PASSION

By

passion

 Much unhappiness comes from people not following their passion. Many people are on the treadmill of life; following a routine, having a job just to pay the bills, raising a family and generally getting on with life because they have to.

We all have bills to pay and maybe you’re not in a position to just drop everything and start following your dreams. But incorporating your passions into your daily life will make life much easier and a nicer place to be.

passion

This could be spending an hour or even 30 minutes on something you love every day. If you continue to do this and ensure your passion is embedded into your daily routine before you know where you are you may just be able to give up that day job. My biggest belief is that small steps count. Small steps are better than taking no steps at all.

passionWe’re all here for a reason, if you have a passion deep inside that isn’t being fulfilled, then you know your purpose for being. Follow your heart and your dreams will come true. Start putting plans in place to make this happen. It’s a New Year, so make this year count for you. Get off the treadmill and start doing some real walking and you’ll be amazed at what you see and find. 

passion

Just remember time is passing anyway, so make sure you fit your passion into your day. Don’t regret not moving forward, don’t let other ‘stuff’ get in the way, you deserve to be happy and if you have a yearning to do something with your life, follow that yearning because that is your passion calling out to you. That is the reason you are here.

This week’s positive word is OPEN

This week’s positive word is

OPEN

Again, another word that you may be thinking isn’t really that positive, it’s just a word, but if we were to talk about how open you are, what would that mean to you?

How open is your mind at this moment in time?

How open is your heart? How open is your spirit? How open are your eyes?

How open are you to change? How open are you to opportunities?

open

It’s so easy to become stuck in a routine with every day passing us by, in essence, life passing us by. Even if we want to change we don’t know how, or we’re so used to the comfortable routine we’ve created that we’re scared of changing it.

But the only way to make changes in our lives is to have an open mind. Be open to new opportunities. Don’t dismiss ideas or changes because you feel it doesn’t fit with your current way of thinking.

The only way we can move forward in life is to open our eyes, open our minds and open our hearts. Once your mind is open, the world is full of possibilities and life becomes much more exciting.

 This may not happen overnight, but once you’ve decided to have an open mind, you’re already more than halfway there.

Just remember life is too short to have a closed mind.

This week’s positive word is NOTICE

This week’s positive word is

NOTICE

By Victoria J.Brown

www.victoria-brown.com

You may be thinking that this isn’t really a positive word … it’s just a word!

Well it depends how you look at the world, and if you were one of those people who did think, ‘Notice, is just a word,’ then please have a read of this post and really think about what you actually notice about you and the world around you.

Notice Picture 1

When you start noticing the world around you, you’ll notice how a word such as ‘notice’ can be very positive. How noticing life can be one of the most positive things you can do for yourself.

Notice Picture 2

The world is a beautiful and wonderful place if you just stop for a second and notice it, you will see it too. We are often so focused on our ‘to-do list’ that we take for granted all the good that surrounds us, we become to expect rather than noticing.

The world is full of busy … busy people, busy lives … busy, busy, busy – especially at this time of the year! People don’t have time to stop and notice the world around them. There’s so much to do … but there is actually so much to see.

If you feel this sounds like you … have you noticed? Have you noticed how stressed you feel? Take 5 or 10 minutes out to just breathe! 5 or 10 minutes of your time will not damage you as much as not taking that time to breathe.

Breathe. Look around you. Listen. Use all your senses to notice your world. It’s wonderful to be here and alive, we must not take these days for granted.

 Be thankful always and take notice.

This week’s positive word is MAGIC

This week’s positive word is

MAGIC

Do you remember being a child and believing in magic?

Do you remember your imagination being stretched so far that anything was possible?

Do you remember that feeling?

MAGIC - PICTURE 1

As we become adults we are filled with norms and expectations of society that we feel we should adhere to. Unfortunately magic isn’t one of the norms. In adulthood, we describe events as coincidences. But what if you were to look deeper into these coincidences?

You know I like to give you little exercises, well take ten minutes (or longer if you can) to think about any ‘coincidences’ that have happened to you in previous years, incidents that have sent you down a particular route. Have a think about the reasons these incidents may have happened … did they lead to another event? Did they send you down a different path?

MAGIC PICTURE 2

Now think about the people you’ve met on your life journey. Have you ever thought about the people who have entered into your life? Some may have passed through for a sort while, while others have stayed by your side through thick and thin. Just because someone doesn’t stay in your life for a long period of time it doesn’t mean they weren’t meant to be there … totally the opposite, they were there for a reason. A magical reason to help you on your life journey.

Now take another ten minutes out to think about the people who have entered into your life. Think initially about those who have passed through, write down their names if you have time, then write a reason as to what you gained from that relationship, what lessons have been learned?

Now look at the people in your life, and write down those that are closest to you and think about the magic that surrounds your relationship with them. Write a paragraph on each person. Think about your magical relationships. How did you meet? What have you experienced together? How have you both supported each other? It’s a wonderful feeling to value the magic in a relationship. Was it a coincidence that you met?

Some people believe in logic, but those who believe in magic will experience are more fulfilling life, a life of limitless possibilities and opportunities. Once you believe in the magic, you carry that around inside of you, projecting it like a sparkling trail. An amazing feeling that you are being protected and there is a higher purpose. Our time here is magical, it should be our job to spread that magic wherever we go.

In the words of Roald Dahl …

So start believing in magic and watch miracles happen. It’s actually very exciting when you realise that magic does exist, and by believing you can make it happen.

