#WorkIsPlay

3 lessons from 33 years: 🌱 People-pleasing is a silly way to live. When we do what we love, when our heart sings, the right people will stay in our life and support us. The other ones will naturally fall away. 🌱 Life is a game, an experiment. Things literally always work out for the best when we stay curious and ask ourselves “I wonder what will happen if I do this?”. The worst case-scenario? We grow and learn from our “failures”. That’s not so bad, is it? 🌱 There is no time for negativity. We are allowed to struggle, but the idea is to always stay focused on moving forward and finding our way through the challenges. We are never stuck. We can alway grow, change our circumstances, transform our life. Isn’t that crazy exciting, even in the darkest of times? . This year, my focus is on having fun and celebrating EVERYTHING. More letting go. More laughter. More getting together with friends. More date nights. Less control. More experiences with the kids. More events. Yes, I’ll still be working hard, but work happens to be fun for me. . If you had to choose one big lesson that you have learned in your lifetime so far, what would it be? . #bloomwithmarie #celebratelife #workisplay #lettinggo

My kids school @murrayville.academy has the kids outside doing nature studies, examining parts of the plants and then afterwards, turning it into art. No wonder she loves school so much... talk about engaging kids! . . . . . . . . #langley #langleyfresh #kindergarden #nature #naturestudies #natureart #art #instanature #murrayville #fraservalley #surrey #learning #activelearning #outside #gooutside #play #workisplay #playthroughlearning #montessori #reggioemiliaapproach

Apologies for the bad camera work but I’m spending time on the fetch with Coco the Indog puppy. She is under 4 months old and is doing very well at her lesson today! Fetch is a really important command because it teaches your dog to share with you! It also gives you a tool to tire the dog out! Please note, I did this as few times as possible and then we shifted to the building compound (a more distracting space) so that she doesn’t skid and also learns to focus while playing with me. A tired dog also = tired & happy owner methinks. #lifewithdogs #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #indogs #indogsofinstagram #dogsofbandra #bandradogs #adopteddogsofinstagram #adopteddogs #petsofinstagram #fetch #retrieve #play #workisplay #citizenk9 #dogtraining

Day 97/100 #100DaysOfStudioLessons — Seek your own element. Stick to it. — It is so important to be full-heartedly behind the work we do, because otherwise it feels forced & like we are going against ourselves. What I mean here is the big picture of what we do, not every task that goes into it. Some of them may not be fun, which is understandable, but if they support the bigger vision, they are easier to engage with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▫️ When we are in our element, it fills us up with energy that makes things flow better, and here is why. When the work we do is in alignment with our bigger purpose, we are fueled by the energy of meaning & the energy of enthusiasm. When something is deeply meaningful & is personally interesting, it keeps us engaged, inspired, productive, passionate, and driven. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▫️ Compare that with a state of insignificance & disinterest. It leads to a complete disengagement of the heart & mind, doesn’t it? It is no surprise that when your heart is not into something that you would have to rely on willpower to drive the action, and we know how that feels in the moment. Plus, in the long-term overuse of willpower leads to burnout. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▫️ Your gut reaction to how you feel when you do this or that, will tell you whether you are in or out of your element. You can perform a simple litmus test to see whether what you are doing is meaningful — just ask yourself if it's worth it. And not whether it is worth for some outer gain or for someone else, but whether it is truly worth it for YOU. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▫️ If it is, it will not matter how many “mistakes” you make along the way or whether you will succeed at it, and it will also not matter who will acknowledge your efforts & whether they will be celebrated. The reason you would still do it is because it is worth it — to you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼 It is always worth it being in your element. 🙌🏼 You will do your best work from that place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #workisplay #the100dayproject2019 #the100dayproject #creativelife #creativeprocess #creativeflow #gowiththeflow

These are parts from an old train set my MIL gave T for Christmas last year. All the pieces are made from wood except the train wheels 🙌🏻 I think it’s great to give old things as gifts to give them a new life where they can be used and loved 💙 T uses these in the set but also as many other things his big imagination can think of!

