My “whisper” today is a little different. It comes with more than one picture.

My inquiry started with what Salvador Dali speaks about:

“There are some days when I think I’m going to die of an overdose of satisfaction.”

Sounds fantastic, right? I have a magnet with that quote by my desk. So I won’t forget😉… to look for this feeling. I have been staring at it. Wanting it. Craving it… an overdose of satisfaction? When will that day arrive? I noticed with a bit of sadness that it might not be soon.

I carry at my core a deep joy and resilience. Part of it was given to me by my parents, part of it is daily practice.

I need it. I know how pain feels; in my soul and in my body. Big pain. I have grown my surrender muscle and I grow happiness…plus…

I am a fan of tiny.

This picture my friend Val shared with me reminded me of how much I have learned to cherish everything tiny: tiny steps, tiny moments, tiny pleasures, tiny tastes of food I cook, tiny big hugs from my 🌳s, Sarina’s smile and the smile a stranger shared with me today. And not to forget the deep love I feel for my work on my 🏝Tiny Islands.

With this in mind, I looked at the quote again. Dali speaks of days of this nirvana. I got stuck on days. Thinking: I don’t have days of this… But I stopped, took a breath and flipped the switch! I don’t want to dwell on what I don’t have.

“From now on I’m creating a chain of tiny,” I told myself. Satisfaction here I come!

On my hike yesterday I looked around:

🌷the earth is full of tiny… and so is the sky

 

…I feel ecstatic with our sunsets and with 🌳 Hugo as the king! That’s satisfaction for an hour!

And now I could fill this letter to the brim with an overdose of tiny, but instead, I hope I inspire you to embrace all that’s tiny in your life and let it satisfy you!

🏝 Tiny Island

  • Pause
  • Look around
  • what do you spot that brings you joy?
  • Look at it. Let it mesmerize you.
  • Smile.
  • Breathe in and out – three deep breath now.
  • Carry your tiny to what you do next.
  • It’s gratefulness we need to practice.

And at last a picture where I felt in my zone… a big dose of satisfaction…Dancing does this!

💗Hugs and love coming your way,
Manuela
