๐ŸŒปLessons for all of us - a little something for everyone๐ŸŒป

Fiona from Henderson

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short โ€“ enjoy it.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short โ€“ enjoy it.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don't worry, God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to be happy. But it's all up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need
42. The best is yet to come...
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Something we should be doing automatically ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ‘

Fiona from Henderson

France has started forcing supermarkets to donate food instead of throwing it away.
Something we should be doing here, instead they ship it off to the pig farms.

France has started forcing supermarkets to donate food instead of throwing it away.
Something we should be doing here, instead they ship it off to the pig farms.
This article (see link below) is well worth a read.
There are far too many rules, PC police around the corner and still in this day and age, we are starving, our friends are going hungry, our children are starving. They going with out the basic stables to keep on living a healthy life.
Yet, the supermarkets, the restaurants, the fast food outlets etc ... continually throw away perfectly good, healthy food.
To me, this is totally unacceptable. We are throwing away more that we are consuming, both in the supermarkets etc ... and our homes.
I remember when baking our own bread, cakes etc .. was cheaper than buying, not so much now.
Buying healthy food is far more expensive than buying fast food and/or unhealthy options. WHY?
I know that I went slightly off course with the last two sentences, but this whole topic really gets my blood boiling, the waste, the expense - EVERYTHING.
Our friends, our families, our neighbourhoods are hungry - let's do something.

Hi Neighbours & neighbouring areas!

So these school holidays, my kids are having this debate on which is better, Marmite or Vegemite?? They were also curious to know how New Zealanders felt about it, so I thought this will be a great place to start. I've recently switched to Vegemite, after being a loyal Marmite advocate, I find it's less intense haha! What about you?? Marmite or Vegemite?

Rhea Kirstienne from Te Atatu South

Hi, everyone! My partner and I are looking for a labradoodle puppy to kickstart our plans of starting a family. We are both dog lovers and have previously owned pets before.

My partner and I are looking for a labradoodle puppy to kickstart our plans of starting a family. We are both dog lovers and have previously owned pets before. We are aware that there are good breeders out there but itโ€™s just too expensive especially considering there is a need to put in a non-refundable deposit of up to $400 to secure your spot on the waiting listโ€”I researched and contacted a few of them. We are hoping to not spend more than $800 or $1,000 for one, and would be better if we can adopt for free. We specifically want a labradoodle because it low to nonshedding and this is important because I have allergic rhinitis. Any suggestions or recommendations are welcome. Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜Š
