Why is Life Balance Important?

Why is Life Balance Important?

We’re all familiar with the term ‘work-life balance’ but what do we need to consider to fulfil the ‘life’ section? And why is ‘work-life’ balance just one component of overall life balance?

I’ve discovered that life balance is extremely important and plays a key part in happiness.

There is No Good and Bad…

There is No Good and Bad…

Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind.

The goal is to find it.’

I saw the above quote on Instagram last week and it reminded me of a weekend I had just before Christmas.

A nightmare weekend…

In the week leading up to this weekend I’d been self-sabotaging, i.e. doing all the things I know will make me feel crap and not doing the things on my ‘go to’ list. But I didn’t know why, so I was already feeling pretty frustrated and cranky! Keep reading

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I am!

I’m feeling super grateful for where I am in my life right now, so despite how busy the Christmas period can be I am making a conscious decision (because after all it is my decision!) to not get stressed and be grateful for all the positive things I have in my life!

I plan to laugh a lot, enjoy the company of my awesome friends and family, take some time to reflect on the last year and focus on all the exciting things I have planned in 2016!

I hope you all have an amazing time – do more of what you want and less of what you should!!

Acceptance and Accountability

Acceptance and Accountability

So we know life’s a journey, we hopefully have a good idea of where we are on that journey (if not check out my recent post ‘Life’s a Journey…’) and where we want to go, or at least where we don’t want to go – which is just as important!

So how do we change? For me, the starting point was with acceptance and accountability.

When Things Don’t Go According to Plan…

When Things Don’t Go According to Plan…

After my ‘Life’s a Journey…’ post, I wanted to show you how I apply this concept to real life. I’ve had a couple of situations not go according to plan recently, a couple of ‘knock backs’ shall we say, and I thought this was a great place to start.

The before…

Six months ago I wouldn’t have even sort out these opportunities but let’s say I had, I’d have taken these knock backs pretty bad. I’d have questioned my self-worth, my beliefs and mostly, I’d have let it scare me into never attempting to try for them again.

My negative thoughts would have run wild; ‘I don’t deserve this’, ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘there must be something wrong with me’, ‘I’m a failure’. I’d have felt unsettled, frustrated and a need to control everything.

I’d have dwelled on it and sought out all the ‘negative’ things in my life and seen them as being just my luck! The fact I didn’t get a parking space, another sign of my shitty luck! The fact I’m sat in traffic, yet another sign! Life sucks right?! Wrong!
