As Smooth as it Gets

Standard

😎Welcome to the land of the Fruitilicious: a healthy breakfast smoothie, that tastes like pink!

Start with some frozen raspberries, a few frozen strawberries, spinach (optional) banana, avocado.

Add a dash of honey, or pure maple syrup

image

And some coconut water (or filtered tap water).

image

And whir the frick out of it. I got some pretty funky colours along the way.

Add more water slowly to get the right consistency.

And voila. Kreamie Chilld Fruti Rassberi Miks.

The thicker consistency with frozen fruit gives it a cooler, more refreshing hit. Try it with a spoon!

Nom..aste

Today I’m grateful for my health.

I have a healthy body, fully able to walk,  run and cycle my ass off whenever I wish.

I’m blessed with the ongoing ability to get to and from places all over, without the need for assistance or extra effort.

I’m free of dis-ease, able – bodied and have nothing holding me back. I’m far more fortunate than others who may not possess such health, and as such I will continue to feed my body clean, nutritous food. And treat it to daily exercise and activity.

In turn it contributes to the health of my mind. My overall wellbeing is fantastic and I couldn’t/shouldn’t ask for more. I’ll continue to work at achieving inner peace, for the good of myself and the world over.

May all beings find the strength to overcome any obstacles, mental or physical, and continue to worship their bodies and mind.

Today I’m grateful to be blessed with full health, and may you all be, too.

Love and light ✌

Today was an unrivalled feeling of gratitude,  for our one and only, the irreplaceable; Mother Nature.

I’m grateful for the birds chirping outside my window at dawn (or when I decide to rise).

I’m grateful for the canal banks and all its natural glory; butterflies, dragonflies, ducks and swans, stork, trees, bushes and shrubs… nettles, regular annoying flies that stick in your hair and dive into your mouth while cycling.

Though I suppose it’s actually myself invading their space with my bicycle and speed… so I’m grateful I’m allowed into their space.

I’m grateful for the sun beaming down on to the back of my neck. And for the breeze that whips my hair back.

Mother Nature will never ever leave our side,  no matter how much we take her for granted, or abuse her. Even if she’s beaten down and stripped of life through winter (or pollution/construction/war etc), she will come back fighting. She’ll take back what was always hers, still offering our disloyal race a comfortable, nourishing home. And she always will.

Namaste 🙏

A simple, well-paid job

I use the term ‘well-paid’ loosely, since we all know most of the population are underpaid in the grand scheme of the world…. shat on by greedy bankers and slave driving corporations who’d have you work for free if it were legal…

But in terms of my situation in comparison to other remedial jobs out there, I’m extremely fortunate and I know this.

I earn above the minimum wage, in a warm environment with its own duck pond outside. I’m able to feed myself daily and keep a roof over my head on less than 20 hours a week (just).

I have the option of buying shares at a reduced cost and thus making money back from a greedy corporation. Amongst other perks of working for a multinational.

I understand I’m a hypocrite, supporting the structure of everything I despise. But I’m grateful for the CHOICE.

I’m grateful I’m not in danger where I work. I’m grateful I have fantastic people around me when I’m there. And I’m grateful for all the different people I get to speak with and build relationships with… cos sooner or later there comes about a special one, with which a bond is formed and although we never see each other or likely speak again… We leave a mark on each other.

The last customer that made me feel this way, said I’d “restored her faith in humanity”, and that was a real blessing.

One love.

Good friends.

Today I’m glad to have such a fantastic group of peers. We’ve known each other for many years now and have developed strong bonds.

The power of positive energy being transferred and exchanged between humans willfully and gratefully is extraordinary. Today, I honour the universe and my Self as One, for providing me with such rich experiences of love and friendship.

Peace out

I believe in the universe and the light that encloaks it. I believe in all that is good.. thus, all that is god.

I believe love overcomes evil.. and therefore overcomes the d-evil.

I believe in the power of human intention, the capacity to ‘create’ at free will, any world we imagine.

I believe in compassion, and the shared desire for mutual respect.. the simplest of actions, and expectations . I believe we all want the same thing.

Peace, an existence free of suffering. Easily obtainable if we can all simply remember and realise our potential.

May all beings be released from suffering. May we all emit love and light to infinity.. and beyond.☆

5 fulfilling fings I gone and done in 5 weeks

Standard

Once again the demon of procrastination has embedded itself into my being, writhing at my fingertips, convincing me that creativity exists but only as an impervious venture.

Through its relentless clutches I’ve yet again withdrawn from writing, or even drafting. Not one word has reached the paper (or screen) in the past six weeks or more, and I’m left feeling oppressed, indisposed and unfulfilled.

Or, I’ve just been a lazy twat again. Either way, my Hippy Van has been neglected, as has my poor cerebrum.

So where has this hippy been? Fighting the crime of injustice in the streets of LC? Standing up for human rights at various protests across the country? Offering my spare time to aid those less fortunate…?

Alas, I’m afraid to admit, only within the confines of my mind-computer. Another way to describe it would be in my daydreams. But I’m confident my self-discernment will allow me to progress sooner rather than later. Though one could argue that’s been my hope for quite some time now.

But I do have some things to bring to the table, which I’ve engaged in during my time AWOL. Bare with me, as I think when such activities/experiences finally evolve to their destined fruition, my absence will have been felicitous and righteous.

So, you gorgeous strangers who have given your precious time to read this, here are 5 constructive things I’ve done in the past 5 weeks:

1. Stopped smoking weed

Byebye smokey laundry day :(

That’s right, I finally broke up with Mary Jane. I’m clean 4 weeks yesterday and some of that misty, nebulous mind-fog is starting to clear. Replaced by an incandescent gleam, one that I’d almost forgotten could exist.

Don’t get me wrong, Mary Jane is the one true love of my life and I miss her dearly everyday…. but for now at least, I have to steer clear. SKUNK bares too much restriction upon the intellectual capacity (and I did miss that part of myself). Also, it was neccessary to clear my head for a while in preparation of number 2, which is…

2. Done training for volunteering

It took a few weeks to complete, but hopefully from next week I’ll be spending my two spare days a week helping ‘disengaged’ youngsters gain some qualifications and self belief. To be honest, I am struggling as to whether I’ll be able to support them fully with entering the ‘world of work’, since I’m so disillusioned by the entire system… but my greatest intention is to instill some confidence and self belief into them. Make them remember (or in some cases, realise) that they have worth. That the world is a place they can fit in and be accepted, despite what (fucked up) past issues may have contributed to their lack of self worth.

3. Rebuilt the bridges with my BFF

The Yin to my Yang, we fell apart a little since 2015 hit. But neither of us really left each other, and now we’re stronger than we ever were. And I can finally function again.

4. Revealed my darkest, lifelong secret

To my BFF, the only person I’ve ever divulged this information to. And what a huge weight off my shoulders… to sum up, some bad shit happened when I was very young that I repressed for almost 25 years. Now I feel I can breathe far easier.

5. Almost reached level 32 in Destiny

image

OK, so the last one isn’t that constructive (depending on your perspective)… but I have met some great new people within the social spaces, improved my confidence making new friends and unlocked some awesome new gear… which I’m extremely grateful for.

Of course, the PS4 merely serves as a distraction from the despondency that I felt was my life… rather than let lame reality encroach me any further, I made an impulse purchase and immersed myself within a virtual reality… but then, who says what is ‘reality’, anyway?

I’m pleased to say, just writing this has created a fresh perspective on my ‘life’… deep breath in, equally deep breath out.

Namaste, and peace to you all. ✌:)
