The power of our thoughts

I'm a big believer that what we focus on most is what we bring into our lives. I didn't always believe that but then that's part of growing, learning more about myself and my life and realising how we alone can control our lives and guide them in the direction we need to go.

Not happy with the pecking order

I'm in old lady mode tonight, not that there's anything wrong with old ladies of course. It's 5:45 on a Saturday night and I've just planted my bottom on the lounge ready to write the night away.

I've had dinner - an early dinner because youngest son was going to work, so I cooked early and I'm in my pyjamas because they're the most comfy thing to sit and write in. Hence old lady mode.

Finding my path

There comes that time in your life when you finally discover that thing which your really meant to be doing and you know you've discovered it because it sets your heart on fire and makes your blood zing. It's almost an effortless activity which suddenly just feels right to be involved in. 

I've been watching Wayne Dyer's movie 'The Shift' which was free for download this weekend following his death this week and he talks about finding your 'dharma' or in more simple terms finding your life purpose.

You have the power to create your life vision

For the longest time I struggled with knowing what I wanted and how I went about getting it. Was I alone with that thinking, I don't think so judging by the number of people who have asked me how I figured out what I wanted.

Plainly and simply I wrote it down, what I wanted and how I could make it happen. I wrote in my journal every single day based on Julia Cameron's concept of morning pages.

One small step...

For some it would be a small step - for me its a monstrous step. I have just pushed the big go button to publish my new website all aimed at transformation and change. I had a goal of launching for the 1st July, I missed it by 18 days - yet today I published my site and feel an enormous sense of satisfaction.

Go on, you know you want to take a peek

Tomorrow I'll be I'll just be me

Sixty five days since I last wrote words on this page, which is definitely the longest time I've gone without writing words here since 2010 when I started writing this blog.

Did the world stop turning, no, did the sun stop coming up, no. Yes everything basically continued as it normally does.

and yet...everything changed.

Feeling inspired

If someone had told me just over a month ago that I would feel lighter, more in control, more focused and happier from doing this NLP course then I would have laughed and then asked how.

The believer in me would have been hopeful but the disbeliever would have been second guessing and questioning.

Signs from the Universe

I was going to start writing this post with the words 'any of you who know me well' and the irony is that there's a large part of me which stays in my heart and my head and isn't shared with many people. I'm not a girly, girly type who has lots of special girlfriends, I never have been.

Yet there's a special few in my world and some of them are new and have got under my skin and are obviously in my world for a reason. Today on a catch up study group for my NLP course I shared a dream that has been in my heart for maybe 18 months which I've shared with only a very select few. This is me previously fighting those beliefs that I can't make the BIG things happen in my world.

The light at the end of the tunnel...

What a week its been, my brain is absolutely overflowing with so much information, so much so, that tonight I plan to sit and quietly make sense of everything I've learnt this week. That's the party animal in me breaking free on a Saturday night.

Brain overload aside, now I need to work out what my next steps are personally and with my business plans.

Second Chances

Frustrated beyond belief with the low life's who took a hard earned reward and destroyed it just because they could.

My 17 year old sons motorbike was stolen from outside the pub where he works last night, a motorbike that he saved up every hard earned cent to buy all by himself.

Download Junkie

There's a new kind of 21st century addiction taking over normal, intelligent people and I've realised that I suffer from an extreme form of it. It's been sneaking up on me for some time and I guess the best name for it is download addiction.

While I know I need to take responsibility for my addiction its hard to know where to begin, although I'm pretty sure that I was on the right track when I mentioned in a previous post about throwing all of my electronic devices in the bin.

Determination is everything...

How do you know your life is being consumed by electronic products - answer, when you spend a good portion of an unexpected free night trying to sync everything together.

The effort involved in 'simplifying' my life is quite amusing, when really the easy answer would be to throw the whole lot in the bin.

I'm an Aussie...where I'm free to be who I want to be

I fact I read a lot. Books, blogs, articles you name it and I read it, I always have. A former boss who once wrote a recommendation for me says I have 'a thirst for knowledge like no one else he has met.' It's probably one of the nicest things I've ever read about myself.

Putting words on the page

You know those funny moments which happen and make you pause and just wonder at the size and reach of the universe and its serendipitous little happenings.

I started writing the first book in my trilogy in February last year, two chapters in and then I got caught up with MBA study and a whole heap of other things and it went to the bottom of my list of things to do.

Changing my reality...

Happy New Year to all. Today I'm sitting here, the day before I go back to work and I'm considering all of the things I didn't get done over my holiday break. Yes I'm a little remorseful, but I'm also okay with it.

Okay, being okay with what I didn't get done is taking some work, but I'll get there. What I did do is read a lot, sleep a lot, spend time with family and generally relax. So I got a lot done in terms of mind and body rejuvenation and maybe that was more important than building my 'dream' business and restructuring my website.
