We all want the same things really.

Standard

One of the most interesting things I have learnt since being on this journey of natural health, both in becoming more aware of my actions and while working with clients, is that ultimately we are all dealing with similar issues and wanting similar things.

It amazes me how often I hear people feeling the same as I am at the same time.  It never ceases to astound me that others share my fears and I am always left feeling that we are connected so much more than we realise.

Treating others how we want to feel can also benefit us.

I have begun a little challenge for myself and I thought I would share.  I’m trying to view others as if they were wanting the same as me, regardless of how different their actions or words may be, and reacting to them as I would want to be treated. Viewing them as wanting to be loved, wanting to be valued, wanting to be included and wanting to be happy.  Treating them with respect, giving them time and as much patience as I can.

I’m in the early stages of my challenge and it is hard to remember at times, yet when I do view others this way I suddenly feel very different.   It actually adds to my life in a good way rather than detracting from it and leaves me with a positive vibe that then flows into my day, improving it no end.

Hope this finds you happy and healthy

Living one day at a time

Standard

So I had a good lesson last week in living in the present moment and not trying to rush ahead with life – my usual tactic- when my scheduled post only to have it disappear into cyber space. Today I had another reminder on the importance of living one day at a time so here I sit on a Monday night and type so that I know it will actually publish! 🙂

The truth is though that I am bloody impatient in life. There I’ve said it.  I’m the person who is always thinking 3 steps ahead while working on a task. I’m the one who literally can’t sit still because I have so many things that I could be doing.  I’m the one who hates waiting to do or say something which could be happening now.  I’d love to sugar coat my impatience as enthusiasm however it isn’t that sweet.  My impatience often turns to irritation at myself and others which is not the best look for someone advocating health and stress-less days! 🙂

I do however notice that the more I think and talk about stress-less tools, emotional release tools (EFT and Bach Flower Remedies) along with well-being, the more I am aware of my actions and the faster I am able to ‘nip’ my behaviour in the bud.  I bring my focus back to the here and now so that I can make that moment count.  Time is not renewable and actions speak louder than words.  I’m learning. I’m learning minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day to make the most of it all.

As I said today while out I was reminded of all of this as a woman shared her life story with me.  Everything can change in an instant so it is important to make sure I am living the life I want.  I am so fortunate to live the life I do.  I am also so fortunate to have a loving and supportive network around me, of both friends and family, and even though sometimes my hurried arse is too busy to show it I am so, so grateful for all of you and everything you bring to my life.

Sending you all lots of loving thoughts and reminders to make the most of each of your days with the ones you love.
