Be like the squirrelThursday, January 21, 2016
A long, long time ago I was given an album which went on to become one of the few I knew inside out. One of the tracks always springs to mind when walking in woodland and I see a squirrel. Little Acorns is such a meaningful one.

Take inspiration from wherever you can. It's often the little things which can suddenly trigger a new thought or spark some motivation to make a change. The bigger picture can make us feel small, which in a way can be of some comfort. Watch the sun rise, watch the tide roll in, take a look at the sky at night and count the stars. It's peaceful. Take a closer look at things; frost on the grass, birds singing in the trees, the steam swirling from a fresh cup of tea.
Self care and kindness is important, take the time to do so, especially in winter.
