Four Things I πŸ–€ – January 2018 | Gratitude Journal

4 Things I'm Loving - January 2018
I follow Half Baked Harvest and I borrowed this idea from her, she does a weekly post about 9 of her fave things so I thought you know seeing as all ideas are already orbiting the universe and what makes them different is our take on it, why don’t I do a favourites post! …and I’ll do 4 instead of 9! thats right…no wheel reinvention happening here!

πŸ–€ No. 1: Spirituality

You are the Michael Angelo of your life, the David that you are sculpting is you, and you do it with your thoughts.

Delving into my spirituality not to be confused with religion, I first embarked on my spiritual journey when I was preggers with my little πŸ’. Now since then I have had ebbs and flows but I’ve kicked off my 2018 continuing to delve into my spiritualism and I have to say its pretty incredible how the universe brings people into your space who are undertaking similar journeys…Just the other day, I struck up a conversation with my neighbour and I just got a certain vibration from him so I asked him if he’d read Eckhart Tolle’s book, he hadn’t but he knew of it and that led to a conversation about spirituality, and despite us being of different religions, our quest and outlooks were similar, which I feel a lot of us don’t realise!…well what might have been a brief hi-bye scenario, ended up being a long chat and I’m excited to check out

πŸ–€ No. 2: Design Hadithi

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful William Morris

Opening up my interior design firm Design Hadithi… exciting times for me, I have always loved interior design and I can trace it back to when I was about 12, I was always re-arranging the furniture layout at home bringing in potted plants! and to this day….I’m constantly re-organizing my home… my family and friends can attest to this, more often than not whenever they come over, something has changed in my interiors!
Hadithi is Swahili for Story, so Under the Design Hadithi banner I will be telling my design stories, I’ll also have an online shop for thrifted home goods and my own designs…so stay tuned and follow!

πŸ–€ No. 3:

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you. A joy. – Rumi.
