Love Everything about Our Life

To love everything about our life might sound a bit far fetched if things are not going our way; we are not looking the way we wish nor befriending the people that gives us status and the list goes on.

Yet, by loving everything about our life we do look the way we want and we do have the friends that support in the best way they know how to. It may sound corny, but it works. Choosing to love puts us into an elevated space where likes and dislikes fade into to background. 

Life is too short to not to embrace and work with how we look, who we are and the people around us.

Life can be full of blessings when we start noticing the many miracles and gifts that surrounds. Today I experienced a beautiful wild garden

It wasn't particularly sunny, initially I didn't feel like going out and enjoying the day but I decided to be thankful for the day anyway. As I was walking along enjoying the beauty I realised that there is a whole eco system to respect and we need the clouds and the light (and heavy) rain to keep this island green. 

Loving something doesn't initially means liking something but when we choose to love we might discover something to like.

Earth Day

Every morning I tend to make it part of my ritual to touch the earth as I make a few stretches at the exercise units down the seafront 5 minutes cycle from home. I send good wishes into the atmosphere that today we will work hand in hand with the earth as the friend and magnificent supporter it is to our health and well-being.

There is no end to the healing properties of nature both physically and emotionally. By observing and experiencing nature we realise that there is a time for everything and that the natural process of transformation takes place over time rather than by command or instant magic.

What wonderful Easter we had this year where the sudden heat has elevated our enjoyment with bird songs, apple blossoms and happy animals around our fields. Bird song in particular connects to the focusing part of our brains that keeps us alert and energised.
