Sam Branson  I AM SAM ๐Ÿ’› Find the Lion in your shadow, love it and let it roar! ๐Ÿฆ Be Present Not Perfect ๐ŸŒ Nurture Your Nature

Had to share this beautiful poem my sister in law @georgiana.anstruther_sculpt wrote about my dad @richardbranson to inspire her daughters to never give up on their dreams and to not listen to those who say they arenโ€™t possible. Well done Giana, just beautiful! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Once there was a little boy.....
He owned a little rocket toy.
He dreamt and dreamt that one day he
would go to space to see what he could see.
He would build a supersonic jet
and go as far as he could get.
His other friends thought this was cool,
Until aged 16 and they left school
And gave up on their childhood games,
Deciding they had other aims.
But for the boy he held his dream.
Deciding he would need a team,
Worked night and day to find a way
No matter what they had to say.
He built some businesses doing this and that.
And saved some money under a hat.
And when the hat was nearly full
He decided to tell them all.
How they laughed, how they mocked
But he was not afraid or even shocked.
He gathered together the perfect team
To help him realise his dream.
Scientists from round the world,
Special metals to withstand the cold,
Computers and other such things.
Soon his heart began to sing.
He had begun to build his rocket
No matter if they tried to knock it.
He knew that he would one day be
Soaring in the galaxy !
He work on this through many years.
Blood and sweat and many tears,
Never did he give up once.
And after months and months and months,
And years and years,
highs and low and some more tears
He ignored them when they told him โ€˜no โ€œ
โ€œWhy not give something else a go...
This game is for a little boy!โ€
......He would not let them steal his joy.
And then one day in mid December
A day they will all remember.
The crowds they gathered in the Mojave
They could only imagine the sight they would see.
With tears and sand in his eyes
The boy looked up unsurprised
Because you see he always knew
That his dream would come true.
And Up it went .....his galactic craft!
This time no one laughed
Just joy and love on every face.
As the boyโ€™s rocket went to space ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒŸ

There is something about #Space that just captures the #imagination. It is a place that holds so many #mysteries and #answers to our #existence. Since the dawn of #mankind we have looked to the skies and searched for #meaning. Not only about what is out there but as a mirror back on us. The last generation had the #moon landing to provoke thought and stretch the boundaries of what was believed to be humanly possible. Now my generation has something positive to focus on and a way to gain a better #perspective of our #collective place on this home of ours. It is now more than ever an incredibly exciting time to live. I await to see what taking people to Space is going to do to how we view this fragile and magnificent planet of ours!

A picture really does tell 1000 words! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ It was nothing short of an honour to stand beside my dad @richardbranson on this historic day and see his dream become a reality. @virgingalactic has done it! #Space A wonderful moment for the whole of humanity as we open up a new chapter in our relationship with #Earth ๐ŸŒŽ My dads passion, determination and optimism in the face of overwhelming adversity is testament that no matter what... If you keep believing in your dreams and work tirelessly to make them a reality... One day they will come true! #proudson ๐Ÿ˜Š Well done to every person involved in making this happen. Itโ€™s nothing short of life changing! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ’ซ

Wow!!! What a sight from Space Ship Unity today on @virgingalactic first flight to #space ๐Ÿš€

Wow what a moment.. One that will stay with me forever! After 14 years of blood, sweat, tears and a lot of hard work and belief @virgingalactic has become the first commercial manned flight to #space ๐Ÿš€ It was a joy to share the experience with my dad as he made his dream become a reality. It was nothing short of magical! Well done to everyone involved and to the brave pilots who risked their lives on this historic test flight in #Mojave ๐Ÿ’ซ

