3 years ago when I left my relationship of 20 years I promised myself I would create a joyful space filled only with things I love, hand made, high quality, and above all, a reflection of the new life, lifestyle and career I was determined to create. ('Be reasonable and get a real job' was the 'friendly' advice I got at the time too 😳🤣🤣🤣) 👑
I also wanted to live in a jungle. For the wild aliveness and vivacity that plants bring. 👑
Yep, 3 years ago, when I moved in here, I had a vision of my jungle. I had a vision of my space. And I had, and still have, a very clear vision for my life. 👑
And I'm in awe that everything is as I imagined it. And every day I'm transcended by gratitude as I greet my jungle, with a soft smile every morning. (I promise you I'm not just a plant lady 🤣 I also love greeting my kids, friends and clients with as much pleasure. 😁). Today I am pervaded by a sense of deep gratitude 🙏
Gratitude for all the good in my life. For what I have. Kids. Friends and family. Clients. This space.
Gratitude for progress. You gotta recognise it. It's so important to look that progress squarely in the eye and celebrate it! 👑
Deep appreciation for growth in steps. 👑
Full appreciation that big dreams definitely do come to fruition bit by bit when you dedicate yourself to cultivating them. 👑
That creating the life you love is more than possible. No matter where you are now. 👑
Plant the seed. It's spring. No better time than now. 👑
Things are shifting again. Dreams, like plants, grow new leaves and outgrow their pots! That old sofa, with the little chocolate stain from my teenager's drink, sign of vitality in this messy jungle that is my loungeroom, is on its way out in favour of a new one.
Natural progression. Time to let go of the old and make way for the new as my jungle continues to thrive.
