A new beginning

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

 

It has been a whirlwind of a month and as we reach the end I am leaving behind what has been perhaps the most consistent part of my life for the last 7 years, my job.

Capture

I recently accepted redundancy which triggered a roller coaster of emotions that inevitably left me feeling mentally exhausted.

So why am I writing this post? Well this news has been a reminder to me that change is inevitable and we have to be open to it. Our thoughts are the key to how we view different situations and are ultimately what set us free.

So while I have felt uncertainty in this change I’m ready for whatever it brings. One thing I can be sure of is my passion for writing and becoming a life coach has been reignited and most importantly I cant wait to be a happier, more present mum and wife to my little family.

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 ☮

 

 

Weekend Wisdom – Fresh Start

“Life always offers you a second chance.  It’s called tomorrow.”

I love reading some wise words on a Sunday to start my week with a positive perspective on life and today has been no different. I saw a question pop up in an article I was reading and it instantly grabbed my attention, the question was, “Am I better today than I was yesterday?”

I truly believe that the universe wanted me to see that question today to remind me that every day is a result of past decisions made up until exactly this point. Tomorrow we are going to be the result of the decisions we make today which we have total control over. There is no point in dwelling in past decisions as we cannot rewind life and do it all over again so instead we need to grow from our challenges and move forward with every choice we make today.

Before you go to bed tonight reflect on on your day and ask yourself “Am I better today than I was yesterday?” What habits do you want to continue or what would you like to change? Review your goals to help you focus on improving tomorrow or if you don’t have goals, make some (here are my tips) to give you the motivation and drive to make the most of a new day.

If we are doing things today that will make us better tomorrow and we continue that habit day after day, we are always going to be in the process of becoming our best self.
