The Greatest Surprise

kind heart and thoughtfulness

I have realised that when I know about an amazing event, activity or gift coming my way, the level of excited anticipation can reach a good 8 out of 10. However, when I am unexpectedly surprised by the kindness of others – even something like someone giving me a surprise cup of coffee – that excitment is, quite simply, off the scale! The elation that I feel when this happens it truly unbelieveable!

I promise you, it’s not really about the actual material thing that has amazingly come into my existence. It’s actually about the kind heart and thoughtfulness of the other person that puts me in this state of elation. The fact that that person took the time out of their day to think about me and show their beautiful heart through kindness.

I believe, the greatest surprise we can all offer someone, is the gift of the human spirit.

Which means, YOU, my dearest YOU, are the most precious gift of them all.

In Time You’ll See

Inspiration lives in you

In time you’ll see the difference between those people that truly matter to you and those that don’t.

In time you’ll see that some of the things you once worried about are now so insignificant.

In time you’ll see how strong you truly are when you need to be.

In time you’ll see that we all have weaknesses and that’s actually okay.

In time you’ll see that the bad days can turn good and the good days can turn bad.

In time you’ll see that some people just ‘get you’ and quite simply, others do not.

In time you’ll see how important a good night’s sleep is.

In time you’ll see that perfection is in the imperfections.

In time you’ll see that the right people will cross your path when you least expect it.

In time you’ll see that kindness is one of the greatest qualities a person can have.

AND HOPEFULLY, in time you’ll see that inspiration lives in you and you must share your greatness with the world.

IN TIME YOU’LL SEE!

Rise Up

Think about your THINKING today – is it rising high or laying low?

You’ve got to think high to rise! This line is from the famous poem entitled, “Thinking” by Walter D. Wintle

Small thinking won’t get you anywhere impactful. I encourage you to allow your thinking to “RISE UP” and take charge of your being.

Big thinking, doesn’t need to match up with big steps – baby steps will work too!

I would rather take tiny steps forward towards a GREAT VISION than take large steps towards a low level goal.

Think about your THINKING today – is it rising high or laying low?

Don’t read this article and do nothing my friend – for that truly is the lowest level of thinking and doing.

I encourage you to turn up the temperature in your life and rise like the heat on the sunniest of days.

Have a high level day hot stuff!

How to Make a Difference?

There is a leader in each and everyone of us.

You make a difference by firstly focussing on changing yourself for the better and then that has a real positive effect on others around you.

I never read a personal development book until I was in my 30s and then I was super hooked on how the teachings in those books had a positive influence on my thinking and then ultimately my doing.

You’ve probably heard the term “Leaders are Readers” and I think, there is a lot of truth in that popular saying.

Do you see yourself as a Leader or someone who likes to sit back and be led?

Personally, I think there is a leader in each and everyone of us and if you feel you’re not leading right now, it’s up to you to make the self-adjustment.

A leader doesn’t benefit from being loud, over confident or bullish in their ways and if you are currently experiencing that – then you’re definitely being wrongly led!

Sometimes, and more often than not, the BEST leaders are calm, focussed, quitely confident, deep listeners, super observant and highly self-aware. Great leaders are fully engaged in each and every person they influence. These type of leaders bring out positive energy in others, empowering untapped potential, leading to significant action. In my opinion, Leaders who truly shine, blend coaching and mentoring skills with experience and wisdom.

A true leader wants to bring out the best leadership qualities in others, then stands back, to see them soar.

Enhancing your attributes in self-leadership is one magnificent way to make a difference.

Please remember – Leadership isn’t only a ‘work’ thing – it’s a LIFE thing!

Fed Up?

We can always aim to make each moment better.

If the title enticed you to read more, then maybe, just maybe, you can relate right now!

Being, damn right, ‘fed up’ feels horrible but you can turn that feeling into something much more positive.

Why don’t you use the ‘fed up’ feeling as a positive trigger to change things up for yourself.

We all know life can’t entertain us every second of the day but we can always aim to make each moment better – even if it’s just a tad better!

Everytime I feel a sense of ‘something’ that doesn’t sit well with me – I use that exact feeling to turn things around.

If I’m bored – maybe I’ll go out a walk.

If I’m fed up – maybe I’ll phone my Mum.

If I’m frustrated – maybe I’ll read a good book.

If I’m stressed – maybe I’ll take a drive to the Coast.

If I’m sad – maybe I’ll be around happy people.

If I’m feeling lazy – maybe I’ll go out for a run.

If I’m tired – I’ll do something that energises me.

