Life Is Not About Where You Are Now

Recently I spent the weekend listening to Wayne Dwyer’s CD called ‘The Shift’.  As I listened to the whole programme, the quote that most stood out for me was “life is not about where you are now, it’s where you are going that counts.”

A calling is that which you feel deep inside of you and it doesn’t have to make sense to anyone else. I encourage you to do what you do in life because it’s your calling.  Don’t let your doing-ness get in the way of your being.

Every day that you awake to a new day, you can choose to live in higher awareness and be steadfast in your thoughts and actions. Explore your patterns of behaviour and as you walk into the future, leave behind those patterns that no longer serve you.

As you change direction, be mindful of how things will unfold, as Wayne said, "very often the truths that you adopted and made your own in the morning of your life won't matter in the afternoon".

Random Acts of Kindness

If you want to see more kindness in the world, give it out…

I was recently on my way home after speaking at a conference and drove through the village where I live. I went into the corner shop to pick up some bread and milk and there was a boy of about five or six years old in front of me in the queue. He had a bottle of pop in his hand and the lady who was serving frowned and told him in a loud shout to put the pop back as he was 5p short. I watched the child’s physiology crumble in embarrassment as he went to put the pop back on the shelf and behind me the queue was growing with very impatient people.
Then it was my turn to pay for the milk and bread; I asked the woman to take an extra 5p from my change and pay towards the little boy’s pop.

As I walked out of the shop I could see the little boy’s eyes fill with delight when the woman shouted to him to go back and bring the bottle of pop back to the counter.

Where in life can you pay forward for someone else and make their day?

Random acts of kindness can change a life…
