A moment can last forever if it’s experienced with the whole of your being, but at the same time it may take years to realise that you have spent your time in the worst way.I believe the best use I can make of my time is to be in the present, to focus on what I’m doing right now and appreciate this very moment. And hopefully, make that moment last forever. 💙
Wow this pic took me back. There’s a lot of exciting things coming up this year. I’m looking forward to the launch of the Young Women’s Network and working with amazing females that inspire each other and who aspire not to have more but to be more. I do truly believe that saying ‘what you go through grows you’. You can use all your experiences, the ups and the downs and even the times you wanted to give up and turn them into something good. We all have something the world needs. As Mandela said ‘May your choices reflect your hopes not your fears’. We are the creators of our story and you can rewrite it however many times you want. Share your magic. #goingfortheworld #livethislife #yolo #passion #nofear #hope #love #ghana #memories #london #womenentrepreneurs #youngwomensnetwork #goingfortheworld #lovealreadywon ❤️➕🙅🏻
“l – keep looking around me – only much more so – observing – but not only myself but others and everything – take things for what they are worth…” Monroe’s Diary 1955. I’m not one for resolutions but I’m looking forward to this New Year ahead of me. 2015 was a roller coaster of a ride, friendship, heartache, loss, unexpected encounters and celebrations. Life is a journey and we have the power to make it at as amazing as we want. Life can be tough but it’s how we face each challenge and use it that matters. We don’t always have to judge something as to whether it’s good or bad, sometimes ‘it is just what it is’. This year is going to be an amazing adventure with so many new opportunities up for the taking. #goingfortheworld #lovealreadywon ❤️➕
What mindset do you hold? What are your daily affirmations?
Before the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking became ill, he described his life as a ‘pointless existence’. He drank far too much and did very little in terms of work. It was after he discovered that he may only have a few years to live, that his outlook on life suddenly took on an urgency and a new meaning. In fact he was actually happier than he had ever been. He explained the paradox this way: ‘When one’s expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates everything that one does have.’ When you’re told that you only have a limited time left to live, it transforms your whole perspective on living. Things you overlook suddenly become meaningful: the laughter of children, a sunrise or sunset, the love of friends and family, or just a walk in the park. The most miserable people in the world are those who believe that life ‘owes them’. They’re never happy, because they never believe they get what they deserve’. So what was he saying? This: Instead of competing, comparing, and complaining, focus on the good things, enjoy them and develop an attitude of gratitude.
Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life… ❤️➕
I don’t know about you but I’m not one for making resolutions, but I am wanting to do more. I’m gearing myself up for some exciting adventures in 2016 and beyond. This quote from Anne Lamott an inspirational woman hit home.
“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and younever got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart.
Don’t let this happen.”
