While out on my walk this afternoon I stopped to chat to an elderly man I often see, then said goodbye.  As I walked away I saw a little Indigenous  girl of about 12 coming along on her scooter.  She politely stopped her scooter and said hi to the man for a moment and asked him how his day was, then headed off again, and while passing me also said hello to me.  It was just so gorgeous I smiled all the way home.  If only the whole world could be like that beautiful little girl and make a difference in the day of every person we come across.  You NEVER know what one act of kindness can to mean to someone. 
This is the song which was playing in my earphones as I witnessed this...so fitting....VISION. 💛 (look it up online...The Black Sistaz) #vision #humankindness #kindhearts #bekind #onepeople #bigmountainband  #blacksistaz #reggaemusic #wisdom #messagesongs #musicwithmeaning #standupforwhatsright #positivevibes #spreadkindness #learningfromchildren #smilemoment @bigmountainband  @theblacksistaz

Am filled with a sense of gratitude today. 
Have just a weekend meeting so many members of my Chiropractic family from New Zealand at a beautiful and stimulating conference. I have been reminded of the power of connection and of the amazing gift of being part of this profession. I am at the same time reminded of how much work there is yet to do, however I have a renewed sense of passion to do what it takes. 
I’m also filled with gratitude for being on this life journey with my best friend. We began our journey together at week 10 in the first year of a five year course and 29 years, several practices, two awesome sons,25 years of loving marriage and a multitude of challenges later, you are still the person I want to share everything with. We share our passion to make a difference and are each other’s biggest fans. I never take this for granted and feel so blessed every day. 
Humbled by the blessings in my life.

Love writing for @mornpenkids Spring edition out now, link in my bio. I talk about what parenting isn’t 🤔. Have you ever pondered this?  #consciousparent #morningtonmums

When this magical being says, “Mama, can we just make a smoothie, sit down to watch Sesame Street & paint our nails?” Done. Because these moments with this young being are worth each and every second. I pretty much constantly find myself whirling around in survival, to make sure other beings in my life are cared for, so remembering to pause for these small but extensively grand moments make my heart and being content. #learningfromchildren #latergram [image: a tender young being with some gold glittery nails holding an all different fruit smoothie that’s a deep purple]

Do you ever really stop and look into your child’s eyes? 
I did this with my daughter the other day and within 5 seconds I had the full understanding of what had -even unknown to herself- been bothering her lately; She missed true connection with me and with her dad. When I spoke those words, (Do you feel that we are there, around you, in the house, in your life, but we’re not REALLY there with you?) she burst into tears and hugged me. 
We haven’t stopped staring since. And smiling.

Today is ‘Be Positive Day’ and I am thinking about how children try things again and again until they can do it, having not yet learned to give in.

I talk lots to my clients about continued sustained effort, challenging them as to whether they are continually focussed on business growth. Watching my daughter learning to pedal forwards and not backwards and then really practicing once she’d got it right reminds me that I need to keep doing the same - try, try again, master it, keep doing it! .

Farmers market bounty!! Seasonal eating reminds me of when I was a kid and we ate from our garden.

I observed one of our little fellas today to realise this magical being decided to do splits some time ago and once he decided he practised nearly every single day! There was only one vision in front of him - splits! He has never even though about what he needs to give up, movie or time with friends. Instead he kept taking steps, stayed 
committed!⭐️
I wanted to do splits and I am still wanting to do splits...do you see the difference in here?😊
It seems we can surely get anything we want! Believe in it and do what is necessary, what is possible and suddenly ohhh what has happened??? Suddenly you’ll be doing what’s impossible... 😁 #kidsaremyteachers #learningfromchildren #theyseemtoknow #littlegurus #familygoals

We teach by showing, by living beside... by being vulnerable about the things we loves... and our children and those we lead by example (and position) will follow us (or choose not to)... our choice is what we want to pass on.

