How lucky am I? A lucky lady bug on a happy four leaf clover.
Some people believe that happiness occurs more by luck or chance rather than by choice or intention.
I am happy because I am lucky that I have a job I love, that I am happy because I am lucky to live in a place that I love and I am happy because I am lucky that my family life is content. So does that mean that I believe that luck does play a part in happiness? Continue reading
I am grateful for every moment with my family!
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
Follow my lead family. I will guide you on the right path.
This question is not only for leaders; this question is for every single one of us. Are you a colleague, friend, parent, part of a family or a group member, in a nutshell are you a human being? Do you expect those around you to: act in a certain way; have particular morals or follow certain rules? Are you ever guilty of being the pot calling the kettle black? Continue reading
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 know for myself I have a couple of key coping mechanisms that always help. One is to talk; sharing the load to a trusted friend, partner or family member always helps. Another is to be grateful. Studies have shown that those people in this crazy world who are the happiest are those who are the most grateful. Why is this so?
These are my favourite moments
Well the start of a new month and time for us to have our first of the month reality check. This month, being December and the beginning of the festive season, I thought we could all reflect on one of the most important areas in our life, but an area often neglected. One that we may take for granted and one that deserves much love, nurturing and attention….FAMILY! Continue reading
We are happy as pigs in mud!!!!
Now I try to be happy as often as possible, but as we know, real life happens and our happiness stores can literally get drained. The other day, I was having a particularly, great day, I was as happy as a pig in mud…… Everything just felt good. I thought to myself “why do I feel so good???” Had I found a new wonder drug??? Had I received a raise at work?? Had our teenagers cleaned the house?????? NO, none of the above……But I did find my answer…I was having “Grateful day”: It made me realize how feeling grateful literally boosted my mood. It was as if taking stock and taking a moment to smell the roses had slapped me in the face and said “You are one lucky lady.”
“Why are you so grateful?” I hear you ask me. Continue reading
