Happy New Year all. We're hard at work in the Duvet man cave making our plans for 2017 and hope to be in touch shortly with details of our upcoming gigs. To keep you going in the meantime, two occasional members of the Duvet family, Trevor Knight and Honor Heffernan, are bringing their new cabaret/speakeasy-style show to the Purty Kitchen on 24 February. It's described as a "soundtrack of ‘dirty'-cabaret, electronic-vaudeville, rock and jazz": What's not to like? See you there.
It's tansformation Tuesday!! Girl on the left in love with our new baby boy but anxious and scared about change, worried and overwhelmed by the unknown.
Girl on the right still in love with our baby boy 19 months later but much more settled, excited for the future, not scared of the unknown, confident and happier.
So how'd I make the change? A combination of focusing on spiritual growth, personal development, gratitude and overall fitness.
I learned from some other awesome mamas that we can improve our mindset simply by being thankful and spending time each day, especially in the morning, working on ourselves from the inside out.
Example - I've been journaling and filled up the whole black and white book so far. I used to think that weirdos only took time to write their feelings and thoughts. That might be one of my biggest changes -- now knowing that it is super helpful, grounding and productive to journal.
I just take a few minutes to write some prayers, what I'm thankful for and my goals and it's an amazing start to the day. I have realized that real wellness requires growth/learning, being open to change, getting outside your comfort zone and sharing with others.
Would you want a chance to feel better too? I'd love to share some simple steps on how you can be happier and appreciate life more. I'm having a free gratitude challenge coming up, and if you want in, just comment below with "I'm in" or "more info"
