Quieting the Noise – Little Reminders


We are human.

We are not perfect.

We are alive.

We try things.

We make mistakes.

We stumble. We fall.

We get hurt. We rise again.

We try again.

We keep learning.

We keep growing.

And we are thankful

For this priceless

Opportunity called life.

I’ll be honest, I haven’t been meditating as much as I should recently. I have felt stressed, frazzled and had very little energy, even for the things I enjoy. We all struggle sometimes.

So, it’s a good time for some little reminders from the Quieting the Noise journey.


Why is Resilience Important?

Resilience helps us to protect ourselves against overwhelming experiences and mental health difficulties. The world and life is stressful. I am constantly learning, adapting, and changing my methods. Please get in touch with what has worked for you.

Here are some ideas I have tried successfully and a little self-reminder to do more of this:


Minute Meditations

Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, even you!!!

I realise ten minutes or more is difficult for a lot us. Me included, and I’m not new to it.

So, here are some quick minute meditations:

Dealing with Overwhelm

Modern life is complex.

I’ve out together some tips I have found useful and again a good little reminder for me too.

  • Stop and breathe
  • Circle of control
  • Acknowledge the feeling
  • Pinpoint the primary source
  • Set boundaries on your time and workload
  • Challenge your perfectionism
  • Outsource or delegate
  • Challenge your assumptions

It’s always important to remember even if you make mistakes, repeat bad habits, stumble, fall or quit, rise again. It is never too late to start over.

Why is Photography Important?

I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.

You see stories, memories and keepsakes are important. Life is short. Our humanity is what makes us beautiful. The light will never look or be seen the same again and neither will we. We will never have this moment again. So, let’s capture it!