You see, these kind of low feelings can truly be the trigger for positive change, you’ve just got to get into the habit of doing it that way.

I don’t think it’s a case of, “easier said than done” – that phrase is just an excuse – let’s face it, the easy way out, is to be full of excuses.

If you find yourself making excuses – again, use that as a trigger to do something that will wake up your senses.

It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!

Calling All Dreamers

I believe, your greatest potential, hasn’t even scraped the surface, of what is possible for you.

Do you think you know what it’s all about, this life of yours?  What if you didn’t dream? What if you just lived your life on automatic pilot and never wished for anything better; never wanted to reach your potential; never wanted to be happier, or to receive more love in your life? What if, all you have right now, is exactly all it ever will be, period?

You’ve Arrived

That’s it, you’ve laid down your cards; you’ve taken life to as far as you could get it; and you’re here – you’ve arrived! – Does that thought suck or does that thought elate you?

A Dreamer and a Doer

Well, if you’re a dreamer like me – a dreamer and a doer like me, that thought probably doesn’t even come into your mind of existence.  I believe, your greatest potential, hasn’t even scraped the surface, of what is possible for you.  The dreamers mind is infinite and full of abundant creativity, waiting to be energised.

Glimmer of Hope

Everything starts with a dream, an idea, a glimmer of hope –  nothing could exist otherwise.  To achieve the greatest self, it takes the dreamer from one imaginary world into another – if they want to turn that dream into reality. You see, dreamers are inspired by the beauty and excitement of what could be.  So what could be?

Calling all dreamers…..YOU could take that dream, idea, magic of creativity and let it burst with energy inside of you, so much so, that it expands into a magnitude of inspired action, that will catapult your dream into this current reality. The pure magic of this though, is it can only come from the ultimate power within you. Yes, that’s right, only you have the key to release your uniqueness into the now.  So dream the dream but make this dream so highly compelling that it pulls you forth and turns into its own super creation.

There you have it – the power is within you. Grow that seed, give it your energy and watch with pure excitement, it manifesting before you.

Thank you for being here.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Clarity of Thought

What if you did something different today?

Albert Einstein Clarity of thought

It’s very easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of life, doing the same thing day in and day out. The treadmill of life can be a bit like that, if you let it. What if you did something different today? What if you surprised yourself with trying something new, maybe something that you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t quite got there yet?

Your Day

Let this be your day, your day to express yourself in a different way, your day to shine in a different way that adds sparkle to your own life and brightens up another’s life. What would that be for you?  When you gain clarity of thought in this area, it will immediately perk you up, you will feel excited and joyous about this new activity in your life.

Follow Your Heart

“Follow your heart”, it really is one of those sayings that a lot of people love and a lot of people quite frankly dismiss. Personally, I have been on both sides of the camp, at different times in my life – sometimes following my heart and sometimes following my head!  Lots of times, I didn’t follow through with the heart stuff because my head got in the way – is this good or bad?  No regrets, thats what I say – I am here now, grateful in this moment and that is what matters most to me now.

Dig Deep

What do you enjoy most about your life right now? Even if you are finding that question hard to answer, dig deep if you have to – you’ll most definitely find something and soon realise, you are a lot richer than originally thought.

Be Present

Review the experiences you are currently having in your life right now – are these experiences of quality, of fulfilment, of purpose?  Are you growing and contributing to life as much as you want to be?  Questions, questions, so many questions but the right question will lead you to be present in the fullness of life.

I ask you today, to ponder the thoughts that this post raises for you. Reading between the lines, What speaks true for you?  Here is one conclusion of many – heart with no effort, equals a head with more troubles – work that one out!!

Gain real clarity in why you do what you do – your head and your heart will thank you for it.

Thank you for being here.

It’s Your Life, Go Get It!!

Unhappy?

Don’t gamble your true happiness for a safe, dull and perhaps boring life.

Want to change something in your life for the better? I think, we all do.

Decide what that is for you and put everything you’ve got into it. 100% progressive effort, really can make the difference between a better situation and the BEST situation.

I encourage you today, to take your destiny by the hands and do what needs done.

Don’t expect anyone to carry you to your dream outcome – you’ve got to take full responsibility for making GREAT things happen.

Everyday, strive for impactful change that will have the most powerful ripple effect on your life and the life of others.

I write to YOU, yes YOU, who needs to hear these words and do something about the unhappy parts of your life.

Don’t gamble your true happiness for a safe, dull and perhaps boring life.

Are you in?

See you at the top wonderful YOU.

