Sunrise walk with Pepper before the thunder storms start. We have 98% humidity this morning, so it was a slightly misty & warm start to the day. Depending on the weather, Iโ€™m going to pick all the crab apples and start on the crab apple jelly making, but as I type this, there is more and more blue sky appearing, so it might be a trip to the forest instead. Iโ€™m really aware of making the most of any good weather!

~ Birthday girl ~ . . My story โ€” and because itโ€™s good to look at how far youโ€™ve come in your own journey sometimes. And if not on your birthday, then when ... I went back to the newborn baby who felt afraid. I went back to the child who wanted to feel safe. I went back to the teenager who longed to be heard. I went back to the young woman who craved love. I went back to the adult who prayed for direction. I went back to the human being who blamed herself. For being abandoned, rejected and left behind. And I saw how unworthy she thought she was of safety and affection. How unwanted she felt. How alone she seemed. How she suffered in silence for so long... I looked into tear-filled eyes and gathered the newborn, the child, the teenager, the young woman, the adult and the human being I am and had been into my arms and with a love I knew was mine, I carried us all to the other side of pain โ™ฅ๏ธ . . The nourishment of pain is yours. Weave itโ€™s magic into your life. Let it cloak your shoulders. Let it help others. Let it open you up like a flower. Let it educate your heart and reveal your superpower. - Sparkle! -

The forest, a carpet of leaves (not this yearโ€™s leaf fall yet), the sound they make under my feet, the sunlight ahead, the way it twinkles from behind one leaf and then another and then another as I move along the path, the shapes of the trees, a bird suddenly taking off, the breeze rising and falling, this is the โ€˜chatterโ€™ I like on a walk, the โ€˜noiseโ€™ around me. I donโ€™t like to chit chat on walks when there is so much more to do in the silence; Noticing, detail spotting, appreciating, sometimes with photography in mind, sometimes with nothing in mind. I love walking, so great for introverts to go from multitudinous mental distractions to one slower physical effort ๐Ÿ˜Š - - - #gottalove_a_ #allwhatsbeautiful #ig_exquisite #fingerprintofgod #tree_magic #tree_captures #sombrescapes #roundtheaga #thefolkpr0ject #nature_perfection #allthingsofbeauty_ #mode_emotive #natureromantix #rsa_rural #nature_brilliance #rural_love #instanaturefriends #naturehippys_ #tree_brilliance #ig_great_pics #softones_perfection #the_gallery_of_magic #shotwithlove #fotofanatics_nature_ #fiftyshades_of_nature #moodmagic #everything_imaginable #heart_imprint #iheartnature

I very often work / study between 5am and 8am. I love the peace and quiet. Focus, ideas, solutions come easily. Itโ€™s the introvert way. Itโ€™s this introverts way. Iโ€™ve just stepped out into this beautiful morning light and a slight late summer chill in the air. Love that. This morning - yoga & tuning in to appreciate the small things before heading out for a busy day. Over many years Iโ€™ve learned that in order to effectively help others. We have first, to become the person able to do that. It does not come from what we learn in books or lecture theatres. Itโ€™s often not so much through the qualifications, degrees & doctorates we have gathered over the years. Even though we worked very hard for them all. Instead, It is WHO we are inside, consistently, intrinsically. It is what and how we are actually living daily - The unteachable - Indeed, it is not WHAT we give to others. It is WHO we are to others that is most effective. - - Wishing you all a gratitude - filled day and a beautiful weekend โœจ- - - #gottalove_a_ #allwhatsbeautiful #ig_exquisite #fingerprintofgod #tree_magic #tree_captures #sombrescapes #roundtheaga #thefolkpr0ject #nature_perfection #allthingsofbeauty_ #mode_emotive #natureromantix #rsa_rural #nature_brilliance #rural_love #instanaturefriends #naturehippys_ #tree_brilliance #ig_great_pics #softones_perfection #the_gallery_of_magic #shotwithlove #fotofanatics_nature_ #fiftyshades_of_nature #moodmagic #everything_imaginable #heart_imprint #iheartnature

Relax, rejuvenate, reset, enjoy, nourish, breathe, refresh. Sunday was about creating calm. It helped that it was a beautiful day. It was rounded off by watching the sunset at the river. Tomorrow morning looks set to start with mist and fog as the sun rises. Iโ€™m going to bed happy and Iโ€™m setting the alarm early (itโ€™s holiday Monday) in the hope that the forecast is right ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you for the sweet comments about Pepper, she will have a day of rest and relaxation tomorrow โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿถ - - - #gottalove_a_ #allwhatsbeautiful #ig_exquisite #fingerprintofgod #tree_magic #tree_captures #sombrescapes #roundtheaga #thefolkpr0ject #nature_perfection #allthingsofbeauty_ #mode_emotive #natureromantix #rsa_rural #nature_brilliance #rural_love #instanaturefriends #naturehippys_ #tree_brilliance #ig_great_pics #softones_perfection #the_gallery_of_magic #shotwithlove #fotofanatics_nature_ #fiftyshades_of_nature #moodmagic #everything_imaginable #heart_imprint #iheartnature

Mountain Mighty Mouse ๐Ÿญ ๐Ÿถ - Iโ€™m adding this to my gallery in admiration for little Pepper. She climbed 5 peaks and 2 highest summits today. Sheโ€™s still tiny for her age but sheโ€™s also resilient and so happy to be alive and wasnโ€™t really tired after todayโ€™s hike. She pretty much smiled all the way ๐Ÿถโ™ฅ๏ธ she also met lots of lovely dogs and people. She makes everyone smile as sheโ€™s cute. I met a couple of ladies from America who gave her ALL the fuss and attention ๐Ÿ˜ - - - #puppiesofinstagram #borderterrierpuppy #borderterrier #hike #hillclimb #nature #gottalove_a_ #allwhatsbeautiful #ig_exquisite #fingerprintofgod #sombrescapes #roundtheaga #nature_perfection #allthingsofbeauty_ #natureromantix #rsa_rural #nature_brilliance #rural_love #instanaturefriends #naturehippys_ #the_gallery_of_magic #shotwithlove #fotofanatics_nature_ #fiftyshades_of_nature #moodmagic #everything_imaginable #heart_imprint #iheartnature

pepper_and_sarah. A little farewell nod to the last of the barley for the year. The comb

A little farewell nod to the last of the barley for the year. The combines have almost finished their work and the fields are now full of bales. I could have added a little colour to this, but this is how the last of the barley looks now, a little faded, a little parched looking & weary. A reminder that the height of the summer is coming to close. The nuances of the seasons are keenly noticed when you live in the countryside. It reminds me of something I spend time reading about; Wabi Sabi : A Japanese philosophy that makes so much sense to me. โ€œWabi sabi is a different kind of looking, a different kind of mindset, โ€œItโ€™s the true acceptance of finding beauty in things as they areโ€ - - - โ€œEmbracing wabi-sabi is as easy (or as difficult) as understanding and accepting yourself โ€” imperfections and all. Itโ€™s about being compassionate with yourself as you are, and building on whatever that is โ€” not feverishly trying to rebuild yourself in order to pose as something else entirely. Today, appreciation of the things we have, people we love, and the experiences we have the opportunity to weave into our lives is losing value. Wabi-sabi represents a precious cache of wisdom that values tranquillity, harmony, beauty and imperfection, and can strengthen your resilience in the face of materialism. It gently motions you to relax, slow down, step back from the hectic modern world and find enjoyment and gratitude in everything you do. Put simply, wabi-sabi gives you permission to be yourself. Embrace the perfection of being imperfectly you.โ€
