“Trials in life help us to grow by making us not only better persons than we were before but by making us stronger. The challenge to become a better version of yourself  is not dwelling too long on your trials but rather, Focusing the good that lies ahead”                    ~ Etta D. Richards

I grew up hearing my grandparents and many in their age group speaking about Hurrican Besty,  for them it was one of the worse hurricanes to have passed through the Bahamas during the 60s. They would speak about palm trees being snapped in half, massive flooding resulting in people being trapped in their homes for days. Here in Scotland they speak about Snowstorms and flooding, a few years ago I experienced one of those snowstorms and yes it was pretty bad, it snowed for what felt like forever, schools, businesses were forced to shut. But then it stopped snowing. In all that we’ve experienced many of us have persevered, we made it through because everything comes to an end and in the aftermath, we always look back on the storms, the floods with gratitude that we made it through.

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.”
~Tony Schwartz

Taming The Wandering Mind — March 20, 2020

Taming The Wandering Mind

Taming-the-wandering-mind

Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.”
~Anthon St. Maarten

The mind is one of our greatest assets. It’s a wonderful thing and it’s also a wandering thing. Unchecked it can wander off into blissful oblivion for hours on end, it happens to the best of us. There’s nothing at all wrong with a wandering mind as long you learn to tame that wandering mind and able to make that U-turn back to reality. Just the other day I wandered off to my grandmother’s kitchen, the smell of fresh bread and caramelized sugar permeated the room so profusely I could taste those cinnamon buns.  Then I had to snap out of it. Reality was knowing at the door.
