Death invited me to a thrilling dinner date!

A path to a beautiful life…

I adorned my cherished black dress, reserved for special moments, and allowed him to escort me to our candlelit meeting.

He opted for a rare ribeye, while I indulged in two desserts and a mojito.

Lost in thought, I pondered why his presence felt so familiar, reminiscent of earth and memories intertwined.

He seemed like a distant yet intimate place within me, whispering in the autumn breeze at the twilight’s edge, amidst movement and serenity.

His gaze held the vast night sky, questioning, “Have you truly lived, my love?”

Swirling my mojito, I contemplated the essence I contributed to life’s tapestry, loving deeply and liberatingly, embracing pain and gratitude’s transformative power, finding awe in nature’s wonders like blooming flowers and busy honeybees.

Reflecting on the enigmas of regret and yearning,

I acknowledged the beauty, insignificance, and complexity of our transient existence before we return to the earth as ancestors.

In a tale spun with whispers of intimacy, he witnessed as I savoured the sweetness of cream upon my fingertips.

Drawing near, he uttered, “Beloved, it is time”

Hand in hand, he guided me homeward, each step a gentle caress of time.

As evening embraced us, he drew near once more for a lingering kiss goodnight.

A soft laughter escaped me as our lips intertwined, for in his gaze burned a hunger for my very essence, and his kiss held the power to halt my beating heart.

Death has taught me about the finite nature of life and time, emphasizing that holding onto our past burdens us with things that will soon lose their value.

The more you are focused on time – past and future – the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.

– Eckhart Tolle

For me, it speaks clearly Eckhart Tolle’s main message. As long as we keep living in our past, holding onto the energy of who we were yesterday, we will continue to relive that past. In order to create something new, we let go of our past, live in this now moment, and fill the void created from releasing all that we were, with the infinite possibilities of who we can become.

Sounds so easy, huh?

Yet it isn’t. Letting go of who we have always been is very difficult when we are living in the exact same situation that created our past. Creating a new reality is easier if we can remove ourselves from routines. Then the challenge is to hold on to that new you when you return home. Who I am today bears little resemblance to who I was . And I’m still growing, learning, listening to my soul. It is possible.

She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings.

The freedom to dance in the boundless field of possibilities. Embrace the now, and the future will unfold in ways you never imagined.

Some people didn’t die when the arrow was in their chest, they died when they saw who threw the arrow.

However, grudges against those who have wronged us only steal our peace of mind and hinder our progress. Letting go and forgiving liberates us.

The kindest thing you can do for yourself, is to let people go when they want to go.

Chasing after someone who is emotionally not available or doesn’t want to be with us is not an expression of love.

It is fear that makes us chase. Love does not chase, or beg.

Let people go when they want to go.

No chasing, no begging, let it hurt and then let it heal.

When we stop forcing people to choose us we make room for the people that were made for us.

This is when the embodiment of a powerful truth for the anxious arises…“I don’t want someone who doesn’t want me”.

Life is like a waltz of emotions – a tango of insecurities and unspoken desires.

It’s a rollercoaster ride where mismatched expectations collide, creating a whirlwind of chaos.

Picture this: she’s chasing after someone who’s not really into her, while he’s stringing along someone he’s not that into. This mismatch brews a storm of insecurity and frustration.

She’s on edge, desperate for commitment, while he’s on the defence, guarding his freedom.

The more she clings, the more he resists, spinning them into a dizzying cycle of neurosis and irritation. Welcome to the anxious and avoidant dance, a tale as old as time, where roles can easily flip.

It’s a messy tango fuelled by low self-esteem and buried desires.

The key to breaking free? Inner security.

When she boosts her self-worth, she’ll realize chasing after the wrong kind of commitment is a dead-end street. And when he aligns with his truth, no more half-hearted commitments – just honesty and clarity. It’s a journey of integrity, where desires and actions align, paving the way for peace and freedom.

The anxious seek reassurance, not a lifelong commitment, while the avoidant crave connection at their own pace. Honesty breeds intimacy, while deception fuels suffering. It’s all about speaking our truths, honouring each other’s needs, and embracing vulnerability.

This path to security lays the groundwork for deep intimacy, where commitment blossoms into love and passion.

