Day 5: Mindfulness (Part 2)

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (32734)
An excellent way to help take control of your emotions and mental state of being is to practise Mindfulness. Mindfulness is the art of paying attention. Being mindful means switching from 'doing' mode to 'being' mode and having the courage to monotask rather than struggling to complete multiple jobs. It means being aware of each stage of the journey rather than racing at full pelt towards the finish line. It means adopting a beginner's mind and appreciating each moment as it comes. To be mindf...

Day 5: Mindfulness (Part 1)

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 3:30 AM Comments comments (6937)
For my final day of #5DaysOfGratitude, I thought appropriate to leave this particular subject till last. The art of Mindfulness is something that I recently took up towards the end of last year and since then, my life has suddenly turned around and everything is brighter. Sometimes life is not easy. Sometimes there are moments when you just don't want to get out of bed in the morning so that you don't have to deal with life. These days are unavoidable. When you look at those who possess such a... Read Full Post »

Day 4: The Ability to Travel (Part 2)

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 3:30 AM Comments comments (28079)
I have been ever so blessed in my life to have already at 21 years of age, travelled quite a bit. I have explored many different places across Australia: from the Snowy Mountains, to the lush rainforests all across SE Queensland, to the breathtaking beaches and sunsets over in WA. I am ever so lucky to have travelled overseas quite a number of times. I have visited most of Western Europe; some areas within the UK, Denmark & Czech Republic; I have briefly explored Singapore; spent time cruising a... Read Full Post »

Day 4: The Ability to Travel (Part 1)

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 3:15 AM Comments comments (23825)
Danish author Hans Christian Andersen once said, "To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the lands of land remote, to travel is to live." Our lives are constantly on the move. The days can become so chaotic at times that suddenly everything seems to blur together into one endless stream of never-ending tasks and demands. Before too long, we will awake from this drama and come to see that weeks - or even months - have flown by. It is often in these moments o... Read Full Post »

Day 3: The Gifts I Have Been Blessed With

In his teachings, Buddha proclaimed "Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it." Too often, people assume that the key to being successful in life is to land that top paying job with a big company that can provide you with the lifestyle that you have always dreamed of. For some people, this is what drives them and their values are aligned with this - we cannot begin to judge those if that is what aligns with who they are. However, it is most often the ...

Day 2: My Friends

Friendship. Where would we be and how could we possibly survive if we didn't have friendship in our lives. The friends that you have in your life are as important to you as the family members that you love. The everlasting bonds that are formed within friendships never cease to amaze me. Throughout life, you come to meet a wide variety of people. Some may only be in your life for fleeting moments, whilst others may stick around for a while and become a good companion. Though, there are those ... Read Full Post »

Day 1: My Family

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (6788)
To start off my #5DaysOfGratitude, I thought it would be best to start off with one of the most important things in my life: My Family. I am ever so grateful to be blessed with the most beautiful, amazing & supportive family. Life has not always been easy for me and with the career that I have undertaken, it is by far not the easiest road to take. Yet, through it all, my family has always been there for me and supported every decision that I make. They constantly help me everyday to achiev... Read Full Post »
