Who is your best friend????

happyasapiginmud

They do say that I AM man's best friend...can I be your best friend??

Who is your best friend?  Who can you confide in 24/7?  Who is always there for you?  Who can you always count on, guaranteed, from today until the day you die? Who REALLY knows what you think…even your inner most private thoughts?  Who will be there for you in good/bad…in sickness and in health?  Who will still be your friend even if you have done things you are not proud of?  Who you ask???  Is a name coming to mind? Guess what? I know who can tick all of those boxes for you?……………………………………………..

Don’t poop in your own nest

Was just about to reblog this one from 2012, when I noticed Tony had just made comment……Guess it is meant to be. Enjoy!

Hey be nice....we all have to live in here together! Hey be nice….we all have to live in here together!

Have you ever heard of that saying “Don’t sh%t (poop) in your own nest”? To me it means that we should try not to ” do the dirty/betray/be negative” to those around us. We need to mindful of our relationships, in particular our actions and reactions to situations and try to maintain a respectful approach. Remember “treat others as you want to be treated”. Now I am far from perfect and have teenagers, so believe me I know that being calm and nice is not always possible but for the sake of this post I am actually thinking about work relationships……..

Do you let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy????

I heard the Eagles song today, “Take it easy” and it reminded me that it had prompted me to write a post several years ago….It is still a issue that I am constantly working on. Thought I would share it with you.

I am always worrying about things...it make my head ache! I am always worrying about things…it make my head ache!

When you are going about your normal day, what is your mind doing? Is it with you or is it against you? I don’t know about you but my mind is constantly chatting. The only time it is not is when: I am asleep; I am really focused on a task or when I am listening to others. The rest of the time my mind is tuned into “my own internal chatter station”. I tell you it is one busy station. My issue is, that I have come to realize that a large portion of “my chatter station time” is spent worrying/concerned and just plain overthinking. I can go for hours worrying about a friend’s problem, a family member’s situation, how to fit too much in to my day/week, work issues etc…….I have realized that I am creating my own…

Values – are you living by your values?

Meerkat family

We value family and being together makes us happy little meerkats!

 

What do you value? Your values are the foundations of who you are. The more aware you are of your personal values, the easier it is to make a happy and fulfilling life. I see each value as a jigsaw puzzle piece and putting them all together makes the perfect picture of you. Do your values align with the way you are living? Continue reading

Bring back normality…..please???

Kangaroo thinking

Now let me think…what do I want my new normal to be like?

Remember the good old days??? Life rolled on and was what we fondly called normal.  2020 has thrown normality on it’s head and  tossed us around like waves on jaggered rocks.   In the rush to get back to normal we have an amazing opportunity to use this transition time to consider how we actually want our future normal to look.

Could be good……could be bad????

So how could this be good???

So how could this be good???

This old post is very true in these times when there is so much uncertainty…some things we see as bad but also many things that we can see coming out of this strange year as good…………

Life can be great and quite frankly at times it  can really suck! They say that we are never given more than we can’t handle but I know at times, we feel like we are being tested to the nth degree and have no idea how we might get through.

Now a little faith….. in love , in life, in humanity is what gets me through. But I am also a firm believer that we are put on this planet to learn and just like at school, some lessons are interesting and fun and some lessons we would much rather skip altogether. So next time you are struggling, stressed out, going through a bad patch read this story and I hope it gives you a little hope…… Continue reading
