Laugh a lot

“The best way to treat obstacles is to use them as stepping-stones. Laugh at them, tread on them, and let them lead you to something better.” ~ Enid Blyton


This is a New Year, new beginnings full of Rainbows

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”
― Arnold Bennett

The Dance

An open heart is the portal to the eyes to the soul. When we begin to see and feel through the eyes of the soul we connect to the oneness of the universe and become, not merely an onlooker, but an active participant, a creative force performing with and fully integrated within the magnificent, cosmic dance of life. ~ Mary Anne Byrne

Winter is a Magical Time

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ― Edith Sitwell

Winter Cocoa

Winter is officially here, creeping into our bones after snowball fights and the making of the snowman. Though far from simply the doom and gloom of bitter cold days and dark evenings, winter is a magical time to spend with family and friends, spend evenings nestled by log fires with mugs of hot chocolate and chestnuts in hand.


Look for a Star

When life doesn’t seem worth the living
and you don’t really care who you are
when you feel there is no one beside you
look for a star

When you know you’re alone and so lonely
and your friends have travelled afar
there is someone waiting to guide you
look for a star

Oh everyone has a lucky star
that shines in the sky up above
if you wish on a lucky star
you’re sure to find someone to love

A rich man man, a poor man, a beggar
no matter whoever you are
there’s a friend who’s waiting to guide you
look for a star

A rich man, a poor man, a beggar
no matter whoever you are
there’s a friend who’s waiting to guide
look for a star.

Adoring the Light

The progress of our soul is like a perfect poem. It has an infinite idea which once realised makes all movements full of meaning and joy.  ~ Rabindranath Tagore
