Lessons in letting go

It's in the letting go, that we are available to the beauty of "what can be" and in doing that, we open ourselves to possibility.

8 things I learnt this week

1. On Sunday I had my first fly fishing lesson - it's not as hard as it looks and is loads of fun

2. Having someone cook you a delicious meal is heavenly and makes me feel really special

3. Yoga teaches flexibility and strength. I have less of the latter but I'm amazed at how bendy my body is

4. Running is a great way to release stress and keep you sane

5. There is nothing like a good nights sleep on puffy pillows

6. Life with good friends, and great wine is a wonderful life

7. Lying on the grass staring at the stars in the arms of someone you love is a step closer to heaven

8. I have been thinking a lot about life and what I want, sometimes the best thing to do, is to let things take their natural course

Do you know that you are amazing as you are? You don't need to change anything about yourself, you might just need to change the way you see the world... because then the world you see will change!

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
— Hunter S. Thompson

I want tomorrow...

A taste of Paris

A place for love
For friends
For gardens of flowers
For eating and laughing
and tasting life

A city of romance
For lovers
For delight
For experiences
and magical moments

Whenever something doesn't work out the way you thought it would, instead of thinking that something went wrong, see it as something that went unexpectedly well, but for reasons that are not yet apparent. (tut)

Life Moments

Trust in your journey...

instead of allowing past mistakes to rob you of your confidence, focus instead on those times when you succeeded

It must be love

I don't know how it happens
but in a moment
we realise
we've fallen too deep.


my new photo blog

I was so inspired by my favourite person who suggested I put together a blog of pics I take with my iPhone. We were on holiday together in December, and he's a very talented newbie photographer, and while he was Nikon-ing away, I was iPhone snapping. So, after looking through some of my pics, I decided to put this together!

5 ways to have a great 2011

So here we are - we've arrived - it's 2011!

Every year we seem to say the same thing - how time flies and how fast the year has gone by, yet we've accomplished a lot and experienced so much!

This year I'm looking forward to the magic of opportunities and possibilities that lie ahead. Who knows what the year has in store for me, who I will meet, where I will go, what I will do... but life is for the living - so I welcome all things gorgeous and wonderful experiences and beautiful people into my life... lessons, love, laughter.

Wishing you all things beautiful for the year ahead!

Here are 5 ways to have a great 2011:

1. Make the whole of yourself permissible, lovable, valuable
2. Be present in every situation
3. Be a creator of your own destiny, that which you desire
4. Forget perfection, aim for joy
5. Know yourself, love yourself and express yourself fully in a way that brings you joy

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Have more ideas, love, success and never regret!
