Month of Love- keep it positive

I know, I know there are plenty of people out there who can not stand, shall I dear say it. Valentines day. There are so many negatives that are associated with the V word. Cheesey, exploitation, money, etc. For others, they like to take this day as a day of fun, happiness and a reason to go all out, when in normal circumstances, they probably … Continue reading Month of Love- keep it positive

Are you investing in yourself?

invest-in-yourselfWe invest so much into our lives. Cleaning house, food and clothes shopping, going out with friends, family do’s. Because of this we make the assumption that we are making our lives better. To some point we are, especially if we manage to keep on top of these things that I have listed above. Investing in yourself goes beyond just the obvious and the immediate especially if you are looking to grow as a person. If you are looking to overcome certain flaws and improve on characteristics that you lack. There is so much out there to get to that point; Online, books, TV radio; they are all out there for us to drink and explore.

Some how we manage to not go the extra mile to better ourselves. We accuse time and money as the culprit to stopping us from doing something about it, when in fact it is all in our heads. There is no reason as to why we can not choose to better ourselves in one form or another. We spend time thinking about it, but end up doing nothing about it.

Walking Shoes

the-walkWhether you are on a conquest to fullfill your destiny or beat fate at its own game, your journey can not go on without your walk. Ok that might be a little dramatic, but you get my drift. You can either choose to strut your stuff like you own it or you can walk bare feet and continue to walk on thorns. Either way we are all on a journey. There is no trains or planes, no bikes or cars just you and your paths and roads. Sometimes the paths and roads will have short cuts and can be quick and others are long and arduous.

These are the type of thoughts that are needed to keep you going. The struggle is all too real and sometimes not fun at all. When the days and weeks feel long and hard, the walking shoes just want to come off and you would want to perch yourself at the side of the road. Now there is nothing wrong in resting for a short while, but how many people and how much time are you going to let pass before you put back on your shoes.

Beautiful things can still grow.

orchidsThere are too many moments in my life when I allow situations to bring up my stress levels. Business, environment, choosing a secondary school for my son, what to cook, what to wear, shopping and the list goes on and on. There are times when it is hard to find a happy or peaceful moment in a minute let alone a week or even a day. No matter how hard you try, sometimes life finds a way of beating you down. Sometimes this is our own doing and other times, it is just the way things are. However how we deal with it is entirely up to us. We can allow life to disturb our happy place or moments or we can create and hold onto them.

In life it can be just the little things that causes us anxiety and stress even if to other people they may seem small. To us they can start of small and grow out of control. What do you choose to do about it? I am always working on maintain happy moments days nad weeks in my life as we are only here for a short while. It is not easy but if you can find just that one thing to at least open the door it can grow from there.

7 days


Ok it is 6.00am on Friday 16th September, winter is coming and it still amazes me the transformation from light to dark, as we draw near to the last quarter. It was only last week that at this time there was quite a bit of light. The early dark mornings fills my head with visons of socks on at home, a jumper, heating and hot coco. I really don’t mind the change, it just reminds me how wonderful this glorious earth is. It is like magic. A lot can happen in 7 days, we don’t always see it coming, whether it be subtle or drastic. Whether it will be something exciting, good, mediocre or bad. Sometimes the change can come from things that we have been doing weeks or months before or sometimes just out of the blue.

Well what happens when you haven’t had one of those weeks. Nothing has changed, well at least not much to write about or shout from the roof tops. I don’t know about you but I get those days where I feel as though it is time for a shift in my life, something that makes me feel as though that this week or next week is not the same as the last 10 weeks.

When in doubt lay it out

When in doubt coverHave you ever gone through life where, you are completing all the tasks that you set out to do, making you closer to your goals, however you feel so incomplete and you just do  not know where you are going wrong?  Most of all you feel like quitting. I do all too often. This starts to make me fear that I am not going to accomplish what I set out to do even though I am completing steps to make them happen. All of the sudden I see a long road that leads to no where. I start to doubt what I am doing and even doubt why I am doing it and I end up feeling lost and so confused.

It is weird cause this comes when I am taken action and taking steps to see improvement in my life. If I was doing nothing then that will explain it all, but when I am taking action and it leads me  to a place where I am even more confused. I am even more confused. How can one be working everyday and focusing and taking each hour as it comes planning and scheduling and also allowing a little free for all with my planning and thinking and still end up in a place, where I feel as though I have nothing planned or mapped out.  HERE IS WHAT I DO!

90 day success challenge day 1

90 day success challenge day 1So I awoke in my bed the same as always. The same to do list that I cannot seem to get down and something new added every single day. I did not want to start this day  Tuesday July 19th 2016 the same as all the rest. This day has to be different. This isn’t the first time that I woke up feeling that things are not right and their needs to be a drastic shift in my life, but today was the day. This day I have had enough. There comes a time in your life when you hit bottom and you think that this is the day when you are going to do something about it, but instead there is still more bottom. 10 years later you start to believe is there any kind of bottom because you have not reached it yet. In my case I think that my bottom has me floating, not going down any further but not making any head way to the top. The problems and frustrations just keep changing, but they are not drastic to view it as a new bottom so I stay floating. New things enter my life, good things as well as not so good things, and it may seem like my life is better, but really it isn’t. I always convince myself that it is because I have achieved something really good, that I haven’t achieved before. But you now what. SO WHAT! Because the end results just keeps me floating at the bottom. In light of this I saw a vision, a vision called Day 1. Continue reading “90 day success challenge day 1”
