Accepting your imperfections

31 Jan

It would be difficult for anyone to find or have inner peace when they don’t accept they have imperfections. Unfortunately, the desire for perfection and the need for inner peace will always be a source of conflict.

I have seen first hand what happens, what happens when we feel the need to change something because we want it better than the way we have things now and it doesn’t end well. We need to be …

Your 5 a day

29 Jan

As part of a balanced diet, fruit and vegetables can help us stay healthy. The UK Government has been telling us that we need to have five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, which includes 5 portions of fruit and vegetables together.

Five reasons for us to consume our five portions

  • Fruit and vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals that include Vitamin C, potassium and folate;
  • They are an excellent source of dietary fibre, which can prevent constipation, digestion problems and help maintain a healthy gut. Fibre also reduces our risk of bowel cancer;

Insecurities & reinforcements

28 Jan

There is no doubt in my mind that any negative issues I deal with, reinforce my own insecurities about certain aspects of my past.

I believe the energy that circulates in my own family because of what we’re dealing with now, is presenting more negativity because of the stress and tension surrounding the present issue; which unfortunately has a knock on effect on my own issues from my childhood about …

My long-term intention is to get back into writing on some of the other categories too, just as soon as my life gets back on track. Eighteen months ago after the assault my life took a different …

Why we judge

25 Jan

Unfortunately, I’ve been judged many times and have had no choice but to walk away from those friends. It’s important for us to accept people for who they are and stop with the judgments.

Why do we judge?

  • We don’t agree with the other person, so we make a judgment;
  • We don’t like the other person, so we try to make things difficult for them;

My despondent day

24 Jan

I can’t be bothered to motivate myself today. I have that despondent feeling which comes over you.

Dealing with critical people

23 Jan

When someone is being critical, they use it as a means of criticism partly because they know they can and because we don’t know how to stop them. Nine times out of ten they will get away with it, until we learn to say No.

The problem with critical people is that they tend not to think about the way they speak, they just speak. They’ll just bleat something out, then think about what they’ve said after they’ve said it, by which time it’s too late to change what’s been said or perhaps they don’t think about …
