The 7 Step Happiness Makeover


“Future Focused”
Don’t dwell on your past, let your thoughts be consumed with possibilities rather than defeat and limitations. Each new day is a chance to better yourself. Don’t define yourself by who you once were.
“Feel all emotions”
It is easy to run away or distract yourself from negative emotions, but allowing yourself to feel and work through difficult times is the only way you will experience transformational growth.
“Set Boundaries”
Boundaries are put in place to protect yourself, not to control other people. Don’t create unnecessary drama in your life because you aren’t able to effectively set boundaries.
“Commit to healthier habits”
Drink more water. Stop eating when you’re full. Give your body movement and fresh air each day. Practice self-care and avoid burnout.
“Practice Gratitude”
Replace your usual complains with expressions of gratitude. Among all the things that are wrong, point out the things in your life that are right! You’ll be surprised how many you can find when you look.
“Cultivate Generosity”
Step outside of yourself and cultivate a spirit of generosity. Loving others through generous service not only deepens relationships but also makes you an overall happier person.
“Give yourself grace”
Stop being so hard on yourself. The key to experiencing growth and becoming the best version of yourself is to give grace to who you already are and love yourself along your journey.

Be Brave

Be brave. 

Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. 

Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the callers. 

Don't be afraid to go out on a limb. That's where the fruit is. 

Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. 

Don't forget, a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. 

Don't major in minor things. 

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don't spread yourself too thin.

 Learn to say no politely and quickly. 

Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.

 Don't waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. 

Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. 

Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, 'Gee, if I'd only spent more time at the office'. 

Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you're enjoying peace, health and love. 

Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. 

Leave everything a little better than you found it. 

Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. 

Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. 

Never cut what can be untied. 

Never overestimate your power to change others. 

Never underestimate your power to change yourself.

 Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. 

Remember that winners do what losers don't want to do. 

Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. 

Spend less time worrying who's right, more time deciding what's right. 

Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. 

Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. 

When facing a difficult task, act as though it's impossible to fail.

You are enough


It doesn’t matter who you used to be;
What matters is who you decide to be today.
You are not your mistakes.
You are not your mishaps.
You are not your past.
You are not your wounds.
You can decide differently today and at every moment.
Remember that.
You are offered a new opportunity with each breath to think, choose, decide and act differently in a way that supports you in being all that you are capable of being.
You are not less than.
You are enough.

Ring Ring! The Universe is Calling!


What is for you, will never miss you.
The universe will send you signs and the longer you ignore them, the more heartache you will put yourself through.
Learn to appreciate the guidance the universe is sending your way and walk away from whatever no longer serves your purpose.

Small Steps To Happy


Push yourself to get up before the rest of the world. Start with 7am, then 6am, then 5.30am. Go to the nearest hill with a big coat and watch the sun rise.

Push yourself to fall asleep earlier. Start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. Wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

Get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. Then sit and eat it and do nothing else.

Stretch. Start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes, roll your head, stretch your fingers. Stretch everything. (not literally men!)

Buy a 1L water bottle, start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in one day. Then try drinking two in a day.

Buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen, write down everything you do, dinner dates, assignments, coffee’s, what you need to do that day – no detail is too small.

Strip your bed of your sheets and empty your lingerie draw into the washing machine. Put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash it all fresh to dive into.

Organise your room. Fold all your clothes and pack for donations any that you don’t want. Clean your mirror, laptop, vacuum the floor and light a beautiful scented candle.

Have a luxurious shower with your favourite tunes playing, wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. Later your whole body in moisturiser and then slip into your comfiest pyjamas.

Push yourself to go for a walk. Take your headphones, walk by a lake. Smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised at how many smile back.

Become a better more mindful, pay it forward you. Let cars merge into your lane when driving, pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. Compliment people on their cute clothes and challenge yourself not to ridicule anyone for a whole day, then two, then a week. Walk with a straight posture, look people in the eye, ask people about their story.

Lie in the sunshine, daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. Open your eyes, take small steps to make it happen for you.

Whatever you are right now


Be confused, its where you begin to learn new things.
Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal.
Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions.
Be sad, because if we are brave enough, we can hear our hearts wisdom through it.
Be whatever you are right now.
No more hiding.
You are worthy.
Always.
