UnResolutions for 2014!

unresolutions2014Let’s face it everyone does them! Few complete them.

Why do we make them? We should be doing them if they are important enough.

What does it say about us when we sit down once a year and make them. That we quickly forget them.

How important are they when we have to remind ourselves that we need to do them!

Let’s all agree not to bother and simply do what we should always do.

Be good, be kind and be human.

So if I asked you in 3 years time…

blankbookWhat would have to have changed in your life both personally and professionally for you to be happy with your progress?

Just been reading a great book written by Dan Sullivan it’s called the “ The Dan Sullivan Question”.

Now many of us might well have been asking these questions in our own way but it’s a great reminder that follow up and understanding the constraints and more:


What would you say? Could you answer the question?

How truthful could you be and how much courage would it take to get to the answer?

Sullivan mentions His D.O.S. principles – Dangers, Opportunities and Strengths

It reminds me of many conversations I have about courage and character and how much of those two do you have?

It’s a great read but more than that it will make you think or NOT and that is the first step you have to take!


Take what you learned in life


Use the talent you were given to develop the talent in others

Do something that inspires those around you

Tell stories that develop children into wonderful people

Teach others that faith conquers fear

Use the wisdom you have to build energy in everything you do

Use the skills you have to build communities

Know that the love you share fills the hearts of others

Share knowledge to develop goodness

Use your heart and mind to assume innocence

Use what you have learned all of your life to nurture and care the life you have left


Know that your life is blessed when you do something for those less advantaged





Seven Thoughts for 2012

It’s that time of year again. This year, let’s do something different. Let’s do something really meaningful!

Family – family comes first!

There are many things in our life that cannot be replaced; one is family, so take care of the ones you have.  They are the most precious things in your life! They can never be replaced.

Career – some take it serious, some just show up! Make the right choice!

Your career is your wellbeing, it is who you are.  Ask those who lose their job, ask them how they feel! You can climb the corporate ladder or stay in a dead end position.  Retire on the job or turn it into a dream opportunity.

You are the owner of your career, it is your decision to make the best or the worst of it.  So go on make your “day.” And do something that will change the rest of life.

Finances – Get it under control!

The economy is not looking very positive, but not as bad as the news portrays it to be (for most.)  So, don’t wait until you are in that dark hole before you start digging your way out.

Ask the question, is it a want or a need, can I live without it?  Start paying off old debt and quit trying to keep up with the Jones!

Volunteerism – good for the soul!

Everyone should take a turn at volunteerism.  It reminds us quickly how fortunate we are.  All businesses should have programs to encourage employees to work as volunteers.

It should be listed under:  personal development and employee benefits, because of the sense of pride and satisfaction they will earn.

It builds leadership for our younger generation, who in turn will be more apt to get involved in their communities and the work of non-profit agencies. Business also will benefit from the role in society, as will society. A win-win for everyone!

Contributions – hands are out!

It is time to choose from the many non-profit organizations that seek your money. Choose your donation percentage and fund your passion.

You cannot do it all!  Take a percentage of your income that will be donated, and stick to it.  If you cannot give money, give time! You will find it fun and rewarding and will make friends along the way.

Best Friends – are the best!

Best friends are what keep us going.  They are the ones we vent to, cry with and dream with. Conversations that are never repeated. They give us hugs when needed, they remind us tomorrow is a new day.

Best thoughts – Remember to check in on these thoughts every day!

Happy New Year! It is yours to achieve what you desire.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
