Delightful discoveries…

My daily routine has changed beyond all recognition and so has the way I earn a living. Whilst I get the hang of all these changes I am going right back to basics and it’s amazing how restorative sleep is. Sounds silly I know, but we push ourselves so hard and fret about so many things, when sometimes all we need is basics like rest and care.

I have been jumping in the car to run all my errands since I moved. My soul buddy recognised my difficulties in letting go and relaxing, so last time he was down here he took me back to the Tree Cathedral. He reminded me last night that the peace I found there was still inside me and he is right.

Today I don’t start work till this afternoon, so this morning I set off on foot to pick up some groceries and locate the postbox. The sky was choked with black clouds, but I was undeterred. Look what I found not a few hundred yards from our front door and yes, there is peace to be found there too. The sun broke through as I walked up to the trees surrounding this lovely spot and to my delight there are water lilies blooming in the middle.

Peace is also inside me.

    Yes, not surprising that many walk past beauty right at their doorsteps – and I meant that in every sense πŸ™‚

    Luv and hugz πŸ™‚

    Dearest Jane, I think that’s why we write – to find beauty and purpose, to know that love is possible and lasting and real, to see day lilies and calming pools, loyalty and devotion, even though our eyes may be closed. We write because at our core, there is peace and balance. No matter the clouds, there is always beauty. And even when I am too damaged to walk around the block, I know I will find it (or it will find me). If I can get to my pen, then I know anything is possible. This is a beautiful reminder that the universe will give us what we need ~ we only have to pay attention! Lovely…… ~ Me

    Peace is in all of us – in times of turmoil, in times of happiness, in times of life – it is there waiting to be found and I am happy you have found yours πŸ™‚ H xx
