The Blue Zones. It's an inspiring read if you haven't had the pleasure of picking it up before. The book is about the common lifestyle and dietary habits of the worlds longest and happiest living people. Of all the essentials to living fruitfully the one I always come back to and focus on the most is Right Tribe. The idea that we need to be surrounded by people who inspire, support, encourage and nurture us. They are our tribe.
Among some circles of people, telling them I am a Naturopath is a conversation ender, let alone mentioning my planned homebirth or my undying love of chickpeas. I have noticed that it is getting easier for me to accept that these people are not my 'Right Tribe', and to focus instead on fostering meaningful relationships with those I do feel are nourishing me as a person.
Salley Mavor which I adore! She is made from wool, wool felt, a wooden bead, cotton and silk flowers. She is very magical.
