Breaking the habit

Breaking the habit coverSometimes my best topics for when writing my blog, come from when I am instantly going through something. I have just finished putting a second layer of paint on 12 square canvases for a feature wall for my sons bedroom. I didn’t plan to blog today, but had a sudden urge to write. This kind of messes up my plans for today as this is a shorter day for me as it is choir day. As I type this I immediately put on ‘Breaking the habit’ by Linkin Park. ( One of my fav bands) Very suited for this topic.

Anyway. I was laying in my bed, with my phone in my hand. I switched onto instagram and began looking at pictures. Usually I look at pictures that inspire me, nature, love, interior design, exterior design, art work etc. This is all good but after a morning in morning out, week after week month after month it’s starting to turn into a habit and an excuse not to get out of bed and to start my day early.

Ok so I was suppose to be continuing with my organising if you have seen my @analaigh instagram you will know what I am talking about. Anyway’s I am always looking to improve and learn, which is great the down side to it, is that I sign up to these webinars, and online thingy’s and emails and stuff and then I never seem to get to watch them as they launch.

Thank goodness they record them, otherwise I would be just wasting my time and have an over subscribed full of mail in my inbox.

Anyhoo there is one webinar that I decided to watch. Bearing in mind I was in the middle of clearing up and organising and sorting out. (It’s a crafters life) The video was almost two hours long, I was like really I don’t have two hours, but alas I had to find that two hours. I was so glad I did  because I got some really interesting tip bits that I can apply to my blogs and website. Continue reading “Homework”

Be Mindful


If you have ever felt as though your life is swiftly passing you by. You are right, it is. Not because time has sped up in the past 10 to 15 years but because you have allowed it to.  We feel as though we don’t get a chance to enjoy it.  Well you don’t. You are so busy with everything that is going on with your life and what is not going on with your life, that you are turning into one big ball of negative energy.

So how do we fix this? Well it is simple. You need to stop and take stock of what is happening around you. When I mean take stock I mean the whole stock. Here is my short.

Once upon a time I would get up every morning and I was always in a lull. I knew what I had planned for the day, my goals would be set and all I had to do was to go and achieve them, however something was missing. Fast forward. I realised, it was my sleeping environment.  Without hesitation I started decorating my bedroom. Including  buying new bedsheets and light fittings. Continue reading “Be Mindful”

Some days your life seems like a vast nothing. You are busy sure. With house work, family, kids, work, hobbies. Your social life is on the up, but yet you feel as though something is missing. No matter how busy you are, or connected with others and your family. No matter how successful you are, you some how feel a loss of connection with yourself.

For some people this is spiritual. A connection that they may need from something that they can not see but can feel. For some, it is the fact that somehow you lost yourself when you were on the quest for being perfect. There is no need to stay on this path and the moment you realise that something is missing from your life, you have the power to do something about it.
