Be Grateful For What You Have Now

Today, I heard this perceptive and incredibly mature conversation about life and gratitude from two sisters aged thirteen and eleven years old. Two things struck me; firstly, what incredibly wise young people these are. It is often said that wisdom and age are not necessarily synonymous and this is one excellent example of that being true. Secondly, children in general…

Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.” ~ Richard Bach: Jonathan Livingston Seagull Often, it’s so easy to hold ourselves back in life because of all the reasons we see why we ‘shouldn’t’ do something. Our…

Finding Your Way When You’re Lost

“When you lose your way, don’t follow bread crumbs to find your way back. Use the stars to light your way forward.”   This came into my head the other day. And yes, it’s a Hansel and Gretel reference! I’d be interested to meet someone who has never, ever once in their life felt lost. Self doubt or losing a…

The Ultimate Question For A Fulfilling Life

Questions, if used constructively, can be extremely useful in helping us to live life. They can help us to reassess, reevaluate, improve, hone and develop ourselves. And they can guide us towards our life’s true purpose. Whilst thinking about the forthcoming new year and reflecting back upon this one, I started to consider how my priorities have shifted in the…

Inspiring Words For A Winter’s Day

“Just because you can’t see a way out, that doesn’t mean there isn’t one. And finding one—or creating one—starts with believing it’s possible. Muster just a shred of belief. That’s all you need to take, one tiny step, and one tiny step is the beginning of getting unstuck.” I recently read an uplifting and encouraging interview with Tiny Buddha’s Lori…

Getting Your Vision On

After reading my latest copy of the FHT magazine, I’ve been reminded once more of the concept of vision boards. So I’ve decided to (finally!) get around to creating one. Whether you want to instigate change in your life, create some inspiration, motivate yourself to stay on track or firm up ideas about some of your goals, vision boards are…

Gaining Perspective

“Nothing really matters. Love is all we need. Everything I give you all comes back to me.” Yes (if you’re sitting there, vaguely recognising the above) – these are the lyrics from Madonna’s ditty entitled ‘Nothing Really Matters’ from her somewhat spiritual sounding Ray Of Light album. Whether you like or loathe her as an artist, without having recently heard…

Creating Positive Change: Tiny Habits

Wouldn’t it be great if you could do all those things you always mean to do but never quite seem to find the time or motivation to begin? Well, according to Dr BJ Fogg, you can! And it’s really not as hard as you might think. As part of this year’s Mindful in May, Fogg, a world renowned Stanford researcher…

Mindful In May

It’s another year and (nearly) another month of May and I must say, I’m really looking forward to it!  Perhaps it’s because the weather has been beautiful and there’s almost a feeling of summer in the air – lighter nights, warmer days, eating al fresco…  But I’m also really looking forward to my second chance at the Mindful in May…
