 “Gratitude turns what we have into enough”. 

Do you realise that when you live each day grateful for what it brings, that you magically lose that sense of lacking? When you are grateful for what you actually have, somehow what you have can be enough. Continue reading

How often are we told how important it is to be grateful, to be happy and to live like there is no tomorrow? How often do we really listen to this sage advice and do we truly live by it? All too often we get sucked up by life, work, chores and the like when really we need to slap ourselves across the face and remember that life can be short. Continue reading

Gratitude…………….. one site fits all!

I am grateful to be alive!

I am grateful to be alive!

Well it has been forever since my last post. Life has been a little busy lately.
Over the years I have come to learn that when life gets hectic that it is really important to have a few key coping mechanisms to help get you through. As we age, most of us get more resilient, we learn better ways to cope, we have learnt what works best for us and more importantly, what to steer clear of.

I am too busy to enjoy anything!

I am too busy to enjoy anything!


Do you live your life as if it were a “to do list”? Do you race through ticking off events/milestones/chores/occasions as if they were jobs completed off your list? Going from one event to the next, ticking it off and moving onto the next without savouring and finding joy along the way? OR Do you take time to stop and smell the roses? Do you enjoy each moment for what it is or are you a little guilty of moving from one event to the next without appreciating the in between times? Why not be grateful for every moment, why not live for the now and enjoy the journey to the destination as well as loving the destination when you get there? Continue reading
