Hallöchen mit Öchen ❤️
Barnaby hatte heute so absolut keine Lust rauszugehen und draußen war die Runde, wie in den letzten paar Tagen bereits, einfach nur anstrengend 
Momentan ist nämlich gefühlt jede Hündin läufig und das macht Barnaby absolut verrückt 🤪
Überall müssen wir mindestens 3 mal vorbei, er wechselt im Sekundentakt die Richtung und in die Nähe der Wohnungstür kommt man, unter einer Stunde, schon mal gar nicht 😂🙄
Ganz viele meinten zu mir, dass ich ihn ja einfach kastrieren solle, dann hätte ich den ganzen Stress nicht und er wäre insgesamt ruhiger. 
Aber mal ganz ehrlich, warum sollte ich das tun? 
Ich werde ihm das sicherlich nicht antun, nur weil er 2-3 mal im Jahr für eine Woche am Rad dreht! 
Er springt keine Hunde an und auch nicht uns, ja nicht mal Kuscheltiere oder ähnliches. 
Er ist einfach ein wenig durch den Wind in dieser Zeit und solange es keine Gefahren mit sich bringt wie Hodenkrebs oder Erkrankungen an der Prostata, bleibt alles so wie es ist! 
Und unruhig ist er manchmal eben einfach. Er ist ein Hund. Die sind eben so. Da hilft die richtige Auslastung und gut ist. 
Barnaby braucht am Tag mindestens 2,5 Stunden, wo er seiner Energie freien Lauf lassen kann. Das kann toben sein oder einfach nur Gassi gehen, Denkspielzeuge oder Kommandos üben. 
Diese Zeit versuchen wir ihm jeden Tag zu geben und zur Not wird halt nochmal um 22 Uhr gespielt. 
Dafür brauche ich keine Kastration, denn Unruhe ist, meiner Meinung nach, kein Grund dafür. 
Ich bin keine Person die jetzt was gegen Kastration im Allgemeinen hat, ich denke nur, dass es einen triftigeren Grund haben sollte, als Unruhe, weil es einen zuhause stört, dass der Hund sich wie ein Hund benimmt 🤷🏻‍♀️
So, das ist meine Meinung dazu. 
Was denkt ihr? Seid ihr der gleichen Meinung oder habe ich gerade bei euch voll verhauen? 😂

Off the back of my last post about blocked milk ducts I thought I would also share how this has impacted my view on breastfeeding. I don’t feel that beautiful bond between myself and Freddie that some mums feel whilst breastfeeding. For me, it’s just feeding and nourishing him. I am simply his fridge 😂
It takes a huge toll breastfeeding because you are literally the only person that can feed this lil human and they rely solely on you for everything. 
When I had the blocked ducts, this completely changed, I relied on FREDDIE to help release the blockages and it was the one time I’ve truely felt this insane bond whilst feeding him because for once, I relied on him and not the other way around and that’s pretty damn special. I finally stopped and thought that this is what he feels, every second of every day. I am guilty of forgetting this fact and I now continually remind myself of this and it helps through the tough times. 
I am such awe of my lil spaghetti and love him so much more every single day.

Okay someone tell me why I didn't enjoy working out before 😝 I don't know if this is what you'd consider a new found love, or if it's just a phase. The fact that I get to escape my house late at night for some alone time...and the chance to focus on myself while not having to care for a dependant...sign.me.up! Having something just for me, where I can do my own thang and not worry about keeping tiny humans alive or feeding anyone other than myself a snack for a couple hours, is pretty friggin awesome, not to mention the mental stress it takes off of my day. (Now I understand why my sisters were always crazy about them gym classes)

Just because the bride
wants to be unfaithful
to the groom does not
mean the groom is
going to welcome her. 
I find it interesting how
people force God into 
accepting that which 
He forbode in the Law.

The church then claims 
Ignorance or says the 
Law is no longer valid.

But in the prophecies 
He makes clear that 
when He returns, He 
will judge those who
did not obey the Law.

#Ladies, how often do you stop and think “what did I do to deserve this?”... in POSITIVE situations? 
It’s so easy to take things for granted when they’re working in our favour, yet feel hard done by when they’re not. We often feel deserving of good things and undeserving of everything else... Think about it: isn’t it amazing that sometimes, when we’re just minding our own business, good things come our way? Maybe we are gifted something, someone offers to help us with something we haven’t asked for, we get recognised for something that comes naturally or ANYTHING, really! Good things happen to us all the time, and the more we recognise and appreciate it, the less we feel hard done by when things don’t go as planned. 
Which areas of your life did you receive unearned grace and favour in this year?

The last few days have been CRAZY

Not only have I been moving house, unpacking, trying to stay organised when there's shiiiiit everywhere, keep up to date with clients, my other job, trying to settle in to my new home, trying to eat well, sleep well, plus so many other jiggly little things to do, but I'm also trying to sort other exciting new things on the horizon... FAR. OUT. 😂 Never been so busy in my life!

