LIFE STUFF // OLD NOTES TO MYSELF

My deepest interest in life is expansion, the pursuit for a higher consciousness or in simpler terms, growth.  I am a serial note writer, in notebooks, at the back of slips, on serviettes, stickies, on my fridge and of course, in the notes section of my phone. I’m currently experiencing the good results of a growth spurt and was laying awake last night examining where I was versus where I am now by reading notes from as far back as 2012.  My most prized possession is a book called Notes on Love and Courage by Hugh Prather that I bought a few years ago at a Hospice Shop. It’s full of simple but very relatable wisdoms, some of which I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago.  That book has taught me to document my surroundings and feelings as a creative practitioner. So I thought I should share some of my thoughts from the past two years.  They are not statements or declarations. They are honest processes of the mind over the years, incomplete and passing by.  Some are also quotes from books and articles I have read or songs I have heard.  This year I turn 30 and I could not be happier with the way I fit into myself.

    Love it.

    Looking back always shows how much growth has happened. Highly recommended practise.

    This makes me smile and laugh, and mainly because I find myself having to delete the many notes on my phone every once in a while. I am an avid writer of cell-phone-notes and yes, looking back on the things written can show a great deal of growth.
