Reflections of the 30 day challenge

For the month of November, I went without TV, unnecessary human contact and focussing on what I want in my life.  Well, that’s a pretty big list. The aim was to raise my vibration, to feel even better than I already did. In the most part, the no TV wasn’t too much of a problem. When … Continue reading Reflections of the 30 day challenge

Gratitude is more than 5 a day

Gratitude is more than your 5 a day

  Surely, there’s not much more to gratitude than writing five things, or even 3,  you are grateful for each day. That seems to be the standard advice and activity on the net.

Savouring the first cup of coffee of the day

I love the smell of just poured coffee. I love the froth on top even though it’s black. I love how it sits patiently waiting for me to take the first sip.

Tuning in better

My journey and tuning in better

It is funny how we somehow disassociate our journey from what we are meant to do in this life. I’ve spent the past four years living the aging without limits model.

Reflections of life, loss and courage

Standing here, now in my 60s, I can see a theme of losses and grief ebbing and flowing through my life. Not sure whether I’ve more or less, that doesn’t matter.
