I am very happy to report that The Haven Zoo has raised half the money to replace the shelter for the goats and llamas, including a number of generous sponsorships. A massive thank you and well-done if you have donated or sponsored an animal. If you have yet to make a donation to help, don’t worry, there is still time! With the generous funds, The Haven has purchased recycled tin for the roof of the new shelter.
Have you ever noticed those who have that certain swagger? Individuals who are so confident, they seem to glide through life? Check out Freddie and Hutton, two fantastic llamas from the Haven Zoo. Confidence is key, Hutton has classic symmetrical banana-shaped llama ears while Freddie, well who could say no to that grin? Embrace who you are and own it, live your truth and take on the world.
This week, challenge yourself to focus entirely on the present moment. Don’t lament the past, or worry about the future. Just live each day, each moment, completely in the now.
Although I often urge people to be kind, there are some unfortunate occasions where you simply cannot be responsible for someone else’s feelings. Be kind, but also remember that the only emotions you are responsible for are your own.
Sometimes the road may seem difficult, but eventually once you arrive at your destination, the journey will be well worth it. Plus the best adventure stories never come from easy paths.
Tomorrow is the first day of the first full week of the new decade. Are you excited to return to your routine or dreading the first day back at work? Set an intention for compassion and kindness towards yourself and others and the rest will fall into place.
If you made a resolution that you have found difficult to keep be patient- changing habits take time. Shift your focus to long term success and don’t worry about being absolute and strict. Achieving goals comes from persistence over time, not perfection.
It is perfectly normal to feel somewhat bewildered in the days after the holidays. It’s not quite time to be back on a full work schedule, but yet it’s not a holiday nor is it the weekend! Don’t worry, just roll with it and things will return to routine soon.
Let go of all doubt and know that you have got what it takes to reach your dreams. Don’t hesitate to put yourself out there and take risks – and never be afraid to fail. Make 2020 the year of going for it – whatever your it is!
As our inboxes fill with ideas about how to improve ourselves for the upcoming new decade, perhaps consider (in contrast to the last post) that you are enough just as you are. Perhaps this is the year where you don’t need to make a resolution or revamp your life. Perhaps this is the year where you celebrate you – just as you are – and trust that you have everything you need already. You are enough.
Is there something you hope to someday accomplish? Imagine if you started working towards that goal now where you could be at this time next year! If it’s worth it then don’t hesitate to get started – if you wait until everything seems perfect the chance might skip you by.
