SATURDAY SNIPPETS #5

Saturday Snippets - where the best things I've seen this week come together in one place

INTRO

I love sharing little snippets, so I thought I'd do a weekly round up of the interesting little quotes and pictures and memes that have caught my eye lately. I hope you enjoy them too - feel free to pin them or share them with other people if they resonate with you. I've turned off the comments on these posts because they're just a fun Saturday post to look at, enjoy and move on - hopefully with a smile on your face or with something to think about.

5 WAYS TO HANDLE A DIFFICULT PERSON

Some helpful advice on how to handle living or working with a difficult person, and how to survive the stress.

MY EXPERIENCE

I’ve mentioned several times over the last couple of years that I struggle sometimes with work drama and coping with a co-worker whose personal life overflows into our work environment. What I came to see over time was the detrimental impact it had on my own mental health and it’s taken a long time to find a workable solution to the situation.

LET'S HAVE MORE APPRECIATION AND ACCEPTANCE

The first letter in my A to Z of how I'm going to achieve "More" in my life this year.

INTRO

In choosing my Word of the Year MORE, I mentioned a list of the A to Z of things I'd like to develop more of in my life throughout the year. I'm not planning on participating in the AtoZ Challenge this year, so instead I thought I'd work my way through my "List of More" by choosing a letter every second Saturday to write about (interspersed with my Saturday Snippets - because they're fun to do too).

MY WORD FOR 2019 - MORE!

My word for this year is More! I've pared back and I'm reading to open my arms now and accept More!

AN ALTERNATIVE TO LESS

There's been a lot written over the last few years about minimalism and simplicity - and I'm a big fan of both concepts. But, after spending 2018 Rising from the ashes, now there's something in me that's calling for a different approach - something that's saying that it's okay to ask for MORE, that it's possible to be MORE, and that there's so much MORE out there for me to experience and learn. So, this year I feel like I want to open up my life and because of that, I've chosen MORE as my Word for the Year.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

It's time to have a coffee and a chat - I'll tell you all about what's been happening in my world this month

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

It's time to celebrate the end of December, Summer is well  underway down here in Australia - so, why not share a lovely Summery virtual cup of coffee with me while I update you on what's been going on in my life lately. I love a good 'Taking Stock' blog post, so I hope you'll humour me and sit a while as I share my news.

Hi everyone, this is my last post before Christmas and I'm on the countdown to seeing my family all arrive for Boxing Day. Here are a few things that I've been seeing on the internet lately - I hope you enjoy them too - feel free to pin them or share them with other people if they resonate with you.

YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE

I wonder whether we have more to offer this world than we give ourselves credit for?

TAKING A FRESH LOOK AT OURSELVES

I read two quotes recently (within a few days of each other) that gave me something to ponder upon. I wondered whether we have more to offer this world than we give ourselves credit for? I find it really interesting that I can see the great character traits that others have, and yet fail to see them in myself.


5 SOLO GETAWAYS THAT CAN RECHARGE YOU

Have you ever thought of travelling solo? Here's five great ideas for getaways to recharge you.

INTRO

I was approached recently by a company who is keen to promote the idea that you don't have to be part of a couple to enjoy travelling. If you're single there is still a whole world out there waiting for you to explore, and solo travel may be the way to go. It may take a little bit of a mindset change, or maybe you need a few suggestions to get you started - today's post offers five different types of getaways to inspire you.

3 REASONS WHY BLOGGING IS LIKE BUYING SHARES

Buying shares and writing a blog have quite a few similarities. Here's three reasons why blogging is like buying shares.

BLOGGING AND INVESTING

A few years ago a friend suggested that we start investing in shares because bank interest was so appallingly low and share dividends were much more lucrative. I'm a huge advocate of playing safe and shares always seemed a bit risky, but our friend recommended that we buy "safe" shares in banks because they won't blow up in our face like the more speculative areas are prone to do. It seemed like sensible advice and we've since used some of our savings to buy some "safe" bank shares.
