Take out the worry

29 Jun

Unfortunately when you’re more concerned with what other people think, you’ll never have peace of mind. When you continuously worry and lose sight of what’s important in your life, you’ll never have peace of mind.

When you can’t focus on what’s ahead of you because of all the above, you’ll never have peace of mind; when you have little self-confidence you’ll never have peace of mind. However, when you …

My health & food

28 Jun

Although it’s often difficult for any of us with health issues to plan ahead, planning ahead for me primarily depends on how well I’m dealing with my issues around my health; whether I eat the right foods; whether I eat at the right times; whether I go too long between meals or whether I eat the right amount. It also depends on what I’m dealing with at the time. On a more positive note, I feel as though I am beginning to understand …

Rid yourself of clutter

23 Jun

Not only do we spend a life accumulating clutter of the material kind, we also accumulating worry, negative self-talk and guilt, all called mental clutter.

All of these things can become distractions after a while and can make us physically unwell. When we learn to let go we give ourselves more time to concentrate on our lives positively and get to stay well in the process. When we learn to simply things in our life …

A fork in the road

22 Jun

In the last 7 years I have been faced with many challenging decisions that I liken to a fork in the road. A fork in the road reminds us that we have choices to make; a fork in the road reminds us that we have lessons to learn; a fork in the road reminds us that life isn’t all that it seems that sometimes we have to make different choices; a fork in the road reminds us that sometimes we have to stand back on life; a fork in the road reminds us …

Just listen

21 Jun

Something inspirational:

“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”
