The Elephant ride

Good old Facebook ‘on this day’ brought up this picture. I was surprised to see it as I actually thought I had deleted it. Nevertheless it encouraged a reflection and I’m overdue a blog post. When I look at this picture, I am not the great animal lover & empath I am today. I amContinue reading “The Elephant ride”

Covid-19; A Letter From an Angry Mother

Presence; living in the moment

I recently finished reading ‘The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle and this has encouraged me to set a New Year’s resolution to live in the present moment (this is a lot harder than it sounds). If you are interested in personal and spiritual development, I would highly recommend this book however I will forewarnContinue reading “Presence; living in the moment”

Kindness at Christmas

I thought it fitting to write about kindness at Christmas as it is the season of giving. I think kindness is the most admirable quality in a person, though it is often misunderstood as a weakness; I remember a senior colleague of mine told me that my kindness will be thrown back in my face,Continue reading “Kindness at Christmas”

The Power of the Right Relationship

A friend of mine recently shared a very inspiring post about the power of self-love, she had spent years battling with who she was and changing this to please the people she was spending time with; she wrote that it was only when she made friends with herself and started to put herself first thatContinue reading “The Power of the Right Relationship”
