Acts of Self-Love

It has been a long while since I posted something. Hope to be back at regular intervals to post something…today, I came across an article from the “Mindful Company” on acts of self-love… After all, we do not need the world to love us first. We need to love ourselves first…Enjoy loving and believing in your own self!

Nudo: Adopt an Olive Tree in Italy

I just received my first set of olive oil tins from the olive tree farm that I adopted from Italy. The farm, Il Fico is owned by Nicola who is dedicating his time and efforts to take care of his family lands producing olive oil. 
 
Taken from NudoAdopt website,
 
“Nudo Adopt is a collaboration of small scale, artisanal producers. The programme is a platform for these micro-producers to bring high-quality, speciality food to a wider audience. Each farmer keeps responsibility for the care of their olive grove and Nudo helps give security to the farmers by making the link with the customer. This in turn helps to keep traditional farming practices alive and protects the countryside from intensive and destructive modern farming methods.”
 
More details on Nudo can be found in the below links:
 
Happy to do my small part in supporting a family small scale business of Nicola in Italy. 🙂

My Tree Friend, “Joy”

Riitta took some amazing pictures of my Tree Friend, “Joy” in March adorned with peanut “necklace”. Wanted to post those pictures then. But was busy with my new job and settling in that job. Now is the time.

Isn’t Joy a beauty? 🙂 🙂

*Not only that, we humans tend to fuss or worry about this and that. Trees do provide a “listening ear” to all our worries. Huolipuu (the worry tree) takes care of this. Head to this link: https://www.halipuu.com/worry-tree/ and write down your worries. No one reads your worries, but your worries will be brought into the Halipuu forest and they get burnt on the Seita-stone. The burned ashes are then scattered to the roots of the Worry tree. You have now brought your worries down to our earthy friend….nothing to worry about!!
