Rejection Sucks! Or does it?

Come on, theres no skirting around the edges - REJECTION HURTS - like going three rounds with Mike Tyson then some!! But how about we completely turn rejection on its head?? Huh? I hear you say!  I ask you this.... Mentally have a little look through your past life pivots: - break-ups, job interviews (when your heart literally sinks as you fluff a question and you just know you're going to get the dreaded 'NOPE' call), and/or what about that college rejection letter - atmosphere buzz kill. What will the family say? Yikes, the look of disappointment on their faces! Boy it all felt like the proverbial kick back then didn't it?  But look, I'm not asking you to look through your past rejections to feel a pinch of pain (I'm not that mean) - I'm asking you to do so so that you can see just how the nature of those then 'rejections' lead you to the place/s where you are now! Life isn't tidy - its richly messy and uncertain and fragile and if it were not

Get up and be MOTIVATED!

Hello Stars, I trust and hope the world is being kind to you.  So what gets you motivated? Life can be a bit of a hamster wheel cant it? However here we are.

Maybe trying many different activities to find 'happiness' then subsequently finding out that they don't provide longterm happiness isn't such a bad thing - but be measured - be safe. The end result will always be the same.  If you're looking for joy outwardly its going to be a long tough road.  Alternatively, we could change our mindset.  We could start (for example) to look at the t

Random Acts of Kindness

Hello Stars! Its probably one of the first times in eons that we are all dealing with something together - not just the human condition as you're reading this - but a global pandemic. Its often been too easy to look at others suffering through a situation - a war/famine for example - and to feel quietly safe that it isn't happening to us - as its not in 'our country'. Not so in 2020.  Although 2020 has been a crushing and debilitating year so far for most of us wouldn't it be a nice thought to think that it may bring us globally closer together? To be less 'separate' and more compassionate towards the global whole? We all feel pain, suffer loss, feel unwell sometimes and need love - really the separateness we feel isn't real.  So! That brings me to the title of this post. How many of us are mindful of trying to GIVE rather than GET from others? How many of us practice kindness? Well truthfully I know many people that do, I try to make it part of my dail
