Lady Gaia, Please Grant Me…

Tired much?
Tired much?

The Context

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.

The Request

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.

The commitment

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 🙂

  1. 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.
