Root Out

Namasté! I tried to post something earlier but my creativity was taking a break… Oh, and I broke my finger, that makes it a little bit more complicated for me to type long texts… Anyway. Some time ago I had a friend over and we decided to use the sunshine and take some … well, interesting pictures ;). 012036 089 103Jup. And then I decided to go for a walk on Friday. I maybe should have warned my mum that I would be gone for several hours because as the sun started to say goodbye, she worried and went looking after me. How was she supposed to know I was only about three minutes away from our house at that time? But I enjoyed my walk, I made it to the forest and found lots of fallen trees!191 200 198 192I think that all that happened when the last storm hit our region. Hm… Oh, but before I was in between all the trees, a I got a cute scene before my lens. I once looked up all my pictures and noticed how I always photograph flowers or whatever plants but never every-day-life scenes. But the following one might be a good start.152After all I can’t help being amazed by all the details of plants. So …183 158As I sat down on a fallen tree in the forest, my camera battery was low and then died… so I was out there all by myself without a phone and without a watch, oops! This was the last picture I took:206Unfortunately for me I found the best things after my camera died, but I’m sure I will go again and then do the catching up. And something is telling me I might have found one of these ‘special places’ which I might soon call my favorite place to hide out when I need time for myself.

The weather by the way is just great here in Germany!

Reasons to have a diary

Hi, hello and welcome again!

I was thinking about what I could blog about and I thought: Why not writing about how the special little thing called diary became something very important for me. Let’s get started!180I began in 5th or 6th grade. I hate the phrase “dear diary” and then to write like the diary was some imaginary friend or therapist so I don’t do it. For me it’s enough to write down the date, the time and the day of the week. It was hard to get myself to write often or even everyday, because sometimes I was too tired to do it or just forgot it or wasn’t motivated enough. But one day I managed to make it some kind of everyday routine. And I do it for a few years now. But what is the point?039At first, to keep memories. We all know how fast we forget about funny things someone said, or even just day trips, good things. When I read my older diaries it makes me smile so much because  I’m being reminded of all those little things that made these days special. And I notice how I changed over the time. How I would have handled things differently if I could go back in time.051Second, when I read it, I sometimes feel like my eyes have been opened. I read about former problems and suddenly I see how stupid I was. Or when I thought to much about something, that turned out to be nothing big at all. And that’s important for the now. I think about my current situation and maybe I see a commonality. My ‘past-me’ sometimes solves my problems.034Third, I have to rethink the present day, what was good, what made me said, what has to be solved tomorrow, blah blah blah. And I have to decide what to write down and what not, what was important to me. And I do it subconsciously. 041Fourth, I can’t run away from my feelings. I know that it’s always better to face something instead of ignoring it. When I, like I said, rethink the whole day, I remind myself of my feelings. It’s one huge step to be happy, because in this way, I always know where things go wrong and have to reflect how I can work that out. 027Fifth, I practice writing. It’s no joke. Haha. People that know me also know my terrible hand writing, so I shouldn’t open my mouth too wide here, but I mean it. In school (at least where I live) it sometimes is important how fast you can write. And during the weeks of holiday, some people don’t even think of touching a pen, and when they’re back at school they feel like they have to learn to write all over again. Not the best argument, but still an argument though. :)046Sixth. Hm, I’m running out of arguments. Oh, a creepy one: When you have an accident, wake up and remember nothing and nobody, then you’ll just read your diary and you’ll be all good again! :D050Yes, now I’m out. I have to admit, it sometimes is annoying to write into the diary every evening but for those who are super-lazy I can say: It’s enough to write down three or four words. I call it nano-diary-writing. You write down the ‘Higlight Of The Day’ (Short:HOTD), the ‘Worst Thing Today’ (WTT) and the ‘Hope For Tomorrow’ (HFT). The next day you’ll see if you’re dreams came true and I find it amazing how sometimes everything I wished and prayed for came exactly how I wanted. 016Do you know any other reasons to write a diary? Do you already do it or why not? Let me know, I’m curious.

Thanks for reading (in case anyone reads this).

Love,

Flora ♥

Just like that

Hey again!

Hm, so how could I start …  Okay. So yesterday I had a sleepover, two friends came over and I had a great time! I wonder why we aren’t doing things like this oftener. Would be nice! And before my beautiful guests came I had to clean up my room. Unfortunately for me I love plants but let them die all the time. I don’t know what my mistake is but they always have either too much or too less water! Ugh! So The following very amazing plant had to be thrown away yesterday, it broke my heart, here’s why:Ephoto8 001You understand? This isn’t even the best picture of it, but I like how it shows of the beautiful flower pot, haha! Back to the sleepover-talk. I hate to organize, don’t tell my mom but I loooove to do things spontaneously. Which is why I probably wouldn’t have anything to eat for my guests if my dad wouldn’t have been so gentle to buy pizza. I simply adore pizza. Even though it’s not healthy and stuff, but … well, it’s delicious. I placed it in front of my piano to make it look royal. 047And then I had the gorgeous idea of eating marshmallows, mini marshmallows, grilled in the flame of a candle. The problem was, it was a smell-candle (can I say it like that or is there a special name for smelling candles?) and after a while, the marshmallows tasted like the candle … too bad. But it was kinda funny.088Yeah… Oh, and I have that one bracelet I love.Just want to show it, because I don’t know what else to put in this article ;).188braceletOh, and I got a very stunning birthday present! It’s been quite a while since my birthday but one friend hasn’t seen me since so… I like it!184 And I wanted to share something from my former photo tour, I almost forgot about it. I found it in the neighborhood.304 303Who’s idea was that? Haha, I think they’re cuties. So, that’s it, just like that. I hope you all have a great time!

Love,

Flora ♥
