Treasure hunt

Yes, that's how I call it when I'm on the move. Just me, curiosity and my camera.

The 'Beauty is where you find it' photo project theme of month May was: 'On the move'. An easy one, as I always feel 'on the move' when I'm on the way to unknown or known places with my camera. My camera makes me move!

And it always feels like I'm on a treasure hunt - not really sure what will I find, but it's always something precious, something to fill my heart with.

The colors of newly discovered jewel made me go click-click-click. So pure, so calm, so special! Walking around the lake was like a meditation, observing the colors was like watching the best movie ever, listening to the songs of various birds was like listening to the best concert in my entire life! Only Nature can be such a brilliant creator! Only Nature is full of surprises!

So, go, move, hunt for your big or small treasures! Focus on what makes you happy, inspired, eager to learn more. There's a treasure for everyone out there!

Green-land

There's a land in Slovenia I call 'Green-land'. Everything is green: the woods, the fields, the meadows, even the river...

I was lucky this year - I could spend some free days there at the end of April. Just the right time to find the nature in all its green glory. Bright greens, dark greens, sap greens, emerald greens, yellow-greens, olive greens, 'you-name-it' greens... The Earth is Art indeed!

It was impossible to take only one picture of this Paradise. You know me... - there's so much to see, so much to explore.

Playing with blurry backgrounds and blooming trees...

...and lying down on the grass.

'Beauty is where you find it' - and I like to find it in the ordinary, everyday things. They calm me down, give me energy and inspire me. They are a big part of my life...

What's your favourite green-land?

Great escapes

The theme of photoproject 'Beauty is where you find it' (#BIWYFI) in February was: Escape daily routine.

I should first admit that my biggest escape happened on that day, when I packed my bags and escaped to Austria. Many holidays that I’ve spent over the years in Austria leaded me to the place, where I said: I want to live here. And here I am.

When you find your place under the Sun, which means everything to you, it is not hard to find also the ‘thing’ that pulls you away from the daily routine.

My (great) escapes out of daily routine, away from loud kids, away from action, alarming state…, are to be found in nature. Between the mountains and the lake. Here I feel safe, here I feel wonderful. 

Every day nature shows a new face, that inspires me. Every day I’m looking forward to my little great escapes. Every day I’m thankful for every moment I spent here, where my heart sings. And this year, February was unbelievably giving, unforgettable!

I really hope that your escapes from daily routine are inspiring, refreshing and unforgettable too. And if not (yet), listen to the whispers inside you, pack your ‘bags’ and take the time off. You won’t regret it!

Winter cocooning

'Beauty is where you find it', they say and that's how a monthly photo-project by Nic is called as well. I really do believe that we can find beauty everywhere if we open wide our eyes and hearts.

The word 'cocooning' has a special meaning in the world where I live. Working with kids I'm daily faced with all kinds of forms of cocoons. Little tents in the corners, secret spaces under the blankets, everywhere-you-go soft toys snuggles... I love how creative the kids are in 'nesting', be it a tree or in a tiniest room in the house. And have you noticed how transformed the kids are after coming back from their sacred space?!
Winter is a perfect time for practicing cocooning. Making yourself warm in a cozy place (no matter how old you are) is a precious gift to yourself. So, although not soft and snuggly, I find even the firewood in front of the house a great reminder and a symbol of taking the time for myself. What I'm trying to say - no matter what's your way of cocooning, take your time for it and give it a try! Enjoy!
