How balanced are you?

Yahoo look how balanced I am???chimpanzee-tight-rope-walking

I truly believe that one of the key lessons in life is balance. Having balance in our life improves our happiness.

Think about those times when you are stressed or feeling down and I bet that you’re juggling too many things. You know that feeling of being overwhelmed, can’t keep up, over stretched and simply not coping with all that life is asking of you. Continue reading

You are what you think………..

thinking chimpPenny for your thoughts…….

We all know the saying “you are what you eat”… (Not that most of us actually live by it) but we have all heard it. Well, there is a saying that I think we should probably pay even more attention to…”You are what you think”.

Our thoughts are constant; our inner voice is like a playlist on repeat. It is the voice that we will hear more than any other throughout our entire lives. Let me ask you this….would you want to spend time with someone that puts you down, or someone that second guesses your every move and doubts your every decision? Continue reading

Well where have the past 6 months gone? I have no idea…..but I am back……….

Isn’t the remote control an amazing invention?? There is nothing better than switching channels when shows are boring or changing from a drama to a comedy when you need a lift. We can even rewind or fast forward a movie……..this got me to thinking how great it would be to have a “life” remote control. When life is getting tough we could switch to happier times or when we muck up we could rewind to fix our faux pas………..Well guess what in a way we can! Continue reading

Change is not a dirty word…..

I see myself as a duck but my friends say that I act like a goose

I want to be bigger and stronger

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? If you did, I am gathering that all of them would be leading you in the same direction or toward the same goal……to be happier in some way? If you didn’t, I am guessing it is not because you think that your life is perfect? In the search for contentment we normally focus on what makes us happy because as we all know what we focus on grows, so it makes perfect sense to focus on the positive in our lives.  Today I have a little challenge for you and it will be to look at your life a little differently……………….
