“And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came. “

             — President John F. Kennedy

How to grow our happiness?

Imagine this: she is 20 years old, married with a beautiful one-year-old daughter. She has not finished High School, only Year 10. She has a loving husband who works 6 days a week. This is his second marriage. Two boys from the first relationship are without a father now. He feels guilty. He really does want his marriage to work this time. Can he do it alone?

She is unhappy. She has a beautiful house, money is not an issue, but her health is all over the place – no energy, she is very skinny. They fight. He does not understands her. In his opinion she has everything.

Where is the problem?

Is it him, because he works 6 days a week, comes home late with a lot of money but no energy to play with a child and to help around the house? Or it is her, as she does no have a mother figure in her life? She lost her mother when she was only 4 years old.

“The only happy person in our house is my little girl.” – he said, his voice expressionless and eyes without sparks, full of sadness.

We are born to be happy. Where does our happiness disappear? It is hidden under piles of negative beliefs and life patterns.

The dictionary definition of the word “pattern” means: a model to be imitated. We imitate our parents and our society. We embed patterns from our childhood.

Think about your life for a moment…. What cyclical patterns can you see? What experiences, people and behaviours seem to be repeating in your life?

Do you understand your patterns? If they are not serving you or are sabotaging you, please do something about it.

Awareness is the key to change. 

If you are not aware of your patterns and you don’t work on them, you will keep attracting the same situations and reality in your life, whether you like it or not.

I’d love to hear from you. Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

Coaching you to success,

Happy New Year!

In the course of a life, what is a year?

How was your last year, 2013? Did you achieve what you wanted? Did you learn something new, and feel positive about it? Did you get a new perspective in your life?

What if you were stuck, and came to the point that the pain in your heart was so great, that you knew something has to be done?

We have two choices everyday. You can choose to think positive or negative. One of my friends said it this way:

“You have two beasts in yourself – positive and negative. They fight. Which one do you think is stronger ? The answer is: the one you feed everyday. If you chose the negative one, this beast will be stronger.”

So … help yourself to be the best you can be in 2014. Look at your options if you are at a crossroads in life. Choose the pathway, which feels better and lighter. Fix the things, which are causing you pain, whenever it could be. Do not look to others to make you feel happy and fulfilled.

Instead of placing responsibility of all your happiness on another’s shoulder, take care of yourself because for real happiness to occur, you have to make the effort to make yourself happy.

Work on your needs; don’t run away from your issues.

Wishing you a successful 2014,
