The space of less

Less things. Less plans. Less have to's. Less information. It sounds counterintuitive, yet it seems to be what we most need and crave. We live in a  world of 'needing to be up to speed/date' in case we miss out on the latest news/trends/happenings/opportunities. But too much information, too many choices and things lead to overwhelm and overload and we're unable to filter out what is really important.

Does your day always go according to you plan? Usually not right? We get interrupted constantly and things happen that we had not foreseen.

Angry? Me? No way!

I have recently written about being spiritual, which for me is more about energy than woo-woo stuff - cause I'm a down to earth kinda girl! Lately I'm getting all kinds of connected to my body though and I want to talk about it a little more. After my first Reiki sessions with my talented friend, I also did a few Shiatsu sessions and I must say those added yet another layer to my journey! The body talks!
