This week I have loved having a blooming good cry! Or rather, to be more accurate, what I loved was the transformation as tears are shed. When the body and heart are lighter, refreshed and ready to go on.
There has been a huge mixture of weather this week. Rain, wind, rain again and then wonderful moments of sunshine. This is what I have loved this week – those moments after the rain when the gloomy sky dissolves and the sun beams down.
For anyone joining me this week I have begun a weekly blogpost focusing on something I have loved each week.
A friend of mine, and an incredibly talented musician, has run some meditation webinars which allow listeners to meditate while she plays. Not really knowing what to expect and having never meditated with live music before I was amazed at how affected I was by the 5minute session. This has been the experience which I have loved this week.
So a big ‘thank you’ to Ayanna and if you want to check out her music and what she is up to here is a link to her website:
About two months ago something went very wrong and I lost a connection with almost everything both inside and outside of me. All my focus turned onto the painful beating of my anxious heart, tense shoulders and quivering hand which seemed to have stopped making the lines I wanted it to make.
Without knowing exactly where the impulse came from I decided to note down the things that I had loved each day. It could be something as simple as the feeling of a comfy jumper. It could be something more emotional and intangible like the sound of my mum’s voice talking to me over the phone. The sound of rain. A cake. A cup of tea. Coloured pencils.
Like threading on beads one by one to make a necklace I found that each small thing loved started to make something bigger.
Here is Week #1 – the first illustration of what I have loved this week.
I hope you will check in each week to see what I have loved next week, and the weeks to come!
