I have had a fab weekend!! On Saturday my best friend came to stay and we went to Hakkasan in Mayfair. It’s one of the top restaurants in London at the moment and the food was absolutely amazing. It was really special to spend some proper catch up time with Vicky. Yesterday was spent dancing in the streets at Nottinghill Carnival which was fun as always. Remember a few weeks ago I posted a video of a free hug campaign? Well there was a guy there with a T Shirt saying FREE HUGS! So I gave him a hug and before we knew it he was running around hugging everyone, it was so lovely!
I was reading in the paper this past week about the fire at Richard Branson’s Necker Island. I was touched to read something Kate Winslet said to the Evening Standard;
“I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were there watching the flames, and saying ‘At the end of the day, what you realise is that all that matters is the people you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff really matters’.”
It’s so true, ultimately all that matters are those you love. Material possessions do not make you who you are, they don’t support you when you are in need and they don’t fill you with love and connection, which is all human beings really want.
I was reading about resentment this week, how easy it is to feel jealous or resentful towards others. It’s such a horrible emotion and it comes from comparing yourself to others. It distracts from feelings of love and can get in the way of relationships. It’s helpful to look what is going on to cause the resentment, what are the feelings under lying it, then acknowledge them and set them free. This will then allow you to return to a space of love again.
So my month of love is coming to an end, it hasn’t felt as dramatic as the past few months. I think kindness and love are very interconnected so I feel like it’s been my focus for a while now, being loving. Through doing the Hot Power Yoga I have really opened my heart and released a lot of negative emotions which has been amazing. I would love to be in love again one day but right now it’s not the right time for me as I am going on my adventure. I can’t wait to get to India, explore this amazing country and learn more about yoga.
Next month’s intention is “being playful” and what better way to kick start it is a week in Ibiza!!! So I will not be writing this blog next Monday as I will be dancing on the beach somewhere with some great friends. I can’t wait!
