Impatience, frustration, discontent, sorrow; we’ve all experienced such crushing emotions to some degree or another. As much as we’d like to deny their existence, it serves us not to stuff down our feelings, to pretend they don’t exist. When we acknowledge our discomforts and allow them to move through us, we honour our emotions in ways that can inspire change. The key is to avoid remaining stuck in the feeling of discomfort for too long.
Without life’s contrasts and adversities, we could never come to know what our true desires are, nor would we appreciate them when they arrive. The best way to become aligned with our desired results is through deep appreciation and gratitude. Like attracts like. If you wish to have more things to be grateful for – be grateful for the blessings you already have. Smile, and be ready to receive what is coming to you with an open and grateful heart.
In love & light,
As some of you may know, I was recently on a mission to obtain votes to attend the Hay House Sydney Writers Workshop event. Whilst I didn’t quite receive enough, one entrant managed to obtain 750 votes, and I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the very worthy winner! You rock lady!
I knew it would be a big effort with my small, (yet growing) following. And whilst some may be left feeling despondent, I can’t help but smile and say ‘Thank you!’
- I faced my fears and uploaded my first ever video to social media platforms promoting my book and message. This is a huge step for me. I feel much more comfortable communicating in the written form. Despite cringing at my attempts, I did it. Yey!
- My wish was to spread more love and connection, and I received nothing but that in response to my video. Thanks to friends sharing and spreading the word, I have formed beautiful new connections across my writing platforms.
- My faith in a loving Universe was proven. I was both amazed and humbled by the love and support offered from friends and strangers alike. I am still so very grateful for each and every one of you who took the time to vote.
I believe in Divine timing. The stars may not have aligned this time, but I have every faith that something wonderful is waiting just around the corner. And the same goes for you!
Here’s to facing our fears, following our dreams and counting our blessings! Life is far too magical and wonderful to be anything but grateful.
In love & light,
As I sit here with gratitude overflowing, I couldn’t agree more with Katharine Graham’s statement. Today, I taught eighty-one kindergartens how to meditate and do yoga. Their smiling, peaceful faces were a picture of innocence and love. Afterwards, we silly danced to the Beach Boys Surfin USA as we played and laughed and giggled. As the children left, I was gifted with spontaneous hugs and ‘thank you’s’ for teaching them mindfulness. But the truth is, each day they are the ones teaching me. When in the company of children, how can we be anything but in the moment? And this is my daily work. I am so blessed and thankful to love what I do. How can anything else be more fun?
It wasn’t always this way. For a long time I was unfulfilled with my work. I felt it lacked purpose and meaning. But there is a quote by Kahlil Gibran which reminds us that it’s not necessarily what we do, but how we do it.
Work is love made visible.
– Kahlil Gibran
Although it certainly helps, we needn’t love what we do. But we do need to do it with love. When we work from a place of love, whatever our work may be, we breathe life into our work. Which in turn breathes life and meaning into what we do. When we operate from a place of grace and gratitude, we attract more abundance into our lives. Doors begin to open where before, there appeared to be none.
So today, have fun. Whether you are cooking, eating, gardening, cleaning, working, living, loving, laughing! – make each moment matter, and do it with love. Because ‘to love what you do and feel that it matters – how could anything else be more fun?’
In love and light,