Let’s swap the game of insecurity for a dance of intimacy, where transparency reigns supreme and love conquers all.

Love is more than a feeling; it’s a choice we make daily.

We must choose to let go of annoyances, forgive, show kindness, respect, offer support, and remain faithful.

A truth can walk naked, but a lie always needs to be dressed.

If your life isn’t as fulfilling as it could be, try embracing honesty.

Whether stuck in an ideology or nihilism, honesty can set you free.

In Paradise, truth reigns supreme, creating a harmonious existence.

Speak the truth or, at the very least, refrain from dishonesty.

Stop expecting loyalty from people who can’t even give you honesty.

Loyalty is built on a foundation of trust, transparency, and mutual respect. It’s natural to want loyalty from those around us, but it’s essential to remember that loyalty should be earned through genuine connection and integrity.

Your words start to lose value when your actions don’t match. Get a sneak peek into folks’ true colours through their actions, and you’ll be dancing circles around their words without missing a beat!

You Reap what you Sow no matter how long it takes, Everything you do gets returned to you.

3 Rules in Relationships:
Don’t lie, Don’t cheat and Don’t make promises you can’t keep.

Unknown Author

Attachment is like hugging a cactus – it just leads to ouchies.

Let go of the fear, the daydreams, and the strings attached.

Instead, embrace pure connection, free from clinginess.

Don’t play puppet master with others to feel at peace.

Remember, you can’t control the view others have of you, so why break a sweat trying?

When the world quiets down, the only opinion that truly counts is the one you hold of yourself.

To echo Jordan Peterson’s wisdom on life –

“How much better would the people around you be if you were better?”

The future and the past… like twins separated at birth, but one’s got a cool makeover!

The past? Set in stone. But the future?

Oh, it’s a wild card, ready for some glow-up action!

Happiness, they say, is in the journey, not just the Insta-worthy views at the top.

So, how about sprinkling some positivity confetti in your interactions tomorrow?

Tidy up that chaos at home, banish those closet snakes, and watch your life play out a better tune!

It’s like planting little seeds of awesome each day, and guess what?

They grow into a magical forest of progress!

No hocus-pocus here, just the power of your mind aiming for better days ahead.

Your mission? Notice what bugs you, fix what you can, and watch the ripple effect of goodness spread. So, go ahead, be a fearless magician of your destiny!

“What could I say to someone else—my friend, my boss, my assistant—that would set things a bit more right between us tomorrow?

What bit of chaos might I eradicate at home, on my desk, in my kitchen, tonight, so that the stage could be set for a better play?

And, with each day, your baseline of comparison gets a little higher, and that’s magic.

That’s compound interest.
There is nothing magical here—or nothing more than the already-present magic of consciousness.
We only see what we aim at. The rest of the world (and that’s most of it) is hidden.

If we start aiming at something different—something like

“I want my life to be better”

Our minds will start presenting us with new information, derived from the previously hidden world, to aid us in that pursuit.

Faith is not the childish belief in magic.
That is ignorance or even wilful blindness. It is instead the realization that the tragic irrationalities of life must be counterbalanced by an equally irrational commitment to the essential goodness of Being.

It is simultaneously the will to dare set your sights at the unachievable, and to sacrifice everything, including (and most importantly) your life.

You realize that you have, literally, nothing better to do.
But how can you do all this?—assuming you are foolish enough to try.
Pay attention. Focus on your surroundings, physical and psychological.
Notice something that bothers you, that concerns you, that will not let you be, which you could fix, that you would fix.

You can find such somethings by asking yourself (as if you genuinely want to know) three questions:
“What is it that is bothering me?” “Is that something I could fix?” and “Would I actually be willing to fix it?”

If you find that the answer is “no,” to any or all of the questions, then look elsewhere. Aim lower.

Search until you find something that bothers you, that you could fix, that you would fix, and then fix it.
That might be enough for the day.

“What could I do, that I would do, to make Life a little better?”

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again’?

Many people understand this concept, yet struggle to achieve different results.

Instead of putting in the effort or considering personal flaws, they tend to shift blame elsewhere.

It’s common for people to resent their bosses, believing that they are the ones hindering progress.

