How has ‘Your Year’ been???
Were you true to Yourself….& followed the paths you chose as best as You could…even if things didn’t go completely as planned???
Somehow I managed to achieve most that I hoped for…there were some challenges professionally & personally – but hey, I had to keep pushing through. Not saying all is ‘perfect’…just content with where I’m at. And that’s all that’s important – as long as you’re happy with all that You do. Don’t worry about what others think of your choices.
We all have different circumstances & at stages in life. We set our own goals; have desires & wishes…but the one thing I feel is important, is that we move – & not get ‘stuck’ somewhere waiting for it all to come to us. ‘Cause babe….that ain’t gonna happen.
Only YOU can set your mind to be all you wish…only YOU can ‘turn it up a gear’ – no matter what ‘that’ is for YOU. There are often curve balls thrown in our way for good measure in life, in some shape or form…it’s how YOU deal with those that matters.
I hope You can reflect back on ‘Your’ 2017 & pat yourself on the back & smile….Yes I did it!
Life is a roller coaster….how do YOU ride it?!!
Roll on 2018 I say…I’m ready for ya! 😉
Shortbread has been part of my Christmas tradition since I was a child. My sister & I used to make it with my mum for Christmas & give to family as gifts. As an adult I continued the tradition & enjoy making it listening to Christmas Carols….my husband is sad he only gets to enjoy it once a year – unfortunate for him?!!
I normally do the traditional version…only real butter, sugar, rice & plain flour. This year I’m going to do a mix to include gluten-free for a friend….here’s the recipe for everyone to enjoy!!
With lots of parties with family & friends in the next couple of weeks….we ALL overindulged this time of year. Trying to keep some BALANCE is the key.
Remember….things can be difficult for some this time of year…talk to those around you when needed – look out & support each other. There’s added pressure during the Festive season which some experience…here’s some extra tips to get you through. XO
Lifeline is also there for those in need 13 11 14
I wish you a Merry Christmas & an amazing New Year!!
Stay safe & have FUN!!!
How is it our lives get soo busy….
Catching up with family & friends over the last 2 weeks back in Perth, has allowed me to reflect on how our lives sometimes move forward slowly & at other times…life seems to jump ahead. It seems some people are at that ‘constant stage’ – daily routine, lots of running around for kids, work…with a little bit thrown in for them. Others have something new happening every other month. We all move at different paces…at different stages of our life. Hence…when we compare ourselves to another we can sometimes feel we ‘have been left behind’. Please remember – we really can’t compare…we just are where we ‘are’ at this point in time.
My main focus of my trip was to spend time with my grandparents – my Nan is in a home as she has dementia. Unfortunately she has regressed quickly within a year ago from when I last saw her…though she seems to recognise my voice?! LOL! Norma introduced me to natural health when I was a little girl – we’d make pot pourri, soaps, & ‘smelly’ gifts with her essential oils. On my last visit with my dad & grandpa I took along a small heart shaped pouch filled with her pot pourri she’d made probably 30 years ago. I encouraged her to smell it…hoping her memories would come flooding back to her. I can only hope she sensed the familiarity….
My Grandpa is a lovely old man…yes he’s lost a lot of weight & is frail, but he is still sharp as a tack with a great sense of humour & much to my amazement doesn’t even have a carer looking after him at his own home. My aspiration is to live as long as his active life. Yes he’s on some medications…but who isn’t at nearly 94 years old. He still takes his fish oil, magnesium etc …& a glass of wine at dinner. He’s recently been put on oxygen overnight & when needed – but he’s still very independent, & texts me often. He has nature at his doorstep with birds visiting each day & he loves his beautiful garden. He says he feels his time is done…now is his time to share stories of his life – with so many tales to tell.
Life…it goes round in circles. Changing from one stage, to the next. Life to me is for living a full & happy life – not just existing day to day.
Yes….we all choose our own paths, now…make the most of each beautiful step you take.by
