Penny for your thoughts?

I feel like dancing!

Music makes me happy. I listen to it while I’m driving, cleaning and any other chance I get. The louder the better. I have my Spotify playlists of all my favourite tunes that get played on repeat. Out of the blue popped up my 2021 “what you’ve listed to list” which gave me a smile and a little mash up of all my favorites. This got me to thinking – what if my top thoughts of 2021 also showed up on my phone and showed me what I had been thinking and ruminating about for the past year??

We just love our yoga!

thinking chimp Penny 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?

Happiness is like a jigsaw puzzle…..

Im a work in progress….

The road to happiness is not a one size fits all, do one magical thing and you get to live happily ever after.  I like to think of it like a jigsaw puzzle with many pieces required to make your happy picture make sense. Like jigsaw puzzles it will take time, effort and commitment to make it all come together. So where do we start?