Today I am challenged with the great responsibility of my choices, my loves, what I pass on. And blessed to watch some of the things I care deeply about passed on to those I love (both my children and those I lead. 
This is my littlest love attempting to mimic my love of crochet! #littlelove #leadbyexample #mumlife #bevulnerable #bealeader #crochet #learningfromchildren

Morning journaling is such a big part of my life. Just a simple matter of starting the day right for me. Some days it’s brief and to the point, others it’s meandering and musing about my life. Some days it has swearing in it and some days its beautiful flowery prose. I don’t judge it, I rarely read it back, and it’s for no one but me. And after I’m done I close them, take a deep breath and think, now I’m ready for the day!!

Being clear in what we want - as adults, we are sometimes too polite, don’t want to offend, and don’t say clearly what we want.... A 3 year old child on the contrary can be very clear! This way! Now!

It’s important to find the right mix and find a way that works for you - we still need to be polite to each other. But we also have to be clear when there is something that really matters.

Are you clear enough?
Do others do what you ask them to do?

Let’s find out - in a horse assisted seminar!
Now available in Dubai and Abu Dhabi - contact me for more information.

#weilandjohn was having a hard morning so he said he needed “God time”... he honestly came out of the room like he encountered Jesus. He was loving and kind and had written an apology note for the sitter. I just went to lay Marty down for his nap and found all of this on Weiland’s bed... NOTHING in the whole world melts my heart or brings me greater joy than my 6 year old pursuing Jesus on his own 😭😭 #nevertooyoung #faithlikeachild #learningfromchildren #thankful #raisingaleader

Sometimes life is messy. Things don't go where they are supposed to. It's not all nice and neat. I may want everything to be just so - neat and tidy, both literally and figuratively. I'm learning to go with the flow. I learn from my grandchildren. (This is one of them. Isn't he a cutie?) They don't care about the mess. They find the joy. They take what they want and leave the rest. A good lesson for me.

When children play, explore or just relax, they do so with complete mindfulness - uninterested in how they look or who is watching them. They just immerse themselves in what they are doing and enjoy it. There is a lot we can learn from them. #enjoylife #carefree #mindfulness #life #health #mentalhealth #learningfromchildren
Glorious morning to head out to farmers market. Love that I can walk there.

Watching a child move from moment to moment, effortlessly feeling every ounce of joy, fear, anger that the moment has to offer.. it really puts into perspective how distracted you are. Put down your phone and feel this moment. 😉

L O M B O K  Even though we all felt sick that day it turned out to be such a special memory of our trip to Lombok. The kids of our heartwarming guest family at #greenhavenhomestay and our boys were playing together so well with nothing but stones and a football. If you want to donate to the people affected by the earthquake you can go to @pelitafoundation and check out the link in their profile.

I love this picture of my little Lucille. The light shining down on her, her naked wildness but calm tranquility, most of all her imagination. 
There was a chew through in one of our irrigation lines, hence the puddle. Luci and I headed out to fix it, I grabbed some extra line just in case. That then became her fishing pole and the puddle her pond. 
I love that the kids just play with what’s around them. They love their toys too, but can always find some sort of entertainment, especially in nature, when  allowed to use their creativity. 🌞🎣⛰

Blessed to have these beautiful girls as my daughters. Always teaching me more about life everyday.
-
I never knew such passion or pain before having them.
-
Witnessing their zest for life, inquisitiveness and ability to live in the moment leaves me dumbfounded.
-
When did we lose these incredible attributes that we all yearn for now?!
-
I’m a bit melancholy as tomorrow i say goodbye to them for 10 days as we part ways to go on separate adventures.
-
Learning to live in the moment with them.

My little dirt lovers! It is fascinating to watch them enjoy where they are, be in the moment, and experience it to the fullest. They jumped in bounce houses and on our way to the car they climbed these dirt mounts! I want to be like them be present in the moment and enjoy where I'm at! .

