How I plan to change the world.

I've always known I wanted to do something great, to influence people around me to want to be better, greater, happier. I've slowly been finding myself throughout the years of young adulthood, now a mother and still a moderately young adult; I now know that I don't want to sit idly by in this life … Continue reading How I plan to change the world.

Motherhood – How it’s changed me.

I like to tell myself that I am essentially the same person I was 7 months ago, but the truth is: I am a vastly different human to who I was. I now know selflessness, how it truly feels to put another being's needs before my own. The biggest change seems to be my thought … Continue reading Motherhood – How it’s changed me.

Thankful Thursday: How to love your mind, body and soul

I have always had a hate/love relationship with myself and my body. I've always been highly inconsistent, extremely critical and self-deprecating, even if it may often seem more inward. It's one thing I've never really enjoyed talking about because it hits a soft spot in the emotional region. I'm trying to constantly reinforce a positive … Continue reading Thankful Thursday: How to love your mind, body and soul

Gratitude 4 – Family

It is no easy task to pinpoint a particular member of my family of whom I am particularly grateful for. Each and everyone has shaped me into this being that I am today,  this mother I am today. I am thankful for my mother, she gave me my loving heart and my fiery passion. My … Continue reading Gratitude 4 – Family

Gratitude 3 – Whanau

My circumstance is a little different to most when it comes to family, but I am all the more blessed for how things have turned out. It's as if there was divine intervention when I was brought into this world. Adopted from birth, and raised by the two most loving parents, gifted from a selfless … Continue reading Gratitude 3 – Whanau

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.

METAL AND STONE

Rainfall’s certain magic. How beautiful be that of this world, the gathering and falling of rain from the sky.
Everything cleansed from the fluid infusion that water’s energy brings. Refreshed and renewed.

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…
