Just getting started


Feels like I'm just getting into my week. Like my week is starting today. Well...maybe it is! Hihi. Went through yesterday in a post weekend away daze. My bestie is right, travel days need one to be a little more gentle with oneself. Even if it's just to mourn or hold onto the magic of the moments that have gone by a little longer and to take a few extra minutes to file them into memories for a life time.

Do more of this

I was up at 3am this morning, haunted by work I've put off unreasonably long, considering it is not all that complex, 1, and 2, it's so I can get paid.

I am totally a morning person. So much more productive and practical and less prone to distraction! Good times for me all around. I also have my best dance moves at this time of day too. 

It's just dawned on my what I love a lot about mornings and early mornings more especially, that inherent sense of anticipation. There is so much wonder just ensconced in these early hours, before whole word awake. An almost holding of nature's breath and a wonderful Universal slow exhale, before the hurried, breathing of the hustle of the day really comes into effect.

May the magic of the morning linger long into your day.

Joburg winter. No matter how many layers I wear lately, I just can't seem to get warm enough. I am so thankful for the sunshine and really hope that it warms me all the way through.

I quite like this layered look above!

Tuesday! Tackle it!!

Excited for today

This ensemble though.
Woke up fresh and feisty this morning and good news just seemed to greet me. Please oh please may we never underestimate a good night's rest!! Ariana Huffington really is onto something with that. Let us NOT be fooled. We seem to live in a society where we seem to congratulate each other for our extreme levels of exhuastion an have various tired-offs as it were. Stop it! When you are sleepy, your body is telling you to rest!

Listen to your body this weekend. Our bodies are so wonderful and clever and their knowledge runs through the depths of all our beautiful fibres.

Here are some stirring weekend reads:

Attachment  - so much to this! Wow!
More precious than gold you are to hold (I cannot wait for this)
I do love a home remedy
My sister and I will be first in line to watch Bridget Jones Baby

Have a wistfully wonderful weekend.

Humpy hump day

Need to give myself a break!
This Wednesday was humpier than most. Really was slow to start, I must say! Yikes! But got going and a cortado got me through.

Did realise though that it's so important to not be too hard on myself and take it easy sometimes.  Also when feeling this lack lustre, make yourself feel better about getting some work done, by getting stuck in admin that is not too demanding. Celebrating small victories!
