Be the Change

Midweek inspiration

Here’s a little midweek inspiration, enjoy.

Allow Yourself
by Catherine Pulsifer, © 2009

Allow yourself to dream,
And when you do dream big

Allow yourself to learn
And when you do learn all you can

Allow yourself to laugh
And when you do share your laughter

Allow yourself to set goals
And when you do reward yourself as you move forward

Allow yourself to be determined
And when you do you will find you will succeed

Allow yourself to believe in yourself
And when you do you will find self confidence

Allow yourself to lend a helping hand
And when you do a hand will help you.

Allow yourself relaxation
And when you do you will find new ideas.

Allow yourself love
And when you do you will find love in return

Allow yourself to be happy
And when you do you will influence others around you.

Allow yourself to be positive
And when you do life will get easier.

Make it a great week

Now go make your mark!!!

New year update

I hope everyone is well!!

A few months back I wrote that the 3 key areas of my life I wanted to improve were
A: health
B: emotions
C: career

Well here is an update on the health front I have been working out regularly and have lost 14lbs (pretty good eh!!) add that to being able to fit into some clothes that I though were destined to get lost in the back of my wardrobe, never to be seen again.

Secondly whoever said healthy body, healthy mind was spot on. With more energy I’m thinking clearer and I feel I am a lot sharper at picking things up,
a bit more tactful and have in general been happier.

Thirdly, I have been offered a new job role, I start next week. So new positive thinking, more energy and a willingness to move forward and so far 2014 is not too bad.

Well that’s the first quarter of the year over so here’s to the next. I’m gonna have to get working on my strategy.

Let me know how your year is going. We can keep each other on the right path together.

Stay hungry

One of my besties sent me this in an email last night…

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me…

Midweek motivation

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Steve Jobs

Happy wednesday

Thought for the week ahead

Count our blessings

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.

Eric Hoffer

So another week over and how many of us are glad to see the back of it?

A new week that promised so much failed to live up to expectations. We all did the merry dance and just ended up both physically and mentally exhausted.

Lets flip this on its head, have a long hard think about what went well.
1: I have my health
2: I have my family and friends
3: I still have goals that I need to work towards
4: There were incidents that did make me laugh.

So guess what I’m ready to do it all over again tomorrow. Why? Because I love life!!
