How To Discover Magic In Our Lives…


On this wonderful first day of our weekend, I had to share this lovely short GRATITUDE film that I came across on Facebook when I woke up this morning.. (scroll down to the bottom)

It’s a reminder of the wonders of our World and the beauty we can enjoy when we make each day a new and precious adventure and remember to be grateful for the miracles that we have in our lives that we often forget to see…

Lets open our eyes to the magic that surrounds us every day. just waiting for us to discover and enjoy … Here’s some of my ‘little bits of magic’ captured with the ‘magic’ of a camera – how lucky is that!!

    I believe staying happy is simple but we humans complicate our lives by not enjoying the blessings and always worrying about issues.

      Oh so true! You’re absolutely right – it is simple and we definitely complicate it! Enjoy a wonderful day! x

    I try always to see the best in my days, but a reminder never goes astray. Thank you.

      How lovely Barbara.. you clearly have a wonderful outlook on life! Yes – we all need the occasional reminder – writing the post is my reminder too! x

    Turning gratefulness into blessings. This was a lovely video and reminder Wendy. I hope this week you’ll be grateful for running water and a cooktop again. 🙂 Hugs xo

      Oh me too Miriam.. no joy yet though.. Plumbers!! x

      • March 6, 2017 / 9:38 pm

        Fingers crossed it’ll happen soon! x

        • March 6, 2017 / 11:11 pm

          I’m hopeful and even so, it’s really taking shape and I’ve been able to fill the cupboards! x

          • March 6, 2017 / 11:21 pm

            Yay, that’s great Wendy. I’m just about to head out the door and ho visit my sister. Have fun filling those cupboards! x

          • March 7, 2017 / 10:53 am

            Brilliant.. Yep cupboards are full! Hope you had a great trip to see you sister and that she’s ok too… xx

          • March 7, 2017 / 11:33 am

            Woo-hoo full cupboards! 🙂 Yes, had a lovely lunch with my sister and a very busy afternoon. Soon off to bed Wendy. I have an even bigger day tomorrow. (My interview is your bedtime.) xo

          • March 7, 2017 / 2:47 pm

            Oh wow – GOOD LUCK!!!!!! Sleep well my lovely friend! x

          • March 7, 2017 / 9:15 pm

            Thanks Wendy. Three hours till I’m in the “hot seat” but before then I have to take my sick daughter to the doctor so a busy morning. Hope you’ve had a good day. x

          • March 7, 2017 / 10:54 pm

            I’ve got my fingers tightly xxx Miriam… I hope you’re daughter’s ok too? Take some deep breaths and keep saying to yourself that you’re calm and confident… Best of luck – I don’t think you’ll need it though!!! xxx

          • March 7, 2017 / 11:01 pm

            Hey my friend, just back from the doctors, Tash is now in bed again. Has a respiratory tract infection, lots of rest and some meds needed for her. As for me I’ve got a load of washing in the machine, about to get myself spruced up then I’m out the door. Thank you for the good wishes Wendy. I’ll do my best and if it’s meant to be it will be mine. Big hugs xo

          • March 8, 2017 / 5:04 am

            What’s meant to be will be.. I’ve just woken up Miriam and hope it went as well as it could… xxx
            Yikes – sounds a bit gruesome for you daughter and hope she is feeling much better soon once the meds kick in! Lots of TLC from mum I’m sure.. xx

          • March 8, 2017 / 5:27 am

            Absolutely. Lots of TLC and she’ll be ok. 🤕 Well the interview went well Wendy. I felt very calm, confident and think I did as well as I could. It was a strange ending though, one of the managers kind of rail roaded the end by going off on a tangent about her own personal itinerary and life. Still, I feel as though I really connected with the other two, just hope she liked me as well cos it’s her I’d be mainly working with. Time will tell. The job sounds so good. Like I said though, if it’s meant to be it will be. I really believe that. 🙂 Hope you slept well. I’ve still got your last email on my mind with your amazing sub contracting news. Your vision boarding is really working for you isn’t it? I’m so happy for you Wendy. Talk more soon. Big hugs for a great Wednesday. xo

          • March 8, 2017 / 7:50 am

            I always think that no matter what the outcome of the interview, it’s so much easier to move forward if you come out thinking you ‘did your best’… There’s always a chance that we may not ‘connect’ with someone or there is someone who ‘pips us to the post’.. but for me, my first panic attack happened IN an interview and I couldn’t speak or breathe and thought I was having a heart attack!! so for me coming out of the door thinking ‘I did well’ is my own personal validation! I’m so pleased you were able to say that after the interview Miriam!!! I’ve had some strange interviews too where people forget that they are meant to be bringing out the applicants skills and experience and simply pontificate about their own lives!!…. oh dear…. Well it’s done and now you can chill out have a cup of tea and focus on some TLC for your daughter! I need to drag myself out of bed and do some ‘training’ instead of ‘pontificating’ about it!! haha… Enjoy the rest of your day Miriam… xxx

          • March 8, 2017 / 9:07 am

            Oh so very true Wendy. I’m now sitting back listening to some cruisy Ed Sheeran with a cuppa as the sun is setting. Feeling content that hopefully things will turn out, if they’re meant to. If not, then life goes on and something else will come up.
            I can only imagine how immobilising a panic attack in an interview would have been for you. Having gone through a number of them myself I know how crippling they are. Nothing more for me to do now except to not get this cold that everyone else in my family seems to have come down with! Have a great day Wendy whatever you’re doing. Hugs xo

          • March 8, 2017 / 9:11 am

            That sounds like the perfect end to your day Miriam.. dreamy music and a setting sun – how magical! Yes – I fully understand why it happened now but at the time it was absolutely horrible.. it happened in the subsequent 2 interviews too and set me off on my ‘hypnotherapy journey.’ First – having treatment to overcome the attacks (successful thank goodness!) and later, learning to become a hypnotherapist.. every cloud has a silver lining doesn’t it?
            I hope you manage to stave off that cold – get the Vitamin C on the go! Good luck and have a lovely evening.. I really am going to get out of bed – it’s now 9 a.m. and I’m still sat here.. oops xx
