Head over what?

C6F0138B-6AF6-4581-A1F2-14852998CD19When it comes to those things that really mean something in your life, like big things. The ones that you have to make a decision on, depending how you feel.

 So do you listen what your head is saying or how it makes your heart feel… here’s my thoughts on it…

Things that are going to impact your life, every aspect of it, of course Thought and consideration comes into play. But it’s really how it makes you feel when you envision yourself already having it.

I know when that thing has made me smile from ear to ear it’s a feeling of happiness and joy.
So I think I believe it’s heart over head. But each person their own look on it I guess.

 

WHEN YOU BELIEVE

When it really comes down to it, you become the person you believe you’d become.

If you spend all your thoughts believing you won’t make it, you will never make it.

If you spend all your thoughts thinking that it’s impossible, it becomes impossible for you.

But if you spend your thoughts and energy believing it is possible, it suddenly becomes possible.

Doors will open for you, ideas will come your way. Your dreams will start coming true. You have everything you need within you to live your dreams,

But first of all you have to believe

MONDAY MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES

I know the weekend was probably great and you didn’t want to wake up this morning because Monday always happens after Sunday 🙈

So I’ve found a few positive quotes about Mondays

If you wallow in the fact it’s Monday you won’t get stuff done so go out and create the life you want.

I like to think of every week as a fresh, so Mondays are just that. Fresh starts to do great things with your life.

If you don’t have a plan for the days ahead you have no vision. So get planning.

I love this song. It’s a reminder that it takes a little effort but if you put your back into it you can do it, do it, DO IT. sorry was breaking out into song then 😂

Happy Monday… Make yours motivational physically and mentally.

The January Blues

It’s 2 weeks since Christmas and when all was merry and it was all about celebrations.

Now we are heading for the middle of January and a New year may not sit well with some people.

The weather is pretty dismal, the nights are still starting at half 4 🙈

Although we can’t click our fingers and magic it better instantly, we can try and do little bits to make us happier.

* Find some happy music, make a playlist of all your feel good songs. Play it loud, feel it on your soul.

* When you get a little bit of a dry day, take advantage of it. Perfect opportunity to take yourself for a walk, or to the shops for a nosey. Fresh air is good and nature on your walk is beautiful. Appreciate the little things.

* Have a mass sort out. Decluttering is so therapeutic. Throw out all the stuff you no longer need. Then organise what you’re keeping and you’ll have satisfaction when it’s all done.

* Make a conscious effort to fuel your body when you are having low times as it gives you strength. I sound like my Mother now. Make some of your favourite meals.

* Take that bath before bed, or a bit of pampering. It’ll relax you and I believe that a bit of self love is an instant feel good factor.

Well there’s a little list of things to get rid of your blues… Hopefully.

Let’s do 2020

I found this one on we heart it and thought it was quite apt for this post.

Taking any bad vibes into 2020 will do you no favours. So if you are one of those that likes to start a fresh every new year this is for you.

Things that no longer serve you with happiness in your life need to be left in 2019.

Some see the new year as just another day but me personally I see it as a positive thing.

Change is 99.9% always a good idea 😘

Wishing you all a Happy New year and may 2020 be fab in every way xxx

10 years ago to now

Let’s take you back 10 years to the year 2009.

That January I had started the year with a hurting heart from being dumped just after Christmas. Turned out the bloke was a right dickhead.

I had lost a bit of weight in 2009 too after having my gallbladder out a few months before, so I was about 8 and a half stone.

Mum and me were also searching for a house as we had sold our house and needed to find one fast to move into. It was part of her divorce so decided to look for rented property. Just after Christmas that year we found it and moved in there in the Jan of 2010.

So now it’s the end of 2019 and wow what a year its been.

I started the year having my bladder out, and having a stoma, which has been quite a problematic thing so more surgery is needed soon.

I have found out who I really am, with my spirituality, my sexuality (I will fall in love with whoever I find attractive regardless of gender … Simple as that) and found out how strong I can be in shitty situations.

I’ve lost a friend I thought would always have my back, her loss. But also gained a really awesome friend she was in my year at school and I’m so glad to have her in my life as she makes me laugh so much and it feels like we’ve been good friends since like forever.

December Favourites

The last Favourites of the year. I really do like looking at all the previous months as well and see what made me happy.

I’ll leave the previous 11 at the bottom of this post if you want to have a nosey.

Here is some of Decembers bits that have made me happy.

ALIEN PERFUME DEODORANT

I never knew that I could get my favourite perfume in a deodorant/body spray until I was nosing on the perfume shop website and there it was. For 100ml it’s just perfect to fit inside a handbag. Smells beautiful. I am forever getting compliments on the scent, so it’s a no brainer to at least go get a spray of it yourself at your local chemist.

PINK WIG

DC9DB70B-50B5-4642-A61F-B54252E5E1CC

Most of you would’ve seen me wearing a couple of wigs as I’m a bit fed up of the length it is so until it’s a bob style I’ll be wearing one of my 3 wigs. This is the one I love at the moment, it is very me as I love pink.

IPAD COVER

FDEF6163-E86C-48A4-A945-A64DE684B3FA

I have had an iPad for a year or so now, but I now have a pencil I can use to draw on it, a cheaper one than the Apple Pencil so I needed a cover that would keep it with the iPad so this is it. It’s very girly and practical. I love it.

DIARY AND JOURNAL

Collage 2019-12-27 15_33_50.jpg

Both of these are from Paperchase, one was a gift (the 5 mins before bed) and then i bought the pink one (one day one question). I love a diary/journal to write in…it’s just remembering to do it everyday. So these will be in eyeshot so I make them a habit to do.

FOOD

1CAF2832-0AA6-45C4-B028-648ED9BB913B

These have always been the ones I reach for out of all the Haribo sweets. But it’s been about 20 years that I’ve been calling them Tangfantastics until a few days ago I spotted its Tanfastics 🙈

SONG

I heard this song on the radio one evening in bed and thought it was so lovely. The original is of course great but I thought Celine Dions voice was so pure.

QUOTE

52D0D684-62FF-4758-BC63-C27FA664CD1CThis is a quote to remind all that the best thing you need to try and be is yourself.
