Unwrap Nature’s Gift

It’s a hectic time of year where we all get wrapped up in the wrong things. We can forget to leave space for the magic.

Watching this video may help put things in perspective.

Rest and Digest

Rest – stop working in order to recover strength, also place for support

Digest – absorb into the mind

We tend to face challenges in our life by pushing and bulldozing, but some times the best solution is to sit down, rest and digest.

We have become accustomed to instant everything, from soup to success.  If we don’t see results instantly we feel  a failure. You don’t plant flower seeds on Tuesday and expect flowers on Wednesday.  A bad haircut can seem to last forever, but without noticing, one day its grown out.

When exhausted from all the pushing and getting nowhere, sometimes we need to stop, breathe, and do a little dance.

Trust

Life is working in your favour.

“Our heads are round so our thoughts can change direction”
Francis Picabia 

 

As my favourite person Sark says “Restore and explore,fill yourself with laughter,take a different route. Re- energize yourself, Recover and discover.

Here’s a fun video to help re-energize yourself and fly around the room with.

Stop and Smile

Sometimes we just need to stop, and smile.
It can make all the difference
Here’s a couple of videos that might help.

Look on the Bright Side

Sometimes when I’m not seeing anything good I recall my favourite story

Once there were five-year-old twin boys,
one a pessimist and the other an optimist.
Wondering how two boys who seemed so alike could
be so different, their parents took them to a psychiatrist.

The psychiatrist took the pessimist to a room piled high
with new toys, expecting the boy to be thrilled. But instead
he burst into tears. Puzzled, the psychiatrist asked,
“don’t you want to play with these toys?”
“Yes,” the little boy bawled,
“but if I did I’d only break them.”

Next the psychiatrist took the optimist to a room piled high
with horse manure. The boy yelped with delight, clambered
to the top of the pile, and joyfully dug out scoop after scoop,
tossing the manure into the air with glee.
“What on earth are you doing?” the psychiatrist asked.
“Well,” said the boy, beaming

“There’s got to be a pony in here somewhere!”

Even when life hands us manure, sometimes if we look hard enough there’s a pony.

Getting Out There

When you say I’m nowhere, let in some space and
you are suddenly now here.

When you step away and give yourself some air, you shift a bit
And that’s what makes the difference.

Jumpstart Yourself

This is The Year of the Yang Wood Horse, which means we should all be galloping along, so don’t keep your self in the stable.

When stuck or lethargic about a project or a life situation
Ask these questions

If I don’t do this – What will happen?
if I can’t do this – Why?
if I mustn’t do this – Why?
if I won’t do this – Why?

Write the answers down, see them on paper, keep asking until you see the real reasons.
It may surprize you as to what’s holding you back.

Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life
situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff.
Your life is real.’
Eckhart Tolle

Getting Rid of Unhappiness

“Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.”

 – Tina Turner

New Year is a good time to really follow this advice.

Here’s a get up and shake off unhappiness video.  This is Tina at 69 years young. Awesome and inspiring.  The words of the song can also apply to oneself  be good to yourself and stop lying to yourself.
