Saturday thoughts:


Good morning, saw this and thought what a good way to look at this situation:


Hi there everyone - a lovely thought for Feel Good Friday ###


Self care is also a way of caring for everyone else too. Remember - You can't give from an empty cup πŸ˜ƒ


A bit of wisdom for today from rainy Eketahuna :)


Hi there dear ones, I think we can all relate to this...............

Hi there, saw this today and thought it was too good not to share ❀

A young couple moved into a new house. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging the washing outside.

"That laundry is not very clean; she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better soap powder. Her husband looked on, remaining silent.
Every time her neighbor hung her washing out to dry, the young woman made the same comments.
A month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, "Look, she’s finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?"
The husband replied, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life… What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.
So don’t be too quick to judge others, especially if your perspective of life is clouded by anger, jealousy, negativity or unfulfilled desires.

"Judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are."


Hi there, here's a smile for today: 🀣


Just collected this arrangement from Jellybud Florists downstairs. Thankyou ladies, I love it. It's in our reception area. www.facebook.com/@jillybud


Hi everyone, a little sample of what Hypnotherapy can do for you - Enjoy πŸ˜„


Here we are half way through the first month of 2022! How's it going? I think it's fair to say the past couple of years have been tough and we are heading into another challenging year.

I want to invite you to consider taking some time to work on you. Hypnotherapy is a powerful and positive way to make changes that you may be struggling with.

Feel free to contact me for a chat, book a discovery session and explore what 2022 could be like for you 😁


A lovely thought for today :)


Just thought this was interesting - hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather

β€œThe world is increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more? How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturiser? You make someone worry about ageing. How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about immigration. How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything. How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws. How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out. How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind. To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence. To be comfortable with our messy, human selves, would not be good for business.”

- Matt Haig, in "Reasons to Stay Alive".


This is 100% correct πŸ₯°


This is from my colleague Avril, and it is the best advice :)

This awesome tip comes from a recent VIP client who’s celebrating how she's now able to wear her wedding dress β€” from 18 years (and three children) ago.πŸ’ƒπŸΌ

Big yay for her, right!!!

Her response surprised me when I asked what it was that made the difference in her weight loss journey.

It was...."commitment to tiddler steps".

I know right, it seems too simple!!

But it makes sense.

We can accomplish anything, no matter how big, if we break the journey into small enough steps.

She was wise and used this principle specifically around exercise.

SIDE NOTE: I recommend that clients move their bodies for 30 minutes a day, doing something they love.

Not for weight loss, but because being sedentary is very unhealthy.

Our bodies are designed to move, and sitting at work, on the sofa, in the car is less than ideal.

But she "hated all forms of exercise".πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

So, she took tiddler steps.

She started by walking around the block every day.πŸšΆπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Sure, it was only 5 minutes, but here's the thing….

She started.

Before long, she was enjoying the gentle stroll in the fresh air, admiring neighbour's gardens, feeling proud.

She reckoned, "getting out past the letterbox was the hardest bit".

Before long, she was looking forwards to her short daily walk.

By making the goal tiny, she dealt with that fearful, critical, self-sabotaging voice in her head.

You know the one.

That inner mean voice that wants to achieve everything, like, yesterday!

The way to outsmart that voice is to take tiddler steps.

The beautiful thing is even tiddler steps add up to radical change over time.

Ironically, that's precisely why the inner mean voice doesn't want you to take small steps.

Because it knows you will create change!!!

So over to you, lovely.

What's your tiddler step?

What one small thing can you do today that would move you closer towards your happy shape and size?

Is it a five-minute walk at lunchtime?

Maybe drinking more water?

Perhaps adding more veggies to your plate?

Often, the slightest tweak creates flow, so you gather momentum.

Get clear on your next small step, and go do it now.πŸ’š


Wow! This resonated with me so much! No matter what age, what's in front is much more important than what's left behind. Yes, we can learn our valuable lessons from the past but lets look forward to 2022!