Believe in the magic and watch the magic happen

This week’s positive word is LOVE

This week’s positive word is

LOVE

You may be thinking this is quite an obvious word this week, but you’d be amazed at how many people miss the opportunity to show love.

Ask yourself, how many times in a day do you show love?

When I first heard about the Law of Attraction, it was the love element that struck me first. ‘The Secret‘ came into my life when I needed it, when life seemed to be throwing challenge after challenge at me. If you haven’t watched, The Secret, I highly recommend it, especially if you haven’t heard of the Law of Attraction, or are just starting to learn about it. The Secret is a great place to start.

At this particular time in my life there was so many challenges; financial, relationships, family … you name it, it was all very challenging … like a snowball effect! There was just one things after another. I didn’t understand why all these things were happening to me, I had negative view on life and would ask myself constantly, ‘Why me???’

However, when I changed my feelings around, turned anger into love and looked outside of myself and my own world, good things started to happen. It’s not only about the words that are spoken, it’s about the actions that are taken, the thoughts that move in and out of our minds constantly.

LOVE

Now, don’t get me wrong, it took effort to turn my thoughts around, it was a real effort in what seemed like utter darkness with no light at the end of the tunnel. But sure enough that light came, not just a dribble of light, not just a small glow, it was a whole load of party lights, fireworks and more!

It becomes an addiction sending out love to people. A good addiction. I receive so much love back now I often find it overwhelming. Plus, the initial effort it took to turn my thoughts around, is just natural now. My thoughts and actions are always full of love. I know this, because of the love I get back. The world would be such an amazing, fulfilling place if everyone could be more loving.

It’s one of the reasons I qualified as a Law of Attraction Practitioner, because I wanted to teach others have marvellous it actually is. The more love you give out there, the more you receive back. So go on, this week your task is to show as much love as you possibly can and reap the rewards.

LOVE

This week’s positive word is KINDNESS

This week’s positive word is

KINDNESS

Kindness is a characteristic that should be integrated into your life without a second thought.

kindness

Kindness leads directly to gratitude, appreciation, happiness and love. Being kind to someone can benefit you just as much as it benefits them.

There is actually scientific research that shows the benefits of being kind.

You can see the range of research here at Think Kindness

kindness

It’s true … it doesn’t actually cost anything to be kind! From a smile in the street, to letting someone in front of you in a queue or giving up your seat on the bus. Simple but effective acts of kindness that will be integrated into your life and make you a happier person.

So here’s five simple ways you can be kind today:

  1. Ask yourself which friend could do with your help? Even a simple text to ask how they are doing, tell them you are thinking about them, can truly lift their day.
  2. Do you have lots of clothes hanging in your wardrobe that need to be cleared out? Do it now! Donate to charity! In fact, go that one step further and give away an item that you love!
  3. When you’re out and about today, compliment someone … never underestimate how much they will need it.
  4. Hide notes of encouragement to your spouse, partner, family members, children, friends … whoever in your life needs it. Maybe they don’t need it, but it will show them how much you care and will boost their day.
  5. Visit someone who needs company; care homes and hospitals are the perfect places to spread kindness. You’ll be amazed at how many people don’t have visitors, so make a difference in their lives.

These five ideas are just the tip of the kindness boat … there are plenty of ways to show kindness and reap the benefits in the process. Remember, you can’t fail by being kind, as any kindness given is never wasted.

This week’s positive word is JOURNEY

This week’s positive word is

JOURNEY

“It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey!’

This is one of the most popular quotes relating to enjoying your journey towards your goal. However, if you’re in a frustrated place at the moment you made find it hard to look at your journey as enjoyable. One of the best things to do if you’re feeling like you’re on a never-ending treadmill is to STOP!

YES … STOP! STOP THINKING! STOP DOING!

JUST STOP … AND BREATHE

Take five minutes to sit in silence. Listen to your breathing and then think about all that you have that you are grateful for. Don’t think about the obstacles, don’t think about the challenges, with this exercise there are no buts’, maybes’ or cannot’.

There are lessons to be learned on this life journey, you just need to understand what they are. There is a reason you have ventured on this path and one way to understand and appreciate that path is to be grateful for where you are now.

Journey

 Imagine if all that was happening was happening for a reason, imagine the struggles were designed to enable us to move forward stronger than we were before. To believe that we have the power to push ourselves to another level. If you sit for a second and imagine how it would feel to get through these struggles … imagine all that has happened is to help you become stronger.

Journey

Sometimes we have to take a different route to help us move forward, but don’t ever lose sight of your goal, don’t ever believe you’re not capable of doing this. If your heart is telling you to follow a passion then it’s your mission to follow and accomplish whatever goals you feel you need to achieve. Your life is made up of different puzzles that sometimes really do feel like hard work to figure out. You MUST continue on this journey, even if it’s one small step at a time.

Journey

Believe in yourself, believe you can do this. Start writing down daily what you have achieved and you will soon become grateful that you are moving forward. Don’t look at the setbacks, the obstacles, the challenges, don’t focus on the negative, focus on the things that are carrying you forward, because if you believe you are here for this reason, you will continue to push through those barriers.

Things to remember on your journey:

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it

You will only regret the things you didn’t do, not the things you did

Every step counts no matter how small

Ask yourself … what can I learn from these challenges?

Be grateful daily 

DO NOT STOP!

Journey
