Life As It Happens …


Early snowdrops compensate for a long and grey Germany winter

Mornging Tea is a good time to think about life. It just happens as life happens – at least with me.
According to my plans done months ago I currently would be in Bali right now, but I am sitting in Germany on my green sofa in Hamburg. A bit I am missing my yearly Asia trip – the sun, warmth, Asian people and world travelers, inspiration. This year just shortly before my flight I had to decide differently due to health reasons, I just didn’t want to risk it. Bali just does not have equivalent health care and if things are not as they should be may be universe gives a hint not to fly.

Snowdrops just coming out early this year do they best to reimburse things I might miss due to my missing travel. On the other hand – from a certain point on I very consciously stayed here – the place I have chosen years ago.


Somehow Germany and Hamburg is a great place to live and to do business, but yearnings are not always logical. I still didn’t finish with my travel plans, although I’ve seen some parts of the world and took time to do this.

I am not a person for this typical holiday type of trip, if any possible I do spend time in a country – as I did in Nepal for eight weeks or most of my other Asia trips of at least four weeks. I love to remember India, Nepal, Thailand and it’s islands, Cambodia, Australia, England and Whales, France, Netherlands, Norway, Italy, Poland, Russia (which was my east Germany honey moon trip) and of course different parts and places in Germany.

My Bucket List

Have you ever seen the movie The Bucket List? It’s about two men who know that their life span is limited and who do their lists and work them off – having tons of fun and do everything they ever wanted to do- with over 50… 60. Everyone should have a bucket list. Everyone!

Especially in times when things don’t go too well, you have gone off road, off the path you had planned your bucket list can help you not to lose faith and joy in life and to have something to look forward to.

Yes I do have some light blue feelings not having been in Asia this winter (is this allowed on a “dream life blog“? Yes, it is! Not everything can and needs to be super motivational and positive only!)  – but … we never know why this might be a better reality than we had initially planned. Remember: „Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.“ (John Lennon) On the other hand: it’s good to make plans – to stay focussed or create a focus, a direction you want to follow.

Dream Life Summary

  • Accept life as it happens and everything coming with it. Ask: What is good in current situation? (There will be always something good, look out for it)
  • Trust universe and creation. Sometimes things just happen differently in your favor, even it it looks differently.
  • Have a bucket list and maintain it even if life happens differently.

Dare to live your dream life! You are worth it!
