Music makes me happy. I listen to it while I’m driving, cleaning and any other chance I get. The louder the better. I have my Spotify playlists of all my favourite tunes that get played on repeat. Out of the blue popped up my 2021 “what you’ve listed to list” which gave me a smile and a little mash up of all my favorites. This got me to thinking – what if my top thoughts of 2021 also showed up on my phone and showed me what I had been thinking and ruminating about for the past year??
Let’s face it – 2020- 21 has not been easy. In such difficult and everchanging times it can be hard to stay positive and even harder to feel happy. All studies show the more resilient you can be the more likely you are to adapt and be able to cope with day-to-day challenges.
I always think like a king, after all I am the king of the jungle! I am one happy lion!

We all know the saying “you are what you eat”… (Not that most of us actually live by it) but we have all heard it. Well, there is a saying that I think we should probably pay even more attention to…”You are what you think”.
Our thoughts are constant; our inner voice is like a playlist on repeat. It is the voice that we will hear more than any other throughout our entire lives. Let me ask you this….would you want to spend time with someone that puts you down, or someone that second guesses your every move and doubts your every decision? Continue reading →
I choose to think positive, I choose to think positive…Ummmm
When you have a problem what is your greatest asset? Could it be a loved one, a friend, your faith or maybe even in a book? Just lately it has become very apparent to me that our greatest asset is very close to each and every one of us, we all have this help within our reach and we can reach it 24/7.

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 continual, low level stress. Are you, too, a little guilty of letting your thoughts take over???
I have made a conscious decision to STOP….(OK..let’s be honest, work on)…this. There is enough stress in the world without me creating my own. As I have discussed before,, stress is not good for our health or our emotional well-being, so why not try to reduce our stress levels where ever possible?
From now on when “The worry chatter station” comes on in my head…. I have come up with a plan of attack: Continue reading →
Wow! An entire month has passed between posts. I have been so busy and had not even realised…….Well it is 1st of the month reality check time again! This month I would like to remind us all of how powerful our mind and our thoughts can be. The thoughts we have can be like a supportive friend or an unhelpful foe. Our thoughts can keep us strong, get us through or keep us down and allow negativity to seep in. What sort of state is your mind in at the moment?? Continue reading →
