I Accept original T-Shirt – Proud

I retrieved some of my old clothes from lockdown and I put this T-shirt back on for the first time in ages!

It’s the original design, ‘I Accept’ T-Shirt.

I felt really proud putting it on over my head, it was the first ever item I bought along with the I Accept Hoody and mug [which my mum still has]. I remember how proud she was when it was delivered.

It represented a version of me that actually took action in realising a dream, to share my desire with the world that through acceptance, we can really overcome any setback or challenge that we find ourself in, and take action to get to where we want to be.

Be proud of where you and who are today.

Overcoming the challenge is within your grasp.

What challenge will you be overcoming?

Crows Feet

Laughter is universally the best medicine but it comes with a catch; crows feet…

While many people do all they can to rid themselves of the ‘wrinkles’ around their eyes, I would encourage a different approach. Embracing them for all that they are. Proof that you lived a life full of laughter, smiles and joy.

Finding joy is a skill we all possess. It does come more naturally to some people than others but we all have the ability to find it, feel it and embrace it.

I shared a quote the other day along the lines of ‘look for the good, and the good gets better’, and I believe this to be true. Where we set our sights is our destination. If you want to find humour we will find it, if we want to find negativity we will find that too. What many of don’t realise is that through a lifetime of pre-conditioning some of us don’t believe that positivity and joy are real things. They are a thing of happy endings in books and what happen to other people.

But they do happen to you too. You just need to look for it.

If you’d don’t have crows feet now, what will you do to get them?
For those of who do have them, who or what gave them to you?

Describing Unwanted Thoughts

How many overwhelming thoughts are you getting at the moment? How are you interacting with these thoughts?

It can sometimes feel natural to want to fight these unwelcome thoughts, shout and scream at them! Does this help?

Or does it just spoil your day?

The next time you get an unwelcome thought I would like you try something new.

want you to talk to the thought, as if it’s a family member. Something that is just trying to get your attention. You will remain calm, and you’ll describe the thought in detail.

What is the thought?
What does it look like?
What does it feel like?
Does it make a particular part of your body feel differently?
What does that feel like?
Is it a colour?
Does it have a texture?

Throughout all of this, you will remain calm, you’re in control of your response, and you will not get into the thought, you’re observing the thought.

When your done, imagine the thought slowly drifting away from you until it’s so small you can’t even see if it’s travelling further away from you.

Did it work for you?