Are You Good Enough?

really believe that, YES, you are good enough

good enough

This is a question you maybe ask yourself every now and again. Your answer may vary depending on your mood, what’s going on around you and what you’re currently involved in.  However, I want you to believe, really believe that YES, you are good enough. In this moment now, you are good enough to take the next step, good enough to challenge your thinking and good enough to get back in control of your life.  As a matter of fact, good is not complimentary enough because you are amazing, wonderful and can create positive impact wherever you go – it’s all a matter of choice.

Limiting Beliefs

Never let your own limiting beliefs starve you from an unlimited amount of possibilities that are open for you.  Master the right thinking, thoughts that will serve you well and thoughts that will challenge the norm and catapult you into a new, invigorating and forever thriving life.

Aim High

I encourage you to set your target, aim high and focus on building momentum – reviewing progress along the way. Don’t live a dull, boring and unfulfilled life because you are set in your ways or lack the energy to do anything about it. The less you do, the less motivated you will feel, so embrace the opportunity in the now and conquer the life that you want.

Winning Formula

We all dream of better things, a better life, more happiness and more fulfilment but dreaming and doing are completely two different things.  One without the other proves to be meaningless, but combine the two together and you get a winning formula for the life you deserve.

Break the Chains

The days, weeks, months and years can go past really quickly in an unchallenged lack lustre life.  Raise your standards and don’t allow yourself to settle for what currently is. Break the chains from your robotic life and feel alive again and if you don’t remember how feeling alive really feels, then this is surely your cue to take over.

Over and out…….keep at it!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

Go with your Gut

your intuition already knows what the answer is

go with your gut

You’ve checked the pros and cons; you’ve overthought the decision; you’ve assessed the situation; and you’ve mapped out different outcomes…..but what it really all boils down to is – what is your gut really saying?  

No matter how much you over analyse a situation and deliberate over an important decision, nothing will give you the absolute satisfaction of that “going with your gut” feeling.

Your intuition already knows what the answer is and you’re over analysing is creating an unnecessary battle.  Surrender to your heart and go with your gut!!

This one’s for you, do it today.

It’s your life, go get it!!

What’s Your Inner Strategy?

Behind every strategy is another strategy – let me explain.

Behind every strategy is another strategy – let me explain.

So let’s say you want to change something for the better in your life.  Let’s say for example, you want to change your career and go in a completely different direction. Let’s say you want to move away from your Management Consultancy Business and progress with a new career in property development.  So first of all, I would say, “Hey you, that’s truly amazing, I admire your spirit, drive and determination to change your future. Congratulations! You’ve taken your very first step. Well done!”  Now the next part for you is likely to be exciting, crazy, liberating, fulfilling, challenging and possibly frightening – all at once!!  You’ve gained the knowledge, you’ve got the outer strategy and you are damn well ready to execute – oh yes, you definitely know where you’re going with this one.  However, I also want you to think about your inner strategy – what do I mean by that?

Your inner strategy is that vitally important checklist, the inner compass guiding and strengthening you on the unknown path ahead.  This inner strategy is the imperative foundations that you will build your outer strategy upon – you’ve got to get the inner strategy right…...first and foremost.  On your inner strategy checklist you will be clear on the following areas:

  • I clearly know my core values and what each value means to mean.
  • I specifically know what is personally important to me going forward in life – I know my non-negotiables.
  • I fully believe in my capabilities, unlimited potential and I have faith in myself, even when there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.
  • I am fully supportive of me, as much as I want solid support from the people closest to me, this is not necessary, as it is my responsibility to support myself with every choice, decision and commitment I make.
  • I have a contingency plan containing critical action points that serve my inner wellbeing, if and when difficult stresses arise – I know what’s in my combat toolbox to strengthen my mind, body and help me regain any lost focus.
  • I am confident, resilient and have an abundance of energy that is absolutely necessary to the success of my new vision.
  • I am not afraid to ask for help when I need it. I believe that asking for help is a necessary part of the process.
  • I am clear on my standards and expectations and I will not deviate from these in challenging times.
  • I will regularly take quiet time out, to reflect, review and refresh my thinking.
  • I am totally committed to the end goal, however I will remain present in the process and give everything my best shot.
  • I promise to value my self-worth and continue to grow and contribute to my purpose at every opportunity.

Your inner strategy is more important than the outer strategy. You’ve got to be clear on this stuff at the very beginning because if you are unclear on any of these statements, any slight failure along the way, may crumble your progress.

What I am saying is, go to work on yourself, know your inner strategy, have clarity and self awareness about you, for this will be the BEST start you can ever give yourself before any major life change.  This is the sure start that will inevitably lead you to success.

