Battling the Ordinary

let’s enjoy the process and give back as much as we can

Rightly or wrongly, I’ve always battled with living the ordinary kinda life – I just didn’t and still don’t see that for myself.

So, 49 years young, how’s it all looking now?

Well, honestly, probably 75% of it still feels like “ordinary” to me but I now have an absolute CLEAR VISION and SUPER STRONG FOCUS on how to change that to EXTRAORDINARY!

“Bit by bit”, has always been a key phrase for me and it really does work, if you stay consistent and committed to your goal in action.

So what will make the difference now, as opposed to 5, 10 or 20 years ago?

Well, this time, I am building on absolute SOLID ground and my core values are so deep rooted into the purpose behind my vision that even a magnitude 10 earthquake could not shake me off this meaningful path.

You see, I never had that before. I always had the belief and the self-confidence but spinning too many plates, led to too many distractions and therefore building on shaky ground – that was never going to last longterm.

I also just ‘feel it in my bones’ this time around. Everything seems to be pointing in the right direction and I feel like I am dancing towards the finish line, rather than running scared!

It can be exhausting changing your life for the better. So much energy is consumed at the start and it feels like nothing much is happening. It’s usually when you feel like giving up that a little glimmer of hope begins to sparkle from the distance.

Please don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a blast, living most of my ordinary life and it can feel quite perfect at certain times. We all have different definitions of ordinary – it’s really just down to personal preference and can be simple or somewhat complex.

Ultimately, if you’re happy, well in my eyes, you’ve already hit the jackpot and I genuinely salute you.

Does that then mean I’m not happy, chasing the extraordinary? For me, I am happy and I am MOST HAPPIEST pursuing my aspirational future whilst helping others along the way.

I guess, we’re all in this together, so let’s enjoy the process and give back as much as we can.

Poetry Corner #5

you’re worth the wait

Welcome. Poetry Corner is every Thursday! Enjoy these whispering words.

WHERE FREEDOM WALKS

In troubled times,
forbidden glory,
tells doubtful minds,
the untold story.

A trek to find,
that special place,
where freedom walks,
and enters space.

A lonely haven,
or paradise
a risk, a battle,
roll of the dice.

Time is gold,
a rich man said,
you're worth the wait,
a coin for bread.

Silence whispers,
engaging thought,
questions answered,
of how and what?

Think it matters?
Know who cares?
A different you,
the one who dares.

I’m Not Scared

run wild, free and happy

When you become free from the limited minds of others, then you will have the ability to face most fears – if not all!

Self-conscious thinking is never going to get you anywhere but stuck and believe me, ‘stuck in the mud”, is not a good look at all.

When you’re thinking and doing becomes boundless, you achieve more and more each and everyday.

When you go from being fearful to saying, “I’m not scared”, you open a whole new world for yourself.

Don’t be a prisoner to your thinking, because none of it is real anyway.

Shift your cellblock mindset to beautiful thoughts of open landscapes, where you run wild, free and happy.

I know where my thoughts would rather be!

Think about your thinking – is it serving you well right now?

Anyone for Pizza?

Good Morning wonderful you!

Give yourself a slice of happiness for breakfast and sorry, I don’t really mean pizza!

Think happy thoughts to awaken your mind. Use your creative imagination to stir up an aspirational vision for the future.

Be grateful for the goodness in your life today and never forget how special you are.

There is true wisdom living inside of you, so let it confidently breathe in, the intiation of amazing things to come.

Why not cut your big whole pizza into pieces of eight and let each slice represent a positive attribute.

My pizza today, is therefore made up of the following slices:

Happiness

Gratitude

Kindness

Confidence

Achievement

Success

Courage

Strength

What is your yummy pizza made up of today?

Get rid of the negativity in your life, you just don’t need that rubbish around you.

Enjoy your delicious pizza!

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!

I See You

so strong and brave

I recognize your being,
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.

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.”
