Your Story…Your Life…Your Choice

Our guest blogger this week is once again our good friend Trish Rock.
Her candidness is appreciated and I am sure resonates with many of us.

My life has changed dramatically over the past 6 years.

How did I achieve this change?

I changed my story.

Was it simple to change my story?


Was it easy?


What kept me going?

The pain of the old story was more painful than moving forward to the new.

We all have our story of what the reality is for us right now. It seems real, yes, it does, but at any moment we can change that reality. Its a choice.

When I first heard this truth I didnt believe it. 

After a few years of ‘doing the work’ to change my reality and not seeing the results I desired, I DEFINITELY did not believe this truth.

Then something shifted. Something inside me. A knowing. A trust. A remembering of who I really am. Of who we all are. That connection to all. That oneness of energy we all are.

Then, the NEW STORY I have been creating became a reality. Just like that.

Some of us have this shift quickly, some of us dont. I think the most important thing to remember is that IF YOU CHOOSE TO CHANGE YOUR STORY AND CREATE A NEW ONE, its about the depth of the decision and the trust you have that it is done.

The work I had to do to create this change started in my mind.


In my mind, I had to figure out that I already had everything I desired, I already was everything that I wanted to become and I already knew that I was connected to everything. The old words had to stop replaying. They had to be replaced with new ones, new thoughts, new truths.

The people that have helped me along the way have been important too. Not just the friends, family, coaches and mentors that have helped in a positive way. But all the other emotions that I have felt too, by the reactions I have chosen to have, with the situations that have happened around me, through me and to me.

Everything in perfect Divine timing to show me the next step, to show me where I needed to change my mind, to show me where I needed to change my words and actions.

So many of us are stuck, as I was, in the story that kept repeating, repeating and repeating.

Enough is enough.

You deserve better. You deserve to have whatever reality you desire. You deserve to have a new story of your choice.

Taking responsibility for our emotions, feelings and reactions to everything and everyone around us in the first step. Not easy sometimes but if we can ask the questions of ourselves, and stop all blame outside of ourselves, then the change will begin.

Whats YOUR current story? Is it a reality you are loving?

Take the first step to change- make the decision, the choice, that you are worthy of the life you desire. Then look for the next step and take it.

The change is within. The change is up to you.

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset

We should apply a growth mindset to all that we do in both our personal and professional lives. I am usually a risk taker and an adventurer of sorts yet occasionally the fixed mindset can still surface.
This also acts as a guide to caution and remind us that we have previously had a certain experience in our past that has taught us a valuable lesson. However, we must not dwell on the previous consequence but grow from the lesson learnt and move onward and upward triumphantly to success 🙂

Please listen to some great advice from a great young and successful entrepreneur Justin Atlan.,,,,,Click here- GROWTH MINDSET VS FIXED MINDSET

Never forget the inner child

Never forget the inner child

‘ Children are happy because they don’t have a file in their minds called ‘All the Things That Could Go Wrong.’ ~ Marianne Williamson.

In your spiritual practice, what are your favourite methods for retaining your sense of child-like wonder, joy and trust in life? Remember adults are simply kids that have grown older and not a separate being………… never forget the inner child 🙂

Perspective Your day depends on your perspective

Perspective Your day depends on your perspective

Never underestimate the talent of our children at any age. It is often said that we never give them enough credit especially when some of them appear more ‘worldly’ than we are.

We are all talented in different ways with some obvious overlap with others. But my point is that we should not be envious or jealous but rather the contrary and be grateful and proud of others in what they can do.

Now the following ‘letter’ is simply awesome. Read the poem from top to bottom then from bottom to top. This was written by a 14 year old! Bless them.

“A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.

Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile; my
sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?

The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a
quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her

Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said:
mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you
think you are, always delay judgement.

Give others the privilege to explain themselves.

What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.

Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others
without understanding them first.

Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but
because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but
because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologize first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong
but because they value the people around them.

Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing
but because they see you as a true friend.

Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do
but because you are in their heart.

Those who take out time to chat with you, does not mean they are jobless or
less busy, but they know the importance of keeping in touch.

One day, all of us will get  separated  from each other; we will miss our
conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had.

Days will pass by, months, years, until this contact becomes rare… One day
our children will see our pictures and ask ‘Who are these people?’ And we
will smile with invisible tears  because a heart is touched with a strong
WITH’. ”   🙂 🙂 🙂
