Finally here


This summer's been what I least expected. Ups and downs. Fast and slow. Filled with contrast. But I suppose that's more than summer - that's living, learning, surviving, celebrating. That's life.

Half way through the season and finally the summer weather {read heatwave} has arrived.
And finally it feels I've arrived too - thriving in body, mind and soul.

This summer has equalled...
More time at the beach with my girls than ever before.
Realigning myself with priorities, rhythms and intentions that speak to my heart.
Finding pockets of slow to see me through bursts of relentless and busy {but grateful for} work.
Redefining healthy once more.
Learning and relearning.
Affirming, journaling and meditating.
Gaining new insight. And ideas.
Buying more books than I can read right now.
Carving out pockets of time to be alone and just be.
Choosing more. And choosing less.
Making parts of each day a holiday, when true holidays just can't happen right now.

And it feels like all these changes have been a long time coming.
But today I realised while the timing was gradual it was also perfect, and it's left me looking at a better {healthier, stronger} me.

What makes you a better you? x

  1. You've described the season to date perfectly. To be honest, I found these past few months somewhat chaotic.

    To be better, I need to make time for meditation, hop back on board the yoga train and remember to breathe and let go. I need to make time for calm. X

  2. Elisa, I'm so happy that you've been able to find some time for yourself in creating a better and healthier you. :) I find having a little time to myself and being left to do something for myself makes me a better and happier person. This is something I need to work on this year :) xx

  3. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of interesting and helpful posts just like yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. And also, I think you'll love my recent blog post titled How To Live A Long & Healthy Life

    I'm hoping to hear from you too and quickly, you've got a great blog here.

    Daniel.
