Today I’d like to share Terri’s post where she has gathered a selection of posts to helps us thrive, not just survive with Fibromyalgia/CFS and she reminds us that

“May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.In fact, the whole month of May is dedicated to raising awareness of fibromyalgia.”

What could be more convenient as we continue to raise awareness than having all these dedicated bloggers and their blogs within easy reach!

The month is long, and lockdown longer still so we have the time and opportunity to educate ourselves a little more.  Happy reading and learning.

Le grà,

Cultivate your Dreams!

You owe it to yourself to cultivate your dreams. You don’t have to start out big…just begin.


Small children grow into great adults and similarly if small projects are tended with the same love and kindness, they too grow beyond measure!

Did you cultivate your dreams lately? Have you seen them blossom?  Can you share any tips that worked for you?

Much love,

Marie xx

Just One Minute Monday (5).

Today I’m taking one minute to think about my food.

Breakfast, continuing my love of fruit which was part of every morning on my recent holiday in Spain.


I’ve deliberately paused to look at my food and consider what I am putting into my body.  I’m trying to be conscious of how fast or slow I eat.  This is a simple way to practice a little self-care.  I want to be fully present with my food, really tasting it and noticing all its different flavours and consistencies.


Food 2
A beautiful meal prepared for us by Ada, my much loved Polish in-law and my cousin Roger who is like a brother to me!

I’m grateful for the variety of choices I have and for the opportunity to share food with extended family.

Do you ever stop to think about your food choices?  How often do you really savor your food and notice the individual flavours?  Do you practice self-care?  Did you relax and have a good conversation over your breakfast or dinner today or did you eat it in a hurry while multi-tasking?  I love your company here on Createspaceweb and I always look forward to your interesting comments!

Much love,

Marie xx
