Copying ain’t cute. It’s disrespectful to what God really wants to do through you. It is very possible to be inspired without stealing someone’s style, recipes, photo shoot concepts, logos, content, and...intellectual property. Want new ideas? Talk to God. I’m serious! He talks back but you’ll never know that if you don’t make an attempt to have a conversation with Him. Here’s a little secret from us Creatives. We spend more time reading books, alone time with ourselves, saying “NO!” to time wasters, and more time talking to God than anything else. That’s how you stay Creative. That’s how you learn to be on top of your game without being shady to any of your brothers and sisters in business. It’s downright empowering to implement your own ideas. Be still. Listen. Wait. Hear God speak. #listen#peace#stillness#creative#original#foodwriter
HUNKER DOWN // We'd planned all kinds of shenanigans this week of annual leave but it wasn't to be. Instead, we've hunkered down because between Peggy's recurrent tonsillitis, my ongoing ear stuff, ideas upon ideas, lack of boundaries, burn out, not acknowledging our limits and the worry about so many dear people close to us who are proper going through the mill, we're a bit kaput. We've napped, disconnected and connected, soul-searched, comfort eaten, dreamed, meditated, planned, decluttered, drawn, written, created, lit a fire, had long deep conversations and we've taken it so so slowly. And as always, the answers come, things sort themselves out and energy is restored. Not a jot of regret for this Summer hibernation, we needed it, ahead of what looks to be an Autumn of operations.

〰️ Very often people say: “just keep on moving”.... so what? Is life all about moving•moving•moving?... sometimes I’d prefer just to stand still, yeah why not? Everything moves so fast that having a little break of movement is soooo calming! I know we all live in different paces, and we all react to different stimuli, and there will be times when movement and fast reaction will be the best thing to do, but c’mon stillness [sssstttttiiiillll nesssss] what a beautiful improbability!!!
When the tasks are done, I often get a momentary rush of dread. "what do I do?!" The filling. The need to fill.
The silence. The stillness.
I know it well now, because this rush is my invitation. My invitation to lean in. My invitation to stay still. My invitation into the void.
I find the void is the most scary when I am staring right at it. Quaking in its vastness.
But the moment I step in, it knows I am on it's side.
And It's hard to be afraid of sonething you are part of.
Experiencing stillness this week through Zen Sunsets on the Lake.
The calmness of the water seeps into me whenever I come up here and I try to take it with me when I leave. Doesn't really work though 😀 so I try to just live in that feeling to make myself remember it later, when I meditate and attempt to get to a still, calm place.
When you feel stressed, get outside and look to the sky. It's always moving, always different, and reminds us of how big the rest of the world is and how how small our lives and experiences are.
Afterward, I always can breathe a little easier, when I return to work, home, or whatever it is I am trying to figure out.
Don't sleep on the benefits of nature, we don't know how much longer it or us will be around. Life is short. Fill it with the good sh*t.
Truth has to be said as it is. The moment you compromise, the moment you bring truth to the ordinary level of human consciousness, it loses its soul, it becomes superficial, it becomes a dead thing. You cannot bring truth to the level of human beings; human beings have to be led to the level of truth. -Osho