Thank you for being here.

It’s Your Life, Go Get It!!

Don’t Waste Your Time

choose wisely

Your time is so truly precious.

A very wise man, I once worked with, said to me, “Claire, time is gold…..time is gold…..TIME IS GOLD“. Sadly, this wonderful man is no longer here now but the wisdom that he shared, lives on in me and in others he had deep and meaningful conversations with.

If you have gold, LOTS of gold, your appreciation for time and fulfilling relationships is often enhanced. Maybe, this is because, the strive for gold, has now been achieved and you then realise, you’re still searching for that missing jigsaw piece – but maybe it was there all along.

What if, everything you feel you need right now, you already have?

What if, you viewed life with your heart, rather than your eyes?

What if, that thing you fear, is nothing but a fragment of your imagination?

What if, you dropped all internal doubt and went for what you want in life?

What if, time IS gold and material gold is in the way of your happiness?

Lots and lots of, “what if” questions, that either mean nothing to you or offer you a different perspective on life – it really is your choice what to think.

All I am saying here is, PLEASE, don’t waste your time on climbing a mountain, you don’t really want to climb. What I would say though, is choose wisely, which mountain you DO want to climb.

After all, TIME IS GOLD!

POETRY CORNER #1

set your sail

I’m going to make every Thursday on this blog “POETRY CORNER”. The reason being, I really LOVE writing poetry, especially with a positive spin on it or words that showcase a deep sense of inner wisdom.

So today I share with you Poetry Corner #1:

Being YOU

To feel alive,
fresh and true,
steal the show,
by being YOU.

Never let,
a negative voice,
hold you back,
or change your choice.

For you are special,
one of a kind,
uniquely passionate,
with a genius mind.

So set your sail,
to better lands,
where your dreams,
are in your hands.

You’ve Got 100 Days

pick a feasible goal that you really want to achieve

Whenever I want to make a significant change in my life, I give myself a 100 day challenge to make it happen.

I will set the goal in hand, mark the start and end date and then everyday, I just bloody well GO FOR IT!

I have read so many times over and over again that it takes 21 days to break a habit but unfortunately that has never been true for me. I know this, because I have put it to the test many times before. I would be interested to know, has it ever worked for you?

In my opinion if you aim for a really juicy goal that you want to achieve and stay wholeheartedly committed to achieving it – the 100 day rule, gives you more than enough time. I have used this for daily running challenges, healthy eating changes and life-changing career decisions. 100 days, to me, is the PERFECT timeline for making a real positive impact on your life.

So let’s say I start today, 1 August 2022 and set myself a goal to write one blog post everyday for the next 100 days. That means, the 100th day lands on 8 November 2022 and I just know that by that day a HUGE positive impact will be made on my life – for me, it’s almost guaranteed.

You want a new job? Try the 100 day challenge.

You want a new relationship? Do the 100 day challenge.

You want to get fitter? Action the 100 day challenge.

You want to move home? Apply the 100 day challenge.

You want to start a new business? Implement the 100 day challenge.

It even works for training for a marathon – and I’ve run four!

And the goals list goes on……

The key here is, you must be committed to the goal in hand and you must NEVER miss out a day – if you do, give yourself the consequence of needing to start from day 1 again! (But then that wouldn’t be 100 days anymore).

Whatever date you are reading this, pick a feasible goal that you really want to achieve. Mark down the start of your 100 day challenge and highlight your end date – now it’s time, to GET TO WORK!

Are you up for the 100 Day Challenge?

Don’t overthink it – START NOW!

Oh and please let me know how you get on – I want to hear your SUCCESS story, so that it can INSPIRE and MOTIVATE others.

YOU’VE GOT THIS!

Yesterday’s Dreams

it does matter that you start

Let’s hope you are not craving today, the sheer magnetic power of your unfulfilled dreams – for that truly is a difficult pill to swallow.

What if though, you had another chance?

What if, you decided today, right now, to simply, GO FOR IT!

It doesn’t matter if you start a little or a lot of late, but it does matter that you start.

Imagine yourself, right now, in that place of achieving that very dream – isn’t it just, a truly wonderful feeling.

Yesterday’s dreams, are still there for the taking. Never close the door on what your passionate heart longs for.

Think of a world where everyone is using their innate talents to achieve dreams of greatness.

Now that truly is a dream come true.

Don’t limit yourself any longer – go do that thing, you know is absolutely meant for you.

Impactful Thinking

don’t be scared to demonstrate the best of you

There is absolute genius in you and you’ve got to believe that.

No other person in this world has had the exact same experiences as you or thinks exactly like you.

