I’m generally upbeat but recently I’ve allowed the unfolding craziness in the world to ‘get’ to me. So, when I came across this blogpost, Free Spirit Byron Bay (shared by Earthschool Harmony on Facebook) I just had to reblog it!
I don’t read newspapers or watch live TV ~ but it’s practically impossible to avoid the sensational and biased stories on which Social Media thrive. These sites are brilliant mechanisms for keeping in touch with distant family and friends so I’d rather keep my accounts open, although I’m going to self~regulate my activity on them for a while. The slew of chaotic messages can overwhelm my senses, unless I take time out to touch base with what’s really important to me.
So I’m heading out into my garden to reconnect with Mother Nature by tending my plants. Literally ‘digging in the dirt’ gives me a more balanced perspective!
So I’m looking forward to a perfectly Nurturing Thursday and I wish everyone else the same ~ however you choose to spend it!
(Nurturing Thursday is hosted by Becca Givens, author of an inspiring bog. To read more about it, or to find out how you can join in, please visit On Dragonfly Wings With Buttercup Tea.)

Lately, I’ve been doing something I don’t usually do, something I know doesn’t feed my soul and, as expected, it has made me feel disconnected from spirit, weighed down and flat.
Yup, I’ve been watching/reading the news and getting caught up in media frenzy and negativity. It’s too easy to feel absolutely overwhelmed and unable to make a difference when such huge global issues are discussed on a moment to moment basis. And so, I took the day off. My two daughters and I drove up into the lush green hills, spread out blankets, threw down some scatter cushions and we ate, talked, read, laughed and connected with the vibrations of this beautiful planet. Soul food. Love.
It doesn’t mean I am burying my head in the sand by any means but, it does mean I have again realised I can’t carry the weight of the world on my shoulders or control the outcome…
