Think Like a Monk

Think like a Monk: Train your mind for peace and purpose every day by Jay Shetty.

I don’t normally do a book review until I’ve finished reading it but I thought I would give a taster for this only because, right now he is in the middle of a 20-day meditation and passages from his book reading session (by middle I mean day 5) which he is doing live at 5.30 pm on Facebook and Instagram.

Loving Insights

This is an extract from the book Yoga Girl by Rachel Brathen from Chapter 3:

  • Meditate, meditate, and keep on meditating until you’ve learned to let go of all the things you fear to lose.
  • Take the step. Don’t be afraid. Follow your intuition, wherever it takes you.
  • You will always be okay! Money and material things come to you when you dare to trust in life’s ability to take you exactly where you need to go. When we live in fear we create tense vibrations that keep the things we long for at a distance. Worrying is praying for what we don’t want to happen. Focus on what you want, not what you fear!
  • Do no harm – but take no shit!
  • Ask the universe for what you want. If you don’t know what you want in life, how are you ever going to create the life of your dreams? Write down everything you want to create. Be detailed. Take all the active steps you need to take. Ask for what you want and keep your intentions loving and clear.
  • Explore the world and soak up the wisdom that lies in every lesson you learn along the way. Life is meant to be an adventure.

Calm Sleep Stories

I’m not sure why I’m so obsessed with sleep. I’m sure when they are ready they will start sleeping through the night easily. Until they do, I think I will be obsessed with it.

When the girls were babies, I used to love getting the girls ready for bed. A little while after dinner, we would come up, give them a bath, gently wash their hair and then wrap them up in a big towel. Once in the bedroom, I would rub oil or cream and massage it into their chubby little bodies, then put their nappies and nighttime onesies on and then read to them. I would put some music on and then lie with them until they fell asleep. I too would ‘nap’ or fall asleep with them for a bit and then creep out the room trying not to wake them up. Even then some days were better than others but there were more good days.

February turned into an ‘Accounting for Bloggers’ month on my site. As a blogger, that might be the last thing you want to do. In reality, apart from accountants, who really wants to think about accounts? Still, if you have decided to monetise your blog and it is creeping over the £1,000 mark, you may need to start considering your tax position.

If you missed February’s Accounting for Bloggers month, don’t worry. This post will summarise everything that was covered in the four-part series.
