Fed up of Pity Parties? Try Self Celebration!

  I am sure you will have had your fair share of ‘Pity Parties‘ throughout your life either your own or those of others and know that they are far, far, from the expectations of a good party.  In fact, they are absolutely crap and boring! Are you fed up of pity parties? For some reason people seem to find it very easy to fall into the pity party mode and mope about and feel sorry for themselves – you

STOP! You’re running yourself into the ground! Do some work on you for a change!

STOP! You’re running yourself into the ground! Do some work on you for a change!

Stop! You’re running yourself into the ground! Many of you will be outward focused (like me!) meaning that you spend a lot of your time and energy looking after, caring for and loving others.  It is a wonderful feeling to be able to give but what happens when your internal supplies start to dwindle and you become tired and suddenly realise that you have let yourself go? This is where you have to step out of life for a moment

Are you being EVERYTHING to EVERYONE?

Are you being EVERYTHING to EVERYONE?

Are you the type of person that wants to be everything to everyone and find that you end up putting yourself on the back burner? Do you want to help everyone to be the best that they can be only to find that you are falling behind? Can guilt get in the way of you doing things for yourself because you have been putting others first for so long? If you have nodded or agreed to any of the above, you are not alone.  There are so many of

Take a Moment to Feel the Appreciation

We all know how life takes over sometimes, we seem to be constantly busy; to-do lists as long as your arm (at work and at home), people to see, things to do, paperwork to complete, emails to read, all that jazz. And when we get through it, do we get a fanfare?  A marching band? Even a high five? Usually not.

Thoughts are like seedlings

Hello dearest friends, I hope you are all well and if you have been getting some sunshine, you have been able to enjoy it!  I am recovering from the sad news that I had and have been occupying myself by filling my mind with beautiful thoughts and taking some time to plant some seeds and do a bit of therapeutic gardening.  I absolutely love gardening, partly because I am an eco bum 😉 and partially because of the freedom it
