I’m so delighted to share the first little sneak peek at LivingLIGHTLY TeaV! I can’t tell you how excited I am. I’d love you to go & boil the jug, pour yourself a gorgeous cuppa’. I’ll be right here… are you all cosy? Fabulous! Let’s get Glittering.
In beginning my new chapter, moving back to Melbourne, creating my gorgeous Home, learning to Celebrate my little steps in Thriving Autoimmune, dreaming + scheming with Luscious Luminaries, breathing our Dreams of Holistic Health + Beautiful Business into Delight, and breath by delicious breath, creating our Luminary Sanctuary, I’m so overwhelmingly grateful.
Of course with all of this excitement + change I find myself succumbing to Busyness. To the the Tizzy! I forget to Breathe. I find myself Rushing. Wanting to Do More. Be More. See More. DELIGHT More. For LivingLIGHTLY to be More. More. More. I’m so beyond excited to share my Love. To Connect Luminaries in a magical network of empowered entrepreneurial genius, each of us sharing our Sparkle + Superpowers. Illuminating our World. I Dream of hosting Tea Parties, creating a Sanctuary for Luminaries to build our Beautiful Business’ together, over allergy-friendly cupcakes + endless Cups o’ Tea.
But My Body. reminds me, first in gentle whispers, increasing prods, then not-so-carefully-disguised concerned shouts, that I have pushed My SELF too far, too fast, too much. It will take another few years to rebuild my strength. Each day I must gently, slowly, lovingly nourish My Self. I must Listen to My Body. . Celebrate how far I’ve come. Every little triumph + change along the way. I need to learn to Savour the little steps I’m taking each day. I need release my tight grip on the the steering + Surrender gracefully to the Sparks of Serendipity that are now appearing every day, my Dream snowballing into reality more Magically than I could have imagined (or planned!). I remember that this moment is a Gift. It is all I have. And I choose to DELIGHT. In it. On it. Around it. Through it.
LivingLIGHTLY TeaV? Well, this is SO exciting! I’m collaborating with my beautiful Accomplice Janelle ~ a Video + Sound Production Genius ~ creating her Beautiful Business. We were so excited we jumped straight into setting up a mini production studio, a few lights, a shiny new tripod, equipment borrowed from incredibly supportive Luminary Loves. It’s the perfect place for us to learn + play + grow. And over the next a few days, the Tizzy took over. My excitement spiralled into Omigoodness-I-want-this-to-be-so- Perfect. My lovely Controlling Self made her surprise reappearance!
I am learning that my Controlling self, is beautiful. She is a protector. She is what has allowed my softer, more ethereal, feminine selves to flourish. Optimistic. Creative. Loving. Idealistic. Dreamer. Philosopher. Believer. She is what has allowed me to become a Designer, for her rational, focused demeanour grounds my creative spirit. I glimpse wisdom, the union of knowledge and compassion, because of her.
In Living Lightly I have created a beautiful world for myself, filled with love and challenge. So now my inner warrior need not be quite so vigilant. She can breathe. She needs a new role. So I dub her CEO of Design Detail, Routine and Big Picture strategy. Things my flightly, glitter obsessed creative self could never do.
Once I recognised her I looked up from my Highlighters + Plans. And Let Go. Scriptless. Not knowing what to do with the lights. A little tired from being spoiled rotten at my Birthday party the night before (having saved up a weeks worth of naps to stay out all the way until 11pm!). Unable to figure out the fancy sound equipment. Janelle + I giggled. And played. And tinkered away a gorgeous morning together. Dreaming about our Beautiful Futures which lay ahead, but so fully immersed in the Present, that the first cut of LivingLIGHTLY TeaV surprised us! It’s not Perfect. It’s Cute. It’s Fun. I’m thrilled. We have lots to learn + create ahead of us! We are so excited to share the first little snippet.
Because we’re LivingLIGHTLY.
I’d love to sit down for a cup o’ tea with you. You Luscious Luminary You!
