January 29th




"Always leave enough room in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, or even joyous."
Paul Hawken



Take time today to think of what makes you happy. Yes I know your family do, let's look deeper!

On my first post on this Blog I said that my word for 2008 is FREEDOM.
Over the past 29 days I have been trying to find some of that freedom.
My goal is to be able to say ‘no’ if I am asked to commit my
time when I have already planned to do something just for me.
Often in the past I have said ‘yes’ when I have really thought NO.
I have made some advances in achieving that goal and certainly
have more time to be happy doing all the things I love to do!

Shirley that is really intersting to read and a great idea to photo. Such imagination!
Interesting cos I have just finished counselling re DS and one of the things that came out was I never please myself but always everyone else and need to have more Me time and to please myself and to say NO!!
