Happiness doesn’t have to involve good news or a desired outcome. Happiness doesn’t have to mean jumping up and down for joy. Happiness doesn’t have to mean winning the lottery, or having a bigger house or luxury car. That’s what we’ve made happiness mean. But that’s not what happiness really is. Happiness is an underlying peace with who you are and how your life is right in this moment. True happiness is acceptance of the imperfection of life. That we don’t have as much mone
"But"...one of my least favourite words! A lot of the time the small, and seemingly insignificant, little word ‘BUT’ can cause havoc. It can very easily steal the beauty of what came before it in a sentence. “I’m sorry but…” What was a beautiful gesture, an apology, becomes something else when BUT gets involved. The apology is no longer a genuine request for forgiveness because the word ‘BUT’ was included. BUT justifies, when most of the time the honourable thing to do is jus
I have spent many years of my life severely constipated 🤦♀️ I spent way too many years bloated and painfully full of what I don’t need; of what no longer serves me. I could go ten days without doing a number 2! Now I go like clockwork every day. And every time I do I give thanks and send thoughts of gratitude to the Universe I kid you not. Yes, even a number 2 is something you should not take for granted. Now everything within me ticks along like a fine tuned clock. I can s
Fear will stop us dead in our tracks if we let it. So don’t let it. It may feel like fear covers the soles of your feet in super glue and stops you dead in your tracks. It does that to me; I feel stuck in one spot and too terrified to move. Terrified that whichever way I go, and whatever happens next, will be too scary for me to cope with. And all I want to do is find a rabbit’s hole in the forest, and ask politely if I can join them down there. So I can hide from the world.
Sometimes we don’t know what to do. And we’re scared to death we’ll make the wrong decision. ⠀ We overthink it. We ask way too may people for their advice and opinion. And end up confusing ourselves even more. But sometimes to find the answer there must be no action at all. No thinking about it and no talking about. Because the Universe needs some time and space to work it’s magic and provide us with the answers we are looking for. If the issue or conundrum is swirling and wh
Isn't it about time you stopped listening to all the negative crap? So how do you stop the inner critic? The voice in your head that tells you that you're not enough, or you're too much, or life is always going to be hard, or you'll never get what you want, or your fat, or you're too thin... or... or... or... The way to stop paying attention to all that negative crap in your head is by realising it isn’t you. The voice is coming from within so you assume it’s yours. But the n
And the Universe made it very clear this message wasn’t just for me, but is an important message for all of us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is what the Universe said… “The world is a school and you are here to learn. What would be the point then, if you already knew everything you needed to know? If you already had all the answers? So don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t know. Or when you go the wrong way. Because that is the whole point of life. That’s exactly what we are here for. Stop
