Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

Here is to beat the Monday blues

For those of you who have to deal with cold feet, red noises and grey skies .. For those of you who tend to feel like my friend Hubert those days: here is your dose of Vitamin Sea!

Take a picture a day. Focus on its centre for a good 20 secondes, then slowly enlarge the view and embrace it all. Close your eyes and feel the sun rays, listen to the waves, walk on the sugar beach .. And repeat 🙂

Hope you are already feeling better. I can add Coconut or a mango juice, with fresh sea food, obviously ..

In case you need higher doses, I have what you need here and there .

Wishing you all a very happy week!

        But hot chocolates always taste so much better when it is cold out outside 😉

      The post was supposed to be online only on Monday (obviously!). See how good I am with scheduling 😛
      Glad you liked it, and that the good vibes traveled all the way. Enjoy 😉

        ah well, don’t worry, weekdays are just like our personal age – someone has come up with a rule of counting something and we believe it is kind of important. No matter which day of the week, your post and pics are an enlightenment!
        Have enjoyed the good vibes – actually, they travelled so well all the way to Northern Germany that they managed to get the family and me to the shores of the Baltic Sea today, incl. sunshine and refreshingly blue water (water temperature: 4 degress “warm” 😉 )

        😀 Temperature is all relative, after all. Cold hands are ok as long as we have warm hearts (my mantra for Europe). Enjoy!
