Maak er een mooie dag

Maak er een mooie dag is something that Dutch and Flemish people say, usually for someone’s birthday. It means make it a beautiful day. This is an interesting phrase that we don’t have in English, yes we say have a good day, but this means something a little different. It means make the day more beautiful – inspiring, something of sheer pleasure. I liked this phrase as soon as I heard it and try to apply it to my everyday life, not just on my birthday.

Here are five things that make my days better:

1) Wes Anderson –  THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL trailer

2) LCD Soundsystem – Dance Yourself Clean

3) Daydreaming about Pink Lake in Western Australia
