8 pieces of wisdom for you

I like to think of myself as a wise owl spreading wisdom or sometimes I have learnt it from my Mum, shes wise old owl – ha ha.

So here are 8 pieces of wisdom I wish to share with you.

  1. Words are powerful, use them wisely
  2. People come and go, but the right ones stay
  3. You are doing enough even if it doesn’t feel like it
  4. Failure is when you don’t try
  5. Random acts of kindness make everyone feel better
  6. Live for today and not for tomorrow
  7. Never look back, there is nothing there for you.
  8. Overthinking kills happiness

When writers block hits

You have all been there no doubt when you have so much passion to write but the words you want to write just don’t flow like they usually do.

I said in the last post that I was scared I was losing my mojo….wth all the disruption we’ve all had going on sometimes it’s hard to focus and have the motivation.

I am slowly getting back to it… and these are some things that are helping me get there.

1. Start with writing out all the answers to these questions…there are plenty of these on Pinterest

2. Think of all the topics you like writing about and put them in a spidergram and then add the legs of the spider with post ideas. It doesn’t have to be a rushed thing but it definitely helps

3. Read recent articles and other blogs for inspiration but never steal someone else’s hard work. You’re just there to get topic ideas that’s it.

I hope if you are ever stuck you could take one of these tips and use them.

Stay safe all

Much love 😘

Turn your life around

Change the way you think and how to do things and it’ll be pretty damn good.

❤️ Let go of those things that no longer serve me any happiness . If it doesn’t make you feel good, let it go.

❤️ Start over things I may hace tried in the past and not worked out but I don’t want to give up on it all together.

❤️ Move on. The people who have not been there for me when I needed them or wanted the company can stay in my past.

❤️ Get over it. The things that get me down but can’t be changed. Get over it and get on with it.

❤️Be positive. It’s the best way to be in life. It gets you nowhere being negative.

❤️ Keep going. When you aren’t quite at your destination or haven’t reached your goal, you just got to keep going til you get there.

❤️ Be healthy. It’s ok to have a treat once or twice a week but on the whole stay to a healthy diet and your body will thank you for it.

❤️ Stay focused. Concentrate on where you’re going and not where you’ve been.

❤️ Trust my gut. When you get that feeling something isn’t quite right 99.9% of the time your guts usually spot on.

❤️ Turn it around. If you make a little mistake don’t give up there and then, work on it and work through it.

❤️ Open new doors. If you aren’t getting satisfaction from whatever situation. Shut that door and go and open new ones.

❤️ Make a difference. The one thing thats so beautiful in life is make a difference to either yourself or someone else.

Improving you #1

You are under no obligation to be the same person you were

A year ago, a month ago, or even 15 mins ago.

you have the right to grow.

No apologies.

I believe that if you just stay in one place doing the same boring thing day in day out you won’t change, it’s pretty obvious.

Self-improvement is such a great thing to do and its so easy. you can do as little of it or as much of it as you like.

My advice is to do a little each day and don’t let anybody or anything get in your way. Set yourself goals along the way and reward yourself with whatever you like once you’ve smashed them.

I’ll be doing some more self-improvement posts over the month of March. So keep your peepers open to when I’ve posted them on here.

Hope your week is off to a great start and if it’s not, then make sure you change it.

Things that make us all happy……


MORE SLEEP

At the end of the day you can’t wait to get in your bed, to get warm, snuggle in and sleep your senses away. Then in the morning you don’t want to get up and snooze god knows how many times. Sleep is great so never deny yourself it. Get as much as you can

MORE MUSIC

I know music makes my day a happy one. A tune that takes you right back and makes your heart sing as well as you singing along. Music is so powerful, whether it’s a song or instrumental.

MORE TEA

It doesn’t have to be Tea. Just your favourite hot beverage that makes everything better for that moment in time. Mines a Options mint hot chocolate. Delicious. Come to think of it, it doesn’t make any difference if it’s a hot or cold drink it’s just one that makes you go mmmmm.

MORE BOOKS

A good book can make you happy and intrigued for hours. Some people just can’t stop buying books and divulging into them. Others just plod on through one but are equally as thrilled with the book.

MORE SUNSETS

When there’s better weather, a beautiful sunset makes you go wow and it’s so pretty to look at, until the sky goes black. Appreciating all the beauty of it. Then it’s a while til you see something so picturesque again. So if you can, get your camera out.

MORE CREATING

whatever form of creativity makes you happy, do it. Whether it’s writing, drawing, art and crafts or creating something on a bigger scale. Personally myself I like to dabble in a bit of all sorts.

MORE LONG WALKS

 

Going on a walk, either on your own, with a friend or a lover…or even in a group is really enjoyable if you have a lovely destination at the end of it and obviously the company makes it worth its while too.

MORE LAUGHTER

I will forever say this…Laughter is the best medicine, and the best form of therapy.  You won’t ever feel unhappy after laughing and that’s why i think it’s such a magical thing.

MORE HUGS

Giving someone a hug is a gift that can mean so much in a time of need, and can definitely turn a frown upside down. Most people love a hug. There is the few that aren’t fans.

 

MORE DREAMING

I don’t mean those dreams you have in your sleep that are all higgledy piggledy and don’t make sense at all. I’m on about the ones you want to become a reality. The ones you can work towards to make you happy as Larry. Keep dreaming and make them as big as you like.

MORE ROAD TRIPS

Nothing beats a road trip, with the best playlist and a friend who lets you forget all your worries and sing like a cat pissing in a biscuit tin. You don’t have to do them all the time but every once in a while if someone asks you, go. You’ll be smiling there and back for sure

MORE FUN

Fun can be anything you want it to be and as long as it’s making you happy and it’s not illegal, carry on having as much of it as you can. Fit some fun into your day and wear that grin with pride.

MORE LOVE

Love comes in all shapes and sizes and you can love a person, place or a thing.  The world needs more love and I tell you when you feel loved it’s a wonderful feeling. Love with your head and heart, body and soul.

What makes you Happy?

My current reads

I am not one to just stick to one book at a time so at the mo I have 3 that are in my to read pile.

I remember watching this on BBC with Sheridan Smith playing the role of Lisa Lynch. A woman who blogs about her cancer struggles but never let’s it define who she is. It’s been a while since I watched it so when I saw this book on the shelf for £1 I thought I must get this and read it.

I have suffered with anxiety for as long as I have been a teenager. So a very long time. Anything that gives me tips on how to combat it and maybe even get rid of it is worth a try. I know the speakmans do wonderful things with people with severe anxiety, fears and phobias. I am eager to get stuck into this book.

I absolutely love reading words of wisdom from the Dalai Lama online so thought if I can find a book of them then I’d buy it. It was only £3 so it was silly not to get it. Have read a few pages and I feel inspired by his words. You would too I just know it.

What books do you have on the go?
