Values – are you living by your values?

Meerkat family

We value family and being together makes us happy little meerkats!

 

What do you value? Your values are the foundations of who you are. The more aware you are of your personal values, the easier it is to make a happy and fulfilling life. I see each value as a jigsaw puzzle piece and putting them all together makes the perfect picture of you. Do your values align with the way you are living? Continue reading

Rules or roadblocks?

Happy chameleon

I have no rules, I change to what ever I like whenever I like. I am happy as a pig in mud (or a chameleon in the garden).

Do you have rules for yourself or for others that dont do you or them any justice? Do these rules sometimes give you grief and make you judgmental,critical and down right hard to please? Continue reading

What is truly meaningful to you?

My loved ones mean everything to me

My loved ones mean everything to me.

Well many of you may not realise but this little piggy blog comes to you from Australia. Today, a place that has been all over the world news and sadly for all of the wrong reasons. A chilling siege that ended with the heartbreaking news of the death of two innocent hostages. Tragedies such as these make you really think about what actually brings meaning to your life.

Are you living your life to the fullest?

I am grateful for every moment with my family!

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

Whose life would you want?

I like being a dog....I don't want their life!

Every now and then you hear a quote that really makes you think. Continue reading

What means most to you?????

My family..........

My family..........

What, in life, is most important to you??
Make a list…it only needs to be short.  Make this list in order of priority e.g.  Family; Health; Friends and Work???
Of course each of us has a different list. Do you live life as though these actually
were the most significant things in your life?  You may have said family is first……do you really put quality time into your family or are you too  busy doing other stuff? You may have said Health but in fact spend little time really looking after yourself?  What changes can you make to focus on what is really important?
Are you wasting time on unnecessary things? Are you focusing on things that are not even on your list?  Do you say yes to things that you have no time for? What does your list look like??? Are you living a life that matches your list or could your life do with some changes? I know times are busy and we can easily lose sight of what is important, but surely our lives are happiest and the most fulfilling when we live life being true to ourselves and knowing what is the most meaningful to us.

Life’s lessons…..

Sometimes all you can do is hang in there....

Imagine trying to learn how to tie your shoe laces up when you are only one..not going to happen. Somehow there comes an age where things just become possible, where the penny drops. Magically something that seemed totally beyond you  just clicks.  It doesn’t even matter if someone is giving you wonderful advice if your not ready to get it…..Have you ever said “Why didn’t I listen”  Ouch ……. I know I have.
I think life lessons are the same……..something that makes no sense at 20 makes perfect sense at 40…..is this what they call wisdom?  I suppose it’s like going to school…you can’t learn 12 years of school in 1 year, even though most teeenagers would have you believe they know it all, already. I love that as I have aged things have started to make sense…………some things still make no sense at all to me: how does wireless internet work????? why fruit and vegies are still 1.99 per kilo or 2.99 per kilo when we have not had 1c pieces forever???? and why in the heck does chocolate taste so damn good if it is bad for us?????  I figure it is ok not to get stuff and that when the time is right and when we are ready to learn we
will. I think we all need to be open to lessons and not to beat ourselves up for those lessons that are hard to get………….we all have so much to learn and a life time to learn it in.

I look forward to all the stuff I have to learn and the different stages to go through to get there.

What are some of your favourite life’s lessons?????