In reality, while the boss may play a role in impeding success, there are multiple factors at play.

The boss’s influence can be managed, but it requires self-improvement first.

Not everyone excels at the same things you do.

Embrace your strengths, as they can significantly impact outcomes.

It may seem daunting to change, but sometimes, embracing your natural abilities doesn’t require much effort. Just let it happen.

Our primal instincts, like snap judgments, served a purpose in the past for survival.

However, in today’s world, they can work against us. We need to adapt by learning not to judge but to ask questions, encouraging open communication and understanding.

Embracing change and self-improvement may not always be as challenging as we perceive.

By evolving our perspectives and behaviours, we can navigate a rapidly changing world more effectively.

Nothing in life has any meaning except the meaning you give it. My question to you is: what if we resisted our impulse to prematurely assign meaning onto every little thing and allowed ourselves to go with the flow? 

This isn’t just a suggestion for a new mindset; I see it as a way to survive the times we’re living in, in which social and cultural norms are evolving so quickly that we can’t help but question the indemnity of relationships. 

From the moment we are born, we straddle two sets of contradicting needs: the need for security and the need for freedom. They spring from different sources and pull us in different directions. And the issue today is that we want to reconcile this tension in our romantic relationships and in many other facets of our lives. Maybe your lifestyle requires a 9-5 pay check but corporate life feels restrictive to your creativity. Sometimes, you like to be nomadic; other times you just want to be home. Big groups of different types of people buzzing about can make us feel alive; other times it can make us feel out of control. 

Control, for many, means choosing one or the other: security or freedom.

We all crave the cosy comfort of belonging while also yearning for the thrilling freedom to spread our wings. It’s like we’re all juggling these conflicting desires, dancing between seeking security and chasing after new adventures. Our childhood shapes some of us into needing a shield, while others crave open horizons. These needs ebb and flow as we journey through life. Embracing this rollercoaster of desires helps us gracefully ride the waves.

It’s a wild ride – we all want love and partnership, but hey, a safety hatch wouldn’t hurt either!

Are there areas in your life in which you are preserving a little exit door?

So, let me ask you: at this very moment, do you crave a foundation or wings? 

Do your own check-up. Have you been hopping jobs, relationships, or residences? Do you have stuff in six different places? Maybe it’s time to regroup. Have you been in the same job for ten years, five of which you’ve been complaining you need to get out? Do you trail lacklustre friendships that have become obligatory and devoid of joy and interest? Maybe it’s time to take action. 

  • If you desire freedom, go explore. Dare yourself. Take risks. Push yourself where you haven’t allowed yourself to go. Take someone new with you into the places that you love. Ditch drinks and the stilted face-to-face interview, and go rock-climbing, if that’s your thing, or biking, or live music. Open your world to them and be open to exploring theirs.
  • If you’re in need of stability, look for structure. Stand still and begin building vertically rather than horizontally. Create new rituals: a walk in the park, journaling, or meditation. Every weekend, try to call one long-distance friend.
  • In either case, remember that the goal is fluidity between the two. When we find that balance, our lives open up to new possibilities: new stories, relationships, cultures, people, and ways of life. 
  • You’re not in competition with anyone. Comparison is a waste of time because you have been created to offer the world what only you have. Sometimes you have to remind yourself that you’re something special. That you can’t be replaced.
  • Your heart, your mind, your conversation, your care, it can’t be replicated. By anyone.

Plug in, rock that code, and embrace the awesome truth that you’re totally enough.
Recite these affirmations to boost your mojo and strut through whatever comes your way today. 💪

I reckon real beauty is strutting your stuff with confidence, not giving a hoot about what others think.

It took me ages to embrace my awesome self, but hey, I’m finally rocking it! And you can too!

“Embrace change, but hey, slow and steady wins the race!” – Wise words from Paulo Coelho.

So, kick back, soak in the quiet, and listen to your inner compass. It’s your trusty guide, never leading you astray.

There’s always going to be someone who doesn’t see your worth – don’t let that person be you!

I must say, for the record, I believe 99% of the self-help gang means well. Even if their business moves sometimes raise an eyebrow. It all boils down to one thing – boundaries. Yep, respect is the secret sauce in this self-help stew!

