What is Love?

What is love? Somebody recently asked me this question and I thought it might be a good topic for a blog post. One can feel love for people, places and things (we all know how much I love Bedgebury) but love for another human being is certainly the most complicated type of love. People are…

The Love of my Life

Bedgebury means the world to me and when I was told that there was a book going to auction full of original drawings from Bedgebury in the 1850s I knew that I had to have that book. I drove to the auction house with the full intention of buying that book and walking away with…

Balance and Harmony

Happy new year everyone. I hope you have had a good Christmas with family and friends. I know it can be a difficult time for many and I am saying a prayer that this year brings you much joy and happiness. I have been extremely busy over the last few months with work but I…

Why?

I took this shot of Camber Sands yesterday. There is something about the ocean which is so peaceful. I have woken up this morning to the horrible news that there has been another terror attack in London last night. I am so sad. Sad for the world, sad for our children  and sad for each…

The Power of Nurturing and Intuition

For the last three weekends I have worked with my friend and we have planted flowers all around my house. I feel like my house is surrounded with love. I have this incredible sense of joy each time I look outside and see all the little beings that I am responsible for. By nurturing them I…

Mind, Body, and Spirit

Talking from Experience

Having lived my own personal brexit, I was shocked last Friday when I saw that the UK voted to leave the EU. I have come to terms with it now. I accept the democratic vote and feel proud of the bravery and courage it took to stand up for what the majority decided was right…

Food for Your Soul

If you know me you know my chicken noodle soup. It is a staple in my household. It is filled with lots of good things, but most of all, it is filled with love. The recipe for my chicken noodle soup is mine. It is so simple. In fact, it is not a recipe at…

My Journey into Happiness

I sit here today acknowledging the responsibility I have to myself to be happy. For me being happy  means being free to live my life the way I choose and being in peace. Doing good and feeling good is the key. That is what makes me tick. Being kind to others and feeling grateful for…

The Joy and heartache of Christmas

Christmas is the time of year when we are forced to look at the quality of the relationships in our life. Some of us are very fortunate and are part of a solid family unit but not everyone is so lucky. It can be very difficult to face up to the reality of broken families…
