"What can I tell you .. It's very difficult .." Said Ruth (factious). "I know I need a change", she continued in her troubled voice, "but somehow I can not bring myself to do anything about it."

In my line of work as a life coach, I often come across similar cases as to that of Ruth. She is not alone ...

There are many women, who "wake up" one day and decide "that's it, enough already!"

They've kept themselves busy all day long with matters concerning the family and the household, and suddenly realize they do not even know who they really are, and what they want out of life beyond the family nest.

It's not that caring for themselves, does not matter, but it's just that it wasn't exactly "staring" in their list of priorities.

Most of their time and energy is invested in taking care of their families; they then reach a point, which usually comes after the children have grown, that it's no longer enough; They feel that they want more out of life.

The conflict arises thereafter: on one hand, they say, "the time has come for me to realize myself, I fulfilled my "civic duty" .. And on the other hand, they do not want to feel guilt and shame as they assert confidently, "it's my time now."

What many do not realize, is that it does not have to be one or the other, they can have both; The name of the game is balance!

Naturally, God willing, our children reach adolescents and "everyone turns to their business", isn't that so?

In order to avoid a situation in which we women feel emptiness, uselessness, we should continue doing, and it doesn't necessarily mean that it has to be family related. 

It's ok if it's just us! Because bottom line when we're ok, or better, everyone around us benefits, isn't that so? 

We all want to realize our wants and needs; To feel fulfilled. It's ok if being a parent isn't enough any more. 

Actually, it's completely natural. It's called being a part of the constant flow - the different phases in life - we change as we go. 

Enough talking, what can you put into actuality right now? 

But before we begin, firstly, we must possess an inner knowing that it's never too late!

Take yourself on a date! No one deserves this more than you do! 

1) Ask yourself; What is important to me? What do I still want to achieve in life? What do I value most other than loving and caring for family and loved ones? 

What else is out there for me to still do? What am I good at? What are my best attributes? What dreams do I want to bring into actuality? What gift can I bring to the world that will have an impact beyond my personal benefit? 

2) Learn to manage your time effectively: Be clear about what you need to accomplish each day. That is, if you value progress, moving forward. 

3) Make a list of what you do on a daily basis, and how much time you spend doing it. You may find that you spend valuable time on things that otherwise would contribute to your progress. 

4) Create a realistic action plan, one that will not interfere with your daily duties.

5) Time for action; Take a course, apply to a university, send out resume, create a business, and so on.

No one wants to reach their  "golden years", feeling like they have missed out on life; Do yourself a favor and for once, take care of YOU!

I got up this morning and decided to be happy! why you ask? All it takes is a mere decision!

A wise man once said, "Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The true meaning of happiness does not depend on the quantity of material assets accumulated over a lifetime. why?

Because in the end, we all reach the "last station'', just as we came into the world, stark naked.

When was the last time you asked yourself, what has to happen in order for me to be happy? What conditions need to be met in order to feel satisfied?

What is stopping me from being able to feel happy right now?

The truth is that happiness is not dependent on any situation or external circumstance; But rather, a choice we have to do every day, no matter what is happening around us.

Happiness and joy are emotions we must create within us; from a place of self-love and self-worth, gratitude for possessing precious opportunity - the GIFT of LIFE!

Happiness comes when we experience the feeling of love and are able to unselfishly share it with others.

Love and happiness are not something we can buy in the local supermarket or the Internet; Rather, we create these feelings in ourselves, when we realize what is really important in life.

What good is a fancy car parked outside of your home, if there is no one sitting next to you on the passenger side?

What value does money and property or a seaside villa, if at the end of the day, we go to bed alone?

It requires a change in consciousness; Only then can our hearts be opened to the truth.

We are happy when we realize that the greatest joy is when we have someone to share our life experiences with; By virtue of their presence in our lives.

Happiness is experienced in maintaining healthy and loving relationships with those we love and appreciate; not taking anything for granted!

The rest is just a poor imitation of the real thing!

People come in and out of our lives, situations change in an instant, but happiness is a choice we can make right here and NOW!

If you believe there is a Devine being, a Creator to the world we live in; a force running things behind the scenes, then you must also believe that things don't just happen for no reason.

Although we cannot see it or be completely aware of it, there is an everlasting flow going on around us which we often refer to as Life. 

At times we feel as if this force is pulling us in one direction, and other times towards the opposite route. It may seem as if we are puppets on wires, unable to control our destiny.

What if we wholeheartedly believed that the path which we travel on is subjected to the choices we make in life? 

Would we then have enough courage to once and for all, cut the strings and begin constructing the life we truly want to live? 

This force, God, only wants the highest and best good for us. How can we be sure of that? 

All we have to do is open our eyes widely and take in the magnificence existing all around us. 

There's an abundance of "raw materials" which is offered to us freely - information and tools we can use to our own advantage and progression in life. 

We did not arrive to this world to have things handed to us, we must earn our happiness and success, or else what's the purpose? How would we gain a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment?

Because we are part of this force, an energy which has breathed life into everything we're aware of, we too possess the ability to create.  

