How to make 2017 better than 2016

I believe 2017 will be a better year than 2016 if we:

  • Focus less on ourselves and more on others
  • Really listen to people's conversations rather than put our own slant on things
  • Show empathy to others, especially when we may feel uncomfortsble with the other person
  • Know that bad behaviour is often a sign that people are struggling so reflect rather than condemn
  • Never feel justified in displaying anger and hurting others
  • Be humble every minute of the day
  • Give thanks for every moment of your life
  • Know that struggle is the key to growth - you'll never grow as a person on Easy Street
  • Know that Love is the answer to everything, absolutely everything
    Amen (so be it)


This was brought to you by Blue Skies Fellowship Incorporated, a registered not for profit organisation based in the Margaret River Region of Western Australia.

We believe in service to humanity is an integral part of what it mean to be human. Serving with humility and grace. We offer support for people in need. We also offer international support for the disabled. We rely solely on private funding to achieve our work. Please feel free to explore this web site to find out more.

An important part of maximising our day to ensure we are of service, is to be aware that we we are maximising our time in the present moment, which means not focusing on the future or the past. To help us achieve this we use the techniques of Mindfulness and Contemplation. Many of the posts and information on this web site relate to being more present in the "now" through Mindfulness and other Meditative techniques. To further this we offer training in Mindfulness and also the recognised therapeutical tool of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Thank you.
