Where to start when you have no idea where to start

That thing that over the years keeps popping up as a reminder that you still want it, your mind may have pushed it to the back of your priorities but your soul is quietly nudging you saying ‘I haven’t forgotten & I’m not going to let you forget either’. You know that thing, you’ve decided to go for it, the next obstacle, where do you start?

What does the word happiness even mean?

What does the word happiness even mean?

 

Well it seems the goal posts have moved and this often confusing journey of looking for happiness is proving to have been a misguided message all along. We were first led to believe that happiness is a place, that we when achieve success (society’s version that is) we will be happy, we will be living the dream. We are now living in enormous amounts of debt from our shiny new cars, oversized houses, full of material possessions we bought on credit that we don’t actually need or have time to enjoy because we are working overtime in our full time jobs (that don’t make us happy and certainly aren’t our passion) just to make ends meet. Rant over, you get the point, society’s way isn’t going to make us happy and I am excited to say the world is waking up to these marketing tricks.

Feeling stuck? Clear space for new opportunities

Feeling stuck? Clear space for new opportunities

 

As I sit down to write this piece on feeling stuck and how to clear space for new opportunities, I have to admit I too am feeling stuck and slightly panicky. Feeling panic is such a normal result of feeling stuck, so don’t panic your not the only one (see what I did there!).

Positive Psychology- A positive past, present & future

Did you know your positive thoughts are 10,000 times more powerful then your negative thoughts? Life isn’t always easy, to be truthful, sometimes it sucks. However we have the option to stare down the black hole of negativity (sadness, jealousy, frustration, anger, doubt, guilt, fear, shame, you get the point) or look on the brighter, more positive side of life and recognise what is working well, how we can use our strengths, strategies and skills to navigate through the challenges to live a happier more enjoyable life.

What happens if it doesn’t work? You set yourself up with big audacious goals, they scare you but your excited for everything you are going to achieve. You visualise changing your whole entire life in six mere months. Six months passes and you haven’t achieved what you thought you would, what you dreamed is still a dream that feels so out of reach.

Possibility Mindset: You can have both

Everything you can imagine, dream, wish you can make happen it’s that simple. I don’t really need to go on but we all need a pump me up from time to time. So often we imagine something, we dream of something we want to occur and at the same time our negative self talk pipes up and tells us we can’t do, have or be that because of some ridiculous idea that our minds tell us to stop us from growing and expanding. We couldn’t have everything we want, could we?
