Summertime and the living is easy

Recently the sun has been teasing us, lurking behind the dark clouds, not showing it’s warmth or brightness. The unpredictable Irish weather – is it really here? Summertime.

And maybe, just maybe, there is a little metaphor here for you. When you lurk behind dark clouds of negative thinking, you no longer shine. It’s important to interrupt that pattern of negative thinking often so you can begin to feel better faster.

Begin to look for the positives within you, the good mind behind the face, the intelligent, the determination, the kindness, the you that sometimes gets lost trying to fit in. Wouldn’t be it wonderful to let the real you shine?

  • Stop worrying about what others think.
  • Begin to believe in yourself.
  • Act on your ideas, talents and skills.
  • Re-educate yourself if you have to.
  • Stop doubting yourself – give that the boot!
  • Be kinder and more loving to yourself.
  • Establish a voice inside your head that insists on saying good things about you.

If the sun doubted whether it would shine, we might never experience these beautiful days. Bring out the sunshine that’s in there in you – let it shine – be you – think big why not shoot for the stars and rise above the dark clouds.

Have a great summer.

 

Spring clean your head

Spring is in the air - time to spring clean your mind

And so, spring time is just around the corner. You can see the yellow burst of daffodils about. The sun is shining more.The evenings are longer and brighter.Early morning you can hear the sound of young birds about.There is a sense of newness and growth – spring time.

As you look at your garden, there may be a few weeds there.You might be thinking “I need to tackle them” but what about your head?  What do you need to cut back on? Now I don’t know if it’s negative thinking that’s a problem, but wouldn’t it be great to begin to stop that old way of thinking. Almost as if you are pruning those old worn out thoughts.

Imagine nurturing good, more useful thoughts about yourself. The trick like gardening is you have to keep working at it even when you don’t want to. It’s like planting new seeds in the garden and watching them blossom and grow and see the beauty unfold.

Your mind is a storehouse of all you have ever seen, heard, read, sensed, smelt, tasted.In reality, you know much more than you think you do. Stop comparing yourself to others. Flip the negative thoughts, remember you are setting up patterns in your head.

As spring time approaches, perhaps its time to cut back on all that over growth of negative thinking, start to prune each thought so that it works better for you. Nourish it with self-belief. Feed it with persistence.Throw out the rubbish so you can see things differently and feel better faster.It’s worth listening to good more useful thoughts about yourself inside your head.

And as you sow new seeds of opportunity and growth, your whole life will expand and blossom.You will begin to see things differently, in a whole new light.

And so, it is nearly Christmas. And soon, very soon, people will be making goals for the New Year but what about this year? This is a great time of the year to reflect on what you have already achieved. I remember reading that this is something Richard Branson does each year. He makes a list of all the things he has achieved in a year.  Now this does two things.It fires off all those neural pathways in your brain while you remember what you achieved. You begin to feel better about what you have actually achieved.

Maybe you went to a course, perhaps you ran a marathon, or that project you always wanted to do got done. If you have a diary, you could flick through it and see what you did during this year. See what had the most positive impact on you.  You might start thinking “I’ve done nothing”. I bet you have done much more than you think you have. Celebrating your achievements are just as important as aiming for new ones.

Perhaps you don’t really realize the way you impact on your family.  Maybe you read stories at night time to your children, or found a way to get through a challenging time. What you have achieved is worth celebrating. To others it may not be meaningful, but to you it is. And you can build on that and build on that.  You could list them all off, what you have achieved because we forget so easily our successes. So begin to remember them, and celebrate all the successes and accomplishments you have already achieved and build on that.
