“People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” ~ Thomas Sowell Once upon a time, I was a member of the corporate world. My meetings lasted hours and sometimes days. I wore a suit. I was often bored, or frustrated. Every hour a meeting dragged on made me feel a little more dead inside. […]
“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.” ~ Steve Maraboli Hello, Lovelies!

“Don’t you simply love going to bed. To curl up warmly in a nice warm bed, in the lovely darkness. That is so restful and then gradually drift away into sleep…”
~ C.S. Lewis
Exploration is about future vision – that vision you can create for yourself of the life you want to have, the life that inspires or nurtures or fulfills you better than the life you are living right now. It’s about the spirit of possibility and of experiencing life rather than simply existing, of growing and realising more of your potential, of changing in ways that engage, please and satisfy you.
Isn’t that fabulous? Well, I think it is! Having the power to choose and the freedom to do what I want is an incredible feeling.
I felt every muscle in my body ease, the tension melt away, the fatigue lift. I was surrounded by books. The smell of them, the heft of them in my hand. The selection, too many from which to choose. I spent an indulgent hour there, and bought a volume of old letters and poems. Then I went next door to a cafe, and ordered a large pot of tea. I sat and sipped tea, and immersed myself in my book as the world walked past my table.
Be kind to yourself this week while these energies make all of us empaths more sensitive than usual.
