The Value Of Stillness

Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself. Herman Hesse.

Driven by technology and countless other distractions, many of us are so busy – doing instead of being, that it is easy to lose sight of ourselves, of what and who is truly important. The busyness can easily overtake us, if we let it.

In the daily craziness we’re living in today, it’s more important than ever to occasionally find a quiet time and a space to step back and “catch your breath.” Whether it is a walk in a park or in a garden, sitting at the end of a dock at the cottage, or on a quiet balcony, stillness calms the soul, fosters creativity and restores clarity.

Listening to the stillness within you, the essence of who you are keeps you connected to your true self and helps you stay real, at a time when reality and authenticity are so often found “missing in action!”

A heads up: Taking my own advice, I am embarking on a brief sabbatical to listen again to my stillness and will return towards the end of September with some exciting news about the next phase of my journey. Watch this space for all the details. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

A Rocket To The Stars

Maker – a person with the courage to create and share pieces of their heart with the world.

a-rocket-to-the-stars-rocketman-drew-simmie

By now many of you have seen the movie, Rocketman, which has been playing at theatres everywhere. It’s the story of Elton John’s climb to international stardom.

But it is much more than that. It is about what it takes to live life according to the dictates of your own heart, sometimes with very little support and encouragement, from the word go. It’s about choosing to be the person you were born to be, singing your own song, instead of  humming along to familial and society’s song sheet.

Rocket man is about courage, resilience, doing the hard work, and against all odds, never settling for less than you know you are.

The cynics would have us believe that life is just one long cliche and when it’s over, it’s over. But they are wrong.

Occasionally someone, like Elton John, comes along to remind them, and all of us, that there is a great mystery to life and nothing is more sublime than the human spirit.

Stay True To You

In these crazy times, it is so easy to get distracted.

be-true-to-yourself-drew-simmie

Running from one thing to the next, you can become so focused on the outward aspects of your life that you can easily lose sight of the bigger picture. Don’t let that happen.

Life isn’t about living up to society’s expectations or acquiring more stuff or meeting your goals and aspirations.

And it’s not about what you say, think or do.

It’s about who you are.

Connected with your consciousness, listening to your heart and staying true to you.

No matter what.

Believe You Can!

Believe you can and you’re halfway there. Theodore Roosevelt.

Whether you are thinking about building upon what you are already doing or starting out in a new direction, you can be sure that there are going to be changes. Change is the new currency today.

Change is never easy. It will take determination, hard work and discipline, but if you really want it badly enough and are willing to give it your all, there isn’t a better time than today.

Start with wherever you are and with whatever you have to work with.

And never stop believing  you can.

Spend Some Time In Nature

There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature. Henry David Thoreau.

Connecting with nature, in any of its forms, is important to your health and well being. It helps to reduce stress, sooth your spirits and sharpen your senses.

Few of us have the luxury, as had Thoreau, when he went into woods and spent two years in a solitary cabin on Walden Pond, contemplating life and what he was going to with it; but we can, occasionally, find a quiet space that affords the opportunity to spend some down time with ourselves.

It could be a quiet countryside location, or in a park or a waterside location in the city, anyplace where you can get away and, in relative solitude, spend some time in nature.

Plugging into nature affords you the opportunity to set aside the daily pressures, catch your breath, reflect upon your blessing, and recharge your batteries.