Repeat after me:

I have respect for myself
I know my worth
I am safe, secure, loved & adored
I am worthy, I am loved, I am whole

I am lovable, I am loved & I deeply & truly love myself

Remember, Fear is an illusion.

I give permission for my life to be in alignment with abundance & financial rewards while I do great work. I can be a beacon of light. I can choose me. I am powerful & worthy. And so it is & so it shall be.

I deserve, I allow, I accept

Strike a pose and dive into the poetic world of William Ernest Henley from the Victorian Era!

I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul” means that it is up to me to determine what my future will bring. It puts me in the drivers seat of my life… I take full responsibility for my life and everything that happens in it.

Whisper this magical chant thrice – at sunrise, bedtime, and whenever you need a boost.
Picture the awesomeness you desire has already happened, chanting, “I am the architect of my fate” or
“I am the master of my destiny.”

Nobody grinds harder than a person who knows that they’re the only creator of their own success.

Treat yo’ self with some self-love and self-care!
Break a sweat, bust a move, strike a yoga pose, tidy up, declutter, pamper those nails with mani-pedis, melt away stress with a massage.
Dive into a good book, binge-watch a series, or catch a flick.
Your self-care menu is served!

Picture a love story where “The Honeymoon Phase” lasts forever!
To love someone is nothing, to be loved by someone is something, to love someone who loves you is everything.

Every relationship straddles freedom and commitment — and we all need both in order to maintain a balance of both sovereignty and intimacy.

By accepting and even celebrating that dance, we’re able to tolerate the moments when we crave more connection or more independence than our partner, knowing that it is an inherent quality of relating.

Which do you most often favour? And do you find that it shifts based on the relationship or the season.

Modern dating is complicated. It can be everything and nothing all at the same time.

Millions of people around the world are trying to find LOVE online as we speak.

This modern dating world is a wild maze of mixed signals and digital dances.

It’s like a never-ending game show where being genuine is the ultimate plot twist.

Why send a heartfelt message when a cryptic tweet will do?

And don’t even think about calling to chat things out; it’s all about decoding emojis and waiting for a reply. It’s like we’re all stuck in a dating video game with rules we didn’t even know we signed up for.

Is it cool to vanish into thin air from a long-term relationship if you can’t muster the courage to call it quits?

Uh-uh, big no-no! Leaving someone hanging in the air not knowing where they stand is like leaving them stranded on Relationship Island.

Imagine someone who has been your rock, answering your calls at the crack of dawn, always by your side – they don’t deserve a surprise stab in the back from the person they cherished.

Ghosting is just a cowardly exit strategy. Ghosting can be a real downer for the person left in the dark and some mental health pros even label it as a sneaky form of emotional mistreatment or cruelty.

But hey, how about we break free from this dating matrix and just be real with each other?

Let’s ditch the mind games, speak our minds, and show some love and respect for ourselves and others. Let’s turn this dating drama into a rom-com where honesty wins the day!

“When someone is in your heart, they’re never truly gone. They can come back to you, even at unlikely times” (Mitch Albom)

The universe might just sling your perfect match your way, leading you to craft a fresh cosy spot around things that truly propel you forward. You’ll upgrade from being just liked to being truly adored, from merely understood to being deeply seen.

So wave goodbye to what no longer fits the awesome new you!

Liz Gilbert writes in Eat, Pray, Love, “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.” 
This description of soulmates really fits with the work of Relational Self-Awareness, doesn’t it?
That love is a classroom.
That it is through relationships that we grow, evolve, and hopefully, heal! 

“If you never heal from what hurt you, you’ll bleed on people who didn’t cut you”. 
We must stop killing good relationships around us by transferring aggression to others.
Hurt feelings are inevitable in relationships, bound to arise in a fast-paced world of imperfect communication between people.

The best rule of thumb I’ve ever known to be a great deterrent to bad behaviour, is simply the golden rule...treat others how you want to be treated.

Would you want them to do to you, what you are doing to them?

Love is like a sparkly unicorn gift! Tossing it aside? No way, Jose!

Sprinkle kindness everywhere like confetti for yourself and everyone around you.

In 2014, we bid farewell to the legendary Robin Williams, leaving a permanent tear in our hearts.

