Are You Getting In The Way?

Are you getting in the way? Hey everyone, I hope you are well. Welcome to Blogtober 2020, Day five. Wow, I’m getting into this everyday blogging lifestyle. I hope you are enjoying the previous blog posts in the past four days. Check out my last post, Declutter your 18 Month Wardrobe. Have five days gone already? I’m enjoying waking up to a new day and picking a card. It’s been enjoyable and its something I see myself doing this every morning.

It is a great way to start your day with a positive mindset. Have checked them out yet? Let me know what you think of them.

What I love about these cards is they are minimal and lightweight. There are no rules of what time of the day you should select a menu. I prefer to take me in the morning because it is a great way to start the day with a positive mindset. I believe that is what we all need right now at this stage.

Today’s LSW Mind Cards is Reflection.

Are You Getting in the way?

We are getting out of our dynamic mode and into our heart occasionally. I’m confident that many of us would find at least one moment during our day where we could pause, reflect on a situation, and see something that we can do to make a difference in someone else’s life.

The pace of life and work has increased a lot, and I daresay we don’t give as much thought as we could to the circumstances of other people’s lives. Sometimes, we’re so caught up in our struggle that we don’t think we can even afford the time to “give” our time, suggestions, talents, to others. And yet, if we do, we are rewarded.

We are frequently, throughout our lives, able to experience richness, synchronicity, and reward through small acts of generosity. This isn’t even about money, although sometimes the tips will impact our financial status as well. And yet, we fail too often when we are so self-absorbed or consumed by our situation thinking we’d give up too much by helping.

So, this is just a gentle reminder for all of us to pay attention to at least one “little thing” that will make a difference for someone else. Try to make it for someone you don’t know well or don’t know at all; family and friends are too easy and natural.


Due to Covid-19, I recently lost my dream job, all my plans had been cancelled, and basically, everything I have worked hard for has been cancelled.

I have three choices:

I can stay angry, watch the news and panic every single day. Or I can try to make the best of it and stay safe. Or I can start to think positive and make new plans for the future. I believe everything happens for a reason.

With the way life is now, nothing is for sure anymore. The only thing we can all do in this situation is still looked after ourselves and pray for the future.  We will get through this, and when we do, we will have stories to tell our future family.

I hope you enjoy this post.

See you tomorrow.
