Blast from the Past: A Bee’s Breath

August 2019

I am still laughing about my typos…

March 2015

Over at Coleen’s blog “Silverthreading” there is a great meme called “Writer’s Quote Wednesday”. Please head over to learn more about it as well as finding other great quoting posts.


It’s a hard days night and I haven’t planned to post anything. But as some women are addicted to shoes I am addicted to writing and blogging especially. And I have no chance whatsoever if there is such a brilliant meme like Colleen’s ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Got some extra work added to my already hard day-job-work-day this morning. I had it coming as I am about to change my habit of thinking negatively. Usually, I seem to expect the worst and I realised that what I think/expect will happen.

Last night I thought about how it would be if I would think about stressful situations at work and expect to succeed and manage everything instead of telling myself “I can’t do it!” That in mind I went to work thinking:” Ok, no matter what will come I just go with the flow and deal with it!” And it came thick. Really thick!

Never mind the particulars. Yes, I got through it. I dealt with it. And I managed much better than expected but still, I got angry. Really angry that I had to deal with more work than I already had to anyway. Of course, I know there is no point in getting angry as things are as they are. I chose to stay in this job even though I know it’s a modern workhouse. I could go anytime.

I suspect though that’s part of the change: Your mind has figured the new thinking but your emotions aren’t there yet. They will though. Sooner or later they will. And I won’t get angry or just see it coming and let it go.

“And what’s the quote?” you may ask.

Well, I just realised I can’t spell ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s supposed to be:

breathe out

breathe in

calm yourself

breathe out 

breathe in

know yourself

breathe out

breathe in

love yourself!


It’s a poem I have written a few years ago and even made a bi-lingual YouTube video of it.

When it comes down to it you just have to breathe. In and out. And the rest will come. No matter if change, or knowing yourself or just calming yourself.

In this sense: Good night and good breathing ๐Ÿ™‚


This post is pure Stream of Consciousness writing so please bear with me ๐Ÿ™‚
