A sight for sore eyes

One of the benefits of being an early riser is seeing beauty like this. Is it not a sight for sore eyes?

Practising gratitude in the morning can have a profound effect on the rest of your day. I don't mean mindlessly listing what you're thankful for, but feeling each thing deeply.
Sending positive energy out to the world is really uplifting. It works like a boomerang. What you send out will always come back to you.

If you're alive & reading this, you already have at least 10 things to say THANK YOU for.

Turn your stressing into a blessing.
Have a beautiful day! Love ❤

Believe to Achieve

Text from my godmother:
"Don't forget to Believe"

Like we forget to breathe (deep inhales and exhales) we also forget to believe. It's all very well when we support our peers & in some cases - like me - become your student's number 1 cheerleader. It is also highly likely that you get unwavering support from your parents and teachers. I know I do.

But all of that is irrelevant if you don't believe in yourself. The starting point is within. It takes time to realize the truth in this, but as I told someone recently: No one else can start our inner fire, except ourselves.

Believing with your heart & soul, for whatever you want, is a sure step to creating magic!
Believe in your Life.
Believe in Yourself.
Believe in your Dreams.
Believe to Achieve!

Chirping birds on a rainy morning

I don't know if it's because I live in a corner unit, but my balcony has recently become a pitstop for my feathered friends. They congregate on my balcony and if I approach the door, they fly away...leaving lovely little presents for me to clean up (unless the rain washes it away).

They really only stay for a few seconds, but sometimes I'm afraid they will fly into my room. Last year I had a pigeon fly through my lounge, sit on my fridge looking confused and then just leave!

I've been awake since early this morning & noticed the birds singing from 05:00 already. 🐤🎶

Anyway...this little guy has been sitting here for a good few minutes. Chatting away or calling its friends for company / shelter from the rain on my balcony railing.

I decided not to shoo it away. After all what's a little present that I can sweep or mop away?! As I look around, I'm surrounded by rooftops and tall apartment buildings. These little creatures bring nature alive into our concrete villages. Their little chirps are quite welcoming over the traffic and hooting. Good morning, friends! 🐦

Praying Hands

These beautiful praying hands was a gift from my Godmother, given with the intention of ultimate protection.

Meditation & prayers of gratitude have seen me through valleys & dark nights. With all my heart, I believe we can always find something positive & good even in the worst of days. It takes time & effort, but the greatest realization is that we all have a choice: praise or criticize, love or hatred, forgive or grudge, happiness or sadness.

Good evening friends, near & far ♡

Let it go. And move on!

I heard a very interesting and inspirational message this morning about overcoming adversity.

Imagine you (accidently) put your hand in a some garbage. What will be your instinctive reaction? Surely you will shake it off and rush to the nearest tap to wash your hands with soap and water.

This is an example of how we should live our lives. Sometimes we will find ourselves in unfavourable situations with difficult people. Sometimes we're in the midst of anger, hurt, betrayal, rejection. The list goes on. Just like you wouldn't NOT wash your hands covered in garbage, you should shake the negativity off as soon as possible. Let it go and move on!

Easier said than done, I know!
But a nice reminder nonetheless :)
