Great start to the day. Nourishing breakfast in a new cafe in Barnstaple @eatatblock (I will be back), catch up with a special lady I've been wanting to spend time with for ages @_rachael_hall All is well with my soul.
Sat in a cosy tearoom re-reading this beauty. So much of the work I do in the world is about purpose. Whether that be the purpose of someone's life, a business or life in general. Such clarity and momentum can come from getting clearer on our purpose but let's be honest, it's not always easy. We can put huge expectations on what it should look like and feel defeated if the reality doesn't match up. We can feel lost and confused and not sure on how to pin it down. We can find it easy to identify someone else's purpose we can help others but have no idea where to start on ourself. What has your experience been with finding your purpose?
Re-reading some Parker Palmer on the floor of the study as the sun streams through the windows and the wind blows a gale outside. Smiling as I remember it's what we feel on the inside that matters and forms our experience of life, not what's going on outside ❤️
This is a glimpse of the world of my 6 year old right now. 4 weeks ago he felt a desire to get ready for Christmas. My initial reaction was to say no, I simply wasn't ready for Christmas in mid September. But somehow I saw how important it was to him and realised how great it was to see him so determined to do something and in his own timeframe. For him that meant making a list of the 36 people and animals in his world for whom he wanted to write a card and give a gift. Then it meant counting the money in his piggy bank and working out how much he could spend per gift. Then days of thinking about each person and coming up with ideas, writing cards, making and ordering gifts and then wrapping them. He's completely ready for Christmas and along the way I've been literally wrapped up in all the joy and am feeling surprisingly festive 🎅🎄🎁