If you have faith in God, then you must also have faith in yourself. 

Let go of all your hardship and move on. 

Know that your fate is in your hands, God believes in you, and so should you!

Sometimes, when we go through difficult times in life, we feel like we've just landed in a bottomless pit.

People we count on disappoint us and things happen that we do not expect or foresee. Then we begin to doubt our abilities; Maybe I did not act right ... I could have done things differently .. Maybe I'm not good enough, it's because I'm not talented enough ...

We experience moments of happiness and success, as well as periods of darkness and despair. It is so easy to fall into hopelessness when it seems as though the walls are closing in on us.

It is difficult for us to remember, especially when we go through any hardship, that we should never give up! Instead, we must do our best to keep in mind that everything always happens for a reason!

Perhaps it is a golden opportunity for us to change our reality for the better? Even though it may seem as if the world has come to an end, maybe it's for our benefit, although just too difficult to notice at the moment. 

What if it's a new beginning being served to us on a silver platter for our betterment?

Everything depends on our perception. 

What we perceive to be true, is true, at least in our minds; The way in which we interpret our reality. Once we hold on to a certain belief it is very difficult to change it.

Unless, we entertain an alternative; If we do not consider changing our thought process, we will remain stuck in it - our thoughts become ingrained in us. 

Consider the following; Thoughts are just thoughts - Like a bird flying by - we are not forced to keep them alive in our minds. 

Next time you find yourself in turmoil, stop for a moment and ask yourself; Is this as bad as I think it is or am I seeing this worse than it actually is? 

What if the only thing I need right now, is to change my point of view?

You know that feeling, when you are tired, and all you want to do is just drop everything and say; "That's it, I cannot do this anymore, I'm done"? 

We have all most likely experienced this feeling at some point.

Whether it's work related, a relationship that's being held by a "thin thread", or anything else.

If you feel as I do, that things do not just appear randomly in our lives, but, rather there's a reason for everything that happens, consider the following.

We may not be quite fully aware of it, but there's a method and strategy to every action we take in life. 

Perhaps all we need to do, is change our strategy and act differently ...

Sometimes, all we need to take is a step back, and do our best to let go of the emotional attachment in order to see things from a different angle.

Ask yourself: If a good friend turned to me for help to solve this, what would I suggest for her to do?

When we remove the emotional component, we may discover that we are able to see things more clearly. 

Do your best to understand the reason behind what you are trying to achieve; What is the result your hoping for. 

Then you will be equipped with a more expanded understanding of things, which in turn will enable you to cope more effectively, instead of feeling overwhelmed or distraught. 

Remember that where there is a problem, there is always a solution.

Behind every cloud there is a ray of sunshine waiting to be revealed ⛅️ Never lose hope for a better tomorrow!

Wishing you a day full of sunshine, thank you.

Love & Blessings,
Yours ❤️

When we plan, set goals for ourselves, and begin working toward putting them into practice, we know where we're headed.

Something within us awakens to life, suddenly we have lots of energy, and off we go, as if we were human bulldozers. 

How does this happen? Actually, we were born with a built-in quest to want. We have a deep desire to create, achieve, win and succeed. 

All because we want to bring our vision (anything  that does not currently exist in our lives) into reality.

This is what connects us to the source of life, to the inexhaustible capabilities existing within us and to the abundance at our disposal at any given moment.

The problem is, when we have a setback or an obstacle, the pressure begins to affect us, and our faith can be impaired.

However, the truth is that having some stress, actually works for us, not against us, as we may often think.

When do we best express our abilities? Invariably, it is when we are under pressure. It's what drives us forward and motivates us into action.

What inspires the feeling of success within? When we are not resting on our laurels, but continue to move forward, even if it's only one small step. 

Progress must be constant. When we reach our destination, we must not go into an intermission ...

We did not come here to rest, there will be plenty of time for that when we're gone. 

We say "Voyage of Life .." Because the essence of life is prolonged walking, not so simple, at times between mountains and valleys ...

But however, taking action is in and of itself what heals and breathes life into us. 

Change should be permanent; Constantly reinventing ourselves.

As long as we press on and continue to enjoy the view on the way, that would be a good enough reason to get up in the morning and pave a path of light for ourselves.

We must create a reality in words and deeds, then be committed to them. 

Intention, Speech and Action - when we assume control over these three, believe in ourselves with the right intention, we can be the ones that control our lives.

The road to self-change, is a never-ending track. 

It is a process that requires courage, a conscious effort, and a sincere desire to improve, in order to be successful.

Thinking about the past is not conducive to our efforts to becoming more imaginative, creative or innovative in any way. 

Why? Because we cling to negative images, words and sounds that keep disrupting the peace within us.

How can we possibly be doing good for ourselves?

We are not! This is what keeps us stuck: Recycling a negative  period that no longer exists.

We should learn from the past; Use it as a tool to have a better future and not dwell on it.

We miss so much on the way ... why not invest this energy on being present in the moment? To live in the here and now?

Why watch a rerun, when you can create a blockbuster ??

Something to think about ...

Wishing you a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to read 😃
