I’m not entirely sure why, but I’ve found myself thinking about my life now, and how that compares to what my life was like when I was much younger.

In doing that, I’ve wondered, if I was able to give my younger self some advice or information to help them, what would that be. So today I want to share with you another three bits of advise I’d want to give my younger self:

  1. Love, laugh and enjoy life – you only get one chance at it
  2. Spend as much time as possible with those you love, because you never know when it might be the last time you see or speak to them
  3. Forgive and forget as no good can come out of holding grudges

How about you, what advise would you give your younger self?

Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?

In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Watch a comedy show on tv                                                                                                                                                

Laughing increases dopamine in our bodies and that is a natural chemical within our body which makes us happy!

So go on have a laugh today, it will brighten your day!

Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?

In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.

So here’s today’s suggestion:

Carry your spirit in your pocket

That probably sounds like a really bizarre suggestion, but let me explain how to do this:

Get some mall bits of paper and write a positive but reflective word on each one – words such as love, laugh, compassion, reflect, comfort etc. Put the bits of paper with the words on them, into a bag or container, and then each morning when you get up, take one bit of paper out the bag/container and put it in your pocket.

Then during the day, each time your hand touches that bit of paper in your pocket you’ll remember the word on it and in turn will remind you to bless others by expressing that word in your actions and through your conversations with others.

So consider you spirit words careful, as they will be the actions/feeling you need to exude to others on the days you choose them.

We all make a fool of ourselves sometimes don’t we? Do you laugh at yourself when you do something daft or are you embarrassed and which the ground would open up and swallow you?

Personally, I’ve found myself in both situations, as I guess it depends on what you’ve done that’s so daft and who your with, how you respond. If I’m with friends or family I can probably laugh most things off, however if I’m with strangers or in a meeting I’m far more likely to simply want the ground to swallow me.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, no matter what we do or who we’re with, the ground never opens up and swallows us, so isn’t the best thing, just to see the funny side of the situation instead of stressing about something which is effectively now history? Easier said than done I know, but as the following saying says, at least we’ll give ourselves something to laugh about at any time!

In this last weeks, I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’ve been hurt and upset about some things that were said to me. Things which were completely unfair and founded in nothing but guesswork, and that hurt! (see my earlier blog post entitled Why Oh Why and People!)

If you follow me on Twitter you may also have read one of my tweets from Monday evening when I stated that I’d had a really crappy day on Monday and hoped that my week would only get better…well I am glad to tell you that it did get better!

I just love how when you’re down and feeling really low, friends are there to pick you up and raise your spirits, helping you to see things from a different, more positive perspective. Thanks you my friends…you know who you are!

My working week was rounded off today by meeting up with a friend I’ve not seen for a while, for lunch. We had a good blether and a good laugh. It was just what I needed after some of recent events. Thank you my friend…you know who you are!

What I want to say about this is that I truly believe that having friends come along and lift you up when you’re at your lowest, is God‘s doing. He knows when we’re hurting, He knows when we’re in need, He knows when we need help and He alone is able to send us the help we need. Thank you God, for all you do for me.

God is with us everyday, wherever we are and whatever we are doing. Trust Him for all you need and He will not let you down.
