Do you ever wonder why some people spend their energy on things that you wouldn't think should matter to them?!
Do they live such a boring life that complaining about others, make them happy? Or are they just stuck in negative thoughts which make them jealous? I don't know...but I do know I will not let that kind of people affect me. I think being nice, happy and polite even to them make positive energy flows. Who knows, maybe one day they will change.
For example, the new gate I wrote about here.
Well, the President (yes in Spain that's the name of the community boss) of my community sent a message to me through someone else. The gate has to be lower and painted green! A neighbour had made a complaint.
Honestly, I really don't care about the gate. If someone gets annoyed about it I will gladly do as that person wish but do they really have to call the president? If that person would have come to me directly it could have saved several people's time and energy. Maybe I would even have invited that person for a coffee?
I think most people would feel closer to one another and happier if we would just have the courage to speak to each other.
So here is the gate now. Hope it will satisfy everyone now. :-)
The whole incident made me think of my good friend here in Gran Canaria, Ulrica Ask Morling. We are different as people but have the same values such as life is about joy, being kind and everything doesn't have to be perfect. She is an artist among other things.
I love her new Gran Canaria painting collection! For me, the paintings represent strong women, happiness and love. I love the colours. If you want to look at the paintings live, you can visit restaurant
Now I will spend the rest of the day with friends and family. The Christmas holiday has started for my kids.
Wishing you a happy day!
All The Best!