You can always bring ‘another level’ to whatever you are involved in.

Don’t be scared to demonstrate the best of you. Be proud of you and your true potential, enabling you to get to where you want to go.

Never shy away from what you truly deserve to have in your life. Only you can hold you back – now read that line again!

Be a sponge for learning new things, no matter what age you are and ensure you focus your energy on what really matters to you.

Mix all of the above with undeniable self-belief and you’re on your way to not only changing yourself for the better but to having a positive impact on the world too.

You may not think about it in this way, but you really can inspire others with what you say and what you do – that’s how powerful you truly are.

Go out today and show everyone what you’ve got. Your future success relies on today’s impactful thinking, so make sure your brave heart, leads you through every unknown battle and into the life you truly deserve.

Remember, the Champion is in YOU.

Drive or be Driven

always visualise yourself winning

Personally, I prefer to drive my own way through life – sometimes the journey is smooth and other times it’s a very bumpy ride.

Life, with all its twists and turns, can somedays be higher than high, then the next day, lower than low – I guess, that’s just the way life is and we must, stay strong and roll with the punches.

Set backs in life are inevitable but it’s important that you remain determined and resilient as ever, as these powerful qualities bring real passion to the common phrase “keep going”.

Always visualise yourself WINNING, no matter what’s going on around you. I encourage you to DRIVE from within and get to your desired destination, with that amazing feeling of real self-achievement.

Remember, your deep experience in life, love and in work. You are crowned everyday with unique capabilities that are open to true growth and self-expansion

I challenge wonderful YOU, to forge your way forward into achieving your goals and aspirations.

Ponder on this thought for today…..DRIVE or be DRIVEN?

A Life Worth Living

you can always start today

What would it take from you each and everyday to lead a life worth living?

It’s a simple, yet HUGE question that is important for you to answer.

What does “a life worth living” specifically mean to YOU?

I want you to really think about that today and answer it with an honest heart.

To me, life is always worth living – even on tough days, there is always a golden nugget of learning to be found.

May every step that you take on this journey of life, be special and meaningful and if it’s not?…..well, you can always start today.

Maybe this is your calling!

Sunlight in your Heart

the heart and mind is one

No matter how dark and cold it gets, remember there is always warm sunlight in your heart. For your heart is honest, whole and pure and is not driven by ego or external factors.

As we grow older, the mind takes on a new life. Sometimes and often a lot of the time, it is a reflection of our current environment. However, the heart is not led by the ‘outer world’ the heart manifests beauty from your ‘inner world’. The heart doesn’t need to think about right or wrong, the heart just knows.

Your brain, in all its neurological glory, is there to help the heart survive and to protect it from potential dangers. The brain, however, may sometimes overthink and get in the way of the heart and its natural pathway.

So how can we get the best out of the heart and the mind, so that they blend together so beautifully?

I believe, that if you do work from the heart, then the mind aligns – almost as if the heart and mind is one. The mind becomes at peace and the heart exudes only love. The mind then starts to exude its greatest genius and this ultimately forms magnifence in material matters.

If you are stressed right now, I bet it has grown from ‘out of sync, mind work and most definitely not from pure heart work.

I want you to think about how you get your mind and heart to work more coherently. It is in the unificiation of both these parts, that will create the perfect inner and outer life for you.

Don’t Play the Blame Game

forge forward with all your might and self-power

The title says it all really, doesn’t it?

If you ever, EVER hear yourself blaming others for something that is NOT going right in your life, I want you to STOP that useless thinking RIGHT NOW!

You are where you are, because of YOU. Hold yourself accountable for your own decisions, choices and wants that took you to where you are standing today.

If you are NOT happy with where you’re at, don’t go blaming anyone else for that. Take control of the situation NOW and do what you need to do to CHANGE that.

The past is the PAST, the present goes so fast, it is basically the past – so focus on your future wants and needs and bring your “A” game to the table in order to achieve your desires.

Don’t ever play the “blame” game – I promise you, it’s pulling you backwards and that’s not a progressive direction to be heading in.

Forge forward with all your might and self-power and let go of that draining blaming stuff today.

Go on then – oh and don’t blame me if you don’t do it!

I see you flying high…..always and I want you to see it too!

Do You Know?

drive yourself forward into your dreams

Do you know what it takes from you to reach your highest potential?

Do you know what you exactly want from life?

Do you know where you want to see yourself in 2-5 years from now?

Do you know what your core values are and if you are aligned with them right now?

Do you know the special qualities that you bring to the table and how to make sure you are utilising them as best you can?

