Impossible Things

Alice laughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said. ‘One can’t believe impossible things’.‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast’. ― Lewis Carroll I’ve had a bit of time… Continue reading Impossible Things

Soothing Spring

“I don’t fix problems, I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.” Louise Hay Spring is coming. I can see the light! The sun shines, the rain showers and the flower fragrants.

Freedom = Security

“Happiness has many roots, but none more important than security”. E.R.

Imperfect

I’ve been back into my long walks recently and 11 hours of listening to Wayne Dyer’s Ultimate Library on Audible has kept me company for much of it (along with T. Swizzle’s “Lover” obvs.). This statement struck me and has been on replay in my mind ever since… “My time, my wine, my spirit, my… Continue reading Imperfect

Toxic Positivity

I like to see myself as a shiny, happy person laughing. But have I become too much of a Pollyanna? There is a lot of ‘look on the bright side’ and ‘good vibes only’-ness going around.
