Myrtles 1st Christmas

Christmas has arrived for our comfy little camper Myrtle.
Tonight she is smiling with all her lights surrounding her.
It's a bit hard to see but she looks really nice


This years Christmas tree is a lot smaller than what I normally have, but I love it.

Today I was reading the holistic magazine Living Now and came across an article that just jumped out at me and I felt I just had to share with you. It was written by Josh Langley, writer, author, illustrator and professional daydreamer. I like that one Professional Daydreamer.

Celebrating The Heart
   - Word and Pic by Josh Langley
 
Let the randomness of life fill your heart with joy, allow strange and bizarre things to just unfold and celebrate those heart-filled moments where you're moved by spontaneity and a sense of curiosity.
Step out of your "head space" and find the quiet warmth of your heart and you'll notice it's a much more enjoyable place to be. When you're in that space, the fear lessons, the judgement quietens and you're more able to be who you want to be.
 
Here are some simple ways to celebrate your heart:
Use your imagination: it's how we thrive in the world. Daydream, wonder, be curious, go exploring, go wandering. Don't be afraid to get lost.
Be Creative: express yourself in whatever way you know how. Take cooking classes, paint, draw, write, make a sandcastle, dance like a free range chicken, read a poem to a tree.
Love: fall in love with yourself. Don't go looking for love "out there". Start right here in your own heart and become comfortable in your own skin and mind. Remember to do things that bring you joy and that you love doing. Celebrating the heart is merely learning how to listen to it, trust it and follow it. It can take time; so be gentle on yourself and enjoy the journey.
