If you were given a crystal ball and it revealed your life’s history, your present day, and your new direction in life with The End Result given to you….would that a make a huge difference in your life or would you dismiss it as being a hoax?

The End Result Is Within

In life there is always a mystery path to take, with an outcome that is sometimes surprising and other times a clear-cut end result. If you have ever been given a new challenge in life, with questions that need to be answered then you will understand what I am saying and where this is going.

Life is meant to be full of good times, and some not so good times. It does not matter what life throws at you, its how you handle yourself that is important. Either stand tall and proud and be quiet, or crumble into a heap…you have a choice which person you want to be.

So why be tall, proud and be quiet. It’s really simple – if you stand tall and you are proud it will show in all aspects of your life. Being quiet – that is the part where you will find your answer giving you the end result. Look within, listen to your inner voice and you will find the true you.

If you are going to crumble into a heap then do so – but do so when no one is watching. Why you might ask? Because in real life people make really quick decisions about your personality, and unfortunately once they have made up there mind about who you are (the real you) then its really hard to change that image.

So What Does This All Mean?

I have met some amazing people in the last two years, women and men that have influenced my life in one way or the other. Sometimes I have really connected with them – other times I have chosen to avoid those people. I need to surround myself with people who will assist my life journey with a positive outcome. This past week I have seen two amazing ladies being questioned about their life’s purpose, their website name and even the direction that they are taking with the internet. I am proud to say that they have stood tall, stood proud and are questioning within.

With the way the are handling their current situation, and their outlook on what new direction their life is taking – I know they will succeed. Why you might ask? Well because on the outside of ones personality you can tell how the inside of their personality is behaving.  They might be having a melt down – especially with all that is being thrown their way – but those moments are private moments. Which goes to show you how strong they really are.

The End Result

There are no easy answers in life. It’s what you do with the situation that makes you the person you are. Are you going to stand tall, be proud and be quiet so that your new direction will be shown to you…almost like a crystal ball giving you the answers?  I send my thoughts out to these two amazing ladies, and wait with excitement to see their outcome of the end results that they discover.

How you thought about how your image in life reveals the “real” you? Are you going to handle life challenges by being Proud, Tall, Strong. with faith that all will be ok?

Life is a mystery, with no crystal balls on offer. BUT you create your life, so which direction are you taking next? Are you heading down a path that you are meant to be taking…or are you going against the tide with the end results not what you expected?

Here’s to you standing tall and proud

Sometimes I wonder about life and wonder if there is reason in Understanding Life. What can I say….I am a dreamer and have always been passionate about what I do. But there are times I have to wonder.

How Understanding Life Will Help

If you have ever gone through life and wonder how you ended up in the position you have landed in…then you know what I am talking about. For those that have no idea what I am saying – just bear with me here and pretend to understand!!  I have a vision in life, and I have a dream. Sometimes it is clear…..other times its like a fog coming in off the hillside rolling towards me but is still not all that clear.

Understanding Life Seems Unclear

Understanding Life and all of its meaning sometimes is clear, other times unclear. When I wake up in the morning and I jump out of bed feeling on top of the word – now that is a day to be grateful for. Other days I wish my head fuzz would clear and point me in the direction I am meant to be taking.

When the morning starts of in a big haze, I know that I have to listen to the little voice within. It soon helps with understanding life and its purpose. Those times when I have a clear head, I tap into my creative dreams and visions. Those are the days when I smile the most. Those days seem to be coming in fast and furious and I so love them. They make all of my hard work, blood sweat and tears so worth it.  With my dreams and my passion I  know I will succeed.

Is Your Life Worth Living?

I have to ask you this question – Is Your Life Worth Living? Are you getting out of bed in the morning and being thankful for all that you have, and all that you will receive? Are you focusing clearly on what you want, rather than what you have had? The more you focus on the direction you want your life to head the more you will receive

“What You Think About Will Happen”……not sure where I heard this saying but I have taken it on board. The more you focus on what is lacking in your life, the more you lack. Understanding Life and the Law of Attraction, and how it all works will shape your future.

So What Is Your Life Worth?

Are you destined to be poor for ever more, or are you destined in life for grander things? I know what I want in life, I have a purpose and a dream. Slowly I have shaping my life towards the direction that I do want, and to understanding why I was born.

Have you reached your full potential in life? Are you living your life with passion and determination? Life is so bloody short so make the most of what you have, and create more of what you want. Focus….Determination……Mindset……Dream……Share……Love…..Grateful………Faith – they are all the qualities you need for success.

What Are You Doing To Determine Your Understanding In Life?

Here Is About A Book I have being reading called “Wake Up And Dream” by Pat Mesiti. If you are a regluar to here then you would have seen a few blog post about my favorite book. Being a book-worm means that I am reading at least two books at the one time….and not normally finishing the books before picking up another one to read.  This Time Was Different.

Wake Up And Dream By Pat Mesiti….

Is one book that is now my very best friend, and one that I was not able to put down until I read the WHOLE book – actually I am going to go back and start again, this time with a hi-lighter!!

Here is a twist to my blog…..I have decided to place a live video here on Woodys House from Youtube… this being my very first time that I am going live with a video, please be kind with your comments (or Maybe be honnest in a kind way !!) 🙂

Chapter Two Of Wake Up and Dream

In Chapter Two Pat Mesiti says “Dreams Change Lives. You’ve read this far yet you might still be thinking: What will a dream do for me? How can it change me?”

Then he goes onto say……. “In a nutshell: dreams will make you. They will create your character, your attitudes. Build you up. Make you a better you – unless you like the you that you are and don’t want a New Improved Version!”……

There is more written in the book, which I highly recommend you get a copy of – Maybe try ebay or a second hand book store!!! Then there is the summary of Chapter 2 which is what I read out loud.

