You are the builder of your life!

 

Messy dog

“I made this mess now I have to sleep in it” How can that be fair?

It is not often that I use other’s words on “happy as a pig in mud” but I read this fable last night and knew straight away that I had to put it on my blog: Continue reading

Do you ask for what you want?

Please can I have some milk?

Please can I have some milk?


Do you ask for what you want? When I talk about this I am being 100% literal.
You have no doubt heard of the law of attraction…where you ask the universe for something, you feel it, you believe it and if you really, truly want it, it will happen. Well this post is not about that. This post is about literally asking for what you want. Sometimes this is easy….go to a shop ask for a product, the shopkeeper gets it for you and you buy it. You go home as happy as a pig in mud, it is that easy. But sadly, sometimes asking for what we want seems like the most difficult thing we can do. How are you at asking for what you want?

Is the grass greener over there??

The grass right here is just perfect!

The grass right here is just perfect!


Are you a grass is always greener thinker?
Do you or others you know often think that when ‘this’ or ‘that’ changes in your life that, everything will improve and then you will be happy? When you get your new job? When you get your new car? When you move? When you lose weight? When you meet that someone special? When you have more money? And the list goes on. Have you ever been in the situation of reaching the grass on the other side, only to realise that the new happiness is short-lived? That you did move and yes you were happier for a few months and then everything just somehow slips back to normal and you no longer feel that headiness or excitement….the grass was not really greener?

New beginnings…..

I am so grateful to be here! Today is a new beginning.

I am so grateful to be here! Today is a new beginning.

Imagine that you had a second chance at life? Imagine that you truly believed that the world was going to end but then woke up to a new day and realised that your life had just begun? Would you feel/act or think differently? Would you want to grab life by the horns and give it a red hot go? Continue reading

Gratitude….it’s the best attitude…..

We are happy as pigs in mud!!!!

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

Are you socially connected???

I love it when we hang out together.

I love it when we hang out together.

Are you socially connected?  Do you have people who you can just catch up with, have a giggle with, be as happy as a pigs in mud together with or just have a good old chat to?  Continue reading

Do you want to be perfect????

OOPS...I don't think I was supposed to do this???

OOPS...I don't think I was supposed to do this???

Do you believe in the perfect person? Would you want to be perfect? What is perfect?  Do you want to be the person who knows everything, who never makes a mistake, who is able to tell everyone else what they are doing wrong? Continue reading

Would you rather be “right” or happy?

I'm sorry, let's kiss and make up....

I'm sorry, let's kiss and make up....

Would you rather be right or happy as a pig in mud????? Not saying that you must decide between the two, but sometimes when we have the need to be right all of the time we can become very unforgiving, extremely inflexible and quite frankly difficult to get along with. Is it better to bend and flex in the wind and go with the flow, then to be rigid, unmovable and crack in the wind?  Continue reading

Who are you????

I just don't know who I am anymore????

I just don't know who I am anymore????

Have you lost sight of who you are?  Over the years we change to suit others, change to fit into family; school; friendships clicks; work; groups etc. Do you ever feel that you have lost pieces of yourself? Continue reading

Happyasapiginmud……the beginning

Be as happy as a pig in mud

Loving life

Ever heard of that saying Happy as a pig in mud? Isn’t that what we all want….okay so you don’t want to be an actual pig in the mud…..but to be HAPPY?

If I told you that I knew of a magic fairy that would come and grant you 3 wishes….what would they be????
Go on take a minute and really think of what you would wish for, no really do it. Shut your eyes and think of 3 wishes,…it will only take a second. What did you wish for???

I have a sneaky suspicion that 90% of people in the entire world would have somewhere in their list “to be happy”.  I think it is a universal wish/dream and desire.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it???   Amazingly most of us struggle on a daily basis to really be happy.  It is like some mysterious light at the end of the tunnel that we cannot seem to reach or when we do it is short lived. I really believe that we are our own worst enemy when it comes to living happily or for some bizarre reason, deep down we don’t feel that we are worthy of happiness.

Well Guess What?????? We are worth it!  Every single one of us deserves happiness. We can be happy and I hope that this little blog can help us all get to whatever muddy place makes
each of us happy.

Over the years I have read, listened, watched and tried to learn of ways to be happy.  Different ways to tell my over active and
sometimes negative mind that I AM HAPPY! This little blog is my way of sharing what makes me happy; lessons that I have learn’t; lessons that I am trying to learn and whatever else comes to mind…………. This is brought to you with love, simplicity, honesty and hopefully some humour.

Life is too short to be a stick in the mud. How about trying to be a happy little pig in the mud instead????

Thank you for finding these words and best wishes, health and happiness to everyone that stumbles across these pages.

Please join along, make comments and most of all enjoy and be happy together………….
