Good morning

The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude.
You can make every day a good one.

Shot in southern Italy, on a early autumn morning, after we spent the night sleeping in our car underneath the olive trees – to me the most beautiful trees in the world.

Orange

“The color psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit. In fact orange is so optimistic and uplifting that we should all find ways to use it in our everyday life, even if it is just an orange colored pen that we use.

Orange brings spontaneity and a positive outlook on life and is a great color to use during tough economic times, keeping us motivated and helping us to look on the bright side of life.”

Let orange cheer up your monday!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”

Indian Women

The most beautiful thing a woman can wear is confidence.

It’s international woman’s day today.
I watched the heavy discussed BBC documentary “India’s daughter” yesterday and I am once again shocked by the viewpoints of certain Indian men about woman. We have the year 2015 and they still point out that a girl is more responsible for rape than a boy! It makes me dedicate todays post to India’s wonderful woman.

“Society makes you feel cheap. I chose not to feel like a victim. I am not a victim. I am a survivor. I speak about it with a lot of pride, because I am proud of what I have become today. I have not done a mistake. I don’t want my face to be blurred. I am not to be ashamed for. The guys that have done it should be hiding their faces and they should be blurring their faces.”
Woman rights activist Sunitha Krishnan

I wish for all the Indian woman that things change, that their voices are heard and that confidencen is given to each and every little girl born in this country.