Do you know how to unleash the greatest parts of you, so that you can contribute effectively to your dreams, goals and aspirations?

Now, turn each “do you know” question into “what will it take”; “what do I want” “what are my”……

It’s important that you DO KNOW the answer to these questions and it is more important that if you want to achieve these desires for yourself, that you take committed action on a daily basis to make them happen.

Hold yourself accountable and drive yourself forward into your dreams.

Take It On

Never doubt your own capabilities and the capacity of your true potential.

Push yourself forward into achieving more and more each day.

It’s time to “Take it On” and awaken the deepest passion inside of you.

Your dreams and goals won’t wait for you – it really is time to focus on the NOW!

What do you need to do today to ensure a better tomorrow?

What one thing can you do in this very moment to kickstart the process?

Talking, wishing and hoping won’t get you there – it’s time to walk the talk!

Monday Morning Blues?

you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there

I can honestly say, I haven’t had the Monday Morning Blues for a good few years now and I never want to have them in the future either.

I remember, in my much younger days, getting these feelings, which often started on the Sunday evening!

I know, most of you can relate to those feelings of ‘dread’ going into a job that, for your own reasons, didn’t feel right.

I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I ever got so low again going into a job, I would sort that stuff out super fast.

Thankfully, I know what I want from a job and how I can utilise my skills and experience to contribute effectively. I also know how I want to be led and empowered to bring my best game to the table on a daily basis.

You have the true capacity and pure potential to achieve everything you want from your work and you are in control of whether you make it or break it.

I believe you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there, so make sure you bring your ‘A’ game every single time.

There is this great quote by Rumi, “what you seek, is seeking you”, and for me, this quote is a wonderful reminder to never doubt your capabilities and be mindful of the many doors that are open for you – just walk right in.

You got this – always!

Inspired by Truth

honouring your core values

Be inspired by the truth and deepest wisdom that lives and breathes inside of you.

Intuitively, I believe you know what truly feels right for you and what is feeling forced.

I know we all know this but for some reason, we don’t always live by it.

When I say “forced”, I definitely don’t mean “challenged”, for I see the latter as leading to growth and that is such a good thing.

‘Forced’ is the opposite of truth and a backwards step away from who you really are.

By focussing your energies on honouring your core values, you feel free, happier and super strong.

Always stay true to yourself, for this is your life to live and you deserve it to be GREAT!

Running for the Hills

stay in that “feel good” mode

I love outdoor running, I find it energising and therapeutic at the same time. I have noticed that when I take a break from running for a few months or so, I don’t feel as good.

This morning, I did an early morning run to the Italian Fountains in Hyde Park, London – it was beautiful and so refreshing.

Running is something I have enjoyed since a child and I guess my love for it has stayed the same.

I think it’s important in life to do something that you love and is very good for you. Think about what activities give you the greatest enjoyment and uplift your energy.

I encourage you to support your body and mind in your daily habits – it has such a positive knock-on effect in everything in your life.

So whether you’re, running for the hills today or rolling down the hills – stay in that ‘feel good” mode.

Wishing you a happy and fulfiled day.

Finding Your Happy

happiness will pop in and out of my life

There are many different indicators of where happiness exudes from and I don’t think there is a ‘one size fits’ all.

I think each individual is so extremely complex, wonderful and unique that it would be quite impossible to come up with a general list for this.

There is nothing ‘general’ about being happy – let me explain.

Through different stages of life, my own quest for happiness has been determined by many different factors – mostly, where I am at, what I am doing, where I am going, who I am with and how I am feeling. Some of this stuff can relate to external positioning and material gains and sometimes that kinda stuff did make me ‘kinda’ happy.

However, there is a huge gap here that always feels unfulfiled in terms of ‘happiness’ when I feel out of alignment with my inner values, sense of meaningful contribution and working towards a purposeful vision.

You see ‘happiness’ I think, can never be extended for a ‘forever’ period of time – life just doesn’t work out that way.

I think what we are however looking for, which I feel, is much more powerful than happiness, is finding peace of mind and harmonious balance from within. When this is achieved, it’s like being in ‘flow’ and it offers a real sense of inner freedom that can never be captured.

The older and wiser I get, I realise that happiness will pop in and out of my life, just the same way excitement does and feeling motivated to do something.

If I am searching for ‘me’ in the whole process of life, then it is in the silence of the mind that the best part of me whispers.

Enjoy your happy times, for they are indeed precious, like sparkly, shiny jewels. The real sparkle however, comes from your own inner light, peacefully flowing in the freedom of your heart. Some even call that love.

