It’s all about love and letting GO

Good Friday! It seems spring has finally come to Riga and hopefully winter has stepped back. Last night after a long, wonderful, but crazy day I read a quote Ineta Ķirse (yoga teacher and photographer) posted on her Facebook timeline, that says: “Release and detach from every person, every circumstance, every condition, and every situation that no longer serves a divine purpose in your life. All things have a season, and all seasons must come to an end. Choose a new season, filled with purposeful thoughts and activities. By Iyanla Vanzant”, and today waking up and letting sun in my bedroom I had the…impossible to write in words feeling…well, you are the whole universe and you can’t stop only in one season, nor can you expect people act the way you want it… During an interview this week I was asked what’s the motto of my life, and I said: “It’s all about letting go”. When you let things flow, people go and just enjoy, be happy and satisfied with yourself, suddenly everything happens the way you have dreamed of! I do believe in love!

Here is my week in pictures:

I used to enter these grand doors when I was a little girl where I joined my Mom at work. That day I entered for an interview.

And this is what he wrote for me…”Santa…there is something about sun, so it means a photo.” What more could I ask for…Thank you… And it made me think of another person, who gave me a present…a notebook and wrote down:

I don’t know yet what I’m doing this weekend. It is sometimes so great not to have a plan and to be open for adventures coming your way. Or I might just stay at home, read books, watch silly movies, go to museum or paint. What are your plans?! Have a great end of the week. Have fun!
