I just had to pop that picture up for you all to see. It quite literally made my day receiving it from a friend this morning who is on holiday somewhere gorgeously hot right now. Even though it is struggling to reach spring here, this stunning picture is just a reminder that there is always summer happening somewhere on this beautiful earth of ours.
So, I was all set to post on a different subject this week and then a little mishap got me to thinking in a completely different direction.
I hoiked myself off the sofa in a dash to answer the phone last night and was not paying attention to the fact that one of the kids who had been curled up beside me had left behind a blanket coiled around my legs. As I lurched across the room to answer the phone I was flung down onto all fours at a heck of a speed and only just managed not to smash my head on the floor in the process (did I mention our floor is solid stone ?!). I would have laughed my head off at being a total idiot except it was such a near miss that I felt quite shaken up if I am honest. Anyway, it got me thinking that if I wasn’t so flexible from the yoga I do then maybe the outcome would have been a bit more dramatic.
So ladies just when you are wondering if those daily sit-ups or that regular power walk or yoga class are doing you any good, give yourself an almighty great pat on the back for keeping at it because those activities which we repeat daily and weekly, that we all take for granted, are the foundations of what makes us resilient not to mention all the other health benefits we gain from keeping active. And, as it was International Womens Day earlier this week this is just a reminder that you are all sensational. Have a great weekend. xo
Here’s to strong women, May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them. #imandaily
