The Magic Of Sudden Change

Hello, all you brilliant people out there. I hope the new week has started well for you and that you can experience the Magic of Mondays. And if all is a muddle then I send positive and healing vibes your way so that you get all the support you need. Last week I wrote about how a new week means new opportunities to create the life we want but I haven’t always been thinking of Monday’s like that.

The Magic Of Mondays

Happy new week everyone! I send you the magic of Mondays. And what might THAT be? It’s a new beginning. Simply! You have gained experience last week which you can use to create a better one this week. Maybe you’ll learn that there is no point in crying over spilt beans.

Or was it a struggle to be heard and to find your identity? Teenage Misery For me, being a teenager meant dysfunctional family communication, high expectations and pressure from society.

The Day The Rains Came Down…

Hello, all you lovely ladies, how are you? I hope you and yours are well and if not that you get all the support you need. It is the first May holiday in the UK, and we have “typical” bank holiday weather: It is raining, and it’s rather windy. However, I am pretty happy about it. It hasn’t rained for over a month which means the soil here in the area is absolutely dry and cracked. It will need a lot of rain to give the plants what they need. It always amazes me how a situation can be seen Read More

Happy Monday To You All

Hello, out there, all you lovely people of the blogosphere. How are you today? I hope you and yours are well. I also hope you have a cup of your favourite beverage (yes you can drink wine out of a mug 😉 ) and allow yourself a moment to rest and gather yourself. I know, this sounds counter-intuitive on a Monday when we are supposed to be revved up for another week of trials and tribulations. But my experience is in the midst of chaos to sit and rest brings about clarity and most of all starts a new week Read More
