Quote of the week

Today’s quote is one that I live by every day, a personal favourite of mine by Nelson Mandela. I love the meaning of the quote, personally I believe that no one should settle for a life they are unfulfilled in. Strive for the best possible life you can live, because everyone can do it, it just takes a tonne of hard work and determination!

What is your ideal life?

Living the life you want to live!

Everyone has a dream of an ideal life, doing exactly what they want to do, for me it would be to live on my own stud farm breeding world class horses. That is my ideal life my dream and for some it is just a dream but for me it is my end goal in life. No dream is impossible and right now you might not be in the situation to be able to achieve your dream. I personally don’t have the funds or time right now to reach my dream but I will eventually I will make my dream come true. I saw a quote a few years ago that has stayed with me.  Don’t settle for making someone else’s dream come true! Go out there and start a plan to reach your dreams!

There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living- Nelson Mandela

How to be more grateful in life

Often in our daily lives we take even the simple things for granted, I know certainly I do, It’s only when our lives take a turn for the worst that we recognise these simple acts and wish we were back to normal. During the past year I have started to become more grateful for the simple things and it’s made such a difference to both my mindset and the way I live my life. Here are 3 simple ways to become more grateful in daily life:

  1. Making a list of what you are thankful for: this could be simple things like being healthy, fit, having a great group of friends or family around you. Looking back at this list when your not having a great day can always bring your mood to one more positive.
  2. Recognise the good in every day: as in one of my previous posts just listing 2 or 3 things each day that have made your day better such as one of your colleagues bringing in cakes (always makes your day better!) or finishing the project you have been working on. If your really struggling for ideas even simpler things such as getting a good night’s sleep or the weather can make you more positive!
  3. Showing kindness: Just spare a moment for those less fortunate than you that can’t afford the nice luxuries you have in your life. It amazes me how grateful one person can be for a small act of kindness whether you are buying a drink and some food to a homeless person or smiling at strangers in the street. It costs nothing to show kindness and can make you feel a whole lot better about your day!

So try being more grateful you will be surprised how much better and positive you can feel! If you’ve enjoyed this post please follow my blog for the latest updates! Have you got other ways of being more grateful if so please share in the comments below!pexels-photo-424517.jpeg

My 3 ways to stay positive!

People can find positivity in many ways reading books, watching webinars, listening to motivational speakers… the list can go on! Everyone is influenced differently but I wanted to share with you my top 3 way’s to stay positive.

  1. Make a playlist! I find listening to your favourite music really helps to ease any anxiety and keep drawing on those positive vibes, it helps if the music itself is positive for example on of my favourite songs to listen to is Happy by Pharrell Williams it might be slightly cheesy but it helps me feel positive.
  2. Have a collection of positive quotes, I have a section of my wall covered in them! By reading them every day it encourages you to stay inspired.
  3. Listening to motivational speakers, one of my favourite ones is the Ted talks section on Youtube. You can find hundreds of speakers each with there own idea’s for keeping you inspired.
