Did I mention..?

I’ve only gone and got myself another job!
Now don’t get excited, it’s not paid.
Oh, and don’t worry – I’m not giving up the day job either.
No madam, I’m not giving up the blog or the writing.
O.k., who shouted, ‘Shame!’? There’s no need!
Some people!
No listen, I’m now a columnist for ‘Canals Online’ magazine.
I know, I know. I’m chuffed once again. It seems that my chuffedness knows no bounds. Just as soon as I think, ‘do you know what, I think that I’m as chuffed as it’s possible to be,’ something comes along and boosts my chuffidity to a whole new level.
Now I must admit I feel a bit of a fraud. Stop shuffling about at the front and I’ll tell you why.
I haven’t actually got a boat.
Apparently I don’t need one.
Hard to believe I know.

Rebecca Katz’s Magic Mineral Broth

The Purple Almond

Hello everyone! I know I promised that I’d be back today, however, I had something come up, which may take up the rest of this week. So, I decided to repost one of my favorite recipes. This broth is just the thing for this time of year. If you’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, if you’ve have the flu or a cold, this broth is just the thing for you.

With each course at our school, we prepare a “recipe of the course”. This recipe from Rebecca Katz was the very first recipe we prepared. It’s divine and SUPER HEALTHY! I first posted this recipe a year ago.

So, I’ll be taking the remainder of the week off from my normal posts. If I have time, I’ll be posting my review of Sun Basket Meal Delivery Service. Also coming up are Blue Apron, as well as Martha &…

The failures of friendship

Scribbles by Shiv

Ive often felt like I’ve failed my friends. Infact, i know i have. Ive been the one that chose a relationship over a friendship, I’ve ditched people to move away and on to something else (usually only to return with my tail between my legs!), so its fair to say that through my own poor choices I’ve lost what i once considered good friends.

We naturally change friends as we go through life. We meet like-minded individuals and then our minds grow and develop, sometimes leaving said friendship faltering behind. Its not every time we lose a friendship that we actually feel that its a loss.

And then theres times when your completely taken off guard and all of a sudden those you considered your close friends seem to be withdrawing themselves from your life. The chatting slows, the tone changes, meet ups are few and far between. And no…

Shine Bright This New Year

A Christian In Bloom

In light of a New Year on the way, I wanted to write out my thoughts but also say them on video because this message is close to my heart and I think it’s so important we take this message into 2018 and beyond. ❤

It’s that time of year again when we eagerly await to shed this year and grow into a new one.

For myself, 2017 has been a bit of an uphill climb to say the least but I would also say in the best way possible.

I am certainly looking forward to 2018 and I am ready to kick some serious butt.

But I also know what it’s like to be on the other side of that mindset. There are many people who are going to be entering 2018 feeling the complete opposite of what I am feeling and so I wanted to just shout out…

The Little Crumbs

Dream Desire Achieve

IMG_3016Crumbs.

when I ponder its meaning,
it reminds me about
little things often overlooked,
little details sometimes missed,
little pieces behind the big picture…

In search of the glorious years
We lose sight of the little months,
Maximise the little days
And the months will flourish,
In search of the golden days
We overlook the little minutes…

little words of hope, little smiles,
little pats on the back, little prayers,
little acts of kindness and selfless love;
little things that may seem inconsequential,
but do make a difference when put together…

Crumbs.

as we pursue the big picture
may we not forget,…
The Little Crumbs in life.

Not Everyone Understands How To Struggle

DannyThere is a key element to success that not all people understand: struggle.  Struggle is a key element of getting ahead.  It exists in quitting smoking.  It exists in losing weight.  It exists in getting a promotion.  It exists in building a business. It exists in making more money.   Any time you look to advance yourself you can bet that struggle will play into the equation at some point.

For Mark Cuban it was living in an apartment with 6 other guys eating ketchup and mustard sandwiches.  For some it might be living without pay television, internet and not eating out for a year or more.  For others it might involve walking to work instead of driving.

I have joked in the past that anyone can work a home budget of $5000 per month, but it takes talent to live for a couple of weeks on $20.  You know you’ve lived the struggle when you can live in a major metro area and have the skills to stretch that 20 bucks to its max!

Most people are afraid of the struggle and they don’t know how to handle it.  Which explains why more people don’t reach their personal goals.  It’s not laziness.  It’s not lack of motivation.  It’s not lack of education.  It’s fear.  They fear the struggle.  They fear the ‘what if’ part of success that says ‘what if it doesn’t work out?’.
