A Simple Bunch Of Flowers Part of my self love and self care routine is to do things that make me happy. That light me up. That help to nurture and grow my self love.One thing that I love to do is buy a beautiful fresh bunch of flowers.For years I didn't do nice things for myself because, meh whatever. Now I make a point of it. Taking the time to do things you love, even the smalles things make a big difference. These little things are little steps on your healing path. Little steps that reaffirm your self love, self worth & happiness. What little things can you/do you do on a regular basis that are just for you? Just because you can?

Believe

Believe

Architecture
Believe I believe there is almost nothing we can't do. Honestly. Once we get past our limiting and negative beliefs, the world is literally our oyster. I think we are so used to thinking things are not possible that we have forgotten to dream. We've been so caught up in this thing called life, our habits and systems that we forgot that we can imagine better things. For me the best time to dream and imagine is right before sleep at night. That way there are no other distractions to pull me away. We know that what we focus on and believe, we achieve. Part of this process is to think about what we want, picture it in our mind and attach emotion to it. Attaching emotion is the kicker - once we can see it…

Why We Need To Stop Rushing

Why We Need To Stop Rushing

Architecture
Time To Stop Rushing Being in a state of rush is a fear based reaction.  It is also a scarcity mentality as you think it needs to be done now or else... (insert your own circumstance here). I've always been an achiever but attached to that was a sense of urgency and often overwhelm. It's almost like on some level I was thriving on it. Looking for more pressure and stress to push myself further. It wasn't a conscious thing but it came from deep within.  The only thing all of that pressure and rushing got me was burnout. And not just once. It was a routine, almost like a dance I did with myself. Work harder and faster.  Want to do, be or learn something else?  Sure!  Let's squeeze…

Everything We Do Is A Habit

Everything We Do Is A Habit

Architecture
Everything We Do Is A Habit Although we do have free will, every single little thing we do each day is a habit.One that might have been with us from birth - or even from generations ago.Think about your morning routine.  Chances are you do roughly the same thing every single day.  Yes, sometimes you might consciously try and change something but fast forward a week or so and BAM right back to the same old habits.I think about this sometimes when I am driving to work.  The same way every day for years.  To the point when I am going to somewhere else in the general area, that I end up driving towards work. The subconscious mind in quite incredible as it stores these habits to ensure we don't miss…

Mental Health Month

Mental Health Month

Architecture
October is Mental Health Month According to the World Health Organisation, Mental Health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.Mental health is an issue that has touched each and every one of us.  In fact it is one of the major health issues facing us today.When I was growing up, people never spoke about mental health.  Like it was some kind of shameful infliction.  I cannot even imagine how painful it must have been to have a mental health issue in such a closed minded time.Thankfully now it is more ‘acceptable’ to have mental health…

Release The Old & Make Space For The New

Release The Old & Make Space For The New

Architecture
I am releasing the old to make space for the new The way to achieve and move forward is not by doing more of what you already are. That clearly isn't working.It's time to release what is not serving you. Time to make space for the new.The new you. The new beginning. The new adventure. The new business. The new goals. Our subconscious programming means that we are on a constant loop. Whatever is going on in there - and science says around 70% of our beliefs are limiting and negative - is not serving us. If you think about the areas of your life which are lacking, that's the tell tale sign that your belief system is not beneficial to you.That's where we start  By releasing the old belief system, we…

The Power of Attitude

The Power of Attitude

Architecture
The Power of Attitude “There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” ― Napoleon Hill Our thoughts, feelings and action determine our attitude. Pretty much everything comes back to attitude. With the wrong attitude we make poor decisions, don't achieve our goals, live and work in chaos and never really achieve what we set out to accomplish. You will notice that some people just seem to be able to achieve anything. Whatever they decide upon happens. This is a direct correlation with their attitude. In the past I've had the right thoughts and actions but not the right feelings  I've always been a hustle kinda girl - to get…

Transforming the Perception of Stress

Transforming the Perception of Stress

Architecture
Transforming the Perception of Stress The perception of stress is different for every single one of us.What I find stressful may not even register for you.It often goes back to the age something occurred, the circumstances of our life at the time or how it effected you and others around you - and can also apply to a situation (what has happened around or to you) or a condition (a physical condition such as injury, illness or diagnoses).The other interesting thing is that a lot of the stressful beliefs are carried forward from previous generations.  This means that we have stress responses to things that were not in our lifetime and could date back to a minimum of 14 generations on both sides of our family.  That's a lot of…

Why Giving Up Control Is So Good For You

Architecture
Giving up control is so good for your health Control is an issue that a lot of us have.  It can rear it’s ugly head in so many ways.Truth is though, the only thing you can control is how you react to a situation.   Anything else you’re just stressing yourself and hurting others.Control can sneak in with so many formsAs mums, it’s normal to have a lot of control when they are babies, toddlers and young children.  The problem comes when they are teenagers.  This is the time we should let go of the reins and let them explore – make mistakes, learn who they are and what they like/want to be.Trying to control every little thing at that age is not good.  The reality is that our kids…
