Four weeks ago, I started a new daytime job, and whilst the people are very nice, and the salary always comes in handy, it’s not the position I applied for or the hours I wanted, yet – I accepted their offer when it was made, and for the moment, I’m remaining in the role, because……
Perhaps, it has something to teach me.
Although, within a week of commencing the position; I tore 3 ligaments in my left foot, an injury which is still hampering my life. This includes; no gym, and as it’s a sit-down role, I’m becoming stir crazy. Aaaaagghhhh!!
Not, a full 2 weeks later, I contracted a horrendous cold, which I’m still suffering from, and unfortunately, my contracted hours do not allow for much else in my life, and I’ve temporarily given up many things I enjoy.
Not forgetting, the intensive training, which the role requires, ensuring I’m too tired when I get home, to even want; to pick up my laptop…..as you can imagine; my emails are taking on a life of their own.
(It also has, too many rules & regulations to suit me – I feel like I’ve lost my freedom).
As time’s been passing, I’ve come to the conclusion, that; I’m doing what’s expected, or; what’s considered socially acceptable, because it’s the right thing to do. And, in the process; my life is passing me by, whilst; I’m settling for something I don’t want.
Perhaps, this was the lesson, I needed to learn – My life, is exactly that; “My Life” and I shouldn’t; Settle!
So…….I’ve set my inner-self a time limit, and made a vow, and you’re all welcome to hold me to it.
By the end of September or, preferably; June; I will have moved on from this position, and not only found something better, but it’ll also be more fitting for accomplishing my own life’s dream, and I’m hoping that those of you in similar situations, will do the same.
Find Your Dream, and Live It!
(PS: I haven’t forgotten you. And, thank you to those, who haven’t forgotten me either).
Success Comes In Many Forms.
From the child taking its first step,
To an elderly person still agile,
Success welcomes us all.
Neither age nor gender nor race
can impede our chance to succeed
in reaching our dream,
or our chosen goal.
Success is not; the biggest house,
the fastest car, or
the nameplate on your door,
but it is a compassionate heart,
a smiling face,
and challenges overcome,
Success is not; money in the bank,
stamps on your passport, or
fancy gym memberships
But it is; a helping hand,
a forgiving nature
and a welcoming home.
Success is not; a famous face,
a fancy title or
the latest cellular phone,
But it is; the will to try again,
when all others; would’ve given up.
Success is not;
the belief that everything,
is one’s due reward
But it is; faith,
Commitment and persistence,
Together with an inner trust,
that all will be well.
So if you’re ready to walk away from your dream,
after one too many setbacks, remember….
Failure is only temporary.
Success is eternal and has no firm definition.
Are these children; Indigo, Crystal or Rainbow souls?
Animals are more incredible than we can imagine…..just like Spirit, they; think, feel, love, hurt, and give unconditionally.
As a former skeptic of the ability to communicate with animals via telepathy I was curious as to what people who are not so open to such ideas would say about pet psychics.
I must say that I do not believe that everyone who claims to have this ability is truly being honest. Just like the psychic medium field is plagued with fraud, so is the animal communicator field. Sadly when one has an experience that does not meet their expectations, they tend to tell everyone about it. Those who have had a genuine experience do not always inform their friends and family since they do not want to deal with being ridiculed by others who have not had their own experience or whom do not have an open mind.
Even after discovering the ability to “speak” with the dead, I was not ready to accept that you could talk…

This morning, much to my delight, I discovered a letter in my mailbox, which included two free double passes to see Goosebumps at my local cinema, also included was a notification that I’d won a prize pack, consisting of flashing shoelaces, bouncing putty, and other such merchandise.
Now, as; in the last 12 month, I’ve also been lucky enough to win; a family pass to Perth Zoo and to a Disney On Ice spectacular, I’m not really certain; what the message from Spirit is. Are they saying; grow-up, or re-discover the joy in life?
I’m veering towards; revive my ‘Joy’, and as in 2015, I was also, very kindly gifted with tickets to a Sam Smith concert, that’s my story & my sticking to it……not saying, I don’t have the odd childish moment, but don’t we all?
2015 for me, was a difficult year, although, I did connect with some incredible people online, yourself included, but it was also a growth year, during which I learn a lot, and frequently spouted my affirmations – I phrased it that way, because; there were times my affirmations; became a little panicked, but hey, I survived! Always; an important and worthy goal!
I have some specific mantras that I use on a regular basis, and I find they generally work within days. They run the gamut, from health to money issues, and I try to recite them when on the rowing machine at the gym – what else can you do, when you’re sat rowing towards a busy road, just outside a window…..sweeping meadows it’s not.
An old favourite, you might want to borrow is;
I attract prosperity, abundance, financial security, and unexpected money into my life each day.
But, back to the ‘Joy’ issue, when was the last time you felt such an emotion in your life? Or, has it been such a long time that you’re not really sure what brings you ‘Joy’ anymore?
I’m not talking happiness, or even contentment because we can feel either on a daily basis whether it be; happiness at work or contentment to be sat in front of the TV with a cuppa.
I mean real soul-deep joy. The type of joy engendered by the birth-of-a-child, or getting the all-clear from a; scary health issue, and dare I say it; money appearing just when you need it drastically.
You may not think that; these 3 examples should be grouped together, but real ‘Joy’ is subjective to each and every person, on earth.
To a thirsty child in Africa, dirty water, may bring joyful cries, to a homeless person, one night in a shelter, could touch their heart. And, to a rescued animal, first-cuddles from a loving human may be the greatest thing since Smackos (dog treats) were invented.
So, take 5 minutes today, review your life, and think about the last time you felt, heart-wrenching ‘Joy’, and I want you to revel in the sensations that appear with the memory, and hold on to them, so that you can bring them to mind, whenever you’re in a dark moment
