A brand New Year and zero new resolutions! No new hopes and dreams, just the certainty of knowing your goals and a number of ways of how you may go about achieving them. After all, "There is more than one Road that leads to Rome!".
The past nine years have slowly taught me that tomorrow really doesn't matter. You have no control of the next five seconds of your life, let alone the whole year, or the future ahead.
I've learnt that remaining present in the moment, is far wiser and healthier, than wondering about where I could be instead.
I have learnt that nothing is impossible and what won't kill you will make you stronger!
Slow, can still get you there.
Don't sweat the small stuff...
Remain thankful, always!
Count your blessings and remain true to yourself.
Be KIND and RESPECT others!
Say good morning, even when you're having a bad one.
Listen to music... For the soul and music for your feet!
Have slower breakfasts and longer cups of tea.
