Here’s a sneak preview at the opening introduction:

“Who died and made someone else the boss of you?”
Trying to be someone you are not just to keep another person in your life really doesn’t pay; you end up getting used or growing resentful, then eventually you lose yourself in the process. Takers take and givers give. Which one are you? Come to think of it, do you even know who you are? I mean, really know? If I was to ask you right now on the spot, “Who are you?” I bet you would reel off a load of labels; mother, father, worker, student, etc. That isn’t who you are; it’s one of many roles you play. I want you to dig deeper and reflect on who you really are. Read on to explore what factors went into making you who you are today.

Pick up a copy up from Amazon in paperback or ebook version. The free ebook preview link allows you to read the first bit click here: https://amzn.eu/5euAhQc

Patience & Gratitude

Being Patient and Grateful improves mental health

Its not often we stop to reflect on our blessings and show gratitude. As a species we have evolved into very busy beings, and with such little time for contemplation we have lost patience with ourselves and others. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to stop, and just be.

Seriously just sit for a minute -don’t do anything and try to think about one thing you are grateful for in your life. Got it? Ok now think about one thing you could do for someone else that would make them happy. It doesn’t have to be a big gesture it could be a smile, running an errand or visiting for a chat.

The idea is that you appreciate what you do have instead of focussing on what you don’t have.  Also to carry out an act of service for another person encourages connection, love and warmth.

We are all in need of a bit of love, care and belonging to feel human. Accepting who we are and being accepting of others is key to a more satisfying life. Nobody is perfect but we can all be our own kind of normal, and thats good enough. 🤗

So what are you waiting for? Start practising being more patient and grateful and watch how your mood and life improves.😃

If you need help to explore your life and its highs and lows feel free to contact me for some Counselling sessions in the Birmingham area.

Love Kam.

Me Map

MEMAP2

The above figure is the “Me Map”. It details every aspect of your life and helps you reflect on what is happening in your life right now. It gets you to think about how you are feeling. Getting the right balance in life can be quite difficult and often we struggle. Using the “Me Map” you can begin to unpick what is happening and sort through what is important and how we can achieve a happier more fulfilled life. Sometimes we need to stop, think and reflect before we can make positive changes in our lives. Just like a jigsaw puzzle it helps to take everything apart and put it back together again but in the correct order for you.

Go on, have a go. Think about each aspect of your life right now in this present moment and reflect on what is real, what you want, and how you feel about your life. It may help to write things down as you move through this exercise. It could throw up some surprising revelations, and help you to focus you on whats important to you.
