This week I appreciate the simple things…and see my vibration move up a notch or two!
Yellow tulips – I adore the shape, and how can one not feel happy around this lutescent loveliness?! They don’t cost much and they look magnificent anywhere in the house. A pleasure to look at – they make me smile and appreciate the availability of such beautiful blooms.
Orange nails – I sense a colour-theme going on here! And why not?! When the sky is grey or my entire running outfit is a mélange of white and grey (!) that POP of orange can do wonders for the outfit and the mood! I dunno, it just makes me feel super snazzy when I take my post-run sweaty self, complete with tied up bed-hair, out for my morning fuel
Kitchen Skincare – I am on the experimenting train again! I know, I can’t help myself – just can’t sit still! hahaha. I was recently reading an article about the simplicity and goodness of natural skincare, and was so happy my train veered onto this track! I had been thinking about this (again!), so it turned out to be a well-timed catalyst! It’s lovely to know wise women who also love to share their knowledge – I am super grateful for the Sarah Wilsons and Maria Hannafords of the world – you gals rock!
Reading – my love of reading stems from another very wise woman aka my mom! When I was little, she read out loud to me – with much inflexion and facial expression to boot! And I guess it all started there! I love to read out loud too, and with feeling (actress!! lol) But most of all I love to read…pretty much EVERYTHING, and pretty much ANYWHERE too. I cannot go anywhere without a wee something onto which I can cast my eyes and mind, should a reading opp’ arise! Language is marvellous, & the knowledge even more so…well, for me anyway!
My work – It has been hard yakka, but it has also been immensely satisfying. As you too may attest, b.u.s.i.n.e.s.s is not for the faint-hearted! There have been times (many!) when my “faint” wanted to get.it.on, but my “heart” point-blank refused! I love my heart – she’s a wise cookie. Because it is precisely those moments, days, months….years(!) – when you seriously want to throw in that big ole wet towel – that steel you, teach you and allow you to soar. Thank you Share Your Victory™ - you continue to teach me as only a great teacher can!
Sunrisin’ - watching the sun come up every day this week – and last – has been nothing short of life-affirming. It’s like a huuuge hit of VitaminG (that’s Goodness y’all!) for the soul. It’s magical, available and free!
