I am a big fan of thinking outside the box. One of my biggest drives for writing is the need to help people understand that things aren’t always what they seem. I want people to take a look at the world around them and question what they see, because I remember so well my own ‘Aha!’ moment, when I stopped just assuming things had to be a certain way and started asking:
“What if things could be EXACTLY as I wish they could be?”
Do you want to bring more authenticity and purpose into your existence? Want to live your life with intention and make the most of every minute? Sure you do! But the thing is, sometimes one of the hardest things about attempting to live a life that is true to you is fitting it in around the life you currently have.
The decision to live a life of intention, to make the most out of life, to be more you, usually requires some kind of change. More often than not it comes about as a result of feeling like we’re stuck in a rut, living a life which is less than inspiring. We go through the motions: work, eat, sleep, repeat…
Money mindset is such an important issue. I used to be pretty anti-money. You know, the root of all evil, causes more harm than good, if there was no money there would be no war, no famine, no greed…
Thing is, I’ve come to realise that none of these things are actually true:
Money is a tool, a symbol. It’s entirely neutral.
It’s almost the new year! Hear me out – I know, I know, it’s MONTHS away yet…I swear the summer warmth is still clinging to my skin and I’ve barely adjusted to wearing trousers again after the shorts I’ve been living in the past few months, but there is an undeniable feeling of change in the air, and already there are Christmas biscuits lining the aisles of the supermarkets…
You just know this last chunk of the year is going to go by in the blink of an eye. In the run-up to the year’s end, when everything starts to get a little frantic, we often find ourselves putting off the things that matter, safe in the knowledge that before we know it, it’ll be a new year, and we can start afresh with our plans then.
Mindset is so important if you’re trying to create changes in your life. It cannot be stated enough!
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
You have to do something different if you want it to be different – you can be inspired by what is happening around you, but you have to make the change yourself, and one thing is for sure that won’t happen unless you believe it is possible. Change your mindset – change your life!
Want to live your best life? How we see ourselves plays a huge role in how our lives pan out. Our perceived characteristics and personalities are a huge player in our own destinies. It’s all a case of mindset – is yours fixed or growth?
I am loving me some recklessness right now! I feel so full of the giddy joys of summer that I had to write this down, lest the feeling starts to fade as the days draw in…
Do you want change but struggle to balance accepting yourself just as you are with wanting more? Maybe you even feel that admitting life isn’t good enough is like admitting you are not good enough? This article looks at why it’s OK to want change, and how it only enhances your true self, not masks it.
Hey you! Yeah, you over there… with the faraway look in your eyes and the dissatisfied smile… You, dreaming of something better. A life less ordinary…
Let me paint you a picture:
So are you ready to Slow down?
I thought it might be helpful to briefly explore some Slow Living tips for the most common ‘everyday’ areas and how you can integrate a Slow philosophy in your day to day life. There are so many aspects to Slow Living, part of its beauty for me it’s how personal it is! You can pretty much apply Slow Living principles to any aspect of life you choose, but let’s take a look at a few key areas:
