Sunshine on my face

As Victorians, we have all had so much taken from us.

Accepting our situation has been and still is hard. Heartbreaking for many, what helps, is knowing we are all, millions sharing this one experience.

We are all experiencing it, living it and surviving it, in different ways, but we are all sharing it.

Waking up to seeing the sun shining bright today brought hope.

It was as if someone up there, where? Does it matter, whatever your belief, someone was holding my face saying you are going to be ok, you will get through this.

My heart said thank you

Remembering what we would have been doing one year ago. I felt gratitude for what I have had in my life to this day and what I know will return, perhaps altered, but, it will return

My heart is full for all I have in my life, right now, for all of you who touch my heart, my soul, my mind and who enrich my being

Walking by the water, the waves lapping over each other, with their freedom. The wind breathing on my face, through my hair, taunting me with its freedom, but whispering your time is coming. Believe. I choose to believe.

May the sun shine not only on you today, but within you
May it light your path as you walk through our world
May it shine in your life the beauty you deserve
Then tonight as you sleep may the moon restore you in preparation for another day

Be there for those who need your sunshine. Show up for them and say
I see you, I feel you, I hear you and I am here for you

You are ok. We will be ok. We will all get through this.

May the sun shine on you and warm your soul today

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
