"This is a story that I once heard that has stuck with me and encourages me during difficult times. It goes like this:
In one of my previous posts, To Love is to be Alert, I outlined the importance of being alert. It teaches us to see what is really out there that there are plenty of good things inside others and us. As you practices being alert take some time be alert not just in nature as your out for a walk but also in all aspects of your life, especially your relationships.

So… you want a good nights sleep? I am seeing a lot of people complaining about not getting enough sleep or not waking up rested on many social media posts. This is bad because it affects our overall mood/ mental health and it can even result in physical illness. What you may not realize about an ongoing lack of sleep is it can lead to things like depression and or anxiety; it can wreak havoc on our relationships (learned by personal experience) and give us a poor work ethic at our jobs.
How often do you get to work or university and not remember any part of the journey? How alert are you when you go for walks in?
My good friend and energy healer, Clayton told me to go for walks in nature more often. I originally just thought, “alright, that’s simple enough, I can do that!” What’s mind blowing is what it does to you.

So, you want to change your self? You want to conquer depression, you want to get rid of your bad habits, or… you just want to change whatever it is about yourself to become the you; The "You" that want to be.
Becoming the "you" that you want to be seems quite simple but like our gratitude challenge can be challenging at times. In this post I will explain a bit on how our brain works to help build an understanding of our exercises and how you can put this knowledge to work to greatly benefit yourself and to start the change you so desire today.
Oh great another challenge. Life’s pretty challenging as is, I get it, and we have stresses of our jobs, relationships, putting up with our in-laws, etcetera. What if I told you that this challenge was a bit different, what if it’s a challenge to reduce all that stress, improve your health, relationships, jobs and more! What if this challenge changes life for the better?
The first step to happiness is knowing what you have in life and what you can be grateful for. It's sometimes harder than you think to count your blessings but.. start small. Today I am grateful for my warm bed that I sleep in every night.
I have found that so often we are depressed about the things going on in life and so we get into this rut of negativity that seems like we can never give out! Choosing to love is the greatest power of all. If it wasn't for love you wouldn't be here, the thing you love and enjoy wouldn't be here, the very device that you are reading this on wouldn't be here because it is love that creates everything around us. If it wasn't for love the Earth would be a barren waste land.
