Gratitude Day 8 – Perfection Lesson

My meditation this morning took me to this beautiful place. We all strive for perfection but only few of us realise that the perfection is in the journey. There will always be cracks because that is how the light gets in (quote from Leonard Cohen). And without the cracks there would be no journey. Our growth is the perfection.

I thought about this. In my past job I used to always be in a hurry, i woud beat myself up if I didnt do things perfect, if I didnt complete them within the time frame I wanted to or if things didn’t turn out perfect. Yet when I let go of all the pressure and perfection things flow. When I let go my productivity goes up, I have great ideas without searching hard and  of course things don’t get to me as easily. This is when the process and the journey become the perfection.

Gratitude Day 5 – Like a Flower Without the Sun

If there was no sun most of the plants and flowers would not be able to survive. The sun is a crucial source where plants get their nutrition from in order to thrive. The body is exactly the same. Our body needs critical nutrients and trace minerals in order to function at its best and to support all the systems and processes. Without the right trace minerals we would lose electrolyte balance in the cells and this can then contribute to premature ageing and heart disease.

Today I am grateful for Mineral Essence by Young Living. This is one of my key supplements that I use to support my health. Mineral Essence contains over 62 ionic trace minerals, royal jelly, honey and essential oils to support absorption. As you can see I always make sure I have enough in my fridge!

Young Living conducted extensive research in order to determine that seawater and essential oils optimise conditions for a first rate mineral formula. Minerals also need to be perfectly balanced otherwise if an element is in excess it may create a reduced level in another element.

I love this company so much because at the centre of everything that they do is the creation of products that are of purpose. It is about supporting a better life. If you would like to find out more about my passion then click on the Transformation tab on the top menu.

 

 

Gratitude Day 4 – Ships of Friends

Life is like a rollercoaster. Some days it feels like we are on top of the world. Other days we wish things were going according to our expectations. This can be compared to the seasons in a year. We go through rough winters that can often shape us and teach us lessons. In spring we sow the needs for our harvest. Perhaps we put in extra hours in building our business or in learning a new skill. By the time summer arrives things are in full bloom and we are starting to harvest from our efforts. During autumn we finish harvesting and also store extras away for when winter comes around.
Today I am grateful for friendships. I am  referring to special bonds that stand the test of time. No matter whether you are going through good or bad times, that friend that is there for you to eat chocolates with, pick you up when you are down and is able to sing back the  song of your heart if you have forgotten the lyrics. These relationships should always be treasured with love.

Gratitude Day 2 – The Driver that Changes Everything

We all get those days where it seems to be that little bit harder to get up. Often it might be during the week when most of us go to a job. It can feel like the bed is holding you captive and it seems harder to make that first step out of bed.

Today I am grateful for a very special bus driver. He is the kind of person that greets everyone with a BIG smile. He adds little comments as the passengers come onboard such as “only 2 days to go until the weekend”. This driver is also the only driver that I have seen that wishes everyone a great day as the bus pulls into the train station.

What an impact could we all have on this world we live in if we only shared a smile with someone or truly cared with love? Perhaps there would be a shift where we might start looking forward to the weekdays and realise how truly powerful our attitude to life is.

Gratitude Day 1 – Stress as a Teacher

I had one of these nights  last night with tons of questions in my head. I feel like at times my life is missing purpose. I feel like at times I am trying to fill a gap with all the wrong things. This morning I remembered that happiness is an inside job. I kept asking myself how to turn things around and live life with more meaning.

Then during my lunch break it dawned on me that in order to bring more goodness into your life gratitude is key. So commencing today I am starting a gratitude challenge where I share my little nuggets of bliss with you.

Today I am grateful for medical medium and all the wonderful posts he shares on his instagram account. The message today “stress is impermanent”. This means  that this too shall pass. Look at stress like a teacher that has the capacity to turn you into a better version of yourself if you let it. Surrender and ask yourself what is the lesson in this?
