Thought For Today - Happiness Is The Smile Given To You

inspirationHappiness and contentment are not reached through success and financial security. it's about the way you enjoy the smallest moments in your life being aware of what is going on around you and what is given to you when you didn't asked for anything. Happiness is the smile given without asking something in return, it's about feeling that you may be just who you are, in what ever happens being taken care of, being safe and secure.

Contentment is being OK with yourself finally knowing that your efforts to do or act better where about the importance you gave to someone else, comparing and judging yourself.

Thought for Today - How Serious Are You About Your Dreams?

holisticInstead of hoping for the best or dreaming about a perfect future make yourself useful in this moment. Do what you have to do but not out of duty as all what appears as tasks or circumstances in your life are opportunities for development when you no longer resist what has to be done.

The more conscious you live being aware of your own actions, the more you will understand about the power you have to manifest just that where you are dreaming about. It's not about sitting back and thinking positive, repeating your mantra's or praying every day but all about taking responsibility for your own life.

Thought for Today - Feed the Mind with Trust and Peace

cyprus blogIgnorance and stubbornness are the two enemies of growth not giving space to new ideas or allowing change to happen. Intelligence and wisdom initiates freedom in which you allow yourself to explore and discover all what is hidden in the unlimited potential you are.

Don't be frustrated or angry when people around you don't see or understand what you are already be able to comprehend as fear keeps them prison in their false ideas being safe and secure with what they believe and understand so far.

Ujjayi breathing, yoga, and a healthy Sunday brunch

marys dinner club

Sunday’s introduction to yoga had us all - those with previous experience in yoga and those without - waiting in anticipation. We’ve formed a sort of ‘Kate Fensom fan club’ here in Limassol for our teacher. Kate had been at Mary’s exhibiting her enchanting art and doing her first impromptu poetry reading for us, then returning for a poetry event and now for an introduction to yoga.  I was jokingly saying to her ‘You could just have us stand on our heads for an hour and we’d still love you’.  

 

Kate’s wonderful character and shining personality make her the perfect teacher. Knowing her dreamy art of fairytales and imaginary creatures makes her explanations and demonstrations of yoga postures seem even more effortless. Just like for the poetry reading, we had the honor of being ‘firsts’ - the first yoga group since Kate usually teaches individuals. There were eight of us - all of slightly different levels, but all of equal enthusiasm and eagerness to learn. Our teacher’s initial slight nervousness did not bother us at all, on the contrary, her honest way of telling us about it made her even more endearing.

Networking over Lebanese favorites and small business start up advice

marys dinner clubFriday’s third Get-Together of Mary’s Network was another successful and generously sponsored event - always a treat for me as I get to ‘hang out’ more. Especially this time as it was over Lebanese food, featuring my favorite dish - Manoushe Zaatar - a thin pizza brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with a thyme-spice mix. Middle Eastern food is popular in general and certainly had our attention on Friday. 

Manoushe Lebanese Food & Bakery had sent us wonderfully arranged trays of their different kinds of food - Manoushe Zaatar, Manoushe Lahmatzoun, Manoushe chilli, Manoushe spinach and Manoushe Halloumi, Pizza, Kibbeh, Falafel and Fatoush - a true Middle Eastern feast! Even their desserts were included for guests to try - their Mahalabiya, Katayef and Walnut and Anari Shabiat.

How To Write A Blog - Hint - It's Easy!

sarah fenwick bloggerMost of us have no problem at all talking to our friends about our passions, hobbies or businesses, but when it comes to putting pen to paper, or fingertips to keyboard, suddenly we're faced with what seems to be a page full of doubts.

Will people like my writing? Will they care about what I care about? Will the readers be interested? Do I have something important to say?

Instead of a blank piece of paper or blog post, what we are now staring at is a list of all our invisible insecurities, starting with the one instilled by our English teachers of old - what if I spell something wrong and they all laugh?!

Thought for Today - Don't Rush Today

thought for todayDon't rush today as there is no time, be aware that you only fight with your illusions of being late, not being on time. Today be aware of what you are, eternally present!

There is only past and future in the limited mind and time will disappear as you finally enlighten the truth about your presence not being the mind. It's a deep realization of Self no longer identifying with all what matters not giving it a presence or form.
