“Happiness, not in another place, but in this place…
not for another hour, but for this hour.”
What a beautiful place is Llyn Brenig. Situated in the unspoilt countryside of the Denbigh Moors, on the border between the counties of Conwy and Denbighshire, it is one of the largest lakes in Wales.
There are nature trails, archaeological trails, picnic areas, water sports, a visitor centre, an exhibition telling the story of Llyn Brenig and its archaeological history, and a restaurant with good food and great views from the terrace.

It is 2.30am on Sunday morning and I should be fast asleep. But I need to clear my mind, to write down my thoughts, and I want to share them with you:
I realised yesterday that I was holding on to the past, trying to take it forward with me into the future. It doesn’t work. I tend to hang onto certain things way past their sell-by date. I don’t mean in a physical way. I’m not a material hoarder by any means. This is about emotional hoarding. I have attachments, a need to hold on tightly to things that have served me in years gone by.
But they have no part in my future, and now I must release them and let them go. I must allow the sun to set on my past.
It is time to move forward into a bright new future. Clutching onto the past limits forward movement. Progress is impeded. Life is for living fully in the present moment, not for dwelling in the dead and buried past. What an important lesson I have learned!! And what a relief and a release!! Now I can go back to sleep. Thanks for listening. See you again soon.
