Share the love


What's better than to kick the weekend into gear with a dose of lurve. Had to share this beautiful proposal I spotted amongst a collection of top wedding blogs here.

Catch the spark...

...and before I could blink, Friday is back on my doorstep! A week whirled by with its usual bits and pieces to keep me busy with an added extra dash of wonderful reading, blogs, and thoughts. This blog, one of my bookmarked favourites, ignited that inspiration and lets face it, confidence, to post away at something I've had sitting around in draft for some time.

It's all about that sparkle within. Dreamy, fluffy stuff right? Yup, it is...but I mean it in the most down-to-earth, realistic kinda way. After catching Oprah's last Hurrah as The Queen of daytime talk shows, I was quite seriously moved. Her show (I must admit I was never a regular viewer) had nothing to do with planes rolling into the studio, car giveaways, or loaded with the usual Oprah vocals. Instead she stood centre stage delivering a simple message with some serious backbone. The delivery was  quite something. It was all about our passion in life and how essential living with this spark within us is. By living it, she said, is when we make the difference we were set out to achieve. Her words and encouragement to pursue 'it' (whether it makes us millions or not) and shine on our very own stage got me thinking. I am and always will be (I can't imagine why not) driven by my passion - whether it be the people in my life, the things I do, what I believe in.

I had a moment of deepest gratitude for my blessings (universal offerings, whatever your beliefs may be) to firstly HAVE a passion let alone the opportunity to grab it by the guts and PURSUE it! Don't know about you, but I can't think of anything better than to live a life filled with something so great it hurts...the fulfilment, that is. So, my point? Albeit a little wishy-washy, as Oprah said it's all about knowing what you're meant to be doing (and doing it) to be happiest, focused and most successful. You can then make a true difference, whether you touch millions, a handful or just one with your 'light'... Whether or not I got the message across, I guess the main thing I was dying to say was how wonderful and powerful that little thing that makes us giddy can be - passion. Have a wonderful weekend!

Cheer up buttercup...

I don't know about you but when the drizzly, dark days of winter settle in for a good few months I have to keep these less-than-chirpy feelings at bay. Today was a piece of cake thanks to this wonderful blog and a quote to kick my butt into gear. Enjoy your weekend! I hope it's nothing short of amazing!
