I Believe In.... [Monday Mojo & Magic]

When it comes down to tin-tacks... what do you believe in?

What would be your frittered down essence of belief?

I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. Mary Oliver. Circle of Daydreams. www.circleofdaydreams.com

I mention mine over on my about page... but this gorgeous quote, (stumbled upon over here on Meghan's most beautiful site) prompted me to dust them off again and share them here.

I Believe:

  • In cradling gently, and letting go.
  • In a soft heart, with stable boundaries.
  • Creativity + a curious mind = awesomeness.
  • Real books beat E-books hands down.
  • Every moment is mine to make the most of.
  • Making stuff soothes the soul....
  • So does music and dance.
  • Cats have eyes that see inside your heart.
  • Hugs are good medicine....
  • So is volunteering!
  • Magic is possible, it just depends on your definition.
  • I have all I need, and it's within me.
  • The best is yet to come.

Listing my beliefs out helped me get re-acquainted with myself and the things I love... and it felt good to be me!

Happy Monday, Daydreamers... what do you believe in?

May your mojo and magic be with you this week.

What's The Story of YOU? [Monday Mojo & Magic]

The bulk of life is discovering who you are... and reconciling that with who you wish you were. Richelle E Goodrich. Circle of Daydreams. www.circleofdaydreams.com

I know that the video below is an advertisement for Ancestry.com, but I think there's a message in there for a lot of people at the moment..... worth watching....

As some of the lines from one of my favourite Aussie anthems go.... 'We are one, but we are many, and from all the lands on Earth we come. We share a dream, and sing with one voice..."

At least...

I wish we did, in so far as our dream might be to live a life of freedom and love, free from fear and trauma..... and our voices could uplift each other in the process.

This Monday, may your mojo and magic be with you... the dream is still alive.

Keep the faith.

Play Is The Highest Point of Research [Monday Mojo + Magic]

Play is the highest point of research. Albert Einstein. Picture quote from Circle of Daydreams. www.circleofdaydreams.com

Albert Einstein has penned so many of my favourite quotes, and I seem to discover more and more as time goes on.

I ran across this one the other day, and loved it!

This Monday, I'm reminding myself that play is not inconsequential in the maelstrom of our lives... it can encourage insight, expand ideas, spark creativity, lead to pure joy, embed memories, drive out stress, and replenish our draining wells of energy.

For me, play is the simplest form of enjoyment, and the best way to tend to my inner child (before she throws a tantrum in the form of burnout and exhaustion).

This week, I'm going to find time to play.... even if I have to schedule it in like an appointment in my diary.

What are you going to do this week to give yourself a boost?

Happy Monday, Daydreamers...

May your mojo + magic be with you this week.

My Version of Black Out Poetry = Gratitude Art!

As you may know by now, I love my gratitude practice because it's brought so much to my life.

I also love to draw and create, so... I decided I'd have a go at some art that brings the two together.

I discovered (via a friend) this thing called 'black out poetry' on Pinterest the other day, and fell in love. What's not to like... pages of text from old books, art, creativity, playing with words... all things I love.

So, I decided it was time for a little adventure (I had holiday time), and dove in head first.

The idea, is to focus on simple, gratitude worthy things, and black out the rest. Kind of like the way being grateful inspires us to spotlight the positives in our lives and leave the negatives alone.

Wallah!

Gratitude Art!

You can see an example of one of my creations below, and find it to download in The Garden of Gratitude. I'll be adding more in there as time goes on.

Gratitude Art in black out poetry. Circle of Daydreams. www.circleofdaydreams.com

All I needed was an old book page (found in a second hand shop), some artist's charcoal, and my trusty fine-liner!

This was lots of fun, and looking for the simple words describing things to be grateful for (that we might take for granted) was almost meditative!

You'll also find gorgeous printables, wallpapers, journals, booklets, templates, coloring pages, and info about gratitude blooming in The Garden.

30 + goodies created by moi!

I hope to see you in there soon - entry is free.
