The O.E: Finding our higher purpose.

My amazing partner and I find ourselves regularly having deep late night discussions about the world; what's happening in it, what do we want to do about it, and one thing that has popped up for almost years is: that we don't just want to live through life, we want to experience it, we want … Continue reading The O.E: Finding our higher purpose.

For the better.

This blog is currently in the process of evolving, now a host for my lifelong journey of working towards self-sustainability and learning to save this planet of ours. I'm just going to be real for a bit; 2017 has been a huge year for me, for our family, but it's been a really scary year … Continue reading For the better.

We plant the seed.

It's a massive responsibility, realizing just how much influence you have over this little human you created. Constantly watching yourself and trying to enforce positive routines, positive environments and habits. To be honest, I've started implementing these routines almost more so for myself. Nathan and I have never been good at routine, that's why we … Continue reading We plant the seed.

Gratitude 4 – Family

Deflated but elated.

If you follow my blog and read my posts you know that I stopped breast feeding about 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately, as much as it was out of my control, I still find myself feeling guilty about it. I have to constantly remind myself that I did what I could, I did well and I chose … Continue reading Deflated but elated.

Mindfood – The Current

Wednesday is usually hump day for most people but I am now officially coining it  ‘Midweek Mindfood’ (courtesy of my incredible other half) and what better to start this weekly ritual but to celebrate International women’s day by show casing a very creative and intelligent woman.

I would highly recommend that you head over to my beautiful and highly talented friends incredible blog : METAL AND STONE. Every single piece of writing has such depth and an admirable sense of self-acceptance and awareness. From descriptive gardening to positive mind maps that appear in one of her beautifully raw ‘rampages’.

You’ll leave with a much broader sense of mind and a sense of warmth within your being. Happy International Women’s Day!

Alexa.

The light reflection from a tiled surface, slick. Mind your step!

Flowing movement, the pull of gravity calling to collect in a dip most low lying.
So curious, water’s seeking of itself; to join, attract, become magnetised. What better than it, to flood, pool, engulf.

Inresistant. Completely surrendered.

Birthing and sustaining, allowing life to thrive. Adaptive to any and all conditions, never ceasing to exist.

The sound variety -

Rooftop raindrops pattering, crashing and rolling surf.

Gentle trickles, delicate leaky dripping.

Fine spray of mist, tumbling shower.

Boiling bubble, cracking ice.

Sizzle and steam, hastily evaporate.

Many qualities in water, it’s true. Symbolism abounds.

The sorrow of a tear’s roll, the filling of pain to overflow. The soft…

If a mother chooses to breastfeed her child in public she's bombarded with criticism, when a mother chooses to formula feed her child she's also bombarded with criticism. The single most unfortunate … Continue reading Stigmas of a Mother
