  • Don't worry about finding the right person. Worry about BEING the right person. (:

  •  Don't look for love, it will find you. Focus on you and figuring out who your are, because if you don't truly know who you are how can someone truly fall in-love with you. 

  • Put your phone down.

  •  If you've been with someone for a very long time, and you feel like you want to give up on them, think back to when you fell in love with them. Think of why, and how you felt, and who they were that made you fall so deeply. Think of that, and think of you together with them, that way. Those are words of advice from my 87 year old Grandmom, and I will never forget those words, or what it taught me.

  •  Forgive

  •  If you want unconditional love ..... get a dog ...

  • Never react when you are angry or hurt! Wait at least 24 hrs, you will always react differently!

  • What's done cannot be undone, what's said cannot be unsaid

  • One of the best advice I read was from this poem...WOMAN WITH FLOWER: especially with my Children as they became adults making it on their own...

        I wouldn't coax the plant if I were you,         
        Such watchful nurturing may do it harm.        
        Let the soil rest from so much digging         
        And wait until it's dry before you water it.        
        The leaf's inclined to find its own direction;        
        Give it a chance to seek the sunlight for itself.          
        Much growth is stunted by too careful prodding, Too eager tenderness.             
        The things we love we have to learn to leave alone.

  • You can choose how you feel in this very moment. Happy or miserable; it's 100% up to you. You are creating your reality in your head, create it wisely. Find the positive in even the most difficult of situations, and life will start to get better simply because you're shifting your focus. Love: Don't expect love to be easy if you're not going to put the work into it. Love is a verb, not a noun. You must choose to make your relationship more about the other person and less about you and your own needs. Strive to brighten up their day, and you will be in love forever.

Do More Than Exist therapy counselling Leicester

  • Follow your heart, but take your brain with you!

  • Live for the moment. The past is dead...Tomorrow may never come. If you live for right now in this moment your life will come alive!

    Love you!

How To Be Happy therapy counselling Leicester

  •  You teach others how to treat you by what you will and will not accept.

  •  You were born to make mistakes ...not fake perfection!

  •  Don't expect another human to make you happy...its to much to ask..you are responsible for your happiness ..then you can love without expecting someone to fix you.

  •  Pay attention to actions, not words!

  •  We each have our own journey, path, existence...listen to YOUR heart. You know yourself better than anyone and your situation whatever the case. Work on yourself first and when you're happy with your reflection the rest will fall into place

  •  The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.

  • if your gut instinct tells you to run, then run!

  •  Let go of what causes pain and suffering. Love yourself and follow your passion no matter what anyone says. Try to be the best person you can be. Be caring and respect each other. Never cease to be amused with the beautiful world around you - like a child 

Hugging a Cactus therapy counselling Leicester
  •  drop " I " for " WE "

  •  Be honest. Share yourself and your heart. Spread joy and love with all you've got. Most important still is to reach out to those in need. Even strangers.

  •  You can't win an argument. Even if you win you loose. You have no right to judge because you don't know the life story of the other person. Don't think negative thoughts because they create your reality.You alone are responsible for your life. Don't be the victim of your past. Every day is a new beginning and you are your own master. When you change how you think about things, the things change.

  •  If someone says "Come back and I'll change" the only right response is "Change, and I'll come back"

  •  Practice and teach gentle things, like fingertip touches, speaking in low volumes, listening to the quieter sounds (bird song or a car coming they are all useful), and remember that giving is better than receiving (smiles are contagious - giving one will get you one)

  •  Don't listen to people's advice. (and yes, I get the irony. G)

  • Be in love. All the time. It is a state of mind, way more then a physical thing. Love yourself. No one can love you if you don't love you. Warts, wrinkles, your curves, love it all. All the time.

  • Crap happens. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Life IS unfair. Nothing to do but make the best of it.

  •  More music . Less TV...

Know what you are willing to put up with. No one is perfect. Love isn't about finding the perfect person. It's about 2 imperfect people capable of loving each other despite their imperfections. Live, laugh and love.

  •  Keep practicing

  • if you want love....BE LOVABLE

NNobody Loves a Frown
  • "Every marriage tends to consist of an aristocrat and a peasant." This arrangement only works until the peasants revolt.

  • No one said that life or love was easy, it's hard work, patience, a struggle sometimes. It's fighting, crying, hurting and apologizing. But both life and love are well worth it all because you learn, laugh, heal give too and even when you THINK you're done there's more and in the end you just might find it was worth it all, so don't give up.

  •  Be an unmaterialistic optimist. AND try to have these RARE human traits: common sense, common decency and kindness to all things.

  •  Don't ignore red flags. If something is nagging at you, pay attention before you go down a path you might regret.

  •  Be a good listener, pay attention to everything going on in the world. Be sensitive and truly connect emotionally with people. Be a source of strength for the world. And lastly find your own limits! Do not let some over educated spiritually bankrupt soul tell you how smart you are or affect any goals you might have!

  •  The best advice I would give anyone is to be kind to yourself and others,enjoy every single moment of every day,because it could be your last...

  •  Love life


Dedicated to my brother, David, who doesn't think life is worth living. I hope he changes his mind.
