Your value is in who you are

I recently went to Holy Island off the coast of Northumberland. As I walked with my family we arrived at a beautiful pebble beach. All along the beach there were beautiful pebble towers I instantly began looking for the tallest tower. And then began to build my tallest tower. Why do we feel the needContinue reading “Your value is in who you are”

Be true to yourself

Did you know that YOU are the most important person in your life? There will never be anybody that knows you the way you know you. This is why it is important that you are true to yourself. Being true to yourself starts with being honest with your self. It continues with presenting your trueContinue reading “Be true to yourself”

Fully restored

I wrote yesterday about how I was restoring an old bench – I thought I’d do a little update and show you the end result. Bench restored. The bench has had the debris removed. The old rotten slat has been replaced. We cleaned it up. We repainted it. We placed it in the garden toContinue reading “Fully restored”

An introduction to living on purpose

Living life on purpose is about choosing to live life according to what makes you feel most fulfilled. Many of us just go through life being knocked here and there in life, career and interests, without thinking about what we really want. Purpose is such an abstract concept: it is hard to pin down, whichContinue reading “An introduction to living on purpose”

Getting a little disoriented

I recently visited one of the most beautiful little villages in the UK. St Abbs is a tiny Scottish fishing village nestled close to the Scotland-England border and it is simply gorgeous. I was snapping photos left, right and centre (and I guess driving my very patient children a little crazy as the danced onContinue reading “Getting a little disoriented”

Saying YES opens the doors to joy in your life

Say YES. Today what will you say YES to? There’s so much going on in life that sometimes we unintentionally say yes to the wrong things. We say yes to the things that hold us back, and the things that keep us bound up in pain, grief, and despair. Say YES to living happy. SayContinue reading “Saying YES opens the doors to joy in your life”

Choosing to live life to the full

Live life to the full. I love this phrase – it is jam-packed full of wisdom and joy and possibilities. Life is meant to be lived, not loathed. The choices we make everyday determine whether we will enjoy life, or endure it. How are you choosing to live your life today? There are so manyContinue reading “Choosing to live life to the full”

A little reminder to keep remembering what’s important today (and every day)

Have you ever forgotten something so important that it messes with your head when you cannot remember it? I hate when that happens. There are certain things we need to remember, like our partner’s birthday, facts for an exam, or remembering to go to the toilet on a regular basis. There are other things it’sContinue reading “A little reminder to keep remembering what’s important today (and every day)”

The strength you have is not in your strength alone

The strength you have is not in your strength alone. There are many people out there with great strength, and yet their strength is not seen or known or used. I am one of them – you might be too. I believe we all have latent strength within us: strength that lies dormant and awaitsContinue reading “The strength you have is not in your strength alone”
