I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!

I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
― Edna St. Vincent Millay

Why do we no longer crave the simple pleasures in life?
For me, I can’t think of any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon…
than just lying on a hill, in a field of flowers with quiet eyes, drinking it all in.

Leon Wyczółkowski

“Spring in Gościeradz”, 1933

There’s nothing I love more than to open all my windows on a windy day and listen to the leaves rustle in the trees.

What about for you?

— J.

Listen closely to the wind,
it’s the sound of the leaves in the trees,
dancing and writing beautiful poetry across the skies.

Having had the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle coincide with the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada created quite a “royal” buzz – more than usual.

Not often does a “regular” girl live out her Cinderella story, marry a prince and become a princess. Or rise in personal status and influence because she’s married into a family of “real-life” kings and queens.

But is becoming a royal the only way to do so? For one to feel like a princess and influence others for good?

For me, it’s learning to love yourself and others well, that’s what’s required – not marrying a prince!

Reach out and help others.
If you have the power to make someone happy, do it.
Be a vessel, be the change, be the difference, or be the inspiration.
Shine your light as an example.
The world needs more of that.
― Germany Kent

Happy Victoria Day!
Fête de la Reine!
