No Coffee, No Inspiration

Yesterday there was no electricity, no coffee and at the same time no inspiration with a bit of irritability thrown in for good measure.

After a couple of failed attempts at writing my blog I had two choices, either I could be irritable or I could make the most of this time by using it to relax.

I decided to take a break, sit on my bed with a few blocks of chocolate, a snuggly blanket and an enjoyable book.

Weirdly enough as soon as I started to relax I had a title for my blog and was then able to start writing (good old pen and paper).

Sometimes all we need is a change of scenery, a few deep breaths and some self love to get the creative juices flowing again.

After writing and sitting quietly in a comfy place (besides my neighbour’s generator which sounds like a truck), with my pets lying near me and my fluffy blanket around my feet I felt at peace and happier.

Look after yourself, you deserve a break.

With love

Building yourself Up

Gallery

self esteem - gold stuffWithout realizing it people often buy things to boost their self esteem.  A new outfit, a new car, a bigger home….

They may feel better about themselves for a short period of time but the feeling goes away and all they are left with is an expensive debt.

When people need an external item to build themselves up then it’s time to ask why they need it in the first place.  Here are two questions they could ask:

  • Why do I need this?
  • What does it say about me if I have this?

The answers to the second question can be eye opening and can often come down to core beliefs we hold about ourselves.  Often we let these core beliefs hold us back in life, if we are embarrassed about our furniture or our home we may resist inviting people over.

An example using the above questions would be:  You feel embarrassed about your lounge suite as it is old and grubby and discoloured.  So you avoid people coming to the lounge if you can.  Ask yourself why you feel embarrassed.  Then ask yourself what feeling embarrassed about your lounge says about you.   Some answers could be: If my lounge suite looks like this, people will think badly of me, people will think I don’t take care of my things, people will think I don’t have money, people will look down on me.  If people think these things about me then I am a failure, I don’t deserve to have visitors over, I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy.

This above scenario might sound extreme but when a person has feelings of inferiority around their stuff, its usually based on these self doubting thoughts they are having.  If you have never done this type of work before you would be surprised about what your thoughts are.

Do you recognize any of those statements when it comes to your inner dialogue?  Are any of those thoughts actually true?  Do people really think those things?  Well you don’t know unless you ask them because you can’t read someone else’s mind.  Even if people did think those thoughts about you…. does it really matter?  So what if they do.  It doesn’t make you any less of a person.

Once you are aware of your why’s, you may relook at things and work on feeling good from the inside.

I can help you work with that.

The Minimalist Birthday

Gallery

birthday giftsHi there and welcome to 2018.

Today is my birthday which is pretty cool because it’s the 18th of the 1st 2018.  Being the month after the festive season or should I call it the spending spree, finding money for a birthday present in January can be a stretch.  Not to mention it was my hubby’s birthday two days ago!

So this year we made vouchers for each other and I can’t express enough how wonderful it was.  Everyone gave something of themselves.  Whatever it was they knew the person would want, they gave.

Some examples (from the kids as well) were:  shoulder massages, spending more time together, glasses of water when thirsty, hot chocolate and cookies in bed, 10 cups of homemade tea/coffee (to be used one at a time of course), etc.   Also everyone went to the effort of making meaningful and heartfelt cards.  There were also a few chocolates and treats included and cards from the pets too.  I have to admit my hubby’s vouchers spoilt me a lot more but I’ll use them next month or the month after maybe.

I felt moved and I think that this is not a bad precedent to set for the future.

When you give of yourself you are really thinking about what the other person would like and it touches them.

Wishing you a wonderful 2018 and may this year be a year of manifesting abundance, self-growth, excellent health and deep connections.
