Autumn arrives

18 Apr

The wind blows the golden red leaves out of the tree and they dance and somersault across the sky. Autumn is here.

time

12 Jul

A friend of mine recently gave me some good advice: never wish away your time.  You can wish you were somewhere else or doing something else but never wish away a minute of the time you have.

It is so common to hear people doing this “I wish it was Friday” or “I wish this day was over”, and we all slip into this mode on occasion without realising what this means.  Time is the one of the most valuable and irreplaceable resources that you can ever possess, along with your health and unconditional love.  There is a finite amount of time available to each of us and we can never reclaim time which has passed us by.

We can hope and plan for the future, we can look forward to things which are yet to come and we can do all this while living in the moment we have right now.

So next time you catch yourself thinking “I wish it was later already” try changing that thought, I’m going to try wishing I was at the beach!

new leaf

5 Jan

So a new year begins again.

A chance for a fresh start and endless possibilities.  There’s an energy to the beginning of a new year which encourages us to cleanse last year’s baggage and commit to making change in our life.  Turning over a new leaf.

Everyone is tinged with the aura of celebration and beginnings.

What are you going to do to make this year different from the last?  I am going to change the patterns in my life that hold me back.  How I will achieve this and measure it is another story.  First there are a lot of little milestones to be set, and habits to be changed.

They say it only takes a month to break a habit.  That has got to take some concerted effort.  And you need to know what you are changing that habit for, and what will replace that old behaviour.  Decide where you want to be, what is keeping you from being there and break that down into small singular parts which you can change one by one.

Focus.  Never give up.  Believe.

And so another unwritten year begins…

 

confetti

20 Nov
little shards
of a shattered mind
strands of self
scatter in the wind
your reflection
is fractured
where the cracks show
a spider web view
giving away pieces
of my person
chunks of heart and soul
worth less than time
snatching moments
waiting
to feel whole again
and my mind drifts
like confetti
dancing on the breeze
