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…

How balanced are you?

Yahoo look how balanced I am???

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

Is there a formula to happiness?

How dare you say that I am angry!

Happy?? I’m not happy!

Well happiness is not the same for everyone, because luckily we are all different. The one thing I know is that happiness is not handed to us on a plate. It is something that we must work on from within and on a daily basis to achieve. 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……………….

Stress less…..enjoy more!

A hot bath always relaxes me!

A hot bath always relaxes me!


Stress is sadly a daily occurrence for many of us. Whether we create our own worry or have stress thrust upon us, we all know that it is not healthy or productive. Not only does it impair our immune system, affects our mood, upsets our relationships, bring us down, affects our health and overall well-being but it is proven to reduce our life span. It is ironic that given what we know about stress that we seem to do very little to reduce it. This brings me to this week’s topic…What can you do to reduce stress in your daily life?
We all know that when we are free of or have greatly reduced stress levels that we are happier and healthier. Life seems to bubble along smoothly, we cope well, we are in good health and we are more enjoyable to be around. Continue reading

Are you being your best?????

Okay so I suppose I could behave better?

Okay so I suppose I could behave better?

How funny it is that we can stand on the outside of other people’s lives and it seem so easy for us to see what mistakes they are making or what they do that seems to work so well for them. Yet when it comes to our own lives we can, at times, we can be blindfolded to events, people and negative situations. If some “wise old one” was to stand on the outside of your life looking in, what do you think they would see? Continue reading

Do you let other’s run their own race?

Why don't you listen?  I told you to bark like me...stop that meowing!

Why don’t you listen? I told you to bark like me…stop that meowing!

Following on from my Run your own race  post which talked about doing your own thing, running your own race and  not comparing yourself to others, I thought that we might need to look at  this from another point of view.  Absolutely!…..We  should run our race…….but the flip side of this is letting others  run their own race too.

It’s all about the feeling!

I always feel like I don't fit in....I feel so shy!

I always feel like I don’t fit in….I feel so shy!

Following on from our “Law of Attraction” lessons, I thought that the following scenarios might help us to better understand this theory and it’s complexities.  The law of attraction is not easy to understand and really involves us knowing what we really FEEL!, deep down.  How we feel is so much more important than what we say and even what we do. Our true feelings will alter the course of our lives, what we achieve, our relationships, our highs and our lows………..

Crazy drivers.....am I the only one who can drive around here??

Crazy drivers.....am I the only one who can drive around here??

Do you have a story? Do you tell your story to anyone that will listen…over and over? Could you be slightly annoying to those that come in contact with you? It may be…..My life is full of problems story, things that make me angry story, my annoying family story, I am toooooooo busy story, how annoying everyone else is story, my horrible job story?….you get the drift.  Do you replay the same old problems over and over in your mind or even worse…… to anyone you come across? Are you like a broken record? Telling your story over and over.  Do people see you coming and run the other way? Under their breath are they saying “Here we go again….we have to listen to this AGAIN” Continue reading
