|Apple tree - first time blooming|
I'm having a summer holiday at home. I don't have to go anywhere. I can sleep late in the morning, have a lazy cup of coffee and go out to garden when I'm ready. To me, this kind of relaxing is both new and welcome.
|Rainy days -pretty colours|
Last winter I got really stressed and tired at work. It went so far me and my family were really worried about my health. It started a huge process in me. Recovering was, and still is, very slow, but I can see it will lead to something good. I have learned to listen to myself. Instead of pushing to the limit I can see much more value in presence. Just being here is enough.

I have decided to leave my job as headmaster, which I have done for four years, and go back to teaching first grade children. I feel really happy about that. It is amazing, what kind of energy it released in me, when I admitted to myself this job doesn't suit me - even if everyone else says I'm really good at it. I'm waiting for the autumn and planning all the nice things I want to do with my own class. For the first time in years I feel I can use my creative skills again.
|Summer holiday - also for my horse and dogs|
It has been a long jurney for a hard-working person like me. But now I understand that by demanding a lot from my self I don't help other people, like I used to think. High demands for my self mean high demands also for those around me. Instead of that I would like to have more acceptance and peace of mind in my life in the future.