Strong Foundations

it will be worth it in the long run

Whatever you’re setting out to achieve in life, make sure you focus on putting those strong foundations in place.

If you’re trying to build on shaky ground, it’s not going to be too long before things topple over.

Identify what each pillar of foundation needs to be and go about strengthening each one of them.

It may take much more time to do this at the beginning but I guarantee you, it will be worth it in the long run.

Now then, what are you going to build today?

Go Win

it’s time to get to work

Set yourself up to win, for it is that kind of self-belief that will help you tackle any obstacles that come in your way.

When your heart is focussed on the winning path, it is only a matter of time before that gold medal is in your hands.

Use your inner power to catapult you into success and your winning smile will light up the darkest room.

Make "Go Win" the motto of your everyday and visualise the positive end result that you want to achieve.

See yourself there, now it's time to get to work!

I See You

everything you give,
your caring heart,
the way you live.

I see you always,
mindful and pure,
helping another,
you are their cure.

I believe in you,
so strong and brave,
you are the gift,
everyone of us crave.

Because You Shine

I am here because you shine

I closed my eyes and walked into the light.

There I met an older and much wiser woman.

She smiled at me.

She held a beautiful azure blue flower in her hand.

She took my hand and placed the flower in it.

Without any words, she gave me this message…..

Your magical heart can make the invisible visible.
I am here because you shine.
The blue of this flower represents the ocean and the sky.
The petals represent the fragility of life.
The wonder is not in the flower.
The miracle is in you.

The old lady then disappeared.

The flower turned into tiny little seeds in the palm of my hand.

I then knew, it was time to self-nurture and grow.

Hopeful Window

see your future blend with your dreams

Never try to escape from your inner light, for there lies the truth and wisdom in everything that you purposefully do.

Always look out of the bright and hopeful window and see your future blend with your dreams.

Generate a warm feeling of abundance that attracts wellness and happiness into your life.

Remember, without you, I am nothing and your love will find a way.

Blue Rivers Run Deep

swim in inspiration

Empowering thoughts,
tell the story,
a mind so strong,
brings love and glory.

Sweet nature's gift
is here to keep,
a heartfelt wave,
blue rivers run deep.

Swim in inspiration,
live by the lake,
the current breathes life,
into each step you take.

Uplift My Spirits

to a happier place

Uplift my spirits,
higher than the sun,
guide me through,
all that needs done.

Tell me everything,
I need to hear,
even in silence,
let it be clear.

Sometimes I feel lost,
strange in a way,
not in the crowd,
but bewildered each day.

The path I have chosen,
doesn't feel right,
how did I get here,
without the pure light?

Is there a turning,
to a happier place,
where doing what I love,
fulfils me with grace?

If what I do seek,
is surely seeking me,
maybe this wrong track,
is where I should be?

And what if the rainbow,
is not far away,
and its spectrum of love
guided me to here today?

Excited for Change

you were always the answer

When you really start to get excited about the positive changes you want to make in your life, that type of feeling becomes a true magnet for what you want to manifest.

This type of future thinking – excited energy, really does bring about the right vibe for wonderful transformations to take place.

So don’t focus too much on the problem, keep your mind on the solution and desired outcomes.

I feel super excited for you because I know your greatest potential will be your mirror very soon.

It’s time to strengthen your soul with the deepest power of visualisation and self-belief.

You were always the answer.

Keep that thinking high and your actions higher.

In the Heat of the Night

stay ON IT!

Your mindset can uplift you to the highest of highs or the lowest of lows, so please make sure you focus on the former, rather the latter here.

In the heat of the night, keep your cool by sorting out in your mind, what needs done in order to make things better for you.

What do you need and want to change?

What do you need to do today to keep you moving forward?

What will you commit to doing and how will you hold yourself accountable?

When it gets to the “enough is enough” stage, it’s amazing the amount of energy you can conjure up in order to change a tough situation around.

It’s you against you – there is never anyone else involved.

Prove to yourself today that you can definitely do what needs done and then get busy doing that. If you do that over the next 48 hours – WOW, what a real difference you will make to your life in just a short space of time. Imagine then, you kept going with that positive change for a year!

Stay magical, stay you and stay ON IT!

It’s the only way to a better way.

It’s Time

you know what you need to do

Never is there a better time than NOW to change things in your life for the better. NOW is it.

It’s time to dust down the current you and start to polish yourself up into a brighter, more positive self.

You know what you need to do – you’ve always known. So just take that one tiny baby step in the right direction.

The new you can’t wait any longer, it’s time.

Believe me……it really is time!

It’s your life, go get it!

