It’s been a while since I did a Monthly Voice but with that ‘back to school’ feeling thick in the air, I thought it would be the perfect time to resurrect them.

For those that are new to this little corner of the internet, the Monthly Voice is a place for me to share what we have been loving over the last month and some of the things we have been up to. This one is like a bumper bonus edition because I haven’t written one at all over the summer.

ABSENT

Creating is where a big part of my light comes from and is fundamental to my well being, and living a wholehearted life. It is as necessary for me to create and express as it is for me to breath in and out.  The very wise Brene Brown says “Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgement, sorrow, shame.” Creativity is an energy, a life force, it needs to feed into something - if it goes unused it doesn't just evaporate. If we're not going to allow it to flow into creation of some kind then it makes sense that it will fester and manifest in some other form. More on GeoffreyandGrace.com

Where did you go to?

I miss the light you set free,

Time to come back please.

 

I have been sitting at my computer for over 30 minutes now, typing without really saying very much. It’s like a muscle gone un-stretched. It feels a little weird and wobbly to be writing here but, boy have I missed it.

Actually, May and June were full of typing with the freelance writing work I’ve been doing (super thankful about all of that and I’ll let you know when the pieces are out) and of course busy publishing The Slow Living Retreat – which was great fun. Connecting with you all on here feels very different though. And now that I get started, it feels as though there is lots to say, like it has all been simmering away under the surface waiting for the opportunity to be released. Too much for one blog post that’s for sure.

ANXIETY MY OLD FRIEND

If you experience that surface level anxiety that just sort of lurks with you for the whole day, then you are not alone. Find out what helps me navigate an anxious spell...

Anxiety and I are old friends, it likes to come and visit me every once in a while. Even though feeling anxious is familiar to me, I am baffled by my need to worry each time. It’s panicky nature is smothering and I wish I knew the secrets to mastering it and banishing it from life for good.

THE SLOW LIVING RETREAT FREE E-BOOK

I am often asked about how we manage to live slowly. It seems as if people think there is some sort of mystery to it. However, I believe anyone can benefit from some slow living. As a lifestyle it can conjure up images of retreating to the country and growing your own vegetables, but in reality it doesn’t need to include either of those things. Sign up for your free copy of THE SLOW LIVING RETREAT

It’s been a while since I have posted and that is partly because I have been busy putting together The Slow Living Retreat. The free book is designed to help you slow down and reconnect back to yourself. It’s launching next week, so there is still time to join in and sign up to get your free copy.

I am often asked about how we manage to live slowly. It seems as though people think there is some sort of mystery to it. However, I believe anyone can benefit from some slow living. As a lifestyle it can conjure up images of retreating to the country and growing your own vegetables, but in reality it doesn’t need to include either of those things. Of course it is possible to live slowly in a busy city. No matter who you are and what your life is currently like, I am sure that by slowing down and becoming aware of those wholehearted moments in your day, you will improve your wellbeing and bring more happiness into your life.

MONTHLY VOICE: APRIL

 

Here is the Monthly Voice for April; what we’ve been up to and some things we are really loving at the moment. Plus why I am so tired, and what I am doing about it...

Well, I don’t know about you but April seemed to pass by pretty quickly in our house. And, so I find myself here again writing the Monthly Voice. Last month saw our kitchen renovations get under way, there was all the fun of the Easter holidays, and I was also busy with some writing work, and putting together The Slow Living Retreat  – which I am hoping will be finished by the end of May.

I actually only managed to post here twice throughout the whole month, and I feel like I have had my head down a bit and been really trying to focus on specific things. Even with the Easter Holidays, and less blogging, I am craving rest, rest, rest at the moment so I am trying to honour that and really listen to my body. As we all know, we are all pretty good at putting pressure on ourselves, so that is easier said than done.

Here is the Monthly Voice for April; what we’ve been up to, why I am so tired, and some things we are really loving at the moment.
