Adventures in Awesome Living

Take any item that you can catch, be it a bunch of keys, a piece of fruit, a coin, or anything small.

Now relax, throw the item in the air to at least your eye line or higher, and catch it.

Do this now, before you read the rest of this column. It will only take a few seconds.

After you’ve caught the item, ask yourself what you were thinking when the item was in the air.

It wasn’t anything to do with work was it?

It wasn’t worrying about money?

It wasn’t worrying about what you should have eaten?

It wasn’t worrying about what you need to do?

At the moment the object was in the air you were in a state of pure awareness; you were in the present moment, completely focussed on the object…..a moment of instant Zen.

May your life be filled with such moments.



Your authentic self is who you are when you have no fear of judgment – Dr Philip McGraw

If you decide to do the things that are easy, life becomes difficult.
If you decide to things that seem difficult, life becomes easy
– Stefaan Engels (Engels ran 365 marathons in 365 days after being diagnosed with severe asthma: a world record)

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do – Sarah Ban Breathnach

Take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: you have no one else to blame – Erica Jong



There were three Indian squaws.

One slept on a deer skin, one slept on an elk skin, and the third slept on a hippopotamus skin.

All three became pregnant.

The first two each had a baby boy. The one who slept on the hippopotamus skin had twin boys.

This just goes to prove that… the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides.

Just in case you need a little help……Pythagoras? Albeit with a little poetic licence.


To your success,
