Dream with open eyes

Some days I'm still in awe about my  life. No, I do not want to brag or anything, but with all the bad stuff behind me I try to make the most of each day.
My husband worked for three years on his dream plane. He built it from a kit that he imported from the US. There is even some of my work in the plane - I helped with the riveting - Yes we stood by each other and we helped where we could. He did this project in the evenings and weekends. And when he finished in September of 2012 it was Awesome.
 Although I do not go with flying as often as I would have liked to, I still get my turn and it is GREAT- that is why I made the video's - I have more of these but I think this one is fine for now. Oh and the reason I do not go with as much - is because my son is getting first option to go with whenever Niel goes flying. He says it because he will be leaving home the end of this year as he is finishing high school.

Ps. My book is with reviewers and I will soon be able to tell when it will be available!

How to Deal with Stress and improve your mood



 The cover of my book soon to be released



© 2013, Hanli Terblanche

In the book I discuss some important ways that I've used to heal and feel better and GOOD about myself:

Stress is experiences by everybody. I can be productive or destructive

When you experience stress, breathe easily and visualize calm. 

Be assertive instead of aggressive. 

 Voice your feelings, opinions, or beliefs instead of becoming angry, defensive, or passive. 

Smile a lot. When You are happy you smile, but just by smiling, it can make you feel relaxed and happy too

Hallo. I'm Awesome

AND you are AWESOME TOO if you found my blog

This is  my newest blog. I am in an Awesome mood, the reason being that I finished my book last week. However finished means that it is only the story that is done, now it is time for editing, proofing and designing a cover. I want to do the cover myself. I had experience designing ads for newspapers and I think my experience  as an artist and as the person that  wrote the book  makes me the right person for the job!


I love my rock garden

I spent the last three months getting so much inspirations from a lot of people online especially the TC-group.  I want to have somewhere to share my great ideas and also brain inspiration. Maybe this will end up being my WRITERS BLOG

I also just did a 21-day meditation challenge ( the Oprah & Deepak Meditation) and that was AWESOME. I will try and tell a little more about how I started to meditate and how it helped me heal

The bipolar disorder is always somewhere nearby and I have to keep fighting the monster because sometimes it starts grinding at me again. For the past three years. I've kept the worst away by focusing on good things and keeping busy. I've educated myself and I will share some of my insights on that too

I started walking , with my pets every day and I'll be sharing a few of those video's -

What is is that made me Awesome- The moment I eventually got it into my head, that I create my own life by my thoughts. Think you are awesome and you will be.More on the book to follow soon
