I hope that this new month finds you well and blessed in ways that stir deep joy within.
I’ve felt a sense coming full circle this full moon. June was a month of wild adventure, spontaneity and living from a place of openness. After a few weeks of doing so during our travels to England and Wales, I’ve come back with my heart bursting at the seams.
There is so much to be grateful for – New experiences, fun times and the opportunity to explore different lands.
But mostly, I’m thankful for the meaningful connections made with people – friends both old and new, and family, especially family. My husband’s family live abroad. As a result we don’t get to be with them much. So, having that family time and meeting quite a few of my in-laws for the first time was really special. To this day, I’m so blown away by the amount of love I felt, the acceptance I received from all of them and the treasured memories we’ve had the opportunity to create.
My experiences on this trip reminded me of something else too. That is the power of keeping an open heart when connecting with people. Too many people live in lonely worlds where their relations with others may feel fleeting and empty of meaning. You never know how you could touch someone just by reaching out and taking an interest in their life. You also never know how they may move you too when you allow room for real connections to form.
Now, back in the reality of my life and still beaming with the enriching and transformative touch of my holiday, I’m finding ways to integrate this residual essence into the experiences I create moving forward.
Something tells me July will be just as beautiful a month. I am hopeful and look forward to what unfolds along the way.
How about you?

Welcome home. It is so lovely to see your words here and feel your beautiful, warm, generous energy. I’m glad you had such a great time away. It is so hard when families live in different countries from each other. Thank goodness for modern technology, that we can keep in touch. And that we can meet kindred spirits from all over the world who otherwise we’d never get to know.

Thank you Sarah! As usual, your kind words touch me. Indeed, we are fortunate that technology connects us and keeps us close to those who matter.
