Refuge From The Chaos

It’s the year of the Wood Sheep

I’ve’ read many meanings and it seems to boil down to – A year to take refuge from the chaos that numbs us. It’s a time to come to our senses. Sheep appear quite mild but in actuality are toughies. They survive harsh weather, lack of food, the embarrassment of a bad haircut yet stay calm and focused.

I imagine this is what they are singing So take a bring and do a little new year dance

Dancing With Words

How we sometimes feel when writing or reading a book. A choreographer who is dyslexic expresses his experience. A truly amazing performance.

Unwrap Nature’s Gift

It’s a hectic time of year where we all get wrapped up in the wrong things. We can forget to leave space for the magic.

Watching this video may help put things in perspective.

We Are All Creators

We are all creators of the world around us. However we choose to do it. We don’t have to create a masterpiece to matter. A small thing like creating a smile for someone who needs one is enough.

An inspiring video that reminds us how important the strength of women can be

Think You Can And You Will

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.“ – Mahatma Gandhi

Could it be that Gandhi read The Little Engine that could ? it was the first self help book I ever read. I was 4 years old and it formed how I look at life. It had a strong female who thought she could and she did. It’s been around for 84 years and still is a top selling picture book. If you have not read it, I’ve posted the video of the book below. There’s also a catchy tune at the end. It can put a skip in your day

Rest and Digest

Rest – stop working in order to recover strength, also place for support

Digest – absorb into the mind

We tend to face challenges in our life by pushing and bulldozing, but some times the best solution is to sit down, rest and digest.

We have become accustomed to instant everything, from soup to success.  If we don’t see results instantly we feel  a failure. You don’t plant flower seeds on Tuesday and expect flowers on Wednesday.  A bad haircut can seem to last forever, but without noticing, one day its grown out.

When exhausted from all the pushing and getting nowhere, sometimes we need to stop, breathe, and do a little dance.

Trust

Life is working in your favour.

“Our heads are round so our thoughts can change direction”
Francis Picabia 

 

As my favourite person Sark says “Restore and explore,fill yourself with laughter,take a different route. Re- energize yourself, Recover and discover.

Here’s a fun video to help re-energize yourself and fly around the room with.

Stop and Smile

Sometimes we just need to stop, and smile.
It can make all the difference
Here’s a couple of videos that might help.
