Trust your gut instinct

After recently going with my gut instinct, because my gut instinct in the past as usually been right, even when I used to ignore it at one time. I wasn’t going to ignore it again and so I followed my gut instinct of dropping the volunteer place that did not use me. I thought I’d share a quote on the subject of following your gut instinct.

Book review: ‘Heart Thoughts,’ by Louise L. Hay

IMG_1040.JPG

‘Heart Thoughts,’ by Louise L. Hay, I have owned a while now. It was a birthday or Christmas gift from a friend. Although I have read this book some time ago, it is still a book you can go back to and dip your head back into it. This book has been used a couple of times as conversation between my friend to me, so I can look up the page she talked about in her email, to read a quote that seamt right for me, at that period of time in my life. So this book I treasure.

This book is a collection of meditations, spiritual treatments and excerpts from Louise L. Hay lectures. They focus on aspects of our day-to-day experiences and are meant to guide and assist us in particular areas we may be having particular difficulties.

This book can be read through thoroughly, which I suggest you do first, as well as dip in and out of where you need to read.

 

Inspire me, my car driving friends.

Are you a manual car driver? Then I am calling on you to inspire me. 🙂

For some time now, I have thought about learning to drive, but it was always going to be in an automatic car. I seemed to feel surprisingly calm at the idea, but I did try to sway myself this year and try manual, but the thought of it just panicked me. After a recent chat with a family member on driving a car, he told me how you drive a car in a way that was easy for me to grasp. Although, the idea of driving a manual car, I still have doubts about, which is mainly hand and foot co-ordination. Also, I still wonder if manual driving is for me, because I have observed how many times a driver manually changes the gears while driving through the city and a seems a headache to me.

Now I have never driven a car, so these are only my thoughts about driving a manual car and not experiences, so this is where you come in. Do you drive a manual car? If so,  going back to prior having lessons, did you used to think to yourself I don’t have hand and foot co-ordination? This is my concern when driving a manual car; having gear and clutch co-ordination. Did it end up that co-ordination with the clutch and gears were better than what you originally feared?

Share me your thoughts and inspirations to me and for others who may be reading this and feeling the same as me, when it comes to driving a manual car.

Childhood memories – positive ones

As you will know if you are a regular reader of my blog, my childhood was tough. Reading on posts at the beginning of this blog and ones where I shared when having counselling will reveal those tough moment and how it affected me. Naturally, I had blocked out the positive stuff too, since I left school. I just did not want to look back. But I had to in the end and my counselling revealed lots about me, as well as hopefully being able to move forward and release the unnecessary guilt I had most of my life that I should not have had.

Recently, out of the blue, I had a few childhood flashbacks, but these ones were positive ones. I started writing them down and I was getting a few more, so I decided to one day to create myself a mind-map and sit down for just 15 minutes and see if anything else came to mind that was a positive thing from my childhood.

This was what I came up with.
