This month we are going to continue the theme of simplicity, stripping down to the core of who we are, identifying the real you. For only then can we move on to discover what makes our hearts sing and live the life that fulfils, develops, nurtures and grows.

Do you remember being told off for daydreaming in class? Letting your mind wander away from the application of simultaneous equations and being brought back to earth with a thump as your teacher bellowed your name at the top of her voice?

I have always been a daydreamer and I still am. When I was a child and well into my early twenties I would use that time between going to bed and actually falling asleep concocting long and complex other lives for myself. It was one of my favourite times of the day and I went on some pretty fantastic adventures.

Now I am older I still daydream, my adventures may not involve a handsome prince these days (I have him already!) but they are still quite fantastical. The difference is that today I don’t dismiss them as impossible. As I have grown older I have realised that the impossible is very rarely impossible.

Let your mind wander, track it as it goes off at a tangent, let it take you where it wants to go. Make a note in your notebook of some of the ideas and suggestions that come to on your wander. They might seem out of this world today, but I guarantee they will make perfect sense it the not too distant future.
