For the first few years of this business adventure thing, that’s How I treated it - as a business seperat from my life. Which is a Lie Because it became my life. Another story...
But What 100% business focus left me with, was longing for creative time. I’ve always felt Best When creating, Anything. I’ve always wanted to try anything I could get my hands on, not Master it just Play with it. Becoming a self-employed person, I started creating courses etc. Which was fine, But I missed the hands on, just Because, elements of creation. Every mentor I’ve had has pointed out How it needs to be a part of my life. The last time it was mentioned I desided to listen. It’s like oxygen. .
My man Shakes his head everytime I haul out something new I want to try, And I have the Biggest grin. 😁 still working on it - But this little rock Swam my Way while on retreat this Summer, all I had was a Black pen, the fish and I made it work. #creativity#longing#augustbreak2018#stoneart#create#hands#peace#bliss#ease#creativetime#rockpainting#draw#fish
From Six: Surrender. "I want to let go. I want someone to hold everything, just for a while. Close the door. Put the world down. Give me the silence, the peace of it. No decisions to make, just the prayer of your body and mine. Nothing but you and me. Lead me and I will follow. Give me a space where everything is welcome. Where there is no shame, no judgement, no need to be anything. Let me fall into myself, away from everything. Nothing but flow, when there is no me anymore. There is just the wave."

Day 16 Longing - I never knew my father or paternal grandparents growing up. This photo was taken at my Christening, but by the time I was 2 my parents divorced. I met my father as an adult but was never able to reconnect with my grandmother. I have always had a longing to meet her, especially as it seems I resemble her more than anyone else in my family! #augustbreak2018#longing#family
Day 16 “Longing” a strong desire to have been able to spend more time with my Dad. He passed away when he was 39 and I was 14. He was a farmer. I have great memories. A month of mindfulness. #augustbreak2018#fotofemmes#longing
Caleb McLemore is today's writer and a new writer to the site!
This dude is seriously talented and we are so happy, proud, and excited to have him join the Forge & Flint team! "The Wedding" is a wonderful story that deals with the protagonist's loss, longing and catharsis as he comes to terms with losing the woman he loves.
We've also been talking to Caleb about doing something special in the future so watch this space... ________________________________
August Break Day 16: Longing.
I’ve a longing to stay curled up under the covers, a reluctance to leave my bed. (It doesn’t help when I return from circuit to find Hubby and the fur kid still peacefully snoozing away. And I do the 8:00am class so it’s not as if I’m getting up super early!)
I’m longing to travel again (it seems eons since Hubby and I’ve had some time away), to notbe tied down to the everyday routine, to relax and rejuvenate.
I’m longing for time - time to complete the to-do’s - not only the need-to’s but the want-tos, the like-to’s, the love-to’s. 💕

(EN) Unfortunately, in many times, the fact of going further may disturb lots of people, maybe because they think they would be the right ones or more qualified for experiencing such advance, but God is the one who bring down and make grow tall whoever He wants.
It is not matter of whom waited or worked harder, but a matter of having the right heart and motivations.
The fact of someone had been chosen for something doesn’t interfere or diminish the endless opportunities out there, so just be ready for yours.

(PT) Infelizmente, muitas vezes, o nosso avanço pode incomodar a muitos, que talvez possam pensar que eles seriam as pessoas mais dignas e adequadas para tal progresso, mas Deus é quem elege e quem abate.
Não se trata do tempo de espera ou de trabalho, mas sim do coração e da motivação corretas.
A elegibilidade de alguém para algo nunca vai anular a capacidade de elegibilidade dos outros, pois há infinitas oportunidades e possibilidades para todos, apenas esteja pronto para a sua!

#augustbreak2018 day 15: longing - I’ve been so longing to get back into the ocean and swim, and yesterday I did! It was so beautiful - sun shining away, water pretty cool at 14 degrees but so clear.
We see so many different sea creatures on our swims - stingrays, baby Port Jackson sharks, crabs, jellyfish and so many different fish including the elegant blue groper.
But yesterday we were swimming through thousands of little gelatinous tickertape-like creatures, strips of black dots in jelly. None of us knew what they were. We found out they are sea salps - chordates, so more animal than jellyfish. A researcher has called them “the funkiest little creatures in the world”! The jellybeans of the sea, they can grow up to 10% of their body weight in an hour. So that was an education and experience! Fascinating. I wonder how long they’ll hang around?

Um ótimo exercício para os cavalos novos é o cavalete, tanto na guia quanto montado, ao passo, trote e galope.
É normal um potro, enquanto está aprendendo a passar, fazer da forma errada. São como crianças, eles estão aprendendo, temos que ter calma e paciência para que possamos ensina-los corretamente. Na foto o cavalo Ultra Tech de 4 anos está passando o cavalete na guia, a imagem da esquerda de forma errada, saltando a última varinha, e a da direita da forma correta, calmo tranquilo cadenciado e ao trote