Training has definitely been slack as a result, but finally getting back into the swing of things and it feels goooood to be back in routine!! 😊

Dezember 2019: ich habe meinen Job gekündigt, um neue Wege zu gehen. Wir Juristen tendieren ja dazu, unser Leben immer gut organisiert zu halten und bevorzugen dabei den Lebenslauf geradlinig zu gestalten, um Brüche zu vermeiden. Aber manchmal, sind solche Brüche unvermeidlich. Ich habe seit dem Abschluss meines ersten Staatsexamens keinen einzigen Tag verbracht, ohne mich in einem Anstellungsverhältnis zu befinden. Bis heute! Gestern habe ich einer potentiellen Zusammenarbeit den Rücken zugewandt und stehe jetzt erstmals ohne Beschäftigung dar.

Geht mir die Muffe? Nö! Naja, die Zukunft hat noch keine scharfen Konturen und dass macht mich als Jurist mit der Neigung zur Überorganisation natürlich verrückt. Werden wir im Podcast über meinen Weg in einen neuen Job und meine Bedenken reden? Na Klar! Vivien von #employmee

Christmas time places a lot of expectation on us. We feel like we should be enveloped in family, gratitude, reflection, but sometimes it’s full of pressure, strain and frustration.

Christmas last year was one of the lowest points for me personally. I had extreme post-natal depletion (check out Dr. Oscar Serralach for more info) and had been living for nearly 12 months on less than 4 hours of sleep a night.

I had gone back to work when Tully was four months old which had hung over me heavily and Cullen and I were not functioning as a couple, as parents or even as humans.

I came across the book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It spoke to my soul. It also spoke to Cullen and we were finally able to have something to hold on to, a structure or a mantra – whatever you want to call it.

Something that we could both come back to and use to help us get through things. I guess it’s similar for people who have faith or a strong cultural connection that allows them to fall back on it when the water gets murky. It taught me that everyone needs something bigger than them – even if it’s just a book, to draw clarity from.

This isn’t me trying to preach or sitting here telling everyone that we’ve got it all together. We don’t and usually, you’ll know as I’ll come out and share bits and pieces. 
But we both listened to the book again last week in audio format. It’s deep and complex so for me I have to listen to it regularly.

It was a really good reminder to try your very best not to let things that are said, assumptions that are made or actions that are taken by others be the things that shape how you feel about yourself.

And at a time where the lead up to Christmas is full of expectations on how we should be feeling, the closeness we all should have and the gratitude we should be celebrating it really can throw us into a state of depression or sadness if we’re not which is exactly how I felt last year.

And so I wanted to share this, maybe the timing might be just right as well for someone like it was me.

In 1945 this record was giving by Dr Daniel Beltz. Of course we are all thinking this is false, but information is showing it's true. This is totally up for discussion and what you believe.

Do you think true or false👇👇?

Once I hit 30 it seemed like everyone started getting married. What I noticed was that for a lot of people it was less about a bond and more about a checklist. People get established in their careers and next step find someone to marry. What seems to be not so common is friendship and real chemistry (spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, purpose). One person said to me 2 months into their marriage if they planned a trip with friends their husband would not someone they would even think of inviting. They really didn't enjoy spending time with them like that... 🤔😒This can't be real life, I thought. It is real life though. Marriage is an idol for many. Even though we live in a period of history and most of us within a culture where we get to choose, where we get to decide with whom we will spend the rest of of our lives with we often dishonor ourselves when we choose. We can choose to marry someone who is our best friend. Someone we actually like. Someone we would want our children to grow up and be like or marry. Someone who sees us, embraces us fully, loves us...flaws and all. Somehow, some way, often times we choose a title over a true connection. Men and women. Like, folks will 100%  KNOW they are about to pledge forever to someone who is NOT their person but will do it anyway... BY CHOICE. And will have the nerve to spend a rack of money on a wedding to marry someone that you have a lukewarm connection with and will most likely leave after serving a 2 to 10 yr sentence. If you are single (unmarried) my challenge to you is.. I beg you seek a true connection/bond with someone on every level before even thinking about a title. Your life, your emotional well being, your joy, your peace, your time, your everything is much more valuable than a title. Because with the WRONG one that is what this beautiful thing will be diminished to..just a title. And just as flippantly as the title was given will be how easily it can be taken away. You each deserve more than being a line on a to do list. - Much ❤ #IamColeMichele #SinOfBeingSingle

If you see me less I‘m doing more🙏🏼
.

Friends, entschuldigt dass ich momentan deutlich inaktiver bin als bis vor einiger Zeit. Ja, auch für Leute die aktiv Instagram betreiben gibt es noch ein Leben außerhalb das nunmal viel Zeit in Anspruch nimmt. In meiner jetzigen Größenordnung reicht mein Verdienst „noch“ nicht für den Lebensstandard, den ich mir selbst ermöglichen möchte. Aus dem Grund gehe ich seit längerem wieder „normal“ arbeiten. Ich merke dass es mir gut tut einen geregelteren Tagesablauf und auch andere Pflichten außer die auf Instagram zu haben. Also seid mir nicht böse dass nicht mehr ganz so viel Spökes abgeht hier😅