Have not been posting of late as have been busy clearing, cleaning and creating. Some days it was the less sexy jobs like loading up a skip!! Others it’s been creating brand new administration systems, and others writing content. But it’s all just gotta get done!!

Sometimes, instead of correcting others or challenging them... we can recognise the wisdom within them, their innate buddha-nature or divinity and leave it as it is a while. This is especially true when we don't actually know the answer. We can accept our not knowing, not assume that the other person is right either but leave space to wonder.

We can let ourselves and our assumptions, our superiority or experiences be challenged and in the grace of it, discover greater truth and understanding of our own nature if not the nature of existence itself.

I sort through hundreds of clips a day. And every once in a while, one really strikes me. "Beautiful." The framing? Sure. The focus? Crisp, just like I want it. But the story!
•
When I watch this clip, it makes me question how often I'm okay with just being a kid. Just learning, just growing. No expectations or worry of what grade I come out with. The number of times this kiddo goes back to make that "n" right blows my mind, probably not realizing that in some ways it seems to be getting worse everytime. But it's not the appearance he's concerned with, it's the message. "This is an 'n'. I'm still learning, but I made an 'n.'"
•
I guess the story it whispers is that it doesn't matter how many times we have to do something over--how messy it gets before we finally know what we're doing. In the end, if you have an "n", well it looks like a job well done. No purpose in counting the number of rough drafts it took to get there. First time or forty-seventh time, an n is an n.
•
I watched this clip probably ten times in a row before moving onto the next. Grace abounds, even in the hand of a second grader.

But it's not the appearance he's concerned with, it's the message. "This is an 'n'. I'm still learning, but I made an 'n.'" • I guess the story it whispers is that it doesn't matter how many times we have to do something over--how messy it gets before we finally know what we're doing. In the end, if you have an "n", well it looks like a job well done. No purpose in counting the number of rough drafts it took to get there. First time or forty-seventh time, an n is an n. • I watched this clip probably ten times in a row before moving onto the next. Grace abounds, even in the hand of a second grader. • #storytelling  #learningtowrite  #learningtheabcs  #crayola  #kidshandwriting  #sony  #sonya6300  #a6300  #stl  #stlouis  #missourikids  #midwestkids  #teachourkids  #learningfromchildren  #obliviouswisdom 
I sort through hundreds of clips a day. And every once in a while, one really strikes me. "Beautiful." The framing? Sure. The focus? Crisp, just like I want it. But the story!

Mindfully peeling an orange - the teachings of #thichnhathanh in practice #learningfromchildren - amazing barefoot shoes by #tikkishoes affordable and allows her complete freedom of movement - thoroughly recommend! #mindfulness
My 5 year old made me stop and look at these beautiful hydrangea and then insisted he wanted to take this picture... 🌿...we were on the way to friends, running late, feeling a bit stressed... but by stopping when he wanted to I saw the world through his eyes and totally relaxed into it; the stunning blue colour, the insect crawling across, the perfect formation of the petals. It took my 5 year old to make me stop just for a moment and appreciate the beauty around me. Our children can learn so much from us, but it never ceases to amaze me how much we can learn from them too 💕

C H I L D L I K E ... How gorgeous are these little ones dancing together at a wedding in beautiful Italy!? 😍 #melt

I love watching children dance... such freedom, honesty, and uniqueness in their movement. As we get older, we can be more concerned with the thoughts and opinions around us, and allow these to impact on the way we interact with things... like dancing, for example 😉 Looking at these little ones makes me think about the #joy and #beauty in dancing freely and openly... Is this something you do? Or are there things that inhibit you when it comes to dancing?? We would love to hear from you in the comments 👇 Helping you to dance more is what we're here for... so please let us know your thoughts!