Yet, his magic, humour, and the galaxy of iconic roles he brought to life on screen will forever twinkle in our memories.

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy, because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.” – Robin Williams


What’s ruining relationships?
Unrealistic expectations & unresolved childhood trauma.

In his book “What Predicts Divorce?”, psychologist Dr John Gottman spills the tea on the top four relationship wreckers, backed by studying a whopping 40,000 couples:

Contempt: Disrespecting your partner (think name-calling, eye-rolling, and poking fun).

Criticism: Taking shots at your partner’s character.

Defensiveness: Shielding yourself from blame with excuses or finger-pointing.

Stonewalling: Shutting down communication by tuning out, ignoring, or pretending to be super busy.

Drumroll, please! According to Gottman, the ultimate relationship grim reaper is none other than contempt.

Watch out for those eye rolls!

Discover how to nurture your inner child, heal past wounds, and find new joy and energy in life.
And what better way to explore this journey than with a delightful journal that’s filled with prompts and space for self-reflection?

The more valuable you see yourself, the more valuable you are.
I have respect for myself & respect the dead. I know my worth.
Let it go & let it flow. Good things are on it’s way. Because love & happiness are in my life to stay.

You’re not just a sum of your past, your money, your job, or your scale number. You, my friend, are a love magnet, no matter what. Forget the love stories with kids or partners — you’ve been loving yourself since day one. Embrace it, you’re a love legend! ❤️

I have the power to give and receive endless love.
I have lived and loved.
I am in charge of my life.
I am healed.
I am resilient and can get through anything.
I’m going to make you so proud.
And you means YOU. All the obstacles you encounter on your journey are worth it because it’s about making yourself proud…and no one else.
I can. I will. End of story.

“I am my sanctuary. I am my cheerleader. I’ve got my back.

Avoid lingering at tables where the gossip train goes choo-choo about others or exes. If you stick around, you might just end up as the star of the show once you step away or they find a new target.

Drop the drama! When you feel bothered, park yourself in the Zen Zone. Just observe that inner whirlwind without diving headfirst into it. Take a step back, relax, and bid that disturbance farewell.

You can’t rewrite your past, but you can grab a clean sheet of paper and write your future.

When you replace “Why is this happening to me” with “What is this trying to teach me?” everything shifts.

Live your beautiful life

Embrace your fabulous journey…Let’s agree, it’s not fancy stuff that paves the way to a fabulous life.

“I am Luxury / Opulence” Forget fancy watches and bling-bling rings or designer threads.

Opulence is the sound of laughter and the warmth of friends, it’s feeling raindrops on your skin, it’s hand-holding, tight hugs and sweet kisses. Don’t go hunting for opulence in stores, don’t seek it in presents, don’t search for it at shindigs, and don’t chase it at galas.

Opulence is being cherished by folks, it’s earning respect, it’s having parents by your side, it’s playing with your grandkids, it’s the stuff that cash can’t buy.

Now, picture this: What’s the missing puzzle piece in your world?

Is it love? Is it joy? Is it that spark?

Here are a few more questions to ponder:

What am I cluttering my life with that I could swap for better things?

What’s stopping me from making a move?

Could it be fear?

Do I believe I’m not worthy?

Are these excuses strong enough to stall your path to a beautiful life?

If you’re truly honest with yourself, the answer will be a loud and clear “no.”

I hope you believe that you can still make a beautiful life for yourself even if you lost many years of it to grief, darkness, or a wound that wouldn’t close.

I firmly believe everything happens for a reason, and without those years of darkness, I would never have found my light. Don’t regret your past. Learn from it and grow.

