When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.’ ~Marcus Aurelius

In the morning when I wake, as my mind slowly gathers its thoughts, and as the early morning “light” just starting to seep in, I have my mugful of tea and I meditate. .

Then I enjoy a good read and the quiet before the commotion of the day begins.Then I write.my journal. I get an inexplicable amount of pleasure from waking up this way. It didnt use to be this way. I used to get up late, rush through a grumpy routine before getting in the car and drive to work. It was dreadful, but that was my life, and I didn’t think it would change.I was wrong. I’ve changed my mornings for the better.

Its certainly now a privilege…this is my lovely morning…. how is yours? ……

💙 Rain 💙

Love…… the peace that comes with the rain…….

Love…… the calming sound of the rain on my bedroom windows……

Love……the raindrops that sits perfectly on the leaves.


Love……the smell of the rain.

🌞 A Brand New Day 🌞

Sunrise, a new dawn breaks.

Mornings bring a brand new charm, more opportunities to create heart felt memories.


Waking up to see another day is a true blessing. You are doing way better than a lot of people. Don’t take it for granted. Make it count.


Start by being grateful.


Waking up this morning, I smile. 24 brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Nature’s Gift

There is not a day went by when I am not in awe of Mother Nature.

I wake up everyday and marveled at what she has delivered.

I look at what surrounds me and I get all kinds of inspiration daily.


When you are close to Nature’s heart, everything will fall into place.
