No matter how old you are, no matter what you do for a living, no matter what place you are in, right now, I am sure you have that little problem, that little thing which needs to be taken care of, that small (or big) problem which needs to be sorted. Sometimes, we get so busy focussing on doing that we forget on just being. Sometimes we get so caught up in the journey and reaching the final destination that we forget that the journey and how one enjoys it, is what matters more than the destination.
Life always throws us challenges. Just when we think we have it all figured out-- POW, there comes a knock and you don't know what hit you. Sometimes, there is no time even duck.
We all need a little special something, every now and then, to keep us going. We need that little pampering. We need that time out. We need to recharge our souls with what makes us truly happy. We owe it to ourselves. Only if you are happy, will you make your loved ones happy. If you are empty within, you have no love to give. Like my friend Gillian says "Everybody needs a cup of love, every single day:".
One of the things that makes me truly happy is being with Nature. The other is being with friends who are radiators of positive vibes and who being you joy. So it was a double treat for me when Tony, a friend of mine (an amazing person and a great guy) , took me to Fairhaven (the website describes it as woodland and water garden, a secret hideaway waiting to be discovered) and spent the day with me.
We talked, laughed and felt recharged. It was food for our souls.
It was magical.
Thank you Tony!
I am sharing some memories here with you and I know you will like looking at these pictures.(and hopefully they will recharge your soul too or at least transport you for a few moments to a magical place?)
I wish you peace and tranquillity in your life.
