It is time to Dare Mighty Things!
Come on people! The world we live in is changing. In so many ways. Listen to your intuition – your gut. You know it’s true. It’s time to be brave. To live authentically, consciously, spiritually and in connection. It’s time you really got to know yourself and what you were put on this planet to do….and go do it. Imagine if we all did what we knew instinctively we were meant to do. As a planet all our needs would be fulfilled because we all have our own special skills and talents, big & small. If we simplified things, got back to basics, pulled together and all contributed in our own special & unique way, I believe we would all lead much happier, peaceful, fulfilled, healthy and abundant lives. This blog will be a testament to that. It will introduce you to tips and tools to live a conscious and connected life and it will introduce you to people that are living their truth, being brave and DARING MIGHTY THINGS!
The truth is, we are all one and we are connected by the energy of love. As we fall in love with ourselves and connect to our truth, we can connect to others and beyond. To serve ourselves and then serve our world is the Daring & Mighty dream.
I am encouraged every day by people I meet who are daring mighty things. Their vision, bravery & experience inspire me to stay on my own special path. If you have a story that is DARING and MIGHTY please share it with me! Either email me: email@example.com or share with our Facebook community.
I speak to so many women who tell me they want to have a greater impact on the world. For some, that means simply showing up more authentically and with more love and patience for their family and friends. For others it means making change on a global scale. Whatever it is, they all agree they have been put on this planet to do something special and they so desire to get cracking! Get to know yourself first! Impacting the world – either within your own community or on a global level – starts with you. You have got to know who you...read more
I was speaking with a lady last week and she referred to her negative chatter as the ‘terrorist’ in her head. I thought that was a brilliant definition of the ego mind. Today I thought I’d share my TOP TIP to kill off that terrorist in your skull. Let’s do it with LOVE! “What would self-love say?” When your mind starts beating you up with everything that you can’t do or didn’t do or how you are going to fail or be rejected or whatever it is that you say to beat up on yourself, then ask yourself...read more
In this final edition of the #beGrandad 10 top tips on how to achieve happiness, we are talking about the importance of prayer and gratitude. My wise old Grandad wasn’t particularly religious but he did pray and say gratitudes before bed and when he woke up in the morning. It was a daily ritual for him and he knew instinctively that being grateful put him in a better head-space and prayer made him feel part of something larger. In short, he knew he would feel happier if he consciously recognised all he had to be grateful for in his life...read more
In this 9th and penultimate edition of the #beGrandad 10 top tips on how to achieve happiness, we are talking about the importance of eating well. My wise old Grandad was a firm believer in the meat & 3 veg rule!! Bless him. I am far more experimental and excited about food to limit my diet in that way but his point was to eat healthily, which he did. The idea is to love yourself enough to eat food that loves you back! My friend and founder of ‘Wild Nutrition’ is an advocate of the 70/30 rule. Hen is UBER healthy and walks her...read more
In this 8th edition of the #beGrandad 10 top tips on how to achieve happiness, we are talking about the importance of prioritising family! I wonder if that feels exciting or daunting to you!? The word ‘family’ can certainly conjure up all sorts of emotion! I have two big beliefs around family. 1. I get to create and choose my family. 2. The family I was born into are a gift of love and I choose to receive them as an opportunity for growth. Grandad was insistent on creating a family bond and saw family as crucial in terms of being...read more
In this 7th edition of the #beGrandad 10 top tips on how to achieve happiness, we are talking about the importance of looking after your body. My wise old Grandad believed it was super important to move your body every single day and engage in regular light exercise. Until the age of 99, he would start every single day with stretches and would be sure to go for a walk. He refused a cleaner and meals-on-wheels because he felt that meant he had less reason to get up out of his chair! So, he cooked his own meals right up until 99 too! What a...read more
In this 6th edition of the #beGrandad top tips on how to achieve happiness, we are talking about the importance of using your brain! I am sending you this newsletter from Paris where I am participating in a 4 day mastermind with my coach, Gina DeVee. I am using my brain, big time! My wise old Grandad would often say how important it was to keep working the muscle of the brain. He was committed to learning and trained to be an educational officer at Sydney Taronga Zoo where he volunteered for a decade during his retirement. There wasn’t...read more
In this 5th edition of the #beGrandad top tips on how to achieve happiness, we are talking about money. My wise old Grandad would say that money doesn’t make you happy. I believe that to be fundamentally true because I believe foundational happiness is an inside job and can’t come from external sources such as money. That said, I LOVE the support I feel when I am financially fluid. I DO feel happier when I have money in my bank account and I LOVE that I am able to be of greater service to others when I am fully financially...read more
Let me quote some of the absolute greats to explain this week’s #beGrandad rule for creating happiness in your life. “Travel brings power and love back into your life”. - Rumi “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving”. - Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for...read more
Being a self effacing Aussie girl, I like to see the funny side of my life and my behavior. Sometimes we just have to laugh at ourselves and not take things so seriously, right? Especially those of us that can get a little caught up in our head (ahem….yes, that can be me!). So, I’ll start today with a pic of me having my teeth cleaned (of all things!!) and that really makes me laugh. “Use Humour & Make Jokes! Today’s blog is the third of a ten-week series sharing tips that my 100yr old Grandad taught me as being...read more
