Today was a special day in my country. Our Queen Beatrix resigned and her oldest son Willem-Alexander is now our new king.
So filled with national pride, I put on my brand new bikini from Drift, that has a special dutch print! Thank you Kallisto Destiny for loving us dutchies!
Our new king has a big passion for sports and he sure loves boats! So in his honor I had to add a boat into my pics today!
(Thank you Sam Laszlo for lending me your boat!)

I was reading up on some of my favorite RL blogs and found this article here, that inspired me for todays post. I’m sharing it because I think it makes a good read and it actually does fit the pics
If life has challenged you and you feel like you keep getting swept under the waves, perhaps it is time to figure out how to ride the wave! So many things can feel like crashing waves coming down on us. Finances, health, relationships, children, jobs and more can have a harrowing effect on us. Some situations are far worse than others, but ultimately it is up to us as to how we handle the waves crashing in on us.
Sometimes the waves keep coming one after another, without a moment to catch our breath. Life isn’t always fair when it comes to timing and challenges being one after the other, or worse all at the same time. In those cases, it’s important to take (a lot) of deep breaths and try to deal with one wave at a time.
The first step in riding the waves of life, is to acknowledge when you feel like you are going under from too much. Too much of anything can include a lot of good things, good changes and exciting things. Sometimes getting married, having a baby, a move to your dream home, all good things, can be very overwhelming. Whatever is overwhelming needs to be recognized and accepted as what it is, for you. Ask yourself if you are feeling stress, pressure, fear, anxiety, sadness etc. and really accept that your feelings are normal and acceptable.
Once you embrace your feelings surrounding your circumstances, find ways that work for you to feel you are riding the wave, rather than being swept under. I have practiced many things to deal with overwhelming life stuff and some things work better than others. The key is to see what works best for you.
Often our own ability to manage our thoughts, from spiraling out of control and being consumed with fear and anxiety, is our best tool when the waves feel like they are crashing down on us. Sometimes are perception can be adjusted so that we don’t see things as being so bad or impossible. We do not have control over certain things or people, but we can control how we handle life.
Please feel free to share your tips to not letting the waves of life crashing in pull you under. Someone else may really benefit from your input!

Worrying means spending a lot of time thinking about bad things and being preoccupied with negative possibilities. The more you do it, the bigger your worries become. You may even find yourself worrying about all the time you’ve spent worrying.
There are many different types of worries. They include gloomy thoughts about what might happen in the future, about what is happening in the present, and about what is already in the past.
Finding the quote I used to name this blogpost, made me realise once again I worry way to much over things I can’t change anyway. Worrying non stop won’t change they way things are, so it’s best to spend the time changing instead of wasting it on worries…

Yes today mr Hawks has his RL birthday! Since this man is extra special to me, I just couldn’t just let this day pass without making him feel extra loved on his birthday!
We all love and know him for all the amazing hairs he’s been making over the past years but there’s so much more to him than hair! I’ve been lucky enough to get to know him a little over the past weeks and he’s simply amazing. A sweet caring person with an amazing sense of humor! I keep discovering new things about this man that amaze me! So much passion in what he does and always eager to learn new things.
And it’s not just me who noticed this special person… Many of you have come together to wish Truth a happy happy birthday! Be sure to check out all these people and read what they have to say about Mr Hawks <333
A special thank you to all 141 people that were willing to pose for me and share some birthday wishes! It’s been an amazing week. I think I must have broken some picture taking records doing this but it’s been all worth it!
Truth, I know you’ll read this…
Happy birthday hubby!
You’re loved! <333
Due to many things going on in my life at the moment, I have decided it’s time for a little break from SL, Flickr & my blog.

I want to thank my wonderful friends for the HUGE amount of love and support you’ve shown me over the past days.’
Designers & Bloggers, I will be back to blogging after my break and try catch up. Thank you for the never ending support and for understanding.

Don’t we all feel sometime, that life just seems to be rushing by? Every now and than we all need to stop and take a deep breath and see what’s there, realise what’s happening and if it’s all still going as planned or changes must be made…
With that in mind I felt inspire to take these pics and share a classic businesslook, that I absolutely love! <3
