The Joy Scientist working to make you more joyful and happy in your lifeThis week's affirmation: Celebrating life enhances my experience

How did you get on with my little challenge from last week of looking where you were judging things.

I'm feeling positive, if a little tired still, after the interesting times I've been having. I love being happy and positive, but I know that for myself, the way I know I am happy and positive is because I have some comparison.
In my not so distant past, I have judged, been negative, talked people down, sneered and laughed and sometimes been a bit of a bitch.

What? really? no! I can't believe it Andrea, you're such a nice lovely positive person. Well, it's true and it's OK. It's all part of who I am and who I am yet to become.

I see life as a journey and sometimes the road needs resurfacing. Sometimes, it's smooth sailing as you glide along ( me on roller boots rather than a boat!) But it's all life, and it's all part of the journey.

Often we want to understand what is going on and why things happen, and often when we think we know what is happening, a wild card or curve ball gets us and knocks us down. Do you have padded trousers on today?? Hee hee.

When I'm feeling down, I listen to why I feel down and try as best to accept it. I am who I am and some days I'll be a miserable old cow, and others be bouncing and cheerful.

Having been up and down and where I am now, I realise its all transitional, and the most confusing things that happen, just defy explanation. Maybe the universe knows what it's doing, maybe it doesn't. Maybe everything is just about muddling through.

If you ever think about giving up, don't. Just take a breather - a short rest at the side of the path. Take in some sights. Hang around for a bit. Only get going again when you are ready. There's plenty to see wherever you find yourself.

I'm off out into the garden now, as there are some nettles and brambles that need pulling up and stamping on. The nettles round our way are like ninjas, they can get you through gloves and then when you least expect it they attack your arms and legs.

Still the fact that they grow means I have good soil. Even though this isn't great for my numb fingers !

Before I ramble too much more and put you all to sleep I'm going to call it a day. Remember, life is a journey, of ups and downs and roundabouts. Enjoy the roller coaster ride, and take a breather when you need it. I'm always cheering you on to do whatever you want. Take care of yourself.

Have a great week, and I'll be around soon with some exciting news and an opportunity not to be missed.


Have a happy week.


Keep Smiling !