โ€˜What is the bravest thing you have ever said?โ€™ Asked the boy...
โ€˜Helpโ€™ said the horse ๐Ÿด - Sometimes in life the bravest thing you can do is ask someone for help. Whatever you are going through, you donโ€™t have to do it alone ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Our bodies are covered in Fascia. A spiderweb like elastic tissue that permeates the entire body. It sends messages around the body faster than the central nervous system and can hold memory. When we have been asleep our fascia gets stiff and stuck so I do some morning free movement. During my #Yoga #teacher #training I spent a lot of time connecting to my body and itโ€™s energy. It amazes me that when I let go my #energy has a life of its own. This energy in your body has its own unique movement and #patterns. It wants to #unwind. What I do is surrender to my breath and allow my body to move wherever it wants to. Every time I feel I am controlling where it goes I slow down, breathe and my energy takes over again. It serves as a great way to #connect to myself in the morning and it also unwinds tension and #emotions i might be holding. Free movement is a great way for your body to melt the #fascia and free you up so you can better glide into your day, more centred. Give it a try and remember to let your body do the #moving through your breath. There is no right or wrong, itโ€™s all about #letting #go! To start off maybe throw on your fav tune and see how your body wants to move to the music without thinking of moving... Just breathe and try to get a sense of the breath behind your breath ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿผ

Personally I believe that underneath the #stories, the thing we are all searching for in life is #inner #peace. To #surrender is the key to opening up to a life where we stop trying to control the things around us. Only from this place of humility can we start our journey. We first have to be able to sit quietly, feel the feelings and observe what comes up. We have to tear to repair and realise that no matter how hard we try, we are not in control of our lives. Itโ€™s a process and one that needs to be #nourished daily with full #awareness and no judgement. This image of me practicing yoga and meditation earlier in the year reminds me that feeling connected to myself takes daily discipline. It doesnโ€™t matter where you are or who you are with... you are always there... so spending time focusing on the depth of your feelings is truly important and worth the effort. It may be challenging at times but whatever comes up is your #truth. The more we can embrace our vulnerabilities and love them, the more we heal and hold ourselves in esteem. There is beauty in the Void, but to find it... We first have to learn to hold ourselves in that space ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

After a very long road, two of my oldest mates have launched a luxury shirt company @mrwoodlondon - www.mrwood.london - Mr Wood makes the finest, fun, bold and bright holiday shirts... All shirts are limited edition, illustrated in house and with hand numbered labels, no two shirts are ever the same. I wish them all the best with their new business. They really are two top people and couldnโ€™t be prouder of them. Check them out ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ

So true and beautiful! #grief #love #loss #energy

On #worldmentalhealthday I thought I would share one of my learnings in life. That frustration is just inspiration with no where to go. On my journey of personal growth, of which there have been many ups and downs, I have realised that no matter who you are or where you come from, we all have to overcome personal challenges. They may come in different forms, shapes and sizes but they are just as important and worthy of our attention. I have learnt to look at life and my interactions, not just by what I see and experience but being aware of the underlying energy making up those experiences. Gaining a deeper sense of awareness in life by breaking down the labels is liberating. One can gain a much clearer awareness of what is working and isnโ€™t working for them in their life. You start to feel how things affect you and build a stronger relationship with yourself. Having spent most of my life trying to change the world, it wasnโ€™t until I hit a crisis point that I realised that one canโ€™t truly change the world unless they can change their own world. That journey of taking ownership of my own life and being brave enough to sit with the feelings that arise is the bravest thing I have done and continue to do. Allowing energy to pass through you without judgement and not holding it down is beyond powerful. For me mental health is about truly embracing ones vulnerability and loving yourself in that space, no matter what! Because whether it is uncomfortable or not... it is you... and you are beautiful! We do not need to be anything or do anything to be worthy of love. If we truly love ourselves, we will feel love in all we meet, do and experience. One of the most powerful ways I found to help me through my own battles with mental health was to learn to meditate. Meditation is about feeling your way through problems, not thinking your way through them. Itโ€™s called mental health for a reason... Itโ€™s mental... So for me the solution has to come from an objective place of understanding. When your muscles are tight, you stretch. Well Meditation is like stretching for the mind and I donโ€™t know many people whoโ€™s mind in the 21st century that isnโ€™t in need of some stretching ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‡
