Shake It Up

 Happy New Year’s Revolution

I wrote this post in 2014, still stands (on it’s head)

shake it up

I’m avoiding resolutions, routines and ruts.

If I find myself doing the same thing I am going to get uncomfortable.

I got up to do my ‘usual’ (yawn, how lazzzt year) yoga and meditation but made sure I did in an unusual position, a fresh place and at a new time.

So I am typing with my nose and in a headstand.

And about to drink my tea with a straw.

Shake it up.

This from one of my favourite Rascals




Thank you @Aypee for sharing your passion –

Passion is about how much you will give up to have what you want and be driven  by that.

It isn’t the contemporary view that it is ‘a lovely idea that makes me feel good so I’m going to focus on that’.

The passion of Christ was about what he sacrificed to save the world.


But here’s the reality:
Passion is just a feeling!

And here’s the real question:
What feeling do you want to have about your business or your life?

If you  are waiting to get that feeling, you won’t.
If you put in that bit extra which costs you someway, you will.

How are you being around your life, right now?

We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win …”   ~ John F Kenedy 35th President of the United States of America

Random Acts of Self Kindness for Kids

Today was a return visit to supply teach a lovely and lively Year 6 class.

On the wall, I noticed a poster their teacher had created for Kindness Awards. We talked about the kind things they had done for others.

I asked them what they had also done to be kind to themselves so far today. This is what they came up with:Be Kind To Yourself (2)

  • Had a drink
  • Started with a healthy breakfast
  • Smiled at themselves in the mirror
  • Yawned!
  • Spoken  a kind word to themselves
  • Exercised

We talked about how looking after ourselves by being kind to our mind, body and heart would put us in a great space to also be kind to others.

What have you done to be kind to you today?
