After hearing this song this morning, I found myself thinking...Yes, I tell that to my children virtually everyday, that they can be anything they want to be. that there are no limitations on their dreams and their wishes. That they can achieve anything they want to achieve. That they only have to believe it, to … Continue reading Just Thinking…
I See...Have you ever thought about what you really see? What we see is directly affected by our previous experiences and I am reminded of the quote, "We do not see things as they re, we see things as we are"... Our perception and our perspective go hand in hand and colour our view of … Continue reading I See
Day 4 – For the Love of You Our EveryDay Tool-Kit for Love With any job or task we need a set of tools, whether that be physical tools – tools of the trade, such as those of a plumber, a bricklayer, a dressmaker, a baker, and so on, or the day to day … Continue reading Our Every Day Tool-Kit!
I HAVE... Everything I need, and its all right here within me. That's right, because its all up to me. Now, I'm not talking about material objects here, no, I'm talking about the way I want to live my life, the way I want to feel, and how I want the world around me to … Continue reading I Have…
I love colour, I love to work with colour, and when you think about it colour is everywhere - We see colour in the natural world; the sky, the landscape, the hills and countryside, the sea and the shoreline, the beach, the myriad of beautiful animals that endow our earth, butterflies and birds and so … Continue reading Colour Thoughts
Isn’t it strange how the lives of others can sometimes affect our own? A friend of mine recently had a ‘milestone’ birthday, which got me thinking and reassessing my life in lots of ways, probably because I too will be experiencing one of those ‘milestone’ birthdays, soon! Anyway, there’s no denying it, I’ve recognised lately … Continue reading How I Changed My Feelings About My Body
I woke up early this morning; no, I mean really early this morning, crack of dawn early, still pitch black early. Not really sure why, but I felt like it should have been morning and my mind was racing towards overload. I guess I had more on my mind than I realised, so I got … Continue reading Crack of Dawn
I have chased many dreams throughout my life, some have been purposeful and fun and others, well I suppose you could describe them as more nondescript – Some may say based on illusion, I prefer to think of them as learning footsteps, challenges from within, more seeking the real me or my purpose to being … Continue reading Chasing Your Dreams v Being a Mother
I’ve been decluttering my home and my attic recently, and I never realised how much stuff I had accumulated. It became quite clear that when there had been no obvious real home for each item or the kids had outgrown something still in good condition, yes, you guessed it; I’d just stored it in the … Continue reading Clutter, is it ever plain and simple, and just clutter?
Whilst going through some of my photos, and of course they were more than thought provoking, I came across several that were taken last Summer when I enjoyed a picnic in the woods with my youngest daughter and four of my grandchildren. We had shared a really wonderful afternoon snacking in the shade whilst sitting … Continue reading Priceless Moment…So Simple….It’s Just LOVE
Strange how we often feel the need to take 'stock' of our lives, especially when we begin to feel that we don't have full control, or when we suddenly notice that life is filled with uncomfortable things - the things that we find ourselves noticing and would prefer not to have to deal with. Like when you realise its … Continue reading Being Thankful
Read a beautiful post this morning. Of course it centred on love, this being Valentine's Day, but it centred on so much more, too. I commented that it was a gift, and it certainly felt like a gift, not one packaged with a bow, but a gift to the heart and to thought. The writer … Continue reading Love
Have you ever felt out of sync? You know what I mean, when you have all good intentions brimming within but also coupled with a lingering shadow of self-doubt. Try as you might it just doesn’t let go, rather it holds on like a smouldering ember, a loveless mass that encroaches and gathers momentum. You’ve … Continue reading Have You Ever Felt Out Of Sync?
Earlier today I was asked about Vision Boards and how they are working in my life...and that question prompted much thought; and a personal evaluation of their value and place in my life. I joked that I must be addicted to them, but actually there is a truth in that...I love them, they are such a … Continue reading Vision Boards, Fun or ….
So often we box up 'love' or the thought of 'love' into little packages based on our own intriguing perspectives - Shared exuberances like delicious melting flavours from an expensive chocolate box, or all wrapped up in the warmth and cosiness of winter blankets in front of a cottage fire; sadly for some maybe more like … Continue reading How Do You Box Up ‘LOVE’
