Fire dance @ Makawao 3rd Friday🤙
Are you overwhelmed by the demands of our workd?
I spent some time today listening to #TEDx
Talks . These short talks are so encouraging. In particular, I was lead to #PicoIyer
'The art of silence' .. wow ..wow ..wow ! (Google search)
He takes a look at the incredible insight that comes from taking time with stillness. In our workd of constant movement, and distraction, he teases out strategies we can all use to take back a few minutes out of every day or a few days out of every season.
Slow down baby, you’re growing too fast
Decided to spice my own life this week launching myself into a photo shoot after a full day on the office & a gruelling spin class just before I came back to start burning the mid night oil working on our catalog of spices for the speciality show in less than three weeks...everything is important and it’s not going to end here, so whenever possible slow down, reflect, capture, seize, grab a few moments to create lasting memories while you can...only one mantra in life...love & learn, tirelessly!! #passion #london #slowdown #photo #click @cliqqphoto

Summer night park dates 💙 Have to enjoy the sun while it’s still here and this little man is over here asking when preschool is starting again and talking about his 16th birthday so he can start driving 😂 Slow down babe stay 4 please ❤️😘
Hvis der er noget jeg har lært i denne uge, som jeg vil tage med mig, så er det disse ord! En af mine kunder havde været på en rejse til Mexico, Guatemala og Belize. Hun fortalte at de i Belize blev bedt om at “slow down”. Meget tankevækkende, ikk’?
Så det vil jeg gøre i weekenden og jeg synes I skal gøre det samme; sæt farten ned, tag det roligt og nyd livet! Vi lever i en stressende verden, hvor vi har alt for travlt i forevejen. Så slap nu af og have en herlig weekend 💗

I may or may not have only taken the tiny dog on my run today so I wouldn't have to go as far or as fast.
Turns out, it was actually just what I needed to do... slow down and enjoy being out. I feel like some days are just about getting everything done with my head down to avoid distraction. Who am I kidding, that is most days. Achieve! Make! Create! Get it all done! Today I did some stuff, but not all. I worked but didn't finish. I only ran at the very end because we were going to get caught in a downpour. Guess what? I thoroughly enjoyed it. That's the best part because if we are not enjoying ourselves (and I don't mean giving up responsibility in hedonistic abandon) then what's the point of the hard work? Tomorrow isn't guaranteed, so I will pencil it into my day if I have to- look up and smile. Enjoy the process while you can.
I needed this reminder, so I'm sharing in case you do too. .

Keep it 💯. I’m to modest for my own good, I’m to real for this media shit!! #slowdown #rns
Vi har begge sovet lidt uroligt, og hvad er bedre end starte dagen ved havet. Da vi stod der og mærkede vinden og lyttede til bølgerne, kom vi til at tale om en film Yoko havde set på Youtube med en havskildpadde der fik trukket en plastik ske ud af næseboret som den måske havde svømmet rundt med i flere år. Det gjorde indtryk på hende. FN anslår at der i 2050 vil være mere plastik i verdenshavene end fisk. Så der er brug for en forandring. Og lige i dag havde jeg min Plastic Change kasket på som er lavet af gamle plastik flasker, og som @superstainable
har produceret og sælger, i samarbejde med @plasticchange
- der jo arbejder for den nødvendige forandring. Vi aftalte at starte med at kigge på vores forbrug af plastikposer, og skifte dem ud med poser lavet af noget andet fx majs. Men det skal vi hjem og undersøge. #keepitsimple #slowdown #plasticchange #cleanoceans #singleusesucks
Travel. Make memories. Have adventures. I think when we are 85 we won't think about that flashy car we bought or twenty pairs of designer shoes you owned. But we will think about that time we got lost in our favourite city. The nights spent falling in love under the stars and all the beautiful people we met along the way. We will think of the moments that made us feel truly alive. And at the very end, those memories will be the only valuable possessions we own.
have a wonderful weekend 🌿

Upon rising, stretch and say. "I'm so grateful for this day and all the opportunities coming my way " . . . . . . .
I've been doing this recently and it's really helped me to signify the beginning of a new day.
Followed by water and my first cup of tea 🍵🌼 What is your morning ritual? .
TWINS | If a mum of one baby is exhausted, how do you think a mum of twins feels? They often won't have the luxury of allowing their babies to find their own routine, instead they tend to stick to a set plan just to complete everything every day: breastfeeding, changing, bathing, cleaning up, etc.
And imagine the logistics with two, just going supermarket shopping... i once saw a mumma walking from her car with two baby capsules on each elbow, and two shopping bags in each hand. I wonder how her pelvic floor coped?

Throwing it back to our first triple cuddle and a more recent one of some play time at Nanny and Grandads. The first pic is one of my faves and is the first time I held both my babies together after having Alba on the NICU Ward and Arlo with me where all the other Mummy’s and babies stay. Cradling both my tiny babies at 2 days old and looking down on them thinking; wow were these really in my belly at the same time, and; oh my goodness I’m in charge of two tiny humans😱. Not being able to hold or see your newborn straight away is one of the most heart wrenching things I’ve ever experienced along with the guilt that I had one baby with me and one all alone in a little plastic bubble in room full of strangers. I can only imagine how parents of babies who are in special care for longer periods feel, super strong, super human mums and dads out there 🙌🏻🙏🏼. I can’t believe how fast they’ve grown. It feels like just yesterday I went from being an immobile whale🐳 to being in a hospital room trying to figure out how to get two babies onto my boobs at once and waking the whole ward with a chorus of two duetting, screaming newborns😂. I’d go back and do it all again tomorrow if I could 💙💗

We’re at a disabled vehicle at the base of the Cape Coral bridge. If you don’t already know, you need to move over and slow down to 15mph under the speed limit for the safety of the deputy and the people involved. #itsthelaw #moveoverlaw #slowdown
Heel even tijd voor jezelf op een vroege festival ochtend.
I think I am just fully in love with this view. Approx 10 years ago I figured out I can calm down from any situation if I go somewhere where there is water. A lake, a river, a stream, anything. Just watching it move makes me relieve. Yesterday I got on a boat after work and it just surprised me how I've forgotten about this. Bkk boat in Budapest is pretty amazing in that sense you can use it as any other public transportation, yet, most of the people sitting on it were tourists. What happened to us? Everyone is in a hurry and we just don't realize how much we have? Okay, boats are slow but do we really need to run all the time? I will try not to from today.🤔 Anyway, boats are great. If you are in Budapest, don't miss it 💦

And once again I find myself engulfed by the intermittent health issues that come in and out of my life like gloomy storm clouds when I least expect it.
Yet every time this happens I find there is a lesson to be learned, and these lessons make me wiser as I flourish as a woman of this earth.
