A very warm and heartfelt welcome to my new website and blog. I’m so excited to be starting both.
I’ve been practising mindfulness for quite a few years now and it’s become one of a few non-negotiables in my life. A couple of years ago, it suddenly struck me that I would really love to share it with and teach it to others. The word sharing is important to me here.
When I was a child, I must admit, I didn’t really like sharing. I just thought it meant I went from having more of something to having less. And any sharing I did, was usually pretty unenthusiastic… My dear grandad would come and visit us every Monday. Every visit, he would leave behind one large Mars Bar to be shared out between my mum, my dad, my big sister and myself. Carving it up was quite the weekly ceremony and anyone who has siblings or small children can, I’m sure, imagine the squabbles my sister and I had over who would cut it, the size of the pieces, who had the chocolatey end bits…
I’ve now learnt that sharing from a place of lack or worry that there isn’t enough, never feels good.But sharing from a place of giving and a belief that the more we give, the more we connect and the more we all receive, makes so much more sense and feels so much better!
So that is what this blog is all about. Sharing. Sharing ideas and thoughts. Sharing a conversation. So please do comment below and join in. The more who share their thoughts and ideas, the better the conversation. Always.
So once again, a very warm welcome. I’m so happy to be here.
