Something to Think About

Hi everyone

I hope you are well and embracing 2015. I posted a blog last week (after a month break) and it appears that it didn’t publish. I would love you to have a look anyway – it’s heading was Back to School. I’m posting a new blog in the hope that I am now back “on air”.

I’m still in the process of cleaning old files and I came across something that I’ve saved with quotes about life. I have no idea where it comes from – if you do, please let me know. I’ve listed some, which I asked Eloise to choose. By the way the photo I’ve selected is a sunset taken from our balcony from our recent cruise – this was from my iPhone, so you can imagine how sensational it was!

  • When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
  • You don’t have to win an argument. Agree to disagree.
  • Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
  • Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
  • Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In five years, will this matter?”
  • Always choose life.
  • Forgive everyone for everything.
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

I hope these little quotes inspire you.  I particularly like the reference to chocolate and also never to take myself too seriously – I’m always laughing at the silly things I do or say!!

Enjoy your week.  I look forward to hearing from you – indeed if this goes out into ‘whatever it’s called’.

Love Chris xx

  1. Great Quotes Chris… and now I didn’t get your last post as I would have commented 🙂 That photo is amazing. I am yet to go on a Cruise… My parents go on them all the time. I’m not sure if I could cope with 2 weeks on a boat.. maybe I will just do a 3 days one to see how I go 🙂 I hope you are well! lot of love form Queensland!

    1. Hey Liz. I so appreciate YOU!! I can’t tell how much I love reading your responses. I hope life is going great for you – try a cruise but let’s chat first. I made your cheese biscuits for Christmas – fantastic and so tasty. Love Chris xx

  2. It’s called the never nevermind!

    Great quotes Chris. All so very true!

    You missed never play with matches and petrol, it’s bad for your hair.

    I have others which are equally important. I am not sure about ” don’t take yourself so seriously others don’t”, they should!

    Look forward to the next one.

    Is it true you dressed Mitxhiemoo in a school uniform on day 1 of school?

    1. Thanks Nelson. We look forward to catching up with you guys soon. No only girl school uniforms in this home!! x Chris

    1. Thanks Jen. I agree – whenever things aren’t going to plan, I just step back, take a deep breath and move on. Oh it’s so easy to hold someone else responsible for our happiness – it’s much more difficult to take ownership of our own happiness – but it’s the only way to achieve it, I believe. Thanks for stopping by. x Chris

    1. Thanks Jo – your are so right. Sometimes it’s an attitude and not placing too much expectations on the ones we love. It’s up to us to choose – and hopefully we can share our happiness with the ones around us. Thanks for visit my blog. X Chris

  3. We use the ‘will this matter in five years time’ idea at our house a lot. The last one is good too. I think there’s a lot to be said for showing up in all facets of life. Lovely wisdom. Thanks Chris x

    1. Thanks for popping by Ellen. Yes, the one ‘will this matter’ was Eloise’s favourite (given that she’s just done the HSC). And there are so many times, you just don’t want to face the day, but do it anyway. I wish I knew where these little quotes came from. I’m always coming across things I’ve saved over the years. Enjoy your weekend. X Chris xx