Enjoy your Friday! May we be more #childlike as the opportunity to dance arises 🤗

Day 15 (I fell behind again mostly due to overthinking yesterday’s topic) of the @essence_homestead #julyphotochallenge for #summeronthehomestead The topic was #lessonslearned which I thought about off and on all day yesterday, and ended up falling asleep without posting at all. Of all the things that came to my mind that I could’ve chosen - especially since we always seem to learn everything the hard way - I kept coming back to one thing. My children. My children who find joy in the simplest parts of life and who live in each moment without concern of the past or the future. My children who naturally find the good in every situation. My children who remind me every day how I need to live my own life. We think we are teaching them, but really children teach us so much just by looking at the world through their eyes. #learningfromchildren #photochallege2018 #ouryardisafarm #kidsarewise

My sweet niece watched her poppa drive away for work this morning. She was so sad and I couldn’t coax her to come back into the house. So she stood on the front porch for a few seconds and then gently knelt down and cupped her head into her hands and quietly cried in Child’s Pose. My heart broke and melted all at the same time!! 😥💔💕 Awwwwwww!!! .

She has been here for a few minutes and I am not rushing her to move. This is such a testament to me of why this is called Child’s Pose. .

Bālāsana (Sanskrit: बालासन), Child's Pose, or Child's Resting Pose. This pose calms the brain, helps to relieve stress and fatigue, and is often used as an opportunity to focus inward and find peace and serenity. 🙏🧘‍♀️ .

As my practice continues I freely and more mindfully see yoga everywhere. Yoga is not the poses, but what is within the poses. It is a natural foundation of movement, life, focus, breathe, openness and a way to find stillness, connection and solitude. Becoming aware of this is powerful and connects you to a greater force within yourself. It is so awakening. ❤️
.
As I begin and end my yoga classes in Child’s Pose, it will now mean so much more for me...as I teach and as I practice. .
What a sweet little example of yoga and self mindfulness this adorable little niece of mine has taught me this morning! ❤️ .
N A M A S T E 🙏 .

Often people refer to moms as “losing themselves to motherhood,” as if you are no longer a whole person after becoming a mom. But this is untrue for me; I’m not losing myself am I becoming myself. Motherhood has infiltrated my life and these experiences have helped challenge me in ways that I did not realize I needed to grow. I am growing -becoming a more patient, caring and loving adult.  I strive to be a better human to help teach my children kindness and compassion by following my example. I push my boundaries to teach them to push theirs. In return for all that I do for my children, as their mother, I gain more of myself and become more of who I’m meant to be.

When learning new things (like how to eat appropriately) sometimes a 4 year old has to help you out. Traveling internationally can be so beautifully humbling. Enter it with a heart that’s willing to learn. #childrestoration #traveling #learningfromchildren #behumble
I’ve found myself looking down a lot lately...for fear I might miss something wonderful. ❤️

Always be yourself. I’m learning the gravity of that sentiment from my children.

Our children are our greatest teachers. I truly believe this. Last week’s lessons that stood out for me: Madeleine (age 5) spending about an hour in the bath, relaxing, singing and washing her dolls. I pretty much never allow myself that amount of time to unwind at the end of the day and seeing how zen my littlest was before bed really stuck with me.
•
Then, there’s Portia (age 7). At the playground, she played for an entire evening with a bunch of kids and when I asked her what their names were she replied, “I don’t know. I didn’t ask”. It amazes me how kids will come together to run and laugh and enjoy an evening without even knowing someone’s name whereas, we adults will know someone’s life story by the time we’re out of the grocery store lineup. And that’s an unnecessary weight to add to our already heavy mental loads.

When your eldest baby is asleep on the lounge, and your youngest won't get off you, you may as well have an early dinner, made up of leftovers and a quick freezer trick for Lara's favourite, spring rolls. I'm taking the lead from my little ladies and having an early dinner and bed time on this winter night, sometimes kids know best.

