Welcome to the March edition of Soul-Sized Living Magazine!
Apologies that things have been a bit quiet since November – I’ve been taking a semi-sabbatical, focusing on laying foundations and getting clarity about future plans, so some of my ‘doing’ had to go on hold for a while.
And, as a result, I’ve got plenty of exciting news for this issue of Soul-Sized Living.
This month we’re talking about gratitude, authenticity and even falling in love with life.
Plus there’s the usual “What’s on?” and news about our two key retreats for 2014.
I hope you enjoy this edition. As always, I’d love to hear from you – either by replying to this email, or by commenting on articles and joining us on Facebook and on the forum.
With love, Namaste,

Why Kids Need A Gratitude Diary
I have to giggle when I feel drawn to discuss the idea of children and gratitude with parents. It gets a bit of a ‘Marmite’ response – the parents either love the idea or try to shoot me down in flames, telling me all the reasons why getting kids to feel grateful is either stupid or impossible!
Either way, it’s hard to argue against helping our kids to cultivate an ‘attitude of gratitude’ – surely it’s a great way to help them feel happier – and to grow up into more compassionate and grateful adults?
Here are 3 quick tips to help them love every moment of their gratitude journal experience.
Is It Time To Put Yourself First?
Just when you think you’ve got life sorted… Read about what happened when an old friend of mine did a TEDx talk – and how it turned my life around, even before I had watched it. I’m sharing a life-lesson in authenticity that might just save you a decade or two of heading in the ‘wrong’ direction!

Post a Facebook status update at any time during March, talking about something you feel grateful for.
