Pearl of Wisdom Guest Post Number 28 - Jennifer Cockcroft

It sounds like a pretty simple statement at first glance, but I believe there is a depth of truth to it beyond the obvious.
Human memory is a tricky and incredibly complex thing, and here is not the space to go into scientific detail, but we can discuss lived experience of how memories seem to work. In general, unless you have certain neurological conditions, we tend not to remember every single detail of every single day. There are parts that we only retain in the short term while we’re doing them or a little while after, and parts that may get grouped together as routines because we do the same things regularly – and sometimes you get a sense of operating on auto-pilot because those actions are so familiar you can do them unconsciously.

Today's Pearl of Wisdom guest post is written by Agata Galland from Eat and Bloom, it's focused on the relationship we have with food and how we can all nourish a healthy one that leaves us feeling

We all know that we must nourish and look after the relationships we create and have with others  parents, siblings, friends, partner, children… “Gotta nourish to flourish” as they say, and rightly so! So imagine how different your life would look if you didn't put any effort into cultivating those relationships you’re in? It all takes time and energy, of course, but what doesn’t?

Pearl of Wisdom Number 25 Guest Post - Embracing Change

Change, we think, happens in big blockbusting Hollywood movie style moments.  
We quit the job - Jerry Maguire style; we drop the mic on all the unsaid in a relationship, we walk out of the door, we kick the habit, we do a 180.  And although this does happen, these moments are in the minority. They account for maybe 1% of our lived experience.
