Be Clear

Looking back. 

What do you see? 

I see fear. 

I see lack of confidence. 

I feel the fear of rejection. 

I feel unhappy.  

Looking now with clarity. 

What do you see? 

I see joy. 

I see boundless confidence. 

I feel spicy. 

I feel love. 


Isn’t it amazing when you get really clear about what you want to see and feel? 

Isn’t it amazing when you get clear on the definitive destination of your daily life, family life and career? 

It is magnificent! 

The most beautifully created cake, meal, castle, gown or jewel cannot compare to how I feel right now in my life. 

Tapping into my core feelings every day thanks to this beautiful planner: 


Releasing tension and living with intention throughout my day thanks to the beautiful gift Brendon Burchard has given through his High Performance Habits book. 


Quiet in my soul. 

Stillness. 

Sureness. 

Deepness. 

Knowing. 

Being in my soul.  

Loving. 

Ease. 

Peaceful. 

Bliss. 

Now, off to change some lives through a great big brown box of super foods.

Be Proud

Today my heart swells with pride as I see how my community encourages children.

I am proud of my children’s efforts, genuine inspiration and creativity.

My heart overflows abundantly with gratitude.

For opportunity.

Effort.

Ability to read.

Having free libraries.

And really cool things for kids.

My boys, following my newly acquired love, have started watercolour painting. They have each entered a painting into an Exhibition. 20140801-225315-82395870.jpg

20140801-225333-82413052.jpgThey are very excited to take their grandparents.

On the same day, we walked across the street to our Public Library to hand in our finished reading logs. The boys got a medal and a free book. They were overjoyed.

Day by day.

Painting.

Reading.

Together.

With a goal in mind.

Or just because.

Coming from within.

To share with the outside world.

Beautiful painting.

Wonderful words.

Treasured boys.

What a gift they are!

What a wonderful community we live in.

Be Living Beyond Expectations (Painting)

Who knew what these last twelve months would bring?

Surprise after surprise, both wonderful and heartbreaking.

My self-assessment twelve months ago would have used the descriptors: mom, wife, daughter, previous jock, teacher-on-leave, Vtown girl…

I no longer live in Vtown, nor think of myself as a teacher, neither do I have a living mother anymore… The fact that I am painting makes me lie of the floor.

I was introduced to watercolour painting by Herta at this retreat. Sexy Neck bought me a set of paints for my birthday in a month later.

My heart is full of gratitude for having the luxury to play with colour on beautiful watercolour paper. My boys love it and always join me. We paint quietly together often talking about cool new colour creation or telling each other what we can see.IMG_4842 IMG_4843 IMG_4844 IMG_4845 IMG_4846

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Creative.

Peace.

Soul care.

Colourful.

Uplifting.

Unexplainable.

A pure gift from God.

Beyond anything I ‘thought’ I could do.

Have you lived beyond your expectations today?

Expectations.

Chains or freedom.

Choosing freedom.

Living in the beyond.

Painting.

Playing.

Expressing.

Me!
