“You create your thoughts, your thoughts create your intentions and your intentions create your reality.” – Wayne Dyer
Did you eye roll when you saw the title of this post? You might consider affirmations to be unrealistic “wishful thinking” and that’s okay because I used to think the same too! Well I did A LOT of research and now that I understand how our brain works, I have a lot more faith that positive affirmations do work. Before you disregard the power of positive affirmations it’s important to know that an affirmation is really anything you say or think so chances are, you’re already using affirmations whether you know it or not.
“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”
~ Walt Whitman
I stumbled across this amazing quote and incredible picture while browsing the web recently and it took my breath away. I find myself getting trapped in the comfort of old habits or stuck dwelling in the shadows of the past. I feel unhappy in the direction i’m looking yet forget that I can simply turn around. You would think that by now I would have learnt that only I have control to make these changes but I guess that’s the beauty of personal growth and I definitely still have a long way to go.

I had a moment of inspiration when I put together this sneaky little logo of mine. I am aware that its not perfect and I’m totally cool with that because imperfect is perfect to me. So, I’m sure a lot of people would be wondering what this means and to be totally honest this was not planned at all, it wasn’t until I finished it that I had a moment of realisation that I had subconsciously put together an accurate representation of my life! While on my journey of trying to become my best self I have come across so many different religions, beliefs, philosophies and practices that I find myself caught in a juggling act. Now maybe incorporating a bit of everything into my daily life is just what I need but before I can do that I really want to understand and practice each option individually so I can give the time and attention to the things that work for me.
It can be a challenge to find a balance in life without adding these extra things into the mix but I truly believe that each of the above symbols represent a more positive quality of life not only for myself but to the people who surround me.
Welcome to my new look blog and I look forward to continuing to share my thoughts and experiences with you as I continue to search for my inner zen.
Thanks for reading and make sure you share your smile with the world today ☮
