Getting help.

I’ve been reading this new kindle book lately called: ‘Make Your Creativity Pay: How to Earn Your Living from the Things You Love to Do’ by Pete Mosley. In one his wise pages, he mentions getting either a coach or mentor and the benefits and differences having one makes.

I’ve never really thought about having a coach or mentor because I thought first I need to do this alone, and figure it all out by myself, to prove some sort of worthiness, I guess. But I find that I’m naturally connecting with people and actually wanting to get their advice on how to do things, and how they have done things as a step towards their right direction – whether it’s emailing artist friends I know or having a quick cup of coffee and a chat.

Recently I’ve been following illustrator and soul guidance coach Hannah Marie Dudley  through her Facebook group as I actually met her funnily enough through a meetup group for creative coaching! There’s a lot of things that I find really true and can resonate with on a deep level and we have so much in common in terms of our goals and our vibes. We both want to help people and use art to do it and both creatives. She also lives in my neck of the woods, so it’s a good start 🙂

I had a short consultation session with her yesterday I’m positive that this is going to be such a great help. She’s got the drive and experience I need to hold me accountable for things which I lack of course. We will be starting our journey now together and I’m so grateful. I feel like this is meant to be! I even started back meditating again this morning (which was one thing on my list to improve)! Yay!

Check out her Facebook group The Freedom Soul Seekers – ‘Awaken the light within’ It has great tips, thoughts, giveaways and a nice community of like minded people to chat with.

I will let you know how it goes 🙂

Food for thought….

As I was searching for cheap healthy recipe ideas….At first before reading this, I was sceptical thinking, ‘here we go, another ‘How to’ about super foods and such’, but actually Jamie Oliver has got a point.

He focuses more on the spirit of community, (social interactions, sharing food and stress with our support networks) **which is hugely important and can lack badly in city cultures**, the role of religion or belief systems in maintaining a sense of purpose in life, and getting more physically active by doing simple ordinary things like housework or walking more to destinations, which we have an app to do everything now for us it seems (although I’m not completely knocking apps because they can be quite useful). Appreciating more plant based diets and consuming moderate amounts of wine every day if at all.

And if I look back at my parents lifetime when they were growing up, it’s true. I had grandparents that lived till 100 and older relatives that are still mentally, physically strong. Food for thought…
