OH FOR A BURNING PASSION TO PURSUE!

What do you do when you don't have a driving Passion? How do you go about finding something to inspire you to pursue a new direction? #passion #inspiration

WHAT IS MY PASSION?

After many, many years of being certain that those with a Passion were not my people, I've suddenly come to the realization that they might have been onto something that I've missed seeing. I'm finally admitting that I have a small amount of envy in my heart towards those clever people who have something they love doing and feel the need to pour all their energy into.

Here's the latest little snippets from all over the place that caught my eye and I thought were worth sharing.

IS THERE LIFE AFTER LEAVING WORK?

I don't have a lot of physical clutter or junk because I'm a minimalist at heart, but I was carrying around a LOT of mental and emotional junk from my not-so-perfect job. #declutter #wellbeing

I'M A GUEST AT STW60 TODAY!

My Blogging Friend Sue from Sizzling Towards 60 and Beyond asked me to write a post for her #JunkFreeInJune series. I don't have a lot of physical clutter or junk around me because I'm a minimalist at heart, but (up until recently) I was carrying around a LOT of mental and emotional junk on the inside - from my not-so-perfect job.

WHAT'S EVEN BETTER THAN HAPPINESS?

Happiness is promoted as our ultimate goal, but I've found something even better - peace, calm and contentment. #midlife #inspiration

WHAT AM I LOVING MORE THAN BEING HAPPY?

I had a strange feeling in my heart recently and I couldn't identify it for a while. It wasn't exactly sparkly happiness, or joyfulness, or elation, so what was it? It took me a little while to figure it out because it wasn't a feeling I was used to and it took me some time to put a name to it.

3 FACETS OF TRUE KINDNESS

The Virtues Project - The 3 facets of kindness - 1. Kindness to others  2. Kindness to our world  3. Kindness to ourselves #virtuesproject #kindness

KINDNESS HAS MORE THAN ONE FACE

When people talk about kindness they tend to focus on being kind to other people. The idea that we show compassion and concern for those closest to us and from there we spread it further afield. As I looked at "K" for Kindness in my List of More, I chose the definition from the Virtues Project as my starting point - and it opened my eyes to the fact that there's more than one facet to kindness.

DISCOVERING YOUR 6 CORE VALUES

Explaining why you need to know your 6 Core Values and how they apply to your decision making process. #midlife #values

WHAT DRIVES OUR DECISION MAKING?

As anyone who reads my blog knows, I've been thrashing around what to do next with my life. I talk about it a lot with my husband and I think he'd finally been talked to death, because he suggested I look at my core values because they'd help me to see why I was vacillating so much in my decision making.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

If we were having coffee these are a few of the things I'd share from my life that happened in May. #midlife #ifwewerehavingcoffee

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

If we were having coffee these are a few things I'd be sharing from the lovely month of May. I always enjoy a good 'Taking Stock' blog post, so I hope you'll humour me and sit a while as I share my news. There's nothing like a virtual cuppa and a chat, and I have lots to share from the last few weeks..

LIVING A LIFE OF JOY

Do you want more joy in your life? Then swap out expectations for appreciation, take the time to look for moments of goodness every day. #midlife #joy #expectations

FINDING JOY IN OUR LIVES

Do you live a life full of joy or are you just scraping by and finding a few scraps of joy here and there in the daily hustle and bustle of life? I used to think that joy was the Golden Snitch of life - occasionally you managed to catch it, but most of the time it was snatched from your grasp by life's ups and downs.

If you're wondering where your joy is, or where it went to, or how to get it back, maybe some of my experiences will ring a bell for you and start you back on the path to joyful living.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A MIDLIFE METAMORPHOSIS?

How to cope when life throws you a curveball in your 50's. It's an opportunity for a Midlife Metamorphosis. Are you ready to embrace your transformation? #midlife #transformation

WHERE TO FROM HERE?

Whenever life throws us a curveball, we're left with the mighty question - Where to from here? I think we've all asked it at various times of our lives. I know that I'm in the middle of asking myself what I'm planning to do with the days, months, years ahead now that I'm not working anymore. Paid employment has been part of my adult life for the last 40 years - so what do I do now that it's not who I am any more?
