I want to kick off this superb day with a reminder, from my heart to yours…
You – beautiful you – are an incredible treasure, a luminous being of light. You are a gem and your being here makes the world a better place. Your life is unfolding as it’s meant to, and even if it doesn’t quite feel like it down in your bones, where you are right now is absolutely perfect – another thread woven into the intricate tapestry of your life. Mine for joy every day and know that nothing is ever permanent. The magic is in the process. The wisdom is in the journey.
“You are given the gifts of the gods; you create your reality according to your beliefs. Yours is the creative energy that makes your world. There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.” ~ Jane Roberts
Ok, now that you know how AMAZING you are, let’s shimmy on over to this week’s Making Me Happy list.
The past seven days have been devoted to restoring my energy and getting my house in order, and I’ve revelled in the clarity that comes as a result of “tuning in.” Read on for my love list…
Currently crushing on: Morlife Alkalising Greens!
Lately I’ve been feeling like I need a “little boost” energy-wise, and while I’m back on the salad train and enjoying every glorious, mung bean-filled minute, I’ve been adding a spoonful of this green goodness to my water every day to great effect.
Alkalising greens are my alternative to the 3pm coffee run favoured where I work and - hand-on-heart – the new version pictured actually tastes quite good. Lime-y and fresh. Give it a go.
Soul Retreat Saturday
Let me give you a little rundown of my Saturday, a day I affectionately christened Soul Retreat Saturday because man, was it good for the soul.
I started with a Far Infra Red sauna/ Hypoxi double-up (I’ve been doing a couple of sessions like this a week and will do a wrap up soon, but let’s just say, YESYESYES). Next up was the most exquisite Reiki session (my first and certainly not my last) combined with sound bowl therapy – I literally floated out of the room.
The rest of the day can be summarised as: salads, reading, cuddles with the most amazing man in the universe (my husband!), costume shopping – and subsequent giggle-fests – and an early night. These kind of Saturdays are going to become my new normal.
Hip hip hooray, my birthday is creeping ever-closer (can you tell I love a good celebration?)
I’m not going too bananas with decorations – famous last words – but I bought the pinatas above on the weekend, along with some other fun bits and bobs that you’ll see in the post-feista photos!
Marie + Kris Mash Up
I absolutely adore this video of Marie Forleo and Kris Carr whipping up healthy goodies in Kris’ kitchen in upstate New York. These two are just divine and I’m so touched by the depth of their friendship.
Isn’t it lovely to see two powerful women celebrating each other’s brilliance and cheering each other on so generously? Give it up for the sistership! (gosh I love being a woman).
Audiobooks (yep, again!)
Listening to audiobooks as I get ready for work in the morning is a super efficient use of my time and current loves are Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy (a kick in the pants – if you’re prone to procrastination, this one’s a game changer) and Transformational Speaking by Gail Larsen.
Excitement to hang with the lovely Kim this weekend in Byron + Real Living mag + sunshine after the rain + the never-ending awesomery of the Internet + the wig I’ll be wearing to a costume party this weekend (meeoooow!) + raw desserts + more new succulents + incense from the neighbours wafting in through the window (yum) + YOU GUYS! x
What’s making you happy this week? You know the drill – share away sugar!
