Found an awesome flower garland in the mud at a festy last summer and its been on my wall ever since. Since its spring I thought I’d just wear it round the house. Makes me feel like some sort of flower fairy… I can but wish….

I spent all of this morning cleaning and tidying my room. I managed to get my indian drape on the wall and some neat artwork I bought in Amsterdam is up too. It smells like spring, the windows were wide open all day letting the chi flow and now I am feeling bright eyed and fresh to get through my work. My little nest is ready to share the happiness when Ralph gets here tonight <3
I <3 sunshine :) Today is a beautiful day, you are beautiful, everything is beautiful!
A body. Its strange to me, feeling this…physical. Kind of trapped, you know? Like I’m not really meant to be inside a shell. When I was younger I was unsure to what I was supposed to be and why people were placing names onto me…am I a girl? A boy? what is all of this flesh and why do we have to label it? Am I really so different?
It is still hard for me to accept this human form. I never understood why I hated myself so much, hated the reflection. I don’t even think society is to blame, its more than that. I look at myself and do not relate to what I see, I do not feel physically human. Does that make sense?
I enjoy being naked, I feel liberation on being in a natural form. I am in awe of the human body in its beauty and in all forms. I have forced myself to accept my own nudity, to embrace it. I have tried to trick my mind so that seeing my body is so very normal that I don’t question it… but there comes a time when I reflect upon my feelings towards myself and there is still an underlying hatred towards my body from my mind. I try so hard to feed it right, look after it right, keep it healthy. It rarely lets me down and I am so grateful that the majority of my little machine functions quite nicely…but it doesn’t escape the fact that I would feel a lot more comfortable if somebody unlocked me from this shell. I do not feel like a physical being. Not physical in the terms we use… I want to return to the light, the essence. For now I must accept who I am and remain in this form to love and care for those I hold dear and who seek guidance. Life is for living, we have a great opportunity and even if, for now, I am not my most comfortable, one day I will feel free again.
What ramblings come to tongue when left to one’s own contemplation.
love and light my furry friends. <3

Idealists, as a temperament, are passionately concerned with personal growth and development. Idealists strive to discover who they are and how they can become their best possible self — always this quest for self-knowledge and self-improvement drives their imagination. And they want to help others make the journey. Idealists are naturally drawn to working with people, and whether in education or counseling, in social services or personnel work, in journalism or the ministry, they are gifted at helping others find their way in life, often inspiring them to grow as individuals and to fulfill their potentials.
Idealists are sure that friendly cooperation is the best way for people to achieve their goals. Conflict and confrontation upset them because they seem to put up angry barriers between people. Idealists dream of creating harmonious, even caring personal relations, and they have a unique talent for helping people get along with each other and work together for the good of all. Such interpersonal harmony might be a romantic ideal, but then Idealists are incurable romantics who prefer to focus on what might be, rather than what is. The real, practical world is only a starting place for Idealists; they believe that life is filled with possibilities waiting to be realized, rich with meanings calling out to be understood. This idea of a mystical or spiritual dimension to life, the “not visible” or the “not yet” that can only be known through intuition or by a leap of faith, is far more important to Idealists than the world of material things.
Highly ethical in their actions, Idealists hold themselves to a strict standard of personal integrity. They must be true to themselves and to others, and they can be quite hard on themselves when they are dishonest, or when they are false or insincere. More often, however, Idealists are the very soul of kindness. Particularly in their personal relationships, Idealists are without question filled with love and good will. They believe in giving of themselves to help others; they cherish a few warm, sensitive friendships; they strive for a special rapport with their children; and in marriage they wish to find a “soulmate,” someone with whom they can bond emotionally and spiritually, sharing their deepest feelings and their complex inner worlds.
Idealists are relatively rare, making up no more than 15 to 20 percent of the population. But their ability to inspire people with their enthusiasm and their idealism has given them influence far beyond their numbers.
Idealists at Work
Idealists, as a temperament, are passionately concerned with personal growth and development. They are naturally drawn to working with people and are gifted with helping others find their way in life, often inspiring them to grow as individuals and to fulfill their potential both on, and off, the job.
Your attention is naturally drawn to the individual and collective needs, desires, and experiences of people in your environment. In your ideal job, you would be able to use your inner beliefs as a guide for empowering others. Though you are comfortable with leadership, you don’t like arbitrary hierarchies. You care deeply about people as people, and often feel that maintaining official role boundaries interferes unnecessarily with both communication and progress.
