Trust – There’s a Reason

il_340x270.685709934_np3j

“I trust that everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.” – Oprah Winfrey

While there may be unpleasant situations that happen in life, they are lessons nonetheless. Lessons that are meant to be learnt from, and provide us with the tools to effectively cope with similar situations in the future. They are meant to provide us with wisdom, intuition, perspective, and guidance. We are able to grow physically, psychologically, and spiritually, and become a better ‘version’ of our previous self.

There have been many occasions that I was blind to the reason behind particular positive or negative situations that occurred in my life. For some, I still have not been able to understand why things happened the way they did, but I have faith that one day the intent will be revealed to me.

“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.”

Here are some lessons I have learned from the people that have entered my life:

Being cheated on taught me the value of loyalty and honesty.
I have learned self-love and self-worth when I became exhausted trying to live up to someone else’s expectations.
Losing someone taught me to be grateful of life and my loved ones still living.
Change has taught me to just go with the flow.
Fear has taught me to be strong.
Worry has taught me that it is nothing more than fear over the unknown, and something I have little control over.
Relationship endings have taught me to never settle for less than I deserve, and to let go.
Depression has taught me how great happiness feels.
Distance has taught me that no matter where you are in the world, you will always be connected by heart.
Lack of time and availability has taught me to value quality over quantity.
Lost friendships have taught me that not everyone is meant to stay in your life forever (and that it is okay). People change as they grow and sometimes your values, beliefs and rituals may longer align with previous relationships.
I have learned if things are truly meant to be, then they will just be.

Every person and significant event that occurs during your life span truly helps you to become stronger, wiser, kinder, and ultimately happier.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”  – Marilyn Monroe

The Law – of Attraction. (The Secret)

 

Where do I even begin?

The Secret.
Life transforming!

I was a huge skeptic too, at first. 

How could a single book(s), or theory hold so much truth? So much wisdom? So much perspective? Why wasn’t everyone following the words of this book? Why isn’t everyone leading the life they want? Why isn’t everyone radiating with happiness? 

Too bad for them, right? Not exactly. To believe is a choice. It is a similar choice people make when they decide to believe in God (or not). You believe because you want to believe. You believe because it provides you with hope, faith, love, and happiness. It provides you with guidance, purpose, and value. You will find an abundance of research on the internet that either affirms the Law of Attraction theory or is against it. Ultimately, the choice is yours. But seriously, what do you have to lose?

I wanted to share this book, and its secrets – its words, with everyone. I was so moved by it that I stopped in at the local bookstore on my way to meet a friend one evening.  I ended up being late for our date, for once (only by 15 mins), but it brought me so much joy to provide him with this gift.

What is The Secret?

It is the Law of Attraction.

 ” It is the belief that the universe creates and provides for you that which your thoughts are focused on. “Like Always Attracts like.” The results of positive thoughts are always positive consequences. The same holds true for negative thoughts always leading to bad outcomes.” – The Law of Attraction 


Thoughts Produce Things.

Learn more about the Law of Attraction

The secret really highlights the practice of daily gratitude. Being genuinely thankful, from your heart and soul, is the ultimate way to attract positive consequences. And it really feels great. It means you appreciate more than just yourself. Selflessness.

Every evening, or just before bed, I write a list of the things I am grateful for that day, as well as the things I am grateful for that will come into my life in the future. I wake up the next morning feeling happy and refreshed, conjuring up new ways that I can give back to the life.

The Secret Film is available on Neflix.

Rejuvenate Your Mind and Body with these Simple Practices

BigBanner-HowtoSucceed.png

Self Care 101

Your mind and body deserved to be lavished with some quality tender love and care, every once in a while. Preferably, daily.

How are you supposed to give your absolute best to life when you don’t feel your absolute best?

Life comes with an abundance of demands, and not everyone knows how to adequately cope with them. Some people can manage many tasks in a given period without feeling constrained, whereas others may feel the burden of stress and become easily overwhelmed.


Here are some simple, yet effective, self-care practices that can help you feel relaxed, and rejuvenated:

Sleep –  Go to bed early and get into a routine.

Mindfulness and meditation – Get in-touch with your inner self.

Exercise and eat healthy – Because you will look and feel great.

Disconnect from technology – Because it is frying our brains.

Drink water –  Drink least 1.5 to 2L a day (and more if you exercise).

Take a break – Escape for 10 mins, close your eyes and just breathe.

Practice Gratitude – I can’t preach this enough, the more thankful you are, the happier you will be.

Recite positive affirmations – Because you truly are an amazing person.

Smile more, laugh often – Instant joy for the soul.

Inspirational / Life Quotes –  Read a few before you go to bed.

Go outside – Become one with nature, or just go breathe in some fresh air.

Call a loved one – and tell them how much you appreciate and love them (and miss them).

Meet up with a friend – Friends are good for the soul.

Snuggle up with a love one – Because it feels awesome!

A long, embraced hug from a loved one – Because it also feels awesome!

Declutter your space – Because it really does declutter your mind.

Go on a date with yourself – It will make you feel great about yourself.

Music therapy – There is nothing more therapeutic than getting lost in thought and music.

Learn to say “No”– Be honest, if there is something you don’t want to do, speak up!

Learn a new skill – Because it makes you feel accomplished, and you may even discover a hidden passion.

Self-help books – Because they really can help. They provide many tools to help manage emotions, they help make connections, they can really transform your view of life, and help you to view it with a positive, less complicated lens.

Relieve stress with Colouring – Seriously it works!

Submerge yourself – in water, a nice hot bath. Throw in some bath bombs (if you must), light some candles, and turn on some peaceful music. It feels AmaZZING! Tranquility!

Read a book  – Getting lost in the pages of a good novel, is a really great temporary escape from reality.

Mani/Pedi/Massage – Because pampering yourself never felt better!

Reflect on your accomplishments – Because it truly does affirm how incredibly hard you have worked to get where you are now. You will appreciate your efforts, and feel proficient.

Check-in on your life goals (are you on track?) – Helps you to make necessary adjustments in a timely manner, or confirms if you are on track.

Stay Organized (Daily tasks/goals) – You will feel less overwhelmed, and be more productive.

Journal – Get your thoughts down on paper.  I suggest you fill your journal with positive thoughts. Turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts.  Write down what you are thankful for, talk about the positive moments that happened, and write positive affirmations about yourself.

READ “The Secret” By Rhonda Byrne – Because it will transform your life.

When all else fails…….. A glass of Pinot always does the trick.

The End! ♥
