Busy

Dear followers,

at the moment my life is so busy that I haven’t written a post since a long time. Sorry for this. But I will keep on writing….

I am very busy with my job right now: flying to many cities of the world.

And when I am home a few days, I need to rest and also get a lot of things done. But I wanted to let you know, that I am still there =)

I want to share some pictures with you which I took lately. The first one is from the city where I live and the second one, where I traveled a few days ago.

Have you ever experienced an uncomfortable situation? I think everybody has, but everybody handles those situations differently. I read a very good quote lately: “Sometimes situations can feel so uncomfortable and rife with anxiety that we jump to action just to get the turmoil to go away. Instead, giving yourself that extra day, week, or month to digest the situation before moving forward is all you need to stay in control. So sleep on it. Sometimes, while you’re waigin, things may surface that make your decision that much easier.” (Book: Emotional intelligence 2.0)

I learned during the last years not to jump into action right away, but think first =) and sleep on it. I am a very active person and I really had to learn it. And I must say: its way better than jumping into action right away!

???What experience did you have with “jumping into action” right away???

    Well spoken, I’ve always thought that it’s better to think things through and have a period of contemplation before acting. This is an area where everyone can improve regardless of what level they’re at in life.

    I have learned the hard way to wait for God’s peace before making a final decision.
    I hope you’re enjoying your work and travels.

    oh boy … I needed to hear that … sometimes I long for the people’s approval more than I long for God’s go-ahead … I am getting better … maybe that has to do with age 🙂

    Your quote is very true. That is a lesson that I have had to learn as well! 🙂 and have to keep on practicing!

        Yes that’s true! I remember writing you telling that I was a teacher at one stage. You can read in my about section that right now I am flying 🙂

    Well you know me well and at times I need to think before I just jump into my decision to go ahead. I think we also need balance. At times I enjoy the excitement of spontaneity and at other times I need to sit for a while with the decisions at hand and for me if God has given me peace about either it has been the right action to take. Miss you xooxox

    Jumping into action? Panic, fear, feeling responsible for making something (good) happen, no peace, no joy.

    …in short, nothing good came of it. In fact, I had to retrace my steps and undo some of what was done in haste!

    I think your advice is very good, and this is how I try to do things; however, when I do jump the gun, I have discovered that even then God can make something good out of the situation. It is definitely better to wait for His go ahead first – less painful!
