Courageously keeping going

This morning I was up at 6.15, to get back on the horse with my morning yoga/meditation routine.  It was light at 6.15am, which was so nice and it wasn’t freezing!

This week is a bit crappy…and that’s not just me feeling that is it? I have been trying…really trying to pull myself up by my bootstraps and get my positivity head on, but if I am honest, I am finding it a struggle.

Springing into Spring?

The start of Spring hmmmm…are we springing into Spring? I’m not quite sure yet haha.  Part of me wants to…Spring usually offers such hope, new life, new beginnings, as we awaken out of hibernation.

How are you going?  I took big breath after writing that….but we are still breathing aren’t we. 

Well the weather this weekend was perfect weather for staying in and hibernating, wasn’t it. 

Wouldn’t it be cool if…

Here we go again, another week….I have to admit to be feeling a bit flat this week.  It seems to be taking that little extra bit of effort to keep going and to keep my spirits up. 

Oh to be in England in the Summertime…

You may have guessed from last week’s email that I am from England.  Sian, who owns Ocean Blue, is from Wales, but don’t hold that against us! :).  I have been here for nearly 12 years now and to be honest this time of the year is always one of the toughest for me, missing my other home. 

We can still explore

I was sitting this morning, pondering the week ahead and trying to summon up some positivity.  This Monday morning in Melbourne does feel harder than usual, doesn’t it.  I was thinking that we may not be able to travel right now, but we can still explore.

How are you going everyone?  Are managing to stay half-sane?
If, like us, you are in another week of lockdown, are you managing to find some things to keep yourself going?

It is understandably very easy to get sucked down by the negative vibes surrounding us in the world right now…believe me I have had my days when getting out of bed has seemed a challenge.
