When last did you feel deeply, the sense of unbridled joy and freedom which a child experiences when it experiences something for the first time? That experience that brings one a deep sense of wonder and excitement, bringing you completely and utterly into the present moment, where nothing else but that joyful experience exists.
Well today, I'm asking you to go within yourself and try to recall an experience just like that! An experience from some time in your past where you truly felt this way! And if you can't recall anything - pretend, imagine how this would feel. Spend some time with this so that you begin to feel it not only on a mental level, but on a physical and emotional level too! Feel it welling up within your body. Feel a smile begin to expand across your face. Feel the tingling excitement. Allow yourself to immerse your whole being into this experience. Now, from this heightened state, quickly, without giving it too much thought, allow an idea of what would give you an actual experience of this now. It might be going to hug/play with your dogs; it might be grabbing your partner and dancing; it will be something different for everyone. But when this idea flashes across your mind - go and do it! And then remember this moment of joy! And begin to recall more, and create more new experiences of these kinds of moments. Remind yourself, place little 'post-it' notes on mirrors, on doors, so that you bring into your mundane daily routine, intense moments of joy, reminding yourself that life is not merely a drudge, but also a series of moments that make you feel truly alive, joyful and free!
So, beautiful souls, go out and express joy in your lives today, and every moment you possibly can. For you will never have this moment again - make the most of it!!
Love and joy to all,

We're so overly focussed on what's wrong with ourselves and obsessed with healing that which we perceive is wrong, that we completely overlook all that is right with ourselves. And before you think or say ….'but there's nothing right with me now.' STOP! - don't even go there!
We're so conditioned to think of ourselves in terms of not being good enough; not being smart enough, not having the perfect body, job, home ….even life!! For goodness sakes!!! Just STOP already! A-N-D STOP listening to others who say that!
Briefly consider (without going into the drama or attaching to the thoughts) all of the challenges you've overcome to get to this very moment in your life. WOW!!! It's AMAZING isn't it?! And YOU'RE AMAZING to have got through it all. Sure, there may be a few bumps and scrapes on the bodywork and the engine may be misfiring a bit and there may even be a few parts missing, but HEY!! YOU'RE HERE, NOW, BREATHING, LIVING - ALIVE!!! And the future holds SOOOOOO much potential - waiting just for you!
So with that sense of amazement, I want you to go look in the nearest mirror and if you are not able to get to a mirror right now, take a selfie (Yep, I'm actually saying it! ;) ) Take a selfie of yourself - now in this very moment. And then look yourself in the eyes and from your heart, with every inch of conviction you can muster, tell yourself just how AMAZING you really are! Repeat it until you actually FEEL it and KNOW it! Then smile at yourself - a beautiful warm, loving smile and know that you are going to be fine no matter what life throws at you because there is and will always be something about you and your life that is TRULY AMAZING! And this is what you can always count on for courage, strength and support.
So, all you amazing, unique, precious souls, today I wish you clear vision so you are able to see your own amazing self with your own eyes and heart, and know that THIS is who you truly are!!!!!!!!!
Love and peace always 💖🙏
