Manically Organic & Mindful in May

One fine day in April as I tweeted my little heart out, one handle in particular caught my eye.  I don’t remember exactly how I came across it but with a bio that struck a chord I found myself following Mindful in May.  A ‘campaign combining meditation and contribution’, the idea generated a sense of instant awareness. 

With a busy life and lots of big changes I became conscious that I hadn’t been very kind to me of late.  The thing with self-preservation is that doesn't stop at the self; when we’re kind to ourselves it means we're in a better place to be kind to others.  As a philanthropist at heart I realised the recent lack of self-preservation quite simply wouldn't do.  In addition to being Mindful in May I’ve decided that I’m going #manicallyorganic.

I’ve heard all sorts of arguments for and against choosing organic.  But with a penchant for burning the candle from all directions and as a life member of #insomniaclub I'm up for anything that supports improved health and happiness.  Surely if it means putting fewer chemicals in and around our bods it can't be a bad thing.  So from the month of May I’m aiming to be #manicallyorganic and deliver it to you via a tweet or two.

Feel free to join in or share your fave little organic place or product below.

With love, LittleMissMelbourne xoxo

Swings and Roundabouts

People come and people go. Sometimes those who come into our life for a significant amount of time are those whom we may never feel close to at all. Other times, people may visit for only a brief period yet hold with us a deep level of connection or strong influence. There seems to be no rule in life and no given as to how long someone will be a part of our overall journey or the impression they will leave behind.  The person you’re closest with now might not be so in a month, a year or a decade - there’s just no telling.

Things happen in life which shift and change our relationships for us, maybe through a realignment (or misalignment) of perceptions or quite simply a case of individual paths traveling in different directions.  For a certain period of my life this made me somewhat sceptical as to how anyone can firmly rely on another when we have no certainty of where their path is going and for how long they'll be there.  Luckily for LMM, it didn't take long to be absolved from this insecurity, surrounded by an abundance of positive influences with no lack of insightful perceptions.

What I’ve come to learn is that people come and people go, but they always leave something behind with us.  Despite the quality or quantity of time spent as a guest in our little world, the encounters we have can shape or alter the perceptions we hold - even change who we are as a person.  We may not be conscious of it, but we also leave something behind when we enter the realm of another.  Like swings and roundabouts, we go round and round in life always getting something from others, while leaving something behind, ourselves.
