Enjoy the Good Life

‘When you’re happy like a fool, let it take you over
When everything is out you gotta take it in
Oh, this has gotta be the good life’
– One Republic, Good Life

As I sit here typing an email to confirm the details for the bank account that my partner and I are opening for our new conscious clothing company, Katkin, I’m listening to Good Life by One Republic. And its a very simple message that I want to share with you today and that is about appreciating the good life.

 

Life is always going to throw us curve balls. People are sometimes going to act out of turn and blindside you. People might get sick. You may have disappointments or things that make you confused or sad. However, with every down there is an up. Without the sour we can’t enjoy the sweet. And this is the magical and varied tapestry of the thing we call life. And no matter what happens, essentially we are here to enjoy the ride and the journey.

So, whatever goes on in your life. Feel it, experience it, observe it, and ultimately aim to enjoy it and make the most of it, because this is the opportunity that we have in every moment that we are alive in these beautiful bodies living upon this exquisite planet.

So, this blog post is dedicated to enjoying the good life. And whenever life is giving you lemons, you always have the opportunity to turn them into lemonade. It just takes a little sugar and water. 🙂

Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,

Get into the vortex!

‘Some days you just need to jump into the vortex and let the Universe do its job’

– Abraham-Hicks –

So, Abraham channelled by Esther Hicks has been coming into my life a fair amount recently, so it only seems fitting to mention him/them in another blog post to you all 🙂

I came across this fantastic video the other day that talks about ‘getting into the vortex‘.

Abraham, through Esther asks ‘Are you a co-operative component to whats in your vortex?

If you’re angry, the answer is no. If you’re aggravated, overwhelmed, frustrated, fearful, blameful, guilty, the answer is no. If you’re joyful, frisky, optimistic, if you’re playful, if you’re interested, the answer is yes. If you’re loving, if you feel appreciation, you’re tuned into this vortex of creation. And when you tune to it, and you tune to it often, what happens is the vibrational distance between you and you becomes less and less, because you practice the in the vortex vibration. ‘

So, what does ‘being in the vortex’ mean?

Here’s another video that I found that explains this.

 

To me, it means being in effortless flow. It means being present. It means following your heart and following your truth. Doing the things that you love. Being with the people who you love. Being in the places that you love. Everything in the vortex is fun and light, effortless and easy. Everything outside of the vortex is the opposite.

And it is my intention from this day forward to spend as much time in the vortex as possible. And if I get spat out, that’s fine. Just an opportunity to focus on getting back into it. 🙂

Sending you all love, hugs and light,

Live for the now

While I was looking for inspiration for my blog post today, I saw two posts on Facebook that I couldn’t ignore and were very definitely linked.

The first was the quote from the Dalai Lama, which is above, and very simple, yet profound.

And the second was an article from viralnova.com about a set of pictures that photographer Tom Hussey took to illustrate just how much we change in our lives and how  quickly time can pass if we’re not present to it.

Here are a handful of the photos, but you can view all of them here.

And you can visit Tom Hussey’s site here.

So, if you were 100 and looking back at a photo of yourself when you were younger, would you be happy with the life that you have led up until that point? Are there things that you are likely to wish you had done? Places you’d been? Things you had seen?

I have recently turned 33, which means that I have another 77 years on this planet to continue to make a positive difference and live the life of my dreams. What would you like to feel about your life and the journey you have taken when you look in the mirror at 100?

Sending you love, hugs and light,
