In this blog article I pay homage to Mother Teresa's poem on celebrating and honoring life.
Mother Teresa’s poem reminds you that life loves you and how important it is to live in the now moment by moment.
This is something I used to struggle with. I used to project myself into the future all the time instead of living and appreciating the present moment. Should you do the same; focusing too much on the future, you do not appreciate the present moment fully enough and I believe that a balance is necessary.
Or you might be someone who is stuck in the past and you constantly return to the past thinking about what was or what could have been? This is a problem because you do not appreciate the present moment by moment since you are stuck on past memories you cannot change or on what was or could have been.
Mother Teresa's poem is a reminder to be grateful for what is, for each day of your life and to celebrate the present moment by moment.
You can do this.
Dr Wayne Dyer said that too many people die with their music still in them. What Dr Dyer meant was that many people have dreams but alas they never manage to accomplish them. Let this not be you...

Should you be disciplined, focused and consistent you are most certainly moving forward in the direction of your dream faster than you think. You might have the tendency to be hard on yourself because things do not seem to be moving ahead as quickly as you would like them to. However, trust:
Why are your thoughts everything?
Because your thoughts affect the quality of your life entirely:
As a reiki healer I often talk about vibration or the type of energy you project out whether it be positive or negative. When you project a negative vibration it is because you cultivate a negative way of thinking or negative thoughts and this negative way of thinking affects all areas of your life. On the other hand, when you project out a positive vibration it is because you cultivate a positive way of thinking and this positive way of thinking affects all areas of your life.
The choice is yours. Henry Ford said: “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” Choose your campus wisely the ‘naysayer’ or the ‘yes! I can’ campus and be aware that depending on which campus you choose...
In my vlog article Discover 3 Ways To Create Change I share with you 3 ways you can create change in your life and put them into practice when you do not get the results that you desire:
1. Stop doing what does not work
2. Do more of what works
3. Try introducing something new.
However, in this blog article I take this a step further by sharing with you a simple process you can implement to start doing something new or to do more of what works when you feel stuck.
Your purpose = your WHY
Your purpose is the reason why you do something, the direction you wish to take. It gives meaning to the reason WHY you do what you do. Knowing your purpose ensures that you are in the flow.
Your vision = your WHAT
Your vision is your WHAT. It is the way you express your purpose and the image you build and hold in your mind. Your vision answers the following question: how...
Isaac Newton said: “Truth is ever to be found in simplicity and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
In this blog article I share with you 3 steps you can take to simplify your life. This is particularly important if things have got on top of you, there is too much clutter, you feel drained and overwhelmed and your energy levels are not what they should be.
One of the reasons why you might resist change is because of fear of the unknown and uncertainty. However, the best way I have found to simplify your life is to let go of anything that is stopping you from having a sense of inner peace, joy and happiness.
You might feel like you are not succeeding if you have to let go of certain things, however this extra load might be the very thing that is causing you stress and anxiety.

Do you have a project you have not launched yet?
In this blog article I share with you 5 things I have learnt since launching The Everyday Life Balance Show on the 1st of June 2017:

The truth about life is that you are forever running against the current when you either contemplate the past and the future or ignore the present moment.
However, the more you ignore the present moment the more you distance yourself from ‘being joy’. I would describe ‘being joy’ as the highest state of being that is true to you, that makes you simply happy, like a natural state of ecstasy.
There is no separation between ‘being joy’ and your personality traits. Therefore, 'being joy' means that you choose to deepen your relationship with yourself.
For this reason, living your life on purpose is essential for: “Where there is no purpose there is no joy.”
This is something I experienced in my mid 30’s when I questioned the meaning of my life. I felt lost, empty, unclear and disconnected from the world. I asked God: “Why am I here?” I did not feel complete, fulfilled, whole, happy and content despite the fact that I had...
There are certain laws which govern the universe you must be aware of in order to transform your life, to look forward to a better future and to get better results.
One of these laws is the Law of Cause & Effect, which dictates that:
1. You are at cause when you take full responsibility for whatever happens in your life.
2. You are at effect when you blame others.
When you look at your life, what law is it governed by most of the time?
Should you be at cause you are better equipped to respond to your life’s challenges by making wiser choices. Should you be at effect you are more likely to react to your life’s challenges and as a consequence limit your choices. Therefore, when you want to change your results, being at cause is more empowering than being at effect.
When you understand the Law Of Cause And Effect a number of principles come to mind for reflection and are worth considering to obtain better results:
I am doing something totally different this week. This blog article is more like a poem or a meditation for self-reflection.
The fundamental principle to live your life authentically is to TRUST. When you trust your heart is wide open and you surrender fully.
Here is the meditative process to live your life authentically:
Please sit comfortably in a quiet place and take a few deep breaths in through your nose and slowly out through your mouth or nose.
Become aware of your body and let go of any sensation that feels uncomfortable by saying, for example: “I let go of the sensation I feel in my arms and I smile…” Keep doing this until your body really feels lighter and you feel at ease.
Now begin the 3-step meditation for self-reflection keeping your eyes closed:
Step 1: “I trust myself” – meditate on the following:
“As I look at myself in the mirror, I love what I see and all that I am.
I trust my inner voice, my intuition and my gut feeling...
