Just Let Go

I saw this picture SOMEWHERE on the wonderful world of the Internet and it reminded me of how important it is to let go of things.

I was reading the other day that emotions like jealousy, hatred and anger actually cause more damage to your own body that the supposed affect it has on the person being hated/envied. Your body releases a chemical called Cortisol which damages your cell structures, speeds up the aging process, and can bring on cancer. Nasty.

So, instead of holding onto past grudges and thinking about what people have done to hurt you, just let go. You'll feel all the better for it.

And if you're struggling to do so try relaxation techniques, deep breathing, green tea, and yoga.

Little Shop Of

So, a friend of mine uploaded a picture of a lovely little pendant she'd made of a French bulldog wearing a bow tie and linked it to a small little shop that stocks local creative people's wares. It has an online store too, as well as a shopfront in Carnegie, Melbourne. Wonderful.

Here's a selection of bits and pieces I'll probably be purchasing in the newer future. Do yourself a little favour and drop in to Little Shop Of - either online here: or in store at Number 2 Woorayl Street, Carnegie. Info on their website.
