It will tell you if you are being true to yourself every single time in every single way. If you are not listening to your heart, it will soon show in your actions and in your words, and basically in your life.

Follow What Your Heart Is Telling You.

Recently I have been tested in my direction of where I am going. At first I was not listening to my heart, and was following a path that was directed by someone else. At the time of when I was “Told” to enroll in another certificate for nursing I was so not into wanting to start the course. It was a Cert IV in Disability Care which is so not where I want to go with my nursing career.

Against my better judgement I decided to enrol in the course, and even start with the course. I went to the class room, and meet the teacher who was so passionate about her career, and has been in the Disability care nursing sector for over 19 years. After listening to so many of the students, and their reason for joining the course it soon became clear to me that I was not in the right room. I was torn between doing what was expected of me, and torn between listening to my heart 🙂

Listening To My Heart

Late last week I received a job offer in the mail, and was over the moon. I had applied for a job at the RSL in Caboolture in the “Dementia” ward. I had not heard for a few weeks so I thought the job had gone to someone else. When I woke up one day last week I was getting “Mentally” prepared to head out the door to hand out my resume to other Nursing Homes but again my heart was not “there” with wanting to go out and about. That morning while I was getting physically ready and my mindset ready, I actually said to David “Oh, there is the post man with our post. I bet my job offer comes in the post so I do not have to go out looking for work” – I was half-joking when I said it, and half hoping.

David came back from getting the post, with an amazed look on his face. In his hands was a letter from Caboolutre RSL. And yes inside the letter was the job offer that I had been waiting for!!!

Love how the Law Of Attraction worked that time for me 🙂

I knew then that my heart was heading in the right direction. I want to work for a brief period of time before having to study again. I just feel for me personally that my life is so full on that taking three days out of a week for 20 weeks to study is not in the best interest of the Woody Household nor in my best interest.

But what to do?

How do I not complete a course that I have signed up for? I am not a quitter by nature, so the decision of what to do was tearing me into two different directions!! Do I try to continue the course, or do I leave the course now. I actually had a fair bit of homework that was due for the Wednesday (just gone) if I was going to continue, and each and every single time I picked up the book to complete the homework I had no interest. That soon gave me my answer……My Heart was not in the course.

Listening to My Heart Felt Good!

After listening to my true inner feelings, I got in touch with my teacher, and sent an email. I rang my place of employment up and accepted the job offer, asking them if I was not enrolled in Cert IV would that affect my job offer. They reassured me that they preferred to do ‘In house training” with the RSL. Once I had made the decision to NOT complete the course a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.

I was following my heart and it feels amazing. I am being true to myself, my family and my time.

How are you following your heart?

Would love to hear your stories.

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 Today….

“Wake Up And Dream” by Pat Mesiti….. If you are new to this blog, I wrote a previous blog about the introduction of Wake Up And Dream. I discovered I am a Dreamer and I am so proud of it 🙂

Part One – Chapter One of “Wake Up And Dream”

Part One – Chapter One “You Can Change Your World”…… This chapter starts off with – “I believe the “average” person can change their world. In this book, which is the result of many years of learning and of good and bad experiences in my life, I will challenge you to become a dreamer. And more than that to become an achiever”.

How perfect is that statement? What a brilliant why to start a book off. and to get my interest….I also believe that every single person is born for a reason. We are placed on this world to be the best person we can be. It does not matter what we end up being, what matters is how we apply ourselves.

Growing Up !

When I was growing up my late Grandma had a big influence in my life. She was there for me in so many different ways…..from the physical sense of looking after me when I got home from School, to the emotional sense that when I had an issue I always gave my Grandma a call !!! I still remember her favorite saying “If you are doing a job, no matter how small a task is, give at least 100% to your job, if not give a 110%”…She was a big believer in achieving the best results that was possible by giving all of yourself and making sure the job was done “Just Right” !!! Gosh she was so wonderful with her outlook on life 🙂

Wake Up And Dream Today

Another statement that has touched me from Pat Mesiti Book “Wake Up and Dream” – “It’s not what happens or has happened to us in life that counts. It’s how we respond to what happens that’s important”…..Have you ever thought about that? Have you really thought about how you respond to what is happening in your world????

It really got me thinking…and I have to say “Wake Up and Dream” is the book I am addicted to at the moment with a passion. What is your favorite statement that gets you thinking about how you can be the best of the best that you were born to be?

I will leave you with this thought from the Book “Wake Up And Dream” – “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!” – So are you satisfied with the status quo, or do you know that you need to improve.

Thanks Pat Mesiti – your book is becoming my new best least it is when I am getting the chance to read it 🙂

“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.

You Create Your Own Life.

Law Of Attraction…..What does that really mean. It is a saying that seems to be really popular. Where ever you go, who ever you speak to, the saying is bound to come up in conversation sooner or later.

It is a broad statement, and can be taken many different ways. I am a big believer in “What you put out there you will get back”…..So it does not matter what vibes you are transmitting to the universe. What You Think About Comes About.

The Secret

It is so very true…..I am not sure if you are like me, But when I first watched “The Secret” it actually took me a little while to believe the concept. Maybe I am a slow learner, or maybe it was my up bringing. Whatever the reason is, I was very unsure about “The Secret”. Once I read a few books, and googled the Secret on YouTube I started to see what the message is behind the (messages) scenes of “The Secret”.

I started thinking about little things at first. I guess you could say I was testing the waters – or testing the Universe.  Soon the asking got bigger and better. Soon enough the things that I was asking for came about. It was very spooky when I first started asking, and believing…..Now that I know What You Think About Comes About I am being very careful with my thoughts.

Your Thoughts.

Does that mean I have to “guard” all of my thoughts? Not at all, actually that would be impossible to do because thoughts are going through our brain constantly, even when we are asleep 🙂 What it does mean is that when a “negative” thought (or a thought I do not agree with) pops up into my head, then I stop and change that thought around….

It’s very simple to do. Are you practicing “The Law Of Attraction”? If not why not? Do you need to know how to attract what your heart desires? Let me know what your thoughts are, and then I can answer your ideas in  the next installment of “What You Think About Comes About” here at Woodys house 🙂
