Social media senario 

Hi guys 

I know it’s been a while since I last posted, as I’ve been struck down with a bug. We all need time every now and then to recharge and get well, well this was my time. 

As days progress I think about my life as a child, what I did for entertainment, how we played and what resources we had, and then it dawned on me, that we didn’t have all this social media. We had toys and imagination.  Something I find is missing in a 21st century child. I myself have had enough of social media, the endless scrolling through nothing and repeated posts, the addiction to picking up your phone or tablet, for me this has to change .

 Now I understand word press can be categorised into maybe a small proportion of social media, I feel it’s more of an outlet. Anyway my point. …

I’ve taken a break from social media

I said it out loud and I love it. 

Every day I spend time on mainly facebook, I wake up and I check to see what’s been happening through the night, the answer ……..is nothing. 

I checked to see if my friends had posted. ……..another subliminal insult.

I look and see, the constant reassurance and constant digs of ‘I’m better than you’. 

Now I get told not to let it affect me, but the reality is that it does. I have no idea why, nor do I wish to delve into the reasons for that, but I just can’t keep being held prisoner to the social media platform …..

Today I am free. 

Have a blessed evening

Living in the moment 

I’ve spent a lot of time studying the way children play. They amaze me how they are able to live in the moment. I watch the way my children play, interact and not have a thought about anything else but that moment, now! 

I had a discussion the other day about how I would have done things differently when I was a child. How a bit of snow made the energy change, to pure excitement and happiness.  How the field being open to play football was the highlight. How we enjoyed that moment.

It made us think that as children we would have cherished the moments more, enjoyed life a bit differently, but then it crossed my mind, that if we thought like that then we wouldnt be living in the moment we would be thinking about what we could do differently and change.  

This for me is a huge lesson in the way that we acted that way as a child because we were living in the moment at that time, embracing life as it is. 

Tomorrow I’m going to be more embracing, enjoying the sunshine, not thinking about tomorrow.

Just be in the moment 

Just being !

All in a days work

Hi positive people 

I do hope you’ve all had a wonderful week so far.  

Mindfulness is on the rise and more people are adapting a mindful attitude, I have tried really hard this week to ensure my attitude remains positive and mindful. 

This proves difficult sometimes when the constraints of daily life play their part. Remind yourself that it’s ok to have bad days, you don’t have to be Mindful all the time. Give yourself a break.  I ask myself 

How am I feeling ?

I’ve said this before about how we forget to ask ourselves how were feeling. Now is the time ! 

I am tired

I am frustrated 

I am unusually calm 

A few emotions that I am feeling, yes I’m tired and yes I’m frustrated but also unusually calm. This helps me establish that although I feel this way, I am still calm.  It’s a useful tool to work with, and once your in tune with your emotions your able to recognise the way forward. 

Live for now, not what may be 🙂
