Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
It seems we're so time poor these days, but where does it all go? Our lives are simpler than they've been before, no more standing at the river washing clothes, or drying them through a mangle.
We don't have to walk to the Post Office to deliver a letter, we can write it and send it instantly, with a whoosh (that may just be my Mac - I can't seem to find where to turn the whoosh off but never mind, it makes me smile).
We can get anything we want without having to trail around shop after shop, and yet we're so often so busy.
And that can be me too, there's no judgement here. I'm inviting you to find some space, for you. To stop a moment, and just be. Did you notice a panic or a peace in that moment after my invitation? I'm curious, sometimes I'll experience both, though not at the same time.
"Curiousity", said my PCW (Provocative Change Works) teacher, on Saturday, "is the opposite to anxiety". I'm still pondering over that and, well, am curious.
I'm currently listening to Rangan Chatterjee's Happy Mind, Happy Life, and really enjoying it. I recommend!
I was curious for a while, why don't I just recommend everyone reads this book instead of talking about my Find Your Happy course that starts next month? And then I realised how often I will read something with life changing potential, then carry on doing my life. Of course many things do change me, but how many do I take the time to implement? Usually the ones where I have some accountability or it's a group thing.
Which made me recognise the value in what I'm offering. To show up for 4 weeks, to be present for 6 hours of our month, to discuss, experience, experiment, and be accountable to try things out between sessions. For me, that's much more likely to help me implement positive change than reading a book.
Happy for me isn't always skipping down the street with joy, don't get me wrong, it can be, but I'm also enjoying a deeper, calmer, more contented space. I'm finding that space more and more and am looking forward to sharing exercises, insights, research and practical tips on my Find Your Happy course.
See you there :)
