Lets just take all this in today, and breathe. X

This works everytime for me. If you get a chance to listen to it in the sun, even better. You can really feel like you are there.

Don’t forget that the mind often can’t tell the difference between a real experience and an imagined one.

That is why in sports the players now use this mental imagery to visualise the shot, the win etc with amazing effectiveness.

So surely this must be the same. Even if you only drift off for a quick 5 or 10 minutes on the beach. It is still 5 or 10 minutes, of properly appreciating and enjoying the experience, on a beach and you can go whenever I feel like it.

How great is that.

Listen to the waves and breathe. This is often all I need to centre myself again.

There is something quite primal about it. Another way to connect with the planet, yourself and everything really.

It almost washes right through me, rather than just over me. As though it washes away all other vibrations.

No matter how tight or stressy or tightly wound I feel going in. It always seems to find a way of slowly lapping away at it all. Patiently massaging the vibe until eventually it gets you back to breathing in sync. With them, yourself and the universe.

Where all is, yet again, possible.

By then I am home and back to being me.

The real me. The little me I was before life kicked in.

My essential me.

I do love her. She is so much more fun and never wastes time on any future past. She is always here, always happy and always ready for anything.

Worth taking the time to get back to the real you, don’t you think?

The one that doesn’t lose it with bad drivers ( even if only in her head now, @progress) or even just reacts in ways that later we know aren’t really us.

Worth a think about ?

Enjoy 🌊🌊🌊🌊

THANK YOU….🙏 And LOVE YOU !

YES YOU !

Truly from the bottom of my Enormous ❣ heart, even if I say it myself. I could not do this, nor would there be any point without you.

I suddenly realised that we may be close to 1000 people now joining us in the fun. Turns out I can count after all and in reality it is now 1100 Odd fellow Big Hearts following across the board on all platforms! 🙌💜🙌

So just WOW really, I am SO grateful for YOU, every last one of you, love you all for being so kind.

I am genuinely touched ( in a good way 😂😏) and feeling the love, So thankyou, thankyou, thankyou all.

This is going to be SO fun 😁

Also on a similar note a five days ago I promoted my first post on Facebook and on to Instagram. So I thought I would share the experience for any others thinking of doing the same to promote their thang. Also to explain why I am especially feeling the love and had to say something.

The add cost me a sum of £4 a day but it’s really entirely up to you what you spend. It was enough to risk as I see it like any gamble. Only ever bet what you are prepared to lose. Particularly as I am a genuine Neewb to all of this. I thought I would give it a go.

So I tried to choose a post that I thought that was..

A. A relevant/ important post, as in if you post often, one of your best, not a filler or a to short post to say much.

B. It had attracted likes in the past. Enough to show it doesn’t suck at least as a minimum I would say in my vast experience 😂

C. It was an attractive photo ( visuals are key..ALWAYS.) But I would say that, as it’s what I understand and know best. I LOVE THIS PHOTO. That why I used it as my introduction to the blog on my very first post.

D. It has something that shows who you are. I used one with all the playlists on so people could see exactly who we are and get a feel for us very quickly in a single post.

So Despite instagram being the last platform that I ventured to bravely, if I was/am still slightly fumbling around like a child. Now I’d have to say, that I am reborn in regards to Instagram. What is not to like. Well maybe the sharing features, ahem!

Not only must they be, most definitely, showing it to people who could possibly like and/or respond to my kind of blog, but your amazing response has just blown me a way and proved to be a great success.

That one post has been shown to 10k people In 4/5 days and had an wonderful reaction, Thank you 🙏

We were at 1700 likes as I drafted this yesterday, now more than over 2000 likes on that one post and seems to be growing by the minute, and 200+ follows too.

WOW you lot, Big up you 💜💜💜

As apposed to Facebook getting only 8 likes… which is a vast difference, and NO followers other than personal requests. So to speak.

It is so hard to have a clue what you are doing in the beginning of all this. So to see this kind of response is wonderful to feel that I must be doing something right. Codependently or not. It genuinely makes me happy, Lol.

Big apologies too if I made any mistakes with the old follow not follow malarkey. New to this, and all that. So I don’t always/often know what I’m doing. So if the follow was offensive, it was meant more as a gift to say thank you for all the likes for any who want them.

Nor do I have any intentions of going prying through your life or pics because I see this as an invasion of privacy. As you can see I highly value my privacy as you can see, so I feel EXACTLY the same about yours. So apologies if I do not accept the personal FB account requests, also for the same reason.

So just so you know FYI.

I WILL NOT be going through anyone’s personal pics. Sorry.

So no matter how hot as F##k you look in that selfie from the bathroom in your Pants/mankini, or on that beach…it’s private so I won’t even be looking let alone liking any of that kinda thing.

It’s nothing personal…it’s just personal.

I will Like the odd pet, flower or view. But even babies ( who are genuinely some of my most favourite people in the world) or even family pics, would already feel like an invasion of someone’s privacy to me and so a huge no no.

So please don’t think I don’t think your baby, selfie, or body is fab…I’m sure they are all Fanfu**ingfantastic. It’s just I am Genuinely not looking.

Pets though…fair game 😂

Equally finding time to fit everything I need into the days is enough of a challenge to me, without looking through 200 odd lives, I’m sure you are the same.

That is why I followed, just as a way to say thanks to any who want them only.

So To all you Big Hearts

Thankyou all and

BIG BIG BIG LOVE YOU LOVELY PEOPLE….

With Impeccable Taste 😂😉

For you

If I am quiet — House of Heart

I can watch butterflies float weightless over gardens. Stained glass collages of amber, rust, and brown set in facets of sable veins. They hover over flowers, compound eyes and fluttery feelers, faces smeared flaxen too fine for the eye to see. Free from fear death is not a concept on their mystical journey. If I am […]

If I am quiet — House of Heart

Spriritual-ish, Song for the day. WONDERFUL WORLD by James Morrisson.

Don’t ever forget life is way too short to not be the real you, and besides… everyone is already taken. x

Ask all those who have ever nearly died. Not that i would recommend it obviously, but it is a wonderful side effect none the less. Looking always for the right side.

The appreciation you have for every breath, from then on is phenomenal. Each and everyday in every way is a blessing. Each second spent with my son, my family or friends a massive bonus.

The small stuff does not matter and just melts away. It gets the importance it always deserved…the small and insignificant kind.

Each day a gift, that is why they call it the present. X

I am especially grateful for this today.

What makes you grateful today?
