Monday Mojo and Magic: Amazing Humans on You Tube

Happy Monday, Daydreamers.

Here's another brilliant video to prove there are those in the world who are purely amazing... amidst the bad of late, there is always good if you're ready to notice it.

Let's focus on the good for today...

Play, laughter and fun are such healers!

This week, may your mojo & magic be with you, and may you notice all the goodness around you, (even if it's hiding or hibernating).

Take notice of the little things... they can be small but mighty.

Monday Mojo & Magic: Mother Nature, A Wellspring of Self Care

This Monday morning, I'm thinking more about what makes me tick... what brings me joy... what I 'feel' as a part of me that brings meaning to my life.

Mother Nature is one of these things, and when I discovered the quote below, I fell in love with it.

As a young girl from the country I loved riding my bike for hours, climbing every type of tree I could lay my hands on, getting dirty and muddy, walking through the pine plantations near our home, watching the sun glint off fields of wheat at sunset, swimming, rolling down hills in long grass, cloud watching, wading in the small dams we had nearby, collecting stunning leaves and feathers... and too many other outdoor related moments in time to mention.

The outdoors has always called to my very heart and soul, and helps refresh every part of me like nothing else can.

What brings you joy and makes moments memorable?

I've promised myself I'm going to get outside this week, and get messy or involved somehow.

At the very least, I have 3 plants waiting to be potted that must be sick of sitting next to their lovely new homes and next to a bag of potting mix.

Happy Monday, Daydreamers!

May your mojo + magic be with you this week.

Monday Mojo and Magic: Yesterday I Was Clever...Today I Am Wise

Yesterday I was clever.jpg

It's a new week, a new 7 days to do things differently if I choose!

This week I'm thinking about some simple things I need to change to start a ripple effect in my life.... I'm going to stop watching the news in the morning before I go to work and put some invigorating music on instead.

I feel a week of Riverdancing in the morning coming on!

My Riverdance CD has some of the most poignant, inspirational, and blood pumping music on it.... I used to use it all the time for space clearing when the vibe in my home was feeling stagnant. It's a ripper for filling the air with a hum and a thrum that energises and makes you feel alive. A great way to get going in the morning!

Lately, I feel my brain is overloaded and overwhelmed. My energy being drained like sand washing away on the beach wave after wave. The 1000s of pieces of information that come at us every day and invade our thinking space are a phenomenal strain on our mental and emotional well-being.

I feel them numbing my vitality.

Tales of mass shootings, images of violence and disturbance blurring into a mish mash of turmoil and hopelessness (if I let them).

I like to remain aware of what's going on in the world, but for this week (and maybe ongoing for the near future), I think I can best serve myself, my class, and my community by showing up as a fully functioning, energetic, fresh, and open-hearted spirit who's not weighed down by a deluge of gloom.

I can't change the world.... but I CAN change myself, what I choose to watch or listen to, and therefore my outlook and attitude.

What are you going to try this week?

Anything new?

A simple change, no matter how small, can make a huge difference to your overall experience of life.


Happy Monday, Daydreamers.

May your mojo and magic be with you this week!

PS. I've added this post over on One Mother Hen's lovely 'Open Slather' link up!

PPS. My dear friend Bobbi could use some help...

Dearest Daydreamer - What Haven't You Done Lately?

The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention. Anthony J D'Angelo. Circle of Daydreams. www.circleofdaydreams.com

My Dearest Daydreamer,

It's been a little while!

I'm checking in to see how you are....

When was the last time you gave yourself the luxury of doing something special just for you?

Simply because you wanted to?

Because you love it?

And, did you do it with no guilt? Without feeling selfish and terrible for treating yourself with so much importance?

If there's one thing I've learned over time, it's that taking care of myself as if I'm a seriously important person is paramount to experiencing life to the fullest, as well as connecting with others in the most fulfilling way.

I don't mean turning into a narcissistic egomaniac who's unaware of others' feelings and lacking in compassion for anyone else... that wouldn't encourage any type of meaningful relationships. I believe kindness, empathy, and general decency are the touchstones of any life well-lived.

Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line. Lucille Ball. Circle of Daydreams. www.circleofdaydreams.com

But, after 50+ years on this amazing planet, and many tutorials by the 'Universe' in the form of life lessons, I've come to realize that self-care, self-nurturing, and self-love, allow me to sculpt and maintain the best version of myself.

And, creating and growing the 'best' version of myself not only has benefits for me, but for everyone in my life. If I show up for others fully present, feeling centered and at ease, happy in my own skin; then I'm giving them more than I'm capable of if I'm run-down, tired, and worn out from trying to do too much.

Taking time-out for myself reaps so many rewards.

No woman can control her destiny if she doesn't give to herself as much as she gives of herself. Suze Orman. Circle of Daydreama. www.circleofdaydreams.com

So, what is it you love to do that you haven't done lately?

What can you do that will nurture your soul, soothe your worries, inspire your mind, open your heart, and just make you feel darn good?

I'm talking about really simple things.....

  • Taking time out to sit at the beach, watch the waves roll in, and wriggle your toes in the sand
  • Spending half an hour sitting in the sun with a favourite magazine and a cup of tea
  • Snuggling in bed for an extra hour with a good book and nowhere else to be
  • Buying a bunch of beautiful flowers to bloom in your home
  • Taking yourself off to the cinema to catch a fabulous movie
  • Indulging in a long, hot bath with your favourite bubbles and a candle
  • Spending time writing in your journal or creating something
  • Getting a manicure, a pedicure or a massage
  • Giving yourself a facial, including a face scrub, a mask, and a moisturizing treatment
  • Cooking your favourite meal or baking your favourite cake and savouring the taste
  • Sitting quietly with your pet and giving it a cuddle or a pat
  • Walking through a beautiful park or amongst some wonderful trees

Time spent doing simple things you love can rejuvenate your mind, body and soul; and give you the opportunity to replenish your inner well or 'life-force'.

The next time you're running around doing things for everyone else, stop for a moment, and plan to do something for yourself.

You deserve it - totally - and so do your 'significant others'.

Putting yourself first when it comes to self-care and nourishment leads to a win-win situation for everyone. YOU get to feel happier and healthier, and your nearest and dearest get the best YOU possible.

PS. I'd love you to share the simple ways you put yourself first. How do you take time out to nurture your heart and soul?
