Experience the world around you

As we go through our day to day lives, our world becomes smaller, centering on where we spend most of our time.

We can easily forget about the wider world. How beautiful it is, how blessed we are to be able to experience it's many wonders.

We should make an effort to regularly re-connect with this wonderous world.

Simply taking a walk in a local park, visiting the beach, going to explore local woodland.

All of these things will help us to see the beauty around us, give us a boost, a break from normality and the four walls which border our daily lives.

So use your spare time to get out and see the world around you.

Step away from your screens, your sofa, your workstation, your daily routine.

Bask in it's beauty, it's majesty. See the bigger picture and enjoy the world.

Learning from mistakes

We all make mistakes, we all fail at some point. Our lives will often throw us lemons. Such is the nature of things

It is what we do, how we react when this happens that is the important thing.

Next time that we encounter the same situation, we can think back to what happened last time, work out what we did wrong and try again with the knowledge that we have gained from these past mistakes and trials.

We should learn to look on failures, mistakes and trials as a positive thing, a learning experience.

For by learning and improving, we not only have a better chance of succeeding the next time, but we also learn more about ourselves and our strengths and weaknesses.

So instead of becoming disheartened and down, look upon these situations as a chance to move forward to the success that you deserve.

Christmas is coming

Christmas is near,
It's coming next week,
The presents need wrapping
Best to do it,
When the children are napping!

The fridge it is full,
With meat and with cheese,
Getting it in,
Was quite a tough squeeze!

The tree's in the loft,
Up I will climb,
To sneeze and to snort,
With the dust and the grime!

But give me a week,
And all will be done,
Then we will start,
With games and with fun.

When the presents they rip,
The children will grin,
Eager to play,
With the goodies within!

The lunch will be fab,
Even down to the sprouts,
And that last slice of turkey,
Daddy will grab!

We will all settle down,
After the food is all gone,
And the washing up is done,
Oh wow, there was a ton!

To board games and fun,
Giggles and smiles,
Spending time with each other,
Is better by miles,

Than going to work,
All that toil and grind.
I'm so glad that for a while,
We've left it behind.

The sun has gone down,
It's getting quite dark,
But this Christmas day,
Has been such a lark!
