• The Importance of Small Moments

    I don’t know about you, but everything that’s happening of late has only made me more determined to revel in the importance of small moments of life, even more so than ever. And I was pretty sickening already…    This isn’t just appreciating a moment, but stopping whatever you’re doing to be still and really in that moment.

    One of the best walks in London | Chelsea to Marylebone Station
