SOULFUL May

petite-words-instagram-mayMay was a pretty special month, I didn’t have anything planned, nothing in particular went down but it was an amazing month of calm clarity.

Several things happened: I got outside a lot, taking in the gorgeous street art of Bristol (sometimes I forget how cool this city is!). I laid on the grass reading in the sunshine (good to top up the vitamin c) and I got busy making stuff, from trying out news paints to experimenting with smoothie recipes, getting my hands dirty ALWAYS gives my soul a good stretch!

I also cut myself a mini fringe which I never imagined would look good, but it did and I wouldn’t be without it now. I’ve also taken a step back from work, creating things as they come and generally going at a slower pace… because I’m always in such a beehive rush to push projects out and I can make myself crazed in the process. So taking time this month to invest in my mental and physical wellbeing has worked wonders.

This month I’ve also said good riddance to sugar and I’m not sure if my new found calmness has anything to do with that… we will see!

I hope you’ve have a magical May too!? Are we following each other on Instagram? Come and find me …..

Finally, each month I’m going to add a mantra in the name of self growth and all that stuff! So here goes….May’s Mantra :

Slow down, kick back,  breathe and take in the scenery because the ‘stuff’ will still be there when the sun goes down.

  1. Oh I love your new mantra! I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the calmer you is owing in some part to your zero sugar diet. I’ve noticed whenever I’m cutting back on the sweet stuff my moods are a lot less volatile. Here’s to a June full of calm clarity too! Thanks for linking with #DreamTeam x

  2. Sounds like May was a brilliant month for you! I love that you cut your own fringe. I need to get over to Bristol, I’d love some more street art in my pics! Thanks for linking up with the #bigpinklink this week.

  3. I really need to remember that mantra. Life gets so hectic sometimes and it overwhelms me and I tend to do everything at 100mph which then stresses me out. This has helped me keep perspective. Thanks for sharing with #GlobalBlogging

  4. Oh I love the idea of taking it slow, I always tend to rush work out the door because I get so excited about them coming to life! But they always turn out better when I take my time and allow the creative juices (sorry cheesy!) to flow. I want to stop eating sugar I feel like this could help. Thanks for sharing with #GlobalBlogging!