Breathe Again

clouds move the rain

Take a deep breath in and know you have this moment right here, right now and no one can take this specialness away from you.

BREATHE AGAIN

Each space in time,
can give you this,
the calmest breath,
serenity so bliss.

For when you know,
to breathe again,
the sun it rises,
clouds move the rain.

A chosen moment,
yours alone,
heavens open,
a miracle zone.

Momentum Moves You

get things moving

When you build up momentum in the pursuit of a dream or goal, it really does multiply your energies.

Mostly in the beginning of a “start up” phase, or for example, learning a new skill, it can take a whole lot of effort and focus to build those foundations and get things moving.

This is when the power of momentum really does help to make a positive difference.

So, keep up that consistency and channel your laser focus energy into what needs done and soon that magical momentum will kick in.

Momentum moves you and it can move moutains too.

I see you there….. WELL DONE!

A New Mind

welcome a better future

Wake up with a new mind today and cast away the shadows of the past that don’t serve your better self.

What thinking will shape your life today into a better a tomorrow?

What habits do you need to take on board consistently that will welcome a better future into your being?

Keep it simple, keep it real and keep it YOU.

The Sun’s Energy

in the deepest cave of hope

In the purest sunlight, the heart shines on like a beacon of love, dancing in the deepest cave of hope.

It is in this magnetic power a new mind is born and faraway horizons seem so close you can touch them.

Maybe all of the things in life, that don’t seem to make sense, were never to be thought about in that way.

What if, you were supposed to stay so present in each moment that thoughts of fear and doubt never ever manifested.

True thought can steer your mind in different directions – and the body, if in conflict or alignment with that thinking, will honour its preferred state of being.

Is your mind leading the way or is it your body? I think neither! I believe the magical field that surrounds your being always empowers the best out of you. It’s time to let this heavenly power communicate with your senses and create miracles through you.

You have everything you need, right here, right now to go far beyond what you think you are capable of achieving.

The sun’s energy cannot exist without you, that’s how important you are to this world.

Light Comes Back

stars appear

This is one of my favourite original quotes and the excerpt is taking from a short poetic story I wrote many years ago. My plan is to turn the story into a book one day….watch this space!

“The midnight sky is vast and black, yet stars appear and light comes back.”

A Wonderful You

petals of love

Amidst the clouds,
of a foggy mind,
hard to see,
difficult to find.

Appears hope,
just a glimmer,
igniting life,
joy does simmer.

Time means nothing,
as people and places,
open our hearts,
smiles on their faces.

Flowers like heaven,
flourish and bloom,
petals of love,
enlighten each room.

Be still in the now,
as heartbeats awaken,
a wonderful you,
is there for the taking.

The “Success” of Blogging

Just start NOW!

I have been blogging on and off for a number of years now. I absolutely love writing, especially creative writing that has a poetic and uplifting feel about it.

The only thing that keeps me going and writing in this blog for so long, is that I continue to write about things, I really love writing about. That, for me, is one of the keys to becoming a successfull blogger.

The word “success” can mean many things to bloggers but for me it means, loving the whole creative process of the blogging journey and engaging with the blogging community that are so encouraging and supportive.

So if you’re thinking of starting a blog, please don’t think, just start NOW. Don’t think about, what shall I write about to get followers and what will the people out there want from me? Write about what YOU are deeply passionate about and believe me your best writing WILL lead you to success in a much more meaningful and fulfilling way.

So what are you waiting for? I told you not to think about!

Go Go GO FOR IT lovely you – you’ve GOT THIS!

The Greatest Stuck Road

when stuggles keep coming

The greatest stuck road,
can hold you back,
invisible barriers,
keep you off track.

A bumpy path,
often uphill,
it takes real effort,
and lots of skill.

But never is there,
a journey so tough,
that is able to stop you,
no matter how rough.

For deep passion prevails,
every single time,
when struggles keep coming,
and nothing seems fine.

Your wonderful heart,
goes through every test,
until you reach the top,
where the view is the best.

Your Life Has Meaning

a breath in time

The space to think,
on a white blank page,
a breath in time,
lives an empty stage.

Thoughts they simmer,
only to unfold,
memories of love,
treasures of gold.

Invisible hearts,
surround your being,
the clock moves on,
your life has meaning.

When Light Meets the Dark

glowing magnetically

The light so daring,
burning bright,
glowing magnetically,

dancing in ambience,
shining like treasure.

A symbol of desire,
a glistening spark,
dreams are awakened,
when light meets the dark.

Feelings have power,

feelings are you,
feelings are loving,
