I Enjoy Being Me

Comments Off on I Enjoy Being Me
What a wonderfully unique person I am! I love how it feels to be me.  I enjoy my life and cherish all the little nuances that occur every day. I am where I am in life because of the choices I made and the work I put into being precisely who I am.  I am exactly the person I want to be. I will continue to grow and learn new things.  I will continue to experience new things in life and transform for the better; this is part of being me. I have surrounded myself with wonderful people and I enjoy who I am when I am with them. I enjoy who I am when I am alone as well.  I take pleasure in self-reflection and I appreciate how I permit myself to enjoy...

The Joy of Laughter

Comments Off on The Joy of Laughter
When you laugh, your brain produces natural mood elevators that free you from pain and suffering. Laughter is therapeutic. Humour can transform your emotions and mind and it can cure your body.

Balance

Comments Off on Balance
Balance is the key to life.  If we had sunshine all the time without rain, the plants would suffer.  If we only focused on one area of our life such as work, other areas such as our relationships, health and fitness, personal development, may suffer. Balance is about your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs.  When we focus too much on one area, other areas in our life are impacted and, in some cases, other areas of our life suffer. We have to be aware of over-scheduling ourselves.  Aiming for total balance is perhaps aiming too high – it is all about overall well-being.  Combine being at work with your friendship groups.  You could even exercise at lunch time with some of your work colleagues.  That means you are working on...

Is My Dream Possible?

Comments Off on Is My Dream Possible?
Many of us don’t even spend a lot of time thinking about what we really want from our life.  Some of us who do, may be asking the wrong question.  What question is that?  It is “Is my dream possible?” Then they look at their life, their abilities and their conditions to determine the answer. The answers to those questions may be convincing.  You may look at where you live, your age, your bank statement. However, the world is an interesting place.  The universe is full of endless possibilities.  Many say, by definition, it is unlimited. When you look at your current life, your current abilities and your current conditions to determine your dream, you squeeze the infinite into a tiny little picture of what you think is possible. We have to really dream...

Lessons To Be Learnt This Year

Comments Off on Lessons To Be Learnt This Year
Our age doesn’t matter; we all have lessons to learn in life.  Take time this year to look at the people around you and the things that are happening to you and look for what you can learn. Be aware and open for your lessons this year. When you take on board the lessons that are around you, it means that next time you find things will be easier for you. If you are someone who has the same problems or difficulties as you have always had then perhaps it means you are not learning the lessons that you need to learn. Be open to what is going on in your life, the good and the bad and look for the lessons to be learnt.
