Clarity, Love, Butterflies, Freedom and Splashing Colors for 2016

“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

As the year comes to an end and a new year ushers itself on us soon, we will all be thinking about the year ahead. In lieu of what we went through in this year, we think the next year will either be similar. Instantly flashes of what went wrong in this year will leave their residue in the year to come, IF you Let them.

How to Promise Yourself a Truly Positive New Year

How to Promise Yourself a Truly Positive New Year 2016

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice.’ ~ T. S. Eliot

As the year end inches closer and closer, I find myself introspecting a whole lot. I find myself thinking about the year in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes me think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light. I have definitely learnt a whole LOT this past year.

We are all in a state of constant growth, be it physical, mental or spiritual. We don’t necessarily like to believe we are growing constantly, cause that would mean an admittance to NOT knowing EVERYTHING. Funny how we love to show the world we are master champions about everything, but in reality we are just trying SO hard to fit in. Continue reading

“Change is possible and does not have to be difficult.” ~ Jenny Mannion

I’m an advocate for Positive change. Always have been. I know its never easy to change our negative ways, but we can DO it if we are committed to our inner peace and happiness.

But Jenny’s book kicks all those difficult ways to change out the window and gives you simple, clear, wise and doable ways to create positive change within you. Jenny’s journey is inspiring and learning from her life’s work has been a blessing for me.

Listening is loving

listening is loving positive provocations“The first duty of love is to listen.” – Paul Tillich

In the movie, Hector and the Search for Happiness, Hector – a bored London psychiatrist – travels the world looking for the meaning of happiness.  Along the way, he scribbles and sketches the key points he discovers in his nifty travel diary.

While flying to Africa, he lovingly assists a fellow passenger whose brain is about to explode due to the impact of the high altitude pressure on her medical condition.  Hector directs the pilot to fly at a lower elevation, relieves her pain by applying a cold compress to her head, and listens to her story.

When Hector questions the effectiveness of his help, she says, “Listening is loving.” Continue reading
