    Thought for the day

    Making Mistakes

    Do you know people who can never be wrong? They know everything about everything. And if they make a mistake and are told so, their reaction can be anything from sulking to rage.

    What are they so afraid of? Have they been brought up so that no mistakes were ever allowed? Are they afraid they won't be accepted if they make a mistake? Have they been punished for making a mistake?

    There's nothing wrong in making mistakes, if we learn from them. A mistake is not really a mistake until we repeat it. If we concentrate on what caused the mistake and start finding ways to change that and learn how not to repeat it, it was all for the good.

    Many of our mistakes are things that are in our own mind only. We do something against our own values. Others might not consider these mistakes at all. If this is the case, use this to learn about yourself. 

    If you make a mistake at work or in a social situation, then find out what the mistake was, what you need to learn so you don't repeat it, and do your best to learn the skills you lacked.

    And if you make a funny mistake, laugh away! People who know how to laugh at themselves are the ones who can handle their mistakes in their stride.

    I for example managed to burn down the lunch soup. Which was interesting in itself, as the soup itself was frozen (yes, a real frozen brick I had to melt in a kettle). Now I'd say that takes some talent to burn a frozen soup!

    Write down the positive things in your day, and let them lift your spirits
    Happiness Journal / Lovers at Sunset

    One of my favourite places in Finland is Koli. It is situated in eastern Finland and is one of the oldest rock formations in the world, the roots of an ancient mountain range (Karelids), which were formed 2 billion years ago. The energy on top of Koli is amazing - soothing, warm... People from a nearby hotel gather here to watch the sunset. We have been there many times with my husband.

    One evening this couple was sitting quietly here, watching the sun go down, and I took this photograph.

    If you wish to write down your happy moments with your significant other, here's the journal for you.

    Today's Happiness

    Ice Cream and Blueberries

    Apparently this corona situation makes me want to eat goodies. This time it was a bowl of old fashioned vanilla ice cream (as in: creamy), blueberries, a piece of dark mint chocolate and a lemon biscotti from a tiny Italian delicatessen. You should not let me go there. I always end up carrying a big bag of yummies home.

    What made you happy today? Send a note and tell, if you wish to share your little happy moment with others.
