“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.
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 ☮
“Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” – Dennis Prager
Integrity is a very personal term and is defined as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.” It is something that holds deep meaning and importance in both my husband and I’s life and something I hope to pass on to our children.
Integrity isn’t something we put a lot of thought into until someone questions it and then we find a fire that ignites inside of us that first makes us re-evaluate our principles and reinforce just how valuable they are.
“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.” – Mahatma Gandhi
I recently spent what was the best 10 days of my life in the most beautiful place on earth that I have travelled to so far, Bali. I think what brings me to make this huge statement is the rich culture, the feeling of togetherness in the community and how inspirational it is to watch the Balinese maintain the balance of the spiritual and physical worlds.
Since our visit I have been obsessed with bringing the peaceful, Zen vibe I enjoyed in Bali home with me to Australia and so I thought I would focus this post on the Balinese life concept of ‘Tri Hita Karana’ that has the rough literal translation “three causes of well-being” or “three reasons for prosperity.”
