Back to Work? No, back to filling your life with joy :)

Most people have been away on holiday and have just returned to work, school or just reorganizing for the last quarter of the year.  If your mind is already on planning your next holiday or break just hold up for a second and think about your life now.  Give thanks for the wonderful things happening around and within you.  Look at the beauty of the golden light early in the morning as I did this morning, see the joy abounding around you.  If you are saying "what joys" then it is definitely time to make a list of all the things you can feel gratitude for. Five a day would be a good start.  Here are my five today:

  1. The golden light shining on the plants on my patio this morning

  2. The love I feel for my husband and family

  3. The jump for joy my dog Mocha did for me on seeing me first thing

  4. Celia, the helper I have to free me up to do the things I like

  5. Gratitude for being able to share with friends like you

What are your five?


Portrait of a Waterfall
Fiona Joy Hawkins’ debut piano album has been described as ‘music to dream to’. Featuring piano with orchestration, Portrait of a Waterfall calms the mind and yet allows it’s listener to become lost in the beauty of thematic melodies. Drama is not lost on this album, with Opus Rain demonstrating stunning piano and orchestration that lifts the spirits yet soothes the soul. “The idea of synchronicity has always intrigued me, colours, ideas and emotions all have corresponding sounds which are a description of everything I see and feel”.   Fiona is also well known as an artist in Australia.  I am sure you will enjoy this CD.


Her CD is in stock for HK$168 E-mail me if you would like to reserve a copy.
