I feel so incredibly blessed, and so grateful.

For the wonderful things currently happening in my life.

It’s hard to even put into words, but I’ve been reminded recently of how wonderful the universe is, and even if you go through hard times (sometimes very hard times), there is always something better waiting for you.

This post by my lovely friend Nicole, on patience and right timing, also resonated with me this week.

In her post she reminds us “You ARE supported and well-loved, and there IS a magic and a wisdom to the way things unfold for us.”

I truly believe this.

Wouldn’t it be a fantastic world if we all fully trusted ourselves in every moment.  For me it would be a world whereby I really love myself and have the confidence and the belief in myself to be who I really want to be in the world.

"Where there is love there is life."  Stop, look around and see all the faces around you and embrace the love you have for them. Life is way too short to allow work to completely consume you and your life, we need to maintain balance or we wont survive long at such a heavy and fast pace.

No money, company or idea is more important nor greater than those we love and the love we share with them. Even friends are an important part of the balance we keep. We need our friends to help keep us sane and give us an escape from work and home once in a while.
