It’s almost Christmas!
Like you could forget? Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, you’re surrounded by it.
Me? I am excited. When I was little someone said the best thing about Christmas was giving presents. Being small I could not understand that at all.
How could giving be better than GETTING?
Now I understand. I really GET the joy of giving, and I am so excited to give some presents, I’m thrilled about the day.
Never used to be this way. I was so paralysed with wanting to give the perfect present, wanting the other person to love it, and therefore love me, I tried to avoid the whole thing for a long time.
Overwhelm leading to procrastination and avoidance. Then Christmas Eve would hit and I’d run down the shops, scrapping and fighting for something, anything I could wrap and call a present.
Yeah, not that good.
Funny how when you’re attached too much to something you make it worse, huh?
Anyhoo, enough from me, let’s get into some things you can read and look at whilst in the bathroom trying to avoid THAT relative …
Have a great time, whatever you choose to do!
Quote for you:
"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.
They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
The guy lived through hell on earth and still came out saying no one can take away your choice.
Make it easy! Why not make it easy indeed? The wisest words I’ve heard for a long long time.
Now: What's stopping YOU make it easy?
I talk more about the above quote by Victor Frankl. I talk about the simple beauty of choice, I talk about your "why," how your choice revolutionises your stress and happiness and your fulfilment of each and every moment, and all about learning and growing in making your own choice more and more.

“Buddha never had kids and a job and a mortgage.”
Buddha never had problems! You think?
No matter what you think Buddha did or didn’t have … here’s the beauty of all your problems and challenging situations – actually.
Book I’m reading:
Alright, I'm cheating a little on this one, but ...
Authors say how they hate reading the book they have just written, that they cringe when they see the words they put down.
I’m actually still loving my book, “200% – An Instruction Manual for Living Fully".
Every time I pick it up, I get a little “wow!” from it. I know it’s my baby, but I truly think it’s a really good book for helping anyone make their life easy, simple, more alive.
If you get a copy on Amazon (search for “200% – An Instruction Manual for Living Fully") see below for how you can get free access to my online course that’ll be based around the book:
I will certainly charge for this course at some stage, but for right now I wanted to give you something to say thanks for getting me book.
Thank you and have a wonderful time!
It’s almost Christmas!
