Last week at a mindfulness course we did the mountain meditation. I listened to it again this morning. It says to compare ourselves to a mountain. Life happens. Storms rage. Winds howl. The sun shines. Snow glitters. Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Seven: Mountain mindfulness meditation”

Journaling. One hundred and forty four. I can’t believe I’ve never written this as a reason before…. I mean, journaling, c’mon, it’s one of the first! Well, really it’s not the first, as can be seen, it’s reason 144. Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Four: Journaling”
Random acts of kindness 101. Bottled water.
We were driving down the road and saw these stacks of bottles.
The guy there offered us some, just because.
He took a pack of 24 and placed it in the boot of our car. Being that I only drink bottled water this was/is a real favour for me. He actually offered me more, and more, but I was too shy to accept.
What act of kindness has someone done for you today or can you do for someone else today?
I thought this was really helpful. I think I should dress up now! Put on makeup, curl my hair (and post a selfie on here???) Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Two: 20 Questions to Ask Yourself if You Feel Like Giving Up (reblog)”

Two years. Two years sounds so long. And so short. It’s been exactly that. Two years. Since I chose to give life a go. Two years that have gone by really fast and really slowly at the same time. Continue reading “One Hundred and Thirty Five: Two Years”
Tomorrow needs you. YOU are important. You are necessary.
The world’s been looking like a really dark place to me recently. I’ll share what I wrote this morning depicting the darkness at the end of this post. Yet somehow it’s not as dark at the moment.
The world hurts at the moment. I’m in tears, feeling really alone- which I pretty much am. Tired of trying and just want a break.
Yet I’m grateful. That I can cry. That I can let myself cry.
Plane rides. Sometimes they’re the most boring of journeys, sometimes they’re complete opposite. They can be a journey to a destination, and sometimes the journey can be the destination itself. Isn’t that always so?
It takes only a second. We’ve many moments in life. Each and every moment can be awesome. Thank you Kate for sharing this
It takes only a second to flash a smile
Yet it can make another’s life worthwhile!
It takes only a second to appreciate
That we steal another’s time being late!
It takes only a second to open our heart
Then real kindness we can impart!
It takes only a second to hate
But we all choose our own fate
It takes only a second to forgive
And it becomes so much easier to live …
It takes only a second for the future to become now
Yet all too often we miss it somehow?
It takes only a second to die
And we wont know why …
What can you do to take care of yourself today for – only a second?
So long as there’s life, there’s hope.