This book has opened up my world…..I am meeting many like-minded people who I would never have been game enough to meet before – believe it all not, I actually am a very shy private person and stepping out of my comfort zone is thanks to this book. Image if I had never read the book, never pushed myself? Imagine not finding my true passion in life and chasing my dream? That is what is happening to too many Men and Women in this very world we live in. We are getting caught up in life and not dreaming.

So I challenge you  –  Step up to your life. Dream your Dream Life. Right down your plan/your goals – tell all those around you what you want. Say it loud, Say it enough, Repeat it to yourself. Watch how the universe will provide for you. Believe in yourself……I have tested out the Universe lately and every single goal I have wanted has come true – the Universe answered my wishes.

You Are So Worthy of so much more from life. Grab your chances with both hands, take on board what you believe and ask for your Dreams to come true.

I will go onto Chapter three shortly, but before I do…..I ask of you – What Are Your Dreams?

Thank You so very much for staying around Woodys House to read my blogs, and share my dreams.

Here’s To Your Dream

“Wake Up And Dream” By Pat Mesiti….

Is the book I am reading at the moment.

For those that do not know me that well, I am a mad book-worm. I actually have three books on the goal at the moment, and never enough time in the day to read them all !!!

“Wake Up and Dream” is a book I really relate to.  I started to read the book yesterday and was not able to put it down, so already I am half way through the book 🙂


At the beginning of the book it address a few statements that I went ‘Oh yeah that’s me”. In the Introduction it says…. “You’ve Picked Up this Book and there’s a reason for it”. Gosh that very first line got my attention. I am a huge believer in that I attract different mediums into my life for a reason…..from meeting a new person, to a new experience, to even a book….there is always a reason behind every move I make. Sometimes the reason is not clear, but within days I soon find out the meaning behind my actions.

The next line nearly jumped out of the page at me….”You’ve shown the first quality of being a dreamer. You’re dissatisfied with the way things are as you look around and you want to see some changes, some improvements. You’re not content with the status quo”…..I started to wonder. How Does Pat Mesiti know me so well? Did you write this book for me, or just for all dreamers? Is there others out there that are dreamers? GOSH I was hooked, line and sung with the very first page…..

Wake Up And Dream

I kept on reading and more and more the words clicked and I was thinking “Gosh I have finally found out who I am”….I Am A Dreamer And I Am Proud Of It!!!!!

Towards the end of the Introduction Pat says… “This book asks you “Why Not?” – and the answer is “There’s no reason why not”. It all bolts down to one thing. Having a Dream. Being a Dreamer”.

So I am asking you today, Are you Awake? Do yo have a Dream? If not Wake Up And Dream.  Pat Mesiti is a person who has faced many challenges while growing up – his childhood was no picnic. He was actually a very brave little boy who faced abuse, drunk parents and failing grades. BUT he knew that life was amazing and grew into a man who inspires, energised and motivate all those that he touches or comes into contact with.

Through his book Wake Up And Dream you can create a life of your dreams.

Looking forward to hearing what your Dreams are……and to reading more about Wake Up and Dream. Will share more about this book over the next few weeks – every time I read more about this book the more I can see where my life is heading.

Here’s to Dreaming. May your dreams become your reason for living.

I Am Cursed!!

With a gene that makes my life more interesting. I am going to say that it goes way back in my family, because ever since I can remember my late Grandmother, and late Great Grandmother were Perfectionist. I am such a perfectionist, that I should have it as my middle name 🙂

Does It Drive Me Mad?

You have no idea. Sometimes It drives my husband mad, and my poor kids…..I must remember not to let them on here to answer that question!

So is being a perfectionist a good thing or a bad thing?

Sometimes it is a blessing, and other times – well lets say (to be polite) that it is a topic best left alone. Take this blog for example. I was writing about my 14 Day water fast. Then when the fast was over, I stopped writing here. I did not like the fact that I spent time away from my favorite hobby, but I stopped writing because I was not sure what to say. Sounds weird I know, but after spending so much time focusing on my amazing experience with fasting, and drinking water (and two days of juice) I felt like anything else I wrote here would be boring.

Hence the perfectionist coming out in me.

So yesterday, and today at work I was thinking about what I could write about. And soon enough it came to me……”Why Do I See Things Differently at work compared to others?”

Why Can I see how the needs of the resident’s are not being met?

Why Do I feel so deeply about the Resident needs when other carers are in and out of the room faster than you can blink an eye?

Why does it take me twice as long to shower/dress/make the bed/see that the resident is comfy with a glass of water – twice the amount of time because I take the time needed?

I wish sometimes that I was able to walk in, say nothing, get on with my business, and walk out. BUT then again that would not be me.

I have come to the conclusion that I will never make the cut as an aged care nurse. I am too slow, too caring, too proud (like to do a good job!), and to personal. I will never be able to shower/dress/clean/settle a resident in under 11 minutes. YEP you read right, we are only allowed 11 – 15 minutes per resident per morning – before breakfast.

How hideous does that sound?

I am also a firm believer in what you put out there – you will get back. So I do care. I do take time. I am a Perfectionist. I am proud that I was brought up with values (thankyou Grandma for loving me), and I am a person that likes to connect with the other person who is human….not just an object that needs to be attended to in under 15 minutes. Thank goodness that I have decided to study next year as a midwife, and this certificate III is only a stepping stone.

Next time, I will be letting you know how my two weeks hands on experience went, as a Perfectionist, I will be very honest with my feelings/thoughts and experiences. Because lets face it, we are all different and that is what makes this world an amazing place to live in.

Thank You To All The Perfectionist In this World!! Are You One Of Them?
