Wow

“Paul you really clearly have such a natural infectious enthusiasm for life.”

This was one of the best things that my mentor and Dear friend Fiona Harrold ever said to me. It wasn’t always this way. There was a time when I hardly ever laughed or smiled, I was completely lost inside of myself. The other day someone said to me, “You say Wow a lot, did you know that?” I told them that I make it a priority to notice what’s around me and find things to find wonderment in. Life is exciting and there is a lot to say wow about.

Pay attention. Life is amazing and beautiful and wonderful. Yes, times can be tough and we can face huge challenges but it doesn’t mean life isn’t still beautiful and wonderful. We choose where we put our attention. Notice the fascinating, the beautiful, the odd, the unusual, the extraordinary.

I visited an aquarium recently with my Husband and I was mesmerised by these little creatures called Weedy Sea Dragons. They are exquisite little things that look alien, magical as if JK Rowling had written them into the pages of a book.

 

In that moment, these tiny creatures held my whole attention; I was in awe. This is a practice that can be achieved by noticing, being mindful and paying attention. It grounds you in the present moment, expands your horizons and feeds your spirit.

 

Until next time…

  • As A-Level and GCSE results are now in I want to remind all parents and recipients of results that exams do not define you. They do not dictate your future success and certainly not your worth and value as a person. If the letters are not what you had hoped for 1. Get calm. 2. Seek advice and 3. Make a plan. Awesome things lie ahead of you. You are more than enough.

  • Time flies! A year ago I married the one I love in a magical @wizardofozfilm and @wicked_musical themed wedding. Matt and I will remember this day forever. So many of our friends helped to make this day special, our cake was out of this world thanks to @donna_maria_white and to top it all off @alice_fearn11 and @sophieevansofficial our favourite witches from Wicked London sent us the most lovely video message. I have never felt so much love in one room. Love is Love.

  • This past weekend I had the privilege to visit @ntstourhead and I think it may now be one of my favourite places in the world. I love “little adventures” exploring new places and seeing new things, I need to be in nature as often as possible. Stourhead is stunning and every now and then my mind wanders back to the lake, the grotto, the green, the trees and magical architecture. Stourhead is somewhere I have been saying I wanted to visit for years and years and I am so glad I finally made it there. Where do you need make a plan to visit?

  • I have been in Brighton for my birthday today. In one of my favourite shops I discovered a magical book by @coraliebickfordsmith.
My love bought it for me because he could see how much it made me smile. You need to order a copy, food for the mind and heart and soul. @coraliebickfordsmith is epically talented, so grateful to have found this little piece of magic.
