You are what you eat!

‘We are what we eat.’ Whatever we ingest and digest becomes a part of us. This isn’t just true of physical food, though. It includes the things we watch, listen to and think about and so inwardly digest this way. It’s important to be informed about the situation around us and to adhere to the …

A new path

Following on from my previous post (‘Happiness’), some ways of thinking have been ingrained in us since childhood and will be related to events or things we have believed since then. This sort of thinking can be difficult to shift, especially if it has affected us at an emotional, heart level. This is why I …

Happiness

I came across the following quote recently and loved it: “Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” Denis Waitley One of the greatest gifts we have been given is free will -the power to choose. We can not …

Thank you!

There have been many studies that have proven that gratitude makes us happier and healthier (It even changes the cells and connections in our brain.)

Whatever we focus on we empower. The way we think and speak about ourselves determines who we become. If you repeatedly remind yourself of your mistakes and failures you will begin to see yourself as a failure and start to live and act accordingly. If, instead, you choose to recognise and be thankful for all …

Wrong car!

Let me own up to this morning’s amusing incident. Early this morning my husband started to de-ice the car ready to leave. My daughter and I joined him scraping off ice and then trying to warm the lock because the key wouldn’t work and we thought the lock must be frozen. It was only when …

Looking back or moving on?
