Growth and the Future Self

Do you ever have that feeling that you have grown? My birds nest fern looks just how I feel!

Fresh new leaves unfurling/Fresh new ideas forming
Bright green and shiny/Healthy and energised
Old leaves breaking down and decaying/The old me dying off and fading.
Always looking for the sunlight/Seeking the positive in everything

Via kate iredale I have found this wonderful "1 + 1+ 1 challenge". It is very similar to the "notes to self" I blogged a while back, in that you write a letter to yourself in the future tense, creating your life just as you want it to be, seeing yourself as who you want to become. You decorate and embellish your letter in any way you desire, then put it away in a decorated envelope, to be opened 1 year, 1 month and 1 day away. I have done this and it is a great challenge.

If you would like to create your future too, take a look at the May 18 post at [i] love life


  1. Wonderful new life - wondeful plant too. Happy days to you. Looks like you've been at the bottle of 'Miracle Gro' :-)

    Thanks also for the link to [i] love life - now I have a lovely new blog to visit.

  2. Last week I felt like an onion, as I peeled away layer, after layer of my soul.

    But at the end, I felt like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon.

    The 1+1+1 challenge sounds v. interesting.

  3. Mich and I are definitely layering at the same time. As the saying goes, "No Pain, No Gain." I like the challenge - think I'll try it! Thanks for the tip on blogspotting ... back in gear again!


please share a thought......
