learning to let go

“True forgiveness is when you can say, ‘thank you for that experience’.”Oprah Winfrey This month we are exploring the theme of kindness – towards those we know and love, towards those we meet in passing, towards those we may never know, towards our beautiful planet and, usually last but never least, towards ourselves.

Thank you so much for adding a regular dose of calm to my weekly chaos. Karen Rose Kingsbury, via Instagram Time to pause On Sunday, I really needed to press pause. I am learning that I have to force myself to take a break when I get engulfed in a creative project. I found time to sip an organic latte and read the copy of In The Moment mag that I had purposely bought for vision boarding as I knew there would be juicy quotes and pics to light me up – there were!
