We all need to recharge. It’s been a busy year. I recently travelled to Wales to embrace its beauty and inspiration.
It’s really important to keep the balance and look after and invest in ones happiness. It’s very easy to let things get out of control. This wild ride can be scary, but also lead to a great adventure too.
Can you relate to the following? Neglect your wellbeing, become overwhelmed, overworked, exhausted, unhappy, unmotivated. Anxiety is the worry worm that can create so much suffering. This could lead to a number of issues in life, love, health, productivity, hope. Alone in a room full of people, alone in an empty room. When the dark never sees the dawn break. In a clear blue sky. The storm clouds linger. Depression can rear itself in lives that tick boxes of contentment and success. A smile can hide that Oscar Winner facade of hurt, confusion, despair. Pressure and stress creeps oh so thoroughly. If we don’t take action and learn how to deal with it and speak up. With the correct support. Whether that be a Doctor, Therapy, Diet, Sleep, Holistic Treatments, Meditation etc. These journeys that lead to answers, treatments, coping with life changing events to life changing good things. Can we work out all of our problems? I’ve witnessed the darkness, cushioned the fall after the climb. I’ve strengthened and helped nourish the roots that then slowly grow and blossom into the most beautiful thing. That doesn’t make me a heroine. It makes me human.
Money, fame, success for some. But how do you really measure wealth and appreciate happiness? The bottom line. Be grateful every day. Waking up to the wonder is a privilege. The Earth, Tree, Sky, Air, Sea… Just embrace and be who you always wanted to be. Follow your bliss. Don’t walk the path of others if it is not your own. Listen to your intuition.
A quick mention about Lizian events
Liz, Ian and team have been a great support to me. The community has inspired me and I feel privileged to be part of it.
We all can make the best of our lives. If it was easy, we’d all be doing it. Is it the journey, not so much the destination sometimes that we are most grateful for in hindsight?
Our Samhain Celebration. When the veil between is thinnest. We honour our loved ones and Ancestors.

Last year, I was working all hours in a managerial job, that promised the world but delivered misery.. That pursuit of financial stability and ‘abundance!’ I was miserable, stressed out, exhausted, irritable, felt victimized. I then made a choice. I resigned from the corporate rat race and went off to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. A fantastic adventure.

Upon my return. I started a part time job in Pagan/Wicca sales in a shop and began to really pursue my tarot reading business. My passion is helping others. Yes I need to pay the bills. There are times of struggles. I also like a treat, a good gig, cheese, Rugby and adventuring. But you know what? I’m grateful for everything I have. My family, my friends, loved ones, pets.
When you sit on a bench looking out at the lake, watching the sunrise..with a flask of tea. Life is good.
This week I ran a Herbal Incense workshop at Rainbow Bridge in Castle Donington. Big thanks to my friend and ‘Yoda’ Sally Wathen. Who has taught me so much. Crystal Healing, Kinesiology, Hopi Ear Candling. http://www.rainbow-bridge.co.uk/
Being around positive folk is inspiring. Turning a card, getting its message, my guides advice, sharing knowledge. Going to events, talks, meeting spiritual minded folk. Finding answers, guidance, love, happiness, peace..new things. I sought, I asked, I am grateful.. I get. Things can be turned around. We can all be in pretty dark places, sometimes feel there are no answers. The risk is too scary or seems unobtainable. But if you don’t try..You will never know. Do you work to live or live to work. “Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.” “By desiring little, a poor man makes himself rich.” – Democritus
“Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” – President Franklin D. Roosevelt
The pursuit of happy.
Have a great adventure.
