Meet Debra

248507_10150209018433856_1521541_nHello & Welcome

I’m Debra. I’m in my early 40’s and I live in Yorkshire, England.

I enjoy going on adventures, visiting places, spending time in nature, the seasons, yoga, walking, swimming, reading and crafty things. I also collect vintage ladybird books.

My theme for my life in 2017 is wellness. 

I randomly burst into song. I can turn anything into a song.

I love dancing , the wilder the better

Why Cultivating Time?

When I became a blogger I started to look at the world a bit differently. My blog has made me more reflective about my own life and the world around me. When I blog about something I’ve done I develop my curiosity and learn to appreciate things more. In contemplating what to blog about, you look for and create ‘blog worthy stuff’ in your life. My blog is a way to cultivate my time.

I have been blogging since July 2015. I started my blog partly out of curiosity and to help me make some changes and shift a few things about in my life. I have learnt a lot and met some great people along the way. I really enjoy the blogging community, making connections with different people across the world, with different interests and passions.

I hope you will stick around and cultivate some time with me. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Best Wishes

  1. Dear Debra, First let me thank you for the genuine inspiration you have shared with me. You have been very consistent & very reactive. My interaction with you in our posts are amazing experience in my Blogging life. Though I never have met you personally, I really felt that I can totally understand how you feel in your posts, I feel you and I admire you for the powerful words of wisdom you have endowed in me.

    I wanted to pass on to you the 7-Day nature photo challenge. I hope you will take this as a compliment and way for you to share more of one of your passion, the Nature.Even without the challenge, I still want you to know that I am grateful I belong in your circle & I appreciate the comments you have given to me.

    • Aw thank you sooooooooo much for this post. What you have said is really, really lovely. It has made my week. I really do appreciate what you have said about me and my blog Cultivating Time. I really enjoy following your blog too. You have some lovely, thought provoking posts.

      I would like to take up this challenge but I am not able to do it for a while. I am currently doing the Colour My World Challenge which involves lot of photos posts. This is a 4 month challenge running until the end of April. Would this challenge be something I could maybe pick up in a few months time?

  2. What a nice blog! I was happy when Charlotte Graham talked about your blog name and said she liked it. That was the first thing that caught my attention when I got here – the blog name. It’s very nice; and I like your thoughts. I look forward to reading more from you. Shine on!

  3. Namaste :)

    Just loved your blog name. What a perfect name you have chosen for what you intend to do here. It’s like a Gardner giving name to her flowers… I hope to be part of your journey where you cultivate your dreams into reality and live a wonderful life filled with tons of moments to remember. :) What is your name though? Would like to call you by your name :)

    See you around have a great day.

  4. Cultivatingtime certainly catched my attention on a fellow bloggers wall!!! I think we all need to realize what are priorities are in life and most importantly make sure to move them up and down the ladder depending on the need of the hour. I really enjoyed your post on taking a break or coming back from a break in blogging. Glad to meet u .
    Happy Blogging!!

  5. I am so happy to have come across your blog in this vast world of Blog Land (which I shall now be calling it as well, thanks!). The purpose of your blog, the photos, the writing — it’s all phenomenal, and I have no doubt it will be as meaningful to us your readers as it will be to you personally.

    And I particularly am fond of your blog name. The notion of nurturing and growing meaningful time as it seems to pass quicker and quicker is invaluable to living the lives we went. Also, from a geeky sci fi perspective, I was thinking about your blog name earlier today and thought it made for a cool time distortion device in a story!

    Happy blogging!

    • Aw Charlotte – thank you so much for this amazing feedback. It really does mean a lot to me. I’m really touched by it. I’m so glad you like the name. It took me a while to find a title that hadn’t already been taken that fitted with my ideas. Yes, this blog is helping me so I’m pleased I started my adventure. It’s a fantastic creative outlet. The fact that others like it too is a huge bonus. I love the idea of a time distortion device. I’m now wondering how I could use my blog concept in my ‘soon to be’ Steam punk persona! Hooray for Blog Land!
