What is your favorite quote and why?

Okay so… The following is something that has been said to me a couple years ago. Must have been 2016 or 2017. It stayed with me. The language is crude, but if you read between the lines, you may understand why this is one of my favourite quotes. Now, mind you, this is not a quote by AnaΓ―s Nin or Dylan Thomas or Jim Morrison or a stoic poet… No, this is a no-name. I shared it before and caught some flak for it… Ah well… Here goes:

As long as there is cum in my balls and a mind in my brain, I will never forget you.

To be honest, I like this. And because it is real, I am probably not interested if anyone thinks that I deserve more or better or…

What is your favorite photo you’ve ever taken?

Ever? Like, ever ever?! Impossible.

Every pic I take of my kids is a favourite! But, here is the favourite I took in the last 6 months:

Or is it this?

Maybe even this?

(there is no filter on this one…)

In fact, it is this:

An almost empty glass of wine put on the selfie lense of my phone.

I could have chosen one with people on it, but no.



Pain of Salvation – meaningless (give this one a chance, don’t turn off after one minute)


There is not much on my Instagram account, but I seem to be looking for a way to get somewhere. Or maybe, I am appreciating my journey and the road I am traveling? Either way, there are too many photos of streets and roads.

Feel free to follow me there… I have moments when I share a lot and others when I delete more. As so often, it used to be about music, there were some LP (vinyl) pics, but not many anymore. There are not too many pics of me… hehe, I do delete most of the pics of myself, because I don’t like to see myself all the time, am I just revealing again that I am weirder than anticipated?

Ah well… *hugs*

Does this qualify as Bloganuary #19? Write about something mysterious? I will pretend it does. I mean, it sounds vain and conceited when I say it myself, but countless times people called me mysterious… I am anything but, but maybe others see things in me that I don’t.

What book is next on your reading list?

Funny that this question comes up today. Yesterday, someone held a monologue for me, explaining why I absolutely have to read Harry Potter, mainly books 5-7. And that’s why they are next on my list.

I have to say, I am not a fantasy fan. But that person is and honestly the passion with which the monologue was delivered left me quite curious. There you have it. Harry Potter is next on my reading list. And maybe I’ll even read it. Haha.

What is a superpower you’d love to have?

Ah… I thought about this one before and the only answer I ever had was: teleportation.

Yup… There are people all around the world that I would like to meet, but traveling is expensive and I am not the biggest fan of planes either. Yes, teleportation would be rather awesome.

Beam me up!

Come to think about it. How about invisible teleportation? Hmmm

That song though, right? HIM – join me (in death). I only ever share that song on January 17th.

What is a cause you’re passionate about and why?

I am quite passionate about second chances. This applies in every area of life. Maybe it comes with my job, or maybe it is because I am an Aquarius and we are said to be humanitarians.

Our society is quick to cast people out. Instead of helping them (which is often cheaper in the long run) they are rejected and abandoned. A vicious circle begins and without help or compassion from others, it is hard to get back on one’s feet.

Everyone deserves a second chance, and a third and a fourth too.

If I can help, I do. It’s not always good for me, sometimes I give so much that I become empty and burnt out – but it is always worth it.

So yeah, I am passionate about being compassionate, gentle, kind, nonjudgmental, about helping, offering support, and giving as many chances as are needed.


And music… Who would have guessed?

What is a life lesson you feel everyone can benefit from learning?

Is it a life lesson, really?

Be kind. Everyone is struggling from time to time in their own way.


Don’t live with regrets. Every choice you made and every decision you took is the right one at that precise moment. Sometimes the choice we have is between bad and worse, but it is there. And even the smallest things can make a big change. Don’t live with regrets. They make you miserable, because in the end, the things we regret are things we cannot change anymore.

Still not enough?

Even the worst parts of our lives taught us something and made us move forward.

Enough Cathy-wisdom for an early Saturday morning.

Write about a challenge you faced and overcame.

I actually wanted to skip this one. Over the years, I wrote so much about myself and my struggles and challenges that I am tired of the topic. And you are probably too. I don’t know. Does it matter? I mean, it’s depressing and not uplifting.

There was a time when I wrote all this stuff to get a reaction. I wanted people to care and maybe I even wanted some pity or praise. I did not do it on purpose, but in hindsight, even if I didn’t do it consciously, I did it.

My life has been paved with challenges. From being emotionally and mentally abused as a child, to depression and ADHD as an adult, I faced many challenges.

Often, every new day is a challenge. Getting up. Taking a shower. Going to work. Doing laundry. Preparing dinner. Talking. Sleeping. Breathing. Existing. Being. Those things are challenging every day. And I overcome them almost every day too. Almost.

But you know what? Many people feel that way. There is never anything new under this sun. And even though emotions might be new to us, they have been felt by other people before.

None of us is special. Every one of us is special. None of us is unique. Every one of us is unique.

In the end, it doesn’t matter how big or small the challenges are that you are dealing with; the only thing that matters is that you face them, and try your best to come out on the other side with as least damage as possible.

Be kind

Be gentle.

What does your ideal day look like?

Sleeping in

Chatting with my favourite people (on and offline)

Some TV

A long bath with lots of bubbles

Great dinner without or without alcoholic beverages

More chats

Writing some, maybe (no pressure)

No crippling thoughts or doubts

And lots and lots of music.

What emoji(s) do you like to use?

πŸ’œβœ¨ (always together)


😘❀️ (most often together)

These are the emojis I use most.

But really? That’s not the most inspiring prompt… At least, it did not spark much creativity in me.

Be well

Be kind with yourself
