May the 4th

Sometimes it's difficult to decide which gift to give someone who you feel like they've showered you with so many. Not materialistic gifts such as an iPad mini or a Galaxy S4 per say, but gifts of encouragement,  of motivation, of support, not to mention many others.  These gifts are not only priceless, but they last a lot longer. 

So my wish to give a gift to someone who has given so much of the above to me, is the gift of gratification,  of gratitude to someone who is celebrating her birthday today...:

and many more!

May the 4th be with you!

"Understanding Air France 447"
by  Bill Palmer


Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…


Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet. 
Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. 
Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.  
Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. 
Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything out of your control is teaching you how to let go.

Life is a lesson.  Passing the exam is up to us.
Take to this Monday with the lessons above.  Do your homework no matter how long it takes.  Passing the test will be one of the greatest achievements you will ever accomplish.


Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…
