Beautiful Moments: Critters

Dear World- It’s me: Tilly

Maybe it’s just the winter blues, or maybe it’s something else but I have found my spirits to be a little low lately, so I am reminding myself of the beautiful moments in this crazy world. You know- like the smell of fresh mowed grass- or the taste of that first coffee in the morning.

Today’s beautiful moment reminder is: Critters. I love animals, and we have three critters:

2 dogs and a cat- a triangle of mischief, love and smiles.  Pets are amazing, they comfort you when your down, never judge, are always happy to see you; and think you are the ‘best’- always. Perhaps the relationship between a pet and human is the true meaning of unconditional love. People are more complicated there are always judgments, deal-breakers and conditions.

Critters in general are a source of great love for me, from the sound of birds singing their morning melody outside my window, to my spirit animal(s) guiding and protecting me, they truly provide beautiful moments in a world that can be toxic, negative and grey.

Beautiful Moments: Gardens

Dear World- It’s me Tilly

There is something incredible about a garden, the magik of the earth, sun and water working together, nature’s fusion of life, from seed to harvest, from pollen to beauty. Flowers, vegetables , trees, shrubs- I love them all.

The feel of the earth, the heart-beat of life, as I hold it in my hands, I am humbled to think that I- a speck in the Universe, can create life with just a little bit of love, work, dirt, sun, water and luck.

For me, gardening is a type of meditation, it calms my soul while it fills me with fresh energy,  I savour each scent, each colour, each bud.

“I did that- I grew that- that was me”

Playing in the dirt- one of my favourite things to do- definitely a beautiful moment in the great adventure of being me.
