How have I been celebrating life?
I pulled off a brilliant birthday party for a bunch of seven year olds.
It was me and nine Monster High wannabes (ever notice how quickly parents scuttle away at the party drop-off?)
With a little planning and a huge lowering of personal expectations, it was ease filled and so much fun.
Ridiculous, uninhibited, belly laughing fun!
(Those kids sure know how to have a good time).
– We ate petite sandwiches, fruit kebabs and dinky chocolate dipped cake pops.
– We pinned the horn on the unicorn, played musical statues and went ‘Ganghnam style’ till we fell on the floor with laughter.
– We ditched the party lolly bags in favour of a small thank you gift.
Best fun I have had in ages.
You know how it sometimes takes being with kids to be a kid again?
To shake off that cape of responsiblity (that often feels more like shackles when you’re a parent?)
I also skived off from work.
A client free day and a hubby not working mid-week. That’s a sign right?
There was morning meditation, a coffee date with a new friend and an intimate champagne and candlelit lunch with my man.
Just the ticket.
Playing from the heart
It has been a week of playing from the heart.
Less pushing. Less commitments.
More passion, more fun.
It’s been a week of tuning into the heart and being called to do more for my relationships – with my family and with myself.
I’m so happy I listened. It’s been exciting and moving.
What about you?