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

– Les Brown

Tell me what it takes to get you feeling alive
Tell me how to show you it’s a beautiful life
I’ll do anything to pull you into the light
Cause everything will change when you open your eyes
So don’t you let the sunlight go by without you
Don’t you realize how lucky we are

Open up your heart, baby, let it all go, tonight
Live your life like it was running out
Be alive
We gotta scream it out
Be it then
And feel the rush again
You’re not lost
No matter where you’ve been

You’ve been trying hard just to make it alone
But I can help you baby, let me carry the load
I’ll do anything to make you see what it’s like
Cause everything is different when you open your eyes
So don’t you let the sunlight go by without you
Don’t you realize how lucky we are

Open up your heart, baby, let it all go, tonight
Live your life like it was running out
Be alive
We gotta scream it out
Be it then
And feel the rush again
You’re not lost
No matter where you’ve been

All your life you’ve been chasing a ghost
You gotta change your mind if you’re gonna let go
No matter how you feel nothing’s holding you up
Nobody’s holding you back
Find a light that you are

Live your life like it was running out
Be alive
We gotta scream it out
Be it then
And feel the rush again
You’re not lost
No matter where you’ve been

Live your beautiful life.
Go ahead. You deserve it

There’s no road to happiness. Happiness is the journey itself.

In the cosmic dance of life, the lows pave the way for the highs. Every twist and turn serves a purpose. Trust the unseen reasons, they’re there even if hidden. It might not be your win, but someone you hold dear.

The lesson? Life always unfolds for the best, whether you see it or not.

“Nothing’s good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”– Shakespeare’

Sometimes you have to stay busy so you don’t have time to feel.

Turn Up, Tune in and Rock Out!
Travel. As much as you want. As often as you can.
Ride a plane. Take a train.
Explore new places, try new foods, fall in love.
Remember that there is so much more to life than just repeating the same day over and over again.

Wouldn’t it be great if stories never ended?

The tough part about missing someone special isn’t the farewell, it’s the day-to-day without them.

And the real kicker? Seeing them move on while you’re still stuck in the heartbreak lane.

But hey, can we really blame them?

Nah, not really. My wise grandma Matilda Augusta Stein used to say, “True love wants happiness for the other person. Even if it means they’re happy without you, you’ve gotta let them soar. ‘Cause you want them smiling.”

But what if you just can’t let go?

Would you rather be happy with someone who isn’t as thrilled about you?

That’s some heavy stuff, honestly.

We all crave love and appreciation deep down. But seeking love to fill the void left behind?

It never quite fits right. It’s like trying to force a puzzle piece where it doesn’t belong.

We chase that “love” high, that magical rush, to fight off the emptiness.

But you know what’s even better?

Unexpected love. When you’re not looking for a cure, love finds you in the most unexpected places. Sometimes, it’s the people we meet who sprinkle a bit of healing dust on our wounds.

Suddenly, the world doesn’t taste so sour anymore.

They help you stand tall again, but this time, you’re a warrior.

Stronger, wiser. You know now that love is delicate and fierce all at once.

You’re more selective about who gets a piece of your heart.

In a generation where it’s easier to run away, ghost someone, or swipe to the next person.

Appreciate those who choose to stay, communicate how they feel, and are willing to work things out.

You can’t skip chapters, that’s not how life works.
You can’t fast-forward in life; it’s not a movie!
Embrace every twist, meet every quirky character.
Sure, not every part will be a barrel of laughs.
Some chapters might even bring on a mini monsoon of tears.
You’ll stumble upon pages you’d rather skip, and times when you wish the story would never finish.
But hey, that’s the ride!
Stories are the glue that keeps the world spinning.
So dive into yours full throttle – don’t snooze through it!

Looking back, I spot a rollercoaster of pain, oopsies, and heart-twinges. But gazing in the mirror, I spy a warrior, a graduate of life’s school, and a proud self-cheerleader.

Nothing beats the warm fuzzies of a snug nest, a stocked pantry, wheels that zip you around, and a bunch of awesome companions by your side! The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way.

Forget the oopsies I blurted out, focus on the times I rocked it. Ignore my sad moments, remember the joy rides. Also, skip the tears when I leave, keep the happy memories alive. Pick flowers in summer where I rest, catch the sunset hues, and cherish the magic times we had.

May your days be as sparkly as a unicorn’s disco party, showering you with all the love and glitter you’re worthy of.

Settle for nothing less than a treasure trove of efforts, love, happiness, and admiration.

You’re not just a star; you’re the whole galaxy – deserving of everything your heart craves.

Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!

Just like trees shedding leaves, embrace change as a natural part of life.

Every sprout needs its own special care to bloom – and so do you!

Here’s to a life overflowing with enchantment and giggles! Xo,
