Woke this morning feeling a bit tired and irritable – which is very unlike me.
I think my brain is a little exhausted.
Hmmmm – I thought -knowing Marc this could be interesting – and it was.
As I read though I found that my brain, body, heart and spirit were all interested and ‘listening’ as I read the short and sharp article.
As I read I asked myself – what would be my mantras? – the sweet words I’d use to still & energise myself. I wrote them as I continued reading (no – not at the same time! I’m good but not that good).
After I’d written them down I sent Marc an email thanking him for the article and showed him the Liz Mantras I had written. I challenged him to write his mantras in under or exactly 30 words. Still waiting brother …
The mantras should really connect to your core – who you are and what you believe – what’s important.
Once I wrote mine I saw that they were a kind of personal value branding – kind of slogans for Liz. I had fun.
So here are my Liz Mantras – in exactly 30 words. I cheated a bit and used + instead of ‘and’ – ah well.
Be open + respectful + present
Passion moves dreams
Liz is fab
Stillness + silence
Speak + live your truth
Believe in others
Lolling is bliss
Why don’t you see if you could write you personal mantras in exactly 30 words?
I still feel tired but no longer irritable. Reflecting and writing the mantras soothed me and brought me back to what I love. The day to day niggles disappear.
The photo below was taken by my young nephew Caleb when I visited his mum (my sis) Siobhan, Bridie (his sister) & Troy (his Dad) in Oz this year. I gave him a digital camera and he took to it like a pro. He has a natural eye.
I chose this photo of me because it’s fun and no gloss (notice the fab shiney face). I had been playing dress ups (the tiara is not my usual daywear) and imaginations and making stories with Caleb & Bridie. And this would be one of the first photos caleb took – I love the wonky angle.
Have yourself a lovely day.
Me? I’m going to take it real easy.
