It is ok to take some personal space sometimes to recharge. This weekend, make sure you carve out some time just for you to spend with yourself.

It is ok to break off for a bit and join back when you are ready.

Whew, sometimes the weeks feel like they go by so fast! Take some time this weekend to pause and take an inventory of all the amazing things in your life. It is hard but sometimes remembering a special detail here and there can highlight the best bits of life that can easily slip under the radar and be taken for granted.

So many little things to take stock of and be grateful for this weekend ❤

I have said it before when I am running late, and I will likely say it again in the future. Sometimes, if you save something until the very last minute, it only takes a minute to do.

With 45 minutes to spare!

It is never too late to start something new or make a big change. Rest today and prepare for new opportunities and developments for the week ahead.

Feel like changing course? To quote a famous shoe, just do it.

A new study from the Queen Mary University of London indicates that goats lead rich emotional lives. Their research has shown that goats can recognise the calls from their goat friends and distinguish those calls from the sounds of unfamiliar goats, an ability scientists call emotional contagion. The study even showed that goats respond to specific emotions of other goats, for example when their friends are happily enjoying a meal, illustrating that goats have empathy. Empathy is an amazing trait that goes hand-in-hand with compassion – aren’t goats amazing?

Empathy and compassion are wonderful traits to have.

It is perfectly acceptable to take up space in the world. You are an amazing and deserving of acceptance and respect. I have been really inspired lately, surprisingly, by recent sports events and want to share an amazing quote from an amazing woman:

Putting yourself out there is hard, but it’s so worth it. I don’t think anyone who has ever spoken out, or stood up or had a brave moment, has regretted it. It’s empowering and confidence-building and inspiring. Not only to other people, but to yourself.

-Megan Rapinoe

Always use your platform to bring positivity and goodness in the world.

Sometimes it may not feel like it, but I assure you, your hopes and dreams as within reach.

Keep reaching for the stars and you’ll get there eventuality

Two years ago, I was spending some time on the internet (to be honest, as I do everyday). I came across the most magnificent collection of portraits photographs by Kevin Horan, published in the Guardian. This was before the Goat of the Day blog, perhaps even before I thought about specializing in goat photography and understanding the connection between positive vibes and goats. I was totally inspired, and many people have shared these photographs with me since. One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that people share the goats they come across in their lives or on the internet with me. So, today’s goat of the day comes courtesy of Kevin Horan and the Guardian. I hope that you all find inspiration somewhere this weekend.

Meet Lily, the goat of the day. Maybe one day, I will be so lucky as to take goat portraits in such a setting.

Today is the 182nd day of the year, so we are halfway through! Time really goes by quite quickly sometimes – take some time to reflect on all that you have experienced and accomplished so far this year – and perhaps revisit and reimagine resolutions and goals you set for yourself 182 days ago and make new ones for the next 182 days ahead.

Already halfway to 2020….

No matter what time of year it is, what time of day it is, the right choice is always to be kind and compassionate. If you are ever in doubt of what to do, choose the thing that is the most kind.

There is a beautiful mural nearby where I live that says “Kindness is always in season”
