A new way to think about education?

“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” – Sir Ken Robinson

I have watched this TED talk multiple times in my life including before my children were in school and multiple times after. I remember that before my eldest went to school I would watch the video and nod agreeing with the things Ken would say. I now have 2 children in school and when I watch this talk I’m still nodding but I also want to jump through the screen, give Ken a high 5 and share this video with all the people involved in putting together our education system.

Searching for my inner zen

“The greatest discovery in life is self-discovery. Until you find yourself you will always be someone else. Become yourself.” Myles Munroe

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.

Searching For My Inner Zen

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 ☮

 

 

3 Simple Tips To Create Your Own Vision Board

“A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.” Rosabeth Moss Kanter

I have felt an intense need for change over the past few weeks and with the absolutely stunning and history making lunar eclipse that happened on Saturday it was clearly a sign that the time to make those changes is NOW.
As part of this transformation I decided to replace my old vision board with new goals for the rest of the year which will give me the motivation and inspiration to action them. As a child I remember visualising my life as an adult and those visions have become reality so I’m a big believer that its a practice that works.

There are some incredible articles out there about what a vision board is, why it works and how to make it work for you but I wanted to keep this simple so thought I would share my 3 simple yet effective tips on putting together your own vision board.
