You are never going to believe this....... celery...I've had an obsession with celery this year i'm stil on 2 packs a week minimum! now although soul food encourages me to think about comforting rich tasting food stuffs my beloved celery has hit the spot this i've become a conoissuer as they change taste ..some not hitting the spot quite as much.At the moment i've a few packs of celery hearts and they taste lovely they have an 'earthy' overtone...i did have the odd ones that had that bitter taste they're not my favourite but i still keep munching! then there were a few sweet thirst quenching packs they were my total favourites and were availble in the summer months! I was a bit taken aback with my celery fixation this year and tried to find out what it might have in it that my body might be craving. I feel good when i'm eating it regularly and not soooo good when i miss it for a few days it's benefits with regard to the relief of 'Brain fatigue' is what i think it hits for me!

Prompt: Everything's OK. What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?

I have more than one moment here i think...sometimes things are hectic and going a little bit pear shaped! or not according to plan and then as if by magic something serendipitous can be someting like being late for an appointment/or a double booking only to find it wasn't on that day or one of the people can be feeling pretty harrassed or despondent about another long and busy working day and then seeing the sunshine radiate from behind the clouds on the way to work or between can be seeing a big glorious moon at 3pm.. it can be a kind word from a work colleague or an expression that indicates graditude from a client...those moments are not controlled but are such amazing feedback in every day life I love them.. they enable me to feel alive and feel the real world has hope and positivity! They are simple but i am a simple person who wishes to enjoy a simple non overscheduled life.
That is the discoveryi have made over the last few years and i love my life more since i discovered this! so i will carry on my life slowly and savouring moments in order to see the positive....and continue to feel inspired by those magical moments and I know my creative work will blossom as a result of this.

creating a vision board...
1. Gather the necessary supplies. Magazines of all genres, glue, markers, pens, cardboard in all sizes, scissors, water, music, snacks
(Yes, you're going back to Kindergarten for a few hours) (Note: I have made massive vision maps and travel-sized vision maps that I carry around in my bag. Also, if you want both you can always scan a massive one in and carry the printed version.)
2. Put the magazines in the middle of the room. You get an hour to cut out any image that speaks to you. Inevitably an article will catch your eye that you want to keep. That's good. Cut it out and put it to the side. Don't engage it right now. Focus on cutting out images that resonate.
3. Once the hour is up, take a break. Get some air. Drink water and then get the cardboard and paste and markers.
4. Assemble your vision map. Don't be afraid to glue things that make no sense. Pretty images, frightening images. Doesn't matter. If it speaks to you, put it on there. I've seen all sorts of maps - those with a lot of white space, those (usually my own) with so many images I run out of space and have to start pasting on the back.
5. Share with the group what you've created. Why a particular image speaks to you. What you see yourself doing over the next year, five years, ten years.
6. Have your map laminated. Refer to them during days when you don't know what you're doing with your life (we all have them).
7. Note: a good moderator will keep judgements to a minimum. Even when you share an "example map" it's good to let people know theirs will look nothing like yours. They are intensely personal.
8. Note: add a photo of yourself to the map - will help you really visual yourself living this life

Prompt: New name. Let's meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?
I love this idea ....mmmm i think i'd call myself Larissa something a little bit different with a gentle vibe to it ! i don't really know why ...i just like this name!
