Today I want to reveal a little secret to you. Actually, a rather open secret. One of the clues to inner happiness, at least for me. Have you ever thought about the fact that we often measure and evaluate our being and our deeds by the appreciation and acknowledgment of others? One of the rules I keep repeating to myself every day is that I am able to achieve my goals, to fulfill my dreams, to change things. All by myself. That I am strong enough. With my mind, my heart, my hands. We are all unique and strong in our own ways, we just need to want it. And to believe in ourself. And then inner happiness kicks in.
On the other hand, appreciation and acknowledgment by others is something that enhances our lives, too. Ever since I embarked on the adventure called blogging I came to appreciate this fact even more. I consider myself a very lucky and above all happy blogger. I was warmly welcomed by all of you out there, you keep on supporting me and even some companies, PR reps and classic media have noticed me and my little ‘Happy Interior Blog’. I already guest blogged for one of Germany’s biggest lifestyle publication, but this time I am for the very first time featured in a print issue. I am one of the ‘decoration experts’ in the current issue of German interiors magazine ‘Landhaus Living‘ and was asked to give a little decoration tip for the bathroom. I was beyond honoured to be considered an expert and asked to contribute to this issue. Especially since I found myself next to one very successful German blogger, Yvonne of Fräulein Klein blog. Well, to keep things short: Thank you ‘Landhaus Living’ & thank you all for being so supportive!

How wonderful, congratulations on the feature 😉 I’m even more happy to see your there with Yvonne, another wonderful blog friend. And I have to add that I love ladders in bathrooms!
By the way, I loved your latest post on changing patterns. When we moved to Belgium in 2010 I began thinking about all those things that have become a habit, all these routines that become not boring but rather like uneventful. Of course it was a big change to move between countries but I also focused on the little things and mixed them up just a bit and kept on doing so while I lived there. It helped me discover many new things in my new surroundings instead of finding a comfort zone right away.
Have a wonderful long weekend 😉
Well done Igor. Really nice recognition & well deserved! x
