Let's have a blessed week!

Happy Monday!!! 


How is your day going today?  Has anything exciting happened?  What have you achieved? 
As I eat my cheese bagel and read over my email from Inner Space it got me thinking... Are we happy with dissatisfied with circumstances or ourselves?

Last night I took my mind away to a sunny beach, with white sand and palm trees.  College is stressful sometimes and the work load is heavy.  But if I went on holiday wouldn't the stress just be removed temporarily?  Wouldn't it be here when I got back?  So how can it be my circumstances that are the cause of my stress.  Holidays do not cure stress.

This morning's email was entitled 'The Way Things are'.  It asked, after we change things around in our lives, how soon are we discontent again?  The most effective way to conquer discontentment is to start with contentment.  Creating contentment with our current circumstances; the way things are arranged and our routine at this current moment.  Only then can we think about making changes to what we are not happy with. 

So that's what this weeks goal is!

Goal- Becoming content with my current position in life.  Inner satisfaction.

Positive Thought- Being thankful for my current position in life.  I think I will make a list of all the things I am experiencing in my life and why I should be thankful for them.  What do those situations mean? And what new circumstances will follow?

You can sign for a Thought for Today email over at Inner Space.  Their emails are beautiful and really give you food for thought.  I fully recommend!

Have a blessed week everyone. Much love xx Peach.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday! Happy Thankful Thursday!!

It's been a good week for me this week.  Despite suffering from sleep deprivation I'm feeling fabulous!  Easter was a wonderful affair. The half term is always a pleasure (more opportunity to sleep and forget about assignments).  All that fabulousness has made me thankful! 

I am thankful for new experiences. 
I tried lobster for the first time on my anniversary with the mister.  We dined at Burger and Lobster.  I've been wanting to go for ages!  As I tucked into my lobster I felt so greatful to be trying something new. When I was younger lobster was something a million miles away from the food I was used to eating.  I always thought it was for posh people.  I was not an adventurous eater as a child.  And there I was eating lobster and chips! Amazing! 

My love had a burger. 

I'm now thinking of all the other things I need to experience.  A flash mob would be fun! I've actually got given some cards for my birthday about 500 things you should do at least once in life. I think it's time to get them out! 

I am grateful for board games. 
I loved playing monopoly as a child.  I still love playing.  Over the Easter, I played Spongebob Squarepants Monoploy and Marvel Monoploy with my little people.  That game will never get old! 

Last but definitely not least I'm thankful for SUGAR!!!!
Lent is over! My gosh it was difficult! I admit I fell off the wagon a couple times but I did my utmost best to stick to it.  It was a lot harder than I thought.  I can honestly say I appreciate sugar a lot more now.  I will still officially class myself as being in sugar rehabilitation (you have no idea how much sugar I consume) but now I have a new found love for sugar. Umm...not sure this is a good thing though. 

Well, that's my thankfulness in a post for this fortnight.  I hope you're all thankful for something today.

Much love.

Let's have a blessed week!

Happy Monday!

Another start to, another week (although, I am sure we are all still in Easter weekend mode).  As I get ready to get stuck into my last few weeks at college.  I'm contemplating how the academic year has gone , and how the next few weeks will pan out.  While this year has been a real learning curve for me, I am really, really looking forward to completing the year (academically).  Access courses are definitely not for the faint-hearted!

With that in mind, here is my goal and positive thought for the week.

Goal- Put 150% effort into the last of my assignments.

Positive thought- Spend ten minutes each morning reciting positive affirmations about the day ahead.  How can I get what I want from my day without putting it to the Universe?  If I don't dictate what I want through words, my subconscious thoughts and reactions will...this may or may not be a good thing.

What is your goal this week?  What thoughts are going to enhance your life while you go about your daily doings?  Let me know how your week goes :)

Lots of love. Peach x

Throw out the fiction and get real!

Today's affirmation is "I will throw out the fiction, and get real!"

Most of my free time is spent reading fiction, fiction, and more fiction. Occasionally I find myself holding a beautiful non-fiction book about spiritual progression, finding oneself or synchronicity.  I start these books with the best intention, but find myself side-tracked, leaving them half read. 

However, I am now pledging to finish them!  Not only that but I will review each one I read, for you guys (see, I'll have to read them now haha) :) 

I've recognised that my life needs some guidance at present and I've got some wonderful titles that hold the most magical material- 

1. Loveability by Robert Holden
2. The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield
3. Synchrodestiny by Deepak Chopra
4. The Magic by Rhonda Byrne
5. The Tenth Insight by James Redfield
6. The Celestine Vision by James Redfield
7. The Ultimate Happiness Prescription by Deepak Chopra
8. Manuscript Found in Accra by Paulo Coelho (I'm sure this is non-fiction, but the story is told by way of fictional witting)

Three of the above I have already read but I have no problem re-reading and studying them again.

As we speak, (as I type) I am collecting up my library fiction to return tomorrow.  Only to be checked out in the event I complete my new book list.  

So, look out for my up coming review posts!  Let me know what you think of my new venture. Maybe you will read a couple of titles with me, or you may have already?

Happy Tuesday people. 
And much love as always.

Spending time is precious.

For the past three/four weeks I have been avoiding doing my coursework.  And I mean avoiding in the sense that I find other more enjoyable tasks to partake in, when I should be concentrating on my studies; classic procrastination.  
Although, I do complete my work in the end, the journey to get it done is so long winded!  I evaluate how I've spent my time and regret not doing priority tasks sooner.  My procrastination activities are always the same- Snapchat with my friends and other time consuming apps, playing Sims, catching up on my shows on the iPad and reading. 
This week I have decided to try to eradicate these distractions.  I came across this on Instagram- 

We all have the same 24 hours, but how is it some manage to do more than others?? 
Why do we always state that 'there are not enough hours in the day'? 

Isn't it funny how we always make time for pleasurable activities but don't seem to have enough time when it comes to doing the things we NEED to do.  This is definitely true for me!

I know I need to spend my time wisely.  I want to achieve more than I currently do and I have no doubt that it's possible.  I congratulate myself on being able to recognise that I need to change this aspect of my life.

So this week, I have pledged to avoid avoiding my priority tasks.  I'll organise my time to fit in all that I need to do, then slot in leisure activities in my remaining time.  And I will definitely be turning my phone off during study mode!

So, it's goodbye procrastination; hello advancement.  
How are you procrastinating? Do you spend your time wisely? 

Love. xx
