When are you going to follow your dreams? Write a book? Travel? Learn to Paint? Now or later? There are so many captivating and exciting things to do and learn. When are you going to start?

Having multiple interests in life is good for you. Two or more passions give you a greater sense of wellbeing and happiness. We all juggle with the day to day stresses and strains. Which include work, family life, and responsibilities. But what about re-connecting with what makes you passionate?

It’s never too late to try something new, or refresh your interest in an old passion. You only regret the things you don’t do, not the things you do do. And are we lucky or not? Do we have choices here? Or are we forced into a life of unhappiness and frustration?

Connect with the world around you. Pets, people, plants, places and the planet. Reach out and connect with your inner self.  Are you happy in your own skin?  Do you enjoy your own company?  Make space to explore, think, reflect and relax.

Capture the feeling, the happy, feel-good feeling. It is within you, learn to bring it back to the surface. Meditation helps, just 10 minutes a day will give you a starting point. Slow down and concentrate on your breath. Enjoy the moment you are giving to yourself.

Life is a balance of being and doing and most of our pleasure comes from just being. Take time to really notice your family, and friends, without judgement or analysis.

Go on, give it a try – what are you waiting for?
