De-clutter Your Life Inside and Out and Create a Happier Life

Reflect on your families’ present state. In many cases you know that  you need to change the way you are managing your family. You can’t always put your finger on what is making you frustrated, unsettled or down. Your own desires can be muddied by concern for your children or spouse and by simply being out of touch with your feelings.

I find that the best way to do this is to write down my thoughts, concerns and desires. 

I know that this is not easy for everyone so, you may want to follow the following strategies;

Make a diary of a day in your life. Write down from the moment you and your family wake what happens and how it makes you feel. Pretend you are talking to a close friend at the end of a hard day.

Sum up the present state of your life as though you are writing a letter to a very close friend and catching them up on what is going on in your life at this time. Limit this to one or two pages.

Create your own wish list. Be outrageous. It would pay to divide it up according to what is possible, likely, requires a miracle then short and long term goals. Be positive, as what limits us most in life is our thoughts and fears of failure.

‘What if I only had one year to live?’ I ask myself  this question when I need perspective in my life, as should you. Map out what you can do to ensure your families future and the direction that you desire for your children.

Personal values. Write down what you care most about and what your philosophies are. How does it relate to the family as a unit and each member individually. Evaluate your children’s responsibilities to themselves and others? What motivates each one of you most? What is the balance you believe should be for work, family and friends?

Once you have had a chance to review everything that you have written down it will be time to come up with a plan of action. When listing your final plan and goals, make sure your plan has the following:

Specific time frames. Put specific times in which each undertaking should be completed by.

Attainability – Your goals should be in sink with your personal strengths and weaknesses.

Measure it – Don’t be general. Set a specific goal and its outcome…

Take the Family on an African Safari – Tips Inside

Taking the family on an African Safari can be a once in a lifetime experience, and should be planned out carefully. First there are several different travel services offering these safaris, and you will want to check with each one to make sure you are getting the most for your money. There are some things that you need to consider. One of them is that they should be taking you to see the big five in African wildlife, Lions, elephants, rhinoceros, water buffalo, and even leopards.
A full package deal is not just about the animals, but also about the culture of the native people. A good vacation package will include visits to local tribes, and even staying with them overnight. You will experience their daily lives, what they do for fun, and maybe even go on an excursion or two with them.
The next thing you need to consider is that these trips are not cheap, nor are they short. Your average price tag is around $12,000 per adult, and that is based on double occupancy. The cap on many child discounts, is usually age 11, although some can be as high as twelve or thirteen. This also doesn’t include airfare from you home city to the place where the safari starts. These are also long trips, some last up to 11 days. Make sure your kids and older family members are up to it.
