Do ever just feel a bit Aaaaaaghh !

I know I do… So this is when I practice gratitude like a good’en repeatedly and especially on the days it’s feels the hardest to.

Then I listen to something like this to try shake me out of it.

How about you ?

Today I am grateful for this time of year. I just LOVE those Autumn Leaves.

I do so love this time of year. The leaves are so beautiful, even in their swansong and right till their very crisp end.

Even better if you are flying into Canada. All I can say is Wow ! Aerialy with all those maple trees…. it is utterly breathtaking.

I know it’s a cold time of year and pretty damp too, which no one knows this better than us Brits, I can assure you.

So we rush around trying to get from one warm haven to the next as fast as possible. Often moving so fast that we forget to takè the time to look around and appreciate each season’s artistry.

But i like to do the opposite when ever possible. I wrap up with my many, many and I do mean many layers as I get quite cold and I dont want that to be my excuse lnot to go out at all, or to be able to linger any longer than is absolutely necessary.

Then I go can go out on frosty walks and try to slow myself right down in order to be able to soak it all in.

To really notice and enjoy each tiny bug or feisty little Robin and rutting dear. No matter how small I see the beauty of them all.

Every tiny twisted twig or Knarley knot and bough. Each gloriously flaming leaf enjoyed.

Which wonderfully ends up feeling a lot more like a walking meditation in gratitude, for all our wonderful world filled with such incredible colour and beauty at every turn. If you only take the time to look.

If not now…


Every breath and each new day
Every new experience, even in odd ways.

A blessing and gift to relish
With our loved ones we best cherish.

Another dawn to share with them
If we don’t tell them now, then when?

Lest we forget, sadly how few we get.
Drink that wine and get those feet wet.

beloved showed heart and the petty left behind.
The key to life is to be grateful, genuine and kind.

I choose Life and an Army of Love. X

Please don’t think that because this blog is only about the light and the positive, that I live in some Disney delusion about life. Or even some Disney life.

Or even that life has magically stopped being life for me, and I have avoided all hardships. That the perceptual guidance system and eternal teacher that is life has missed me out somehow. 

I am blessed yes and have had a blessed life too, but please don’t think that I do not see the skies as dark and bleak sometimes. Or that I have not seen the full spectrum of life on earth and that I don’t understand the shade.

There have been times, years even where I was so lost that I had trouble finding the will or the strength to even be able to get up and face the day. I most definitely have.

 It got so bad at one time that I reached a point of such disenchantment with everything that I didn’t see the point of even bringing a child into a world such as this…

Dark I know and the complete polar opposite of how I feel now, or how the real me feels.

So what changed?

Well let’s face it, all that could have changed is my attitude towards it all and I think my attitude to gratitude too I guess. The Universe just is and hasn’t changed coincidentally for anyone ever, so the change must have come from me.

How had I gone from the happiest, confident, capable, hopeful, glimmering joy of a child. As I believe all children are born…and end up like that?

 I went from my lifelong dream of having a big happy, buzzing home, full of life, lots of kids, nature and dogs even….To that.

Sad when that happens really, when we get so squashed and re shaped in weird amorphous ways until in the end you don’t even recognise yourself.

But precisely perhaps because I have felt all of this and more for far too many years, is exactly why Instead now I choose life.

What I have learnt to do instead, is to see it all yes, light and dark which is far more constructive than wishing, hoping, avoiding or ignoring things unrealistically.

 Though now I try to actively only focus my attention on the positives in any thing I see and surround my self with the same.

 I cannot tell you how this one thing has revolutionised my life and my thinking. What a vast change in the energy it attracts when you do too.

How everything then looks like a blessing. Even looking back on things in your life that are gone and past are seen differently too.

 All those perceived disasters are now actually blessings and the universe trying  desperately to help us out of where we are not thriving and get us where we should be going.

It was just wearing a f***ing good disguise. Lol

Believe me I could write a whole blog just called, Ranty me or how to change the world with love. But let’s face it there are millions of places to moan and vent. Places that extensively only seem to focus on negatives and the bad, like the news.

I have learnt it does not help and it does not serve me at all and In fact it does the opposite and attracts more of the same. Like attracts like. So why would I bother with anything other than all the loveliness.

Instead now, I ALWAYS choose Life, Always choose Love…..Always choose Light and always choose kindness for all, but not forgetting to add me to the list too.

So This is why I created this blog Really as all of our our little save haven of such. A place where we revel in the positive, the creation, the light, the good energy and always the love.

 Where we come to get away from all that negative news, where we only look up to the stars.

Imagine what could be done with a whole worldwide army of love all sending out that kind of positive energy into the world. 

Mmmmmmmmmy kind of place.