Contemplating. The sound of silence. A lot of people ask me “how do you work constantly and never stop?” Truth is, I smash out the climb on the mountain and then sit at the top and breathe for 5 mins. I just observe the world beneath me. Every single mountain I go to, I do this. Just a brief moment, myself with nature. It’s just enough to recharge the batteries. And there’s more energy from that than any admin task tick-off list. It’s not about working hard to enjoy the break. It’s about taking the break to enjoy the work we’ve just achieved. #workisplay #enjoyyourlife #liveyoung #dowhatyoulove #followyourheart #getoutside #contemplating #mountain #smile #adventure #love #happiness #exploring #mountaineering #mountaingirl #mountaindog #dontbeaffraid #behappy #takeabreak

I have a hard time parting with bits and scraps of paper, so after packaging up some gifts to ship today, I noticed that I had used all of the circular labels on the sheet. All day long I thought, “Mm, what can I do with that?” Tonight, that empty sheet became a template for free flowing, circular watercolor paintings that were just plain fun to make. #workisplay #studioscenes . . . . #carolfaziodesign #contemporaryart #watercolorpainting #artforyourwalls #modern_watercolor #wallart #abstractart #abstractpainter #womenwhopaint #colorsplash #artistsofinstagram #flashesofdelight #dsart #interiordesigners #doitfortheprocess #calledtobecreative #originalart #makersmovement #carveouttimeforart #sodomino #interiors #wearethemakers #showyourwork #phillyartist

Math: numbers 0-10 matching, stacking, sorting, memory whatever you can think of. These were easy to make I purchased some wood coins @michaelsstores and used some number stamps my kids had lying around the house. We used a black stamp pad to create the numbers I thought about sealing them but decided I would just leave them natural. #invitationtoplay #looseparts #numbers #counting #math #preschool #diytoys #matching #workisplay

Good morning ! We are happy to be back in School. Here's how we sometimes encourage /teach some life skills. * * Healthy competition amongst children helps them to stretch themselves and understand speed/ timing. * *Note that some friends who seemed not to have done much were busy choosing colours. *Nevertheless all our friends were learning to peg. #finemotoractivities #playiswork #bethebestversionofyou #busylittlefingers😍😍😍 #workisplay #competitionamongstchildren #speedtraining #playwaymethod #childrenaredifferent #everychildisawinner #montessorikids #playlearngrow #pwsistheplacetobe #bestschoolsinsurulere #bestschoolsinlagos

A month ago I told my work that I was quitting. I didn’t give them a specific date but I told them it would be end of January at absolute latest. Ive finally decided that I was done. At every job im at i always feel uneasy and that I’m just plodding along through my work aimlessly because I need the money. I know this is because I’m working in a place I’m not mean to be in. But once I connected back to myself about 3 - 4 weeks ago, Spirit has not stopped showing me the work I could, should and will be doing once I quit this job. Spirit keeps telling me that I need to do the work I’ve been put here to do to help others and fulfil my life’s purpose as well as my own soul. The past couple of weeks I’ve been feeling as though im already self employed, like it’s already happening. I can see it all infront of me. I can see all the movements and feel the emotions in each scenario. With fear trying to get the best of me, I have still slowly but surely been able to take baby steps and have been doing the work Spirit is showing me I need to do; affirmations, manifestation meditations, dedicating more time to my healing practices, spending more time with Spirit to develop a deeper connection and planning out the work I need to be doing.

Adventures in kitten raising: ensure that kittens are not only exposed to objects but also have opportunities to build their confidence by allowing them to climb and jump. Such play helps kittens explore their abilities and build confidence. These foster kittens will leave soon for their furever home having been exposed to other cats, dogs, a variety of climbing spaces, objects, grass, mud & a variety of games too. #raisingkittens #catcare #catsofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #kittens #kittens_of_world #catbehavior #catbehaviour #catbehaviourconsultant #socialisation #socialisationtraining #catstagram #multispecies #multispecieshome #catsanddogs #citizenk9 #workisplay #dogtraining #felinebehaviour #felinebehavior
