Happy New Year!

I hope you are all having a wonderful new year. This week I’m going to keep it short, sweet and deeply profound. The words I share below are not my words; they are the words of one of the greatest teachers I have ever come across and I’m sharing them with you because for me, they encapsulate the ongoing journey I feel I’m on and they inspire me to keep on. Maybe they will for you too.

Here’s to magic and miracles in 2020 and beyond.

Enjoy xxx

Continue, By Maya Angelou

My wish for you

Is that you continue


To be who and how you are

To astonish a mean world

With your acts of kindness


To allow humour to lighten the burden

Of your tender heart


In a society dark with cruelty

To let the people hear the grandeur

Of God in the peals of your laughter


To let your eloquence

Elevate the people to heights

They had only imagined


To remind the people that

Each is as good as the other

And that no one is beneath

Nor above you


To remember your own young years

And look with favour upon the lost

And the least and the lonely


To put the mantle of your protection

Around the bodies of

The young and defenceless


To take the hand of the despised

And diseased and walk proudly with them In the high street

Some might see you and

Be encouraged to do likewise


To plant a public kiss of concern

On the cheek of the sick

And the aged and infirm

And count that as a

Natural action to be expected


To let gratitude be the pillow

Upon which you kneel to

Say your nightly prayer

And let faith be the bridge

You build to overcome evil

And welcome good


To ignore no vision

Which comes to enlarge your range

And increase your spirit


To dare to love deeply

And risk everything

For the good thing


To float Happily in the sea of infinite substance

Which set aside riches for you

Before you had a name


And by doing so

You and your work

Will be able to continue
