Take a few minutes to reflect this Christmas and New year…. make it meaningful

Hi Folks,

There were just too many thoughts flying around my head this morning to share with you all, so I did the quickest thing and got them down in a video. I am not a fan of the old here I am look at me 🙂 and the video clearly agreed with a cut off after a few minutes!!

So here is a short video message from me reflecting on Christmas and goal setting for the New Year followed by a mash-up on voice recording to complete the message.

Please do take the time to ponder what Christmas means for you, how to be present in all the chaos, and take time to be mindful of your New Years goals.

Please enjoy and add comments about your own goals and desires. Lets make them happen in 2016….

There are no prizes for counting the number of “so’s” and “you know’s” haha!

Please enjoy the very random photos that I had to select to get this recording online. The last approximately 20 shots are taken locally from the University of Limerick, St Mary’s Cathedral, and local Limerick in 2010 when we had our big freeze. This is the effect of freezing fog and not snow; there was no snow and isn’t it incredible! And the final few are taken from Keeper Hill back in 2004 (oh gosh).

Be brave and add feedback and if you like some of your goals… no better time to start having a think and sending the message out to the universe that you mean business!

And enjoy this wonderful art by Josephine Wall; take a moment to see all that is in the image

PS In my self consciousness I omitted what to me is perhaps a significant reason for my goals and aiming to grow all that I am, and that is for all I can be and give in my relationships. Most importantly in my relationship with my boy :-). I spend a lot of time reflecting on my relationships with others and myself and what true connection means. It would be remiss of me to not add this here because for me my relationships and connection to other people give the meaning to everything that I strive for in my life, work and profession. Relationships and connection are the purpose for my passion and desires to become my most loving, giving, expanding and aware me. ❤

Festive Eating Survival 101:

My Festive Season Prevent-the-Flab Strategy!

Hello everyone,

This piece was written in 2013; so I am going to add in a few quick edits now to update this for 2016.

If there was one message that I want to convey it is that Christmas is a time of sharing and partaking, loving and living.

Christmas meals are not about food but family, tipples not about getting drunk to escape but to enjoy company, to connect and relax; and desserts not about calories but sharing in an indulgence and just for once letting go without a judgement on the self.

Approach the festive period with the right mind and a balanced awareness around food and alcohol.

Be mindful of what truly matters and above all be grateful and as generous with your time, love and the abundance that you have as possible.
Wishing you all a peaceful, rested and abundant Christmas. OH and if you haven’t already listened; take a moment to check out my video and voice blog yesterday. Much love. Me x

Take a few moments to reflect….

To sign out for 2016 this is a gem of a cover that will hit you wallop in the heart and soul; love these boys.

Instead of giving you a list of “To Do’s” and to “ NOT Do”; I am going to give you a list of what I personally do to prevent weight gain and maintain my fitness over the Christmas period right through to the New Year. So that by New Year I haven’t ended up with a whole new me!
