Joy is not in things, it is in us.

The Holidays are in full effect and to be honest I wasn't looking forward to spending them alone, as in without my husband. However in spite of present circumstances, I can't help but be excited to be with family, my kids and the many friends that have supported me through this present storm called my life at the moment.

I have learnt some pretty awesome lessons preparing for the Hols as a recently separated woman, and for me its all a matter of perspective, heart and mindset. Here goes...

Lesson #1.
Using good judgement -  its key to every situation you find yourself in. Its important to protect oneself, when you have been hurt by someone you have loved and trusted. To make yourself feel safe and secure and make decisions you can most benefit from.

Lesson #2.
Focus on Fairness - If we insist on fair treatment for ourselves, we can become angry and frustrated. Oswald Chambers said of our personal dealings with others, " Never look for justice but never cease to give it and never allow anything you meet with to sour your relationship to men through Jesus Christ.

Lesson #3.
Be Vulnerable - Vulnerability is the truest measure of courage there is any human being. Staying open, honest and true to feelings has proved to be priceless. Being vulnerable allows us to draw on a strength we might otherwise not find inwardly to cope with mental and emotional stresses.
Vulnerability can be the beginning of change and innovation of oneself.

Take care everyone and have a cheerful and warm Christmas with your loved ones this season. 



  1. I wish I had half of your strength!

  2. Take care Lesa and Merry Christmas to you! Lots of hugs:-). XX

  3. Season greetings have a restful and joyous holiday

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

a very happy Christmas to one and all

A very happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all my lovelies and to all peace and joy.
