Passions Speak

I believe passion truly speaks through our pulses. It beckons us towards our purpose in life, our highest good.

We often forget how precious each and every moment is. My Sunday nights are usually spent reflecting, introspecting, and realigning to my visions and values. I spend my time thinking about what’s most important and plan my upcoming week doing and investing in those ‘things’.

What gets me so excited is when I think about opportunities, when I think about possibilities and what it would feel like to embrace new ones to help realise my dreams. You see, life can change in any moment. I like to remind myself how in a single moment, everything around me can change, my entire life can be changed forever. I’ve experienced this! Have you?

Life is not all about doom and gloom. There’s so much to celebrate! But it’s also important to stay grounded and recognise that things like natural disasters, illness, accidents, negative circumstances and life in itself can just “happen”. And you have no choice but to roll with it!

Having this foresight helps to keep me grounded! Knowing how vital and precious this moment truly is. This moment. Right now! And when I become present to this moment, everything around me feels alive! I become more passionate about my visions, my dreams, my feelings and life itself. Passion truly starts to speak through my pulses! It’s the shivers, the goosebumps and the hair raisers that physically remind me of the magical and sacred space that we live in. These experiences marry up the physical with the ethereal for me. This feeling is truly beyond the regions of this earth!

Now… what passions will you pursue this week? What pulses will push you to take the next step in investing in your dreams? Go on! Grab every opportunity and embrace change as that is the only constant in life. Keep evolving and watch yourself blossom!

Stay blessed.

Our Love

I like to keep things simple at the best and worst of times. It is the little things that really matter the most. I’ve learned that life has its own plans, timing and way of ‘happening’. Sometimes this perspective forces me to take the backseat and allow things to happen in its own time and place and in the universe’s terms, not mine.

There is only so much we can control in life. Sometimes we have to let go and let love take over. And it is true that it is hard to fully let go. We love having things and situations to happen in our own way and time. We expect so much out of life and people and situations. Expectations can also drive us mad. Expectations can be harmful to our health and stress levels.

So it’s time to stop. It’s time to breathe. It’s time to let go. It’s time to let love.

Love yourself most importantly. Love the people you treasure the most in your life. Love your job(s) and passions. Love your dreams and work on them, one step at a time even. Love the uncertainty of life and what blessings it may gift to you. Love your solitude and the wisdom that it brings.    

Our love can change the world. We are all just walking each other home.

Stay blessed.

The ‘C’ Word

Relax. It’s not what you’re thinking. Read on to feed your own curiosity.

When I was younger I wanted to be older and be an expert at ‘adulting’. And now that I’m older and somewhat wiser (I hope?), I sometimes miss the good old days, the days when nothing really mattered and my heart roamed free of responsibilities and the uncertainty of life.

What I know now is that time flies. It seriously feels like it moves faster than the speed of light.

Looking back in time and reflecting on both the good times and the bad times, the highs and lows, the peaks and troughs, I now realise that I’ve wasted so much time.

I’ve wasted so much time not being fully present in the moments that mattered. I’ve wasted so much time not loving enough. I’ve wasted so much time saying no to opportunities due to my own fears and lack of belief. I’ve wasted so much time questioning rather than accepting and understanding. I’ve wasted so much time feeling like I’m not enough or inadequate. I’ve wasted so much time not being open to endless possibilities and harnessing my power to create. I’ve wasted so much time. And now I can’t get it all back. That’s the sad reality.

I’m not quite sure whether this blog post is going to go anywhere, but I’ll keep writing, trust the process and see what presents itself.

Sometimes we want to see and focus too much on the ‘ending’, the results or the fruits of our labour rather than realigning ourselves with the present moment and the journey itself. It sounds cliched and I write about ‘the now’ frequently but no matter how many times we are reminded of this, we still constantly forget. It’s so easy to get caught up on the results and outcomes, and the truth is the future is not easy to quantify. This is my learning for today. The decisions we make based on the assumptions, beliefs and stories we tell ourselves about our past, present and future dictate what we do on a daily basis, and from moment to moment. The power to choose and live consciously is also heavily influenced by what most people refer to as our ‘self-talk’. And let’s be honest. Our self-talk is not always positive or nurturing is it?

