Creative Jewelling & Life

Which great intentions is it possible to put into this post?

I’m still thinking about my future life and of course my pets. I haven’t found out, what to do with myself yet.

In some ways I appreciate the nice weather we are going to have now, except the freezing degrees as we are promissed monday night. There should be Spring now in Spain, no matter how I put it out here.

The Winters have never been my favorite and neither are they here. The houses are not well isolated against the cold, only against the warm and Spain is not warm in the Winter, but not as cold as where I come from or where many of other bloggers live f.x. Canada and North America.

I love the Spring here, not too warm and not too cold. The Summers can be pretty hot here. In my time here I experienced more than 45 degrees C. which is very hot. It is not possible to do anything else than try to stay cool inside. The Sun is burning very much from around 11 am and until 5 pm, which is many hours, where it is best to stay away from the Sun also caused our health to avoid skin cancer.

There are many beautiful places where it could be interesting to try to live, but I don’t wish to leave Europe. I have my family here and don’t see them too much even I’m not so far away. I can’t travel for vacation for myself. I don’t have anyone here, that I would trust to take good care of my pets in the meanwhile. It is also very expensive to travel.

I have always appreciated my home, why I also have had pets mostly of my life. When my kids were younger I choosed to have animals also for them to learn how to treat the pets with respect, which I find important. Specially to avoid accidents with bites etc.

I miss my family and wish I could see them much more than now, and I try to figure out, how that could be possible, when they also live in two different countries. So it would not do it all just by moving closer to them. I can only live in one place at time, even I could wish it different.

How do you handle your life, when the big questions come to your mind?

I walk by the beach, sit at the terrace and enjoy the warm from the Sun, meditate and try to figure out, what is the most important for me in my life.

Big questions demand time and thinking also to avoid to regret, no matter what I will do.

  1. Very big questions, Irene. Nice post, too. It’s not easy to be present for one’s family when they are so far away. I think about that a lot, myself.

  2. So hard, Irene. I have lived states away from my family since my children were very young so I know it is not easy. Nor is any answer….I try to visit, but I too, long for closeness.

  3. Good questions Irene and ones many of us struggle with most of our lives. We make decisions and we live by them. I made a decision to buy my family home and live where I do. I live in a house in which I grew up and which is very much a part of me and I am happy with that. Hope you have a good weekend. Michael.

    • Thank you Michael and good that you are satisfied with your choice. I haven’t lived many years in same house in my life. Maybe caused jobs I moved and did not found a place where I wished to stay for the rest of my life.

  4. Well I hope your family will come and visit you soon. It sounds like a nice vacation spot for them to come to. πŸ™‚

    Hi Irene, sometimes we know the answers already but we do not like what they entail….. you will find the right answer when it is time for it πŸ™‚ ~hugs~ Bee

  6. I like the way you wrote this, Irene. πŸ™‚ And thank you for sharing your thoughts and concerns. When something big comes up in my life I usually just go with my intuition. It hasn’t led me wrong very often. πŸ™‚
