This morning on my back verandah as the doves coo, the geckoes bark, the parrots all sing, and distant rooster crows, water droplets drip from the verandah roof onto the garden....... there is still a beautiful and peaceful quietness about it all.
And time for me to just appreciate and be grateful. An essential part of my day in order to create balance.
I wonder how many working couples or families allow for 'quiet time', rather than getting out of bed, turning on the TV and having a day filled with constant noise. Argghh I could think of nothing worse!
I hope YOU are having some quiet time in your day.
Till next time

How To Be Your Own Best Parent
Loving yourself is the beginning. Regardless of your goal, be it harmonious relationships with your partner and your family, or financially orientated targets, do not underestimate the power of self-love. It – or the lack of it - is at the core of everything. And just like an apple, the more juice on the inside, the tastier life tastes.
But, as so much else in the personal development field, self-love is easier said than done. Loving yourself is so much more than indulging in some long denied desire, or lying in a bubble bath surrounded by scented candles while relaxing music soothes your jagged edges.
It’s Up To You
Loving yourself begins first and foremost with the recognition that if you are not in a place of well-being inside yourself, it’s up to you to do something about it. This should become your priority.
Imagine you are the parent of a small child. Your child is upset, or sad, or angry or frightened, You, as loving parent of the child, would attempt to help the child move to a better place inside. You might embrace the child, talk about what is going on, or do any number of things to help the child see the situation with new eyes in order to feel better about it.
But in order for this to happen you wouldneed to be closely connected to your child, you would need to have strong communication with your child, and you would need to be totally aware of your child’s feelings. Furthermore, you’d need to want to be there for your child.
Be Your Own Parent
By now you’ve probably figured out that I’m giving you an analogy about how you need to be dealing with yourself. In order to show yourself that you love yourself (because that’s how it starts), you must be aware of yourself and your feelings at all times and be conscious or aware enough to choose to do something about them at all times.
Does that mean that you would never allow yourself to feel pain or sorrow or worry or have any other type of negative feeling? Does it mean you would keep yourself in some iron grip of control so that you would not have those feelings? Absolutely not! But it does mean that you would be willing to choose to focus elsewhere in order to help yourself move to a better place inside.
Choose To Focus On Something More Positive
Worrying about your business, your income or your relationship takes you nowhere. It is much more proactive to resolve whatever is going on in your life. You can attempt to resolve it by allowing it a certain amount of time per day – but only that amount of time - in your life, brainstorming, consulting, researching about the situation, and you would then choose to focus on something else in order to help yourself move to a better place inside. This is what you do for those that you love.
If you start today, right now, this eveningyou will already feel better about how you are dealing with yourself. You’ll recognize that you’ve taken some steps to love yourself. And a part of you will feel just as loved as the child who has been enveloped in the loving arms of a caring and emotionally generous adult parent. This will bring you ever closer to inner peace and freedom, and this will bring you joy and who knows what else...

Have you stopped to think about what your ideal holiday would be? Perhaps cruising the Whitsundays in
What if your fabulous holiday idea offered the opportunity for you to not only save money when you book, but earn an income as well? What if you then told others about your great savings – imagine how good would it feel knowing you’ve helped others save money and earned an income as well? Sound too good to be true?
When a good friend of mine told me about it, I decided to taker a closer look. I trusted her and thought ‘what have I got to lose?’ I travel often, so the thought of saving myself some money had me interested, and I knew that if this was as great as it sounded, I certainly knew plenty of people who would want to know about it!
So I got all the facts, and after a close look, I decided that this really was a ‘no brainer’. What’s more, my membership gave me:
· 6 Nights/7 Days Vacation in a 3-5 Star Property
· 1 Free Return Domestic Flight with the purchase of a Flight (excl. taxes & surcharges)
· Lifetime access to Company promotional deals
· A Self Replicating Personalized Website
· A Virtual Office to manage your Business
· One click access to discounted travel deals
So if you’re as excited as I was by all of the above, then you owe it to yourself to contact me, and I’ll tell you what you need to do! I’ll answer any questions you may have, and if you decide you want to also make the most of the Business Opportunity attached with this great Company, I’ll be available to Coach & help you each step of the way.

At the stroke of recession, when the world economy slept, TVI Express rouse to a new business model with a benign thought of "Touching Lives Globally by making millionaires!" On 1st Feb 2009, it was just a thought, by the end of Feb, 2009 with a network of 2500 members and a map overlay of 50 countries, this thought became a hope and now on 1st Feb, 2010 with a flamboyant network of over 600,000 members in 160 countries, we have become a legendary record-breaking success story.
At the dusk of 2009, we started on an unending quest and thereafter trackless days and months were filled with our striving and grandeur of success and failures which enabled us to grow many folds. TVI Express maintained the sight of its quest and today after a journey full of struggle by the end of a small period of one year, we have discovered new horizons.
The achievements we celebrate today is but a step, an opening of opportunity, to the greater triumphs and achievements that await us. We define growth worth it if the masses grow with us! Every ethical business opportunity is first framed for the benefit of the people and then for the entrepreneur. And as we are a strong believer of the same, our Company has generated numerous millionaires in a couple of months and turned common people into highly successful Business Entrepreneurs.
Touching Lives Globally is a vast goal which just not ensures that our members live a richer lifestyle but also ensures that our members are upgraded to be in synchrony with the hi-tech modern practises. And visibly we have achieved this too! An infant TVI Express, from its journey of infancy to childhood has made laptops an indispensable part of the lives of the ones who never knew what internet is. Hence, each TVIite is groomed 360 degrees in both professional and personal attributes.
Not only this, with the launch of our vacation packages we have felt that we haven’t just touched the lives but also touched hearts globally! Those who always aspired to have a feel of a luxurious lifestyle not just lived it but treasured it during the TVI Vacations and the contentment thus reflected on their faces was worth much beyond our payouts.
Other than the above there are numerous such achievements which proudly make us announce that we are making positive differences in lives of people worldwide. The happiness on each face to be his own boss, the pride each home-maker carried to be the bread-earner of the family, the independence each teenager cherished to now support his own self and the complacency each parent relished in fulfilling the desires of their children ............................... is what we have earned in this journey of a year!
We are amongst a handful companies in the world which is growing at a rate of 200% each month not just in terms of our member-base but also in terms of popularity. Each month our network is doubling and each fine day our website experiences 100,000 unique hits. We have an average monthly ranking of 5000 on world-wide web as per Alexa with over 3000 new members joining us everyday.
The figures achieved and the hearts conquered are both the contribution of our member-base who didn’t just make TVI Express business a family but also made our basic principle of "People helping people!" a grand success by actually following it and articulating the same to the roots. Hence, today on the occasion of one year of our togetherness, we at TVI Express take immense pleasure in expressing our gratification to the member fraternity for making us what we are today and for paving the path of our continuous success.
Thanks a ton for all your support today, tomorrow and always! TVI Express has become a multi million dollar success story because of the fact that the base, the escorts of TVI Express are all worth a billion in terms of their dedication.
