Leisa’s Diary #3; Life Values

by Leisa on January 29, 2014

Following on from my last diary entry about busyness, another concept that I’ve been playing with, is about values and how our life is a reflection of that which we value the most.

Virginia Woolf once said, “One cannot think well, love well or sleep well if one has not dined well.” This simple quote holds so much truth!

The festive season is over for another year (as long as you don’t count Australia day and Easter both looming on the horizon!), and for the majority of people out there, this time of the new year can tend to go one of two ways. For some, it might be detox central, with many super
