Rising from the Falls of Life

Written by Josie Thomson on May 18, 2017

Just in this past two weeks I have known tragedy and loss, fraud and disappointment, shame and isolation, depression and despair, aloneness and regret, pain and defeat, sadness and grief. In spite of and despite all this, I have also known kindness and generosity of spirit, compassion and humility, love and care, encouragement and hope. 

Life is a rich and complex tapestry of experiences. It’s not about how hard or how many times we fall, it’s about how we rise and

Change your thoughts and your life

Written by Josie Thomson on October 25, 2016

Shadows?

Some of our biggest problems often only exist in our head.

The primary cause of our unhappiness and sense of ‘defeat’ is never the current situation but our thoughts about it.

 

Happiness and success really comes down to two elements: the way we think and the way we act based upon our thoughts.

We become really quite remarkable when we start thinking that we can do great things, right now, without the need for anything more.

Thrive and Shine

Written by Josie Thomson on October 25, 2016

If we want to thrive in life, we need to take a good hard look in the mirror and then take small, consistent steps to self-correct if necessary.

You can spend your time doing

Resilience: Let go and live life to the full

Written by Josie Thomson on October 25, 2016

One of the most rewarding and important moments in life is the moment you finally find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.

When we let go of how life ‘should’ be, we ignite the full potential of how life CAN be from this moment forward.

Happiness is ultimately about letting go of what we think our life is supposed to be like right now and sincerely appreciating it for everything that it is, and making the very best

What are we missing out on when we rush?

Written by Josie Thomson on June 20, 2016

There seems to be one speed with which the world is operating: RUSH. “Rush hour’ has become our way of life. We rush our food. We rush our conversations. We rush our leisure. We rush our intimacy. We rush our fitness. We rush our driving. We rush our work. We rush our time out. We even rush our rest. WTF?!

What effect is Rushing having on you?

I’m am especially reminded of this as deadlines approach like holiday time or the end

You’re more resilient than you think

Written by Josie Thomson on May 26, 2016

Over the weekend a friend sent me a link to Delta Goodrem’s new song ‘Dear Life’ – if you haven’t listened to you it, I recommend it to you. She said it reminded her of me. To me it’s like an open letter to life, reflecting on the path and reminding us that there are deeper truths and lessons to our experiences.

Recovering from cranial surgery.

It opens with ‘life will change you….to find what’s real.’ Isn’t that what

The 7 Keys to Your Happiness and Success

Written by admin on April 2, 2016

I’ve often wondered what the distinction between happiness and success really is. I recall a few years back I was interviewed for Cosmo magazine on this very topic. The insight for me, and what I’ve grown to appreciate is that happiness is an INside job – success is what we do in our ‘outer’ world.
