motivational mondays!

hello loves!

i am writing this motivational monday post quite late since we just got back home from seeing my cousin’s band play a show. they are called the upside down and if you like good ol’ rock and roll, you should check them out!

ok, here is what has inspired me this week:

this lentil soup with ras el hannout from avocado bravado looks great. i am always a sucker for a good lentil soup and ras el hannout is a longtime favorite spice blend of mine.

these magical photographs from simen johan’s majestic beasts exhibition. it’s amazing how nature can take your breath away.

the wonderful leonie from goddess guidebook made this joyous video about falling asleep while meditating. she is so right!

 

 

 

and i will leave you with one of my most beloved poems from rumi:

 

the guest house


this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival.

a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

welcome and entertain them all!
even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
he may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

the dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
