about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

Just another ordinary miracle today....

I LOVE......

It's Monday, and I have no idea why I'm so upbeat...seriously...???...who's upbeat on a Monday for pete's sake!!! - weird.

My theory is that maybe, just maybe, the day is filled with possibility. I was just thinking this morning, once again, about the occupational hazard that comes with working in an industry of "over achievers"....leaves you always asking the question....what have I done with my day????

I've always thought that if people just knew that is doesn't always have to be about award winning stuff like winning the comrades or climbing Mt Everest - heck....being kind to a neighbour, helpling a friend, or just making an effort to be happy and spread the VIBE, are conscious decisions that require effort and energy, and more importantly, contribute to making the world a better place:-)...so I guess what I'm saying is, noone's exempt from achieving something in their day....:-) ....my disclaimer is that we should all try and do something that requires us to put in a little effort, no?

.....if you're going to do something, just give it heart....add some fairy dust, some magic...the world needs it.

Sooo..started the day with a STUNNING acoustic album....helps me break the back of serious tasks on the work front.....which lay ahead of me....and as I hear the first song.....I melt, I smile, and I just know that today is going to be GREAT day...just because it can be:-)...(click and listen to my song of today) ENJOY GF'S...have a happy week, because you deserve it and because YOU CAN, and maybe, try and help someone else to have a great week too!!

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when its time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a rain drop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds and winter have their fling
But always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
Cause we’re all a part
Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle?

It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

It’s just another ordinary miracle today


  1. shew man that was lovely - i listened to the song i nearly cried -it was flipping close i tell you...thanks for sharing GF

  2. Hey Soul Sista ... haven't checked in in a while but am always motivated by your soulful and real posts ... THANKS, GF ...

    That tree in the forefront of your photo is gorgeous .... WOW!! That's an extra-ordinary miracle right there ...

  3. Phew, catching up here on your post Bee.... wow, i need to preach that to myself I think. It is so easy to get absorbed into feeling worthless. I for one battle that more than often - feeling like I am not contributing to the world and to my life by not having done EXTRAordinary things - like climbing Mt Everest.
    Today as I (so often do) chatted to a stranger on a lift at the centre.... I realised just what you so beautifully summarized here : a friendly chat and smile does go noticed by some - maybe not enough people in the world though. But I took the time to chat to a stranger... the topic, the sour lady who didn't even answer this chaps simple question whether her lift was going up or down. So we laughed at her utter rudeness and I said - just a smile would have been nice nevermind an answer. And sparked off a happy few minutes of chat, wishing eachother a great day further.... guess that made my day - probably the feeling of having just climbed Mt Everest hey ... A simple act of kindness and friendliness was my mountain today - cool, I actually contributed to the world today :) Thanks as usual for your gift of seeing the simple things as bigger than BIG things.

  4. Vee...I love that story...it epitomises the simple joys - the one's we should never forget...you always bring kindness and happiness in some way...that's one of your things GF....dont forget it
