Bank Holiday Monday is off to a gloomy start…

But are you focusing on the shadows the clouds are making or the light that manages to peek through onto the fields?

Do All Deeds With Love

20131018-180604.jpg

I find that any task I undertake that I love, does not feel like work. Instead, I look forward to planning it, carrying it out and completing it.

There are many things in life we may have to do in order to achieve a particular goal. However, isn’t life too short not to pursue the very passion that causes your spirit to lift?

Try to remember when you last felt inspired and then ask yourself, what did you achieve as a result? Did you use that passion-filled energy to do something great? Or did you package that inspiration and store it for ‘someday’?

Remember: TODAY is SOMEDAY</em and pretty soon you will only be left with 1 day.

The 3 Things To Be Successful…Happy Friday! xo

If you haven’t seen this yet here’s your Friday treat:

 

Happy Raksha Bandhan

A very happy Rakhsha Bandhan or Rakhi Purnima (in Bengali)!

Today is the day sisters tie the sacred thread or rakhion their brother’s wrist to symbolise her love for him whilst in return he pledges to protect his sister.

These days Raksha Bandhan is a day where brothers and sisters feed each other sweets (yes, yet anotherexcuse to eat!) and basically celebrate the kinship between siblings.

Rakhi Purnima, does now however exclude only children, like myself. As most of you know, I’m the subcontinent, cousins/close friends are usually recognised as brothers and sisters too. In fact, as well as tying rakhis on my male cousins, I would also end up tying them on my other cherished male relatives: my grandfathers and my uncles.

So today: Whether you are Indian or not, an only child or one of many:
Be grateful for your siblings. Not just those that you are related to, for we are all one. We, as people, are the same: we breathe the same air, we share the same biology and fundamentally, we all have a desire to love and be loved.
Extend a Rakhi, the bond of protection to allyour brothers and sisters today. You may realise you have more siblings than you once thought!

Happy Raksha Bandhan to all!
With love,
