Last weekend’s harvest moon has really got me thinking about nourishment. As the seasons change, sometimes so do our priorities. The back to school vibe of September is a great time to check in and figure out what best fills you up – nutritionally, emotionally, even spiritually.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself a weirdo to be your friend, never ever let them go. Especially if they enjoy your unique brand of weird too.
Sometimes people like to recommend doing one thing each day that scares you. Perhaps instead, do at least one thing each day that fills you with joy.
If you do your best and you don’t succeed the first time – keep trying, your best can always get better.
Where do you belong? Finding friends or family to spend time with has a positive impact. the more social support you have in your life can decrease stress and is statistically correlated with better mental and physical health.
Sometimes it may not feel like it, but I assure you, your hopes and dreams as within reach.
Sometimes you don’t really need an inspirational quote to get you through the day. Sometimes, you just need a big cup of coffee.
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt”
Wise words, I guess. The above quote is often attributed to Mark Twain or Abraham Lincoln, but the truth is that no one really knows. Such “wise” statements are often attributed to a many different people including they are just cliches that get constantly repeated Perhaps instead of invoking the words of people long gone (not discounting their achievements and importance in history of course) we should make our own quotes and define our own wisdom!
Have faith in the universe, good things are on their way.
We live in a beautiful world, full of diverse life and environments. Sadly, the world is changing as the global temperature climbs higher and higher every year. Today is Earth Day, and perhaps consider two things. First, think about ways that you can help out. Maybe instead of driving to a shop you cycle, walk or take public transportation. Start carrying some cloth bags to carry your groceries in and say no to disposable plastics. Or even consider reducing your consumption of meat and dairy products. Second, demand that your government representatives take the threat of climate change seriously, as it effects us all. The Earth is a wondrous place, and we are her stewards, it’s up to us to set things right.
