We are grateful for our baby!
“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 →
Mmmm..I am trying to think of ways to make my life more enjoyable???
Do you enjoy your life? Yes I am asking you to get a little philosophical today………
For many of us we may need to break this down into the different aspects of our lives: home; work and play. For example, some of us may be very happy at home but miserable at work. So if you break your life into these 3 general categories how does each area rate? Maybe give them a score out of 10? Continue reading →

Im grateful for my buddy!
What is happiness to you? Would you say that you are happy now or are you waiting for “something” to happen to make you happy? Will a new job, a move, a new car, meeting someone special or more money make you happy? Is happiness at the end of the legendary rainbow or is it something that you have within you right now?

I am so grateful for this piece of ice
Happy 2012 and Happy first of the month reality check time…….For my New Years Resolution I have chosen one theme for the year……………..GRATITUDE! I have discovered that I am happiest when I am truly grateful and that I am unhappiest when I lose sight of this. So everyday I shall be grateful; when I am sad, I shall be grateful; when I want more, I shall be grateful and most importantly when any negativity creeps in, I shall be grateful. Being truly grateful, not just saying it…but really feeling it, can lighten any aspect of life.
I love this quote below…..It says it all…… Continue reading →

Do you know how to clear the fog? Do you have days where your feel flat, low and feel down on yourself? Continue reading →
It is very hard to be cranky when you are being grateful.
I know some days looking for things to be grateful about is harder than others but as long as you are alive, there are always many things to be grateful for.
Make a list of everything you are grateful for and I mean everything…..you may not think there is much but once you get in the swing of it you will not be able to stop. It is a great way to shift you from negativity to positivity. If you do it daily it becomes a habit. When you are driving. When you wake up. When you go to sleep….whenever it suits
you. If you are feeling a bit flat or even totally crap this can really change your mood.
Some people like to write things down, some like to think of 10 things at a time……what works for you??????
If you are cranky with a loved one, instead of making the mental list of “Things that you do to annoy me most “….(come on admit it we have all done that list in our head), try changing it to “Okay you can be annoying but I am grateful to you for” ………..and list as many things as you can. I promise it will soothe you and shift your focus.
Why not try every night before falling asleep thinking about 10 things that you were thankful for that day……..try and make them different everynight.
Let me know how you are going?
