I came to a realisation today. I am centred. My world is calm. I am happy, grateful and content. I do not need to get stressed about other peoples dramas anymore. So peaceful. Sending out love and light to all.
Here I am, sitting in front of my computer late at night reminiscing. So much has happened over the last year, it is hard to believe it is nearly over. I am in my forties and I have enough life experience under my belt to last three life times. Two of the most important things that I have learned is that love is at the centre of everything that I do, otherwise why am I here? And the other is that love is everything, in other words I have learned not to hold onto anger and resentment. I cannot control what other people think or do. That is something they have to live with. I have learned to let it go. It is not my burden to carry.
You would not believe how much lighter this has made me feel. My family is everything to me and life is too short for the negative. As you get older you realise that you can choose to be surrounded by positive people who lift you up and kick to the kerb those that bring you down. Even if that means family members. It took me a long time to come to this realisation.
No more emotional blackmail, no more manipulation, no more pain. No more stressing about things I have no control over. Yes to focusing on the positive and seeing the old me come back. The real me. The person who is positive, loving, happy and open to life and new experiences. My children are so happy to see the old me again. The one who laughs and smiles often.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Sending love, light and healing to whoever needs it tonight. Share it around I say. The world needs more of that.
What is it with people today? I will tell you that they have had enough. Enough already. All around the world we are seeing them rise up in large numbers peacefully protesting about the injustices inflicted upon them by those in power. Never before have we seen such a mind shift in such a way. To effect change we have to be heard and we simply cannot be ignored in large numbers. They can not kill us all and they simply cannot make us disappear in such large numbers. We are not asking, we are demanding a change that is warranted. We all deserve to live in peace. We all deserve to have basic human rights to survive and thrive as loving human beings. It is not about the privileged few. It is not about the money. It is simple human connection. Something that seems to be lost in this day and age. We are not going away. Take heed, those in power; your time has come. Flow with the tide of change or risk being swept away with the trash.
I dare you to ignore your mobile phones for one whole day and in that time reach out and connect with someone close to you and then reach out to a stranger. Just think how much can be achieved with these small acts. Take a stand. Do not let your life be controlled by a gadget. Everyone is so busy surviving that they are missing it. I am so very grateful for my life, even with all the hardship.
Peace, love and light to all.
Aaaaah the joy of realising that the universe, god, angels, spirit guides or whoever you pray to, have just manifested the outcome you were waiting for. Yes you do have to practice mindfulness and actually get up off your chair and do something about it. But isn’t it great when things just fall into place effortlessly. That is when you know you are on the right path. I have had one of those aha moments today. I am practicing gratefulness as I know that life is short and I want to make the most of my time here. I want to learn and grow and shine that inner light everywhere. Let us be blinded by it. Bathe in that glow.
Love and Light
I am learning………
That it is ok to say No!
I am not an island, I do not have to be strong all the time
I can ask for help
It is ok to ensure that I get a good night’s sleep
I am entitled to time on my own
I can choose to be happy
That worrying solves nothing
That love should be at the root of everything
To be grateful for everything that I have
Time to move on.
My baby turned two this month and he is a gorgeous child (hey I am his mother), and all that comes with a two year old has now emerged. That does sound ominous. He is now insisting that he does everything on his own and has no problem saying the word “No”. So he gets food and drink everywhere and I mean absolutely everywhere.
He is climbing, well everything. And with that comes the inevitable falling over. I must admit he hardly ever cries, he just keeps getting up and soldiering on. He has a wonderful personality and is always on the move. He certainly knows how to tire people out.
Today he is unwell, a high fever set in yesterday and he has thrown up a few times since then. So apart from being ‘nurse mummy’ and giving lots of kisses and cuddles, I am also administering medicine, lots of water and on clean up yuck duty. 🙂
I believe it is due to teething. His back molars are coming in and this can be quite painful at times. He may also have a slight cold. It is amazing how young children can be ill one moment and recover so quickly the next. This is my third child and so I am not panicking about the high temperature, unless it gets out of hand. He is handling things quite well and is still smiling.
He brings me no end of happiness and joy. I love the role of being a mother. However, I know that does not define me. It is only a part of who I am. An extremely important and loving part of me. It does tend to take over and I then have to put other areas of my life on hold. I do not regret this as children grow up so fast. I stayed home from work today to care for him. My family is my priority and keeping a job to take care of him is a priority also. So it is difficult at times to juggle all of it. My life is in a constant state of change, one moment of experience moves into another and I have to roll with it. So being flexible is a great tool to have. Patience is a virtue. So they say.
I want my children to know that they are loved and have a safe place to call home. I am grateful that I can provide that. I am so grateful that we are all healthy, even if we get ill and that we have food on the table and a roof over our heads. It is more than many people get to see.
Sending out love, light and healing to you all. Especially sending out loving thoughts to those in need right now.

A thought struck me today – don’t you just love the English language. It didn’t actually strike me, but it certainly felt like it. Everything is temporary, everything is just borrowed. All we have is the here and now.
I make a point of not getting attached to material things. I learned that lesson when I was young. One night our family went out for New Year’s Eve and when we got home we found that our home had been ransacked. They not only robbed us but drank our alcohol, and touched everything in the house. They even went through my underwear drawer. It was a violation of my privacy and they took anything of value that we had at the time. It was a lesson learned. You can replace jewellery, but you cannot replace a loved one.
You cannot replace the relationships that you build up over a lifetime. Those memories are to be treasured when you are alive on this planet. We cannot take any material item with us, so what is the point of coveting them when you are here. Material items do not make you happy.
They say time is fleeting. Everyone thinks that they have all the time in world to fix things that aren’t right within their lives. But that is just a fallacy. Life is short. It is but a blip on the radar. Do you want your life to be lived or do you just wish to exist and wait for the inevitable? For in the end we all pass on. I want my children to know that they are loved. I want those close to me to know that my time on earth was not wasted. I want to make a difference. I want to touch people’s lives in a positive way. When the end is near, I do not want to look back on my life with regret. I want to be surrounded by those people that I have connected with. That connection is what is important. WE are all connected. Material things can never replace that. Love is everything.
