Beloved Flower Lover,
London is bright with sunshine and we are preparing our autumn colour palette. We love what we have been reading these days. So much is about how this is a great time to re-adjust our energy so we can experience happiness from the inside first.
A friend was talking about how his parents in Jamaica had been farmers and they would always keep back 10% of the very best seed at harvest time to replant. He said, he would invest in himself in the same way. So he invested the seeds of what ever he harvested from the previous summer, back into himself. It was therefore a time of love.
With all of that. This is a good time to feel good about the vision of your life now. This is a good time to give thanks for your talents, skills, and gifts. Life provides us all with a time in point to give thanks for our life achievements, especially in the face of challenges. The opportunity to be happy first come from our choices to be the change we want to see.
Robert Holden, author of ‘Shift Now’, talks about research into happily married couples. He describes their findings of a major study with over 2500 couples. Those who stayed together happily reported that they had already been happy before they had got married. So they had not gone into the marriage to make them happy first. They had found ways to feel love and happiness within themselves first before they got married. The researchers were surprised. Essentially the study found that they took that into the marriage. So in essence the study pointed to ‘how’ to be happy first. We can’t neglect that. What did they do inside themselves to join up inside of themselves to keep them whole. We can’t ignore this study. What education did they recieve to know how to do this?
Self care is really the investment we are invited to consider at this time of year. What do we do now ? We invite you to share with us your stories of being, ‘already happy’.
Love from the team
The London Flower Lover
