The work that was happening on our home site has now stopped. Part of the challenge of having a builder that builds pre-fab houses is that a lot of the ‘fab’ happens in his workshop. Apparently walls and roof frames are being created somewhere and will be brought over when they are ready. For me this means I am feeling a bit caged. I want to see more happening!
It’s all good though, because now that it is raining, we can shift our attention to planting!
One of the growing things that I love the most is plumeria. I saw it for the first time when I was on the Caribbean island of Grenada and I fell in love. The scent, the delicacy, the whimsy all combined to make it a must have for the new land.
So today we met with a man who grows and propagates plumeria. As soon as we showed that we had a bit of interest, he started talking about all of the different options and scents and colours and sizes.
As I was standing there, I thought about the grinch’s heart – because mine own grew three sizes while we were talking to this man! As we were leaving, we apologised for taking up his time. He just laughed and said, ‘What else it time for? This is me!’
This is me.
How many of us can say that with such conviction? How many of us can smile with our passion showing and say, ‘this is me’? Everything about that inspired me.
We bought so many plumeria, we will be showered with blossoms in a few years, and I love that now, every time I look at them, I will be reminded to embrace and follow and embody my passion
Because when we allow our light to shine, we become such an inspiration to others, even when we don’t even know we are doing it.
What Else is Going On?
This is the last week to sign up for In Cahoots.
I sat down this week and made a video about the course and what it’s about. I hope you enjoy it!
Registration closes on Friday, so please sign up now!
I also have a new offering and a new way to work one-on-one with me. The new version of Magical Mornings combines my original course with a Skype call and the opportunity to do it as a three-day virtual retreat. It’s all of my favourite things, all rolled up into one! I also make a video all about it. You can see it here.
