Think Before I Speak

Do you think before you speak? I know I sure don’t! Which is something I can:

a) openly admit 

b) share that I am working on this

It is hard for us to filter between what our mind thinks & what comes out of our mouths.

Before saying something to someone, always think about how you’d feel if someone told you the same thing?

Below is a great strategy to go through in your head whenever you have thoughts or even just something to say in general?

T = Is what I am saying true?

H = Is what I am saying helpful?

I = Is what I am saying inspiring?

N = Is what I am saying necessary?

K = Is what I am saying kind?

^ Thinking the above will really help filter whether or not what you have to say is relevant or irrelevant.

Take into consideration the other persons feelings & not just your own.

Below is a little something to remind yourself that when you keep your mindset positive, positive things can happen:

Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.

Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviour.

Keep your behaviour positive, because your behaviour becomes your habits.

Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.

Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.

Switching The Mind Off

Today was a different day, today was a day of switching off all the noise in my head & making some big decisions in my life.

Switching off all this noise today was so peaceful & quiet, my mind is constantly running at 28365 kilometres an hour – so this most certainly benefited me.

The thought of switching off scares me though, I have to be alert & aware at all times.

I packed a bag & set off for the day to La Perouse National Park, (located in Sydney, Australia for those that don’t know where it is), it is amazing there, sat by the cliff side ate my muesli bar & grapes I than set off for a nice long walk, this walk was not only a walk but a walk filled w/ thoughts, decision making etc – best walk of my life.

When I reached my next destination, this was the ‘switching off’ time – I sat & meditated for a while, I let out all the negative thoughts that are poisoning me.

Realising that I don’t need to be in control 24/7 & that it is okay to go with the flow in life & to not question everything is happening around me & everyone around me.

Realising that if I was less stressed in life, my thought pattern would be VERY different!

Today, I enjoyed my own company, I enjoyed spending time outdoors alone, thinking, & also switching off for once in my life.

Below are some of the photos from my walk, I want to share – the silence was amazing.


100th Blog Post & Big News To Share!

My blogs have finally reached a 3-digit number! I cannot believe it!

100 blogs in just under a year & to think that I even took a fair few months off at the start of this blog journey due to doubting myself, thinking my blog wasn’t good enough etc.

I am enjoying this, I really am!

I enjoy sharing my journey w/ you all, whether that would be recipes, travel or even just my daily blogs.

I cannot believe how many views that my blog are getting, it truly warms my heart at the amount of support I have from people I don’t even know, I thank each & every one of you.

Thank you all, your support & nice comments do not go unnoticed.

BIG NEWS!

So, I have some great news that I would love to share with you all.

I have decided to remove the ‘wordpress’ from my URL 

I think it’s time for the word ‘wordpress’ to be removed. Discovering Your Happiness has come such a long way & I think as a ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY present to my blog is to remove the wordpress name from my URL.

^ I am so excited to be sharing this big news with you all.

I am so grateful for how far I have come & how far my blog has come. *pats self on the back*

We are so quick to criticise ourselves, which is extremely unhealthy for us both physically & mentally however we never quick to pat ourselves on the back & praise ourselves.

So here I am patting myself on the back for all my hard work & consistency… Look where I am now.

I thank God for all this #blessed

 

Blog Share #1

This particular website leaves me speechless – I still cannot believe everything that has happened over the past year on this WordPress journey. I have increased in views, visitors, blog posts, comments – It’s just amazing that you amazing people take the time to read my posts & comment such nice things.

I got a weird notification this morning though – a notification that I had never seen before, it was that someone had linked something from my page:

123456

I was confused bc I didnt know what was linked… HOWEVER, I clicked on the post to see Susan from Running To Zen: https://runningtozen.org/ had shared my blog & done an activity that I had recommended for wanting to become a positive thinker.

Blog found at: https://runningtozen.org/2017/04/23/sunday-blog-share-how-to-be-a-positive-thinker/comment-page-1/#comment-454

I am astounded that Susan took the time to read that very long blog, complete the activity on her own blog & even reflect on her day.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Susan 🙂

This is a very big deal to me, for someone to re-post something that I have wrote & to also acknowledge my blogging site is absolutely amazing,

To think where I was & where I am now w/ my blog is so motivating!

Discovering Your Happiness’ ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY is coming up on 7 days, so this is very exciting!
