Be Kind

Wake up with some botanical boosts

It’s been a tough few weeks mentally, with loss and grief. So I’ve taken pleasure from the simple things. A glimpse of sun, a light breeze on my face, a warm bath, a scented candle, a warm cup of tea on a frosty morning., a supportive arm around your shoulder, a warm smile, a shared joke, a dog’s enthusiastic welcome, watching the birds washing their wings in the feeder. These are the moments that become our days. Vanessa asked us to buy some flowers for ourselves. As it happens I didn’t have to as a sweet friend came for supper bearing a small bunch of purple tulips. How I love their cheerful stance. A bonus too our magnolia tree bloomed for the first time this week and it’s so pretty. They can’t help but raise a smile and that can’t be a bad thing.

I'm a single parent of ONE lovely lanky teenager.. I live in deepest rural Wales . My 'proper' job is in marketing and events but I am also a trained reflexologist, masseur and reiki giver (go figure!) I also look after my Mum who is in her late 80's, my dog Ted, my cat Black and my hens and dream is to have a small holding and offer people holidays in my teepee and maybe the odd therapy as you can see I am a mass of contradictions.... I like to walk, do yoga, eat salad and visit new places but I also like to drive fast, Feast ice lollies, vodka on Friday's with friends(, which leads to dancing in my kitchen) my coffee , and staying up late... I can be outgoing but also extremely shy so like the rest of you I am still trying to figure it out one day at a time...

Being kind and treating ourselves as a best friend is quite a revelation. You have been so caring and selfless towards others you certainly deserve to be like that for yourself!
