As I said…..

….. I thought Mondays lecture was really interesting….. and a bit scary, as there is nothing more terrifying, than when someone makes the point that you (people aged 40-50 in general) are becoming dull and flabby….. especially when you know it is true.

Here I am thinking particularly of love and relationship….. a mind opener is: that we all (more or less), get caught in the same traps: 1 the couch, 2 the tracksuit (camping suit)….. and 3 the slippers…..

And what happens when we have had the slippers on for to long? We our self becomes an old, (sour), retired and resigned slipper.

But how to avoid that trap?

I have been thinking a lot about love recently… all of its forms, its nuances and its power.

I don’t claim to know a lot about love, but I think I have learned a few things:

1. LOVING someone fully and wholly means loving them exactly as they are

2. Falling in LOVE sometimes feels like the best part… but it actually gets better

3. The most beautiful thing about LOVE is that we have limitless amounts of it

4. In its best form, LOVE is permission to be completely honest and vulnerable

5. LOVE is like a box of chocolates - it’s deliciously sweet

I hope you have a LOVELY day

Let’s do…..

 

….. a new “Delight Your Life” project….. chose an easy, possible kind of project….. a small thing to make your life more delightful.

When you make space in your life, you are making room for more delights, comfort, magic and love to enter.

Does that sound like fun? Want some more delights in your life? Yesssss! Let’s start! We can doooo eeeeeeeet!

Today’s “Delight Your Life” project is:

Throw out five items of clothing.

Does this sound a little scary?

Start with things that don’t fit, don’t look great, you don’t wear or you don’t feel amazing in!

This Monday, I decided to “spring” clean my cupboard….. and good, it was SO wonderful to do it. I ended up finding favorite clothes that I’d thought I lost, and brand new shoes that were perfect (but never used)….. just ready to be loved up.

So three big garbage bags of clothes were gifted on to people who could love and use them….. and I’ve now got a cupboard that is only filled with things I love wearing.

So anyway! It’s challenge time….. throw out five items of clothing. See where it takes you. And don’t make it into a big thing….. just do it!

…. and please report back…..

You can write about your progress on your blog….. you can check-in to comment here…… or you can write out your “Delight Your Life” goal on a scrap of paper beside you.

Love Lizzy

Let’s do…..

….. a “Delight Your Life” project together this week….. just chose an easy, possible kind of project….. a small thing to make your life more delightful.

When you make space in your life, you are making room for more delights, comfort, magic and love to enter.

Does that sound like fun? Want some more delights in your life? Yesssss! Let’s start! We can doooo eeeeeeeet!

Today’s “Delight Your Life” project is:

1. Make a list of five things that you do that you don’t like doing.

2. Today, I want you to work out a way to stop doing one of those things.

Maybe you could ask someone else to do it for you?….. maybe you could swap that task out?….. or maybe, just maybe, you could just stop doing it.

…. and please report back…..

You can write about your progress on your blog….. you can check-in to comment here…… or you can write out your “Delight Your Life” goal on a scrap of paper beside you.

Whatever you need to do to give yourself the support you need….. just do it.

Love Lizzy
