Simple Ideas for a Rich Life – March

March is a month of hopes and promises of new life starting to shoot up and warm days whispering in the distance.

Embrace the weather

It seems to rain a lot in March and I think the rain is to be embraced with the glee of a child. Puddles are to be strode through a little too fast (and jumped in if you are feeling high spirited!)

Watch your favourite films

Because it’s March there will still be frosty days too when you can snuggle under blankets and watch lovely old familiar movies without feeling at all guilty. For me? Well I would watch The Wizard of Oz, Roman Holiday, The Sound of Music, Meet the Fockers, Flashdance and Big. Eclectic I know! Simple, funny, singalong, memory films. And oh I couldn’t miss Beaches and The Way We Were, I would snuggle in my blanket and have a big old weep.

Treat yourself to time with your favourite films and music they will make you feel so good.

Last week I wrote a blog post about my 8 favourite songs (my deserrt island discs)  and do you know just bringing them back into my life and to the forefront of my mind made me happy for days.

‘Love Baby, Love’


Celebrate Mother’s Day

My mum is in heaven but still I celebrate her on Mothers day and everyday for the love and care and kindness she raised me with. Mother’s day is a beautiful day all about about honouring and respecting the mothers who loved us . If your own mother wasn’t there for you maybe there is another woman who guided you who you want to give thanks to?

A little bunch of March’s wonderful daffodils and a  letter of gratitude and love make a simple and most wonderful gift

Prepare for the spring

Towards the end of this month (20 March to be exact ) Spring arrives and with it animals wale up and flowers begin to flourish. Blossom is on the trees, daylight lasts longer and we all wake up a little more.  We have planted some seeds in preparation for days of salads and alfresco dining and we have put out food for the birds.

Simple things indeed but how lovely is the anticipated  pleasures of a garden filled with song and vegetables we have grown ourselves on our plates.




I wish you a beautiful month full of simple ideas for a rich life

    Puddles! I really miss jumping in puddles. I wish it was more acceptable for adults to jump in puddles. One of life’s simple pleasures. That and kicking leaves.

    We’ve done it again 🙂 I love your simple ideas, I’m VERY behind with seed planting and this has prompted me to get a move on so I don’t miss out on that wonderful pleasure of picking my own fresh salad daily in the summer!

    what a fab motivational and inspiring post for this month,. i always think a bunch of dafodils really cheer up the house and i also love seeing them poking up from the long grass when i am out and about. and yes puddles should be embraced by splashing in them with wellies on! thank you for the ideas x

    …and I wish YOU a beautiful month too.
    I checked my seed box today to see what needs buying and I also stopped and considered that I wouldn’t be turning off the heating just yet too – it must be that Great Minds thing Becky, what do you say?

    Oh this is such a lovely post Becky 🙂 I think after all the extravagance of Christmas and the winter, it’s so nice to strip everything back to nice, fresh and simple. You’ve totally inspired me to set a date with myself to curl up in front of my favourite film 🙂

    I think puddle jumping should be prescribed by GP’s and every household should have a bunch of daffodils delivered in March just because. Those small things make such a phenomenal difference
