Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen, yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. 

// Bradley Whitford

It’s a New Year.

And I trust that you all had a most resplendent Holiday break. I know I did, even if mine was expended to the couch catching up on programs. Hopefully all that indulgent inertia has energised me for the year ahead!

I decided to alter my usual New Year rituals for 2016; one being that I erased the word resolution from my vocabulary, despite being a loyal devotee for some time now. The thing with me is that resolutions almost always fail within the very first few days of a new year. And I think there’s some kind of statistics out there that also confirms this is true for many of us. What I struggled to grapple with is why must we leave it for the start of a new year to enforce positive change within us?

Each and every single day is inestimable, something you begin to note more and more as you age. And while the promise of a New Year is an incredibly powerful and wonderful motivator we need to remember that each and every single day can hold such promise if you allow it to.

For me I went into 2016 with hope; hopeful that this year will be an efficaciously positive one. Uber abundant in experiences, laughter and love. Generous in regards to travel and not limited to places I’ve seen but to dreamy foreign lands, new and exciting adventures. Rich in health and happiness. More living in the present and being present and challenging myself to be better at both being a human and with my passions. To step away from my comfort zone and not permit fear to hold me back. And to simply appreciate and find gratitude in all that surrounds me.

And of course, I wish the very same for you.

May 2016 bring to you your hearts desires,


1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
