I Am More Than My Story

I am more than my story – Eve Patti / Simply Ripping

Iammorethanmystory1

I am more than my story.  I love this saying and if you wonder what it means then here we go.

Sometimes things happen and it makes our hearts sad, angry, unhappy etc and we have to work through it.

However a wise man said to me, “do not let the event become you, do not let it be you.  Enjoy the rest of what life has and what you are.”  So in those times I say to myself “I am more than my story”

Think of the people in your world, friends, parents, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters etc and the joy those relationships have

Think of who you are as a person, kind, loyal, quirky, funny, loving, cook, massage therapist, artist, music lover etc

Look at the world around you and see the sun rises, the clouds in the sky, the wind blowing through your hair, the way the sun feels on your skin, the sound of a stream, music, art, a book,the sound of children, the stars in a night sky, your body and how it feels to just breath and behold just how beautiful it all is if you take the time to appreciate it.

So many wonderful things that make you and are all around you

You are more than your story.

Happy New Year!

embrace the momentJPG

Embracing the moment will be a key focus for me in 2015

Making sure I take the time to appreciate what is happening and not being so focussed on rushing to the next thing that I miss what is wonderful in the now.

I started this in 2014 and its a habit I wish to grow more.

An amazing poem called Leisure highlights this perfectly:

What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare?

No time to stand beneath the boughs,  And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass, Where Squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see in broad daylight.  Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance.  And watch her feet, how they can dance!

No time to wait till her mouth can,  Enrich the smile her eyes began?

A poor life this if, full of care.  We have no time to stand and stare.

– W. H. Davies

Thank you so much for all your support and follows.

Wishing 2015 to be filled with love, happiness, laughter, health and amazing food for you and your love ones.
