Adding some green


My mom always had plants in her home.
It was my responsibility to water them.
Her love of nature was so tangible.
Her home was really so beautiful.


We have been in Australia for three years now.
And I somehow forgot how easily one can create a home by adding some green.
I suppose I have been so busy with children and trying to ground us here, that I have forgotten to ground us.


Plants are the easiest way to beautify and ground our homes.


I have added a few plants.
And it looks like a new space.


Green.
Alive.
Vibrant.

A tangible connection to Mother Earth.


A new pot for my orchid.


And the biggest pot I could find.

I have planted a Japanese Maple in there.
It is sitting in my study, which I am slowly converting into my ashram room.

I am feeling so much more connected.
Grounded.
Peaceful.

And I am looking forward to the third Fill Up Your Tank workshop that I am going to tomorrow.
A whole day of yoga, meditation, self reflection and the best gluten free chocolate muffins you ever did taste.

Life is good.
Yes, it is.

Blessings to you.
