Building Blocks

We are all familiar with the concept of ‘building our lives’. We usually look back over the past year or maybe even decade. We gauge how we’re doing by looking at how far we think we’ve come.


But what are we really building on? And what if on taking a truthful look we realise that we haven’t come as far as we’d first thought? You see, it’s not the events that happened way back when, it’s the stuff that’s happening now!

What were you thinking about before you started reading this article? Were you busy fretting over your inability to face a certain person/situation? Were you ruminating over how much weight you’ve gained or how awful you think your hair looks?

Stop right there! That last thought was the building block to your next one! Umm, not so good eh? I’m sensing a whiff of Pongitis! (see – A Touch of Pongitis 09 Jan 16) Actually, a bit more than a whiff, it’s everywhere!

Our thoughts are extremely powerful and lead us into emotional turmoil, bad decisions and wrong beliefs. So let’s make a concerted effort to be aware of our ‘inner speak’ and turn it into something kind and loving.

  1. When I think of some kind of loving, I think of Fruit Bats (I don’t care they’re a bit pongy – & yes I’ve lived by a Colony & in a Town that has the Flying Fox Festival!) …& my little son whose totem is a Fruit-Bat! 💟.. We both stayed home today as Life in the slip-stream, even remote, was driving us ‘bat-crazy’ …staying home & eating fruit whilst charging our BATteries was wonderful! 😄💖


    1. Tara, thank you for that. What a lovely picture it conjures. I do hope you and your son continue to have the wisdom to take care of yourselves and in such a beautiful way. Thrilled by this comment xxx
