Look What I Made

Having realised I needed some fun, last weekend I took a leap and did something I’d been planning to do for ages… I got creative and went along to a screen printing workshop run by the fabulous Zara Emily at her studio above the florists on Worle High Street. The image on the t-shirt is a likeness of my logo. Zara’s workshop was the best fun I’d had in ages – the session included a fab studio full of lots of interesting looking goodies, good training by Zara, similarly minded, friendly and fun loving souls to work and laugh along with, a nice cuppa or two and to top it all, Zara’s husband had made cakes – yippee!!
So the pic’s not showing my best side but I’m pretty pleased with the t-shirt which I wore at a wellbeing workshop I’d organised the next day! Thank you @zaraemilydesigner 😊

What Is Being Present/In The Moment

Einstein said “I never think of the future, it comes soon enough.” Tolstoy said “Now is the most important time because it is the only time that we have any power.”
When you’re present, your head is no longer full of past or future scenarios, you’re here, focused toward the person you’re interacting with or on the task you’re doing. You can ‘tune out’ distractions from your surroundings. When you’re present, you spend less time analysing and labelling things, people, situations … you learn to appreciate your world more and you become less judgemental.
Staying present can be a bit tough … so remember not to be too hard on yourself if you find you slip back to reflecting on past or future scenarios. Aim for consistency rather than perfection – over time, slipping back into old habits will lessen …
