Hi Happyness Hubbers!
What an exciting day it’s been! Today saw the arrival of a friend of mine from the States so I have every reason to be feeling seriously chipper!
It was a spur of the moment trip arranged just a couple of weeks ago – we met via social media last year and hit it off straight away. There’s always the uncertainty of what someone will be like in ‘real life’ as opposed to online, but hey, it’s the modern way so we took the plunge.
Well, I can tell you, it was like meeting up with my oldest friend! What a fabulous day.
Being a total anglophile, I wanted to take her to somewhere she’ll never have been before so we ended up at Bletchley Park, where they so brilliantly cracked the codes to win WW2.
On our way round, this quote was up on the walls. It put the biggest smile on my face and thought it was perfect for us all in here, trying to shine a little brighter in our corner of the world . . .
Once I got home tonight I was able to take some time to do today’s meditation – I chose the 10 minute audio due to my brain being over-run with mischievous behaviour and wanting to pop open the prosecco, and I can’t tell you the difference it made. I wish I’d opted for the longest one.
I am very guilty of letting busy life get in the way of taking the time to meditate and today has proven to me that I must make it a priority. I can honestly say I feel instantly calmed. In fact, I’m sat writing this in the quiet of my lounge while the chaos is going on on the other side of the door and I feel completely relaxed. I walked in here feeling like I didn’t have time, that it probably wouldn’t work and I was so wrong!
I will be making the time to do the meditation at the start of my day tomorrow and see how it affects my mind.
This feels lovely and I can’t wait to see what else this project brings.
Here are my three gratitudes for today x
