Hello Friends have I told you about the Stay & Learn Weekend we are having at Stanton soon called Grow Your Own Happiness? September 5&6 2015. It will be run by our mates at Happy Ground, Ivan and Danni. Turns out happiness is something you can learn to be. Isn’t that great? I have realised that how I’m feeling is more about what is happening in my own head than what is ACTUALLY happening around me and I can change how I’m feeling by thinking about things differently. For example, Garth and I had a discussion the other day about the weather. He said, ‘Awful weather this morning!’ and I was about to agree with him cos I was sitting in front of my computer and the fire only vaguely aware that it was cold and misty outside.

But I stopped myself and had a proper look outside. Yes it was cold with a heavy mist but BEAUTIFUL because of it. Sunny and clear is not the only weather event that we should called a beautiful day! There is beauty and enjoyment in all the rest, it’s just a matter of how you look at it. Sometimes we just need to stop and reframe our set views of the world. Our ‘soft’ autumn/winter mornings are gorgeous. And just look at Minty’s face. I got a soft little kiss from her this morning. Maybe she just sniffed my face but I reframed it as a kiss. x
