In my morning yoga class – where I find my creative inspiration – the teacher ended the class with some inspiring words that really resonated with me and I’m already implementing his strategy. S.T.O.P.
Well who doesn’t? If you say no, I don’t believe you.
I have a healthy relationship with money in that I like it and know what good it can do for me and my world and I’ve never been shy to say so.
I can feel an amazing movement in the energy all around me. This feeling of hope and something bigger as we come together in a common ground of connection. This change in both women and men enables me to literally feel the groundswell of humans coming together and wiping the slate clean to start over.
As my children get older I am more aware of building memories. I see them pulling away and wanting to spend more time with their friends in their own endeavors which is natural and normal. But it makes me aware of how precious time is and making the most of each and every day.
I find the topic of unhealthy obsessions with food difficult to swallow (literally) and with all the media showing this even more, food is everywhere.
I love food.
I keep having conversations with friends, family and even acquaintances and there is a common thread – everyone is feeling overwhelmed. This is an epidemic! How can we help this anxiety and worry and stop the self-talk in our heads from making things so much worse than they are? Or even if they are really bad – and we all come face to face with unfathomable challenges – how do we get through the day and feel like we have an element of control back in our life?
I love a good list of rules and there is always something else to learn! Who doesn’t want to be a better person? Or be liked just a little bit more by others?
C’mon, we all do! I heard these rules on a podcast the other day and I just had to share them.
I had a friend recently confide in me that he was struggling quite a bit with overwhelm. He had a second health scare and asked me what more it would take before he would actually see the obvious signs and make a change to his life.
This is where I stepped in and gave him some suggestions that I’ve been using in my life to make improvements because I’ve been thinking about the same things.
I think most kids have a great knack for retaining information, even useless information, at a rapid rate. I was certainly the Memory Game champion of my family and still love to play. As I’ve gotten older I’ve accepted that my memory isn’t what it used to be and I depend on my 10 year old who has become my memory. Now I’m learning that this can change and we can get our memory back.
And it will.
Haven’t you heard that? Everything happens how it should and when it should?
I’m a mum. I know how easy it is to look after everyone else in your family and just keep going. One foot in front of the other and whoosh, the day is over. You collapse into bed and are fast asleep in seconds. You don’t know why you’re so tired and have no energy. You get overwhelmed so easily and find simple things so difficult. I always thought tomorrow I’ll start looking after myself, I can handle this. Then the wheels start to fall off.
Have you heard that before? What’s your WHY? Why do you feel like doing some things and dread doing others? My young son helped give me some clarity in the most unlikely way!
