Sharing some New Year Inspirations…

Untitled-1

I have to admit that I am not feeling very inspired now we are in the UK on a visit. It has been almost a year. I am feeling sunshine deprivation. The incessant rain and grey skies depress me. I feel more alien here than ever before and I dearly miss Portugal. But, as I sit in the back of our beloved van writing this – I know this is just part of the journey.   “New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among…

What I have learned from 5 years authentic blogging?

Photo-on-24-11-2015-at-15.05-bokeh-3-2

  Years ago when James said he was going to build a website for my artwork and that it could include a blog if I wanted, my initial reaction was; I didn’t want one. No way! Firstly, I didn’t think I would be able to think of anything to say, and secondly I couldn’t imagine who would want to read it anyway. I didn’t think I would dare to risk sharing with enough honesty – therefore, what would be the point? And, would my writing standard be accomplished enough to actually publish it? But, I put my worries aside, did-it-anyway…

How to make the right BIG decisions…

Photo on 2012-09-12 at 15.41

Let me make one thing clear- this stuff isn’t easy. For me, making decisions is really really hard most of the time. And, I am no expert and probably use far too much energy making my decisions at the moment. But, I am still learning and I am a perpetual work in progress. This blog post is about what I have learned so far in my on-going quest to be able to make all my decisions with EASE and with HONOUR. Living a nomadic ever changing existence means we have a ton of little (and BIG) decisions to make every-single-day….

How to solve the five biggest challenges when living in a van…

IMG_0983

From an early age and before I ever lived in a van; I have always found myself very curious about what it would actually be like. I of course romanticised it with my rosy coloured spectacles. Gypsy art bus roaming around Europe. Free-spirited lifestyle, away from convention, with hippie-chic flowers painted on everything! And, it is WONDERFULLY  free and I LOVE our nomadic life. But, there are inevitable challenges and that is what this post is about. I share my five biggest challenges and what I do to solve them. Shower facilities I need a bathroom to shower and wash…

Five awesome confessions I am celebrating today!

IMG_0358

We all know that in life we have difficult experiences and joyful ones. Often, it seems, we can slip into talking about the difficult stuff and people can relate easily and we all commiserate together…. BUT, what if it felt as natural to CELEBRATE the good stuff??!! I have few people in my life that I can do this with where it doesn’t feel like ‘showing off’ or ego stuff. Just experiencing pure happiness and simply wanting to share it. It’s not that I think our ego part isn’t necessary. I do. And where I used to sit it in…

The personal experience of journals and sharing my inspirations…

Photo on 2012-09-12 at 15.49 #2

I recently took part in an on-line woman’s retreat hosted by Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici. I seem to be doing these (unplanned) a couple of times a year. They are quite wonderful, and also intense and it takes me a while to absorb and integrate all the stuff I have learned. And, to be honest it’s very personal work so, I haven’t really thought of sharing it before. But, some (most) of the women I am discovering are so INSPIRING and wonderful that I feel I simply must. Today I share the first of these. Maybe some of these tools that…

Learning some difficult lessons…

IMG_3088

Moving forwards on many levels… Lots of life lessons learned in the past two years since choosing a nomadic lifestyle. Some enlightening and joyful and some challenging and painful. I repeat the mantra… ‘I am calm, I am safe, I am loved AND I am learning,’ everyday. If I mess up, which I invariably and regularly do, I ask myself; ‘what can I learn from this?’ Rather than, ‘why did I do that?’ I think I have written about this before… Moving forwards into the soul I wholly am and not giving value to a little squeaky ego part crying…

Left alone in Lisbon and other happenings…

IMG_0794

I can’t remember my last post but I do know it’s been a little while since I have updated anything here. Having just returned to the south coast of Portugal to explore some of the quieter beaches in the Algarve and Alentejo regions, we are taking some time out just for us. To regroup, check in and clarify. Some people may think this sounds crazy since they view what James and I are doing as one long holiday. And, indeed, I can understand this perspective. And… it does feel like a wonderfully joyful way of life for us because it…
