Blackmill – ohhhh I love that I found you today!! So beautiful I took 20 minutes out of my day to just listen, lie in bed and just… be… Mmmm grateful!! =) / Tita Dolly, yesterday I found a book on Indian Wisdom that my mom gave me when I graduated. Today, I found this book from you. And this time I actually read the whole thing from beginning to end… My favourite? “If you want change, begin it. If you want love, give it. If you want hope, embody it. Start immediately and do it flamboyantly. Once you’ve begun, don’t turn back. Change and growth can be painful and challenging at times, but as Lauren Bond said, ‘Every flower has to go through a lot of dirt.’ Life is about choices, growth and taking chances. It is about pushing through and moving forward. It is about loving courageously and not holding back. It is about finding a brighter, better way. You owe it to yourself and to the world to make the most out of the stuff that’s in you. Bloom into your incredibly, gloriously, brilliantly beautiful self. The world is waiting…” This was the passage on the very first page and is the reason I dropped what I was doing to sit on the floor this afternoon and just read the whole thing. If you are reading this, I wanted you to know that this put a smile on my face and lit a candle in my heart. And I’m glad it took me this long to find this book again, because it couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank you and with love always, I hope you are well… – krissa x / The Owl and Pussycat – cute little pub and great place to start the evening for some #futureplanning. Thanks for the drinks MS! (Even if I did get them wrong!!) / Kat, thanks so much for taking the time out tonight to have a chat. Know you’ve had a long day! But much appreciated! =) / These Green Machine smoothies at Shoreditch House… Oh my YUM! / Tonight, Kat tried to trick me into putting tampons into the fridge. I… yea. I dunno. I’m… grateful? =P yea, nice one FUNNY GUY! x

The formula for a perfect, balanced, chilled-out Saturday is pretty simple: Embrace the summer monsoon with this Gange-a-Midi track. / Practice 90 mins of yoga with Jessica, followed by 90 mins of Thai massage basics with Rob and Casi. / Purchase 1 serving of cold, refrigerated Vita Coco and thank god you finally love coconut water and thus, feel normal. / Come up to the Stricklands, home away from home away from home… / Show Gracie some tricks of the trade… I have to say, it is friggin awesome and inspiring seeing a 7-yr-old do half of the Dharma II stuff I would normally teach in class! Crow to headstand included! Honestly, if I’d started this young… … I would’ve probably been taken off the planet by now. / Witnessing Mo Farah beat The Cube… WITH 6 LIVES LEFT! What a legend. Really, truly, made of gold! / Master Sun said: ‘Know the enemy, Know yourself, And victory Is never in doubt, Not in a hundred battles.’ He who knows self But not the enemy Will suffer one defeat For every victory. He who knows Neither self Nor enemy Will fail In every battle. – #futureplanning – comp analysis. Status: complete. Sweet. =)

I’m grateful for the documentary, “Girl Model”. Not because it’s a particularly joyful topic… But because it made me grateful that I didn’t have to live my life this way. / Today… I practically ate a whole garden full of iron-rich foods… I’ve been feeling really really low on energy lately and something just wasn’t feeling right… Did some research. Bought some goods. Ate them all. Now feeling much much better. Thank god for that! / Is it bad to say I love The Kardashian show so much I now follow the spin-off about Khloe and Lamar?? Oh no… Maybe I should have kept that too myself! =| =p / I like how Kat and I can literally plant ourselves anywhere in the house and still feel comfortable. Now that’s a good house! Grateful! / On the way home… just thinking as I do… Maya threw a brick down on me from heaven and told me what I had to do. So when I couldn’t sleep this evening… guess what I did? I went ahead and started working on The Fallen! Yea, remember that?! =p Now let’s hope this version of the bridge sticks! And let’s hope all the rest of my #futureplanning goes well so I can finally have the time and means to support myself and write this book once and for all! Patience, they say, is a virtue… x

Don’t know what I’m more grateful for, the fact that M&S had this amazing 3 for £5 deal on orange and carrot juices… or the fact I managed to hold all 3 bottles in one hand while I took this picture. 😉 Either way, grateful! / Thank you, Ellen, for leaving this stack of flyers out for me. Grateful =) / Were it not for my basic Photoshop skills, I would not have managed to put this flyer together in time to print tomorrow and distribute on Friday. And so… Grateful! 😉 x

sorry

To make a Milky Way Tree: warm a handful of fake (Quorn) chicken meat; chop and dice fresh, plump avocadoes; toss some fresh, crunchy spinach leaves; serve all together with a natural yoghurt and fresh lemon pepper sauce and voila! – you have just tasted a little bit of heaven… Grateful! / Ryvita with Moroccan hummus = YUM! / Every time my sister pesters and pings and pings and pesters to chat and to video skype at work… I am grateful. I mean, look at that face! How could I possibly resist?! =) / Thanks, C, for the formal apology. I’d rather ctrl + R though and start afresh =)
