You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.
Easier said than done, right?
I have a poster in my office with a few simple tips that help when I’m struggling:
- take a deep breath
- stay present
- drink water
- go outside
- ask for help

Ieraudzīju, stāv uz galda. Nez vai šis var salabot arī salauztu dzīvi, ieplaisājušas attiecības vai saburzītus sapņus? 🤔
I noticed that this stands on my table. Can it repair also broken life, cracked relationship or wrinkled dreams? #ceturtdienaspārdomas#reflections#reflectionsonlife
Its all in the details. For me atleast. I am a little things person. The small details. The little touches. Dont get me wrong. The big picture is important too but for anything be it art, life or relationships its always the tiny details that takes it from being good to great, excellent to amazing and outstanding to extraordinary.
What do you think? Is the big pic more imp or is it the small details that really make the big pic to begin with?
Is that me? My mum has always said how surprised she is when she looks in the mirror, that there’s an older person looking back at her.
Once I was sat on the tube and I looked down the carriage to see someone looking back at me who looked just like my mum. It took a couple of seconds for me to realise I was looking onto a black screen between the seats, and the face I was looking at was my own.
As I have started to get older but feel younger I can appreciate the dichotomy she describes even more.
What goes through your head when you see your reflection?
“The problem that we have with a victim mentality is that we forget to see the blessings of the day. Because of this, our spirit is poisoned instead of nourished.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
Sometime humanity is able to create stunning incredible things that are lifting people souls to another level of vibrations, doesn't matter what culture both creation and observers are coming from. Notre Dame was one of this. To see it going into flames is of course sad and chocking and made me realise how everything is temporary. Panta Rei. Notre Dame got transformed. Unbelievable, buy so it is. Now we have the glorious opportunity to learn from it, to feel its lost, to cry its ruin, and to let its undeniable inspiring streght flow into us so that we can become inspiring being. And maybe a more inspired, conscious and elevated society. . #notredame#reflectionsonlife#learninglessons#pantarei#luisacatuccigallery

Still so many l want keep up
Еще так много хочется успеть,
Себя растратить, впрок не оставляя,
Дойти, догнать, дочувствовать, допеть,
Существованье #смыслом наполняя.
Сказать: #спасибо , #жизнь , за смех, за плач,
За все, что так легко и так непросто,
За маленькие капельки #удач
И за #мечты огромнейшего роста.
За то, что #сил дала свой крест нести,
Что всякий раз, споткнувшись, #поднималась
И за #друзей , которыми в пути
Так щедро я за что-то награждалась.
Что радость позволяла брать в кредит.
И я брала, по ниточке таскала
Из боли, слез, обманов и обид
И кружево #любви из них сплетала.
Что каждый день у жизни в долг брала
Улыбку и #надежду , понимая -
Без них нельзя, без них была бы я
Совсем не я, а женщина другая...
За то, что не завидовать могу
И правду говорить в лицо не трушу,
Что понимаю: я в большом долгу
У жизни и за тело, и за душу.
Что научила сердце в рифму петь,
Что я дружить, прощать, любить умею..
Так много надо мне еще успеть!
Я постараюсь. Может быть, успею. #хабаровскийкрай#хабаровск#будниедни#весна#апрель#четверг#springtime#thursday#reflectionsonlife#клавдиясеменовна#стихи#стихиру

Really. Thank God there’s finally a hint of Spring. 🤞
Today as we buried a beloved family member, I'm reminded again of an undeniable truth- Death is a ruthless enemy. It does not care whether a boy is too young to lose his mother, it does not care whether a toddler is too innocent to know grief, it does not care whether a man is prepared to be both a mom and a dad to his kid. Death is a foe we are absolutely powerless against. Life is short. Life is fragile. And so, I made a pact to myself that while I'm alive, I will live life. Wisely and meaningfully. Will not waste a precious second on things that does not matter, things that never matter. #reflectionsonlife#mourningthoughts#holdingontojehovahspromise
A friend recently asked me, “When you’re up there in the mountains do you ever try yodeling?”
My first response was, “Of course not!” Followed by much laughter.
My second response was a set of questions inside myself, “Why not? Why don’t I scream? Why do I just stand looking?”
I think the answer is contentment. The frustrations of my life don’t follow me into the forest; they aren’t very good at hiking. I have a deep respect for nature, and I am overwhelmed by gratitude and peace each time I can walk among mountains and trees.