She is so free. She is free in all aspects of freedom. She lives in a free country, yes. But her soul is so free. How many of us can say that about ourselves? Are you TRULY free? Jesus died for your freedom, so you could be YOU. He died so you could be exactly what He called you to be and not look back or think twice. She is so original and does NOT care what anyone else thinks of her. She dresses how she wants, all because she’s free in herself. She says what she wants, because she is confident in herself. She loves sooooo deeply and unconditionally....... and it’s because of her freedom. You cannot love and be exactly all you’re suppose to be if you don’t break your chains and bust out to your own freedom. Don’t hold back exactly who you are. Be confident and BOLD. It doesn’t matter who is watching you, talking about you, making fun of you, joining you, or leaving you. You won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but the truth is the right people will love the cup of tea you are.... and you are good tea friends!

Sitting here aggravated by the stressors of the day. Overwhelmed by the obstacles life decided to throw at me today and then I took the time to look at life through this little mans eyes. Brought me to the conclusion that what I think of as stressors can be relieved with some kickball. #learningfromchildren #raisinghimright #positivethoughts #persistence

These steps lead me to a cafe here in Edinburgh. As I sat and sipped a tea I heard a conversation at the next table between a young boy of around 10 with his grandparents. So amazing to hear him sharing his life with his elders with such honesty and love. And to feel and hear the unconditional love they had for him. And what really struck me was how much he was teaching them and how open they were to learn from him. Truly beautiful and humbling to be witness to this. #hopeforthefuture

Got to hang out with this amazing creature today. Those who know me well know that I’m not at ease around birds but couldn’t resist this. Always been fascinated with owls.

Found this beautiful little church and graveyard on my walk today! So powerful to read the headstones of those who have passed. Some of these had dates from the 1700’s!!! Blessed to travel and experience different things.

This was one of our kids favorite stops on our road trip. They loved all the bright colored rocks and being able to run free in the desert🌵. Our kids teach us to be a little more carefree and just enjoy the moment as we so often forget that as parents and working adults. .

Monkey bars. Challenging oneself or hanging on for dear life? 🤔. Tonight I could argue that I’m challenging myself, I’m putting myself out there in 🙋‍♀️front of a room of people with a goal to make some positive changes in their lives. 💫 To inspire, to grow. For me, part of Parenting is about showing my children to grow through watching me grow as a mother and as a person. I’m excited 😊. Like hanging from those monkey bars I’m pushing myself, I’m trusting myself and I’m ready 👊🏻 #creatinghappyhealthyfamilies #parentcoaching

Taking a moment to look up and see the woods from a different perspective! Lying down to trace the trees and skyline. The children loved this activity - definitely one for a dry day! 🌳

Being a mom does not mean to be perfect 🤪🥂 Something I learned in the last year is that I cannot Plan much anymore, and for an analytical planning freak 🤓 I am this is one of the biggest challenges. Accepting new life, its boundaries and changes makes you #free.
.

Never have I thought I would want to have an Instagram account, and never ever I thought I would post my child’s pictures in it ✋ Never I thought I would enjoy being at home so much, never I thought I would be so unstable in my emotions 🤪😍😂🤬😱😤😍🤪 That’s life...and it is so good to accept it as it is and moreover to accept yourself as you are...❤️ .
—————
Проснулась в 6:30 утра в субботу от слов «мама-папа-мапа» - Алис зовёт нас с ее комнаты! Сейчас всего 10:30, а я уже ... обрадовалась дню 😍 , сходила по магазинам с кричащим ребёнком на руках 😤, попила кофе при этом пытаясь накормить Алис 🤪, поиграла с ней 🦊, уложила спать и ... тишина... обычно в это время в субботу я ещё спала, потом долго завтракала с мужем на балконе ❤️❤️❤️ А сейчас я тупо хочу в душ и спать (но выбрать надо одно, потому что она проснётся черёз час - если повезёт).
.

Прелесть материнства - в его нестабильности, изменчивости, спонтанности, сумасшествии! Многие мамаши боятся признаться себе в том, что они изменились, что хотят иногда улететь на луну 🌕 и зарыться там в какую-нибудь ямку 😂 Но когда признаешь свои слабости становишься свободной и счастливой ❤️❤️❤️
