Little Things #3: Lost My Sparkle

Last week was a tough week for me.

Had a lot on my mind, a few challenges that had to be dealt with, and on top of it all, I had been travelling quite a bit, and I was probably quite homesick.

And someone noticed.

I had lost my usual sparkle.

I had not expected anyone to notice.

And it was sweet that someone cared enough to say something and ask me about it.

It’s little things like this that make a huge difference to someone.

When someone messages you and asks, “is everything ok?”

When someone makes an effort to make you laugh at the end of a tough day.

When someone suggests watching a funny movie to change your mood.

When someone just cares enough to do something about it.

I think I got my sparkle back this week.

Thank you for caring enough.

Little Things #2

Little things in life.

Here is #2.

Peu á peu

Some days are just filled with as much frustration as there are things to be grateful for.

It’s better to find sweetness in those small moments than to let the disappointments get you down.

I can do this.

Be The Light

It’s Sunday.

Be ready for the new week like you are LIGHT itself.

I am not happy

I am insouciant.

Why settle for happy when you can be insouciant?

Rare Word of the Day: Redamancy

It’s St. Valentine’s Day.

And I wish everyone could find, have, enjoy and appreciate redamancy.

A word that ought to be brought back to use in the English language.

Receiving and Letting Go

Stoic Lesson from Marcus Aurelius.

Things, titles, praise, adulation…

They come and they go.

Enjoy the moment.

And be ready to let go at any time.

Treat Yo Self Part IV

November has been a very very busy month for me.

Lots of days/ nights away from home.

And my little dog has been well looked after by my dear friends while I am away.

Today I treated myself with a day spent with my Pepper.
