Hello and welcome…..my goal is to create a site for sharing ideas, spirituality, humour and general discussions on life.  In doing so, I hope we all discover again, the joy hidden in our everyday lives. Should you ever wish to discuss, get ideas or share your opinions on any of the topics in my blog, please feel free to write. I’d love to hear from you. My working life has included: Counselling on Pregnancy and Parenting, working in the School system, in the Hospital system, with the Dying, with Communication Disorders, in Retail. I am also a member of a local mediation group.

I look forward to meeting you through your blogs. I wish you well.

  9. I love this concept of ‘mindfulness’– I have been practicing it for some time now in all that I do– watering the garden, creating art, writing, but also in common activities like talking and riding the bus. I look forward to following your blog. Thanks for coming by mine so that I could find yours 🙂

    ~peace, Jason

    Hi Leanne, I’ve nominated you for a Beautiful Blogger award if interested. You can see the rest here: http://reflectionsonlifethusfar.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/a-beautiful-blogger-award/

    • Oh thank you so much….I have received this award before and apologize to you because I cannot work out how to post the picture of the award on my screen and so you could not know it. I am so grateful to you for your thoughtfulness and will still acknowledge this somehow. Regards Leanne (just call me the backward blogger not being able to do this….I actually followed through on instructions from another blog on how to do post the awards but it just didin’t work???? :()

      • reflectionsonlifethusfar says:

        LOL, don’t worry. If you would like to know how to get the badge pic you can right click your mouse and copy the image URL. When you open a new post to write you can click on upload image/media and there’s an option where you can upload an image from a URL. Insert it into your blog post and it should work I think.
        I’ll work on doing that Booker blog award you nominated me for in the summer! LMAO Now that is what’s called ‘backward’! 😉

    Did you get a chance to look over the retreat I’m offering on 17 November?

    • Hi Adriana, I did look and it does sound wonderful. I have a few commitments that weekend, including a function in my home the next day. So it may not happen but it’s still in the mix. It sounds wonderful. How late can I notify you. If I can make it I’m going to try to bring a friend as well, are their number restrictions? Thanks heaps for letting me know. Regards Leanne

  15. bentpeople says:

    hey Leanne, You can let me know a few days before the retreat… that’ll be fine. We’ve just discovered the spot in the bush that we’ll be meditating and chanting at and it’s magical. Fingers crossed you can make it…. it’ll put you in a blissful state for your family function the next day that’s for certain. much love

    • Thank you so much Summer, I so appreciate it but I have already received this award, which you couldn’t know because I cannot get the icons to stay up on my site….the icons of this and other awards I’ve received. I must be a bit of a computer dummy. But I thank you and really appreciate your nomination. Kind regards Leanne

  18. I nominated you for the Very inspiring Blog award. Keep on going.

    • Hey summer thanks for the card. I’m blogging delayed at the moment! I have fallen off the blogging wagon for the last 5-6 weeks due to other calls on my time. I thank you for the card and wish you the best of years ahead. God bless you. Regards Leanne

  20. Hello Leanne,
    I’ve been searching for you, and see by reading your message above that you’ve not been around. I was concerned thinking things may not have been good for you, so am glad to see that you were busy…. happy New Year, and I look forward to reading you when you return, Love Valerie
    ( I too have returned !)