When I write, I always write short snippets of content. I rarely ever write long posts, and to be honest it is simply because I don’t have a long attention span and I find that I digest information more easily when it is fed to me in small doses. And I know this might sound selfish, but I’m not writing this for you or the blogging community. I only write for myself. Everything we do no matter how selfless, compassionate or service-related it is, we do for the benefit of ourselves. Don’t you think that’s true? We do these things because it makes us feel good. And with that in mind, we evolve.

Anyhow, I digress. Going back to speaking of waste. Yes, I’ve wasted a considerable amount of time in my past. So what’s next? What now? Well, given that there’s no going back, and only moving forward and upwards, I am making a commitment. Yikesss! The ‘C’ word gives me the spooks and bouts of anxiety. But I truly am feeling these words so I will continue to write.

I commit to living in the moment. I commit to newness. I commit to learning. I commit to love. I commit to bravery. I commit to myself. I commit to commitment. And the discipline that comes with it!

I think that’s the end. I believe that’s all I have to say. My vessel is empty (for now). My words are complete.

Stay blessed.

New Beginnings. Welcoming 2019!

A season of newness. A reason to start living consciously, again.

Adventures are the best way to learn and create new memories. Here’s to many more new adventures in 2019 and an abundance of love, light, learning and happiness to boot. Wear courage and bravery, carry strength and perseverance, breathe in new life and restore love in empty places, spaces and with the people you care about the most. Hold your priceless treasures close to your heart, for it is moments and memories that will always be truly yours to keep, and everything else is temporary.

2018 taught me so much. It taught me about my own faith and beliefs, it taught me about pain and hurt, it taught me about people and their intentions, it taught me about being brave and most of all it continued to strengthen my relationship with love. I am forever grateful for all the lessons. And I am humbled by all that life has to offer, as life itself is my greatest teacher.

When I write, I feel aligned with the universe. I sometimes lose my sense of self and my fingers just keep typing away. That’s when I feel most in tune with myself and the source. This is why I write. This is why I’ll continue to share what I learn. Because it keeps me connected. It makes me feel alive. It’s all about my alignment.

What is it that keeps you aligned? Will you do more of whatever that is in 2019? Remember to put yourself first. Instead of making just New Years resolutions that may be temporary, why not think about what’s most important to you. And prioritise that.

May the divine light fill your souls and may your hearts always be full. That’s my New Year’s wish for you! Here’s a picture of my darling boy, Chai and I – stealing kisses since 2015 and counting. It’s the little things.

Happy new year beautiful people! Stay blessed.

Just Give It A Go

There’s so much in life that we don’t know about. And we don’t know about what we don’t know about. That’s right. Read that sentence again if you didn’t digest it the first time.

Sometimes we just have to live and learn. So just give it a go, I say.

What inspired me to write this post? Well… just what I’m experiencing at this point in time of my life. As we get older and continue to do our laps around the sun, we become more and more set in our ways. Three decades for me personally have proven to get me comfortable in my own skin, in my own ways and developing my own patterns of thinking and being.

It’s time to break this cycle. It’s time to strive towards excellence. It’s time to open our hearts and minds to something new. Today. And everyday. Every single day is different. Every single day is a fresh start. A fresh start to learn something. To try something new. Just give it a go, otherwise you’ll never know!

There are so many things that stop us from giving something new a go. More than just our comfort zones, there’s fear, there’s resistance to change, there’s lack of faith and belief, there’s lack of resources and information, there is a never ending list of reasons. And think about it… you are never truly ready to do anything anyway. Sometimes we have to look past all of this and just focus on giving it a go! Whatever that ‘it’ may be.

So… tell me! What’s stopping you from achieving or trying something new today? Are you ready to just give it a go?

We are all mortal beings. Life doesn’t last forever. Today is the perfect time. Don’t wait to do another lap around the sun before you make your move! The power is in the now.

Stay blessed.
