When was the last time you were by yourself? Six out of the last eight weeks, at least one person in our home has been sick. Severity of each illness has ranged from the mildly irritating to requiring intervention at the emergency room. Life has not been dull and there has been very little rest.
My people have been very needy. So much so that I do not remember the last time I was alone. Therefore, this is my request to Mother Earth, just for the next little while.
Lady Gaia, please grant me, the
Energy- to keep putting one foot in front of the other
Humour- to see the funny side of accessorising my outfits with other peoples’ snot every day
Empathy- to put myself in someone else’s place, time and time again
Mindfulness- to enjoy little moments
Creativity- to provide a free range feeling on an inside budget (the public does not need exposure to this much snot or bodily product)
Recall- to remember why I am here
Clarity- to check myself, before I wreck myself
Imagination- to take myself to my favourite place in my head if things get a bit too much (stay tuned for this coming post in the Journey of Wellness series as this place is beautiful and amazing)
Insight- to know I always cope better when I put my earthly needs (like sleep, food and alone time) aside and focus on the requirements of my small people
Wisdom- to know this all shall pass
Integrity- to always live with respect and love
Purpose- a beautiful life.
Lady Gaia, should you choose to grant me any of the above wishes, my family would be extremely grateful and I promise to always recycle and live more sustainably 🙂

May Lady Gaia grant your request. Looking forward to “seeing” your favourite place for peace. A mother’s patience and love knows no boundaries but “me” time is necessary in the wellness journey. May you be granted Serenity to accept the things you cannot change; Knowledge to change the things you can and Wisdom to know the difference.
Yes, Desiderata for nature lovers…
